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!
Our officiant was Rev Rick from Sensational Ceremonies. He was very professional, prompt and helped us to create a personalized wedding that was perfect. He made the entire process stress free by providing insight for preparing for our wedding . He made what could have been a stressful time, a very fun and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend using Sensational Ceremonies.
Reverend Rick Lackore from Sensational Ceremonies was fantastic. We contacted him on short notice to officiate our blended family wedding. Given the ceremony's complexity (my wife and I, and our four children all under 10 participated in the blended family vows) and having less than two weeks to prepare, he remained in constant contact to lead us in all facets and ensure everything was exactly as needed for the ceremony.
I don't like to use this word randomly, but I can honestly say our wedding went "perfectly". Our family and friends raved about how great and touching the ceremony was. All this was completely due to Reverend Rick's leadership, experience and personal attention.
Reverend Rick, you're one of the family now. Thanks again!

Rev. Rick Lackore officiated my wedding in Casey Key, Florida in July 2014. He was professional and helpful in all communications leading up to the wedding day. On the day of the wedding, he was friendly and kind. He did a great job making sure everyone knew what to do during the ceremony. He was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him without hesitation.
Reverend Rick Lackore is the epitome of officiant perfection, a true master of his trade. He helped us create vows that were absolutely perfect for us, calmed our nerves when we were on the brink of a potentially disastrous thunderstorm in the midst of our outdoor ceremony (everything worked out perfectly though) as well as gladly assisted with any questions that came up along the way. He went above and beyond to create a perfect wedding ceremony experience.
There are a TON of decisions a bride and groom will scrutinize over about their wedding day, this should not be one of them. Hiring Rev Rick is a no brainer.
Reverend Rick Lackore was our officiant from Sensational Ceremonies and he was simply incredible - we cannot speak highly enough of Rev.Rick.
He was extremely helpful throughout the vendor selection and provided us with video and documents in regards to choosing our Minister for our special day.
We are based in the UK and Rev.Rick was available whenever called upon with questions, despite the 5hr time difference.
We are so very grateful for the incredible service provided by Rev.Rick and we cannot recommend him highly enough. I hope this review will assist you in your selection and your day will be as special and memorable as ours was.

Rev Rick was incredible to work with, he completely exceeded our expectations! He is very professional and personable. He was easy to communicate with, which was very important for a destination wedding. We had a phone consult and went through all of the details and options for the ceremony which made us feel confident that everything would go smoothly. He provided us with a variety of different options for ceremony and told us that he would make the ceremony whatever our personal vision of the big day was. He was so organized during the months leading to our ceremony; he gave us information for ‘Married by Mail’ and even gave them our information which was very convenient. Every time we sent him an e-mail, we received a prompt response. We kept in touch until the big day! We loved that he had a relaxing sense throughout the ceremony, it helped keep my husband and I stay calm so we could enjoy our vows. The ceremony ran so smoothly and it was very unique, our guests had a lot of compliments afterward and thought that the ‘Seashell Ceremony’ was beautiful. I would not recommend anyone other than Rev Rick. Thank you Rev Rick for making our day so special!
Very pleased with Rev Rick Lackores ability to perform our ceremony at the Sandbar on Anna Maria Island. I must admit I was very nervous about his ability to perform without meeting him at first (we did not have a rehearsal) but I do not regret a thing! He did an initial phone interview with us since we live in Indiana and answered all my questions. He was very thorough and knew exactly what he was doing. He came on time and was very nicely dressed. I could not be happier with our choice. Thank you so much Rev Lackore.
Rev. Rick definitely made our day special. He provided us with the perfect ceremony with sincerity and kindness. He was helpful in recommending "Married By Mail" to take care of all the legal paperwork and documents and had them there before we arrived in Florida. He had many genuine ideas in preparing our vows and provided us with several ceremony options to meet our personalities. Thanks Rev. Rick for being a part of our special day!
Reverend Rick did a fantastic job with our St Pete Beach wedding. He helped us create a personalized ceremony and offered a lot of great suggestions and was very responsive to questions via email or phone. A little rain pushed our ceremony start time close to darkness but Rick's professionalism and control of the situation kept everyone calm---the ceremony was perfect and the storm even brought a double rainbow and a beautiful sunset. Rev Rick was great to work with and I would recommend him to anyone!
Pastor Brian was wonderful. After a last minute scheduling conflict with Pastor Vincent, we were very pleased that we got to work with Pastor Brain. He was very responsive and so great to work with. When I asked him to do a prayer with my bridesmaids right before the ceremony, he did not hesitate. My husband and I are so happy with our beautiful ceremony. We highly recommend him. Thank you Pastor Brain.

Rev. Rick was a pleasure to work with throughout our wedding planning process. He is professional, organized, responsive, kind, and, most importantly, reliable! He comes with a wealth of experience and helped put us at ease throughout the process. When the nerves kicked-in on the big day, Rev. Rick was a calming force. He was reassuring and right there with us every step of the way. We can't thank Rev. Rick enough for playing such an important role in our wedding!
Sensational Ceremonies was one of the best decisions made throughout our wedding planning process. Rev. Rick was organized, professional, caring and made planning the wedding ceremony incredibly easy. We were able to customize our ceremony to fit our beach wedding theme and were able to personalize it exactly to our liking with a variety of different wedding word options and other unique elements to choose from. Planning a Florida destination beach wedding from Chicago had its challenges, but this was not one of them. Both my fiancé and I were incredibly pleased with the personalized service, prompt email communication, even a conference call to confirm all details prior to the wedding. I would absolutely recommend Sensational Ceremonies to anyone!
From the beginning we were impressed with Pastor Brian. Throughout our planning process he offered great suggestions and was extremely responsive, fun and easy to work with. We had so many compliments from our guests on how warm, sincere and beautifully stated our ceremony was. It was obvious to everyone that the personal attention, time and care that he gave us made our ceremony a most beautiful and memorable one...one that we will never forget. Our day was simply perfect thanks to Pastor Brian!

We were super pleased with Rev. Rick Lackore from Sensational Ceremonies! He was absolutely great. I received so many comments about the ceremony and Rev. Rick made us feel so comfortable. I appreciate his professionalism and positive demeanor. Thank you so much! We would definitely recommend him as your officiant.
We found our officiant as a referral from our wedding planner, Kimberly Hensley, who uses Rev Rick for most of her weddings. He was professional, answered all of our questions, had beautiful ceremony excerpts to choose from and made our wedding day so complete. The additional sound system package was wonderful so our guests could hear what we were saying on the windy beach. We would highly recommend him to officiate a ceremony!
I wanted to personally thank Rev. Rick for doing more than an amazing job in creating a one of a kind, unforgettable wedding for my husband and I! From the moment we met him, we were welcomed with the positive ideas and philosophies that are associated with marriage. He was on time, professional, and warm hearted. Rev Rick took time to get to know the two of us; creating a lasting impression of someone who loves what they do and are truly compassionate about what they do. While he listened to our story and our desires, he also let us in on his family, and most important how him and his wife are still happily married and very much in love. Prior to our wedding day he sent us more than one hundred different options for us to choose from to personalize our wedding so that it was really exactly what we wanted; he sent back a final copy for approval and it was perfect. During the planning process I was also in need of a DJ and Videographer; he sent me some of his personal references and was even to help me to cut some deals so that it could fit into my budget! The day of the ceremony he arrived with a big smile on his face, reassured me of the events that were about to occur, and even how to stand for the perfect pictures. Throughout the entire ceremony he had a genuine smile and lead us through the best day of our lives. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect! I cannot wait until we have a ten-year vow renewal so that he can come back and do it again! I recommend him to anyone that is in need of someone to do his or her wedding ceremony! He was phenomenal!! Thank you for everything Rev Rick! Love Sarah and Gainus Scott!!
Rev. Rick officiated our beach ceremony at the Hilton Clearwater Beach last month! We was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole process. We met with him a few months out to get to know Each other and we able to select our ceremony music. He kept in touch and was extremely organized while we chose our ceremony and vow options. I felt like I had absolutely nothing to worry about when I came to the ceremony throughout the wedding planning process! Our guests paid him many compliments thought the evening!
