From the very beginning, Rick was wonderful to work with. Although my now-husband and I had never met him in person before we hired him, it felt like we had known each other for years after our first phone conversation. Rick is incredibly personable and did a great job of incorporating both humor and emotion into the ceremony, sometimes at unexpected moments and always with perfect timing. We got compliments from multiple guests afterward! If you want the opportunity to create a ceremony that is uniquely yours and not the cookie-cutter “dearly beloved”, Rick is the man for you!Sent on 11/18/2019

Rick's ceremony was the best part of our wedding!
Do yourself a favor and just HIRE RICK FOR YOUR WEDDING! Rick was our officiant for our wedding in Paso Robles in October 2019 and finding him was like hitting the jackpot. Before we found Rick, I was a little worried about finding an officiant that would create a ceremony that felt like "us" and not just your run of the mill wedding ceremony. He was amazing to work with from start to finish (he sent us a ton of example ceremonies), he was helpful, professional, affordable, calming and overall just really enjoyable to work with. I can't even begin to count the number of our guests that came up to us during our reception to tell us how much they loved the ceremony and how great Rick did. Seriously, don't miss your opportunity to have Rick officiate your wedding. You will not regret it!Sent on 10/24/2019

Our Wedding Dreams Came True
Rick Comstock was the perfect addition for completing our fairy tale wedding. He was so good at getting our vision and implementing what our hopes were for our unforgettable day. He worked so well with me to refine and perfect his role and help us do the same for ours. I was impressed with his sensitivity to our specific situation bringing two families from two different religious backgrounds together seamlessly. I would highly recommend Rick and describe him as professional, sensitive and accommodating making sure to meet the needs of the Bride and Groom.Sent on 11/04/2019
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.
