Introduction: Robert Ashley - Recognized by Wedding Rule as one of the Top Five Wedding Officiants in Houston! He is also recognized on The Knot and on Wedding Wire in their "Best In Weddings" category. Hello, my name is Robert Ashley and I am a licensed and ordained pastor at Foundry United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas. I have been doing weddings for many years and my ceremonies include the bride and grooms personal story that I write based on a simple questionnaire that can be filled out on my website. There is also a "Contact Form" that provides vital information concerning the ceremony, the wedding location, time and date. There are a number of elements to a wedding but mostly it should tell the love story of two people who have decided to share their lives together. I believe a wedding should be memorable, meaningful and a personal celebration that reflects who you are. I create an experience that will be remembered well after the ceremony. If you need help booking a DJ, musicians for the ceremony or a band for the reception I can help. I can also help you locate some really off grid wedding venues and supply contact info for photographers, videographers, etc. Also, Foundry owns a beautiful wedding venue that is an exact replica of the Texas Alamo. You must see it to be believe that's in Houston. I'm looking forward to meeting you and having the opportunity to celebrate the happiest day of your life.

My husband and I wanted our wedding to be perfect so we spent a great deal of time planning. We hired a DJ, photographer, videographer, caterer, wedding planner and a beautiful venue in Pattison. However, the best decision we made was hiring Robert Ashley to be our wedding officiant. I’m not sure there is anyone who knows as much about weddings as he does. During our consultation he helped us add some additional elements that really made our wedding stand out. The questions we answered on his website really personalized our ceremony and made it one of a kind. Robert is a rock star among officiants!!

Robert was wonderful to work with for our wedding. He was always extremely responsive and genuine; he would often reach out just to check in and give well wishes throughout the wedding planning process. He is very professional and he wrote such a great ceremony speech for us that really captivated our guests. Robert also had lots of ideas to help us decide how we wanted to structure the ceremony and what type of ceremony activities to include. Wonderful experience using Robert as our officiant and would highly recommend him to anyone getting married in the greater Houston area!

Mr Ashley was a wonderful officiant. He took the time to talk with the bride and groom ahead of time so that his service was more personal. He was very professional and helped make the wedding special.

Mr. Ashley was amazing! He asked us a few questions (my husband and I each) for us to answer separately and with the information given he made our wedding very personal and sweet. It was as if he knew our relationship. We laughed, and cried and felt his words really came from the heart. Our guests really loved him and even our DJ complimented how prepared he was with his personal equipment. We love Mr. Ashely and are so very thankful we chose him. Don’t question it…just choose him!! You won’t regret it!

Rev. Robert Ashley is a MASTER CRAFTSMAN! I have absolutely loved watching him do what he does, with the greatest respect and admiration for his incredible skill set. It is like taking a Master Class in excellence and professionalism. He has an engaging personality that fills his amazing presentations with warmth, wit, and humor, while at the same time, remarkable poignancy and pathos. His weddings are more than a civil ceremony. Each one is a work of art, whether large or small, traditional or modern. His attention to detail and his preparation skills are always evident, and the result of a lifetime of experience. He is a master memory-maker, and you will never forget how beautifully and skillfully he ties a knot. It will be even more spectacular if he gets to add his breathtaking mastery of the guitar to your special day. Whatever you do, don’t hesitate to contact him. You have found what you are looking for!

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

    The value and cost of anything is based on time and effort required to satisfy the client. For example, most Wedding officiants perform the same ceremony over and over. They simply replace the names of those getting married which takes a few seconds of preparations. However, every wedding I perform is completely written from scratch. I prepare each ceremony based on my discussions with the bride and groom which makes every wedding I perform unique and captivating. I offer a no obligation consultation to get to know each couple and hear their needs and expectations. I offer suggestions and help them avoid the many pitfalls others have made preparing a wedding. Afterwards, I complete a discussion summary and email it back to the couple so that they have a template of their wedding. We use it to create a vision of the ceremony.

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

    My typical process normally has me direct a new customer to my website. On my website they can fill out the contact page that provides me with vital information about the couple and a questionnaire that provides insight into their relationship. I use this as part of the wedding.

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

    I am a licensed and ordained minister currently on staff at Foundry United Methodist Church in Houston. I have decades of experience performing weddings and I also possess a real passion for helping couples with one of the most important days of their lives.
