Amazing wedding officant
We had to hold our wedding in the difficult period of the pandemic. It was a simple ceremony held on our porch with social distancing guidelines. We are so glad we had Gizelda as our officiant in these difficult circumstances. She had such a kind and strong presence and made everything easier. The vows she prepared were beautiful. I strongly recommend her!Sent on 04/30/2020
Toomer's Tax, Notary and Wedding Officiant Services's reply:Thank you so much. It was truly a pleasure. Weddings are meant to be special occasions and I am happy I was there to help make your special day one to remember. I wish you nothing but happiness in your new marriage.

Very Personal and Quite Remarkable
We are from Canada and wanted to visit New Orleans during Mardi Gras… As we are both over 40 years old and previously were married and have been together over 7 years,,, we got an idea of eloped wedding,, just two of us go somewhere we have never been before and get secretly married.
We contacted Gizelda and we had outstanding experience. Gizelda was incredibly personal, even we had unusual request to get married on the street of New Orleans. Gizelda patiently was answering all our thousand questions and helped us to figure out what worked the best for us. Jackson Square, in front of St. Louis Cathedral in the heart if New Orleans was a most stunning choice.
I will definitely recommend Gizelda. I believe Gizelda is putting a heart in what she does.Sent on 02/29/2020

A Dream Come True
Words cannot express my gratitude. Our wedding was initially planned for Charleston, SC then Dorian hit and everything was canceled. It was VERY important to us to keep our date and the officiant was so responsive and helpful.Sent on 09/09/2019
She made our day just what I hoped it would be and I truly felt the spirit move through her as she performed our ceremony. God blessed us to find the perfect person and we were married in the perfect place for us!
Toomer's Tax, Notary and Wedding Officiant Services's reply:Aww! That is so sweet. It gives me great pleasure to be available for such an important event. Everything was simple yet beautiful and elegant. I wish you all the success in your new marriage.

Look no more, you've found your officiant!!!
Gizelda did such an amazing job with our wedding. I'm from Louisiana but currently living out of state. We had our ceremony in New Orleans and wasn't able to meet before the actual ceremony. But she did such an amazing job, it felt like we knew her. She arrived early, even though we were a bit late. I would most definitely recommend her services to family and friends.Sent on 08/06/2019

Same-Sex Military Wedding: Excellent Service!
Gizelda was amazing and absolutely professional. My spouse and I are PCSing soon and we needed to have a quick elopement before going overseas. We reached out to her and she was patient with us and helped us throughout the entire procedure. We honestly could not thank her enough for her flexibility, responsiveness, sheer kindness she shown to us, and the beautiful ceremony we had! For all military members in the local area I would recommend her any day!Sent on 06/06/2019

Myra Harris · Married on 04/16/2019
Gizelda was responsive, flexible and very welcoming. When I first called her to schedule a time and date, I can hear her pulling out the calendar to tell me her availability. We wanted to do it the next day and she actually found the time to fit me into her busy schedule. Unfortunately, I was unable to proceed with that day and had to reschedule so the time I rescheduled for was available.
She responded to all my emails in a timely manner. She informed me about everything I needed to know so I didn’t have to ask any questions.
She welcomed us into her home where she had the ceremonial area set up and REALLY nice. We loved everything. The ceremony was short, sweet and intimate. Just what we asked for.
The price is reasonable and I would definitely recommend booking with her.Sent on 04/17/2019
Toomer's Tax, Notary and Wedding Officiant Services's reply:Aww! Thank you so much Myra. It was a pleasure meeting you and the family. Glad that I could help make your day a special one.

Absolutely Perfect in Every Way!
Ms. Toomer was amazing. From start to finish she was kind and professional. I grew up in the area but moved to California two years ago. My wife and I knew we wanted to have a destination wedding back in New Orleans and we are so glad we found Gizelda! Her ceremony was perfect and we could not recommend her highly enough!
Thank you Gizelda!

Private and professional
Toomer's provided a very nice and elegant space for my SURPRISE wedding. She was very understanding of me wanting to keep my surprise. She helped me to understand all of the guidelines before we arrived in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. She sent me information through email for my approval every step of the way. The space she used was elegant and perfect for a small ceremony. She helped with photography and provided us with a nice wedding gift. I highly recommend using her for your officiant.Sent on 04/17/2019
Toomer's Tax, Notary and Wedding Officiant Services's reply:Thank you so much Kenyetta. It was a pleasure to officiate your wedding. You two make a great couple. Good luck in your marriage.

Awesome, for a quick ceremony.
She was very professional, and quick. I had called that day looking for a last minute ceremony to tie the knot and she was able to squeeze us in her schedule. It was a small ceremony. She even took pictures of our marriage. Thank you again.Sent on 01/08/2019
