I got married on the rooftop and terrace of the Peninsula Hotel on 5th Avenue - I have VERY high standards of perfection (to say the least) and Ron far exceeded my expectations.
I like to say I am a southern belle, perfectionist, type-A personality who (admittedly) could be a bit of a bridezilla while planning my nuptials from afar, and that's why I feel so strongly about the overall support I received from Ron. I am a recruiter and interview individuals professionally by trade, so I pride myself on the fact that I found the BEST officiant in New York/the east coast to facilitate my wedding.
Thank goodness I had Reverend Ron Sheppard to guide me through the process. Ron was absolutely fantastic, hopping on calls months in advance to discuss what I was looking for in my ideal ceremony, and staying in touch (because I was needy) beforehand. Ron arrived early the day of the wedding and delivered a fantastic ceremony that my guests STILL rave about! "Where did you find him?" They said, some even connecting with Ron following the ceremony to get to know him better/recommend him to friends and family. He truly was the best officiate I could have asked for, and it I haven't made it clear already, I demand perfection.
Ron has stayed in touch with us following the ceremony, I feel like he's a family friend at this point! That makes our special day and the memories made last forever, he wasn't just a one time officiant, he is really passionate about his work and it shows. :)
Look no further bride-to-be, Ron is the easiest decision you will make in your planning process.

Professional, thoughtful and kind
Reverend Ron did a fabulous job with our wedding ceremony. From the very start, he was very thoughtful, professional and kind. He tailored the ceremony to what we wanted and talked about love and God in respects to our beliefs. He sent us the draft of the ceremony speech ahead of time for us to review and edit if we needed, but we didn't need to make any edits because it was beautiful. We would highly recommend him.

From the moment my wife and I met with Rev Ron we knew he would be perfect to marry us. He made us feel incredibly comfortable and allowed us to craft a ceremony thats was unique to who we are. His humor and storytelling ability we witnessed while meeting with him carried over to our ceremony, making it memorable and enjoyable for everyone who attended. Rev Ron is absolutely amazing. If you need someone to officiate your weeding, look no further!

Reverend Ron was exactly who we were looking for in a wedding officiant. We knew when we emailed him and later face-timed him that he was the one. He is so responsive to emails, texts, and personable. He truly tries to get to know you and makes your wedding day as special as can be. He was extremely reliable, pleasant, humorous in the best ways, and thoughtful. He's got a great voice - think cinematic picture-type. The city clerk took a while to send us our marriage license, and Rev Ron called them himself and expedited it for us. We couldn't be happier.

We would highly recommend Reverend Ron. We had a small ceremony in Central Park that we were planning from the DC area. Rev Ron took the time to meet with us a few weeks before the ceremony to go over everything and to get to know us a little. On our wedding day the weather was a little uncertain, Rev Ron was extremely flexible knowing that the location may change at the last minute. At the end of the day, we were able to have our perfect ceremony and couldn't be happier that Rev Ron was the one to marry us!!

We spoke to quite a few officiants in our search but we knew Rev. Ron was our man minutes into our initial phone conversation. We had an instant connection with Ron thanks in part to our similar histories but, more importantly, because he understood us and what we wanted (and he certainly delivered). We worked with Ron on our ceremony (even up to the day of the ceremony) just to get it right and he couldn't be more accommodating. Everyone at the wedding loved his ceremony and we did too! Ron is thoughtful, well-spoken, and has a great sense of humor along with a whole lot of heart. He made our special day, just that! -John & Yasmin

We met with Rev Ron over the summer and knew right away he was the person we wanted to marry us. We were just married a few weeks ago and couldn't have been happier with the ceremony. Rev Ron was very warm and professional - he sent us many options to choose from in regards to our ceremony and personal preferences. He was truly a pleasure and we are very happy we chose him - we made the right decision! Would highly recommend.

Rev Ron exceeded our expectations as our Minister for our wedding. His ceremony was personal, funny, sweet and really made our wedding special. Many people commented on what a great service it was and how much they loved Rev Ron. I couldn't recommend Rev Ron more, he is so personable and trust worthy. Look no further then Rev Ron!

We had Reverend Ron Sheppard for our wedding ceremony in Central Park on August 22nd. He made our day so much more special. First of all he is an absolute gentleman and he wrote the most beautiful ceremony for us. Right from the first time that i emailed he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He is so professional and easy to talk to and he made sure we had the ceremony that really wanted. I recommend him highly and i am absolutely delighted that we hired him.
Richard · Married on 08/20/2017
Rev. Ron is a gem. A caring and dedicated professional. I enthusiastically recommend him.
Private · Married on 08/20/2017
Rev. Ron was an absolute joy. He has a gentle and caring spirit that exudes warmth. He took the time to weave the histories of me and my husband together to make our story and the wedding extra special. Rev. Ron utilized a combination of lovely prayers and he chose a perfect New York setting of the Landing in Central Park. Moreover, we got all of these great services at a price the undercut the competition by half. Rev. Ron is not only a minister, but a great value, too.

We cannot begin to express how much Rev Ron's professionalism and loyalty exceeded our expectations during the whole process of us trying to find the perfect officiant for a venue ceremony in Manhattan. Rev Ron was there for us from the minute we chose him to be our officiant and answered all of our emails calls and texts promptly. He was amazing during our wedding and we still get told how amazing he was! I would highly recommend him to anyone of any religion in the New York City area! He was simply the best! He got to know my groom and I using the best words and prayers for our ceremony to best describe us and our relationship. Thank you Rev for everything we appreciate you!
Mark · Married on 06/10/2017
Reverend Ron is awesome. Super helpful with the process, knowledgeable and professional. We even moved the time on the same day, and he accommodated no problem arriving a little early making us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend him
Michele · Married on 06/03/2017
Reverend Ron made our day extra special because of the person he is - simply wonderful!!
Gulden · Married on 05/20/2017
We would confidently recommend Rev Ron to anyone looking for an officiant. He took the time to get to know us before the wedding (and actually listened to what we had to say), and made the ceremony personal. Also, all of our guests had wonderful thoughts to say about him. Rev. Ron put real effort to make our ceremony special. We are very thankful to have Rev. Ron a part of our big day.
Carmen · Married on 04/15/2017
