Aris Centeno : the best solemnizing officer ever!

**** My apologies, I wasn't able to attend to all your emails. Instead, I'm posting Aris Centeno's number so that it's readily available for all of you. My only request is for you guys to also share your SO experiences below. :) happy preps! - chi

Name : Aris Centeno - 09194026369

Registry Number : 2011-25Y43NTVB2-2013
Fee : P4,800

Why is Aris Centeno the best solemnizing officer in our book?

Because he is easy to talk to, very nice and above all, he knows how to run a wedding ceremony effectively.

Though I talked to him over the phone a couple of times and texted him quite frequently, we only met with him a few weeks before the wedding.

The initial meeting was great and we had a blast!

It was great talking to him. He offered a lot of insights and advise one can only expect from someone who's been around longer.

We talked about family life, about business, about opportunities, about the economy, about character and yes we also talked about the ceremony. tee hee!

A very sweet man, when we asked about the payment, he said to just pay it after the event, that way we can still use the money for other expenses. He even bought croissants for our baon" (packed food) before we left because the travel home was long.

Moving on to the wedding..

He made it more special and meaningful to us and to the guests. We can't help but laugh and we can't help but cry. And the best part is knowing that the guests are really there, not just physically, but emotionally and mentally to be a witness to our special day.

We started off with the traditional vows from Sir Aris that we had to repeat. Following it was our own personal vows which really had us crying.




The exchange of rings was a funny moment because Eric had inserted the ring all the way through before Sir Aris said so. We didn't know that it should be done slowly so he had to take it back out then put it back again.



A hands down "hagulgol" (very loud weeping) moment was when Sir Aris asked us to hug our parents. It was totally beyond words.







I wish I have more photos of Eric for this since it's a very touching moment. These are the only ones I currently have.

After that, the parents were asked to give us their advise. It's worth to note that sir Aris was great in giving Ad libs. When he called my mom who doesn't want to talk, he segued to my mom being touched beyond measure etc etc.. Very smooth..






After the parents, it was our godparents' turn.


Most of our Ninongs and Ninangs took center stage to offer their words of wisdom. However, the best one was by my Ninang Baby. It was a grand speech alright that she got a very loud applause afterwards. I couldn't agree more.

I couldn't remember the exact words, but it was something in the line of.. "We're not here to just eat the food that the couple prepared. We're not here to dress up. We're not here to complain about the heat. We're not here to give our opinions. We are here so that we can be a witness to this couple's union and give them guidance, advise and assistance in the future if need be."

Hell yeah! I would have given her a fist pump but it wouldn't look dignified. I settled for an applause of my own.

Ninang Baby giving her thought-provoking speech

Sir Aris also gave a short talk about marriage and love and commitment and all that stuff which was very inspiring.


Their advise and anecdotes were really a wonderful part of the ceremony. The wedding in itself was almost perfect all because we chose the perfect person to officiate.

It was a constant switch between laughing and crying and it's so funny to do it at the same time. What's great is to see the guests also doing the same. :D priceless!

Hi!

i just want to confirm also if you have an idea, regarding SO,
based on SOIS census listing, they have place of asssignment.
are SO allowed to perform rites outside the city of their assignment?
or does it apply to atleast maybe either the groom/bride is a resident of the place of assignment?

thanks! HNY :)

Hi,

i am one of those who ask for his number here.
and i am so disappointed that the conversation turned out not so good when we tried to reach Mr. Centeno today, just a few minutes ago.

after a brief introductory, and q&a (over the phone, with Mr. Aris already sounding intimidating from the start), my fiance also asked regarding possible issues about the sect that he belongs, (since we are both catholic) we wanted to confirm also concerning validity of papers. sabi kung may mga ganyan kayong pag-aalinlangan sa church na lang kayo.

tapos sabi ni fiance, "sir nagtatanong lang naman po ako para maging sure kasi iniisip namin yung validity ng wedding"
sabi nya para daw sa kanya hanggang naniniwala eh ok daw yun at lahat naman daw ng papers valid at legal.
tapos sabi pa nya, "madali akong kausap, kung may tanong ka pa tawag ka next time pero sinasuggest ko sa church na kayo pumunta"
madami daw sya kausap kaya tumawag na lang next time.


what an attitude, which is quite contrary to the description here (with all due respect to your blog). i hope this be posted, though i do not intend to ruin one's reputation, i am sharing this for you and others info and insight as well.
we were really looking forward to finding an SO,and thought lucky to finally stumbled on your blog, unfortunately our first contact turned out not good.

thanks,
G.

chi said...

Hi there! Happy New Year to you too!

I can't answer for the other SOs but I know that Sir Aris' is based in Caloocan but was able to perform ceremonies in other parts of the country such as Tagaytay.

Hope this helps.. :D

chi said...

Hi there!

I'm sorry to hear that your initial contact with Sir Aris didn't turn out well. In my experience with him (since I was the one who initially contacted him over the phone) he was very direct to the point. However, he was very helpful in addressing my questions and our meet up really went well.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I hope that you find the right SO for your wedding. =D
