About Reverend Rich

I have been a non-denominational ordained minister since 1984. I have been married for over 25 years and have two lovely children. I was born and raised in Northern California and could never imagine living anywhere else.

I became interested in becoming a minister who performs weddings after attending countless dull ceremonies for family and friends. I was often bored to tears because the minister performing the ceremony was frequently a horrible public speaker. I'm not being mean... it's the truth.

With my background in public speaking and my willingness to perform in front of large groups, I took the plunge and have never regretted my decision. I absolutely love doing this. The atmosphere at a wedding is electric. Everyone is charged up and emotions run high. For most people it is the single most dramatic event of their lives. Having the opportunity to share in this most personal of moments is the best part of my job.

Nothing is more fulfilling than witnessing two people in love express their mutual devotion before their assembled family and friends. I consider it a privilege to be included in this theater of love and swear an oath of allegiance to do all that I can to make it all go smoothly. Over the past 25 years, I have married people from all walks of life. I have helped couples incorporate their individual beliefs, customs and preferences into their wedding ceremony.

Testimonials

"During our wedding dinner family members complimented on how beautiful the ceremony was and asked how long have we've known Rev. Rich? And our response was we met him about a month ago on the yelp. Everyone who attended our ceremony thought my husband and I were long time friends with Rev. Rich. He provided exceptional service from writing the vows to informing our guest where to go after the ceremony. Thank you, Rev Rich we will definitely recommend you to all of our friends who are getting married!"

"I really don't know where to begin with how happy I am with the wedding ceremony performed by Reverend Rich...Wedding day! He is right on time and totally took charge of the situation. We didn't really have a rehearsal the night before and he took care of everything. Who walks where, what hand does this, who takes the bouquet, who fluffs the dress, how to pose for this photo...I mean we're talking game on smooth as can be. It was a blur, a well timed, well organized, super fun blur. he didn't even blink twice when our robot came down the aisle and spewed petals...that's how pro he is. Super friendly, polite, and really took charge at the same time. I approve."
