Thank you Rick!!
Rick was an absolute pleasure to work with. Even though we planned it early, he kept in close contact and was easily reachable. Rick gave us wonderful resources to use for our ceremony, and when we couldn't quite come up with a perfect plan and placed it in his hands, he created a beautiful and thoughtful work of art for us. He was knowledgeable from his years of experience working with all kinds of couples! We felt instantly at ease from the first phone call and knew we would be using him immediately. He has a gentle nature to him and knows how to support and guide his intended couple. The magical day finally came and Rick had everything ready for us, even our vows printed which was so relieving. He was steady, and focused, and kept us relaxed. Sometimes you are just so focused on your own emotions you need a capable leader to help you with each part of the ceremony- That is what Rick is and was to us. So so friendly and kind and personable. Rick, you made a once-in-a-lifetime moment 100 times more wonderful. We could never thank you enough for our wonderful ceremony and your help. We will never forget your part on our Wedding Day. Thank you thank youSent on 09/25/2020

Everything we wanted and more
My husban and I were able to have Rick as our officiant and we loved our ceremony. Rick was always so informative and made the whole process so enjoyable. It was personalized to us and all though we had a very small wedding, everyone felt the love and enjoyed the ceremony. Thank you so much Rick!Sent on 02/24/2021

The absolute best man for the job!
Rick was recommended to us by our venue coordinator and we could not be more grateful that he was. Rick helped make our wedding ceremony more perfect than we could have ever imagined. He was so easy to work with and you could tell right away that he is confident with his work. He helped us plan our ceremony and knew just what we were looking for. When I say it was perfect, I mean it. Planning a wedding during a pandemic from the other side of the country seemed crazy, but he was so helpful through it all. Even our families and friends commented on how great he was and how amazing our ceremony was.
Don't overlook this guy. He is the best there is!Sent on 06/23/2021
Two words I have for Rick. Hire him .. and after you do relax, knowing that your ceremony will be a beautiful reflection of your personality and story. He has always impressed me with his class and kindness. As a planner I know that working with Rick means I can be confident that the ceremony will go smoothly. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for that perfect piece to their wedding.
