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

Thank you, Rick!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Rick. During our initial meeting, he had a professional, easy-going demeanor that we were instantly drawn to. He made the entire process so simple, and yet completely customized for our big day. Our guests raved about him after the ceremony and couldn't believe we'd only known him for a few months. Absolutely perfect. Thank you, Rick!Sent on 08/04/2019

Excellent Officiant!!!!!! We couldn't be happier!!!!!!
Rick was an amazing officiant. Our original officiant canceled a couple of months before the wedding and I was in a panic. I searched wedding wire and listened to many officiants and LOVED Rick's weddings, his voice, his words, and how professional he was. I set up and phone meeting and instantly knew I wanted Rick to officiate my wedding. Before the wedding I had several phone meetings with Rick where he customized my wedding and made it truly special. He got to know me and my fiance before the wedding and added in special detail. I loved everything about my wedding and I LOVED having Rick as our officiant. My officant canceling was the best thing to happen to us because having Rick was truly an honor. I can't say enough positive things about him! All my friends and family would agree, it was truly a special day and ceremony performed by Rick. I couldn't be happier!Sent on 07/07/2019
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!
