Ralph Griggs officiated our wedding in our home. We wanted a simple Christian ceremony with only a few family members present and it could not have been better. Ralph was patient when we had a couple of delays in our timing and could not have been more kind to everyone. We searched for a wedding officiant via the Internet, but know God had a hand in helping us find Ralph. We once again extend our thanks to Ralph and highly recommend him to anyone seeking a wedding officiant who is dependable, kind, and will provide you with the wedding ceremony you desire.

We were actually married by Ralph's wife Mary due to Ralph not being available. Mary was wonderful and we were very pleased with services. Loved that we got to do our counseling online and also we were able to customize our ceremony with the event planner provided.

Ralph was booked for our big day but his wife Mary also officiates and we decided to choose her. Mary met with us before our wedding and went over all of the wedding details and it was such a pleasure to work with her. The wedding planner she gave us was perfect and really helped us decide how we wanted our ceremony to go. Mary was wonderful and our day was perfect!

Minister Griggs has a great website that answers alot of questions for the future husband and wife. He listens to what they want by way of ceremony, and has a sincere respect for the sanctity of the event. His calendar gets busy so best to contact him way in advance.

When a photo from our wedding was posted online someone commented, “Ralph is like ‘Where’s Waldo’!” And it’s true! For weddings in the Nashville area, you need to look no further than Ralph Griggs.

We booked Ralph nearly a year out from our wedding and worked with him for our premarital counseling, too. We loved the program he offered, and it gives you a great deal on your marriage license.

Ralph was fabulous the day of. When I met him right before the ceremony he was cool, calm and collected. That made me feel more confident and less nervous as I was about to head down the aisle. Beyonce concert goers were screaming in the street right as we were about to start, and Ralph made a joke that got us and our family and friends laughing.

He had the wedding license back to Davidson County Clerk by the Tuesday of that week and it was in our hands just over a week later (and we live out of state!).

Ralph was wonderful to work with before, during and after our wedding, and I am so happy to have chosen him to marry us.

Ralph made our ceremony so heart felt and although we have only known him for a few months for our wedding he made the ceremony so special like he had known us for years! He has such a calm air about him and he just makes everything relaxed and so perfect! I would recommend Ralph to anyone looking for a minister in the Nashville area! He is a pro :)

we were very happy with our ceremony with Mr. Griggs. He did a great job and it was exactly what we wanted. Great price, easy to communicate with, and we changed our time and location and he was flexible to that as well. Would refer anyone to him! The marriage course he provided was great for us as well.

Ralph was absolutely fantastic. I would recommend him to anyone. He was very professional and timely. My husband and I loved the online marriage counselling, we could do it at our own pace and I felt like we both got more out of the counselling then we would have in a group, or in front of a minster because we were able to talk about more detailed things without being embarrassed. We met with Ralph about a month from our wedding date to go over the ceremony, he lets you make the ceremony whatever you want it to be, he even has great ideas if you just want the "standard" ceremony. He was great on the wedding day, I was a little flustered and crying, so he would take pauses and let me compose myself before I had a speaking part etc. He even made the audience laugh a few times. Overall, we were very very pleased with Ralph. :)

Finding an officiant for my wedding was a little intimidating. I always assumed my uncle, a preacher, would officiate my wedding, however he became too ill. My fiance and I live in Chicago and got married in Smyrna, TN, so we weren't familiar with many ministers in the area. I chose Mr. Griggs based on his website and online reviews, and he was wonderful to work with. His wedding ceremony guide and marriage counseling handbook are incredibly helpful. I wrote much of the ceremony myself and Mr. Griggs was very flexible and willing to work with me. He did a wonderful job the day of the ceremony and made everything feel very personal, even though he was just meeting me and my fiance for the first time! I have already recommended him to a few friends and will continue to do so.

We received many compliments from our guests on the ceremony as well. To top it off, he was extremely responsive and professional throughout the entire process.
