Fantastic Wedding Officiant

From the first conversation with Rev. Gerry, I knew he was the best person to perform our ceremony. He provided us with ceremony templates to choose from. He answered all our questions. He has such a warm friendly personality. He made our ceremony flow with ease. We would highly recommend him.

Great Wedding Officiant

Rev. Gerry was great from the first time we contacted him. He was so sweet and helpful in planning a beautiful wedding ceremony for us. I’ve could tell he he truly cared about our wedding and wanted it to be wonderful. We were able to incorporate every detail we wanted into the ceremony without a problem (even when we made last minute changes).

The ceremony itself was beautiful. Gerry made us all laugh a bit and kept things flowing nicely. He had some sweet words to say to us as well.

Rev. Gerry is awesome, and we would recommend him to anyone getting married! You won’t regret it. He is a quality guy and did a great job at our wedding!
