The perfect officiant for our wedding

Rudy is truly professional, kind-hearted and thoughtful. We had the pleasure of meeting him in person before the wedding and had a sit down meeting about the ceremony. He gave constructive critiques and helped us make a more fluid ceremony script. His online portal for clients to create the ceremony you want really helped with all his resources at your fingertips. Rudy is responsive when you contact him, before during or even after the wedding. His presence at our wedding made our ceremony special.

For Rudy out there, we were your ceremony in August where we forgot our wedding rings! Whoops! Thank you for just going with the error and carrying on when we finally got the rings from my father.

COVID wedding

Rudy was kind, flexible and helpful. He was supportive when our wedding plans changed at the last minute due to COVID. We had many guests attend virtually and they all said he did an awesome job. He was funny, personable and well prepared to officiate our wedding. I would highly recommend Rudy.

Rudy is great!

After much searching - Rudy was the one!
He's so calm and laid back. My fiance (now husband) felt very comfortable with him - which was so important for us. We wanted a simple ceremony with heart and that's what Rudy gave us.
What more can you ask for?!

Wonderful job!

Rudy was my other two best friends' wedding officiant and he did a great job both times, so I decided to have him as mine as well. My wedding was changed to backyard wedding due to Covid, and he was very flexible and understanding to the change. Ver easy to communicate with and responses are quick too. He is very organized and let us know everything we needed to prepare ahead of time. Everything was so easy with him, ceremony was amazing and smooth, joyful and fun, really enjoyed the entire experience. Thank you, Rudy!

Loved Rev. Rudy!

Rev. Rudy did a fantastic job on my wedding ceremony! We had 200 pp who have never been to a wedding outside a church and he managed to keep each guest listening the entire time. I loved that you can personalize the readings, whether your religious or not. I was brought to tears many times and couldn't thank him enough for giving us the most memorable ceremony ever!

Amazing Officiant

We made the right choice of making Rudy our officiant. The ceremony was beautiful and went the way we wanted it to be. He is very professional at the same time very kind. You'll see what I mean from his emails. I also appreciate the time he spent with us for marriage counseling. He helped us discuss our differences. Thank you again, Rudy, for being such a great officiant.
