Hola Allen,

Just wanted to say thank you again for all your

help, patience and kindness in making our wedding

day so special.

- Christina and Rob

We were having difficulty finding someone to perform our ceremony in English and Spanish. We met with Allen and his friend in San Jose to put together a plan. The ceremony came off without a hitch and the Spanish translation was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our special day.​
