Father Christopher Richard

518.859.5710 www.FrRichard.com
I am an Catholic Priest, of the Old Catholic Paulists, who is available to Officiate at Catholic or Christian Wedding Ceremonies in Albany, Saratoga, Lake George, Upstate New York, Western Massachusetts, & Vermont.

The Wedding Ceremony can take place at your Reception venue, a banquet hall or restaurant, a garden or park setting, or other place of your choosing.
I accommodate those who do not belong to a specific church or denomination, but wish to have a Wedding Ceremony which is "Blessed in the Eyes of God". Those who have been previously married are welcome.

I offer Wedding Ceremonies that range from a Catholic Non-Mass, to a full Catholic Mass, to a Christian Non-Denominational Ceremony. All Ceremonies can either be indoors or outdoors. Read less

Msgr. Richard did a fantastic job as our officiant. We got married on 8/14 and he made all of us feel very comfortable and helped to calm any nerves that anyone may have had. He was professional, caring and funny. He was very prompt in returning emails and phone calls and was very easy to set up meetings with. After our rehearsal our families and wedding party were all talking about how great he was and were very pleased with our choice. He helped to make our day wonderful and we are so happy with our decision to have him as our officiant.

Thank you,

Brittany and Mike

Lovely ceremony and fabulous preparations. We wanted a ceremony in the Catholic tradition and Msgr Christopher Richard made our day so very special and memorable for us. All of our guests (Lutherans, Irish and French Catholics) took communion and enjoyed the readings we had chosen. Msgr Richard tied all the readings together with a beautiful summary and made it a day we will never forget, We highly recommend him.

Father Christopher Richard did an amazing job as our officiant. Since we were a non-denominational service, we had some special requests with how the ceremony flowed and what was said; we were impressed with his openness to our desires. He was easy to contact and responsive throughout the period prior to our big day. On the day of the ceremony, he was timely and very well prepared to perform the wedding...helping to give us a sense of calm on an otherwise hectic day! There ceremony itself was thoughtful, dignified, and special for all in attendance. I would absolutely recommend Father Richard!

He was helpful, understanding and supportive. Msr. Richard provided the exact solution we were looking for - a way to honor the bride's Catholic upbringing and faith in an outdoor ceremony with her husband of another faith. Msr. Richard was understanding of our lifestyle and appreciated us an upstanding couple living a life of integrity, compassion, and generosity. On the wedding day, he was prompt, responsive, friendly and most of all, flexible when God "blessed" us with a thunderstorm as soon as the ceremony began! His friendly attitude made it enjoyable and memorable!

Father Richard helped us with many aspects of our wedding planning. He provided his advice, but ultimately was supportive of whatever decisions we made. He was very professional, but also easygoing and put us at ease. He was knowledgeable of positioning for photo opportunities during the ceremony to make sure our pictures turned out amazing! Father Richard allowed us to have the catholic wedding ceremony of our dreams outside or a church and it was simply perfect! He was recommended to us by a friend and we would certainly recommend him to ours!

Father Richard was wonderful. It was such a pleasure working with him. We met with him a few times before our wedding to go over details, and each time, he went out of his way to offer suggestions we hadn't even considered, or even ask if there was anything he can do to make things easier for us. He made us feel very comfortable with our choice to have him officiate our marriage. I also loved that my venue and DJ had all worked with him before. Everything fell together nicely. I had multiple family and friends come up to us and ask about Father Richard after the ceremony. They all said how beautiful it was. I agree, it was perfect. He truly cares and it shows. You will not regret choosing him for your special day.

I can't say enough about Father Richard. He made our ceremony so special. It was a second marriage for both of us and we both wanted that special touch that said "at last" and that included our children by uniting us as one. Father Richard's ceremony was heart felt, moving and appreciated by everyone. Guests came up to us and told us what a beautiful ceremony we had and they were absolutely right! It wouldn't have been this way with Father Richard.

Msgr. Richard recently attended our wedding weekend in Cooperstown, NY. From the beginning stages of planning, we were so glad to be working with him. His help and guidance throughout the planning process was wonderful, answering our questions thoroughly and giving advice and suggestion when needed, and making us feel comfortable from day 1. We won't ever forget Msgr. Richard's sense of humor, either, which was extremely comforting and made our bridal party feel relaxed and confident for the big day. The ceremony itself was just lovely, and guests are still remarking about Msgr. Richard and what a wonderful presence he was during the wedding.
