  • We received the following services from Randy: 3 counseling sessions, rehearsal, and ceremony officiant. We definitely think that getting to know Randy prior to the ceremony made having him officiate our wedding even more special. We actually never met Randy in person until rehearsal as my husband and I are long-distance and out of town, but all our counseling sessions were done via Facetime with much ease. We immediately felt very comfortable being open and vulnerable with Randy and he listened to both me and my now husband and gave great advice to strengthen our relationship. With regards to the ceremony, Randy has an awesome, extremely thorough collection of ceremony resources, including readings and different ceremony options for both religious and non-religious ceremonies and different ceremony rituals. His resources were extremely comprehensive and well-thought out and made creating our ceremony script so smooth and easy. The week of our ceremony, Randy touched based with us vi... Read more

  • Randy was such an amazing part of our day!!! He performed the most beautiful ceremony for us and we had so many people tell us afterwards it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. When we first met with Randy we chatted for about 2 hours going over any and all details we would need to know for our ceremony and what working with him would be like. He was incredibly thorough and after reading us a portion of his ceremony, we knew he was perfect for us! Randy was incredibly easy to work with constantly taking any edits, ideas or changes we made to our ceremony script quickly and efficiently. Randy really took the time to get to know us and make sure that we both were comfortable with how the ceremony would proceed and gave us great advice. I would highly recommend hiring Randy!!! As I said before, our ceremony was perfect and so many guests loved it. We couldn’t imagine our day without him!!

  • First, we would like to say that Randy saved us from being totally overwhelmed by the process of finding an officiant. At our first meeting, he was more than prepared and his years of experience made us feel at ease. We knew right away he was exactly who we needed. Randy assisted us in executing the ceremony we wanted and gave us the freedom to include our own personal details while guiding us every step of the way. He is very open to your feedback and will help mold your ideas into the ceremony of your dreams. He was always available and easy to reach, which put us at ease. His experience helped us get over our nerves and accomplish our ideal ceremony. Our guests could not stop raving about him and we cannot thank him enough for helping us on our big day. We cannot recommend him enough.

  • Randy was professional and knowledgeable from the very start. We had no idea what planning our ceremony would entail and he made everything simple, yet personal. We initially met for a little over an hour and he made us feel at ease with the entire process. We were given a few different ceremony options that were able to be modified even more so. He helped coordinate our singer and was helpful in that we had a sign language interpreter as well, and was instrumental in helping to organize placement of each of these. Randy is very professional but also very personable and clearly has ample experience officiating weddings. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant for our big day.

  • Choosing a wedding officiant proved to be harder than we anticipated. Without a friend or family member willing or capable of serving in this capacity, we were hesitant about choosing just a anyone online to officiate a very important day in our lives. After reading reviews, we decided to meet with Randy. AND I'M SO GLAD WE DID! Randy was exactly what we needed. He was so very helpful in helping us to choose a ceremony that was unique and meaningful to us and guided us through the process. He offered great insight for the flow of the ceremony and provided wonderful material for us to choose from. He made it so EASY for us. On top of that, he was a fantastic speaker and was perfect at our ceremony. He even braved a bit of a chill for us to have our ceremony outside in mid November! We can't say enough good things about him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an wedding officiant!

  • If you’re looking for a detail oriented officiant to bring your wedding ceremony to life, then Randy is your guy! From the start, Randy was prompt in his responses to my inquiries and met me and my (now) husband for a lengthy discussion on exactly what we wanted for our wedding and what services he offers. He invests so much time in you even before signing the contract, which was amazing for us because I was nervous about how the little details would be coordinated for the ceremony. He walked us through each detail in that initial meeting. Randy even provided a host of scripts, readings, and rituals for us to use as a guide and pick from to customize our ceremony. He truly made our wedding so special and smooth!

  • The moment we met Randy, we knew he was the right fit for us. He made everything very simple and enjoyable. Not only did he make us feel comfortable, but everyone that was there at our wedding feel that way too. I can’t say enough good things about Randy and his services and I hope we can use him again in the future! Thank you for everything!

  • Randy was absolutely wonderful for our October 2018 wedding. We initially emailed him from his website and he immediately responded asking to meet in person or via Skype. We met at a Panera and talked for 2 hours - he was genuinely interested in us as a couple which is what we were looking for. He sent us 3 ceremony templates (that are flexible) and countless resources and rituals for us to look at. Us and Randy exchanged several emails until we finalized the ceremony. We also did a "Test Drive" pre-marital session with Randy and thoroughly enjoyed it. Randy came to our house for it. Three days before our wedding we had a phone call and went over the ceremony and logistics again. Randy attended the rehearsal practice which was great and he was fantastic on the wedding day. Randy was always so professional and a wonderful person to work with. To our surprise the ceremony was actually fun and we contribute that to how comfortable Randy made us feel. He also handled sending our marria... Read more

  • Randy was outstanding! He is such a genuinely kind person and his warm personality comes off the second you speak with him. We booked him about 6 months before our wedding and he was very good about checking in from time to time to make sure we needed anything. Our ceremony was very simple, but he pays so much attention to detail and explains things perfectly, so there was never a doubt in our minds the ceremony wouldn't go off without a hitch. Because of Randy, our ceremony was absolutely beautiful!!

  • Randy was fantastic to work with! He was prompt, professional and very knowledgeable. He gave us several templates to inspire our ceremony, but he also provided flexibility for us to customize everything exactly as we wanted. Randy leaned on his years of experience to provide us with useful advice. He reminded us of every detail along the way, from getting our wedding license to ensuring that our speakers had copies of their readings. His delivery was charismatic, energetic, poised and articulate.

  • We met with Randy, got a great first impression of and decided to book with him. Unfortunately, our view of him and his services declined after everything was said and done. Randy is responsive and kind. However, he did not successfully execute the ceremony as we had hoped and planned for. We spoke with Randy a couple days before our wedding day to walk through the script. We had mentioned to him numerous times about the language that had to be used when my grandfather, who does not speak English, would give me away at the altar. He used the wrong language during the walk through so we made sure he was aware of the change for the big day. Jim and I were completely shocked during our ceremony. This a moment were you should be soaking in all the love and excitement. Of course we had those moments but we also gave each other the "what is he doing" look during the ceremony. Jim and I wanted to have a sweet, but short ceremony and we made that very clear from the very beginning and ... Read more

    Hi Bora, After reading your review, I was stunned and disappointed that your experience did not meet and exceed your expectations, as has been the case with brides and grooms I have worked with for over 40 years. As a grandfather myself, it would be my honor to walk my granddaughter down the aisle, so to learn your grandfather was embarrassed was upsetting. I'm sorry your experience was not as you had envisioned.
