Rick was extremely helpful in guiding us through the ceremony and wedding process. He has years of experience which we greatly benefited from. His process is streamlined in a timely manner which made things easy for me. He was very flexible in arranging meetings with us. His son, John, was our DJ who did an amazing job keeping the music going from the beginning of the ceremony all the way until the end of the reception. He was very helpful with suggestions for selecting songs/music. He knows his music. Thanks guys!

My husband and I eloped in Rockport MA by the beach on September 7th. Just the two of us -and Rick. Rick made our simple ceremony more then we could of ever expected. It was a intimate moment filled with beautiful words that will be forever in my heart.

Rick did an incredible job performing my wedding and even helping me to plan it. He found us the perfect spot and was flexible with me planning it last minute. I wrote him an email with some questions and he responded with answers 5 minutes later. He made our ceremony fun and made us laugh which helped ease our nerves. I would recommend him to anyone in the Gloucester area who needs a JP for their wedding.

Rick was always such a pleasure to interact with. He is professional and organized and on top of that, very clearly a “people person”. He has been involved in the wedding industry for years (himself as a musician and for the past several years an officiant, his wife as a planner, and his son as a sound technician), so he’s got tons of experience and know-how. He does officiate at a staggering number of weddings every year, so in contacting him during the summer busy season, I got the impression that he had piles of “to-dos” for others’ weddings, and worried a bit about how it would affect my own wedding. But it was unwarranted. Being busy also means having experience, and when it came to our wedding day, we felt like the only wedding he was performing all summer. He personalized the ceremony with information about us, and couldn’t have done a better job if he’d known us for years! He set the tone for the ceremony perfectly – just what we wanted. All throughout the reception (and even weeks later), our guests were raving about the ceremony – more than the cake, the dress, the food, the music, and décor combined. It was the most important part of the day for us, and it was everything we hoped it would be.

Rick is a great guy and very personable. He made us feel very comfortable from the start and it is clear he is very knowledgeable about his profession and about other vendors in the Gloucester area and has a lot of connections. His wife is a wedding planner and JP and his son provides sound for ceremonies too! After spending an hour with Rick at our first meeting, we canceled the meeting we had with another JP because we liked Rick so much. He was professional, helpful, responsive, and enthusiastic throughout our entire planning period and the ceremony itself. We also heard that a number of our guests were impressed with him too and we are so happy to have met and chosen Rick Perry.

Rick was suggested to me by my venue, The Commons 1854. I'm so happy that I decided to go with their suggestion. Rick was extremely flexible. My schedule is super tight the first few months of the year and he even offered to Skype if I couldn't get there to meet him in person. He gave us a lovely packet in order to customize our ceremony and it couldn't have worked out better. He was a calming presence during both the rehearsal and the cermony itself. I received a ton of compliments on our ceremony and I owe it all to Rick!

He was so supportive with everything from help finding a gorgeous location to be of assistance giving the information we needed for our marriage license. The ceremony was more heart-felt than I could have ever dreamed. If you are looking for an extraordinary person to officiate your ceremony, look no further!

I highly recommend Rick Perry of Gloucester Weddings. We wanted a brief, informal, non-religious, outdoor winter wedding. Rick understood and provided exactly what we had envisioned. Rick was professional, warm, and clear in all our communications prior to the ceremony. He sincerely wanted to make us happy and meet our needs, and did so perfectly. During the ceremony, Rick interacted well with the young children who were our Flower Girl and Ring Bearer, as they were a bit nervous. That really touched me. Rick was very "present" and engaged at the ceremony, but was not at all intrusive. Rick was a joy. (And his cost was very reasonable.) I can't imagine any Officiant being more perfect for our wedding.

We cannot say enough good things about Gloucester Weddings by officiant Richard E. Perry Jr. Rick was a true professional in every sense of the word. He walked us through everything step by step and ensured that our wedding ceremony had both a personal feel for us. Rick was calm cool and collective (even during times when we were not!) and helped to make our wedding memorable for years to come. Thank you so much Rick, we will never forget you. We highly recommend Gloucester Weddings to anyone.

Rick was great. He helped both me and my husband to create our own vows, making our ceremony even more special. Any questions we e-mailed, he had a timely answer. We were able to have the small, intimate outdoor ceremony which was a little less formal, going with our style and the mood we wanted perfectly. I would definitely recommend Gloucester Weddings to anyone who's looking.

From our first meeting to the actual ceremony itself, it was a pleasure to work with Rick. We were worried about finding an officiant for our wedding in such a short amount of time and to find someone who was so professional about creating the ceremony was a great experience. We felt prepared and comfortable walking into the ceremony as Rick had worked with us through email to create our perfect ceremony and even rehearsed it with us the day before the wedding. We greatly appreciated Rick's organization and quick responses to email when questions came about. Most importantly, family and friends who attended the wedding said it was one of the most meaningful ceremonies they had ever attended. Needless to say, the ceremony was meaningful to us as it incorporated all of the personal elements we had asked Rick to include. We cannot thank Rick enough for being our officiant. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a personalized wedding ceremony that is tailored to meet their needs.

Rick Perry was the PERFECT Officiant for our wedding and I am incredible thankful to have found him and have him as a part of our day. I as this because he provides FULL service ceremony guidance from the first steps if talking out what you think you want to writing and editing, and of course rehearsal and then the ceremony itself. Rick really caters to what the couple feels best relates to them. He is open, honest, kind, and takes his time to hear you and respond to your needs.
I can say with total conviction the Rick saved my wedding... he worked with us to develop the perfect ceremony and even trained a friend of mine to do the ceremony itself ion the day as this is what we wanted - however when my friend had to pull out two days before the wedding Rick was right there talking me down from the ledge and offering his services for the day. The ceremony went off with out a hitch! I will be eternally grateful to him and his entire family - which also offer wonderful wedding related services such as DJ and planning. I would HIGHLY recommend them all!!

Rick is a sweetheart. From first meeting, I knew he'd be terrific.

He sent us an electronic file of example ceremonies. My man and I proceeded to cut, paste, and edit what we liked from this file to create our very own vows.

We wanted a ten minute beach ceremony, and that's exactly what we got. He was affordable, timely and professional. He was also cheesy...which was just perfect.

Wonderful job with the outdoor ceremony music, despite the wind and the cold. We did need to proved an SD card with the music we wanted. This surprised me. But it all worked out and overall I was very satisfied with the services and very affordable.
