My husband and I were introduced to Rick Grove through a family friend. We first met with Rick at a local restaurant, and then again at the rehearsal the day before our wedding. Most contact was done via phone and email and Rick was always prompt in his responses. In the months leading up to the wedding, Rick sent several sample ceremonies for us to read through, and allowed us to edit and add our own personal touch to the ceremony of our choosing. On our big day, Rick showed up early, and did a wonderful job officiating the ceremony. I only have great things to say about Rick Grove and the memories from my wedding day; he did a wonderful job, was a great speaker, and dressed professionally for the occasion.Sent on 11/24/2015

Rick was awesome! I really enjoyed talking with him when we were preparing our ceremony. He patiently answered all my questions and allowed me to make as many changes as I wanted.

Wonderful and Thoughtful Wedding Officiant
I found Rick through Wedding Wire and I was very glad I did. My husband, Tommy, and I are from Vancouver, Canada but our wedding was in Palm Springs. Even though we were only able to chat to Rick via phone leading up to the wedding, he immediately connected through his comfortable style and personality. We loved how he tailored the ceremony and made it feel very much like us. So many guests complimented the ceremony and asked how we were able to find him.Sent on 11/26/2018
Very very pleased with Rick service and would highly recommend him to anyone!
Rick is awesome, its always a pleasure working alongside him for Ceremonies for our Injoy & Illeet Entertainment events. 5 stars all around from us!
I had the pleasure of working with Rick at the San Diego Botanical Gardens. Rick was an outstanding officiant! He arrived early for his sound check and was very easy to work with. He was very familiar with microphones and his volume and cadence were perfect during the ceremony. Rick was well prepared and did a fantastic job with the ceremony. Everyone in attendance was impressed and pleased with Rick and I would highly recommend him to any couple looking for an officiant. He is awesome!
