I love learning about ceremonies, traditions and ideas from various cultures. My favorite part of the process is helping the bride and sometimes the groom to feel relaxed about my part of the day while they have so many things to worry about. I arrive early and put them at ease that the officiant is there. I help to make it lovely.

I want to start by saying, Judge Rob made the ceremony fun and kept it professional. For our wedding, we decided not to use a wedding planner and Judge Rob helped us as if we had one. Everything was on point, the ceremony went smoothly (even with the Bride being late) and the guests loved his energy. I highly recommend everyone who is looking for a wedding officiant, LOOK NO FURTHER! Thank you Judge Rob for making our wedding special!!!!!

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 101 - 150 guests • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Judge Rob was the perfect Officiant for our small wedding ceremony. He was very responsive from the very beginning to the very end. He really took the time to find out how we wanted our ceremony to be like and he made sure to include everything we wanted like a shout out to family on zoom that was in another country. He even accommodated us by speaking in Spanish for parts of the ceremony and for the toast. He was very professional and on time. He spoke with us and everyone else like the ring bearer, witnesses for the portion before the ceremony so we all knew what to do and expect. He also made the ceremony and toast fun and happy. The ceremony, signing, and toast went so smoothly. He even helped us figure out the best spot to have our ceremony and where to put the signing table as we did not have all that planned since we planned this wedding at the last minute. He really took the time to connect with us and our guests. All of our guests kept saying how he did a perfect job! He was the best Officiant we could’ve asked for. He made our ceremony so special for us and it really helped make our wedding day the best!

Details: Elopement • Christian • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Judge Rob did a FANTASTIC job with our wedding and got many compliments from guests afterwards. Found Judge Rob just under a week before our wedding due to our prior officiant backing out. Honestly it was a blessing in disguise because he couldn’t have done it better. Was very responsive in phone calls and emails. Even though it was short notice he took the time to learn about us and personalize the whole ceremony. Will recommend to anyone!

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 51 - 100 guests • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Judge Rob, The Officiant, FLA's reply
Thanks Maggie - it was a lovely event and your family and friends were so welcoming - I am glad you found me also and I could help make suggestions - My best to you and your husband
