MY BACKGROUND: My name is Ryan, and I am an experienced, professional wedding officiant, performing both religious and non-religious wedding ceremonies, in South Florida, since 2007. Over the years, I have worked with hundreds of amazing couples, performed a variety of weddings at both indoor and outdoor venues and locations throughout the tri-county area (including on our amazing beaches). Many of the couples I have worked with found me right here on Thumbtack. I have been consistently rated as a Thumbtack Top Pro since 2017. Moreover, I have maintained a 5-star rating on all reviews I have received over the years. I ❤️ being a wedding officiant. It brings me an immense amount of joy working with each couple in creating and performing their dream wedding ceremonies. Customer Service is my top priority. If my couple is not happy, then I am not happy. My goal is to ensure you are completely satisfied at the conclusion of your wedding ceremony. I bring over a decade of experience performing all types of weddings, both traditional to the non-traditional, religious, spiritual and non-religious, all over South Florida. I have worked with couples from a variety of religions, cultures, countries of origin, sexual orientations, gender identities, and from all walks of life. I pride myself on being the easiest part of your wedding planning. I believe it is my natural charisma and professional demeanor which has been the hallmark of success. It has allowed me to perform beautiful, expertly delivered ceremonies, which invoke joyous memories for my couples and their guests for years to come. These have often led to referrals from wedding guests to perform ceremonies for their family and friends. My reviews speak for themselves, and show the dedication and care I put into every wedding ceremony I create and perform. I have the fondest of memories of my couples, many of whom I have stayed in touch with over the years. I have watched the love they share in their married life continue to increase exponentially and have seen the beautiful families which have been created by their unions. Like I said, choosing the right wedding officiant is an important decision, as they set the tone for your entire wedding day. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you further, and show you how I would be the officiant who can get your married life off to the best possible start. Together, let’s make the most important day of your lives into one of the best days too. Note on COVID-19 precautions: I am TRIPLE-vaccinated. Additionally, I reserve the right to wear a mask before and after the ceremony, and only (typically) wear the mask during the ceremony when requested by my couple to do so. I carry hand sanitizer with me, and try to maintain a 6-foot buffer from my couples and their guests before and after the ceremony, as well as during the ceremony, if space permits. I have a personal commitment to keep my couples, their wedding guests, any vendors. and myself safe and healthy at all times. If you have any additional questions regarding these precautions, please let me know. I look forward to speaking with you soon. Make it a great day!!!

Ryan was the perfect officiant for my husband and me! We worked with him from a distance and in person as we had a destination wedding. My husband and I were so nervous to be the center of attention, but he reminded us to take a deep breath and act like it was only the two of us in the room. The ceremony was beautiful and everyone is still talking about our officiant two months later! Thanks for everything, Ryan!

Ryan was wonderful to work with and was kind throughout! Our wedding was beautiful and his words helped make the whole ceremony feel intimate. As a nonbinary individual, having Ryan be mindful of wording was very important to me. He truly highlighted us as a couple while making sure everything was memorable.

Ryan did a great job officiating my sister-in-law’s backyard wedding. He was very easy going throughout the whole process, keeping us up to date beforehand, and throughout the wedding day. He was very professional, yet very personable. His personality, personal touches, and flexibility really helped to make wedding day special. Thanks again Ryan, we can’t recommend Love Unions enough!
