My husband and I just got married on 10/8/17 with Rabbi Richard! He was amazing through out the entire process and really got to know us as a couple. He added humor and fun to our ceremony and he made us both feel extremely comfortable. We were lucky enough to have him at our reception as well!! We highly recommend Rabbi Richard for anyone!Sent on 10/13/2017

Ronald & Sherri (Raftery) Patton Wedding
We highly recommend Rabbi Rick Winer. He was able to help capture the simple ceremony that we wanted. He married us on the former location of Nazareth in the little chapel. It was a very romantic moment. We are very grateful and thankful for the effort and words he spoke. Thank you! Ronnie & Sherri (Raftery) Patton.Sent on 10/29/2020

He's the best.
We worked with Rabbi Winer during our wedding which, due to COVID, went from a 150-person affair to a small event by the ocean with just our immediate families. He was so patient, accommodating, and so so kind. The ceremony was beautiful and meaningful, and everyone had a great time. He's also the perfect mix of hilarious and sentimental. We couldn't have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding for us!
