Planning our wedding from outside of the area we were incredibly nervous and worried about hiring someone who we hadn't met in person. Brandon Rich made everything simple, easy and relieved all of our worries! He was a tremendous help when it came to helping with the planning & coordination. He offered great recommendations, performed an amazing ceremony for us and took care of all of the paperwork afterward! We travelled to Nashville for a week and were shocked at how quickly our marriage license arrived all because of Brandon. Brandon was professional, extremely responsive and we are so happy with the wonderful ceremony he performed.

I absolutely adore Brandon, I wish I could have written this review sooner. Brandon was such a delight to work with from the very minuet I contacted him to gather some information about having my wedding preformed by him and having it at Belmont Mansion. Due to me having my father back in Australia with some health issues I always made it clear that things could change which Brandon was more than willing to work with me on. From the get go he helped me plan, offered excellent suggestions and offered such a wide experience of knowledge that made mine and my now husbands day beyond wonderful. Due to health issues at the last minuet my Dad was unable to attend but Brandon made sure that we could skype him in so he didn't miss a moment. I could go on and on praising Brandon. Not only was he a joy to work with he is such a wonderful guy. 5 stars just aren't enough.

Rev. Rich is fantastic! Very easy to work with. He made this process stress-free and flawless from his end. It was very easy to customize the ceremony & vows to fit our wants and needs. He was fun to talk to and the ceremony was performed without a hiccup! Couldn't have been happier with his services :) I definitely recommend his pre-marital counseling package, too! He had many great ideas and recommendations for the whole wedding process. I absolutely recommend him!!

We hired Rich Events to perform our wedding ceremony. We were lucky to be given the opportunity for Rev. Fesler to perform our ceremony. We were having a Christian Ceremony and Bahai Ceremony. Rev. Fesler was a joy to work with. He met with us to go over how we wanted the flow of our wedding ceremony to go. He had no issue with allowing us to have a person from the Bahai faith to perform that part of the ceremony while he was there with him. He emailed and corresponded with us for months.

Thank you Rev. Fesler for helping making our wedding day perfect for us. We recommend him for any weddings.

Brandon officiated and coordinated our wedding. He travelled to Huntsville, AL for us, was always on time, and was always able to accommodate our schedules. He always replied very promptly (within minutes) to any emails I sent him. I could tell he worked very hard for us. He let us customize our ceremony and truely make it our own.
He was very professional and friendly. At the reception he was my "go to guy" with any questions or concerns that I had and was happy to help.
I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding officiant, coordinator or planner.

Rich Events introduced me to Rev. Rusty Parrish. He was great! He made my husband and I feel very comfortable the moment we met him. At the wedding when I started to get nervous he even helped calm me down! He did a wonderful job. It took Rich events a little while to respond to my request, but after that they stayed in constant contact!

Brandon performed our wedding ceremony and was very helpful. We had a lot of email contact prior to the wedding. Williamson County only gives you one copy of a marriage license, so if you need another one to take with you on your honeymoon be aware of that. (We had to take one to the All Inclusive we were staying at to get a free upgrade.) Brandon faxed it to me on his way home the Sunday night after the ceremony and I appreciated him going out of his way to do so. He's great to work with.
