Easy and tailored to us
After finding Rick on wedding wire, we met with him and immediately knew we needed to hire him. Not only was he incredibly personable, but he ensured us that our ceremony was going to reflect us as a couple and tailored specifically to us. We were able to read the ceremony script and add/subtract anything we wanted, and Rick was always available for insight and any help that we may need. On the day of, he went through everything perfectly. He also ensured that our marriage certificate was mailed to the county offices so we didn't have to worry about that! It was such a painless experience and u would highly recommend him to everyone!Sent on 12/07/2019

Fantastic Wedding Officiant
Rick was a wonderful officiant on our special day. He was very thorough and responsive throughout the discovery process, getting to know us as a couple and weaving in personalized anecdotes into the ceremony. He was warm, professional and clearly very much enjoys his role in joining two people together. We would highly recommend Rick!Sent on 09/30/2019

If you are looking for a wedding officiant look no further! Rick was absolutely amazing to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process and on our wedding day.Sent on 09/29/2019
From the first call we had with Rick, we could immediately tell his professionalism and dedication to what he does. His officiant business is his passion project (his real profession is a school superintendent) and he put a ton of effort into making our ceremony the best it could be.
He interviewed both my husband and I separately and got to know us and our stories so he could put together a custom ceremony that included a lot about who we are and our love for each other.
All of our guests had nothing but amazing things to say about Rick and his performance during our ceremony.
We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding officiant. Thanks so much Rick!
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!
