She is wonderful
By far our most memorable person hired to contribute to our wedding is Gayle Smalley, our justice of peace. Gayle not only became our officiant for the day, she became a centerpiece that created a strengthening bond between us while at the alter. We had two very intimate and memorable sit-downs with Gayle in the comfort of her lovely home leading up to our wedding day. These two meetings meant the most to us because it allowed us to give Gayle the chance to understand more about us. A lot of people choose somebody close to them to officiate their wedding day because it makes it feel more intimate and personal. However, in these two short meetings, Gayle was able to get to know us and learn about our entire story in just two short visits you would have thought we were close family friends the way she spoke of us. Perhaps the best bit of feedback other than the beauty of the Lyman Estate’s venue, was our beautifully intimate and personal ceremony. Gayle was able to work closely with us to create the perfect fitting ceremony that brought our family and friends along for a short journey of how we met and how we came to be newlyweds. We want to take this time to thank Gayle for being a true blessing on our beautiful day, and we hope our words here lead Gayle to many more newlyweds to come!Sent on 07/07/2019

I wish it were possible to give 10 stars to Gayle. I hardly have the words to describe how incredible Gayle was to work with. We happened upon Gayle by a stroke of luck after the officiant we previously had chosen did not work out. Gayle was such a breath of fresh air. She alleviated all of our concerns and put us at instant ease; even with limited time before our wedding, she was calm, present, and encouraging. We got so many positive words about her from our guests, wedding party, and vendors. She is everything you want in the person marrying you and your soul mate.Sent on 12/15/2018

Knew she was perfect right when we met her.
It was an honor to have Gayle officiate our wedding in 2018. We are so grateful to have found her and knew we wanted her within the first few minutes of meeting at her home.Sent on 03/10/2019
The ceremony was an experience beyond what we could have imagined - for everyone. Our families raved about Gayle's ceremony and delivery, saying things like, "it was magical" and "the most romantic ceremony" they've ever attended. Because of how intimate and truly special it was for us, we decided to forgo another ceremony in Cartagena (we first had a small family-only ceremony and then was doing a larger wedding later). There is no way we could top what she did and evoke the same level of emotions in the room.
Gayle also helped us create a unique Spanish & English ceremony for both sides of our families to understand and take part in the wedding. That was the greatest gift.
Thank you Gayle for making our day one to remember.
