If you are looking for a Wedding Officiant who is more like your personal friend, then look no further. Pastor Rich Rubietta is the Officiant for you.
Pastor Rich was the best officant I could have asked for! I was planning a wedding in Chicago while living in another state. This provided the obstacle of not being able to immediately meet officiants in person. Pastor Rich was very flexible in being able to meet and my now husband because we would flying in from out of state (even offered us a ride to the airport). He was very friendly and provided us with a lot of very good ideas on how to how to incorporate our faiths into the ceremony (I’m Catholic and husband is Jewish). He was very happy to include any last minute changes to the ceremony program. He listened and addressed any concerns we had for the big day. I would happily recommend Pastor Rich to anyone looking for an officiant.
From the moment I first reached out to Pastor Rich I knew I had made the right decision. He was very quick to respond and extremely easy to talk with. I had a lot of questions on the order of the ceremony and working with him took one less stress out of wedding planning! We met Pastor Rich a few months before the wedding and he was able to learn about us as a couple. Our wedding was in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and Pastor Rich conducted THE MOST beautiful ceremony. He made the ceremony very personal and our guests were extremely impressed. I highly recommend Pastor Rich for your wedding ceremony!!!
