  • We hired Rick to do our non-denominational ceremony in the Paso Robles area, and we couldn't have been happier! He was so helpful with helping us craft the ceremony that we really wanted - he took our ideas and made it so unique to us and exactly what we had envisioned. Before talking with him I was a little concerned as I had very strong ideas of what I did or didn't want in our ceremony, but Rick allayed all my fears and totally delivered. We had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed our ceremony, and how engaging and perfect Rick was. He has a great cadence and a perfect rapport with the people he's marrying and with the audience. I would highly recommend hiring Rick!

  • We felt privileged to have Rick Comstock as our Officiant. Not only did he accept our last minute need four days before our wedding Date due to our original officiant cancelling. He did the best professional job. We couldn't ask for more, we appreciate all the time he put in our special day with such little notice and did an awesome job! He was so respectful and made everything seem so smooth. If you are looking for an officiant Rick is the one you want he is well worth it!

  • All I can say is that Pastor Rick Comstock exceeded all expectations that we had when coordinating an officiant for our wedding. With 2 weeks notice during the COVID pandemic he was able to guide, assist, create, implement and facilitate an amazing ceremony that was tailored specifically to us. He had a short time to get to know us and in turn it felt like we had known him forever. He created a ceremony outline that was absolutely perfect and even had hints of humor along the way. He was extremley detailed about interactions that happened amongst us as couple and him as the officiant throughout the process and brought them to life in the ceremony. Overall, I would highly recommend him to anyone and even when we travel back to the area we plan to meet with him for coffee as he is an amazing person!

  • My husband and I met with Rick in summer of 2019 and were immediately impressed with his professionalism, experience, and personality. We were/are so excited to have Rick on our team. He immediately sent us tons of resources and example ceremonies which was super helpful because our google searches of ceremony content was leading us to all the same readings and vows we've seen and heard over and over. With the resources he sent us we were able to easily identify readings, homilies, and vows that really resonated with us. Our wedding date was 4/4/2020 and as we all know that was/has been during the peak of COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we had to postpone our wedding until 4/3/2021. When this became our reality we were SO thankful for Rick's flexibility and understanding. Fortunately for us Rick was available for our new wedding date. Although we chose to postpone our big celebration a year we decided to elope on our original wedding date, in our home, with just our mothers present. ... Read more

  • Rick was amazing. We planned our wedding from out of state, had some specific additions to our readings we wanted and were somewhat difficult to keep in close contact with. At no point did we feel bothered or rushed by Rick. He was kind, extremely patient and very understanding. He is easy to work with, accommodating and friendly. Our family and guests loved him and our ceremony turned out perfect. I would choose him 100 times over and would recommend him to anyone seeking an officiant.

  • Rick was amazing and attentive! We wanted a very small ceremony and he helped put it together. We met with him and discussed our story and our needs for our ceremony. Rick was able to take all that and turn it into an amazing ceremony. Originally we wanted a short elopement, and rick was able to keep it short while still making it feel so special and intimate for our friends and family. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone planning a wedding small or large!

  • We are eternally grateful to Rick for setting the perfect tone for our wedding ceremony. It was simple, sweet, and very much reflected what my husband and I are truly are as a couple. 🙂 All our guests, esp our family, were touched by the words, and the thoughtful way he let us be the center of the ceremony. It was very easy to work with Rick during the planning stage - he was responsive, pleasure to talk to, and always ready with useful tips. He sent us several materials which really saved us a lot of time! We are so happy with how everything turned out! 😊 Oh and I loved the bow tie! ❤️ Rick always make sure that his outfit complements the wedding theme which is a big plus for us! 👍🏼 For all the brides out there looking to make your day extra special, get in touch with Rick. He doesn’t disappoint! 😊

  • From the very beginning, Rick was wonderful to work with. Although my now-husband and I had never met him in person before we hired him, it felt like we had known each other for years after our first phone conversation. Rick is incredibly personable and did a great job of incorporating both humor and emotion into the ceremony, sometimes at unexpected moments and always with perfect timing. We got compliments from multiple guests afterward! If you want the opportunity to create a ceremony that is uniquely yours and not the cookie-cutter “dearly beloved”, Rick is the man for you!

  • We didn't know what a treasure we had been referred to! We were so focused on flowers, food and attire and thought the officiant was just a means of making it legal. Boy did he prove us wrong. Rick has got this down for all of us who are so busy with other things. He showed up and started his magic... He knew who he had to coordinate with before the ceremony to make sure it was seamless & and perfect. He is a seasoned officiant and knows the drill so you don't have to worry about anything. You're in the best hands with Rick. He is passionate about life, love and marriage. He has a very polished appearance, eloquent in his delivery, captivating, charming, funny and edgy. Food gets eaten, flowers taken away, tuxedos returned, but the memory of Rick Comstock's ceremony will forever be remembered and always treasured! ( CHE TESORO) C & C

  • Do yourself a favor and just HIRE RICK FOR YOUR WEDDING! Rick was our officiant for our wedding in Paso Robles in October 2019 and finding him was like hitting the jackpot. Before we found Rick, I was a little worried about finding an officiant that would create a ceremony that felt like "us" and not just your run of the mill wedding ceremony. He was amazing to work with from start to finish (he sent us a ton of example ceremonies), he was helpful, professional, affordable, calming and overall just really enjoyable to work with. I can't even begin to count the number of our guests that came up to us during our reception to tell us how much they loved the ceremony and how great Rick did. Seriously, don't miss your opportunity to have Rick officiate your wedding. You will not regret it!

  • Rick did an amazing job with our ceremony! We wanted to include a special prayer that was important to us, and he incorporated it so beautifully into the ceremony. Rick was so accommodating with everything that we were looking for in our ceremony, even down to the outfit! He wanted to make sure he fit in with the look and feel of the wedding, which was so amazing! Couldn't have asked for a better officiant!

  • Rick Comstock was the perfect addition for completing our fairy tale wedding. He was so good at getting our vision and implementing what our hopes were for our unforgettable day. He worked so well with me to refine and perfect his role and help us do the same for ours. I was impressed with his sensitivity to our specific situation bringing two families from two different religious backgrounds together seamlessly. I would highly recommend Rick and describe him as professional, sensitive and accommodating making sure to meet the needs of the Bride and Groom.

  • My husband and I were married in August 2019 in Santa Barbara and Rick was everything we could want in an officiant. I spoke with 3 other officiants in addition to Rick and Rick stood out. He was friendly, super flexible with our schedule since we weren't local, and sent us A TON of materials to help us decide what type of ceremony and readings we wanted. We added a lot of humor to the reading of our story, and Rick's comedic timing was pure perfection but he was also able to be very serious. He had us and the crowd laughing one second and tearing up the next. Rick also had a great tactic of standing right behind us during part of the ceremony and stepping away for other parts so our photographer was able to snap a plethora of great photos some with Rick and some with just my husband and I, a small detail but very well thought out by Rick. Rick also makes sure to dress in a suit that's similar to the groomsmen or whatever the bride/groom want. Also totally dig his bowties. We were luck... Read more
