    Perfect day

    Had a wonderful wedding in Naples, with Gerard as our officiant. He arrived on time (early actually), he was personable, friendly and professional. We had a wonderful, intimate ceremony and are so glad we chose Gerard to be part of it!

    Hannah and Rob: It was a pleasure to work with you, even from long distance from England. So happy everything met your expectations. Hope you both have a happy and blessed life together.

    Perfect Night!

    Gerard was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was so kind and helpful. He took his time and made sure our special night was just as how we had imagined it would be. We wanted short and sweet and he delivered. He met us out at our beach location, read our nuptials, and helped to make it a very magical night. He even stayed and took a few pictures for us. Then he handled all of our paperwork so we didn’t have to bother with it. I would highly recommend Gerard for your wedding ceremony!!

    Weddings by Gerard's reply:

    Jen and Brian: Thank you so much for the kind words. I try very hard to make each couple's night special. It was a pleasure working with you both and made my job easy. You hold a special place in my heart. Many blessings and happiness in the years to come.

    We're married!

    We met with Mr. Lorentz via zoom, a few days before our wedding. He explained the process, let us choose our reasons and basically guided us through the ceremony. At the ceremony, he had a cute certificate we could use to sign and later hang from our wall; since I'd mentioned to him we needed to have our witnesses sign our license, which we forgot to provide at the given time. Everything went according to plan and we're now happily married!

    Weddings by Gerard's reply:

    Elsa & Joseph. It was my pleasure to provide the best possible officiating service for your ceremony. Ya'll were easy to work with and very clear about what you wanted in the service. I always like that when a bride and groom know what they want. Thanks for the kind words. I wish for you blessings and happiness in your years together. God Bless.
