    Great officiant

    Richard was a wonderful officiant and we would recommend him to future couples getting married! He was quick to respond and flexible with changes that we made to our day :)

    Richard was AMAZING!

    Made the wedding ceremony perfect! Also helped us out through the whole planning process and so many options and directions to make it fit to us and our big day!

    You had such a beautiful ceremony at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory! It was fun to include the kids in the sand ceremony. I'm sure that you will have fond memories always!

    Wedding August 7,2020

    Thank you so much to Richard for marrying us! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and so perfect. We are SO happy Richard suggested an additional reading. The words my sister said were absolutely perfect and it added such a special touch to the ceremony. Richard also spoke wonderfully and we were so impressed with how smooth everything went.

    People complimented us so much on the ceremony (family and friends from afar too!) The words, the way it was presented, and the length of time. It is so great that we have that recording so we can rewatch it for years to come.

    Thank you so incredibly much for everything you did for us. It was the most beautiful day and a memory we will cherish forever.

    Our Wedding Celebration - Wedding Officiants's reply:

    Laura, thanks for the very kind review! I totally agree your sister Ciara added the personal touch to your ceremony. And the backyard wedding was perfect!
    All the Best to you and Matt!

    Simply Amazing!

    Richard was amazing, not only did he go above and beyond our expectations but he blew our family and friends away, we had a small private ceremony and it was everything I wanted and more. We can't thank him enough for everything he did for us. This is a weird time we are all in with covid, but Richard made sure our wedding felt perfect.
    I highly recommend using Kettle Creek Weddings.

    Our Wedding Celebration - Wedding Officiants's reply:

    Thank you Kayla!
    I wish you and Matt all the best! I really enjoyed your ceremony, it's what we have to do these days. I trust you had a great celebration party on Saturday!

    A weird year turned wonderful

    This year has been... unprecedented. When my mother in law passed in May the funeral home recommended Richard to officiate for us. He did such a wonderful job that we asked if he did weddings... I was so excited when he said that was his specialty. Richard took the time to get to know us and helped to make our day so wonderful. He was always available to answer any questions we had and we will be recommending him to all of our friends with weddings coming up!

    Our Wedding Celebration - Wedding Officiants's reply:

    Thanks Ellen for your kind words! It has been an "unprecedented" time for all of us! I am so very happy to have gotten to know you and Drew and to share in your wedding!

    The "Drive-In" wedding was so awesome and creative, I loved it!

    All the Best to you and Drew!

    Very flexible and easy to communicate with.

    Aubrey made that part of the wedding so easy. Didn’t even have to think or worry about that part of the wedding. He was flexible with last minute changes and when I forgot the words he didn’t make it seem like I did. Their pricing is awesome too.

    Best Experience

    Richard put our minds at ease while we planned a wedding during COVID. He was very responsive, answered any questions we had and guided us through the whole process. Our ceremony was beautiful and everything flowed so well. Even though I had family members running late for the ceremony, Richard did an excellent job managing everything.

    Thank you so much Richard !

    Our Wedding Celebration - Wedding Officiants's reply:

    Thank you Ekin for your kind review. You and Alex looked so happy following the ceremony!
    All the Best!
