Simply the BEST!
We could not have made a better choice of officiant for our wedding. As I type this review and reflect on the beauty of our ceremony and Robbin's words, I tear up all over again. Robbin managed to capture our love story in a way that was honest, heart-warming, challenging and celebratory all at once. Robbin reminded us of how far we had come as a couple, the road of joy and love that lie before us, and the legacy our love promises to leave as the years go by. If Robbin can capture the beauty of a complicated love story such as ours, trust us, he will bring the same level of care, attention to detail and honor to your nuptials. Thank you Robbin for everything you did to make our wedding ceremony one to remember for our guests, and for us. You are simply the best!Sent on 07/29/2020

Best decision we made!!!
Choosing Robbin what is the best decision that we made! He was extremely professional and experienced in his work. He took the time to go through every detail, from wedding vows to even ceremony tips and insights. He was willing to pass on his wisdom and expertise to us and made sure our day was flawless. We had a small wedding, with no rehearsal yet with his guidance, it was beautiful and perfect in every way. He took control of the ceremony and made sure everyone was on the same page. He kept reminding us it was our day and we deserved to be happy, no matter what others thought. He also did our boutonnieres and floral arrangements for the cake. Both turned out absolutely beautiful!
We are truly happy we decided to go with Robbin! We now know we did not hire just a professional and experienced officiant but we walked away with a friend that truly cared. If you were looking for an officiant there’s no reason to look any further, you found the right person to marry you!Sent on 02/20/2020
The Rite Officiant's reply:CHAD!!! Thank you so much for your very kind review!! I am so happy to have been a part of your special day!!! Yes, sometimes situations require more than just an officiant to say the words. You guys deserve every positive, supportive and loving gesture given. I was so touched that you asked me to be your officiant. Especially considering your situation. Wishing you MANY MANY years of happiness!!

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
