Introduction: I have a sense of humor while getting to know couples and helping them plan a personalized and memorable wedding. My over 30 years' experience as pastor and wedding officiant brings a calming presence to what can be a stressful time. Creating something beautiful with and for couples is my desire. I enjoy meeting people and helping them discover the words and rituals for the commitments they want to make to one another. All couples, whether religious or not, have values that are important to them to be expressed in their ceremony. I do my best to discover these values to create a personalized ceremony.

Wedding Officiant

Ron was all around wonderful. We contacted Ron a week before our wedding and he was willing to work with us on all our expectations and was willing to travel to a place of our choosing. He showed up on time, matched his attire to that of what we were wearing, and had a great personality.

Ron was amazing. We couldn't have picked anybody better. We are 100% satisfied with him. He got to know us on a personal level and added our special touches to our wedding. He went above and beyond for us.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My base price is $220. The base price includes two planning sessions, the wedding day, and signing then sending the marriage license to the proper authorities. Attending and/or running a rehearsal is an additional $50. Help with writing vows adds $25.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Our first meeting usually takes place at a coffee shop as a get to know you time, as well as a time for me to hear your hopes for your wedding. After the first meeting, I work on a draft of the ceremony, considering your wishes. Email addresses and phone numbers are exchanged to be in touch as plans are made. The second meeting usually takes place at the wedding venue if I am participating in the rehearsal. We would also go over the ceremony draft at that time and I would make adjustments and changes as necessary. Wedding rehearsal (if requested) and wedding day!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a bachelor of arts degree in English literature and a masters of divinity degree. I am ordained in two Christian denominations. I have served as a pastor in churches in Charlottesville, Virginia, then in Glendale, Peoria and Phoenix, Arizona. Listed on Thumbtack as a wedding officiant since 2013.
