The ceremony was great!

“You know your officiant/wedding planner is amazing when guests pull you aside to tell you how your officiant is so obviously invested in your happiness. Richard cares! Everyone who met with him during this planning process mentioned how we were in good hands. Not just previous customers/vendors but our families as well. Palm Springs is one of the most expensive places to get married and thankfully Richard used his connections to find the most amazing and affordable venue – Mission Palm Springs. He even helped us get on local news to complain when Vacation Palm Springs canceled our wedding home without notice in favor of re-listing at a higher price. Richard is very calm and centered. If you are slightly uptight (as I will admit I am) sit back and relax, because he has everything taken care of. At the height of planning chaos he helped calm me and force us to enjoy the planning process. Richard has different price points so be very clear with him what you’d like. Don’t expect place cards, seating arrangements, etc. at the lower price point. Be clear and open with him about budgets and responsibilities and remember that you are ALWAYS saving money with Richard. He is an amazing planner with a fantastic reputation. However it was his thoughtful, poignant, and effortlessly written ceremony that captured our hearts. From the first meeting he assured us he cared and when we parted ways at the ceremony we were left with warm hearts and lifelong memories thanks to this amazing man!”Christopher

 

“Richard is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. From the first day that we met him, my wife was set on him being our officiant. He is a great listener and makes everything very comfortable. He was able to make a beautiful personalized ceremony that captured all of our guests’ attention. We are so glad that we made the choice to have Richard as our officiant and would highly recommend him to anyone!” Robert

“If you’re looking for an officiant, look no further, Richard is the one! Richard was an absolute pleasure to work with! From our first phone call, we knew he was the perfect officiant for our wedding. He was easy-going, got to know us, and was always organized and on top of things. After our ceremony, several guests asked us how we knew Richard, because he knew us and fit us well! Our ceremony was a combination of humorous (jokes at my expense – that I approved), sincere, and so special. Richard even included special father/daughter vows, and it made our day that much more special. THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts!”Alyssa

“Richard was great! With about a month until our wedding our officiant backed out. Richard was glad to step in and able to do the rehearsal the day prior as well. He is very prepared and clearly knows what he is doing. He makes great effort to get to know you and cater the ceremony to the couple. He has great tips as well! “Vanessa

“Richard was amazing! I was nervous about planning a wedding in Palm Springs being that I was from Canada. Richard helped me with everything and took any amount of stress I was feeling out of the equation. Helped me pick hair and makeup services, photographer, location etc. I have travelled many places in the world and met many people. Richard is a true gem. Highly recommend his services.” – Shannon

 

” Richard was amazing from day one! I found him online while my husband and I were exploring Palm Springs for our wedding. From our initial phone call to our actually wedding Richard was there every step of the way. He helped me decide on the type of wedding to have, where to stay during our visit, the wedding location, flowers, photographer, videographer, everything! He was quick to respond to emails and always willing to help. It was comforting to have someone with so much wedding knowledge on my side! My husband and I were from Chicago, so all of our interactions with Richard were through phone or email, but the day that we met Richard for our ceremony it was like I knew him for years. He brought such a wonderful energy: so kind, funny, easy going and passionate! Can’t go wrong with Richard!” Deanna

 

“We love Palm Springs so much we purchased a condo there last year. It was decided that it would be the perfect place to begin the next chapter in our lives which came together 19 years ago. We said yes to our respective proposals on Sunday 3/20/ 2016. Following a quick web search, our first call was to Richard. We will forever feel like we won the lottery by making that decision. We described that we wished to be married on our balcony overlooking the mountains. His ability to take our suggestions, combine them with his own and provide EXPERT advise on how and where to begin obtaining the license on line helped to make the planning nearly effortless. He was the best wedding gift we could ever receive. We were surprised that Richard remembered the names of our friends Robert and Keith who would be staying with us while we were in Palm Springs and incorporated there names in our ceremony along with comments about the beautiful balcony setting between the mountains and the desert. It was obviously not a canned ceremony. Add to all of that Richard had no resistance to performing our ceremony on Easter morning following the sunrise service he performed on the mountain top. It was absolutely perfect. Most of the arrangements were made during the first phone call which took less than 1/2 hour. We look forward to seeing Richard when we visit Palm Springs in the future. There are not enough good comments we could ever make to describe how pleased we feel to have chosen Richard to help us plan the most important day in the rest of our lives.” James Turilli

“Richard was fantastic! We were organising our Palm Springs wedding from Australia and Richard was so helpful finding and suggesting the right ceremony location that we wanted and he composed the perfect ceremony. He made our service fun, intimate and breathtaking, every guest commented on how great he was. From our first contact via email to speaking with him on the phone he was always a delight. We were so happy to meet him in person and could never thank him enough for marrying us just the way we had hoped and imagined. Cheers Richard!”Lauren D

“We cannot thank Richard enough for, not only helping us through the process of getting our marriage license together, but also taking the time getting to know Bob and I.

“We eloped from Vancouver BC to Palm Springs. The folks at Joyful Weddings were a delight to work with! Richard made all the event arrangements with flowers, photography, venue and more! Everything was beautiful and much more than expected! Including the vows and the words during the ceremony itself! He also ensured the paperwork was completed and filed properly guiding me each step of the way.. He even picked up the flowers! This was SO easy to have a beautiful ceremony with Richard! If there were 6 stars, that’s what he would get!”Cheryl B

 

“Richard was wonderful from the first email to the actual wedding. He came to us highly recommended from our wedding coordinator and friends. We were planning our wedding in Palm Springs but we live in Ohio. We were a little uncertain about using someone we didn’t really know, because we wanted our ceremony to feel very personal. Turns out, there was no reason to worry. We first met with Richard about 9 months before the ceremony and he spent several hours getting to know both me and my fiance. Our communication continued in the months leading up to the wedding and he worked with us to really customize our ceremony. One of the things that stands out most is he stuck around after the rehearsal to go to the rehearsal dinner. He really wanted to get to know us and our friends and family. By the time the wedding rolled around, it felt like we had known him for years. His ceremony perfect. He made people laugh and cry. Everything was exactly how we dreamed it would be, but even better. He also was a great help when it came to making sure all our paperwork was in order and done correctly. There aren’t words to say how thankful we are Richard came into our lives. There is no one else we would have wanted there to guide us through our special day. Thank you Richard!! Emilie and Ben”Emilie V
