    First Class

    We planned a New Year's eve elopement in Palm Springs (we're from Portland, OR), and Richard stepped in as our best friend in town. He nailed our vows, guided us through the local process of getting a marriage certificate, and collaborated perfectly with our photographer Ryan Horban (another gem!). Richard's graciousness, humor, and ability to improvise all added up to an authentic moment for us, and we owe him a huge debt of gratitude.

    Richard Cadieux is simply the best choice!

    We are forever indebted to Richard and his skill set for making our wedding day so wonderful. He scripted the ceremony so perfectly in our casual setting to surprise some dear friends and family amongst us. We got our wish for close family and friends to share our venue with in a small but charming setting. Richard's light and friendly style was appreciated by all, especially us and we thank Richard again for being the person who married us. When we say he's the best, we mean it. We thank Richard with deepest sincerity from the two of us.
    Ed and Sandy
