Rev G is a true professional!
Rev G is absolutely amazing! My husband and I had no idea where to start for finding a wedding officiant, but once we met Rev G we knew right away that he was the perfect fit. He is extremely experienced, so he was able to answer all of our questions and make us feel totally comfortable for the big day. The best part was we got to choose every aspect of our ceremony. Rev G will personalize it to fit your wants/needs. I will continue to recommend Rev G and his awesome assistant Sheryl to anyone and everyone!! (Oh, and Sheryl also captured some amazing photos of the ceremony as well!) They will treat you like real people - not just another gig. They also walked us through the paperwork and marriage license process which was a huge help. You won't be disappointed!Sent on 11/28/2018

Cannot recommend him enough!
Rev Giovanni is the perfect officiant and we cannot recommend him enough. He just married us a week ago on 4/13/2019 and he helped make our wedding very special. You get to personalize your entire ceremony and he walked us through on how to do that. It was a perfect way for my husband and me to take a break from wedding planning and pick exactly what we wanted for our vows and ceremony. The day of, he arrived early and told us what we would expect to do during the ceremony. He was well spoken, professional, and humorous at times-which we loved! It helped ease the nerves of being up in front of everyone. Our guests went on raving about how he performed a beautiful ceremony! His wife, Sheryl even took some photos during the ceremony. It was fun receiving those while we wait for our photos from our photographers! Again, me and my husband cannot recommend him enough! Thank you Rev G for an amazing part of our wedding! -Theresa and Clay KingSent on 04/20/2019

Flexible, Fun, Personalized
Rev. Giovanni and his assistant kept in contact with us regularly, reminding us of all the tasks we had to do in terms of vows and in name changes, etc. They also gave us space when we were still deciding on a few things. They drove up to Pine for our wedding and were patient as we thought it would rain and as we were delayed by about an hour. The Reverend emphasized we use our own personal choices in our vows, was incredibly flexible, and - I believe - enjoyed what turned out to be a sunny, breezy, beautiful spring day without a drop of rain in the ceremony at all!Sent on 04/03/2019

So glad we picked Reverend G! He was very helpful and knowledgeable. He provides you with a ceremony workbook which allows you to customize your ceremony. We received several compliments from our guests about how down to earth and professional he was.Sent on 03/21/2019

I was really worried about having vendor/professional regret for my wedding. But when I met Rev. Giovanni I felt 110% confident about my decision. He speaks well and is so experienced he puts you at ease immediately. I definitely recommend him, our families thought his service was great!Sent on 03/12/2019

Nice and Professional
Reverend Giovanni was great to work with. He went through the whole ceremony with us at the first meeting and then allowed us to personalize any section we wanted. On the day of the wedding he met with each of us separately to ensure the wedding would go smoothly and that he had everything correct.Sent on 03/12/2019

Pick the best Rev!
So happy you were able to lead our ceremony with such a short notice! Our ceremony was so special because we picked every word! Super easy to meet other people will give you the run around. Rev G did an amazing job and add humor to keep everyone’s attention.Sent on 02/16/2019

We wanted a ceremony that was personal and “us”. Rev G worked with us to nail it! I’m religious and my husband is not, but we were able to customize the ceremony to our needs. We even added our own benediction. Rev G was on time, extremely friendly and accommodating. We had multiple comments about how beautiful and touching our ceremony was. Highly recommend.Sent on 02/16/2019

Worked with us on a last minute officiant change
We were very happy with the service provided by Rev G. We had to find an alternative officiant about a month out from our wedding and he and his wife worked with us to give us the service we wanted. It was nice because he let's you pick everything he will say that day, which was exactly what we needed.Sent on 02/26/2019

We found Rev. G. through theknot.com. We were most excited to see an officiant with so many religions listed. This was perfect because I came from a Jewish background and my husband came from a Mormon background and weren't quite sure how we wanted to approach a ceremony with traditions while keeping it fairly non-denominational. He was so knowledgeable and easily helped us create the most beautiful ceremony ever. All of our family and friends said it was the perfect length, content, and fun. He also thinks of everything, so when I realized i left my vows in the dressing room, he had them printed out and ready for us to read from his workbook! Thank you Rev. G!Sent on 01/18/2019

Rev G was amazing! We are so happy we decided on him to officiate our wedding. We were able to customize our ceremony to fit our wants and needs . He was quick to respond with any changes we had to the ceremony script. Rev G and his assistant Sheryl arrived early the day of the wedding. They touched base with both my husband and I to go over last minute details. It made us both feel at ease to know we were in good hands!Sent on 12/27/2018
I highly recommend Reverend Giovanni!

Jennifer · Married on 10/20/2018
My husband and I are both in our early 50's and wanted to have an officiant that could represent both of our backgrounds at our wedding. Rev Giovanni and Sherry were extremely easy to work with and helped us craft a ceremony that had sufficient religious and secular leanings to make it very personal for both of us. It was a wonderful, joyous ceremony and Rev. Giovanni brought the appropriate amount of gravity and wit to the occasion. Our guests were highly complimentary of him as well. It was an enjoyable experience all around and we highly recommend him!Sent on 11/14/2018

The Absolute BEST Choice of Officiant!
We stumbled upon Rev. G while searching for an officiant here on The Knot about seven months before our wedding. We knew that getting married in Greer, AZ would narrow our officiant options significantly as it would require a four drive from either Tucson or Phoenix. After reading his shinning reviews we gave it a shot to see if he'd be willing to venture out to the woods to marry us. Lucky for us, he agreed! We communicated via Skype to discuss our vision for our wedding, who we are as a couple, and what we hoped for our ceremony. Rev. G was very clear that his entire goal is customize and ensure our ceremony is all that we envisioned and more. The wonderful thing about it, is that he meant it. He takes his role and responsibility of bringing a couple together in marriage very seriously, but has a great sense of humor to keep your stress level low and the focus on the joy of your impending marriage. We were set to get married at 3:00PM out in the woods (where there is no cell reception), so to ensure that he made it to the venue timely he arrived at 1:00PM - allowing plenty of time to check on both the bride and groom (and our families!) before the ceremony. We placed our faith in him for a ceremony that fit us as a couple and he beyond delivered. We are forever grateful we found him and would recommend him to our closest friends and loved ones - hands down!Sent on 11/04/2018
