It's hard typing an "About Us" when the fact of the matter, for me, it’s just NOT about me (or us)... It’s about YOU and what you envision in a perfect ceremony. I am very fortunate to have already met so many wonderful couples, their family and friends, and reuniting with some lifelong friends.
I welcome the opportunity to get to know who you are and what your vision for one of the most important days (moments) in time. I provide a service for people that is positive and uplifting. It is an honor to be a part of when two people publicly, vocally, legally, and emotionally profess their love and commitment to each other, their God, family, friends, and sometimes complete strangers. I enjoy being with people at their happiest and this "job" (NO WAY) is a great opportunity to live that and meet really wonderful people.
There are many options for getting married... you can go the church/temple/synagogue or you can go to the Courthouse... I see my service as meeting you halfway in between. Pick a place... whether along the many vast miles of pristine shore line of the Atlantic Ocean in MD, DE, or VA, private resort/venue, the many scenic spots along the Chesapeake Bay region, private home, or paddling out at sunrise in the surf... wherever you can image, again, I welcome the opportunity. If you don't know where to start, well that's ok too! I have vast resources of experienced, professional, and reputable venues/vendors that can help achieve your expectations.
Thanks for reading!

Rev Giz is excellent. His ability to create a calm, happy and fun atmosphere is outstanding. His easy-going demeanor is perfect for everyone including people who speak a different language. Guests remarked about how happy and joyous the wedding ceremony was because of Rev Giz.Sent on 05/11/2021

Rev Giz is the Man.
We had the pleasure of having Rev. Giz as our officiant at our wedding this past July. We were initially at a loss trying to find a good fit for what we wanted, and were introduced to Giz via our wedding planner. Giz made the experience personal, and prior to our wedding, took the time to meet with us and get to know us and uncover what it was we would be looking for in our ceremony. While we both come from Catholic families, we by no means wanted a full mass, but wanted to be sensitive to our families and their expectation of "sacraments" in some capacity. We wanted to be in and out in ten minutes flat, but still have ceremony be meaningful. Giz totally got that, listened to us, adapted to what we wanted and far exceeded our expectations in his delivery. He is extremely sentimental, well spoken, and very funny - and not in a cheesy officiant way which we so appreciated. Giz had the most important job at our wedding, and we are so happy he got to be part of our special day. We consider him a friend now. We would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for the perfect balance of tradition, humor, and sentimentality.Sent on 08/04/2020
OC & Beyond - MD/DE Wedding Officiant's reply:Thank you so much for your warm words. It’s refreshing to “work” with such great people who understand it still takes a sense of humor and a “go with the flow” mentality, even in.. yes, even in a global pandemic. It was an honor and truly a pleasure to experience this moment in life with you. Your friends and family bring a vibe to life that is genuinely uncommon in most parts of life. Cheers and thanks for the 5 stars!

Great Person, Fantastic Officiant
My wife and I were married this year, 11/11/2019. From the start, reverend Giz went above and beyond to help us create a very special ceremony. He took the time to get to know us in person and really made a great effort to understand us as a couple. Instead of giving us a plain or generic service outline, he adapted a unique ceremony that made captured everything that I, my wife, and our families valued. He walked us through every step and took all the stress out of the process so that we were left with a beautiful and perfect moment. Also, Giz is a fantastic speaker. He is clear, precise with his words, and above all a great listener. He is hilarious, very professional in person, and a great guy all around! Highly, highly recommended.Sent on 12/03/2019
Working with Jeff is simply so easy, fun and totally amazing. He makes everyone feel so comfortable and is so in tune with the client, as well as all of the vendors that surround them to make their day magical. Always a treat to work with and you will love him!! Angie Encore Events by Angie
We truly enjoy working with Rev. Giz. From the time he arrives for rehearsal and all throughout his time with each couple, he truly acts as their friend and trusted confidant. He is a breeze to work with and we, the event planning staff here at Baywood, truly count him as not only a peer but as a friend. You will have an amazing ceremony if you book Rev. Giz.
I've had an opportunity to work with Jeffrey on several occasions. I can honestly say you won't be more pleased with the level of professionalism, personality and sincerity Jeff brings to your ceremony. If you're looking for a down to earth officiant you don't need to look any further.
