    Simple yet intimate ceremony

    We just had an simple ceremony with limited 6 guests in person, and video called our family. Gerry hosted our intimate ceremony which was exactly how we'd like it to be. During the preparation session, we mostly communicated via via emails and texts. Gerry was always very responsive to our questions. We also had one face-time session to go through the details. On the wedding day, Gerry arrived much earlier to meet us on our wedding venue. Thanks Gerry for making our ceremony smooth and memorable!

    Great Service Broadcast World Wide

    Given the current situation it was touch and go as to whether we would be able to keep our wedding date, but Gerald was with us every step of the way.
    Gerald put together a beautiful service after our conversations and meeting with him but when we had to completely change our arrangements, he gave us a new, abbreviated service which was perfect for the day.
    We only had 6 people in physical attendance, but another 50 friends and family who joined remotely via Zoom from England, France and around the USA - Everyone commented on what a great job Gerald did and how the service was one of the nicest that they had seen.
    We will be having another celebration when some sense of normality returns, and we will be asking Gerald to return and perform the full original ceremony (hopefully with a lot more people physically in attendance)
    Gerald helped give us a wonderful day.

    Thanks Bri- I was so happy to be a part of the day. Came home telling everyone what a joy it was to celebrate with you. It will be a memorable day for me too

    Dear Brides to Be, Our Flute and Violin Wedding Duo had the honor of working with Gerald of "The Heart of the Wedding" at a stunning Outdoor Wedding Ceremony, taking place at The Molly Pitcher Inn, Red Bank, NJ. Gerald's presentation is elegantly polished and outstandingly professional. He expertly, and magically, kept a very nervous Bride and Groom, calm and collected, throughout their Ceremony! Bravo, Gerald! Sincerely, Flutist/Artistic Director Michele, Bridal Music
