  • There are not enough positive things to say about Richard Colonna. From the organization throughout the months leading up to the wedding, all the way through the professionalism of the actual wedding day, and even beyond, he was nothing short of outstanding. He makes you feel comfortable and calm throughout the entire process while ensuring that your ceremony will be EXACTLY the dream you are hoping it turns out to be. He even made light of a faulty microphone at our wedding and the ceremony did not even skip a beat. The care that he shows for his married couples, partnered with his ability to add a touch of humor into such an important day are just SOME of his qualities he will bring to your wedding day and the days leading up to it.

Thank you for making our day as perfect as we imagined it would be! - Jess & ... Read more
