It was fine.

Very nice man, but make sure you DO NOT let him see you consume ANY alcohol before your ceremony!! My husbands best man wasn’t able to sign our marriage certificate because he was caught with a beer. Other than that everything was good!

Great! Robert is fantastic.

Robert was fantastic, by explaining all details of the marriage process previously the ceremony, that was provided in the way we wanted. Thank you so much Robert!

He read off the script

He was ok. We spent an hour a month before the wedding going over the changes to his script we wanted and mixing up the order to make it make sense for us and what we wanted to do and on our day he reverted to his original script. By no means ruined the day but I felt it was below average or average at best. We are married so there is that. My brother and sister in law had him 10 years ago, couldn't remember his name and warned not to get him. Just my luck we cheaped out and wound up with the same officiant. At their wedding, he forgot their vows and didn't pronounce my sister in laws name right. If you don't care about having a personal experience then he's cheap and does the job. ...have low expectation though.

Robert was amazing. Robert assisted my husband and I in planning a wedding ceremony that was perfect for us. We don't get married often, so Robert's suggestions were valuable and welcome. He's well spoken and lead the ceremony perfectly.

My husband and I felt so comfortable with Robert. He is such a lovely man and totally genuine. He was quite flexible as we wanted to incorporate some of our Christian values into the ceremony itself. Although he personally couldn't do it, he was able to give us some ideas of how we could and good places to insert them into the ceremony. His rose ceremony is really beautiful. Our only regret is that when we met 6 months after the initial consultation to go through the final practice, all of us forgot to discuss who would bring the roses for the rose ceremony. Unfortunately, because we forgot this detail, we had to remove it during our ceremony because we couldn't really proceed with it without them. However, he was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone else in the future.
