He is great!
He is absolutely great!Sent on 12/14/2020
He wanted to know more about us and know our personal history instead of simply pronouncing us husband and wife!
He had a great patience with my friends who were all over the place and he had all the precautions (including checking everyones temperature) to make sure mu husband and I had the best and most safe weeding.
Reverend Ron Sheppard's reply:Thanks, Barbara for those sweet words.

Reverend Ron is a wonderful officiant. We went through 2 venue changes and 3 different ceremony plans due to the pandemic and Reverend Ron stuck by us the entire time. He offered advice and called to check up on us and see how things were going. A few days before the wedding, he called to confirm and and see how we were doing. He is a kind and caring soul and my wife and I appreciated how he took the time to get to know us and our story, which he used at the ceremony. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding.Sent on 08/28/2020

Rev Ron was truly amazing and accommodating for our wedding. He was helpful in writing down the ceremony and sharing our story. He was early to the ceremony allowing us time to sign the license, he met with us before the wedding to go over exactly what we wanted, and he delivered a beautiful homily. My husband and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone to officiate their wedding.Sent on 02/17/2020
