Hi and thank you for considering Weddings By Antonia! I'm Antonia Santiago, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and I have witnessed the impressive transition of the city from the baby boomers, generation X and Y, hipsters and millennials to what has always been described as the "City That Never Sleeps." Nothing in New York is ever ordinary and your wedding shouldn't be either.
With the forever changing times, deciding to go with a marriage officiant is an excellent option for the couples who want to make a personalized statement on their special day.
Becoming a marriage officiant has been my sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of New York City. I like to look at it as “you’re at the mercy of love.” Love has no expiration date, no rules and no limits. Everything slows down when it comes to piecing together every aspect of your wedding to make it the most unforgettable moment of your lives.
Selecting the right marriage officiant is one of the most important decisions you’ll make during the wedding planning process because the way your ceremony feels will be something you and your families will remember forever.
I know you have many options when it comes to choosing an officiant so I'd like to share a little about myself and hopefully this will aid in making your decision. I officiated my first wedding at no cost, which turned out to be an incredible life-changing day. From that day forward, I knew I had found a new calling. It allowed me to play a part in a celebration of unity and love which has been my key reason for keeping my fees relatively modest. My primary principal: you cannot put a price on love.
I perform both faith and interfaith, as well as same-sex, spiritual and non-religious ceremonies. Whether a formal or informal setting, a beach, a park, at home or in front of 2 or 200 people, I look forward to being an integral part of your memorable experience.
Live, Laugh, Love & Then Get Married
