  • 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 gifted us the most beautiful, personal ceremony we could have asked for. When meeting him (virtually) for the first time, we were instantly appealed by his personality and how likable he was. By the end of our initial conversation, we became so comfortable with him, it felt like we were asking one of our friends to marry us! There was no question on who we wanted to be our officiant, and he did not fail to deliver. The ceremony was perfect in every way. He customized it to us, working in our answers to a questionnaire he had us do prior to the ceremony (bonus points: I didn't provide him my answers until the morning of the ceremony and it still didn't faze him--although I don't recommend doing that!) During the reception, we received so many praises of Ryan that we've lost count. Our guests loved how he created the ceremony, with many of them stating they'd never seen anything like it and they loved how engaging it was, adding that his personal touches made them laugh and cry...

  • Working with Ryan was like working with a best friend. Not only was he super informative, helpful and friendly in the beginning before we asked if he’d be our officiant but he also spent a lot of time getting to know us over the phone/FaceTime/texting afterwards. When he officiated our ceremony everyone was convinced he had been a friend of ours for years. Not only was the ceremony unique but also very personalized. He gave us the tools to help him get to know us and build the perfect ceremony. My husband and I had a smaller, more intimate, ceremony this year and immediately re-booked Ryan to be at our next ceremony in a year.

  • Ryan, Thank you for being a part of our day. From our counseling sessions down to our wedding day, you were an absolute joy to work with. You listened to our needs and wants when it came to our ceremony and made it about us as a couple which is how we wanted it. We had so many family and friends compliment you and how amazing you were. Thank you for being so amazing and such a joy to us!

  • Ryan was everything we envisioned in an officiant. He was professional, timely in responding, kind, and able to personalize our ceremony. He was very thorough in communicating with us through text, email, phone calls, and even FaceTime. He even attended our rehearsal the evening before our wedding for a run through of what would be said throughout our ceremony. We feel that Ryan went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met, all of our questions were answered, and he even offered additional guidance with the paperwork side of our marriage. I am so grateful that our ceremony went so smoothly and just felt natural to us! It wasn’t too religious for us, and it included personalized statements about our love for one another. Hands down, exactly what we were looking for! Thank you Ryan!

  • There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing Ryan was throughout the entire process. We instantly felt comfortable after our first meeting. He guided us through the process and made sure everything was taken care of through the end. Due to unforeseen circumstances, he was more than willing to join us despite changing our venue location. Everyone at our ceremony raves about how amazing our ceremony was. From the bottom of our hearts, there isn’t a better officiant out there!

  • Ryan really took the time to make sure he got a good feel for who we are as a couple so he could truly cater to us for our ceremony. He made our ceremony feel so special and spoke so eloquently. Our photographer and venue coordinators were equally as blown away by how great he was. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for the services he provides.

  • Ryan was the most perfect officiant we could have asked for. He is so easy to talk to and really puts effort into making your ceremony feel the way you want it to feel. He was kind and relaxed, but led us through what we needed to do with ease. The way he constructs the ceremony is truly incredible. Throughout the entire night at our reception everyone was asking me about Ryan and where we found him and we received so many compliments. I 100% recommend Ryan for your wedding. He truly cares and will give you the ceremony of your dreams. Thank you so much Ryan and your sweet for everything, we couldn't have done this with out you!

  • Valerie and Ryan were both great! We traveled half way across the country to get married. They were both warm and it felt like I knew them. They really went above and beyond. They made it very special for us. Valerie let me decide on different props for pics which was great and already sent me a few, we just got married on 4/3/21! Very happy with my decision to go with Wedding Royale.

  • We hired Ryan for our wedding on 5/8/21! Let’s just say he was overall amazing! He was very responsive with any questions we had and made the process very easy. The ceremony was unique and we were able to make it personal unlike other officiants we looked into who use a standard script. I highly recommend him!

  • We could not have a picked a better officiant. Ryan was absolutely amazing! He made our ceremony special with his personal touches that no other officiant offered. We loved how his energy was and he was so thoughtful, caring, and very open minded to our family tradition. On the special day he showed and told our love story better than us, I think he would always remember us as the couple who loves to dance because that’s what my and my husband love story was and he did a good job telling it. Ryan did a very good job representing us and marring us . He was available to answer all our marriage licenses questions and even helped processing it . After the wedding I got so many compliments about him and how he made our ceremony beautiful and i agreed. I am happy we picked Ryan and I would highly recommend talking to him and seeing if he is a fit for you. It will not be a waste of time . I promise (:

  • My husband and I were looking to skip the COVID drama and elope. I was worried that we wouldn't have time to get personal enough with our officiant that we’d have to compromise on religious tradition and other things that were important to us. We hired Ryan a week before our elopement and while leading us in our vows it felt as if we’d known him for a long time. He made the witnesses, our moms, feel included! We were able to get married wherever we wanted. We showed up on the beach and Ryan trucked wherever we asked until we found a picturesque spot. We couldnt have asked for a more perfect and professional person to marry us. Our family and friends that watched our videos keep asking for his number for their own wedding and elopements. You cannot go wrong with him.

  • We could not have a picked a better officiant. Ryan was absolutely amazing!!! He made our ceremony that much more special with his personal touches that no other officiant offered. My favorite part was how he made us answer 5 questions each About our relationship and he read our answers out loud to everyone. It was such a sweet way for all of our guests to kind of see into our lives as a couple. After the wedding we had so many people tell us how much they liked him and how beautiful and intimate the ceremony was. We literally can't thank him enough for making our special day, amazing. Ryan you are the best!!
