Elopement Weddings

If you want to have a small elopement-style wedding ceremony and you have already selected a venue, or if you want to marry in a private residence, public park or some other location that is not managed by Rich Events, we are able to provide officiating services. Please contact us to check availability before submitting a contract. 


Traditional Weddings

If you have selected a venue and would like to have Rev. Rich officiate your large traditional wedding ceremony, participate in your wedding ceremony rehearsal, and provide a full range of his services as your officiant, we may be able to provide officiating services, and we may be able to recommend one of our recommended wedding vendors. Please note that the majority of the ceremonies that Rev. Rich officiates are at one of the three Rich Events venues, so availability for off-property ceremonies is extremely limited. 

Wedding ceremonies in Tennessee require a Tennessee Marriage License. You may not bring a marriage license from outside Tennessee. Click here to visit the Davidson County Clerk. Please contact Rich Events to discuss availability for wedding officiant services. If we have availability, we will send you a link to complete the contract online, and then we would issue an invoice to collect payment online.   Calls/texts are welcome Monday through Saturday between 9:00 AM and 7:00 PM U.S. Central Time  and on Sundays between 2:00 PM and 7:00 PM U.S Central Time. Email us 24/7.
