  • We had a great experience working with Pastor Rich! He was responsive, warm, and did a great job expressing our love during our wedding ceremony. We met Pastor Rich about a month before our wedding for a consultation and to discuss the specifics of our ceremony, and he took everything to heart and delivered it flawless during our ceremony. Everyone had wonderful things to say about Pastor Rich and our parents were especially happy with him! I would definitely recommend working with Pastor Rich for your wedding!

  • My husband and I got married on 9/5/2020 and Pastor Rich was our officiant. We are so happy to have chosen him for our ceremony - he has such a great style and is a joy to be around. We clicked with him from our very first phone conversation and really appreciated his approach to everything. He is very organized, transparent, timely, takes detailed notes and is incredibly positive. When COVID hit, he helped us stay calm and was able to adjust as needed to ensure our big day went off without a hitch! Our families loved him and everyone was thrilled with the ceremony! Thank you Pastor Rich for playing such an important part in our big day!

  • Pastor Rich was absolutely wonderful. Several of our friends and family asked us if we've known him our whole life, but in reality we only hired him a short WEEK before our wedding - that's how personal and kind he was. We planned for a church ceremony for a year and a half but then only a week before our wedding date we had to change plans because of Covid-19. We scrambled to find an officiant for our now outdoor ceremony and thankfully we found Pastor Rich. He provided the BEST service and a great price. I loved that he made sure the ceremony wasn't TOO lengthy but also didn't feel rushed. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much for being there for us on such short notice and making our ceremony beautiful!

  • My husband and I got married July 2020 (right in the middle of COVID-19). Pastor Rich was so flexible as we changed our wedding date a few times. The rehearsal was extremely organized and put my mind at ease. He made it so there was nothing to worry about on our special day. Pastor Rich officiated our ceremony so well it was as though he had known us forever. There is a reason he asks so many questions during your initial meeting! Our wedding was light hearted, sweet, emotional, and funny. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you, Pastor Rich!

  • Pastor Rich was wonderful! We had to postpone our wedding due to COVID but decided to still get married with immediate family in the meantime and Pastor Rich officiated our small ceremony. He made the ceremony extremely special and was incredibly accommodating and easy to work with. We would highly recommend working with him!

  • Pastor Rich was amazing. All our guests in our multi cultural wedding agreed that his ceremony was the highlight of the event. He was relaxed, kept a steady pace, was humble and confident. He explained everything carefully so the entire group was following on the significance of the various sections of the wedding. Before before and after the wedding, Pastor Rich was within reach and prepared really well for us. He listened to us carefully and respected all our wishes.

  • Out of all the Pastors out there, my wife and I really believe that we made the right choice. Upon meeting him for the first time he greeted us with a warm hug and treats you like family. He's kind and very attentive to details when explaining what we wanted exactly for the wedding. Our wedding day came out so perfectly with Pastor Rich and he was early to our venue so as to not be late. We highly recommend Pastor Rich to anyone out there looking for a good officiant. Our wedding was non-denominational since my wife is Muslim and I'm Catholic. He chose the best of both of our sides and put on one great ceremony we will never forget :)

  • Pastor Rich was the best decision we had made in the entire wedding planning process. We met him one time, and it felt as if we had known him forever. He delivered the most touching and beautiful ceremony that had exceeded our every expectation. It truly felt as if we were speaking our hearts through the ceremony! He personalized it around my husband’s and my different religious beliefs, and highlighted who we are as people. Our families and guests are still commenting on how it was the most beautiful and intimate ceremony they had ever seen (as are we!). He was genuine, warm, and so very calming through the entire process. Pastor Rich- we are forever grateful for you making this our most favorite and special day of our lives!

  • Pastor Rich did an amazing job with our wedding! He had a tall order of combining multiple belief systems and he absolutely delivered. He was able to make all of our guests feel included, and you would have thought he had known us for years! He went above and beyond our expectations by adding an anecdote about my grandparents, who he had only met the day prior. After the ceremony, my grandma came up to me with tears in her eyes…it meant the world to her that Rich had included them in his sermon. Thank you so much to Rich for creating that special moment we’ll be able to carry with us for a lifetime.

  • You never know what you'll get when just using reviews to hire a professional, let alone your wedding officiant. After some serious due diligence we selected Pastor Rich. Wow, is all I have to say!! Pastor Rich was responsive, engaging, supportive, helpful, and encouraging. After a meeting, a few phone calls, emails and even text messages we were all set and as ready as we were going to be. Pastor Rich married us on August 16, 2019 and gave us a ceremony we will always remember! He brought laughter, sincerity, spirituality and beautifully personalized simplicity to our intimate backyard wedding! We are Team Pastor Rich! If you are looking for everything in one officiant, have Pastor Rich as your officiant. You will very happy you did! We sure are!

  • Pastor Rich far exceeded our expectations! We met a few times before our ceremony and he was so easy to communicate with. He captured our love with the perfect balance of humor and sentimentality. We received numerous compliments from family and friends that it was the best ceremony they had ever been to—all thanks to Pastor Rich! He is a wonderful person and will cater to your ideas. He even researched and included several Harry Potter quotes because my husband and I are such big fans! It was so special and unique. We highly highly recommend him!

  • Pastor Rich was the officiant at our wedding and he did a wonderful job. We discovered him through our wedding planner who recommended him. He met with us before the wedding to get to know us and learn about our relationship and give our ceremony a personal touch. He did a great job at the ceremony as well as through the rehearsal and has the kind of personality that puts everyone around him at ease. We would definitely recommend him if you’re looking for an officiant for your wedding! Thank you again Pastor Rich!
