It has been my privilege to share in the joy of officiating almost 2000 weddings for couples who represent a wide cross section of backgrounds, beliefs and cultures. I say to every couple, “getting married is the biggest decision you will make in your lifetime, so let’s make this moment what you want it to be, a meaningful and personal ceremony celebrating your commitment.” I have been an ordained, nondenominational minister for many years, and I feel that your ceremony should reflect your story, hearts and lives. There are many wonderful options and creative ideas we can discuss together that can be utilized to make your ceremony unique and memorable. If there was one statement I hear from couple’s families and friends at the conclusion of my ceremonies it is, “this was the most meaningful and inspiring ceremony I’ve ever attended.” I would welcome the opportunity to sit down together with you, get acquainted, listen to your story, review your thoughts for your ceremony, and much more. In the meantime, please visit my web site for complete details about my services.

Beware. Mr. Beams was the so called pastor at our wedding. First of all, he was over an hour late. When he finally arrived he made no apologies then had the nerve to make us all wait even longer while he had a drink. I’m positive it wasn’t his first drink that day, he pinched my poor maid of honor’s behind the rest of the day. I could continue with negative remarks…Save your money and your maid of honor’s butt literally!

Rev. Beams made our ceremony amazing!

5/ 5

Working with Rev. Beams was a dream. He is professional, prepared, very accommodating of what we wanted for our ceremony, and a total sweetheart. He has a great sense of humor and solemnity and balanced both perfectly. So many people came up to us during the reception just to tell us how much they laughed and cried and absolutely loved him. He made our ceremony absolutely amazing, and I can’t thank him enough.

Could not ask for a more perfect ceremony

5/ 5

Rev. Ron Beams was truly amazing. He met with us and went over all of the details for our custom ceremony that was exactly what we imagined it would be and much more. All of our guests raved about Rev. Ron Beams and his amazing special touches he added. We could not have asked for a more perfect ceremony!

Everyone loved our ceremony – especially us!

5/ 5

Rev. Ronald David Beams caught my attention from the first moment we spoke at a wedding faire. The way he presented himself was like no other and I knew I wanted him to officiate our wedding. My husband and I met at his home and we learned about each other – – us as a couple, individuals, our families, and about himself as an Officiant and what that means to him. After learning more about him we definitely knew we wanted him to marry us, and it was an honor that he did. He worked with us to personalize our ceremony, given that my husband is a Seventh Day Adventist and I am Catholic. We did not get married in a church but we wanted our ceremony to be as religious as possible and Rev Beams made sure that is exactly what we got. Our ceremony was not your typical 5-10 minute ceremony; he read Bible scriptures that we chose, told our story of how we met, and others as well, and incorporated our families and friends and all our guests into the ceremony. It was very personalized, it was all about us and who we are as a couple and what we represent, and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding. Every single one of our guests said how beautiful (and funny) our ceremony was and they loved how he officiated it. Most guests even said that their favorite part of our wedding was the ceremony! No one ever feels that way! But that is how amazing he is! Thank you Rev Beams for being a part of our very special day!

Really great!

5/ 5

Rev Ron was the officiant at our wedding. We met a few times prior to our wedding to get to know one another. We really enjoyed our time with him. You feel comfortable right away and he can make you laugh within the first 20 minutes of speaking to him. He arrived early and did a great job with our ceremony, everything ran very smoothly. Thank you, Rev Ron!

A perfect balance!

Reverend Ron Beams was completely professional and casually friendly at the same time, always in perfect balance. Every part of our ceremony was comfortable and came off without a hitch.

Fantastic from start to finish

5/ 5

Reverend Ron was fantastic, from start to finish. We feel so lucky that we found him! From the very beginning, he was incredibly kind and thoughtful. He was quick to reply to every email, and very flexible when it came to meeting. We met with him twice, and after each time my wife and I remarked how happy we were to have him as our officiant. Reverend Ron took great care to make our ceremony what we wanted. He offered some suggested readings as a starting point, but stressed that we could change anything we wanted. He also gave us some marriage preparation; it’s clear that he wanted to prepare us to build a lifelong happy marriage. The day of the ceremony, Reverend Ron asked me if we had sent the story of how we met (to tell during the ceremony), because he triple-checked his email and couldn’t find it. My heart sank — we had never even written it! Reverend Ron was an absolute professional, and asked me to recite it for him while he jotted some notes. He nailed it. My wife had no clue this happened until I told her the next day, in fact, everybody thought he had rehearsed it! The entire ceremony was great, I had numerous people tell me that the officiant was fantastic. He really has a gift for building a rapport with a crowd. It would have been nice if he had reminded us to send our story to him, to avoid the little bit of stress right before the ceremony. I really want to emphasize, though, that he made up for it — he probably did even better with the last-minute brief than if we had emailed him something. If you’re considering Reverend Ron — email him right now. You absolutely will not regret it.

Great customized ceremony!

5/ 5

Reverend Beams was the officiant for our wedding ceremony in Tiburon. Before the ceremony he took the time to get to know us, explain the marriage certificate process, and worked with us to form a ceremony that fit our personalities and personal values. He did a great job at the ceremony! He was warm, personable, and took care of the license details afterwards.

Wholeheartedly endorse!

5/ 5

Reverend Ron Beams officiated at our wedding in August ‘12. He was like an addition to the family! Ron is professional yet personable and made our ceremony special. We had a backyard luau-themed wedding and he was more than willing to dress the part. We even threw some Hawaiian vocabulary he needed to say and he was successful! A blessed memory for all, thank you Rev. Beams!! We wholeheartedly endorse Reverend Ron Beams for your special day!

Strongly recommend!

5/ 5

I am so pleased I decided to use Reverend Beams to officiate my wedding! He was kind, honest, and fun to work with during the planning stages. He made sure we had everything exactly how we wanted and was willing to think outside the box and be flexible. Many people came to me after the ceremony to praise his work! He had a way of engaging the audience and was funny when appropriate and serious when that was what was needed. I simply can’t recommend him strongly enough!

Grateful for Rev. Beams

5/ 5

We cannot thank Reverend Beams enough for his warmth, guidance and professionalism through the marriage “process”. We call it a process because he did not simply show up at our wedding and leave, as many officiants do. Rather, we met with him in advance and he got to know us, which made our wedding ceremony more personalized. He had good suggestions for the ceremony, and was open to our suggestions at well. He also provided instruction regarding the logistics, such as the deadlines and the paperwork for obtaining a marriage license. Often at weddings, people comment about the reception only. For us, they also commented about the lovely, heartfelt service. There are few instances in life that are as memorable as your wedding day. We are so grateful to have shared our day with Rev. Beams.

Thank you Pastor Beams

5/ 5

I was referred to Pastor Beams by a close friend who said “If I had known Ron 20 years ago when I got married I would have had him marry us”. Unfortunately we learned he would be living in Sacramento by the time we got married. Fortunately he was going to be down here that weekend and agreed to marry us. After spending 10 minutes with him you will know you found you minister. We spent time before the wedding so that he could get to know us and it truly felt like he was a friend by the time we had the ceremony. His service was beautiful and I would recommend him to anyone looking.

Review Title

5/ 5

Looking for somebody to officiate our wedding was a bit of a worry because we come from different religions but we were very blessed when we found Rev. Beams. He made a huge impression on us since the first time we met him. A very sweet, gentle and caring person. Our ceremony was AMAZING because of him; Rev. Beams made everybody welcomed, and we received positive feedback from our friends and families asking who he was or where we found him because they loved how he celebrated our ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for more …. A HUGE THANK YOU Rev. Beams for making our ceremony unforgettable.

Perfect!

5/ 5

Rev. Beams is amazing! We had a destination wedding up in Sonoma and needed to find an officiant who lived near there. Reverand Beams is professional, kind, and officiated a wedding for us that was personalized. We couldn’t have been happier and feel so lucky to have found him!

Highly recommend!

5/ 5

Rev Ronald David Beams was our officiant for our wedding in July. We met with him a few times before our wedding to get to know each other. He is a very warm and friendly man who I felt became a friend of ours and not just our officiant. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family. Thank you for being a part of our special day!!

Everything we could have hoped for!

5/ 5

Working with Ron was everything we could have hoped for. He made our ceremony feel just as we wanted – personalized, tender, warm, and full of laughter and joy. As this was a multi-faith wedding, he was able to pay respect to each, representing the needs of both faiths, without making one overshadow the other. All in all, I cannot recommend him enough.
