  • Ryan is awesome! We love how personal and unique he makes your day feel. He is easy to talk to and fun to be around. With the questions he asked us, not only made your day personalized and special, but was awesome to hear the answers for the first time along with your family and friends. Ryan does a great job including your family and friends too, which we loved! I would definitely recommend him!

  • Ryan is THE BEST. If you are looking for officiant, look no further. You will not regret this decision. When looking for an officiant it is difficult because you want that personal connection and for the ceremony to be engaging, well let me tell you Ryan will meet that expectation & MORE. My husband and I many great compliments about Ryan. We loved his presentation, energy, word choices, and especially how comfortable he made us feel. He is very genuine & professional. He lead a questionnaire into the vows, which I do not see happen a lot & we & the guest loved that. He knows how to make the ceremony personably & fun. I am thankful he was there standing by us on our memorable day. Again, you will not regret your decision when booking with Ryan. ✨

  • Ryan Smithson of Weddings Royale was an exceptional officiant for our intimate wedding. He really made very many personal touches including having my fiance and myself fill out a 5 questionnaire about each other each other which was not shared with us until our ceremony. It made the ceremony both fun and very personal. He also had asked us questions about different verses we might want to use and he tied it into our nautical theme perfectly. I am sure he could do the same for any theme. Seriously, we could not have been happier with our selection in a minister.

  • Ryan was extremely personable. He made our ceremony a wonderful memory. He worked with me on secretly planning a duet to sing while walking down the isle and I felt so comfortable, as if planning a simple duet with a friend. It came out perfect! Everything we spoke about was non stressful and very down to earth. We are already planning on having Ryan do our live music for birthdays and parties in the near future!

  • My fiance' and I were doing a destination wedding and we were so nervous about picking someone that we had never met. We skyped Ryan and immediately knew he was the perfect person to marry us. He walked us through the entire ceremony and gave us all kinds of ideas about how we could do it. He helped us design a ceremony that worked for us as a couple and made us feel so comfortable with the entire process. Ryan talked us into writing down some answers to 5 questions that he asked us about each other. He told us not to share our answers and that he would read it during the ceremony. This ended up being the most important part of our wedding and I'm so thankful he encouraged us to do this. Almost everyone at the wedding was crying while he read these and so many people told us how wonderful it was that we were able to share our story like that. Ryan is flexible and accommodating and has great ideas and an awesome personality. We highly recommend him as an officiant.

  • Ryan made the entire process very simple for us. Took the time to get to know us ...a few emails back-and-forth and he took it from there. Very good guy that obviously takes pride in what he does. Arrived early😁...Multiple guests commented on what a fine job he did. Honestly you’re blowing it if you go with anyone else. Awesome!

  • My wife and I were married by Ryan in October’19. He is very good at what he does, and looking back, there is nobody we would’ve rather had as our officiant. He offered a worry free experience. During the wedding, it really hit me how good of hands we were in. He is smooth ,tasteful, can customize the amount of religious content, and adds the perfect twist of humor. Do yourself a favor and go with Ryan.

  • Ryan did an amazing job officiating our Electra Cruise line wedding. He was so personable and engaged in the wedding that many of the guests assumed he was a family friend instead of someone we just met. He provided a beautiful template for the ceremony and we were able to add several personal touches. We highly recommend Ryan.

  • Ryan was the best wedding shaman we could have asked for. I guess the official name is wedding officiator, but shaman sounded cooler and he let us call him that. He even signed our book as "the shaman." He did everything to accommodate our requests and make the ceremony comfortable and fun for everybody. He even said "wilsoooooooon!!" (Castaway) as requested, and it was awesome. We really enjoyed his take on our relationship and the way that he presented us at our ceremony. His family is also wonderful, we highly encourage couples to include his wife and daughters at ceremonies.
