    A beautiful day...

    7.31.20…A day that will forever be remembered as the start to our forever. I am Tonya and I married my love, Monte, on this date. We had a virtual and magical ceremony officiated by Aretha Gaskin, Weddings By Aretha, on this day. It would be an understatement to say Aretha is the best. Aretha is a blessing!!!

    In a short time, she got to know Monte and I, ensuring our wedding would be just about us and our wishes for this day. I reached out to Aretha just 3 weeks before, after searching for an officiant online in our area. Immediately after talking with her, we knew Aretha Gaskin was a “GODsend” and our choice to getting married in these challenging times. Monte and I planned to marry last May and celebrate with close friends in Jamaica. With Aretha’s help and day of coordination, we married and celebrated with more family and more friends over Zoom. Aretha welcomed everyone individually to our Zoom wedding, spoke beautiful words to myself and my groom during the ceremony, and made sure all of our guests had a chance to toast and share their well wishes.

    If you want to do something different when you get married, contact Weddings By Aretha.

    I am so glad we did!!!

    Everything was PERFECT!!

    Aretha was a true pleasure to work with. From the beginning she was professional, very kind with a genuine desire to make her couples day extra special. Whenever we were unsure of something, she would offer suggestions to help guide us. She listened to what we wanted and created a beautiful ceremony that we will cherish forever. She was open to customization and created a warm and wonderful ceremony. If you want someone who listens, genuinely cares, and is also very professional – please consider her as your Officiant. You won't regret it! We are so happy we chose her for that very important time in our lives.

    I’ve met a lot of Wedding Officiants in my career as a DJ but by far, Aretha is definitely at the top of my list as the Officiant I will be recommending to future clients. She is very personable and knows how to engage with people. She is fantastic during the ceremony, makes the couple and their guests laugh which helps to make the mood less stressful. Aretha is also very professional and just very easy to work with. If you’re planning your wedding and looking for an excellent Wedding Officiant, I HIGHLY recommend Aretha.

  • Spynfo & Mr. Matrimony Entertainment Wedding DJs

    When you've been in the wedding market for over 15 years like I have you come across many officiants. it takes a true professional to bring insight, humor and reflection during a couples most sacred moments. Aretha's words and positive energy add a special touch to every ceremony that I've worked alongside her. She sets a great tone for the day and that is crucial for any wedding! She is by far the best at what she does! I love her and you will too!

  • Gourmet Celebrations

    Aretha is a fantastic Wedding Officiant! Her ability to beautifully deliver your ceremony on your wedding day and the care that she takes with every couple leading up to the wedding, is the hallmark of a true professional. If you’re able to book Aretha (she’s booked up months in advance!) do it! You’ll be happy you did.
