Krista in East Highland Park, VA *****
Gail did such an amazing job with our marriage ceremony. We knew we wanted to have someone that could capture our love for each other without being too religious and Gail went above and beyond what we could have imagined. The
passages she chose for our ceremony were perfect and brought tears of joy to our friends and families witnessing our wedding. We highly recommend Gail for your big day!
Lindsey in Lakeside, VA *****
Gail was such a considerate, kind, and reliable person from the very first phone call consultation, through our follow-up question/review calls, and during the ceremony. The process of consultation and completing the paperwork was a breeze because Gail was so thorough. Definitely eased my wife’s and my own anxious minds! We were reassured and comforted by the fact that Gail covered everything with us and made the process super easy so we didn’t have to stress (much, haha) before our big day. The ceremony itself was beautiful. Gail’s speech was so poetic, and she did not make any stereotypical remarks or comments about us two ladies getting married. She has married LGBT+ folks for many years, which was also super reassuring. During our search for an officiant, I had been worried who we might find, especially after my brother and his wife had an officiant who made remarks during his speech about stereotypical gender roles husbands and wives have had. Big yikes. So when we found Gail on EnGAYged and saw that she used gender-neutral language, did not include any religious aspect if it was not wanted, and focused on the joy and love that should be celebrated in a ceremony, we knew we found a great officiant. We are so thankful that she was the one to unite my wife and I in marriage.
Stephanie in Richmond, VA *****
Even on the coldest, rainy day our ceremony was simple and beautiful for us. Gail was responsive and helped provide
all the information we needed within a 5 day notice. She eased my nerves and made the process very easy. Thank you
for everything!
Penelope in Richmond, VA *****
From her first contact with us, Gail was wonderfully thorough, knowledgeable, and caring. She got to know what kind of
ceremony we wanted then made it even more special than we imagined. She created a beautifully thoughtful ceremony
that brought tears to both of us!
Danta in Tuckahoe, VA *****
She was wonderful. Very respectful, and every time that I needed her, she was only a phone call away. If y’all planning on getting married, she is the one that should marry you. Thanks again Gail
Petra in Laurel, VA *****
Gail was amazing!! She listened to us & created a ceremony just right for us! She was able to perform a small miracle,
working around our circumstances & schedule, to make our special day a dream come true. We highly recommend
Gail for your wedding day!!!
Crystal in Hanover, VA *****
Gail came recommended from a family friend and she did not disappoint. She is extremely through and organized. We
are grateful we had her as our officiant.
Alysha in Lakeside, VA *****
We’re beyond thrilled to have found Gail for our special day. We reached out to her on a tight timeline for a non-traditional wedding and she was able to accommodate us. In our initial call, she asked all of the questions that we didn’t even consider- she’s thorough, detailed, and a consummate professional. We’d highly recommend Gail…if we could get married again, we’d make the same choice in a heartbeat!!
Christina in Highland Springs, VA *****
Gail made our day truly special! As a same-sex couple, it was important for us to find an officiant that we felt comfortable with, and Gail truly made our day so special. The words she
selected were perfect and really helped us focus on the moment. Our ceremony was just the two of us, and Gail was really helpful in pointing out picture ideas and areas for us to conduct the ceremony. She really helped to guide us through the whole planning process, and it is greatly appreciated. We felt like Gail made the day extra special and highly recommend her to anyone
considering her to officiant their wedding!
