Robbin was absolutely the best part of our wedding! He worked with our family- it was a second marriage for both my husband and I and we had children. He made it so special for the children! He included them in something called a ribbon ceremony where our children were each represented by a color. They loved it! There was not a dry eye at the ceremony! The vows that Robbin created for my husband and I were personal and beautiful. I could not believe he could blend making our marriage ceremony about my husband and I and our family. This man truly has a gift and I would highly recommend him!
The Rite Officiant's reply:Melissa and Patrick... thank YOU for allowing me to be a part of such a special occasion. It truly was pleasure getting to know you and your family. What a wonderful way to end the year during the holiday season! I trust you liked your holiday ornaments we worked into the flowers, too!! I wish you much happiness and love throughout the years. Warmest hugs, R

Robbin is the best!
You will not regret choosing Robbin to be apart of your special day! Wedding planning is so stressful... I can definitely say mine was. But to be honest, the only part of my planning process that wasn’t was working with Robbin. My husband and I heard about Robbin through our venue and I randomly gave him a call one day. Just from speaking with him on the phone, I knew he was the one I wanted to officiate my wedding. Robbin is very flexible and accommodating when it comes to scheduling. We met with him after work hours on a weekday which worked for us and I’m sure most working couples. After only one meeting, he put together the most beautiful ceremony. It was like he had known us for a long time and our guests felt that way as well. All we asked for was a simple ceremony that was personal and reflected us.. and Robbin did just that! Our guests were smiling, laughing and crying (in a good way) throughout the ceremony all thanks to Robbin! Please check one item off your to do list today and call The Rite Officiant! You will not regret it!Sent on 01/18/2020
Side note: He owns his own flower shop and did my bouquets and boutonnières. Absolutely beautiful and affordable pricing. Thank you again Robbin for everything!
