As you know, the California Central Coast is a wonderful destination point for many weddings because of the sunny climate, sandy beaches, and the excellent wineries. The professional service I bring to a wedding is the ceremony as a Wedding Officiant. Although many hundreds of dollars can be spent on dresses and flowers, the one thing most wedding parties definitely want is a personal, relational ceremony that connects the bride and groom with their family and friends in a ceremony that has dignity, humor, and a touch of real life authenticity.

I have been performing weddings for over 40 years as an Officiant. You can imagine the many different settings and types of weddings at which I have had the privilege of officiating with close to 4,000 ceremonies performed. My goal is to personalize and tailor the wedding ceremony to the bride and groom's tastes and beliefs.

My credentials include 1) a former practice as an attorney for 5 years in Dallas; 2) 30 years as a senior minister of two, large, non-denominational churches, the last with in excess of 2,000 weekly attendees and 6,000 members; and 3) 20 years of business experience that involved the starting of a health care company which currently has about 200 employees. My international travels have connected me with many different cultures. These multiple experiences enable me to relate easily to most people, regardless of their backgrounds and experiences, even though I only speak English.

In addition, my wife, Kris, has been a Marriage and Family Therapist with her own practice for over 25 years before she recently retired.

Together, we offer consulting, coaching, cermonies and counseling. Read less

Ron was very friendly and very professional. However he never responded to any of mine or my fiances emails or calls. It took my mom calling to get ahold of him. We met him and hired him a few months before the wedding while we were in town on one of our mass planning trips. But then when we met him again at the rehearsal he acted like he had never met us before and didnt even recognize me (the bride)!! But i let it slide seeing how it had been a few months, but then he wouldnt let the guys were sunglasses. The wedding was on the beach at 4!!!! And they all wanted to even the groom!! Major let down. However i let it go since it wasn't that big of a deal. But the one thing i cant let go is how the wedding ceremony ACTUALLY went. The day of the wedding he came to where we were taking pics to sign the wedding license and asked so your the bride. YA im in my wedding dress so that makes me the BRIDE!! I laughed it off hoping he knew who the groom was he didnt. Then when the ceremony started he didnt do ANYTHING like we had rehearsed, he didnt do the vows the way we wanted, WE NEVER EVEN SAID I DO, i dont even know how he managed that but he did. THEN he pronounced us man and wife and had us kiss BEFORE WE EVEN DID THE SAND CEREMONY OR FINISHED THE CEREMONY!!! And we are from sacramento but married in pismo so i told him MULTIPLE times my mom would turn in the license. After the wedding he was gone and so was the wedding license. IM STILL trying to get ahold of him to make sure he mailed it to the right place so i can change my name!

We were originally going to go with another minister but he had a family issue come up and was unable to do it. He recommend ron to us. I wish we would have kept looking. My wedding was flawless and perfect all except the ceremony!! Luckily only the wedding party and our parents and planner knew any different. But we get a lot of flack about having never said I DO!! I didnt let it ruin my day, but had i been a pickier bride or a bridezilla it would have. You've been warned.

Ronn was wonderful to work with on our destination wedding. He was very flexible when the rehearsal location had to change. He offered up several suggestions for the ceremony and also was able to easily incorporate a few requests from us. He did a wonderful job at the ceremony, even with the 105*+ weather. He added personal touches and made it seem like we knew him for years, even though we had never met! I would definitely recommend using him.

We had to find an offician in a pinch since our original minister was unable to perform the ceremony due to health issues. Ronn was wonderful and a grreat relief during a rather stressful but amazing time.

He gave us exactly the ceremony that we asked for and truly made our wedding day special. I sincerly recomend him to any bride who wants someone genuine and honest to perform your ceremony.
