Best decision we made!

It's been 3 weeks since we got married and I'm still getting so many compliments about Robbin! He was unbelievable. The number one thing I was looking for in an officiant was someone that could make it seem like they had known us for years. Someone that would take in all of the personal details about us and tell a story. He had people laughing, smiling, and crying throughout our ceremony - all for the right reasons!

We also presented an odd request - to do a tequila shot during the ceremony! This is something that had a story behind it was very special to us. He absolutely nailed it and worked it into his speech so flawlessly so that it made it seem normal.

We also had a unexpected event happen during our ceremony that he handled very well. He was professional and compassionate, he got so many compliments on how we acknowledged the incident, then proceeded without missing a beat. He was truly the prefect person for the job and I would recommend him every single time.

Amazing officiant

Robbin performed a small service for us recently and he did an amazing job. All of our family members commented after the wedding about how great he was and how natural and warm the service felt despite being short. Before the wedding itself Robbin was quick to respond to questions and updates, and the run through on Zoom made us feel comfortable and prepared for the wedding. He has my highest recommendations for anyone looking for an officiant

Robbin is the best!

All I can say is: WOW. Robbin truly did such a wonderful job officiating our ceremony. So many of our guests told my now husband and I how much they loved our officiant, they loved everything he said, they thought the “service” was beautifully worded and so special. Multiple people asked how long I have known him, they all thought Robbin knew my husband and I for years he just captured us so well in the ceremony. We had only met/spoke with Robbin 2 times to go over the ceremony. He also came to rehearsal and that was super great since we needed the guidance of how everything was going to go. I highly recommend Robbin if you need an officiant.
