  • Our wedding and ceremony was our idea of perfect. Richard was so amazing. He took so much time getting to really know and understand my fiancé and I and tailored a ceremony to meet what we wanted. his words were moving, and spoke to our hearts. we are not religious but spiritual and he really was able to provide us with the most sacred blessing of our union as husband and wife. We were left with the most beautiful memories. Thank you so much Richard. The few Family members we had present were very moved. This is forever something that we will be thankful for. Beautiful. He also was amazingly helpful in assisting us getting our license out of state we needed a little direction of where to go and when. He was so so amazing. We are forever thankful.

  • If you are looking for a knowledgeable and super kind wedding Minister to help make you wedding everything it should be, Richard is that person! He facilitated our ceremony with the utmost care and creativity, effortlessly thinking ahead to afford us every detail. What a memorable experience! We had the most memorable ceremony thanks in part to Richard! He came highly recommended by Randy, the wedding planner at the Parker Palm Springs, which we chose for our wedding ceremony and celebration. Such a lovely setting and a beautiful day!

  • Because of Covid we had some concerns about our small wedding but Richard assured us of his flexibility if we needed to reschedule. We communicated via phone and email so that he could get to know our story. Prior to the ceremony he sent an email with What he plan to say and asked us if we wanted to make any changes. The ceremony was just what we wanted. About 15 minutes in length with some personal anecdotes. Both of our families loved it. We highly recommend his services.

    Jim: Thank you for your kind words. The setting at the Chateau Lake La Quinta Inn helped your guests to remain focused, which I greatly appreciated.

  • There are so many wonderful things to say about Richard Cadieux! Mostly is that he is a wholeheartedly good person that wants to make your wedding ceremony as beautiful and meaningful as possible. From the very start, we enjoyed talking with Richard, he just makes you feel like you’re talking to an old friend! He took a lot of time during our initial conversation to learn about who we were as a couple and also to go over important details regarding our marriage license and permitting for our ceremony. Throughout the whole planning process, Richard was very friendly, helpful and easy to communicate with. And then on our special day, he was on time, very professional, and greeted us with a great big smile! Our ceremony was lovelier than I ever could have imagined. Richard’s warm and sincere presence put us completely at ease and his thoughtful words graciously guided us through an emotionally connected ceremony that touched our hearts. We can’t thank Richard enough for helpin... Read more

  • We are forever indebted to Richard and his skill set for making our wedding day so wonderful. He scripted the ceremony so perfectly in our casual setting to surprise some dear friends and family amongst us. We got our wish for close family and friends to share our venue with in a small but charming setting. Richard's light and friendly style was appreciated by all, especially us and we thank Richard again for being the person who married us. When we say he's the best, we mean it. We thank Richard with deepest sincerity from the two of us. Ed and Sandy

  • Richard made everything easy in planning our elopement ceremony, from inquiry to booking to the day of the celebration. He offers an officiant and photographer package which is super practical as he himself organizes everything. He is very responsive to all our questions. His ceremony is intimate and personal and made our day memorable!

  • We really enjoyed working with Richard. If you need a smart, charismatic, knowledgeable officiant for your elopement or micro wedding, Richard is your man! He also helped us get our marriage permit during COVID times when it’s more tricky. Thank you Richard!

  • We hired Reverend Richard to officiate our wedding ceremony in our home. Due to the majority of options being impacted from Covid-19 we thought this to be the safest option. He did an amazing job. It was a warm heartfelt ceremony. The wording and presentation was amazing. He went out of his way to make us feel special and safe at the same time.

    Thanks Ramey: It was great fun interacting with your Skype group, getting into just the right position for the video camera while at the same time maintaining a safe space for all.

  • Rev. Richard was the officiant for our small ceremony at the Dinah Shore Estate in Palm Springs in November 2020. Originally we were going to have one of our family members act as the officiant, but we are so happy we decided to work with Joyful Weddings. Rev. Richard helped us through the entire wedding process (including how to get a marriage license in the middle of a pandemic) and worked with us to create an intimate, personalized ceremony that we will never forget. He was also extremely responsive on text and email to all our little questions, which made the planning super easy and removed a bunch of stress. And maybe most important, Rev. Richard is a genuinely nice, warm, and respectful person and it is very clear from the moment you meet him that he loves being a wedding officiant. I would 100% recommend Rev. Richard to anyone looking for an officiant for their special day.

  • Back in March we had to cancel our wedding due to closures in Hawaii, my husband and I decided to have a tiny backyard wedding in Palm Springs instead. A week before the ceremony the country clerks office shut down due to the pandemic, canceling our appointment to get out marriage license, but Richard helped us obtain a private license just in time! Everything was amazing and I am so happy Richard was willing and available to officiate the ceremony. It was so personal and heartfelt. Could not have asked for a better officiant!

  • Stop looking for another officiant - seriously. Richard is the absolute best and my husband and I couldn't have been happier with him! It began with us finding him online and putting in a request thinking that we wouldn't hear from him for a while seeing how popular he is, but he emailed us almost immediately and asked when would be a good time for him to call so he could tell us a bit about himself, what our visions were, quotes on pricing, so on and so forth. It was me who primarily spoke to him while my husband listened in on the side and let me do my thing. After Richard and I hung up, my husband told me to book him ASAP because he saw how happy, excited, and at ease I was speaking to Richard so I did! He was very communicative throughout the entire process especially with COVID forcing us to change some plans. He sent us a questionnaire to get a better understanding of who we were, emailed us an idea of what he was going to say and made sure we were a part of the entire proces... Read more
