Rev. Ronald David Beams
we met Reverend Ronald Beams this weekend. he is seriously one of the nicest and sweetest persons ive met.. EVER! haha
he really paid attention when we met with him and was VERY welcoming. we knew off hand that he was MEANT to be our officiant!
we actually had a meeting in his home which was different and felt more intimate.. not creepy at all. lol
i highly recommend him! if i could give him more stars i would!
its after our wedding now.. and honestly im still sticking to what i mentioned above AND MORE! he was so genuine. everyone that attended our wedding LOVED him. he completely spoke from the heart and you can feel it in his words. ive been to many weddings where the reverend, priest, etc sounded heartless and sounded as if they just wanted to get it over with. he took his time.. and made the crowd laugh! we are so happy to have chosen him!
Could not have asked for anyone better.
Ron responded to all of my emails and questions. He was on time, super organized and so helpful. He filed our paperwork out quickly, and there was no issues.
For our ceremony, he was personal, intimate and made us feel like he was a ministeri that had known us for years.
The ceremony was beautiful and we were...
Amazing!!!! There is nothing less to say about him. He truly takes the time to know who you are and what you want. He took the things that were most important to us and showcased it in our ceremony. We had many of our guest come later to say what a wonderful job he has done. He was truly wonderful!!!
Amazing! Reverend Beams welcomed us into his adorable home to meet with us for the first time. He is not stuffy at all and not what I expected from a wedding officiant. He is non denominational in his services and works with you to tailor the ceremony to exactly what you want and feel comfortable with. The guests were so impressed with his very beautiful conduction of the wedding. Definitely hire this man!
Rev. Beams was wonderful to work with (and a great guy). He really took the time to get to know us before the ceremony (working with us long distance via Skype!) and helped us create a ceremony that felt like us. During the ceremony, he was warm, funny, and heartfelt in his words and we are so happy he was our officiant.
He is amazing! Being around him felt like being with a family friend. It was very comfortable, people thought that he must have knew us for years but this wasn't the case. His ceremony was beautiful, He came and met with me before the ceremony and even though I was a wreck I felt better knowing he was there.
We LOVE, LOVE Rev. Beams.
Prior to us booking Rev. Beams it was required that we meet with him in person. Which in today's day and age is very hard, but when choosing someone to facilitate your wedding you MUST meet with them in person to make sure you mesh well together.
When we first met with him, we instantly knew we had picked the right officiant for our wedding. He truly cared about us, and really listened to what we wanted for our ceremony.
We decided to go a more traditional route with a bible verse and traditional vows. However, Rev. Beams was not "preechy" as some would think. He was very lighthearted, genuine and very sincere.
Everyone raved on how much they loved our ceremony, but I don't think anyone could love it as much as my husband and I did.
Prior to the ceremony he went to visit me in the bridal suite, and I am SOOOO glad that he did. He made me feel so relaxed prior to the start of the "cry fest". =)
If any so-cal brides are looking for an officiant, you should at the very least consider Rev. Beams as he's the best out there!
I was extremely pleased with Rev. Ron Beams. I felt that he really wanted to get to know my husband and I in order to make our ceremony personal and meaningful. He is also a genuinely caring person and made us feel extremely comfortable during all our meetings. All of my guests told me that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever been too. I want to thank Rev. Beams for providing to us an amazing ceremony that meant so much and was exactly what we wanted.
Rev. Beams was a wonderful wedding officiant. As soon as we met him at his home, we knew he would be the perfect choice. He conducted the wedding ceremony in a way that was sincere and genuine, and his words were very heartfelt. We had the ceremony translated into Russian, and Rev. Beams was very comfortable and supportive of this choice, and worked well sharing the ceremony time with the translator. He also took the time to help us outline the ceremony and choose the readings and vows that were right for us. Many of my guests commented on what a wonderful job Rev. Beams did, and I would highly recommend him to everyone!!
honestly one of the nicest individuals i have EVER encountered. alllllll of our guests LOVED him. he made our ceremony REALLY special. he put his heart into what he would say.. and never came off as fake. he was sincere and funny. A+++
It is impossible to say enough good things about Reverend Beams. We were referred to him by a DJ (who we didn't use) and picking him as our officiant was the easiest choice in all of our wedding planning (it took each of us less than 5 minute after meeting him before we knew). Both my wife and I felt an instant connection to him and through the course of several pre-marital sessions grew quite close to him. He is one of the most genuine, caring, and insightful people you will ever meet. And he took a lot of time getting to know us, what made us unique, and the important parts of our relationship, our families, and our friends.
At the ceremony he kept me calm before the ceremony (no small feat), made everyone feel welcome, was funny and wise, and made the ceremony uniquely about us. Everyone I talked too at the wedding loved him (several said they wished that he had been their officiant) and I am sure we will be sending him holiday cards for the rest of our lives.
If you do select him as your officiant be sure to do pre marital sessions as well (as many as you feel you need)! Don't go in with the intention of just planning out your ceremony, because sessions with him can offer you so much more. First, and most importantly, he does a great job of helping you reflect on your relationship, both the strengths and challenges. I think he pointed out to my wife and I how we can work to make our marriage stronger. Second, he gets to know you better and it will make your ceremony all the more personal. Third, he is one of the easiest people to talk to you will ever meet and you will come out of the sessions understanding yourself, your future spouse, and your relationship much better.

All the brides that I have referred to him, always booked with him. He is very warm, funny, caring and you will always remember who officiated your wedding after meeting him!
