  • The wedding ceremony Penny wrote for my husband and I was simply beautiful. We'd been to another of Penny's weddings in the past and knew as soon as we got engaged that we wanted her to perform our ceremony. Working with Penny was an absolute breeze - from our initial face-to-face meeting when she asked us all about how we met and what we love about each other so she had material to use in crafting our ceremony, to the countless emails back and forth with tweaks to the drafts. Penny was so flexible and accommodating of all changes and suggestions we had. At our rehearsal and on the day itself, she was a calming presence and did a wonderful job reminding us to slow down and really take in the moment. The ceremony was wonderful and we were so thrilled to have her be a part of our special day.

  • What can I say? Penny made what could have been a crazy day into something so calming and so personal for Ben and I. We got married at a beautiful venue which Penny was familiar with and loved as well. She was able to work with us to change some of the wording of our ceremony around to make it very "us". We had so many of our guests come up to us after the ceremony and say how wonderful Penny was and how personal the ceremony was. Penny went above and beyond to make our special day exactly that, special. Thanks so much, Penny!!

  • We had Penny as our JP for a fall wedding at a campground. Originally we had planned to contact a couple of other JPs in order to weigh our options but the moment that we met with Penny we knew we had found “the one”. She showed such an interest in us as a couple and it was clear that it was important to her that she understand exactly what we wanted in our ceremony. She gave us many different options for readings and ceremony content which made us feel like we were making it ours. Penny was always so easy to communicate with and very responsive. We have heard so many comments from guests about how beautiful the ceremony was and how wonderful the JP was. People truly enjoyed it and because she made it so personal they also felt connected to it. Often times wedding ceremonies can be boring and repetitive. With Penny as your JP this absolutely will not be the case! We’ll continue to recommend her to anyone in need of a JP.

  • Penny Richards was our J.P. for our recent wedding. From the get-go, Penny was great to work with. She really got a feel for who my husband and I are as a couple, and wrote a beautiful ceremony/vows for us. You could tell Penny truly cared about her work and wanted to make everything perfect, which it was! After the wedding we had several people tell us how great of a job she did and I couldn’t agree more. I highly recommend Penny if you are looking for a J.P. for your wedding!!

  • Let me just say...having Penny Richards as my officiant was the best decision I made throughout this whole wedding process. She is extremely professional, friendly and completely focused on making your day the best possible. I found her in one of my many searches online and we met for breakfast at a local cafe. She was on time (early in fact) and very prepared. She immediately wanted to know our story because she incorporates that into the ceremony. She was so flexible (my husband didn't finish writing his vows until the day of) but she had them printed and read to go at the ceremony. There are some people that you meet and they just make you smile because you know that they genuinely care and Penny is definitely one of those people. At the rehearsal, her and her husband, Dave, helped us get organized so the wedding ran smoothly. She was a delight to have included in the wedding. And compared to the other options, the value for the services you get were amazing. Her husband basically a... Read more

  • My husband and I could not think of anyone else that we would have wanted to officiate our wedding. During our first meeting with Penny, we knew that she would make our wedding ceremony exactly what we wanted. She was very flexible and had some excellent suggestions that made our mothers feel part of the ceremony. Penny stressed that our wedding is exactly that - OUR wedding. During the ceremony, Penny had our guests (and us!) laughing and crying at the same time. The ceremony was beautiful, personal, and suited us perfectly. Everyone could tell that she put a lot of time and effort into the ceremony, that it was tailored for us. She presented us with a written copy of the ceremony to that we can look back at it over the course of our lives - that meant a lot to both my husband and I. Penny was very professional during the whole process, from our first meeting until she pronounced us man and wife. Looking back, I would not have changed anything and I recommend Penny to...

    Thank you, Anonymous! I wish I knew who wrote these kind words so I could say a proper "thank you". It is truly an honor to be part of a wedding.
