I want to start out by saying Bishop Richard is a true professional with a great personality. When we had our first meeting with him, he gathered all the necessary information about us as a couple, our families, the wedding, and any other related information necessary to perform the ceremony. He really got a great understanding of us, our family and what we wanted. He reviewed everything in great detail about the ceremony, his processes and what to expect in the coming months and on the big day. He gave us fantastic advice on what to do in advance and how to prepare so that our big day wasn't so stressful. We are very honored that Bishop Richard officiated our wedding and want to thank him again for everything he did to ensure our wedding ceremony went so smooth.
Bishop Richard provided a beautiful ceremony for our wedding and we couldn't be more pleased. He was quick to respond to any questions we had and gave us peace of mind knowing our ceremony was in good hands. We would highly recommend Father Richard to anyone looking for a Catholic ceremony outside of a church setting.
Bishop Richard was amazing as our wedding officiant! He spent so much time and energy making sure our wedding was perfect, and preparing us for a strong marriage! He helped us navigate difficult family issues and personalized our beautiful ceremony! He even designed ceremony programs for us! My husband and I would absolutely recommend him to any couple needing a Catholic wedding officiant, the ceremony was religious, beautiful, and captured the essence of our relationship. Thank you so much for all you do!!
We met Bishop Richard as a recommendation. the moment we met him we knew we wanted a catholic ceremony and someoneek be as down to earth as Bishop Richard is. He was always helpful and gave us great advice when we needed some guidance. He made the entire process smooth and easy.
We found Bishop Richard on Wedding Wire about 18 months before the big day. He was so wonderful to work with. He was with us for the entire process, emailing us and asking how things were going in life and with wedding planning. His attention to details were impeccable! About a week or two before the wedding, he went through every aspect of the day and helped us make a list of things to not forget. We both very much enjoyed working with Bishop Richard and would highly recommend to anyone seeking a Catholic Ceremony.
Monsignor Richard was a true professional throughout the whole process and was so easy to work with. He was very organized, accommodating, attentive and had great suggestions! He does a great job of guiding you through the process so that everything runs smoothly on your big day! He did a beautiful presentation and conductance of our wedding ceremony! We will definitely recommend his services to our family and friends. We are so happy that Msgr. Richard was a part of our big day!
Father Richard was wonderful to work with. He answered many questions, reviewed our draft program and was very thorough with two nervous people for the cerrmomy.
Father Richard was extremely helpful in keeping our day less stressful and coordinated beautifully. We were given multiple timelines, able to personalize our ceremony within the limits of the church and remained worry free on the day of the ceremony because of the time and attention to detail Father Richard showed in our prior meetings. I highly recommend Father Richard if you are hoping to have a catholic ceremony outside of a church! Those in the congregation who are practicing Catholics felt that it was done very well!
Father Richard truly went above and beyond taking us through each step of the planning process to walking down the aisle. We hold him in the highest regard and recommend him in a heartbeat.
Monsignor Richard was a true professional throughout the whole process. He was VERY organized and thorough. Immediately, my wife and I recognized his experience and the pride he had in his duty and craft. He made us feel comfortable and was very helpful and supportive when we needed him most. We have no critiques whatsoever for Monsignor Richard and highly recommend him for those looking for an officiant in the Albany/Lake George/northern New York area.
Father Richard was very accommodating, attentive and had great suggestions
Father Richard was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely professional and did a wonderful job making sure everyone knew where they were supposed to be and when. Frank and I met with him several times prior to the big day and it helped us to feel as calm as could be on the big day. I would highly recommend Father Richard.
I highly recommend Father Richard to officiate your wedding. We wanted a Catholic ceremony at our wedding venue. We got married this winter and incase of a snow storm did not want 230 guests traveling. Father Richard met with us multiple times to help us plan the ceremony. He also offered a lot of other great advice to us, which was extremely helpful. Father Richard is very punctual, responsive, and on top of everything. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. I could not have asked for more. I cannot believe the attention we received from him. It was very special. Thank you!
Monsignor Richard was a joy to work with. My husband and I wanted a Catholic ceremony, but wanted to have it at our reception venue instead of in church. Monsignor Richard couldn't have been more accommodating or informative. Everything about the process was very easy, he gave us options for readings and prayers and made the ceremony short but very sweet. We've had so many compliments from wedding guests on how lovely the ceremony was. And we were so happy he stayed for dinner! :) My husband and I can't recommend him enough.
Msgr. Richard was easy to work with and does a great job of guiding you through the process so that everything runs as smoothly as possible!
Highly recommended! Msgr. was great!
Monsignor Richard was the perfect officiant for our wedding. From our very first meeting, he was incredibly professional and helpful. He listened to our "needs & wants" and helped us to incorporate that into our ceremony in a very practical way. He was a very calming voice on the day of the wedding in what can be an overwhelming day. He was there for us every step of the way and we would highly recommend him as an officiant for any couple that is fortunate enough to have him as their officiant. -Joe & Brandi Landy
There are so many positives about Father Richard! He was so wonderful throughout our entire wedding planning process. He was super easy to get a hold of and very quick in answering any questions we had. Not to mention he is so nice!! He made our wedding day one to remember and we highly recommend his services to anyone!! Thank you Father Richard!!!
My now husband and I highly recommend Father Richard. We got married October 1st and first met with Father Richard in April. From the moment we met with Father Richard we felt a sense of relief that we weren't just "another couple". He walked us through the timeline of the ceremony and provided us with choices for the readings and what can be included or omitted.
Unfortunately, he was unable to attend our rehearsal because of the high demand/trend for Friday weddings. He told us that immedietly when we expressed our desire to book him for our date so we were well prepared. However, he made sure to arrive at our venue extra early to walk through the process and answer any questions.
We can not express enough how much we appreciate Father Richard.
We contacted Father Richard after having seen him perform a ceremony for friends of ours. In speaking with Father Richard, it is clear he cares about you as a couple and truly wants you to have a long and happy marriage together. Aside from talking about his role in our wedding day, Father Richard offered advice and tips for many other aspects of our wedding; many were things we had not considered. During our meetings, he walked us through the entire process, providing several choices for readings and prayers and overall options for the ceremony. The rehearsal and walk through the day before was incredibly thorough and efficient, with him explaining every step along the way, so the day of our bridal party and parents were confident in their roles. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful, and we could not have been happier with the service. Father Richard has our highest recommendation!
He was a great asset to our wedding planning. He answered all our questions while we were planning and even helped us with our ceremony programs. On the day of the event he blessed my parents and their rosaries and did a great job officiating the ceremony. I would highly recommend him!
Father Christopher Richards was the absolute best! He made my wedding day less hectic and was such a huge help along the way! I would definitely recommend him!
Father Richard helped us in a major way, to organize the whole ceremony process, and he gave us all the TLC that you need from a Catholic priest, leading up to the big day. His guidance was very reassuring, and I highly recommend Father Richard for your wedding, too.
Msgr Richards went above and beyond our expectations from the first time we met with him. Not only was he extremely organized and was able to go through each step of the planning, he also gave us a lot of advice on invitations, RSVP times, and ways to make the day go as smoothly as possible. The day before and the day of, he was very calm and made my husband and I feel at ease for the best day of our lives. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a Catholic Ceremony outside of a church!!
