Being a military bride means being ready for the unexpected. My now Husband and I decided to get married 4 WEEKS before our actual Wedding Day!! It was up to me to plan an indoor ceremony at a nice venue with 40 guests, a GREAT officiant, and find a wedding dress in 28 days!! Oh and not to mention, it all had to be under our budget of $500!!!! YIKES !! I decided to call Mr.Jensen to see what all the chitchat about him was, and the second he picked up the phone, I knew why his clients loved him so much! He was so joyful,helpful, caring,funny, understanding and WILLING to take time out of his day to meet us at the courthouse to help us with the Marriage License process, but most importantly take the time out of his CHRISTMAS EVE to Marry us! :D I must have called about 4 different times and he always answered right away! I love that he is available 24/7 because with my husband in the military and in different time zones I couldn't imagine having the stress of not having both of them talk because of the time difference! The Vows he preformed were so touching, and beautiful! That's not even the best part of it all. With my family being Mexican and his family being American we thought we had to choose what language we wanted our ceremony to be in but not with Mr.Jensen! He preformed a ceremony in BOTH English AND Spanish :D and all of this for an affordable price! Theres no officiant in San Antonio better than him ! It Shouldn't even be an option for you(: Mr.Jensen I cant thank you enough for all of your help and support in our Marriage. Beren and I will always be grateful to have found an officiant like you who made our wedding day that much better! Than you so much and God Bless!(: -Beren and Griselda Mann

Mr. Jensen was very helpful through the entire process. Me and my wife are both active military( Air force, Army) I was coming down to visit for memorial day weekend when we decided to plan our wedding for that Saturday. it was an extreme short notice and I didn't know how it was going to be pulled off but it was. From the first phone call me and my wife made, he explained how everything was going to work and we knew that we were going to do the wedding through him. My biggest problem for us was actually getting a marriage license because both parties need to be present at the courthouse to receive a license. she was in school at the time and I live out of state so it was impossible to both be present. Luckily this wasn't Mr. Jensen's first rodeo in this situation so he met up with my wife at the court house to fill out all the paper work and a ABSENTEE AFFIDAVIT with all her information, and turned in all the paperwork for us. The day before the wedding when I arrived in Texas, I met Mr. Jensen at the courthouse and signed my portion of the papers and turned in the ABSENTEE AFFIDAVIT that she filled out and that was it, it was all taken care of. The following day we had our wedding, right on the river walk. My wife and I really liked the ceremony and the promises he had us make to each other, it is definitely something we will remember for the rest of our lives. If you are looking for something easy and really affordable I extremely recommend going through Mr. Jensen. He is very professional and has a positive attitude. He also does military discount.
To whoever you are: I am surprised that you even chose to write about such petty topics when reviewing Mr. Jensen's service, especially when you had no intention of ever using it, and I cannot help but feel that you, perhaps, are the one who is "weird and tactless". First of all, who, other than yourself obviously, has the nerve to ask such personal questions? No offense, but from what you have written, you sound like some sort of bigot, or racist, and an uneducated instigator. Hopefully, you are not, but that is how you come off to be. I think that in these tough economic times, all people are interested in is quality and a reasonable price, not how the marriage officiant will look in wedding pictures. Unfortunately, my husband and my work schedules have us constantly on the go, so choosing to get married without a rehearsal was a relief. Moreover, what is there to rehearse for anyway? Unless you have no clue where you are going to stand or what you're going to answer for your vows (I do, or I don't), then I suppose you need one, but otherwise, they are pointless and stressful. Mr. Jensen never gave my husband and me reason to believe that he is a "sales shark"; rather, he is just a man who wants to make a living, but he also wants his clients to be happy at the same time, which is why he probably wished you "good luck". Oh, and if he happens to not mention any aspect of having even a prayer involved in the marriage ceremony itself, that probably means that he does civil ceremonies. Just a thought.
