Thank you for making our day very special. I doubt we could have ever had a better officiant. We felt like we were with an old friend and when we remember April 12th you will always be included in that memory.

We want to thank you for making our wedding such a fantastic occasion, you made the day. We appreciate you putting so much thought into composing our vows and even having never met us we feel as though he said all of what we wanted to say to each other.

All of our family and friends have commented how great you were on the day, adding a personal element to the service.

It was fantastic of you to take the time to join us after the ceremony at the Chelsea Pines Inn.

In other words, we can’t thank you enough!

The Reverend Ron Sheppard created a wedding ceremony that was rich in personal acknowledgement toward my husband and myself.His loving nature and warm spirit were very soothing on our big day.

His acceptance of all people regardless of any difference they may exhibit is astounding, and frankly very refreshing.

His delivery of the sermon and blessing was nothing short of amazing.He built a foundation for our future with his thoughtfully written benediction.

I would recommend Rev Ron for anyone who wants to be treated well by their wedding officiant..
