I work with the couple to personalize their ceremonies to make it just what they want it to be. Please contact me if you would like to discuss the possibility of my helping you have a ceremony to remember.

    Ralph made our ceremony the BEST

    Our wedding ceremony was the favorite part of our day for many reasons, and Ralph was one of those reasons! We planned our Franklin, TN wedding from Maine (where we live) and Ralph made our ceremony planning super smooth. He sent over a Word document template of a ceremony script and we were able to easily go in and modify it to make it our own and special to us. A lot of the suggestions that Ralph made to be included in our ceremony we went with and we are SO happy that we did! During our actual ceremony, Ralph was so personable and he made it seem as though we had known him for years! We are so thankful that Ralph was the one to marry us and I will never forget how special he made it for us - thank you, Ralph!!

    Amazing officiant!

    Ralph was an amazing officiant! Nashville was not mine or my husband鈥檚 hometown so we were worried about finding a minister who would marry us with a personal, faith-filled touch. Our wedding planner Sweetwater Events connected us with Ralph and after meeting with him we immediately felt like we were in good hands. He tailored the ceremony to what we were looking for, kept it professional yet some light humor mixed in, it was a perfect ceremony. Ralph also provides an online pre-marital course which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was self-paced and filled with great discussion questions and notes.

    Outstanding job!

    Ralph was an absolute pleasure to work with! We were worried about finding a minister that made us feel comfortable, but he was the perfect addition to our ceremony. He met with us via phone call to go through all the details, and even included an online premarital counseling course, which we used to strengthen our relationship in months leading up to our day, as well as get a great discount on our marriage license! He also sent us a ceremony planning guide that was instrumental in helping us craft the perfect ceremony. His delivery of it combined all of the seriousness, humor, and love we hoped for and we had numerous compliments on how much our guests enjoyed it! He also filed our license for us while we were away on our honeymoon! Ralph鈥檚 communication and professionalism can not be beat, and we are grateful to have had him as part of our team that day. If you鈥檙e stuck on who to go with for your wedding, you can trust that Ralph will do an outstanding job!

    Nashville Wedding Minister's reply:
