  • Ryan was the most amazing wedding officiant we could have asked for. We had decided early on that we wanted to do pre-marital counseling, and Ryan was happy to do counseling with us. We were wedding planning during COVID and like many couples, our original plans were derailed. Ryan kept us positive and encouraged, lifting us up when it seemed easier to give up on the idea of our dream wedding. Once we were finally back on track with a venue, Ryan was there every step of the way. His officiating was perfect and included so many personal touches that he had learned about us throughout our counseling. We also completed a survey about each other, and he shared the answers for the first time during the ceremony. It was so special. After the ceremony, we had so many guests coming up to us, telling us how much they had loved the ceremony and the officiant. Ryan had impressed all of our guests with his kind words and well thought out passage he shared. I would highly recommend ... Read more

  • A week before our wedding our friend who was going to officiate unfortunately couldn't make it. Ryan was referred to us and truly believe everything happens for a reason. It was meant to be that Ryan married us. It felt like we've already known him for a long time and he made us feel so comfortable when we felt shy and nervous to stand in front of all those people. We got so many compliments from our guests that said he truly captured our love and who we were as a couple. We truly can't thank him enough for making our special day amazing.

  • I cannot tell you the amount of people that came up to us at our wedding to compliment our officiant, Ryan! We knew we loved him after our first meeting with him. You can tell he loves weddings and being a part of people's love stories. My husband, who didn't want to make many wedding decisions, was the one that said we had to have Ryan officiant our wedding. Ryan and I worked together to have our wedding ceremony really reflect my husband and I as a couple. We could not be more pleased with the job he did! Thank you SO much Ryan!!!

  • Ryan is a wonderful person and officiant! I highly recommend him! Due to Covid-19, we had 3 different ceremonies, and we got to know him, he is a great classy guy! He performed all three ceremonies with enthusiasm, sincerity, and love. Our parents couldn't attend the big ceremony due to illness, so we had two smaller ones first, to include them. One was held at my parents assisted living, one was held at my husbands parents front patio, and the bigger/third on a yacht with with family and friends. I could not have asked for a better experience, he was kind, enthusiastic, sincere, and warm. For the third ceremony, it was postponed a couple of times with covid difficulties, and he was very accommodating and flexible. Thank you Ryan for making our 3 ceremonies a wonderful experience for us. We will cherish this for our life time. You are the Best!

  • Ryan did such an amazing job officiating our wedding. He really made the entire ceremony very personal and listened to exactly what we wanted. The questionnaire he had us fill out was such an incredible touch to our ceremony and made it really meaningful to us. The ceremony felt very comfortable and natural and lots of laughs were shared which is exactly what we wanted. He took the time to meet with us via FaceTime the week before the ceremony to finalize everything. He was really thorough, took his time, and went over every detail which made me feel really at ease. He was also always accessible and with Covid, he was accommodative and flexible. He was even available by text and phone after the wedding to help with questions we had to order marriage certificates. We could not have asked for a better officiant. I would highly recommend him!

  • Ryan is hands down the best officiant! In a moment of stress and the unknown of how the night was going to go he gave me peace of mind. The first night of meeting we knew instantly we needed him to marry us. He’s very sweet, patient and detailed. He followed up with us the week before the wedding followed by an email of the complete rundown. He added his own style which made the whole ceremony! he had us answer a questionnaire which i was on the fence about but did it anyways and it was THE BEST! my guests had asked the whole night if he was a personal friend of ours (that’s how personal and sincere he gets) and raved about how great he did! Highly, highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.

  • Ryan is a perfect example of a man who provides superior and unexpected customer service. He made my wedding ceremony beyond special, a fairytale dream that came into a reality. Ryan puts his heart and soul into his work and really connected with all the guests, with myself and now my beautiful wife April.

  • My wife & I were very pleased, grateful and thankful to have Ryan be our wedding officiant. Ryan was very professional, well organized and absolutely a great public speaker. His organization on setting up our wedding vows and questionnaire was very simple but with a lot of compassion. Ryan listens to both couples on what they want and hoping to receive from their wedding vows; Ryan uses your ideas with his experience to work out the best for you. Our reception was very smooth, timed perfectly and of course was fun with a few laughs in between. After our wedding reception was over, we had a lot of family members and a bunch of strangers come up to us to tell us how great of a job Ryan did on marrying us; since we got married at a public space. Ryan is easy to contact and his response time couldn’t be any better; he’s available by phone, text and email. If anyone is looking for a wedding officiant, Ryan is the guy for you; you will not be disappointed.

  • Ryan was exactly the officiant we were looking for: open-minded, professional, reliable, genuine, and kind. We really enjoyed getting to know him prior to the wedding, and we instantly knew that he was the one we wanted to stand beside us as we made our vows to each other. You will read this in all of his reviews, but it’s true: Ryan’s warm, personalized ceremony makes it feel like he has known you forever! I was really nervous in the days leading up to the wedding, so I appreciated that Ryan gave us a call to go over the fine details. While we wanted a secular ceremony, he made sure to include words and blessings that made it poignant and sincere, with a touch of humor that was so us. Thank you, Ryan!
