    Gay Lee is wonderful!

    Gay Lee was originally going to officiate our wedding in 2020, but then the pandemic happened! Instead, we had a civil ceremony and had her officiate our celebration at the wedding venue we originally booked instead in more of a vow renewal fashion. She was so pleasant, easy to work with, responsive, and kind. I really enjoyed her remarks and she did a great job capturing our love and commitment in words!

    Highly Recommend!

    Gay Lee was wonderful and highly recommend! She was very thoughtful in helping us lay out how we wanted our small ceremony to go and we are thankful she was part of our special day. She helped us incorporate various passages and messages that related to our relationship, which made it all that much more special.
