Richard Gauthier is true gems. We can’t say enough good things about him and neither could our guests! We received such positive feedback on the wonderful ceremony that he performed. From the moment we started the planning process, we felt at ease and like we were in the very best hands. He walked us through every step and made sure that we were always on track and fully understood the process. Richard gave us numerous sample ceremonies, he listened to what we wanted, and had no problem adapting the wording to align with our relationship. Through the entire ceremony his sense of humour and authenticity was exactly what we needed, and we forever grateful for him! If you are looking for a wedding officiant, you will not be disappointed with the service that Richard offers, he is truly amazing.
