Gail is the best!

Gail is absolutely incredible! I was so overwhelmed when looking for an officiant, and her talent and expertise were apparent throughout the planning process and on the day of our ceremony.

After our initial call, all of my questions were answered and she went above and beyond to help me prepare! She was warm-hearted and so knowledgeable. We really couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Thank you, Gail!

Make Gail Olberg your Wedding Officiant, you won’t regret it!

I truly cannot say enough great things about Gail! From the first time we spoke to the wedding day, she was absolutely wonderful!

She was incredibly thorough during the consultation and answered many of my questions before I even had a chance to ask them! Prior to my interview with Gail, my husband (still feels weird to say) and I discussed the traditional vows and though we wanted them to stay traditional we also weren't comfortable with some of the phrasing (honor and obey). I was nervous about asking for this change but before I could even bring the topic up Gail explained that though she kept the vows traditional she substituted/removed certain phrases, one being "honor and obey". For her to already be on the same page as us made our decision to hire her clear from the start and I don't think a better decision could've been made.

She was polite, prompt and the vows she gave during the ceremony were absolutely beautiful! It's clear when you interact with Gail that it's her true passion to marry people. The way she speaks about it, the enthusiasm she shows, she simply loves, well, love! Working with someone who loves what they're doing so much is a wonderful feeling.

I recommend Gail to any and every couple looking for an incredible marriage officiant. You will not be disappointed in the amazing service that she provides!

Great overall experience

Gail was exactly what we were looking for in our marriage ceremony. She followed what we wanted and gave her own input as well for what she thought would work best. She is organized and thorough. she made sure everything we understood the whole process of getting our marriage license and what we needed to bring to her. Would absolutely recommend!
