Congratulations on your wedding plans! I’m excited for you, and I hope if you're planning a Tri-State (NY-NJ-PA) Bilingual / English / Spanish wedding, that I can be a part of your very special day.
Do you want to get married without all the hoopla quick and easy? I can do that as well...
I am very professional. I will do a short version or long version ceremony; it's all up to you, I tailor the ceremony to your needs!
Here is a little about me: I'm an ordained minister since 2011. (think about your favorite childhood Pastor, Priest or Rabbi) That means, that among other things, I believe that even if your ceremony is not of a religious nature, that when you unite your life to another person's in marriage - it's a holy and revered moment.
There are very few things you will ever do in your lives that will impact you in this way. The purposes of where heaven and earth converge is when a man and woman get married - and approaching it in this way affects and impacts the ceremony in meaningful way. Your favorite Pastor, Priest or Rabbi and I both love to reach out to people at important moments in their lives and give God an opening to do something great. We both want to be of real help. We both want to allow God to work in and through us for the betterment of mankind.
A marriage is not a old fashioned ritual or a just a legal formality - it is so much more than that, and I promise you I will be keeping that in mind on the day that I solemnize your marriage.
I officiate English, Spanish and or Bilingual Non-Denominational and Christian, Catholic, Protestant, Baptist and Anglican ceremonies in New York State (incl. All five (5) Boroughs of New York City), New Jersey and Pennsylvania I would be honored to be part of your special day!
All the best,
Rev. Richard Rodriguez

Reverend Richard was spectacular to work with. Our wedding reception in Chicago was postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19, and my now husband and I wanted to keep our original date and still get married but in NY. We received Rev. Richard's information from another Rev. in Chicago and within a few days we had an elopement ceremony planned in New York this July all thanks to Rev. Richard. He was prompt and professional with responses, and incredibly flexible when it came to planning the ceremony. We asked him the night before if we could move our ceremony from 4 to 7pm so we could look out at the sunset and he quickly agreed. If you are looking for a beautiful and easy experience, look no further. Thank you for making our elopement ceremony so simple and easy!Sent on 08/03/2020

A simple and perfect virtual wedding.
Rev. Richard performed a ceremony for my cousin years ago and I remembered it being just as she hoped for. I reached out to Rev. Rich during the COVID-19 pandemic to do the same for my husband and I. He was very flexible, from working with us on short notice to even changing the time the day prior so we could avoid rain during our outdoor ceremony. Rev. Richard radiated positive energy.Sent on 06/29/2020
We set up a tripod, joined Rev. Rich via Zoom, exchanged beautiful vows and were able to sign and pay electronically with ease. It was a beautiful and perfect day.
Tri-State Weddings's reply:Thank you so much for the wonderful words and it was truly a pleasure serving you both during this difficult time! I wish you nothing but the best in your future together!

An absolute pleasure to work with
Reverend Rodriguez was recommended to us by one of his business associates, and we couldn't be more grateful for him! My husband and I had been through a lot trying to reconfigure our marriage plans during COVID-19, and he made the whole process easier and much less stressful! We found him to be kind, reassuring, and professional. His Zoom ceremony was exactly what we asked for (i.e., nonreligious, very simple). I don't want to spoil it for other couples, but he provided a wonderful surprise the next day when everything was finished. Overall Reverend Rodriguez turned what could have been a bittersweet ceremony into a sweet memory that we will always cherish. I would highly recommended his services, pandemic or not!Sent on 07/27/2020
