Amazing!!!

If you’re looking for someone fun but serious about what they do. Book Gail!!! I was looking online for someone to marry my husband and I. It worried me because I wanted someone who would take the ceremony seriously but someone who would make everything feel less nerve wrecking and heartwarming. Someone who wouldn’t just marry us to marry us and read word per word with a “let’s get over this already” attitude. Well I found Gail on a website called Wedfolio I believe, there were a couple that I showed interested in but Gail’s way of approaching me and making everything seem okay especially during these times of this pandemic, made me feel comfortable enough to continue discussing my options with her. Someone else’s first question was well are you worried about a ceremony with about 30 people in a house during this pandemic? Like seriously? Are you here to marry me or to judge me? Gail did not make me feel that way at all. She made every conversation fun but made it clear to me or everything I’d need. She made sure I had my marriage license first and prepared me for my wedding day. If you book Gail you will not regret it. She’s very personable and motherly like and at the end of the day, you want someone who is genuinely happy to marry you, not someone who will do it for the money or because it’s there job. Gail truly loves what she does!!!

Her prices were reasonable and scripts were sent in a timely manner!!

Thanks for everything Gail!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Dependable and Delightful Officiant, worth every penny!

Getting ready for the wedding felt like a daunting task, but fortunately, a friend recommended Gail to us. From the moment we connected with her, we knew right away that she was the perfect choice to officiate our special day. Gail exuded friendliness and professionalism throughout the entire process. Her approach made the experience enjoyable, and she crafted a ceremony that was both heartfelt and fun. We are immensely grateful to you, Gail, for making our wedding so memorable. I'm glad my friend recommended you! Thank you, Gail, for being the one to officiate our wedding—we couldn't have imagined anyone else in that role!

Highly recommend!

I’m so glad we chose Gail to officiate our wedding! She got to know us and wrote a wonderful ceremony tailored to us. We wanted a lighthearted, short and sweet ceremony and she totally delivered. It was sweet with moments of laughter and just what we wanted.
