A wedding ceremony is a joyous celebration of your love. There are many important decisions to consider when planning your ceremony, and choosing a wedding official is one of them. My name is Ryan, and I would like to help make your wedding exactly what you want it to be by officiating your ceremony. Being married myself, I know how important choosing the right person to perform the ceremony can be. I will work with you to guarantee that your special day is everything you want it to be!
Together, we can craft a ceremony using your words and ideas to represent your religious, spiritual, or secular beliefs. If you would rather, I can also create the ceremony for you. Rest assured, either way, I will honor ALL of your wishes because this is your day!
I am a non-denominational minister, ordained by the Universal Life Church, and I can perform legal marriage ceremonies, as well as civil unions, domestic or partnership ceremonies, and other affirmation ceremonies. ALL people deserve to be happy, and I want to help in your pursuit of happiness! I believe that all couples in love should be joined the way they best see fit, and I will work with you to guarantee that you have the ceremony of your dreams!

Ryan was a fantastic officiant. He really understood exactly what type of ceremony we were envisioning and helped it come true. He has a very friendly and warm demeanor, and was also very helpful before and after the ceremony. I would definitely recommend him! Also, his wife was our wedding coordinator, they make a great team!Sent on 12/27/2016

Ryan was an amazing officiant! He provided great guidance leading up to the wedding and even had a packet with numerous sample ceremonies and passages to give us ideas and get a feel for what type of ceremony we wanted. Ryan was very accommodating throughout the process. We planned a lot of the ceremony late, so his flexibility and calm demeanor really helped us to stay relaxed. At the ceremony, Ryan was a soothing presence and a great orator. Overall, he was great to work with and we highly recommend him!Sent on 12/21/2016
