    The Must Have Wedding Officiant!

    Aretha Gaskin made our wedding ceremony unforgettable! Wedding planning can be the most stressful and scary task to undertake. Choosing the right vendors is crucial to having the perfect day. Some people will say the officiant isn't that important of an investment in the grand scheme of your wedding day, or that choosing an officiant can wait until later in the planning stages – that couldn't be further from the truth.

    Hiring Aretha as our officiant was worth every penny, and I wish we had booked from the first day we began planning. We contacted her through her website, to which she promptly responded and set up a telephone consultation. The conversation lasted over an hour because she was so personable. We hired her that same day.

    From that day forward Aretha was always available to answer any questions and offer guidance not only for the ceremony, but for the entire wedding process. We eventually added Aretha’s rehearsal services; it's a must do. Aretha is so professional and meticulous. She runs a tight ship so nothing will be out of place. She was able to point out things to our venue about setup and placement that would have definitely been overlooked.

    We asked for a very simple ceremony format. She delivered just that, and it was still unique and very classy. The vows she crafted for us were so beautiful and reflective of our personalities, as though we had written them ourselves, or she had known us for years. Our guests enjoyed our ceremony and raved about our vows and the sophistication of our nuptials.

    Aretha's process is amazingly thorough; we had only to follow her lead and our wedding ceremony was sheer perfection. Also taking her advice for the rest of the wedding helped to make the rest of the celebration as magical and memorable as the I do's!

    The best officiant out there- hands down

    ’m not sure how we found Aretha, but we were so grateful when we did. The way she carries herself I assumed she was a celebrity. She’s sophisticated and so elegant through her videos and pictures. After reviewing how she officiated other weddings, I felt that this is what we wanted too. It was like having a friend or a close friend of the family officiate your wedding.

    I’ll be honest, Aretha’s services may appear expensive. It is. You can easily find any officiant that will charge you $200-$400 and you’re happy because you saved some money BUT trust me, after you go to Aretha’s website and watch her videos, you will see that she is worth every penny.

    She’s personable. I remember our first officiant didn’t even ask how we met or the proposal. Aretha asked about that and more! Consulting with Aretha is like interviewing for your love biography. She asks you deep questions and seems to really care about creating a personalized story for your friends and family. She follows up and is helpful when needed. She is definitely worth every penny and so much more. Family and friends are still talking about the ceremony. If you’re on the fence book her now. You won’t regret it.

    Thank you Kay! From our initial consultation to the months of planning, and then all the way to your rehearsal and ceremony, you two have been an absolute pleasure to work with! Thanks for having me and best wishes for a lifetime of love and happiness.

    The most intimate and beautiful wedding ceremony!

    Aretha officiated our wedding on 10/12/18. I wanted a wedding officiant who understood my vision and took careful time to get to know me. Aretha did that and so much more! She is simply amazing!!! Aretha is very professional, kind, and knowledgeable. She is also a woman of color and presents herself in a very dignified manner. It was important to me to have someone with experience working with other LGBTQI couples. Fortunately, Aretha has that experience and mentions it on her website! Aretha begins the process with a free consultation (which I thought was a great idea for anyone skeptical or lacking officiant knowledge). The consultation included a short interview on our love story and our ceremony vision. During this consultation, Aretha thoroughly explained her services and what made them unique from many other officiants. Aretha's work is very personalized and intimate. She spent time creating the ceremony of our dreams! Aretha's soothing presence helped to calm our nerves. Her guided instructions during the months prior helped to create such a flawless day. Everything was prepared; we did not have to worry about a thing! She even helped us compose our ceremony programs which we were incredibly thankful for. I truly cannot thank her enough, we still have our wedding guests complimenting our ceremony and sharing how thoughtful and personal each moment was. Thank you for everything Aretha!
