    Great experience!

    It was our best decision to ask Rick to officiate our small ceremony. He made it feel very special! As a bonus he sent us a video of the ceremony which none of our family took 😂we highly recommend Rick!

    Great Experience! Accommodating and Genuine.

    Me and my husband were looking to have an elopement ceremony. I found Rick via Wedding Wire and sent him a request. He called me within 30 minutes and confirmed our date. Rick was so accommodating considering our date was the day before Thanksgiving and with less than a 30 day notice. He sent us an email asking to about how we met, shared experiences, etc. He incorporated that into our wedding vows in a way that felt like a recap of mine and my husbands relationship. He married us under a Pear tree where he married his wife over 25 years ago. It was very sweet. Overall, it was very a great experience and I am very happy we had Rick to ordain our wedding.
