Richard is a total gem!
I cannot say enough good things about Richard! We planned our elopement in Palm Springs and weren't able to meet in person until the day of the ceremony. Through our phone conversations and emails, Richard already felt like a friend. He asked thoughtful questions and interpreted our conversations into a beautiful ceremony. Truly a talented officiant and a wonderful person all around.Sent on 03/17/2019

Richard is incredible!
This is the opinion of a wedding photographer, who sees hundreds of officiants/reverends a year. Richard by far blew everyone out of the water. I loved how he really got to know and understand the couple before the ceremony, and incorporate some phrases/mentions that represent them and their story.Sent on 08/05/2019
He was great to work with as a vendor as well. He was super accommodating to us photographers to make sure everything ran smoothly. We came all the way from Canada and the couple eloped in Joshua Tree. If I ever get the opportunity to photograph another elopement/wedding in America, I will not hesitate to recommend Richard a thousand times over. Thanks again Richard, you killed it!

Perfect. Humorous. Memorable.
We would highly recommend Joyful Weddings & Events. Richard was a wonderful officiant. He genuinely cared about ensuring our special day was both special and memorable, and was very efficient and helpful. Richard was fantastic with every aspect of our wedding preparation, which was very much appreciated given that we were planning an elopement wedding in California, but undertaking the planning from Australia. For anyone planning a wedding in Southern California, whether you're from the US or overseas, we thoroughly recommend Joyful Weddings & Events to help make your special day memorable.Sent on 08/04/2019
Joyful Weddings & Events's reply:It was an honor to help you with your wedding at the Mission Inn in Riverside. Having once lived in Australia, I enjoyed your delightful sense of humor.
