  • Rick was an absolute pleasure to work with. Even though we planned it early, he kept in close contact and was easily reachable. Rick gave us wonderful resources to use for our ceremony, and when we couldn't quite come up with a perfect plan and placed it in his hands, he created a beautiful and thoughtful work of art for us. He was knowledgeable from his years of experience working with all kinds of couples! We felt instantly at ease from the first phone call and knew we would be using him immediately. He has a gentle nature to him and knows how to support and guide his intended couple. The magical day finally came and Rick had everything ready for us, even our vows printed which was so relieving. He was steady, and focused, and kept us relaxed. Sometimes you are just so focused on your own emotions you need a capable leader to help you with each part of the ceremony- That is what Rick is and was to us. So so friendly and kind and personable. Rick, you made a once-in-a-lifetime moment ... Read more

  • My husban and I were able to have Rick as our officiant and we loved our ceremony. Rick was always so informative and made the whole process so enjoyable. It was personalized to us and all though we had a very small wedding, everyone felt the love and enjoyed the ceremony. Thank you so much Rick!

  • Rick was a fantastic officiant for our elopement. He was communicative throughout the entire ceremony planning process and gave us good examples of how to structure our ceremony and what to include. The day of the wedding he arrived early and sharply dressed, and gave us the exact ceremony we asked for. Thank you for helping create beautiful memories of our wedding day, Rick!

  • Rick was absolutely amazing! He was extremely responsive to our emails and was professional in all his responses. On the day of the wedding, the portion of 'our story' was so put together and beautifully read - both of our families were amazed! It was as if he'd known us through our whole relationship and not just for two weeks prior! We also included both of our pups in the ceremony and he was wonderful with them both. Rick truly went above and beyond what we could have ever wanted!

  • Rick did an amazing job officiating our wedding last week (5/1/21). We did not know where to begin when creating a ceremony and he did a wonderful job walking us through the whole thing. He was so professional and timely. He responds to emails and texts very quickly as well. We got to know him on a personal level which was so nice. My favorite part was that he created "our story" by asking us to send our own versions and him putting it together in his own words and making it a surprise on our wedding. We are so thankful for Rick and highly recommend him! Thank you Rick!!

  • My wife and I, having to delay a full wedding with our family and friends, decided to have private elopement ceremony that we still wanted to make feel like a real wedding. Rick came highly recommended to us and turned out to be exactly what we needed. He worked with us for weeks in advance to help write the full ceremony script - he had great suggestions and a ton of experience to draw from. We loved his personality - always witty and full of stories. On the day of the wedding, he arrived a little early to help make sure everything went smoothly. The ceremony went off without a hitch and I wouldn't have changed a thing. We would recommend Rick to anyone looking, and if we do ultimately have a full wedding in the area, we will absolutely hire him again.

  • We found Rick through a recommendation from an established wedding coordinator in the Central Coast, she had told us that Rick was her absolute favorite officiant. We planned our ceremony with 72 hours notice when we found out my father only had a few months left to live. Rick kindly took us on, even with such little notice. Rick was lovely to communicate with and spent the time getting to know us and our love story. The ceremony was perfect. Rick was the perfect mix of funny and sentimental, our guests were laughing and crying throughout our ceremony. Thank you Rick for everything!

  • Rick was super charismatic and easy to work with. We hired him 6-months before our wedding but didn't start the process of creating the ceremony until 2-months before (this was our fault) and he was super laidback about it. He was very patient and guided us along the way towards a perfect ceremony. We had several friends come up to us after the ceremony and tell us how great of job he did. You absolutely cannot go wrong with Rick; he gets it. That aside, when we initially connected with him over the phone he was very professional and had a tried-and-tested approach to ensuring our day was unique and special to us. Thank you, Rick!

  • I found Rick by simply just scrolling on Google looking for an officiant! When I came across Rick’s profile I instantly knew he was the best match for us! From the moment I decided on Rick to the moment we were married (and even after with some questions) I knew choosing him to officiate our wedding was the best decision! From beginning to end he was always so kind, responsive, helpful, and patient! I highly recommend Rick, such a great officiant and person all the way around! Thank you Rick for being apart of our day, we are so happy you could be our officiant!

  • We were about a month away from our wedding day and found Rick. He outlined a plan and provided us with information right away so we could get the ball rolling. He was professional and extremely kind. Our wedding ceremony went beautifully and his tips were useful.

  • Our wedding was so perfect because of Rick. From the moment I reached out to him, he guided, and was there for us. I cannot be happier that we found him. He was attentive and so interested in making things go smoothly, and as we wanted. He thought of everything and made it a pleasure for us, as well.

  • I would recommend Rick to anyone looking for an overall well rounded officiant. Due to covid, our international wedding plans in got canceled and we were forced to start from the beginning with wedding planning. Luckily, my wedding planner shared how amazing Rick is and he truly lived up to those standards. His work ethic is outstanding, easy to work with and very knowledgeable. Rick is personable, funny, sentimental and has a great demeanor. Rick received many compliments from all of our guests at the ceremony. Rick shared our story as if he had known my husband and I for years. His passion for his job radiates from the inside out. He is incredible and I promise anyone that chooses to book with Rick will not be let down!

  • We are so happy we found Rick! We found him about a month out from our wedding, and he worked hard and quickly with us to come up with an amazing ceremony. We didn't know what exactly we wanted for our ceremony, but he was able to provide guidance to help steer us in the right direction. The day was so intimate, and we could not have pictured it going better! He was able to show our personalities through the ceremony, and was a huge and memorable part of our special day!
