How did I get from corporate America to wedding ceremonies?
I believe that life should be about doing what you enjoy, and not just making money. After leaving the international business life behind in 2004, I "retired" to North Georgia to assist my wife Cyndi with her fledgling wedding venue Cavender Castle.
Over the next couple of years I observed other ministers and officiants as they conducted weddings. With a background in sales and public speaking, I was amazed at how boring most of the ceremonies were. And, worse than that, most officiants did nothing to personalize their ceremony for the couple they were marrying. I knew I could do better.
So I did my homework and became an ordained a non-denominational minister.
Through that process I learned not only how to make a marriage legal, but how to make the ceremony touching, memorable, and meaningful for the couple and all theirmguests. Most importantly I learned how to celebrate the relationship being honored at a wedding.
I started by doing a few small ceremonies at our Cavender Castle venue. But it became crystal clear I had finally found my passion!.
One of the skills that I am most proud of is learning how to incorporate children into my weddings in a way that makes them feel both included, and important, to both the wedding and the new family being created.
Today with almost a thousand ceremonies under my belt, I have become perhaps the busiest wedding officiants in the country. In addition to doing ceremonies at wedding venues everywhere I also conduct weddings at waterfalls, lakes, rivers, beaches, and cabins throughout the USA.
To make the planning process easy for you I have designed a special Online Ceremony Builder that provides every couple with complete control over the style, content, and wording of their ceremony. My clients love how they can add their own personal touch into their wedding and avoid any surprises on their wedding day!

Rev. Rick is absolutely the best officiant out there. Rick Durham was responsive and helpful from the beginning to the end. He answered all questions and addressed any concerns we had all the way up to our wedding day - He was so personable and friendly with our whole group and made our wedding day a very special and meaningful moment. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!Sent on 09/20/2019
