  • Richard was absolutely wonderful from start to finish! From the first time we met him, he was warm and so so sweet. Its funny because after our ceremony was over, multiple people asked us if he was a family friend because it was so natural and it seemed like he knew us forever! He made an effort to get to know my husband and I, and really cared about us as individuals. He worked with us to write the perfect ceremony, and was open to anything we threw his way! What bothered me about some other officiants was that they would try to make the ceremony about themselves and turn it into a standup routine. Richard let our story shine through and really made it all about us. If you're looking for someone to give a genuine, heartfelt ceremony, Richard is your guy!!

    XOXO to both! After all the rain the morning of your wedding, the sun broke through for us at the last minute and everything turned out as you had planned. The canyon of bell ringers that we all formed as you left the ceremony area was truly quite unique - I'm sure the video of it was fun to watch and relive the excitement. My bell is in my pen/pencil holder - I'm looking at it right now with a smile on my face. :)

  • Look no further for your wedding officiant - Richard Cash is the best of the best! My husband and I found Richard on The Knot - we emailed him and expressed our interest and he responded very quickly. He set up a place for us to meet mid-way between our house and his which was extremely convenient. Richard was genuinely interested in getting to know us as a couple and what we wanted in our ceremony. By the end of our meeting we were ready to book him. Throughout the entire planning process, Richard responded promptly to questions we had regarding the license process. He broke down the directions for us and made it so easy. He provided us with the addresses, phone numbers, and everything we would need to secure a license. He even sent us emails to remind us! Richard also emailed back and forth to make sure the ceremony outline was perfect. Not only did he use information he gathered from our meeting, but he did his own research on our Knot Wedding Website. When the big day a... Read more

    Reading your review brought back the afternoon in vivid detail - thanks for posting it. Your ceremony was so much fun and I'm not surprised that guests were intrigued by the Love Locks ceremony with your parents. I always appreciate when couple's come up with an idea that stamps their ceremony as unique and memorable.

  • My husband and I reached out to Mr. Richard Cash approximately three weeks before our wedding date. It was an unplanned, last minute, small family wedding in a park near where we live. Richard responded to my email the next day saying he was available and willing to work with whatever we threw at him. On top of him being so responsive to all of our emails and questions he explained everything we had to do step by step and his service is amazing. Such a nice personality and takes this job very seriously. He includes everything you want him to say and makes sure everything is done the way the bride and groom want. My husband and I are more than happy to say that he is the reason our day turned out so special. Mr. Richard Cash is highly recommended by us and we will be using him in a few years for our bigger ceremony. Kirsten and Dominick Ciano

  • Richard was wonderful! He was so efficient in planning our ceremony. He checked on us throughout the months to make sure we were okay in the planning process. I was a nervous wreck prior to the ceremony and Richard said just the right things to calm me down. We HIGHLY recommend!!

    Elana, you may have been nervous but you and Jason still nailed your personal vows to each other. I still laugh when I think about your son picking up the rose petals throughout the ceremony - a great way to keep a 2-year old occupied. Thanks for posting your review.

  • We feel so lucky to have found Richard Cash to be our officiant for our MDW wedding at Rutherfurd Hall. He is a preferred vendor at David’s Country Inn and upon going to his website and viewing the various types of ceremonies he constructs and listening to his speaking voice, we knew he was the right guy to marry us! Throughout the entire wedding planning process, Richard did an excellent job checking in with us and helping us create a truly custom wedding ceremony, which is something we deeply appreciate. All along he encouraged us to write personal vows which we did and in addition to the beautiful words Richard spoke about marriage, it made our ceremony very personal and touching. Richard also did a great job making us feel comfortable when we arrived explaining how we’d walk out and where we would stand, we didn’t do a rehearsal and with his guidance, we really didn’t need to! Additionally, we not only received many compliments about the wording of the ceremony itself but a... Read more

    Alison & Rich, It was about as close to a perfect afternoon as we could have hoped for, especially when the sun was behind the clouds. You're right about your personal vows making the ceremony even more personal and touching - I'm sure your guests enjoyed hearing your promises to each other. Hugs to both for much happiness.

  • Richard was beyond incredible. He was so accommodating and made my wife and I so comfortable during the whole process, from planning the wedding ceremony to applying for the wedding license. He made us feel so calm on the big day even when we were nervous. Richard added something so positive to our wedding and we could not imagine our big day without him. Thank you for everything Richard!

    Hey Matt and Christie, Thanks for the great review. I was so happy (and relieved) that your ceremony came off with no glitches considering we had so many moving pieces - Stefana, breaking the glass, the Kiddush blessing, etc. But, everyone knew what had to be done and when to do it, so our team effort pulled off a home run!

  • Our experience with Richard was perfect! He is a skilled officiant who has done many weddings. He knows exactly what he is doing. We had not known Richard before finding him on Wedding Wire, but he really took the time to get to know us. Richard offered numerous examples of ceremonies and helped us create a personalized, fun ceremony. On the day of the ceremony, his delivery was perfect. Everyone loved him! He was also super helpful with questions about the marriage license paperwork!

    I loved how everyone was having so much fun during your ceremony. You have to admit, it was very funny when I was telling everyone how you and Jesse went on many double dates, just not with each other! XO

  • Richard married my husband and I on 10/13/18- we had a very small ceremony with the intention of it being very intimate. From day 1 Richard was incredibly thoughtful, helpful, professional and delivered a beautiful ceremony. Never asked for a review... highly highly recommend him. Thank you!!!

    Michele & John, Thanks for posting your sweet review and for bringing back such fond memories of your October wedding - truly one of the most intimate ceremonies I've been part of in a long time. XO, Richard

  • Richard was the best! He was the first person we contacted for an officiant after watching him at another wedding we attended. He made sure we had everything for our marriage license and had all the info on how to do so. He created the best ceremony and incorporated so many things that were important to us as well as lighting the mood during the ceremony so we were a little more relaxed. He was such an amazing part of our special day and were so glad he was our officiant!

  • Richard was the perfect officiant for our wedding and we could not possibly thank him enough! We were looking for a very open-minded and non-religious officiant for our ceremony who would make a romantic ceremony focused on the two of us as a couple. Having been to many weddings, we were weary of the over-the-top officiants who make wedding ceremonies too informal for our taste. When we met with Richard and explained the type of theme and feeling we were going for, he immediately understood and provided us great examples of readings and ceremony outlines to help us customize something that would work best for us. He was extremely prompt, responsive, detail oriented, and overall SO helpful in preparing for our ceremony, and on our wedding day, he officiated the ceremony of our dreams for us. We had so many guests tell us that our ceremony was the most touching one they have seen. Richard is a true professional with a fun personality who will make you feel comfortable and is someone who ... Read more

  • From the first moment I met with Reverend Cash, I knew that he would be the perfect fit for the wedding, he was so personable, friendly, and knowledgeable. Although we canceled our wedding 3 weeks before the date, up until that point Reverend Richard Cash was right there to help us along the way. From our meeting last July, where he handed me two copies of the contract, information about applying for, picking up, and filing a Marriage License. (When we did apply for a license the clerk was so impressed that I knew the details, to which I showed her Reverend Cash's paper). After we sent him our signed contract, we got to work on the details of the ceremony, and no detail was too small! My Mother, Maid of Honor, and I had a few word changes, which were no problem for the Reverend. Had we not called off the wedding, I'm sure that he would have done an amazing job!

  • Richard is the absolute best. My wife and I live in MD, but got married in NJ. We met with him once in person, and multiple times via FaceTime or Skype. He was responsive, attentive, always available, and always willing to work with our schedules. We did a majority of the communicating the last 3-4 months leading up to the wedding and my wife and I, and our parents constantly made tweaks to the ceremony, and Richard could not have handled the constant changes with more grace or patience lol. He’s the absolute best. On the actual day of we had countless guests comment on what a fine job Richard had done. Everyone was pleased and so were we. He also took care of filing the marriage application and held our hands through the entire application and approval process for that as well. If he’s available for your big day, book him immediately!

    Hey Matt, I'm not someone that generally blushes, but your super kind review made my cheeks warm. I had such a great time marrying you and Melissa. Your families and bridal party were all very warm and welcoming, which helps me. As you saw when I almost hit Melissa with the mic, I also do get nervous because I always want to hit a home run - I did with the two of you!!

  • Richard was a pleasure to have as our ceremony officiant. We first met with him near our home and spent almost two hours chatting and getting to know each other a year prior to our wedding. He was readily available for any questions and last minute tweaks to our ceremony. He provided lots of guidance as far as how to structure the ceremony which was very helpful. The ceremony itself was beautiful and also lighthearted with a few jokes - exactly what we wanted. We both thought we would be nervous standing in front of everyone during the ceremony but Richard's demeanor and delivery helped us to enjoy every second of it. Thank you!!

    Thanks for the review Rachel. Your ceremony was so much fun. I think your personal vows to each other were definitely a highlight and the Love Letter and Wine Box Ceremony was something that many people had never seen. Your guests were definitely excited about you and Devan getting married. XO
