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. I look forward to speaking with you soon. Make it a great day!!!

Ryan officiated our wedding and did a really amazing job. He was kind, understanding, responsive and very helpful. I’m so glad we chose him and you should too! Ryan was there for us whenever we had any questions and he worked with us to make the perfect wedding ceremony. This aspect of our wedding was stress free and really well coordinated.

Wedding Officiant

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!

Wedding Officiant

My wedding was on July 18,2020. I contacted Ryan because my former officiant canceled on me last minute. He worked with us on a short notice. His ceremony was beautiful and made my wedding day so special. You can feel that he has a passion what what he does. Thank you for marking my day special with your beautiful ceremony.

Wedding Officiant

I heard all kind of scary stories with wedding officents and was afraid if I was going to find someone realable and knew how to speak in front of people and I found Ryan and omg he made me feel so relaxed and he was so helpful even when things didn't go as planned due to weather he was there and talked me through not having a break down, he was like a friend to us and would totally reccomend hands down !!

FAQs

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

    The fee listed is for the basic package which includes an phone/virtual consultations, and a professionally-delivered, personalized wedding ceremony with the option to write your own vows or a choice of pre-written vows (traditional or contemporary versions available). There are other packages available to meet any and all of your needs. Please ask for further details. If your ceremony will be performed north of West Palm Beach or south of Aventura, you may be subject to an additional mileage fee. I offer discounts for healthcare workers, first responders, seniors, and current or former military personnel.

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

    I will work with you to learn who you are as a couple and individually. I offer unlimited email communication, as well as time arranged to speak on the phone, Skype or text. All packages include notarization/solemnizing of your marriage license application and submission of the paperwork after completion of the ceremony to the applicable Clerk of the Court. There are several packages to pick from. These options will be gone over and allow you to pick the ceremony that is right for you. If you so choose you can also pick from a list of add ons including but not limited to, breaking of the glass, unity candle, and a sand ceremony. No request is too big. This is your special day, and I am here to help make it as memorable as possible for you.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I began performing weddings when a dear friend asked me to officiate her wedding over 10 years ago. Since then I have been couples from all over the world to create their romantic, memorable ceremonies, whether they are getting married for the first time, remarried, or renewing their vows.
