    Made it absolutely amazing

    My wife and I renewed our vows in Sonoma Valley, at a local inn. We didn't want anything too formal, but did want a ceremony to remember. What an amazing officiant. Made the day spectacular. Thank you so much!!!

    Customized, Personal, Humorous, and Perfect

    Richard was an amazing officiant for my wedding on 11/11/18. He created a very personal and heart warming service. Our families thought he was a close family friend the way he delivered personal anecdotes of our relationship. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant. He's professional, caring, responsive and his dedication to his work is beyond evident. Thank you again, Richard. You are fantastic at what you do!

    Can't say enough! Absolutely wonderful!

    While planning a destination wedding we were worried about being able to find an officiant and be able to connect with them so that they could know us on a more personal level and be able to make our ceremony special to us. We hit the jackpot with Richard Meyer! Richard was very responsive and easy to communicate with via phone and email. His ceremony left all of our guests buzzing. The two questions that we have heard most is, "How did you meet your officiant?!" and "How long has he known you?." Everyone has been shocked to find out we only had met with once in person and a couple phone calls prior to the wedding. Our guests were sure that he was a direct relative or friend of the family. He had a way of tapping into the our journey and making our day unique to us. Richard has a soothing presence and made sure we were calm and present in the moment for our ceremony. He talked us through every step and made the process simple. I can't say enough good things about Richard!!

    Richard is amazing!

    We were introduced to Richard via our wedding planner and after interviewing a few other officiants we knew Richard was the perfect fit for us! We wanted a very personalized ceremony with elements of Jewish/Catholic pieces throughout. Richard did just that! He personalized our ceremony so much that several guests asked if he knew us before or if we were related in any way. He allowed our imaginations to create our own ceremony while adding little extra of his own personal touches throughout. During the course of the evening, half of our guests came up to us at the reception telling us it was the most beautiful ceremony they have ever witnessed. Do yourself a favor and book Richard! You will not be disappointed! He made the process so fun and EASY!!! Thank you Richard, you are the best! The Kings are so fortunate we found you.

    Perfectly Personalized Ceremony

    Our wedding day was absolutely magical and a huge part of that was because of Reverend Meyer and the incredible ceremony he officiated. My husband and I thought long and hard about who we wanted to officiant our special day because we had specific desires for our ceremony. We wanted it to be highly personal, strike a balance between spirituality and inclusivity, and we wanted the process to be collaborative. We were so fortunate to find Rev. Meyer because he gave us all of these things and more!

    He surprised us by speaking words that we had written about each other but never shared together. He helped come up with ways to include our family members in the actual ceremony and really listened to us about what we wanted the message of our ceremony to be. It was a perfect balance of sharing our thoughts and ideas and then Rev. Meyer taking over and crafting a beautiful and very thoughtful ceremony.

    If our experience wasn't proof enough, we had almost every single person at our rather large wedding come up to us and rave about how our ceremony was the best they'd ever experienced. They thought it flowed beautifully, captivated their attention, and made them feel like they knew us even better as a couple. It set everyone up to have an incredible rest of the night at our reception. And if you're working with a planner, they'll love how Rev. Meyer is so organized and directive. He knows what he's doing!

    Thank you Rev. Meyer!!

    Richard made our wedding ceremony perfect!

    We were originally planning to have a friend officiate our wedding, but when plans fell through we had to find a new officiant with only a couple of months to spare. After reading all the rave reviews, we contacted Richard and immediately decided he was a perfect fit for us. He was so responsive and professional, and we really enjoyed the entire process of planning our ceremony with him. After the wedding, our friends and family couldn't believe Richard hadn't known us our whole lives! He really went the extra mile to get to know us and incorporate our personalities into our ceremony. If you're looking for an amazing officiant experience, I would definitely recommend Richard! He made the entire process stress-free and gave us a very special ceremony we will cherish forever.

    Richard was amazing

    Richard officiated our wedding at Silverado this past July and did a wonderful job. He really took the time to get to know us beforehand and mixed in the exact right amount of humor, sincerity, and theme during the ceremony. He was also less expensive than many (all) other officiants in the Napa area, despite being an A+ choice.

    Felt at ease

    Reverend Richard Meyer was a pleasure to have as our wedding officiant. I wanted to meet him beforehand because I wanted to be comfortable with all the people who would be standing beside me during the ceremony (my husband and Richard). He was willing to meet us beforehand so that we could get to know him a bit and feel confident in choosing our officiant for the day. Reverend Richard was able to tailor the ceremony to our needs. We wanted a non-denominational ceremony that was spiritual, but still referenced some of our Catholic and Christian backgrounds. He made us and our guests feel comfortable during the ceremony, was funny but also serious when it needed to be, and set a nice tone for the rest of our wedding. I would highly recommend Reverend Richard as a wedding officiant.

    Richard did an amazing job and we could not have been more happy with our wedding ceremony!! We had a very diverse group of wedding guests - including friends and family with many differing religious beliefs. We chose to have a ceremony that was not really very religious and I was nervous that we might get some negative feedback from our more religious guests. But we LOVED the ceremony that Richard created for us and felt that it really captured who we were as a couple and the love that we have for each other. And afterwards we received so many compliments from our guests!! It really was a beautiful ceremony. Richard was so nice, professional, and easy to communicate with. We would gladly recommend him to anyone searching for their wedding officiant! Thank you Richard!!

    The BEST Officiant in Wine Country

    Rev Meyer is hands down the best wedding officiant in wine country. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Rev Meyer. He is extremely professional and very accommodating to wants and needs. He set the tone for the events of the evening. It was important to us to have an officiant that not only knew our story but could also share it with our guest. Rev Meyer listened and studied our love story; we felt as though he had known us all of our lives. His voice in your wedding video is also first class. I HIGHLY recommend Rev Meyer for your special day in wine country.

    Wedding planning can be a hectic and crazy and sometimes stressful experience, but if you choose Richard as your officiant, you will definitely not have to worry about the ceremony! Richard brought with him a sense of calm, warmth and humor that made our ceremony relaxed and fun. Richard's service doesn't just start with the ceremony, however. He is there throughout the whole process of designing the ceremony. He wrote a very personalized script that incorporated our personal stories and anecdotes. He made our ceremony effortlessly feel like ours, and we couldn't thank him enough for being part of this treasured memory. Thank you Richard!

    Like I'm sure many people, we didn't really know what we wanted from our officiant. Most of what my wife and I could agree on was what we didn’t want in the ceremony! Richard's experience and intuition took care of that. After sending him a somewhat vague and challenging list of wants he delivered a perfect, personal ceremony. Guests we were not expecting to have much to say about the ceremony gave us glowing reviews of Richard’s speech. We couldn’t be happier with our choice. Thank you Richard!

    Rev Richard Meyer was such a pleasure to work with. He made my job as the wedding planner so much easier. He had a detail timeline that he worked closely with the bride and groom weeks prior, arrived early on site, was so organizing and professional and even with a little hick up with the microphone, he was able to work around it and made a beautiful ceremony celebration for my couple. He is simply the best!

    Richard came highly recommended from our wedding coordinator and boy was she spot on! We started off by meeting Richard for coffee. He made us feel comfortable, walked us through the entire process and helped us get to know him as a person. We honestly didn't know what went into the ceremony and how someone could get to know us without really knowing us for years. Well, he did it. Richard gave us a heart-felt, personable and meaningful ceremony. One thing that I remember hearing the most (and I can't count how many people came up to me) was immediately following the ceremony to say how wonderful our ceremony was and how much they loved our officiant. Richard was a complete success. I still have people telling me how much they enjoyed the ceremony and what a great guy they thought he was. You won't be sorry if you choose to have Richard as your officiant!

    Rev Meyer was absolutely amazing from the beginning! Not only the ceremony was funny, touching and so personalized but before ceremony he also went with us thru some ceremony details we would never think about . All our guests were impressed and asking where did we find him. We could hear just compliments about him. We absolutely recommend him! Thank you rev Meyer for such a memorable ceremony!

    Richard is an absolute dream. Not only did he give us the most touching and beautiful ceremony he helped us through the whole process. We married in Sonoma out of state and he took the time to really get to know us, share ideas, and help with pre-wedding nerves. Love, Love, Love Richard!

    Richard was our officiant for our wedding on 11-5-16 at Brasswood Estate in Napa Valley. The whole process of working with him was seamless and we could not be happier with his services. When we finally got to our ceremony we loved how he personalized it for us and it exceeded our expectations.

    Do not even waste your time looking anywhere else! Richard is absolutely incredible. I have to say, I was concerned when I was going through the process of picking out an officiant, but he completely nailed it in every way possible. I was so impressed with all of the personal touches, it was as if he had known us and our relationship better than we did ourselves. I had people calling for weeks afterward telling me that it was the best ceremony they've ever been to. People even asked if we had known Richard before starting this process. There aren't enough words to say how happy we are with the outcome!

    Richard was our officiant for our wedding on 9.24.16 at Solage Calistoga and he was amazing! Our friends and family actually thought Richard was a family friend, because the ceremony was so personal. They were shocked to hear that we met him day of. I loved the way he set up the ceremony. I mixed and matched his ceremony templates to make it our own. He then had us answer a confidential questionnaire about each other. Everything came together better than I could have ever imagined. It was like we wrote our own vows without having to actually write them, and it wasn't cheesy at all! It was such an emotional and unforgettable ceremony! I highly recommend Richard's services.
