  • Rich is the BEST wedding officiant out there! He is creative, thoughtful, and hilarious, and helped us create a perfectly individualized wedding ceremony. We have received so many comments from wedding guests about how meaningful and unique they found the ceremony. Thank you, Rich!

  • From the moment we met Rich we knew he was the right person to marry us. Neither my husband nor I are particularly religious, but we were at a loss about how to construct a meaningful ceremony outside of a church. Rich immediately soothed all of our worries and worked with us to create a ceremony that was personal, loving, and sincere. Rich provides you with a step by step process to customize your ceremony in a way that feels fun and manageable. He is open to making it as religious or secular as you want with no judgement. He was extremely patient and supportive as we worked through rounds of revisions. The day before the wedding he ran a rehearsal that was organized and that made our out of town friends and family feel included and well prepared. I cannot imagine having gotten married without Rich and I would recommend him to any couple looking to build a unique and personalized experience.

  • From the first time we met Rich, we knew he would be perfect for the job, not only because of his experience, but also because his beaming personality let us know that he truly enjoys his job. He worked with our budget, which was a big plus for us. Throughout putting together our sermon, he was always very considerate of our wishes for what we wanted for our ceremony, like how religious (or not) we wanted it to sound, and the kind of sermonette he delivered. Correspondence was always quick and reliable. And something that is very unique to his services is his "pastor humor" section, where he gave my husband and I questions to answer (secretly) about one another. At the ceremony, he read our answers about each other, and it really made everything so personal and even more special. All of our guests loved that section. Rich, was great to work with and I definitely recommend him to my friends, and anyone looking for a great pastor. Thanks, Rich!

  • Rich was an absolutely amazing officiant. We were looking for someone who would marry us with humor, class, strength, and spirituality, and he completely exceeded our expectations. He worked with us to write a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony...our guests said it was the most romantic and magical wedding they had ever attended. He led us on a very special journey, and understood our love for each other and what's important about getting married. We couldn't be happier! We really felt like he was a friend, and were happy to ply him with food, drinks, and many chocolates that night. Thank you, Rich!

  • We booked Rich Sclafani to be our Officiate in January, and got married in December. During the year, he was extremely helpful to us. We live in England and wanted to get married in Washington. We kept in contact with Rich over e-mail and he was so responsive to us, we felt we really got to know him before the big day. Rich took a very long car journey to get to our wedding venue. When he arrived, he was cheerful and upbeat. We couldn't have asked for a better ceremony. We had an unforgettable wedding and Rich paid a huge part in that. We strongly recommend him.

  • Rich Sclafani is a great wedding pastor. He has a fun way of personalizing the ceremony that allowed our guests to learn more about my husbands and my relationship. He really takes the time to get to know the bride and groom, and to make sure the ceremony is a reflection of them, which really allows each ceremony to be unique. He also does a great job choosing readings, and we received many compliments on the ceremony.

  • I'm writing as the father of the groom. Rich did a superb job for my son and now daughter-in-law. He is very conscientious about the details and provided good, practical advice for the couple. He has a engaging personality and great sense of humor. Highly recommended.

  • Rich Sclafani helped write the most heartfelt, personal, and inspiring wedding vows and ceremony speech for my wedding this past summer. I could not speak more highly of him. He is amazing and I recommend him to all the brides I know. He truly knows how to make a wedding ceremony special and so very memorable. Thanks Rich! Lisa R. Seattle, Wa

  • Rich's unique approach to the ceremony exceeded our. His words, demeanor and expertise suited our wedding style so well we couldn’t have found a better person to share such a special day with, we feel lucky that Rich was able to perform our ceremony for us. We received so many comments on how great he was at the wedding and that so many people were touched by what he had said during the ceremony.

  • Rich is awesome! It was an easy decision to have him be our wedding officiant. My husband and I come from conservative, religious families, and we struggled with how to honor that while also remaining true to ourselves and our beliefs together. Rich effortlessly helped us navigate this situation and crafted us an amazing ceremony that made our parents happy but was also totally us! Many of our family and friends remarked that our ceremony was a pleasure to sit through because it was sincere, not stuffy (none of that religious guilt!), personalized, and funny! He is also cool under pressure - a train interrupted our wedding ceremony but he kept the mood light and kept my husband and I calm about the whole thing. We took advantage of Rich's pre-marital counseling services as well, and had a great experience opening up to him. It was a little difficult to get a hold of Rich at first, but know that he is the lead pastor of a large church and is keeping watch over a large flock! I was fin... Read more

  • Rich has a personal way of making the ceremony significant, respectful, intimate; and yet he can lighten it with his tasteful sense of humor. He really does an excellent job of organizing and making sure the ceremony is significant and what the bride and groom want. Our only difficulty was he is very busy and we had to wait to hear back from him occasionally. A stellar officiant, you will be lucky to get him for your wedding.
