Wonderful! He Exceeded All of our Expectations!

Dr. Gaines made our quick elopement so so special! My husband wanted to get married on a beach, and Dr. Gaines made it happen for us with the quickness! It was such a warm and light-hearted ceremony. There were smiles, laughs, tears, and lots of love! It was amazing how he was able to make our ceremony specialized just for us! I highly recommend Dr. Gaines, he will make a truly memorable experience (did I mention he's also a photographer?)!

Beautiful and completely original

Dr. Gaines gave us a beautiful ceremony and used the stories and testaments we provided him to complete what was a truly one of a kind set of vows. He walked us through the whole process from the start and we felt very supported by him! Our guests thought he was terrific and he brought people who never cry to tears.

We’re incredibly grateful for him and will cherish the memory of that day!
