Nothing Short of Outstanding
There are not enough positive things to say about Richard Colonna. From the organization throughout the months leading up to the wedding, all the way through the professionalism of the actual wedding day, and even beyond, he was nothing short of outstanding. He makes you feel comfortable and calm throughout the entire process while ensuring that your ceremony will be EXACTLY the dream you are hoping it turns out to be. He even made light of a faulty microphone at our wedding and the ceremony did not even skip a beat. The care that he shows for his married couples, partnered with his ability to add a touch of humor into such an important day are just SOME of his qualities he will bring to your wedding day and the days leading up to it. Guests are still complimenting me to this day about how wonderful our officiant was and have even asked me for his information. I would recommend him to anybody in a heartbeat! Thank you for making our day as perfect as we imagined it would be! - Jess & JustinSent on 05/17/2019

Heartfelt and Genuine. AMAZING!
My husband and I knew we wanted Richard to officiate our wedding the moment we met him. He is extremely professional and great at what he does, while also being easy-going and personable making the entire wedding process fun! He made our wedding ceremony stress-free by walking us step-by-step through everything and even helping with retrieval of our wedding certificate after everything had ended. He gave us so many opportunities to personalize our ceremony and bring our wedding vision to life. The night of our wedding we received countless comments from guests saying how heartfelt and genuine Richard's words were. He helped make the most important night our life truly magical and I would recommend him to any couple in a heartbeat.Sent on 04/29/2019
