  • Randy did an amazing job at our wedding ceremony! We chose Randy because he was friendly and easy to talk to! We felt Randy really tried to get to know us throughout the phone calls. He made our ceremony very personal by incorporating our friend's anecdotes and tying it all together into a beautiful ceremony where you got a sense of who we are as people. It was very special and we highly recommend him! :) Everyone commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was! Thank you so much Randy!

  • Randy was a great officiant. We wanted someone who wasn't cheesy and also told our story very well. He did a great job and also took the time to incorporate thoughts from our family and friends. He has a lot of ideas and we decided to go with something very simple, and he was very accommodating. Would recommend him to couples looking for an officiant who is willing to work with them and storytell!

  • Randy did such an amazing job as the officiant of our wedding. He was easy to work with leading up to the wedding and led the most meaningful and thoughtful ceremony we could have asked for. He really took the time to understand us and our community and crafted something that fit our unique personalities. I think it is somewhat rare to get compliments from guests specifically on the ceremony, and we got so much positive feedback on it because of how special it was. Thank you, Randy!

  • Having Randy as our officiant on our special day was the best decision we could have ever made. Not only did he take his time to really get to know who me and my husband were but he made sure the people who meant most were a huge part of our beautiful ceremony. We are so happy we chose him to be such a huge part of our day because he is truly amazing and brings your ceremony all together. We are so thankful for you Randy, thank you!!

  • Randy was exceptionally professional, accommodating, communicative, and helpful. What we loved the most about Randy was how he shaped our ceremony to truly fit our families, heritage, and beliefs. We received a TON of compliments on our ceremony and officiant from our friends and family. If you're looking for an officiant for the most important day of your lives, go with Randy! He'll make your ceremony exactly what you're looking for; whatever that may be.

  • Randy is such a dear! What I loved about Randy is that he put a personal touch to the ceremony. He highlighted us, the couple. He took the time to know us by interviewing us. He even went as far as interviewing a couple of our friends to get a better understanding of our values. Everybody thought the ceremony was very sweet and nice... big thanks to Randy's magic with words. I could not have asked for a better officiant!

  • Randy did an amazing job as our officiant at our wedding ceremony! My husband and I were hesitant about hiring someone that we didn’t know to officiate our wedding but we couldn’t agree on any of our friends or family to ask. I came across randy on weddingwire and I am so glad I did! He does an amazing job and spoke at our ceremony as if he had known my husband and I for years. He speaks to family and friends before hand and incorporates what they have to say into the ceremony so it feels more personalized. Every person at our ceremony said they laughed and cried. The ceremony was the best part about our day and we have Randy to thank for that!!! He is very flexible and will do his best to make the ceremony however you want it. For my husband and I, we didn’t want a traditional religious ceremony and Randy was able to accommodate that for us. Thank you Randy for everything!!!

  • Randy was personable, humorous, sentimental, well spoken, professional, open minded, and everything we didn’t even know we wanted in a officiant. We threw Randy a little bit of a curve ball by moving up our wedding day and giving him only 3 weeks to prepare. That being said, Randy was able to put together a ceremony that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Leading up to the big day, Randy asked for names and phone numbers of some of our closest family and friends so he could talk to them and get some personal stories and insight from the people who know us best. He went above and beyond planning Skype calls to Australia and Italy to connect with some of our loved ones. After he spoke with them our family called us and said how much they enjoyed talking to him- how he made them feel, somehow, even more excited for the wedding! He took their personal anecdotes and tied them into his speech beautifully making it personal and meaningful. Randy also took time to sit and t... Read more

  • Thank you for all the effort you put in creating a memorable ceremony and you did it in Spanish. There were some people that thought you were our friend because you talked a lot about us as if you know us really well as a friend. You did an excellent job and you will always be remembered.

  • ★★★★★ just now Randy just married my husband an I this past Saturday, and we cant be more elated with his professional and personable approach. From day 1 when I made contact with him he was so attentive. I think when trying to decide on an officiant, so many things run thru your mind, or at least they did thru mine. Unless you are using a family friend, Pastor or Deacon, the officiant is not going to know you and your soon to be spouse on a personal level. You wouldn't have known that from the services Randy performed and the script he wrote for us. You would have thought he had known us years. He took the time to personally meet with us, listen to our beginnings, what was important to us, and even took time to talk with friends and family who cloud give him some in sight of who we were to make our ceremony really about us . Our ceremony was not a generic scripted one, but one that he personally tailored to us. He was always very responsive to all my inquiries, and reall... Read more

  • Our daughter had to decide very spontaneously on a person to perform her wedding ceremony. Although Randy was just a “pick” out of the internet we were truly impressed. To prepare for the service he wasn’t too shy to get in touch with as many family members as possible. Even though I was not able to tell any story about our engaged couple right away his guidance and perceptive way to ask questions made it easy for me to contribute. For the wedding ceremony he found the perfect mixture of truth, sensitivity and sympathy when he talked about our couple’s characters and their history. His speech was neither understated nor overdone but genuine. Our daughter is German and as a highlight Randy repeated the main part of the ceremony in German without having been asked for that. This was such a nice personalized gesture and a good example for his efforts to make this occasion so very special for us. I also got the impression that he has known our couple for years already.

  • Randy was fantastic! Although we have only been to a handful of weddings in our lives, we have to say he was by far the best officiant we’ve witnessed. For someone who was a stranger just days before, his level of involvement went far beyond our expectations. Yes, with only 10 days to prepare, Randy took the time to contact various members and friends of our family to get to know the more personal sides of our character and who we are as a couple. He had taken special care to familiarize himself with our values, and learn a little bit about our history as individuals. He went as far as to recite parts of the ceremony in German, Larissa’s mother tongue, and he did quite well! All and all, he lived up to every bit of his end of the deal, and made the day very personal and ever memorable. We were thoroughly impressed, especially by his authenticity and would recommend him to anyone planning to marry!

  • This review is based on my personal experience with Randy. Earlier this year on April 14, 2019 we spoke on the phone regarding his experience as a wedding officiant. From our initial conversation Randy seemed to be an attentive, detailed oriented and proactive wedding officiant ready to service our wedding needs. So after speaking with him for about 30 minutes my then fiancee (now wife) and I decided to hire him because of his "professional demeanor" and Spanish speaking abilities; since we wanted to have our wedding ceremony done in Spanish. Later that week we signed his service agreement and paid him in full ($490). After we paid him on April 26, 2019 we never heard from him... I had to reach out to him via email and phone a month before my wedding. Which was approximately 4 months after we had paid Randy in full. His response to both my phone call and email were unprofessional. Initially when I called him he answered with an irritated and rude tone. I told him it was me "his client"... Read more

    Fernando, I'm very disappointed that you felt you had a such a bad experience. I certainly didn't intend to treat you poorly, but I did sense that there was a misalignment of your expectations from the very beginning. For example, I explained to you that I would reach out to you 1 month before the wedding to do my full process, but about a month and a half out you emailed me, "My wedding is next month and I have not heard from you. What is the next step?" So I responded, "I usually reach out about a month ahead of time. I'm currently working on other weddings, but would be happy to set up a time for us to get together later this month." I guess this felt like a further slight to you, which certainly wasn't intended. My process is fairly intensive, so I like to focus intently on one couple at a time. I didn't mean to neglect you, but I would have given you the same priority over other clients in the lead up to your wedding. When you asked me to issue a refund, I mentioned that I'd refund everything but the deposit, as stated in the contract, and even offered to return the deposit to you if I were able to book another wedding for that date, and I also asked if you wanted to discuss it further. If you didn't think it was fair, we could have talked about it. I'm sorry that we weren't a good fit, but I don't think anything about the way I dealt with you was disingenuous. If you still feel that I've treated you unfairly, please let me know and we can try to figure out how to make it right. Randy

  • Randy was the officiant for our wedding. Honestly, the ceremony was my favorite part of the whole wedding!! We met up for coffee to meet randy and he asked us some very intense questions about our relationship. He also got in contact with my mom and best friend to get to know us more as a couple. He sent me a draft of what our ceremony would look like and he corrected a few things that I wanted changed. Our ceremony truly reflected who were were as a couple and I got so many compliments on our officiant and how full of love our ceremony was. Would completely recommend Randy!! Thanks again Randy!

  • Randy was easy to work with. It was nice that he incorporated our friends and family into our ceremony. He took the time to understand our values and backgrounds. He was also great at accommodating us for a bilingual (Spanish/English) ceremony.
