There are not enough positive things to say about Richard Colonna. From the organization throughout the months leading up to the wedding, all the way through the professionalism of the actual wedding day, and even beyond, he was nothing short of outstanding. He makes you feel comfortable and calm throughout the entire process while ensuring that your ceremony will be EXACTLY the dream you are hoping it turns out to be. He even made light of a faulty microphone at our wedding and the ceremony did not even skip a beat. The care that he shows for his married couples, partnered with his ability to add a touch of humor into such an important day are just SOME of his qualities he will bring to your wedding day and the days leading up to it. Guests are still complimenting me to this day about how wonderful our officiant was and have even asked me for his information. I would recommend him to anybody in a heartbeat! Thank you for making our day as perfect as we imagined it would be! - Jess & Justin
Rev Rich is the officiant you NEED. He is absolutely awesome! My husband and I have been to a lot of weddings and we knew a good officiant made SUCH a difference, so this is one vendor we spent a lot of time researching. After meeting with Rev Rich, he immediately presented us with an example script of a ceremony, and ensured us we'd be able to customize it however we'd like. Rich pays attention to every single detail that you would have never thought of to ensure the ceremony will go smoothly. This was HUGE for me - You can trust him to perform a beautiful ceremony without a hitch, and he took care of all of the marriage license documentation for us, which was a huge relief. He is professional, responsive, and fun to work with! Several guests told us our ceremony was the best / most beautiful ceremony they have ever been to. Do not hesitate to book him!!!
Reverend Richard put us at ease from the first time we met with him! Although we live and work a bit far from where he is located, he was easy to schedule a meeting with and was super flexible with our sometimes odd work hours. During our first sit down, Reverend Richard showed us a breakdown of how a typical ceremony looks and then allowed us to personalize it to best suit our needs. He thought of everything from the bridal party lineup to confirming if there were any relatives he needed to help keep separate. In the days before our wedding, Reverend Richard confirmed our personalized ceremony via email until we felt comfortable that it was exactly right. On the day of, Reverend Richard came to our venue early to do a quick run-through with our parents and small bridal party so that we didn't have to schedule a separate day for rehearsal. He even told us some stories about previous weddings he had officiated to put our nervous minds at ease. And our actual ceremony was perfect! Reverend Richard was professional but not too serious and it was evident that he has been officiating weddings for a long time. We received many compliments after our ceremony and are thankful we chose Reverend Richard!
