Robbin is amazing!
I found Robbin through WeddingWire reviews, so I figured I'd pay it forward. He was amazing. He did research on us as a couple even before our first meeting, and our first meeting felt like making a new friend. We talked and laughed and he asked us questions and we all told stories. If you just want to hurry up and get it over with, Robbin is not the one for you. But if you want to work with someone who makes you feel like a friend instead of a business transaction, he's your guy! Robbin is so much fun, full of energy, humor, and warmth. It was very easy and a true joy to work with him. He wrote a beautiful ceremony for us with our input, our backgrounds and history together as a couple. I loved the amount of detail he put into everything, even the meaning behind the colors of our handfasting ribbons! That evening, I received numerous compliments from guests about how much they loved our ceremony. I am so glad the officiants that our venue recommended were already booked — I feel like we got something truly unique in our experience with Robbin, and I highly recommend him!Sent on 10/11/2019
The Rite Officiant's reply:Molly!!! Thank you so very much for that awesome review!!! I always feel that things happen for a reason, and I believe that it was meant for you and Greg to approach me. It was a wonderful ceremony but it was even more wonderful getting to meet you both and hear your story. Thank you so very much for giving me the honor or being the guy to help you "tie the knot".

The Rite Officiant was the Right Choice!
Robbin officiated our wedding ceremony on October 4th, 2019. We were very indecisive about what we wanted included in our ceremony, and Robbin helped us every step away. With very little direction given, Robbin was able to compose the most perfect ceremony incorporating the perfect amount of religion, humor, and our own personalities. We met with Robbin on two separate occasions- the first being a "get to know you" meeting, and the second being a final review of the ceremony. Robbin was personable and responsive to all of our requests, questions, and changes. The day of, Robbin was on time, professional, and a great addition to our wedding. Could not recommend his services any higher!Sent on 10/08/2019

Robbin was very very helpful, my husband and I were not very knowledgeable on weddings and he was a huge help. He wrote a beautiful personalized ceremony and helped us add really emotional touches. He was charismatic and made the ceremony interesting. He was always easy to get a hold of during planning and overall made the whole experience a breeze.Sent on 08/12/2019
