**** "Dear Pastor: Thank you so much for being present on our special day. The ceremony was perfect and we enjoyed every minute of it. We are eternally grateful to have met you and we will always remember the advice you gave us during our premarital counseling".
--- With love Vanessa and Brett
**** "My impression of Pastor Cristoforo Padula officiating for a wedding August the eighteenth, held in Hagerstown, Maryland."
"I was impressed and delighted of the time, patience, direction, and encouragement given the entire wedding party and ceremony; always with a smile and comforting word."
"This pastor brought his own excellent sound equipment which enhanced his spiritual message. Pastor Padula was dressed impeccably in his clerical robe of office, with color coordinated stole, which did not conflict with the brides gown or her bridal party." --- Carolyn Ross
**** "We were married by Pastor Cristoforo Padula. While the beauty and excitement of our wedding day was wonderful, it was the ceremony that truly expressed our dedicated love for one another. Pastor Padula's unique gift for expressing love through words made our ceremony personal. He was able to display the passion and sincerity with which we love each other to our friends and family. Pastor Padula took the time to meet with us on several occasions to find out who we were as a couple and even shared some of his life experiences with us. For all potential newlyweds looking for a pastor, we recommend Pastor Padula to the highest."
--- Mr. and Mrs. McDaniels
**** "He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable with the whole wedding ceremony and he had no problems or judgments when we asked if it was possible to eliminate the word God from the ceremony."
"His words were very touching. He definitely accepted the ceremony the way WE wanted it. There were a few unexpected things Cristoforo added. He's bilingual, and added words in Italian, which made my family very happy. In addition to that, he provided us with a custom wedding certificate."
"He also came with his own equipment (mic/speaker). Prior to the wedding he provided a fantastic counseling session for us. We aren't religious people, so we wanted our wedding to be free of any religious references. Cristoforo did the ceremony to include what we wanted, but in a way that included everyone."
"A wedding guest commented: It was the best wedding I've ever been to... from the ceremony to the food, everything."
