Wonderful officiant!

Reverend Ron was everything we wanted in an officiant. He was thoughtful, kind, had presence, spoke beautiful words and made us feel comfortable on our special day. I am so glad to have had Reverend Ron officiate our wedding. Definitely recommend!

Our wedding with Reverend Ron

Reverend Ron officiated our wedding with professionalism, poise and grace. He guided my wife a and me through the nuptials with compassion, humor and expertise. We overcame some contentious moments with a NYC street performer, and with the help of Reverend Ron, we soured above the noise and everyone maintained a calm demeanor. I have nothing but high praise for Reverend Ron and the service he provided us on that special day.

Reverend Ron Shephard

It was a pleasure meeting Ron and having him join us to officiate our wedding and begin our life together. Ron had the perfect mix of professionalism and personability; we've already recommended him to our friends who are getting married this summer and would not hesitate to hire him again!
