We couldn't be more happy with Father Ricky and his performed ceremony. It was very genuine and heartfelt and kept the attention of all the guests. He made it feel very personal and comfortable and guided my bride and I through smoothly with no blunders. It was perfect and I would recommend him to anyone.

I was recommended to Father Ricky by The Harbor Beach Marriott in Fort Lauderdale. I contacted him about performing our ceremony and he was very kind and patient. He answered all my questions and explained how the process was going to be. I sent him all my paperwork and was he had no problems answering any questions or concerns I had.

At one point I thought I was being a pain in the butt and I expressed that, so he made it a point to call me and let me know that I was not a pain and if I needed anything to please contact him. He took and suggestions I had a put them in the ceremony. We met with him weeks before the ceremony so he could get to know us as individuals and go over details. Father showed up on time and did an amazing job, he made the air feel lite and love was the only thing on our mind. He was funny and kind to all our guests.

I would definitely recommend Father Ricky...:))

We are so grateful that we found Father Ricky to officiate our wedding!
Since we are from Spanish family background, he was able to do a very nice bilingual wedding ceremony for our families. He managed to bring us out as a couple and who we are and show how much we love each other. The day of our wedding went prefect. My husband and I could not have asked for a better officiant and we recommend him for your big day.

Father Ricky was great !!! He came to our aid when another Officiant had backed out at the last minute. He always responds to every call, every email, etc. While some priests make you feel like they are somehow better than you, Father Ricky is like one of the family, even cracking a joke or two. He is also able to make changes to the ceremony at a moment's notice, if needed. Just very flexible, and a great guy all around. When my wife and I are blessed with a child, we want him for the baptism too.

We originally came across Father Ricky through wedding wire & then heard about him from a coworker. We were very impressed by the quality of his service. He took the time to get to know us as a couple which translated to a very personal & memorable wedding service. Despite having a full mass our guests were engaged & captivated by the meaningful, but fun/entertaining sermon. Always quick to respond to our concerns, Father Ricky was very flexible to our specific needs, most notably for a bilingual service. We highly recommend Father Ricky for those couples who wish for a unique & memorable wedding experience.

Father Ricky was open to my needs to give me the exact ceremony I wanted. During the nuptials, he showed humor while also providing the religious aspects we truly liked. He drove down to Miami to meet us weeks before the wedding and showed an extreme amount of warmth and respect. I gave a lower mark on value because he is expensive but if it is important to have a Father conduct your wedding, Father Ricky is worth it! If I could do it again, I would still choose Father Ricky...he is the best!

My husband and I met with Father Ricky before our wedding. He spent some time geting to know us and we immediately felt comfortable and at ease. He helped us plan a wedding ceremony including everything that we wanted. The day of the wedding he was funny, caring, gave us words of wisdom, and officiated a beautiful ceremony. Everyone thought he was great, and still 2 months later are still talking about how great he was! Thank you Father Ricky! Highly recommended!!!

Father Ricky provides a beautiful service for those looking for God's blessing on their special day. For our wedding, since it was the second for both, we wanted it to be fun but at the same time have the Holy Trinity present in our ceremony. Father Ricky's excellent deamenor from the first day we met was warm and welcoming. During the service, Father Ricky's blessing was felt by all our guests; it was just what we wanted plus more.

I picked Father Ricky because we wanted a bilingual wedding ceremony. When I booked him I was not aware that he did not live in Miami so meeting with him prior to the wedding was not an option. Although this was not ideal and upset me at first he was able to work with me over the phone and through email, which really calmed my nerves.

He was on time, very accommodating with certain mishaps during the ceremony and funny at times that were appropriate! Overall I would recommend him for his services.

Catholic Weddings By Father Ricky responded with the following comments:

Thanks Yomayra and Ricardo, but let me be clear about some points, First, you knew I was living in Orlando prior to hire my services, in the contract the address provided, where you sent ur contract and deposit is Kissimmee, so you were aware I was not in Miami, Meeting prior the wedding day was an option since I travel to South Florida very often, actually almost every weekend. About the 4.0 rate in Responsiveness, it's contradictory with your review " He was able to work with me by emails and over the phone". About the 4.0 rate on Flexibility, Just the fact I drove 4 hours and let you choose readings and help you customize a wedding ceremony, I think made my services, very flexible. Anyways, you are an amazing couple and I look forward to celebrate with you many wonderful occasions.

We highly recommend Father Ricky as the best wedding officiant there could ever be. Before the event place he will take the time to meet with you and listen to your needs and desires for your special wedding day and gives you advice in other areas you might not have thought of to make all your dreams reality so that your marriage ceremony can be everything you ever hoped for and more. He cares- - he gets it. Father Ricky's a down to earth person and at the same time very professional... what a great combination! He has the experience and expertise every bride and groom can trust in with total confidence.

Father Ricky was easy to work with, sweet and caring. I feel like I've known him for years! He's excellent. He made our ceremony intimate and relaxed, exactly what we were hoping for. He is so sweet and really cares about his brides and their families. I could not have asked for more. He is also very flexible with making arrangements to meet out of his area (he's located in Orlando and I am from Miami). He did not charge a travel fee because he travels often. I loved it and was thrilled with the result.

We are both Catholic and proceeded with planning the wedding at the direction of the Father of our church, only to be disappointed when the day approached and there was still no answer on the request for annullment of my husband's 1st marriage. We were both saddened at the thought of not being married in our church but when we met Father Ricky we felt reassured by his words and kindness. As a father of the Old Catholic Church he was able to give us a ceremony filled with faith and love and I know without any doubt that God was with us that day. Father Ricky has a heart of love with no judgement... this is what Jesus was sent here to teach us. He is very responsive and helpful through the entire process. He even rearranged a celebration that was set for him to another day in order to be with us for the Rehearsal the night before.

He was very kind and patient with all our changes in time and wording. Took his time and did everything the way we asked. Would recommend him to anyone. The absolute best! Read less

Catholic Weddings By Father Ricky responded with the following comments:

Wonderful couple, actually, one of my favorite bride and groom. Very sweet and kind, even they gave me 4.5 in Responsiveness, not taking in consideration, I was traveling for 3 hours and when I get there, the planner told me the ceremony was going to be late 1 HOUR, I did not care, just want to make them happy. Blessings to both.

Father Ricky is an awesome priest. He gave us a lot of words of encouragement before the ceremony which helped a lot. But he also sort of walk us during the ceremony through our nervousness. I really felt like he was walking us during the ceremony. I feel like all priests should have this understanding that when we get married we get nervous, we forget what to do and when. Father Ricky was there 100% for us and I'm totally thankful for that. He made us comfortable. He is perfect spiritual coach.

We had a destination wedding and corresponded via email with Father Ricky. He was very helpful and responsive. Father Ricky performed a beautiful wedding ceremony for my husband and I that included beautiful readings which our family read for us and a sand ceremony as well. We are very happy with his services and professionalism and would highly recommend using him to any couple seeking an officiant for their wedding.

Father Ricky was very accommodating and allowed us to choose exactly how we wanted the ceremony to be. He was very easy to work with and he even suggested a few things we could add to the ceremony.

We could not have asked for anyone better to officiate our wedding. Father Ricky did an amazing job. He performed the ceremony to what we wanted. And was even able to include some last minute changes. All the guests are still raving how wonderful the ceremony turned out. He even tried to crack a few jokes and make us laugh so it wouldn't be that serious. He even had to correct me at one point but that was the highlight of the ceremony. At least we will have something to talk about. He is professional and makes you feel extremely comfortable. I felt as though I have known him for years. Thanks again Father Ricky for making our ceremony the most wonderful ceremony ever. I will definitely recommend to all future brides. And yes, you can defnitely baptize our future kids.=) J&A - 11/27/09

Father Ricky was just so wonderful and helpful. I could call on him at any time for advice. Since we were having an interfaith wedding and I was the non-catholic party, he went out of his way to explain the tenets to me and make us feel comfortable. A year after our wedding we still keep in touch and I can call him for spiritual guidance. Sadia and Carlos

Clara and I met Father Ricky a couple of months before the wedding. Once we met him, we hit it off right away and he knew exactly what we were looking for in a bi-lingual, garden wedding. He made the process extremely easy for us and when it was all said and done, it was awesome. He is very professional, articulate, and most of all has a funny side to him that made me an my wife forget how nervous we were during our ceremony. I would endorse Father Ricky 110%.

Father Ricky is super funny. I was so nervous about the wedding day and he made me laugh so much I was at ease before the ceremony. He gave us such good advise when we first met him that we knew he was the one for the job. He was always available for any questions or concerns, even if he went out of town. We scheduled several meetings before the wedding and he was always on time and gave us all the attention we needed to answer all our questions. He was so nice and funny and such a good person that we still keep in touch with him. We highly recommed Father Ricky to be the Priest for your wedding, he makes the day alot better.
