Richard J. Colonna Ministries is based in Garwood, NJ. I am a certified Minister and I am able to perform the following services:
My gift to humanity is to comfort those who need comforting, to unite people who believe in the power of love and to welcome the newly born into this world of opportunity.
A very special person in my life told me that as long as we have laughter, we have love. Therefore my goal is to bring peace, joy, comfort and most of all laughter to anyone I come in contact with.
As a leading provider of Ministry Services I take pride in meeting your needs and the needs of your family and friends.
I am an licensed Ordained, Interfaith, Non-Denominational Minister who goes beyond traditional limits to help you create the most unique, customized, loving, and personalized service you have ever wanted or dreamed of.
Your wedding ceremony, civil union or commitment exchange, is the cornerstone of your marriage, and it should reflect who you are, your unique relationship, and include those you love.
Whether your guest list is 2 or 200, your ceremony should be as unique as your relationship, and your Officiant should be fun and flexible.
If your service involves a baptism or a blessing of a renewed life, I commit to making it a memorable event. If you've experienced the loss of a friend or loved one, allow me to bring comfort to your heavy heart and help you celebrate their life. Whatever the need is, please honor me with the opportunity to make it a special experience.

Richard made our wedding ceremony the dream we always imagined it would be. He was very flexible with the components of the ceremony, he knew what to do to make everything go smoothly , and the words he spoke so eloquently during the ceremony were beautiful. He added a touch of humor which made everyone feel comfortable and laugh a bit, and was very heartfelt and genuine at the parts of the ceremony which reflected their meaning and importance. Thank you for being a part of our special day, and truly, making our dream wedding ceremony come true!

Richard was AMAZING!
With all the worries in planning a perfect wedding, it was so comforting having Richard handling the ceremony. He made the ceremony as perfect as it could be. He did exactly what we needed him to do. He orchestrated the ceremony with in such a professional way, that there was nothing to worry about. He was charming and made all involved feel comfortable as if he knew them for 20 years. He had our guests engaged and made them laugh as well. His personality is just the right one you need to ensure your ceremony is not boring too long or too stodgy. I would highly recommend him, if you want your ceremony to be as memorable as the party. Thank You Richard, you will always be a friend to us!
