    Charles was wonderful, he helped me plan a wedding in less than a month. He was also great with all my family and friends and really made our special day one to remember. I'd recommend him to anyone!!

    Charles was very sweet and made our ceremony funny and emotional at the same time. Although we had very little time to spend getting to know him on the day of the wedding, he seemed like a really nice guy and performed a beautiful ceremony for us.

    Most often the wedding couple receives complements on the music, the food, the dress, the cake, etc. Yes, we were fortunate to hear those too. In our case, in addition, throughout the evening we heard how fantastic our Officiate was....and he was! Charles Gilbride (yes, that's his last name...LOL) representing www.FortLauderdaleWeddings.com made our ceremony one to remember. From the time we first met with him we knew he would make our trip down the aisle fun and not stuffy. My wife and I strongly recommend you meet with him....you won't regret it.

    My husband and I got married on 05/07/2017. We had planned on an afternoon wedding but the Ft. Lauderdale Air Show was going on that same weekend! Up to 300,000 people expected to show up for the air show. There was no way we could changed the date. Charles suggested a "Sunrise" wedding. We cannot thank him enough! He knew down to the second of when the sun would rise. Thank you Charles for waking up before the crack of dawn to watch the sunrise and marry Derik and I !!! I read the vows on the way down, tears went down my cheeks as I smiled at how much they captured exactly how I feel about my husband. The pictures were amazing and we got them back quicker than expected.

    In general, I couldn't ask for more. He was very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. From the beginning, he helped us through the process of obtaining the marriage license and how it all works, he was very prompt when answering all my questions, and even emailed me a template of the entire ceremony prior to the wedding date for me to review. Our ceremony went very smooth, all thanks to his expertise. He definitely gave it that extra special touch. Above all, he was very sweet and made the entire process enjoyable. I would definitely recommend him for wedding ceremonies. He is truly remarkable.

    My advice is that your special event cannot be in better hands than with Mr. Charles Gildbride. If you want a professional, helpful, friendly, and funny officiant for your wedding do not doubt to call him. From the first call you will feel stress free and he will make you feel that your wedding is as special for him as special it is for you. Thank you, Mr. Charles.

    I can't say enough about our November 19th wedding at Deer Creek. Charles was so cordial and so funny. He has the perfect balance between romance and comedic relief. My family loved everything about your ceremony, especially your, "The Art of Marriage" verse that they even asked for a copy. Charles was the best decision we made for our ceremony and we highly recommend him. Thank you so much for making our day special!

    Charles did a wonderful job with great sincerity in his words as he spoke and made us feel very relaxed as though he wasn't a stranger we just met 15 min before the ceremony. He was very flexible and with terrific communication making the process very streamline and easy. Highly recommend!

    Charles was wonderful from our first phone call to our thank you hug after the ceremony! Charles was extremely helpful with planning our wedding from out of state. My husband and I were planning our wedding from Virginia & knew nothing about Fort Lauderdale, so we asked Charles to pick a place for us with clear water and palm trees. Charles prepared a beautiful and perfect ceremony and picked the most amazing place to marry us, Vista Park Beach, where my husband and I were not only married in front of the beach and in between 2 palm trees, we were also married under a double rainbow!! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. We are so happy Charles was our officiant and would absolutely recommend him to any couple who is looking for a beautiful beach wedding. Thank you Charles! You're the best! John & Joann

    We were extremely pleased with the service Charles provided. He made planning and executing a destination wedding easy by providing detailed instructions and by promptly returning calls and emails. Our ceremony was warm, touching and thoughtful.

    Charles went out of his way to make our wedding day a beautiful and memorable one. He was thoroughly professional and provided us with useful information on obtaining the marriage license, selecting the perfect beach venue in Fort Lauderdale and preparing a truly meaningful ceremony. With Charles' help our wedding went off without a hitch and was exactly what I wanted.

    Charles was awesome!!! We requested information and he replied promptly. He went over details of the ceremony with us and sent us what he was going to be saying at the ceremony. He also met with us at the hotel and went over more specific details as walking, standing, eternity candle ceremony, etc. the ceremony was beautiful!!! Sweet, funny, meaningful, romantic and just perfect for us!!! We and our families were really happy with how everything turned out!! He also sent us a scan of the license and filed the license at the county with no delay.

    We also had his wife, Hua, as our photographer. She took her time and they stayed until we had all the pictures we wanted. They quickly sent us a DVD with all the pictures of the wedding and I have to say it's hard deciding which ones to include in our album because so many of them were beautiful!!!

    We highly recommend them!!!

    Charles was the best! We found Charles when we were researching wedding officiants for our destination wedding in Ft. Lauderdale. He took the time to speak with us about our vision for the wedding and really got to know us better before agreeing to work with us. The ceremony that Charles planned was absolutely perfect. Simple, non-traditional, intimate and forever memorable. We had planned to write our own vows but after reading what Charles put together we opted to go with his words. All of our guests commented on Charles' personality and obvious love for his craft. Thank you Charles for everything...you're the best!
