Mr. Riggs was everything we needed for our ceremony. He did everything we asked of our ceremony. He was prompt and anytime that I had questions through email, he would respond very promptly. We received several compliments about how pretty our ceremony was and what a good job he did. We couldn't be happier!

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.

As our wedding was a destination wedding, our wedding planner suggested we look up Ralph Griggs. We are so happy that we did! Ralph was easy to stay in touch with, open to questions and provides an easy to follow ceremony planner that you can utilize to make your ceremony personal and to fit you. Although the majority of our planning and interaction had not been face to face with Ralph, he made us feel as if we had known him all along upon meeting him. He came early and prepared with our ceremony planner and even managed to add a little humor when I tried to place the ring on my grooms right hand....nerves got me I guess! I would recommend Ralph to anyone that asked! He was great!

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 great! We sent him our 'script' of what we wanted said at the ceremony. He went over it with us and was pleased with what we had sent him. We didn't want a religious ceremony and he did a fantastic job sticking to that. We had some mix up with our rings and he just played along and made everyone laugh. I could not be more pleased with the service we were given. I would highly recommend him for any type of wedding anyone plans on having.

Was very easy to work with and provided us with a wonderful ceremony. He even added a little comic relief when there was a mix-up with our wedding music and when I got a little weepy - really eased the tension and got us relaxed.

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!

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.

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.
