As we've been living together calling ourselves "husband and wife" for years, my wife and I wanted a "stealth" ceremony to make it legal, and Gina was up for it. She slipped into the restaurant as we were finishing dinner with the friends who introduced us, I introduced her as "Gina" and invited her to join us for a glass of wine, we toasted and then SURPRISE . . . she launched into the ceremony. 90 seconds later we were legally married. We are filled with gratitude that we could find Gina to do this for us. She was great, and we'll never forget her.

I was impressed with Gina from our very first meeting. She was patient, kind, professional and really listened to everything I had to say about the type of ceremony I wanted. She worked with me to craft the perfect ceremony and I appreciated her insights on the different options available. I felt completely taken care of and 100% confident that my special day was going to be as special as I always imagined it to be. And it was perfect! Thank you Gina for making my day memorable and seamless!

Ydalmi and I are so happy to have had Gina as our officiant! She has such a great, genuine, peaceful and warm energy. She has also been very helpful from beginning to end, and very accommodating. She made our day go very smoothly and made our ceremony better that we could have imagined.
