Jacob Withey – Michelle Gatto Wedding
Pismo Beach, California
April 2016

My husband and I were referred to Rick through our venue, The Cliffs. From the first phone call we knew that he would be our officiant! He was always willing to answer questions and provide guidance. When it came to our ceremony, we wanted a Christian officiant who was going to keep things light and happy which is just what Rick did. He truly captured the essence of our story and shared it in touching and funny detail for our guests. His words were meaningful and well considered and everyone kept commenting on what a fabulous ceremony we had. If you want a man that will truly capture the kind of couple you are and will be able to articulate that to your friends and family, this is your man! He is prepared and so kind, truly a joy to work with! Jacob and Michelle Withey


Alexandra & Louis | Santa Barbara Wedding
Santa Barbara, California
August 2015

My husband and I could not have been more happy that we hired Rick to perform our beach ceremony. It was so beautifully written and performed that it caused a lot of very happy tears among not only us, but all of our family and friends! Rick took time to get to know our love story, our backgrounds and our characters – he made it flow so naturally, used humor at perfect times and made it sound very sincere and touching.

He was very open minded and respectful of different cultures and religions and was eager to customize the ceremony any way we wanted! Rick was very responsive from start to finish and was always there to answer any questions we had. Thank you so much Rick for sharing such a special day with us! Mrs. & Mr. Vasquez


Wedding of Blaine Fellony – Ashley O’Hare
Paso Robles, California
December 2015

Rick did a GREAT job for us! My husband was stationed in Japan and I was in the States and we had to plan our ceremony long distance. Rick was so very professional; giving us a large variety of resources to work with, making himself available at any time for questions, giving advise on how best to incorporate all the elements we wanted in our ceremony, etc. He is poised, articulate, easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor – which helps keep the wedding party relaxed. The rehearsal was perfect and the ceremony was flawless. We had so many comments from our guests on what Rick wrote for us, especially in regards to telling the story of our relationship. Thank you Rick for helping make the best day of our lives so wonderful!
