There are wedding officiants…And then there is Rick Burton (Insert mental image of super-cool fireworks)
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!

Rick was first class from start to finish!!!
As many of you look to start planning that magical day, you should look no further than Richard Burton! I can’t say enough good things about him but he was first class personified. He’s presence is soothing and calm yet he has everything under complete control from start to finish. When things start to get a bit chaotic, he steps right in to lead the group. But the most important quality in my opinion, is Rick genuinely cares for everyone. I felt he was an extension of your family. With eyes closed, he should be at your wedding!
Thank You Rick!!!

Professional and Detail-Oriented
Rick is the consummate professional, with a very warm and unassuming personality. He is very detail-oriented and did everything he could to make our ceremony special and unique. Rick took the time to get to know us and our families, so that he could provide suggestions where we didn't have answers. Highly Recommended.
Richard Burton is in a word the wedding whisperer!
The consummate wedding officiant... With a passion for uniting couples and families through matrimony, Rick delivers very personal and thoughtful ceremonies with utmost style and grace. His attention to detail from the first phone call to the " I do's" is spot on. The best of the best!
I love working with Richard Burton. He is extremely professional, and helpful throughout the entire process. If you're looking for an Officiant in Charleston, I highly recommend Mr. Burton!!
