Our officiant was Rev. Rick and he made the process extremely easy. He mapped out all of the legal requirements so we didn't have anything to worry about...even how to go about changing my name and links to various services to help. The ceremony was personalized and he was willing to work closely with us to make it just right. He was caring, professional and flexible. We couldn't ask for anything more. He was great!
Pastor Brian did a wonderful job!! He was great to work with. The ceremony was beautiful :)
Pastor Brian was more than we could have wished for on our special day. He was professional, friendly and prepared. He ensured the ceremony was perfect and impressed us every step of the way. He had fantastic recommendations for us during the planning phase and we could not be happier with the way things turned out. We highly recommend Pastor Brian for your big day! Thank You!
Pastor Chris Thomas,
I wanted to thank you again for performing such an amazing ceremony for us. You incorporated every sentiment we wanted in our ceremony. As Christians, it was important to us to let everyone know how God is the center of our union and you integrated that into our ceremony flawlessly. You made it personal to us. I cannot thank you enough for coming to our rescue on such short notice. After meeting you, we knew you were the perfect person to marry us. We loved your personality right away. The crowd enjoyed your words and Chris and I will cherish them forever. It was an honor to meet you and if you have a church, we would love to come hear you preach a sermon one day. We will definitely love to keep in touch.

I would highly recommend not only this vendor but this particular officiant for your wedding. I looked for a perfect officiant for the longest time and I found him. I was on a tight budget but trust me they are worth every penny! When it comes to your wedding you don't want to try and cut corners and just hire any old officiant, half of them have no idea what's important, and to me the ceremony is the most important part. I can say personally he was the most caring and helpful person. He was there every step of the way from when I hired him to the day of the ceremony. He not only helped me and gave me ideas to customize my ceremony to make it exactly what I've always wanted, but he was at my wedding helping organize the craziness and to help with getting everyone where they needed to be and he even helped my with my ring situation! It would've been a disaster if he hadn't helped like he did because he truly cared about us and not just getting money like most places. Thank you so much Rick you are amazing!
Pastor Brian Jones was our officiant for our wedding at The Lange Farm and he couldn't have been better! Pastor Brian was extremely responsive which was great being as we were out of state. He worked really well with us to create our perfect ceremony. He listened to all of the details that we wanted and really got to know us as a couple to make the ceremony personal. We are extremely happy to have had Pastor Brian officiate our wedding ceremony!
Rev. Rick and Sensational Ceremonies donated their time and services to participate in “Mission I Do”. My wife and I can’t say enough about how amazing the whole experience was with Rev. Rick and how smooth everything went. From the very first phone conversion we knew exactly what we were looking at and what kind of ceremony we wanted. From there Sensational Ceremonies provided us with a detail list on how most weddings breakdown and how to structure of ceremony to be personal to us. Once we completed the packet Rev. Rick put together our ceremony and sent it back for approval. The day of the wedding yet again Rev. Rick was simply amazing, he made both my wife and I feel completely comfortable and at ease. We would recommend him to anyone we know looking for a personal and great experience with their wedding.
My wife and I could not have found a better person to marry us. Rev. Rick Lakore was everything we wanted and more. He was a pleasure to talk with and was quick to respond to emails. He provided multiple ideas in creating the perfect ceremony for US. I (the DH) did not have any groomsmen, but having Rev. Rick standing there with me really aided in keeping me calm and collected while I waited for my bride to be. During the ceremony; he really helped us enjoy our moment as we became husband and wife. We felt very comfortable with Rev. Rick even though we only talked a few times, we felt very at ease with him. We could not have ever imagined it any other way. I would recommend him again and again and we hope he is around when we renew our vows in the future. Thank you!
We used Glynn Fergusen for our November wedding ceremony and he did an amazing job. We were able to tailor our wedding to our exact preferences, and make it a unique and personal ceremony. Glynn is a very personable, charismatic, and funny guy. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for officiant services for their wedding!
Reverend Rick Lackore made our wedding day just perfect! He was professional, and helped make our rehearsal the night before the wedding stress-free and quick! He was responsive and available for any questions/concerns that came up. I would highly recommend using him as your officiant
Your smile, laugh and great personality helped put my husband and I at ease on our special day. Thank you so much for being a part of it!
We contacted several vendors to conduct the services for our wedding ceremony. Sensational Ceremonies responded promptly to our inquiries and we were immediately referred to Rev. Rick Lackore who services the Tampa area. He handled the business end of it in a very professional manner. However, after deciding to meet with him we knew Rev. Rick was the only one we would want to conduct the service and set the tone for our ceremony. Rev. Rick was wonderful! He was a professional with a very personal touch! Sensational Ceremonies has so many options to choose from so your wedding can literally be written and personalized to your individual needs and wishes. But Rev. Rick was not only perfect to conduct my ceremony, he also took charge when the location vendor was late getting started. He looked out for our best interest knowing that, as the bride and groom, we were anxious to get the ceremony started promptly. Rev. Rick was WONDERFUL! We not only would recommend Sensational Ceremonies to everyone but we will also be utilizing their services for two more upcoming weddings in our family!
My husband and I had an amazing ceremony thanks to Rev Rick Lackore! We would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for an officiant. Rev Rick made the entire process a breeze from our first meeting to officially receiving our marriage license in the mail. He is such a sweet and caring person. Even when my husband and I were nervously fumbling in front of everyone at our ceremony, he knew the right things to say to keep everyone smiling and relaxed. I could not have asked for a better officiant! :)
Rick Lackore with Sensational Ceremonies did an amazing job at our Florida Aquarium wedding, hands down. From the get-go, he was very quick to respond to emails about our wedding and other questions we had. It was nice meeting him in person to go over the details of the wedding beforehand and have him go over how we could custom-design our own wedding. He truly made me feel calm and collected on our wedding day when I felt like my nerves were going to get the best of me. I can't thank him enough for making our wedding night so special and intimate. I would highly recommend Reverend Lackore to anyone getting married in the area!
Rev Rick Lackore was absolutely the best. My wife and I planned a very small, very short notice wedding because we didn't want big and that's what worked best for our schedule. Rev Rick was super accommodating. From the first phone conversations he was a delight and genuinely interested in our day and our happiness. He worked with us on the ceremonies words and was very easy to coordinate and work with. Rev Rick was punctual and presented a professional appearance. He was very organized and experienced and made the whole process and ceremony a breeze. Plus, he was all smiles and really made us feel at ease and comfortable despite such a short acquaintance. As a bonus, he was friends with our photographer Jill Kelly (also fabulous) which made our small little ceremony party seem very intimate. We would absolutely recommend Rev Rick.
Reverend Rick Lackore served as the officiant at our wedding. He came recommended to me by my photographer as being “the best of the best.” I most certainly agree. He did a wonderful job of making sure he went over every single detail for the most important part of our day. He was always quick to reply to any questions I had, he made the ceremony feel very personal, and he was a calming presence when we were filled with nervousness. During the rehearsal, he really made sure that we were comfortable and confident in what we had to do. He reminded us that if we stumble or forget anything at all, he would be there to remind us or repeat what we needed to do away from the microphone so it would be as unnoticeable as possible. Another thing that meant a lot was that he stepped out of the way for important photos such as our first kiss as husband and wife. He is a true professional, but he also makes sure every aspect of the day is personal for you. Everyone loved Rev. Rick at the wedding and we couldn’t have asked for more! I highly recommend him to make your day extra special.
Rev Rick was our officiant and he went above and beyond to make our little ceremony perfect. It was the most perfect day and he made us feel so comfortable. I can't put into words the joy of our day and we are glad he was apart of it
Pastor Chris Thomas was absolutely wonderful to work with!! He was professional, outgoing, well-spoken, respectful, knowledgeable, and absolutely hilarious, making the process behind creating our wedding ceremony words so much more fun and easy! He extended beyond his duties of just being our officiant by taking the time to visit with us and get to know us on a personal level, which was something extremely important to us, given his role in bringing us together as one. My husband and I are not religious, we're more spiritual, and one of our biggest concerns was if we could find someone who would be okay with those circumstances; Chris completely understood and respected our wishes to keep religion out of our ceremony and made us feel entirely comfortable doing so. He spoke clearly and rendered our words in a way that showed his interest and care for our coming together; he truly made our day so special!!
From the moment I first spoke to Rev. Rick Lackore, I knew that we had the perfect officiant!
As a destination couple (we are from Scotland and got married on Clearwater Beach, it meant so much to us how helpful Rev. Rick was, and how much guidance he provided us. He really went over and above what we expected, and was able to tailor make a ceremony for us. We were worried when we first started our wedding journey, that we would be given a 'one size fits all' experience, but this couldn't be further from the truth.
Rev. Rick really took an interest in us as a couple, and truly supported us from the very beginning. It also goes without saying that everything went perfectly on our big day.
Thank you Rev. Rick, we are so grateful for everything, and will be in touch when we are next in FL (hopefully soon!!).

Rev. Rick was given to us as a recommendation by our wedding venue, and we are so pleased that he was. From the beginning to the end, he was a delight to work with. He provided great communication with both my husband and myself, and made the process as smooth and easy as I had hoped it would be. Being that my husband and I are from Michigan, we were not able to actually meet with him, and had all of our concerns answered through e-mail or phone, which was no issue, because he was prompt in answering our requests and easing our worries, despite the miles between us. The day of our wedding we were so happy to meet him when he greeted us individually before the ceremony. He walked us through the ceremony (again, separately) so that we would be prepared, and made us feel comfortable and ready for the impending nuptials. It was easier than we expected it to be, and all because of the great service Rev. Rick provided us. We couldn’t be happier with our choice, and would recommend him to anyone.
