We were extremely happy with every aspect of our ceremony. We were truly pleased with Robin, she is kind, professional and has a wonderful ability to tailor the ceremony to your exact specifications. Robin is one of the most delightful people we have ever worked with, we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officant. I truly cannot imagine anyone would do a better job!
We are so happy we found Robin! We were starting from very square one in our ceremony planning and she sat with us and learned about us, and enthusiastically explained the ceremony arc to us in a way that helped us plan a really meaningful and personal ceremony. We have gotten so many compliments on our ceremony and her presence - her style was fabulous and created a connection with us, and with the guests that was exactly what we wanted - to get everyone present and getting meaning out of the ceremony. She was great!!
Robin was such an amazing find when we planned our spur-of-the-moment January wedding. We were planning from California for a Chapel Hill wedding and Robin worked so well with us via e mail to create a wonderful, personalized, beautiful ceremony. She was able to incorporate poetry wishes and traditions like a ring warming so that it felt special. It was fantastic!!
Robin is an absolute pleasure to work with. Our ceremony was a short-notice change of plans from an original intention to go to the Courthouse. With Robin's patience, guidance, and flexibility, along with her host of resources which she openly shares, a very nice private ceremony was organized in a couple weeks. Even without a rehearsal, the service was beautiful, stress-free, and expertly conducted. We appreciate Robin's comfort and warmth. We are very pleased overall.
We had our wedding ceremony in downtown Raleigh at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences and all of our guests genuinely loved it. In preparation for the big day, Robin was exceedingly patient in our back-and-forth and helped us create a ceremony that we truly loved. Though we were indecisive and slow with replying to her emails at times, she was a wealth of creative ideas. On the wedding day, she put everyone at ease and helped us to stay calm and really enjoy the ceremony. Robin, while very professional, exudes positive energy, and smiling, laughing guests were exactly what we wished for. We could not have asked for a better wedding officiant.
Robin has a warm personality and a lot of poise, which made our ceremony appealing and helped us stay calm when up at the altar. Even more important, she allowed us to write our own ceremony using her "Big Book" of ceremony excerpts plus our own original vows. We emailed it to her, and she offered ideas without pressuring us to change it at all. Robin happily and skillfully delivered it just as we had written. We couldn't imagine a better wedding minister and strongly recommend her to everyone, regardless of the message you want your ceremony to have.
Robin you are amazing. Scott and I feel blessed to have you marry us. You were sweet and genuinely happy for us. You can tell you love what you do. You kept everything moving at the right pace. You have a special place in our hearts. Thank you isnt enough. Your an angel.
Robin Renteria was a fantastic officiant for our intimate wedding ceremony! Robin assisted us with planning and designing our own ceremony which was tailored specifically to us and really exemplified who we were as a couple. Robin also had some unique ideas including a ring warming ceremony and unity wine ceremony which we were quick to add to our program. It was very evident that Robin is passionate about her work and truly strived to make our wedding day extra special. She was absolutely wonderful and fulfilled above and beyond our expectations. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fabulous officiant!
Robin officiated our wedding in downtown Raleigh on Saturday, November 17th 2012. From start to finish Robin was a delight to work with. She was open to personalizing our ceremony so that it fit us perfectly. She is extremely responsive, and provides a comprehensive wedding ceremony workbook (authored by Robin, herself) that walks a married couple-to-be through every step of the ceremony. The workbook and questionnaire were extremely helpful in decided exactly how we wanted our ceremony to flow, and reflect us as a couple. We let Robin know what we wanted to include, and she formulated an amazing ceremony. Many of our guests commented that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever attended. Robin is warm, her voice projects warmly, and she is very professional. Many thanks to her for marrying us!
Robin was absolutely amazing. She had so many options for the ceremony design and made making our ceremony personal SO easy. There was a special uniqueness about her delivery and her care really came through in the delivery. All of our guests commented on how beautiful and smooth the ceremony was, and they LOVE how Robin would pause to let everyone savor in the moment. It could not have been better, and Robin is so much to thank for that!
Robin was wonderful to my Fiance as well as my entire family. This was not my first marriage and I wanted it to be special. We found Robin through our Wedding Planner (Katherine Katz*wonderful too) and from the start she put us at eaze. She provided us with her wedding book which allowed us to choose the style and format that we wanted. We had a simple wedding in a hotel. We met her in person as well as communicated via e-mail until everything was just as we wanted. I really liked that she had us fill out a sheet so that she could tell our guests, in her own words what attracted us to each other as well as our hopes for our future together. She expresses such joy in what she is doing that just listening to her speak moved me to tears. I would recommend her to anyone.
Robin was absolutely fantastic - she was responsive, kind and comforting from our very first interaction. She allowed us to craft our own personal ceremony and accommodated our own ideas.
She was an absolutely invaluable help on the day of - coordinating details of the ceremony, giving tips about nerves, and making our ceremony truly heartfelt.
Her delivery was just perfect for our intimate ceremony and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a personalized and sentimental wedding!
Robin is amazing! She is extremely thorough and helped my husband and I create a ceremony that was tailored specifically for us. She had so many resources and was very helpful along the way. She performed a beautiful and wonderful ceremony for us and my friends and family commented many times on how wonderful she was as well.
Rev. Renteria was exactly what we were looking for to complete our small non-denominational family wedding. She was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process by providing a full range of examples as well as offering suggestions based on her experience and skills. She was there to encourage us when needed and gave us space to complete all the other important wedding tasks. I would definitely recommend her.
Robin was THE BEST. Not only did she put together a beautiful ceremony that was perfect for my husband and me, she was was invaluable as a source of calm for my entire family. The day of the wedding, the rain got in the way of our outdoor ceremony and the Reverend kept in touch with my Dad (he was the designated contact for the day) and was able to assure him that the indoor space would be just as nice and even more intimate. Robin radiates a calming, loving presence and she made sure we were mentally present and fully prepared for the ceremony. She put together a meaningful ceremony and was very gracious about making changes. My husband and I are more spiritual than religious and she was able to tailor a ceremony that felt fairly traditional but without mention of God. I would HIGHLY recommend her to any couple- she is amazing!
Robin helped us make a meaningful and personal ceremony for our wedding! It was perfect and it reflected our personalities and our relationship! She was so helpful for the full year of planning. She was very responsive and easy to get in touch with. I HIGHLY recommend her to every bride!
If I could give Robin 6 stars I would because without her guidance, I don't believe my husband and I would have had a wedding ceremony at all, much less such beautiful one. Robin guided us through planning the ceremony from the very first time we contacted her up until the arrival of the big day. She helped us plan a ceremony that was both beautiful and stayed true to us as a couple, even with our major time and money constraints. The ceremony she lead for us on our wedding day was beautiful, her delivery was engaging, and her warm presence eased our nerves and set the perfect tone. Robin is a true professional that will go above and beyond to ensure that your wedding is exactly what you want it to be. Any couple who chooses Robin to officiate their wedding can rest assured that it will turn out wonderfully because she the absolute best at what she does.
We found Robin through her website and were a little skeptical letting someone we met on the internet marry us, but in the first moment we met her we KNEW that she would be perfect! She connected to both of us and that was really important to us. We met several times over the course of pre-marital counseling and got to know her. Together we customized our ceremony to fit us and then Robin rounded it out with bits of personalization that was perfect. We really wanted the ceremony to be meaningful and memorable for us, but so many people said they really loved our ceremony too. In addition, she helped coordinate our wedding party during the rehearsal and the day-of. If your family is anything like ours, her experience was extremely helpful!!
If you're looking for a reverend who is kind, experienced, professional yet warm, and who will make your ceremony personalized, look no further than robin. She made our small ceremony extraordinary; our guests kept saying how lovely and personal it was. We met robin in person once before our wedding and kept in touch with her via email which was great throughout all our busy planning. She makes everything easy and helps get rid of stress on your day.
Rev. Renteria was a joy to work with from the start. She was open to our suggestions and supported us in crafting a ceremony that was a reflection of what we wanted to share with friends and family that day. She was a grounded and reassuring presence on the day of our ceremony and helped us both feel at ease throughout the process.
