Introduction: Hello and congratulations! On the wedding day I don't schedule closer than 3 hours between events unless they are in the same town or building. So the block of time marked off on the calendar for the day is still the same either way. With all ceremonies I am on site 45 minutes to 1 hr. before start time. My quote includes unlimited telephone, Face Time, Skype and email consultations, preparation and performance of the ceremony itself, travel to/from the venue and a few beautiful marriage keepsakes, which include decorative vow cue cards, a single wedding program that has your information on the cover and your ceremony from start to finish on the inside, plus a keepsake certificate of marriage. The rehearsal is included at no charge, only if it is at the ceremony location no more than 1 hour before the ceremony start time. If you require a rehearsal on a separate day there is a fee involved however we can discuss whether you really need me at a rehearsal on a separate day. Your marriage license will be returned using certified mail the following business day. Also, I give the strongest guarantee in the industry when it comes to level of service. I am neither the least expensive nor the most expensive, however what I bring that many others don't is experience. This means delivery, content, working with other vendors is all flawless. In our meeting, I can also share some of the things that have made my wife and I have the kind of marriage that makes us grow closer every day. The fee is broken down into 50% as the initial retainer to secure your date and time with me and the balance would be due 30 days prior to the ceremony date and can also be paid over time leading to your big day! (time permitting) I look forward to hearing from you and working with you towards a special and memorable day!

Richard was so incredible and exceeded our expectations! He was so organized and prompt to respond throughout the entire wedding planning process and we loved how flexible he was with the ceremony script. He did a beautiful job officiating our wedding and was so professional and pleasant at our wedding. He made the marriage license submittal a breeze and even printed out our vows on nice paper! He also provided us with wonderful marriage advice that we will always cherish. Thank you Rev. Richard!

Rev Richard was great. I had to change my date because of COVID-19 and he made the necessary adjustments and assured me that everything was going to be ok and not to worry. He was down to earth and easy to work with. He tailored our ceremony exactly how we wanted it. The day of the wedding he was prompt and patient as we were still awaiting guests . He printed our vows on a nice card so we didn't have to memorize nor hold our phones during the ceremony. Rev Richard was truly an important part of our day, and we would recommend his services to anyone we know. Thank you so much for making our wedding day memorable.

We found Richard after our original wedding plans fell through due to Covid. We got married through Project Cupid, which was a little overwhelming and confusing, but Richard was very professional and pleasant as he guided us through all the steps. We got married over Zoom and the paperwork was made easy and straightforward. We cannot recommend him enough to any couple who is seeking to re-adjust and still get officially married while most things are closed/unsafe.

We loved having Richard being our officiant. He was amazing about the details and made the process very easy for us. Also, our ceremony was extra special due to intimate settings and small venue in our back yard. Richard was simply the best

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

    It all depends on several factors, i.e., distance, additional ceremonies etc.

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

    I work closely with the couple to formulate the marriage of their dreams. I like personally meeting with the couple and talking about their relationship and how they arrived to a point that they want to spend the rest of the lives together. We then get into their wants and desires for their wedding.

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

    Theological Seminary, reading several pieces of material relative to marriage ceremony, talks and advice.
