  • Having a Catholic ceremony was very important to me when we got married, however my now husband was not religious and preferred to not be in a church... so we had to compromise. Bishop Richard came highly recommended to us and I am SO glad he did. Not only did I get my Catholic ceremony, but he came to our location and our marriage is now recognized in the Catholic Church. Bishop Richard was more than just an officiant though, he gave us great advice when it came to wedding planning, he set us up during the ceremony for pictures so not one moment was missed, and was someone great to just chat with. He truly put our minds at ease when it came to the big day. Our ceremony went smoothly thanks to him, and our guests had a lot of great things to say about Bishop Richard! He was by far, the best find out of all our wedding planning in my book!
