We were so happy with our choice of Rev. Ron for our wedding. We were searching for someone willing to officiate a non-religious wedding, but also wanted someone that would be relatively traditional (in content and appearance). Rev. Ron was just what we were looking for. We were hoping for quite a bit of help drafting the ceremony, and he provided several templates and examples for us to choose from. After we made a working draft, he quickly provided us with as many revisions as we needed until it was all set. The rehearsal was very useful, and he walked us through everything so that we were much more relaxed on the wedding day. The ceremony itself went very smoothly and was actually a lot more "fun" than I expected! Overall, we were incredibly pleased with how everything went!

Ronald Reaves gave us a beautiful ceremony! From our first contact via email he was genuine, kind, and professional. When we first met, my fiance and I connected with him and knew he was a perfect fit for our wedding. He provided us with all the resources that we needed to planning the perfect ceremony: a couples inventory survey - my fiance and I have dated for 6 years but after completing the survey and comparing our answers we learned some new and interesting things about each other - and he gave us a list potential poems, readings, and prayers that we could choose from to include in our ceremony. Reverend Reaves let us completely customize our ceremony by choosing the readings, writing our own vows, to even changing wording to the ceremony if we wanted. He sent us a draft of the ceremony that was basically a script containing what everyone involved would say. We were able to edit where we saw fit and he would make any changes to accommodate our wishes. I had complete confidence in Reverend Reaves for our wedding day. On the day of, he showed up early and was completely prepared. He gave us the perfect spiritual, romantic, and beautiful ceremony that we envisioned. Not only was he completely professional and knowledgeable, he really does care about who you are as a couple and wants to give you the perfect start to your marriage. I would definitely recommend Ronald Reaves as an officiant to any new bride!

Ron Reaves was a joy to work with. He responded to emails quickly and helped us create our perfect ceremony in person and via email. He understood we wanted a short ceremony with just a little bit of religion incorporated in and he helped us to create that. Very prompt for both the rehearsal and reception. He was a joy to work with!

We were so happy to find Rev. Reaves and have him as our wedding officiant! A close friend of mine had been married by him in the year previous to our wedding, and I remembered how perfect the ceremony was and how well it represented the couple who was getting married. So naturally I thought of Rev. Reaves for my own wedding when the time came. My husband's family is half-Jewish, and we were very concerned about not wanting to offend anyone with the language in the ceremony; Rev. Reaves essentially let us edit and change the ceremony to be exactly as we wanted. He was so incredibly nice -- and responsive! No matter what time I would email him -- 9 in the morning or 9 at night sometimes -- he would almost always respond right away. It was amazing, how "plugged in" he was! (Did I mention he uses a GPS to direct him to reception sites?) Moreover, I can't say enough about how accommodating Rev. Reaves was throughout our planning process. He was fine with us having essentially a non-religeous but traditional wedding. He was fine with whatever word changes, readings and passages we wanted to include. He didn't have a problem with a 20-minute ceremony. In short, he let us have the ceremony that felt right to US. We are so grateful to him for his flexibility, guidance and friendship, and would highly recommend his services to any couple.
