There are wedding officiants…And then there is Rick Burton (Insert mental image of super-cool fireworks)Sent on 07/05/2017
Rick's attention to detail was nothing short of perfect. Professional, polite, responsive, accommodating, charismatic, enthusiastic. I could keep offering up adjectives for Rick -- I think you get the point.
William and I planned an elopement to the Charleston area. Being from WAY out of town, we found Rick by chance via a simple internet search. From the initial email, we knew Rick was the right man for the job. He had all the answers, organized in perfect checklists. By the second phone call. We knew exactly how the ceremony would go.
We met Rick in person the week of the ceremony. He met us in a quaint little bistro in downtown Charleston. We discussed the details of the ceremony over morning coffee. He even volunteered to pick up our marriage license and my bridal bouquet from the florist! Who does that?
After coffee, Rick took us on a quick tour of downtown and of the lovely Belmond at Charleston Place Hotel (highly recommended you stay there – WOW). We were able get a full 360-degree view of the city from the rooftop pool area.
Wedding day…Perfect. We met Rick at the seaside resort and conducted the ceremony alongside the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.
So, the officiant’s job is done, right? Wrong. This is when Rick kicked it into high gear. Since it was just us, Rick stayed with us through all the post-ceremony wedding photography. Carrying my shoes and helping us in any way possible. Just above and beyond expectations.
The next day, he messaged us just to wish us well and assure us that all legal aspects had been filed and taken care of.
BOTTOM LINE: Rick Burton is top-notch. Do yourself a favor and book him as soon as possible! I wish we could get married again!

Hands Down The Greatest Officiant!!!!
Rick Burton assisted with and performed our wedding ceremony on January 26, 2019! We hands down could now have ever dreamed up a better person for the job than Mr. Burton! My husband and I chose to get married on our 10 year anniversary in Charleston, SC which is were we met and became best friends! Rick went above and beyond to make our special day the most incredible experience it could have ever possibly been. Going into the planning, I honestly had no idea what I was doing and Rick took such great care in helping us come up with all the details and in making our vows so personalized and so very special to us! We truly can not thank Rick enough for everything! We will never forget all that he did for us with such professionalism, kindness, and such attention to detail! If you are planning a wedding he truly is the best person for the job and when you choose Rick you will know you made the absolute right choice in selecting your officiant!!! Rick Burton, we thank you for the bottom of our hearts!!!Sent on 02/24/2019

I can’t say enough good things about Rick. My wife and I live in New Jersey, along with all of our friends and family, but chose Charleston as the destination for our wedding. Due to the distance and inability to plan in person, there were some obstacles. However, with Rick, we never felt this. In fact, it was as if we weren’t even having a destination wedding – that’s how responsive, available and helpful Rick was throughout the process.Sent on 11/15/2018
From our very first phone call, we knew Rick was our guy. He made us feel comfortable even though we had no idea what we were doing . Rick is very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to make the whole process easy. My wife and I were looking for a non-religious ceremony under 30 minutes and Rick helped us put together the perfect vows and readings. During the few visits we did make to Charleston before our big day, Rick always made sure to take time out of his schedule to meet with us. In addition, Rick helped with our marriage license knowing the difficulty we faced from the distance.
Rick – our wedding was perfect and a million thanks for being a big part that!
Richard Burton is in a word the wedding whisperer!
