    Kind and knowledgable!

    Ron was very helpful and pleasant. He provided a Christian script for our wedding that was perfect for us. Instead of paying him, Ron asked us to donate to his favorite charity, which we gladly did.

    Absolutely perfect!

    Ron is the perfect person to conduct your wedding. He is a true professional, very accommodating and extremely helpful. He even helped us decorate the gazebo for our Micro-wedding. His ceremony is beautiful. A friend recommended him after attending one of his ceremonies. At the end of our ceremony and friend came up to me and commented that Ron's ceremony was the most beautiful she had ever heard.

    Ron's amazing!

    Ron was the perfect officiant and was so lovely to work with, especially with planning during a pandemic! He was very kind, thoughtful, and was able to choose readings that fit us perfectly. He definitely kept us both at ease and we went into the big day stress-free! He was truly wonderful to work with and has such a kind heart and donates all his fees to the American Cancer Society. Would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for the perfect officiant to make their day special.

    Personable, passionate and professional

    Ron is a wonderful officiant who has an incredible passion for wedding ceremonies and their underlying meaning for the couple. I actually first knew Ron when he was the Athletic Director at my high school. My husband and I met through swimming and knew Ron understood our love for the sport and could incorporate it flawlessly into our ceremony. After discussing preferences, Ron mixes your ideas with his recommendations into a draft of the ceremony. We made a few changes and loved how Ron included everything we discussed, but still left part of the ceremony unscripted. During the rehearsal, Ron walked us through what to do during specific parts, such as our reading and the exchange of rings. On the day of, after Ron announces you as husband and wife he makes a point to step to the side for your first kiss photo. In lieu of a fee, Ron asks his couples to donate to Relay for Life which benefits the American Cancer Society. If you are looking for someone who is personable, passionate and professional, I highly recommend Ron as your wedding officiant.

    Ron is a perfect choice

    Mark and I just wanted to make sure to let you know how much we appreciated and valued the service you gave us for our wedding. Your words, your guidance, your humor and candor ... it was really great!! We feel like we could not have made a better choice. We have had many people tell us how touching the service was, and in particular the vows ... (which is why we kept your written version). You made us comfortable, were professional, and personable. And the service was perfect! Thanks so much for helping to make our day special!!

    Wonderful!

    Ron was so wonderful! He was the perfect officiant for our intimate wedding. We loved his message and how he custom wrote it to capture the personality, lifestyle, and love between my husband and I. He made the rehearsal and ceremony so calming and special and we will forever be thankful for having him be apart of our day!

    Excellent Officiant!

    Ron is wonderful! We planned an elopement in about a month and a half, after postponing our originally planned wedding because of COVID. From the moment we hired Ron as our elopement officiant, he made us feel at ease about our ceremony. He worked with us to customize our ceremony to fit what we wanted. And he was able to understand what we wanted so quickly, even if we weren't great at explaining it. He was also responsive and punctual and well-spoken and everything else you want in an officiant. And to top it off, his "fee" comes in the form of a donation to the American Cancer Society, so your wedding can do some good. Highly recommend hiring Ron!

    Ron was amazing!

    Ron was amazing! He is truly such an inspiration and all around wonderful guy. My Husband and I met with Ron about a month before our wedding, and we knew right then and there how professional and awesome he was! Ron was so confident and he did add some humor during the ceremony, which we loved!

    Ron was flat out wonderful!!. He guided us through the process, always responded quickly, was professional, and we immediately felt confident and comfortable with his warmth, wisdom, and knowledge. To top this off, all his fees went to the American Cancer Society. He is an outstanding choice for an officiant!

    Excellent!

    Ron was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was recommended by our venue and we are so glad we chose him to officiate our wedding! He assisted us in thoughtfully brainstorming our ceremony script and he helped us personalize our ceremony by including little pieces of who we are. Throughout the entire experience, Ron was very responsive and easy to communicate with. When we wanted one change to the script and Ron quickly made this change and sent us an updated script. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and just as we had pictured it! I am so glad we chose to work with Ron!

    Bringing the perfect balance of joy and reflection

    Ron married my husband and I on a uncharacteristically warm outside ceremony in October. Ron was recommended by our venue's owners, and as soon as we met with him, we knew he would be perfect for marrying us. From first meeting until our wedding day, he was professional, helped to bring our visions to life, and provided some thoughtful suggestions that we hadn't previously thought of, such as taking a moment during the ceremony to give flowers to our parents in recognition of their support. He took the time to get to know us, and brought that joy into the ceremony. He's a wonderful man and pillar of the community, who radiated joy - and we appreciate everything that he does in translating these joyful occasions into something significant with his charity work. We could not recommend him enough!

    Weddings are so special because of the unconditional love on display for all guests to see! Lindsay and Dan exemplified that true love. When they held hands to exchange vows, all else stopped. So happy their day was so beautiful and everything they wished for.

    Ron was fantastic, even agreeing to officiate our wedding on his birthday! Truly a sign of someone who loves what he does. A big factor in our decision to have Ron officiate was that he only accepts donations that he then donates for cancer research.

    We met with Ron twice, the initial introduction meeting then to rehearse our ceremony the day before our wedding. In between, Ron provided guidance for our ceremony readings paying close attention to our requests - cultural, religious, personal, and anything else - and helping us tailor a wonderful program.

    At the rehearsal, Ron was instrumental in guiding us through the process, clearly explaining where everyone should be, all the exchanges from father/daughter to vows and rings, and ensuring that all questions were answered.

    On the big day, Ron made sure everything went smoothly and everyone stayed as calm as could be! His delivery was warm and genuine. Always smiling, Ron was masterful in orchestrating the ceremony while making sure the focus was on us and the bridal party.

    We would highly recommend Ron for his officiating services for your big day! Thank you so much, Ron!

    Ron was great! My husband wanted his friend to do the ceremony, but it was a slightly difficult process making that legal. We then met Ron, who was willing to let our friend do the ceremony, and Ron officially married us right after. He filed the paperwork promptly the next day. He also only asks for a donation that he gives to cancer research.

    Ron was wonderful! Recommended by another couple, we jumped at the chance to have Ron be our officiant! He doesn’t make money for this but uses it as a way to raise money for cancer research. It was honor to work with him and he created the perfect ceremony for us. Thank you so much!

    Ron was so very kind to us on our big day. He provided the legal services that we needed for our union while our good friend spoke for us at our ceremony. He was very timely in his responses and was on time to the event. The short vows that we spoke with him were very lovely and we couldn't have asked for anything better.

    My wife and I contacted Ron to elope and he made the process so easy for us. He wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and catered it to our personal needs. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant. As we both scrambled to get ready on time, I walked up to where we would be married, and Ron was standing there ready to get things going. It was just a relief to see him there as I had no clue what I was doing haha. He had some great words for me as I waited for the bride and gave me some advice that I will never forget. Thank you Ron we could not have been happier with how our wedding went. Jeremiah and Megan

    We are so happy we were referred Ron to officiate our wedding. He was very responsive, gave us great guidance and helped us integrate family into the ceremony seamlessly. And, he works for a great cause taking donations to the American Cancer Society as his form of payment. That is when we knew we picked the right person!

    We were thoroughly pleased with Ron’s handling of our wedding. He was the ultimate professional but also made us feel extremely comfortable and confident that our ceremony would be beautiful. He allowed us to completely customize our vows and ceremony but also provided us with a base to start. He was prompt, put guests at ease pre-ceremony and even pinned my mom’s corsage on before the ceremony. Ron adds some humor but also calmness to what could be a stress filled day. He managed to improvise quickly (with humor) when we realized the wedding rings were still inside the house during our backyard wedding. The most endearing part is his request to donate to the American Cancer Society instead of paying a direct fee to him. He was perfect for us!

    Ron is an amazing Celebrant. Responsive from initial contact. Very mindful and attentive to our needs and special requests. Full of suggestions and solutions. Showed up on time, with a smile on a rainy day for an outdoor wedding. He Brough the sun with him as the rain cleared up son as he arrived. This man is a total blessing and should be your first call!

    Ron was recommended to us by our venue and we could not have found a better person to officiate our wedding. As soon as we met him, we knew we were in good hands. He offered guidance but made sure the ceremony was what we wanted it to be, and it turned out beautifully. He also does not accept payment, he instead asks that you make a donation to the American Cancer Society. Simply amazing! He is such a great person, and we feel so fortunate to be married by him.

    Ron did a great job with our ceremony. He met with us prior to booking him and suggested a ceremony that would work for us. He was even able to come to our rehearsal. He does not have any "fees," but asks you to donate to the American Cancer Society. He is a very kind man and was great to work with. I would highly recommend him!

    Ron was amazing!! We were a bit last minute hiring a officiant, and were planning the wedding from across the country so had to do a bunch of phone conversations to try and find the right person. The second we started talking to Ron we knew we had the right person, he was friendly, kind and asked all the right questions. Plus his fee went towards a contribution to the American Cancer Society, which was great, he had started doing this in order to not only support love but to help support an amazing cause. He provided suggestions for a ceremony script, helped us quickly put something together and showed up on time. Plus he printed out a version of my vows (the bride) so I didn't have to worry about figuring out a way to carry them. If you are looking for an officiant who will help make your day special, look no further, Ron's your guy!

    Ron was perfect in every way. He was great to work with leading up to the wedding, suggested a ceremony that fit what we wanted, and was amazing the day of. We got several comments afterwards about how short and sweet our ceremony was (which was exactly what we wanted). Ron is a great man and we highly recommend him.

    Ron was the perfect officiant for our wedding this summer. Neither my husband or I are particularly religious, however, we wanted to find someone that would perform a meaningful, light-hearted ceremony to celebrate and honor our love for one another. We met with Ron a few months out from our wedding day, and knew he was our guy. Not only is he a Green Bay Packers fan, which won Kevin over immediately, he is very personable, and a cancer survivor, dedicated to raising money and finding a cure for the disease. Rather than asking his clients to pay a standard fee for his services, Ron encourages them to make a donation to his Relay for Life team or his annual golf tournament. Proceeds for both events go directly to the American Cancer Society. We were really drawn to Ron for this reason. Kevin and I both value the importance of giving back and bettering our community, which is exactly what Ron is all about. He was very open to letting us have free reign in regards to piecing together our ceremony with readings and other traditions we wanted to include, and he offered several suggestions to help guide us toward the type of ceremony we had envisioned. After a few email exchanges, we had finalized everything and Ron was more than willing to come to our rehearsal the evening before, so we knew exactly what to expect. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and went off without a hitch. Ron kept the ceremony short and sweet, as our wedding was outdoors in the heat of the summer, and our guests commented on just how fitting it was for the venue, and for Kevin and I as a couple. We could not have been more pleased, and love that we got to donate to a meaningful cause, near and dear to Ron. He will not disappoint and comes highly recommended!
