A truly wonderful experience.
I can not express how pleased I am with every aspect of Ronald’s officiant service. After having an officiant cancel weeks before our wedding, Ronald stepped up on short notice. He far surpassed our expectations in every way, delivering a perfectly customized ceremony and executing it flawlessly. Ronald was warm, funny, professional, and prompt. Many thanks, Ronald!Sent on 11/30/2020

Wonderful and Worry-free
My husband and I were married by Minister Cambest during COVID, and he made our experience personalized and so easy. The process of creating our ceremony was organized and flexible. We had a ton of options for services and vows, as well as the flexibility to include our own touches. Minister Cambest was warm, kind and funny. He spent time with both my husband and with me before the ceremony to answer questions and put our nerves at ease. His ceremony was beautiful and such a wonderful way to start our new chapter. We highly recommend him to couples planning their wedding!Sent on 11/22/2020
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Rebecca, you two showed that it's possible to have a beautiful wedding ceremony in a very respectful and safe manner during these difficult times in our pandemic. You're one of the most thoughtful and loving couples I've had the honor to join and the love that you show and share for each other is inspiring. Many happy, healthy, and joyous years to you and your families.

Minister Ronald J. Cambest BSW
We used Ronald for a traditional ceremony. He was truly great in all aspects. He is very personable, a great speaker, took time to mingle, and get to speak with our guests. Ron made us feel 1000% comfortable, and left us with zero to guess, second guess, or worry about.Sent on 11/23/2020

Best Minister Ever!! Married 10/10/2020
Everything was perfect! Responses through emails were very quick. Easy to pick from his ceremonies/vows or you can do your own. Gave excellent advice for how to do segments of the ceremony (especially for being at Phipps Conservatory for a rose ceremony and unity candle ceremony). So nice and kind, helps the Groom calm down before the ceremony. No rehearsal required and it went smoothly. Provided our marriage license to our county immediately with no issues. Minister Cambest is the best!!! Great for short and sweet ceremonies! We were nervous and didn't want a long ceremony. Thank you so much, Minister Cambest!Sent on 02/16/2021

Absolutely Amazing Experience!
Minister Cambest was absolutely amazing to work with and made our wedding day that much better! He was responsive to all of our many questions, and was flexible with our requests. On the day of our wedding, he arrived timely, checked in on both of us and walked through what we could expect during the ceremony and after with paperwork. We very much enjoyed working with him and are so thankful he was a part of our special day! Thank you sooo very much, Minister Cambest!Sent on 11/26/2020

Amazing wedding ceremony
Throughout our entire wedding planning, Rev. Cambest was there the whole time. Despite having to push back the date of our wedding due to COVID, he worked with us on our new date. He made the ceremony go so smooth and we felt extremely comfortable the entire time. I would recommend him to anyone!Sent on 09/22/2020
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Hi Samantha, thank you so much for taking your time to leave a review. I'm sure other couples will need to hear your words because it can be stressful planning a wedding.

Thank you so much for your trust. Many happy, healthy and joyous years to you both and your families.

My ceremony was beautiful!
Ronald was excellent on my wedding day! He was very pleasant and friendly. He reassured me when the coronavirus pandemic happened and I didn’t know if my day would be ruined. He kept the ceremony sweet and short! I continue to get compliments on how much everyone loved the ceremony. I will definitely recommend him to anyone that needs his services!Sent on 09/10/2020

Zach S. · Married on 08/16/2020
Ronald was fantastic! He checked in with us numerous times leading up to and the day of our wedding and while I tend to be slow with responses, he was always charming and respectful! I couldn't have asked for a better officiant, and would recommend him to anyone that plans to get married! Thanks again to Ronald, and hope all is well, my friend!Sent on 08/21/2020
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Zach, thanks so much for all the kind words, it's folks like you and Malana that make it an honor to be able to preside over beautiful Ceremonies like yours was.

Thanks so much for being the amazing people you both are, many happy and healthy years to you and yours.
Heidi · Married on 08/09/2020
Minister Cambest was the kindest, most professional officiant we could have asked for. He allowed us to personalize as much of our ceremony as we wanted, and always responded promptly to all of my questions! Our ceremony was beautiful! I'm really thankful I was able to have Minister Cambest officiate our marriage, and would highly recommend! Anything you need through your wedding day regarding the ceremony he is there.Sent on 10/11/2019
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Heidi, I'm so glad that your experience was one of joy and that your wedding day was everything that you wanted and dreamed of. You folks were so wonderful to work with and made my experience one of the best and most satisfying ceremonies that I have been involved in. Your family was so warm and kind and I can't tell you how much happiness I felt during your ceremony. Thank you so much for trusting me with such an important day.
Marie T. · Married on 08/05/2020
Minister Cambest was amazing. He preformed our pandemic wedding at our home while social distancing. It was just us, my parents and Minister Cambest. He was very reasonable with the price of his services. I had quotes of over $600 for the 10 minutes ceremony we had imagined which was crazy! He preformed the perfect ceremony for us and didn't cost us an arm and a leg which was very important to us. I would recommend him to anyone for any size wedding. Thank you Minister Cambest!Sent on 05/13/2020
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Hi Marie, it was so nice meeting all of you and having the honor to marry you. Thank you so much for your kind words and I'm glad that I could fit not only a budget but what you needed for one of the most important days of your lives. These are certainly extraordinary times and I'm glad that we could come together in a safe way to bring your love into the light of this world. Many happy and healthy years you both.

Ron is the best!
I cannot recommend Ronald enough. He was professional, articulate, funny and overall a great honor to be at our wedding. We had a little reservation with our ceremony and vow because we added some cultural elements that may not flow well with the template that Ron provided. But he made it work and his delivery was phenomenal. If you are getting married in Pittsburgh, like I said, I cannot recommend him enough.Sent on 08/09/2020
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Josh, thank you so much for the wonderful words. I cannot tell you how beautiful you both are and what great people you and Celia were to share this day with. I had such a great time with you both and I have to say that your Wedding was not only original but really did seem to represent both of your cultures in a meaningful manner. You both did such a great job in planning and instructing me as to the tone of your Vows. Many Happy years to you both.

Getting married during a pandemic made easy!
I’m so thankful I found Ron Chambest to marry my husband and I during the Covid pandemic. He made everything so easy and just what we wanted. He was very quick to respond, we were on a bit of a time crunch. He met us a week later! I’m finally married and I can’t be happier. Thank you, again.Sent on 06/21/2020
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Hi Rachel, it was such a great day and I was so grateful to be able to spend time with you both especially grateful for the honor of joining you two. thank you so much for trusting me on such an important day.
Megan R. · Married on 06/01/2020
Rev Cambest was very helpful and friendly during the entire wedding planning process — he completely took away the stress of the hour before the ceremony and helped get everyone organized. We ended up changing our venue a month before the wedding due to COVID-19, and Mr. Cambest was flexible and positive through the whole process. Thank you for the best day!!!Sent on 08/01/2020
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words Megan. I truly love what I do and it is because couples like you who persevere through so much to make it to their Wedding Day with Love and kindness. There were a lot of bumps in the road but you two made it to the finish line which is such a great starting point for your lives together. many happy years to you both.

The Absolute Best
Minister Cambest was absolutely fantastic to work with. We worked with him for about a year and a half for our 5/30/20 wedding to put together our most perfect ceremony, a mixture of traditional and non-traditional, but full of showing who we are as a couple... then covid hit. There are not enough stars in the world when it comes to rating his flexibility. We had a small ceremony in my parents backyard with our big wedding postponed until 2021. We were so grateful when Minister Cambest was willing to travel about an hour out of his way to accommodate us. He put together the perfect ceremony script for us. We were even more excited to find out he was available for our 2021 date to do a “vow renewal” with our original ceremony script and to incorporate our original wedding day into it. We cannot recommend Minister Cambest enough. We truly lucked out by finding him and cannot wait to work with him again for our postponed wedding!!Sent on 07/11/2020
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Hi Jillian, I'll never forget that day in your parents backyard and how your family came together in such a meaningful way to honor you both with a beautiful ceremony. I do have to say that you two have been truly inspiring to me in the way that you maintained course throughout all of these difficulties. Getting married in the middle of pandemic is no easy feat but you made it look effortless and beautiful. I can't wait to see you guys next year without are masked on. Much love to you both.
Nicole P. · Married on 03/07/2020
My husband and I live in Philadelphia and were looking for an officiant for a Pittsburgh wedding. We could not have been more happy with Minister Cambest! He was so easy to work with, offered suggestions when we were unsure, and was such a professional. Additionally, he had experience performing ceremonies at my venue. I was able to watch a video of a wedding he performed at Heinz Chapel and knew he was the right Officiant for us!Sent on 03/21/2020
Pittsburgh Wedding Officiant's reply:Hi Nicole, I'll never forget your wedding day and I'll never forget how joyful and fun you were both were to be with. One of the most important attributes in a marriage is having a good sense of humor and I can say you both are folks that are easy to be around and you made me laugh harder than I have in a long time. It was so obvious that you two are head over heels in Love and I can't tell you how wonderful it was to be with you both on such a great day. Many happy and healthy years to you and yours.
