It's hard to believe that Rich hadn't known my husband and I for our entire lives. The ceremony he wrote for us made everyone attending our wedding laugh and cry and everyone mentioned to us afterwards how beautiful our ceremony was.

Beyond that, Rich made my husband and I feel so at ease throughout the ceremony and before the wedding. He made it so we really didn't need to think about anything, we were able to leave everything in his hands and let him guide us through our ceremony. He thought of EVERYTHING - how to get the best photos during the ceremony, how to stay in the moment and most importantly, he reminded us that this should be fun!

He also took care of our confidential marriage license, something my husband and I hadn't really thought about but was super convenient and seems much safer.

Bottom line, we highly recommend hiring Rich to anyone looking to have a meaningful, magical wedding ceremony with someone who will make you feel at ease on your big day!

We were absolutely thrilled with the wedding service that Rich Tobin conducted for us. Having the right officiant is so important for getting the tone and meaning that you want for the most important part of the day - the wedding service. From the initial phone call right through to the actual wedding, Rich was wonderful to work with. His manner is warm, gentle but also reassuring and wonderfully calming (really important on the day). He asked us lots of questions and was genuinely interested in us and our story do reflecting that in the wedding. The service and vows he drafted were just wonderful, such a good fit for us, but he also immediately incorporated our suggestions and changes. He did all the administrative legwork for us. He was timely and gave us a couple of dress options for us to choose from. At the service his voice was lovely to listen to. He really added a special quality to this most important moment. We had many positive comments from guests commenting on how lovely the vows and service were and how wonderful the officiant was - many asked where we had found one so good. Our wedding planner had commented that Rich was the officiant she would personally choose and we absolutely agreed. He was wonderful and we completely recommend him.
