The right choice

Gary was easy to meet with and talk to. He was open to our suggestions, he had great input, and together we were able to put together our perfect ceremony. After the ceremony, we heard from our friends and family that it was one of the best ceremonies they'd ever attended! Five stars for Gary!

Great Officiant

Gary was great to work with and made several suggestions to make our wedding even better. We wanted something short and simple in which Gary worked with us all the way. I had written my own vows and Gary used them to a tee. My family and friends just loved how he conducted the ceremony. We highly recommend him. Belle and Randy!

Rev. Copeland was very professional and attentive to our request. He has several suggested formats prepared for a wedding ceremony, but was willing to make changes to our wedding at our request. He has done this for a long time and even has a checklist of what couples may need to do to prepare for a wedding. We were very pleased how our wedding day went.
Thank you , Gary!!!
