Reverend Richard was amazing, He truly cares about the couples that he works with and takes the time to get to know them prior to preforming your service. We were worried that we would not find someone that we would feel comfortable with, but once we met Reverend Richard we knew we found the right person to do our ceremony. He also allows you to create your own ceremony, he provides numerous options for each part of the ceremony and allows you to choose what option you want, this allows your ceremony to personal to you! He arrived early and went over everything with us prior to the ceremony so there was no surprises. I would highly recommend Reverend Richard to anyone that is looking for someone to preform their wedding!!!!Sent on 09/30/2019

Rev Rich married us on 9/14/19. He was great throughout the planning process and was always available to answer questions and give feedback. His process was very easy and we were able to customize our wedding to what fit us and our personalities. He is familiar with a lot of different unity ceremonies and traditions as well which is great. Overall we were very happy and would definitely recommend him!Sent on 10/01/2019

Rich was great and made the whole process easy and stress free!
Rich was super nice and made me and my fiancé so comfortable thru the whole process. We were quite nervous to speak in from of a large group of people but he assured us we would be just fine. He gave us options with almost everything from when and where to say our vows and more. I would recommend his services over and over again!Sent on 09/15/2019

We booked Richard Rodriguez to officiate our jewish/christian interfaith wedding. I cannot begin to tell you how many officiants we either met with or spoke to on the phone or through email. It was daunting. By the time we got to Richard we were drained and dejected to say the least. We met with Richard in a Panera Bread to get to know each other and ended up sitting for close to 3 hours. He took the time to want to get to know us, how we met, why we are together, how do resolve conflict, how do we communicate, what our are plans for building our love for one another. It wasn't a sale. He didn't make salesy promises. His faith guides him. He is honorable and it was evident from every point of communication with him. We wanted a very multi-dimensional interfaith ceremony and I will tell you point blank the ceremony program he created for us was miraculous. I knew from reading it that on the "day of" performed in front of our friends and family it would elicit tremendous emotion...and it did. Richard did an excellent job. My jewish mother loved him. He recited the sheva brachot in Hebrew. For that alone he deserves a great review. He recited 1st corinthians with pride and poise. He was honestly sensational...and affordable, and on time, and professional. Moreso than simply officiating our wedding, my wife and I both hope to continue the relationship with him through his mentorship & counsel. Overall, a good good man.Sent on 09/04/2019

Rich was simply Amazing. He made us feel comfortable and listened to all of our wants for our ceremony. He has a quick response time and everytime, we made changes there was no issue. The day of the wedding he was on time and everything was so effortlessly smooth. I'm so glad we found him. So many people forget that an officiant plays a huge role in your wedding. I have no regrets at all! We even got keepsake program, vows, reader passage and a marriage license from Rich! I couldn't thank you for such a wonderful ceremony!!!! If you don't book him your missing out!Sent on 08/22/2019

Reverend Richard Rodriguez is a God send to put it in small words.Sent on 07/06/2019
We first met with him and we felt as if we were receiving pre-marriage counseling. The things he taught us, we have practiced till today and will continue to practice. He demonstrates what a great wedding officiant should be. He is very detail oriented, kind, personable and an all around pleasure to be around. We highly recommend Reverend Richard Rodriguez for your wedding officiant needs!

Beautiful wedding ceremony by a wonderful officiant
Rev. Rodriguez is an absolute pleasure to work with. He was responsive throughout the planning process, guiding us each step of the way and easing the stress of planning a wedding. He performed our tailored ceremony just as we imagined. He was extremely patient, professional, and polite to our guests. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone getting married.Sent on 04/20/2019

Rebecca Mitchell · Married on 05/04/2019
Reverend Richard went above and beyond for my husband and I. Our wedding plans were up in the air and changed drastically when my husband had a stroke 17 days before our wedding. Reverend Richard was understanding, patient, flexible, but also concerned and compassionate. He reached out to me while we were in the hospital and after being discharged home just to check on my husbands status. He was a real comfort during a very difficult time for us and having him perform our very intimate ceremony at our home for us and our families was very beautiful.Sent on 05/05/2019

Humble and kind
More then just a country song, Rev. Rodriguez is beyond humble and kind. He really goes the extra mile to make sure the bride and groom enjoy, remember, and are set up for success in their marriage. From the tokens to remember your special day, the pictures before and after, and even just his tone throughout the day, he really found his true second calling.Sent on 10/21/2018

Donald · Married on 10/19/2018
Rev. Rodriguez was everything and more than we expected. He made the process of getting married easy and always kept up informed on the steps we needed to take so all our paperwork was ready on our big day. My favorite part about hiring Revered Rodriguez was that he video chatted us for an hour to get to know us, and then met with us for about 2 hours to talk/give us advice. During these encounters, it felt more as if we were talking to a wise new friend rather than a vendor. My husband and I were so grateful for his advice and feel comfortable reaching out to him in the future. Also, I was a little nervous about my vows and wanted to make sure they were appropriate. I sent them to Rev. Rodriguez and not only did he answer in a timely matter, but he reassured me and make a joke which made me laugh (this is how I started the morning of our wedding). He is a great, great man and you will be forever grateful like we are if you hire him. Thank you to our new friend, Rev. Rodriguez!Sent on 10/22/2018

Rev. Richard made our day extremely special
Reverend Richard worked very hard to make our day special and very memorable. Throughout the planning process he was thoughtful, reassuring and genuine. When we met Reverend Richard several months before our wedding we knew that he needed to be the person who married Jess and me because he is a careful listener and a thoughtful planner. Our family and friends thought that Reverend Richard did an amazing job making our ceremony beautiful.Sent on 10/15/2018

I honestly could not have asked for a better officiant, Rich made our entire wedding very special and easy. He was always responsive to questions that we had. He met with us prior to our wedding and when he gave our ceremony it felt like an old friend that knew us. I couldn't recommend him more if you want your day to be special!Sent on 10/14/2019
