Richard was outstanding. Officiated our same-sex wedding, helped us find a caterer, a photographer and followed up on the many details to make sure things went smoothly and helped create a wonderful day.

We did a web search and checked Yelp to help us find a wedding officiant in Palm Springs since we live in the Philadelphia area and had no idea about people/companies in that neck of the woods. It’s tough deciding on something so important without meeting face to face. We did a conference call with Richard and he seemed really nice and was very professional. We explained what we were looking for as far as the ceremony and more importantly, what we didn’t want. Richard listened very thoughtfully to what we said and put together a mock ceremony idea for us. It was perfect! He gets it! He’s not cookie cutter, he customizes what you want. Richard was extremely good at staying in touch with us and our emails were always returned promptly. The day of our wedding went as smooth as ice. He was there well ahead of time, helped us fill out the paperwork and gave a little friendly (and needed) advice on how to calm my nerves lol. His officiating style left the guest captivated and interested, not bored or counting the minutes until it was over. He was a great mixture of professionalism with a touch of humor to keep it on the lighter side. A few days later, we received a thank you email which also had info on how to obtain a certified copy from the County Recorders office. Our experience with Joyful weddings exceeded our expectations. It was a true pleasure. I HIGHLY recommend them and Richard both. You won’t be disappointed!

Same sex couples are gaining acceptance. 

Palm Springs gay weddings are the norm. The rest of the world has started to open up their hearts and minds to the idea of same-sex marriages. In reality planning a gay wedding is far different from traditional weddings. A gay wedding planner, however, can make all the difference! In fact, it even makes sense for same-sex couples planning their wedding in gay-friendly towns to hire a gay wedding planner for that special day.
