    Reverend Colonna was everything we could have asked for in a wedding Officiant and more. He put a lot of effort into planning for our ceremony and made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it. He is extremely professional and is a excellent at transforming your ideas into realities. We can honestly say he made our day extra special and we are so happy to have him included in the day's memories. We strongly recommend him-- you will not be disappointed!

    Everything I Hoped it Would Be!

    Richard Colonna did a wonderful job in making the wedding the relaxed, casual affair we wanted it to be. He was personable, professional and made everyone feel at ease. I'm so glad our friends recommended him.

    Best Officiant we could have asked for!

    We had Richard officiate our wedding and it was a wonderful decision. The process of producing our ceremony was easy and his input helped us make it perfect. Our friends and family were so impressed with him as we were. He also incorporated a Greek crowning along with bible readings in the best way. We can not recommend him enough to officiate your special day!
