"Dear Richard,

Words cannot express how amazing you were on our wedding weekend!  Thank you so very much for making everything perfect.  You were a joy to work with from the start.  I couldn't have dreamed  of a better person to marry us and share our special day.  Thank you for being professional, kind, calm, informative, and an absolute joy to be around!  You are the best.  Sincerely, Alice and Lat"

"My wife and I contacted Weddings by Richard Burton for a quote and was blown away by his acceptance and his passion for making us a lawfully wedded couple! He was unable to perform our ceremony but his colleague, the fabulous Holly Stiel, was able to take over. From the moment Holly signed on to work with us she was patient, kind, and her only goal was to perform a beautiful ceremony for my now wife and me.  She took the time to get to know us, helped us pick our vows and the order of the ceremony. She offered suggestions that were great! The day of our wedding she was on time, kind, loving, and got us laughing and breathing at the the alter as my wife and I are both not in the center of spotlight people. After the ceremony she handled and mailed all of our paperwork priority mail. Within a week of getting married we had our official certificate!
I cannot recommend Weddings by Richard Burton and specifically Holly enough!"




Dan and I do not know how to thank you enough for all that you have done for us during this special time in our lives.  This has been the best week of our lives and you helped shape it in so many ways.  You are very special to us.  

Your friends,

Lucy and Dan"

"Dear Rick,

Where do I begin?

Jeff and I are so appreciative of the wedding ceremonies (!) you performed for us, in Mt. Pleasant, SC as well as Morehead City, NC!  They were so sincere and personal...You've become an important person in our lives in the last year.  Not to mention officiating my late aunt's memorial service!  It is our hope you will stay in touch and in our lives.  With love, Donna & Jeff"

(From Wedding Wire):

"Rick was absolutely outstanding!  From the very beginning, Rick was attentive, thoughtful and insightful.  He even helped us craft our vows.  Every base was covered and no stone was left unturned.  His attention to detail, professionalism, and passion for our wedding ensured us we made the right choice...We have recommended him to several friends and have also made a lifelong friend in Rick in the process! 

Emily & Larry"



"Dear Rick,

We cannot express our gratitude enough for all that you did to make our wedding so 

wonderful.  Your kindness and

warmth really made the day so special.  Your expertise and guidance were key to keeping me calm when trying to organize everything

from out of state.  

We look forward to seeing you when we return to Charleston.

Much love and gratitude,

Cheryl & Bob"
