1. "When we received the good news that we were the lucky winners of Univision's, Channel 41 "La Boda De Tus Suenos" ("The Wedding of Your Dreams": 11/16/07) we were filled with joy.... followed by, "Oh my God"! - Panic. We were to exchange vows in front of millions. From the moment we met Omar, we knew we were in good hands. It was obvious that his professionalism was backed up by experience and a genuine interest in having the ceremony play out exactly the way we always dreamed it to be. Omar took his time to explain to us every minute detail of the ceremony and answered all of our questions thoroughly, offering advice and suggestions that made our wedding not just special, but Spectacular! Thank you so much, Omar."

3.“- Seven, Seven, Two Thousand Seven- A Non-Traditional Urban Wedding - The New Generation
Some may say tradition is an inherited pattern of thought or action, a specific practice long standing or as I would say, a customary way of operation remotely lingering on pastimes. If so, then the inherited pattern of tradition intended as a guide can be altered, modified and or changed to define the unknown and unpredictable phenomenon that causes an event to result one way rather than another.

People may choose to have a luxurious, extravagant wedding where the outcome may have little or poor fundamental value. On seven, seven, 07’ we chose to break some of the old tradition as we joined together to make room for our own, exercising more of the fundamental value we enjoyed sharing with all.

-You can have a wedding without the music they make, you can have a wedding without cake, you can have a wedding without a dress, but when it comes to Omar officiating your wedding it will become a success!!!

Thank You so much,"

4.“I wanted to take a minute to send you a note of thanks. When my fiancée said to me on December 9th, 2005 that she wanted to get married in New York on December 18th, 2005 I thought she was crazy! However, I was open to the idea and told her to get some information. By late morning on December 12th, 2005 she told me that she had found three people in New York who would handle the wedding ceremony for us. You happened to be one of the three. After she spoke with you and the other two people we discussed the three of you. It was our feeling that you were the most flexible and had the best pricing and experience! As things turned out because of the transportation strike and weather we soon found out how important the flexibility would be. You were awesome to work with and our wedding ceremony in Central Park on a beautiful Sunday evening was very memorable. Words can't explain! Thanks for making our special day such a wonderful experience. You made two people from Iowa very happy!! We would be happy to recommend you to anyone. If you end up on the Dr. Phil show some day, be sure to mention our names. Best Regards!"

"Yet another testimonial from the newlywed couple, only this time it's from the Brides perspective. Deciding to marry in N.Y.C. just seven days before hand was stressful and exciting. Your website was very informative and easy to navigate. Speaking with you personally after viewing the site put me at ease instantly. You were very helpful and knowledgeable in preparing us for our special day. The wedding ceremony was unforgettable. The setting itself was quaint and elegant, your services added the perfect touch, sincere and moving yet short and sweet, just what we wanted. Thank you again for your time and helping make our first day together as husband and wife one of the most memorable days we will share together!"

6."Thank you so much Mr. Lopez for such a wonderfully performed and beautiful wedding ceremony. From the introduction to the lighting of the candle we were both moved to tears.

7."Dear brides and grooms to be,

My husband and I got married this past September (9/2006) in Tarrytown, New York.

I started looking for an officiant about a year before the big day. I "googled" the word officiate and got about a million results. I started looking at web sites....a lot of web sites. By chance I came across Omar Lopez's web site - www.marriagenyc.com and decided to call him. I was impressed by his enthusiasm and knowledge about planning a wedding. In addition to his step by step approach for choosing the ceremony that was right for us, he also gave us room to share our ideas. He always made me feel important as his client.

The big day arrived and I was so nervous. He was one of the first people I saw that day that was able to calm my nerves. It wasn't in his job description but Mr. Lopez just has a calm, positive personality that helped me at that time.

Our ceremony was perfect (really). We dodged Hurricane Ernesto by about 12 hours and the sun came out as soon as Mr. Lopez greeted the guests. Now I'm not saying that Mr. Lopez brought the sun to my wedding (it wasn't in the contract, hee-hee) but he was a great officiant.

Mr. Lopez loves what he does. In all the pictures of the ceremony, he is smiling. I think that's a true representation of who he is. He is professional, caring, dynamic and organized! He helped my husband and I create a wedding ceremony that was personal and true to who we are. Thank you Omar!"

With love,
• Carmen L.& Chris F.

8."I would just like to thank you so much for all your help, Omar. You were extremely helpful and patient with my husband and I. Unfortunately due to an unforeseen event you were unable to marry us, but you found us someone who was able to marry us, who did an excellent job and you made sure everything went well till the day of the wedding. I felt like you always took time out of your busy schedule to call me and make sure I had no questions or concerns about the wedding. You were always on top of things and made my husband and I feel very happy and worry free because you are someone that knows what they are doing. You were very professional and very helpful all the way till the end. We sincerely appreciate all of your generosity and we'd definitely recommend other couples to have you officiate their wedding anytime. Thank you."

9. Thank you. You are a gentleman and a scholar. I was thinking about a testimonial for your portfolio. And, it would be something about what a fantastic weekend Marie and I spent visiting NY. And, how working with Marriagenyc, Inc. was completely professional and helpful with every planning aspect, and how Omar was completely affable, available and accommodating of any special request, especially meeting our time constraints and international paperwork coordination. We certainly could not have done it without his help. And, without reservation whatsoever I would recommend Omar Lopez and Marriagenyc, Inc. to anyone considering a wedding ceremony in New York City. I don't know how you could select a better officiate. Thanks again Omar.

10.“Dear Mr. Lopez,

From our first meeting I knew that you were the perfect officiant to marry us. I remember talking about the meeting with my sister Ruthie and all she kept telling me was "he is very professional, and knows his stuff" lol. From that moment on i knew our search for an officiant was over.

Thank you for attending the rehearsal dinner. My wedding party of 20 really appreciate the directions you and advice you gave them as to what to do the day of the wedding. You made it fun and comfortable for them. The actual ceremony was superb! Thanks to you our ceremony was special and personal. During the reception we received nothing but positive words for how great you spoke during the ceremony. Once again, we thank you for making everything so easy and simple for us. “
