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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

Richard was a pleasure to work with. Right from the first meeting he demonstrated a unique ability to understand what we were looking for and made it fun in the process. He spent time to understand all the facets that we wanted in our ceremony and seamlessly incorporated every element into the final product. We highly recommend him.
