    Gail was professional and really helped prepare us for all possible scenarios to make sure we had a smooth and romantic day. She had amazing ideas (sand ceremony) and she wrote a beautiful ceremony for us.

      Thank you so much for your review. I'm sure your thoughts will be helpful to other couples as well. It certainly was a pleasure to meet you and I'm so glad I contributed to your memorable day. Affectionately, Gail

    About this pro

    I get to do what I love every day…Marry people. I receive 5 star reviews for the ceremonies and services I provide; and have received the Couples Choice Award for two consecutive years; ranking among the top 4% of Officiants. It’s your wedding, and just like everything else on your special day, I believe your ceremony should be more than just a necessary part of your day. It should be a memorable part of your day and reflect your style. So I write ceremonies specific to each couple I marry and I offer free consultation either by phone or in-person to get better acquainted and discuss what you would like to include, or not include, to aide in creating a ceremony just for you. I'm happy to personalize your ceremony by including such items as; sentiments dear to you, remembrances of loved ones, your choice of poems/readings/songs, unity ceremonies, jumping the broom and so on. From simple elopements and small intimate weddings, to grand events with over 300 guests; I perform civil and non-denominational ceremonies throughout Virginia. Whether it be a back yard venue, park, farm field, historic mansion or grand plantation; it is always my pleasure to serve as your Marriage Officiant. I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you soon and hopefully serve as your Officiant on your Wedding Day. I enjoy everything about being a Marriage Officiant. I love meeting the couples who engage me to perform their ceremony, and often stay in contact with many of my couples well after their special day. I have been blessed to be married for over 25 years to the best mate I feel the Lord could have paired me with and truly enjoy the honor of bringing other couples with love in their hearts together to experience the same blessing through the union of marriage.

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        My fees are tiered for basic simple elopements, small weddings, and larger weddings with rehearsals. For engagements requiring extensive travel, an additional fee to cover time and mileage may apply. For couples who are in a hurry for their Certified copies, I will travel to hand deliver the Marriage License to the applicable Court to expedite it's processing. (Subject to my availability, additional compensation required)
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        We'll initially meet in person or by phone to discuss everything to be included in their ceremony. We continue to stay in contact right up to the day of the event. My couples are encouraged to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, changes or additions regarding their ceremony.
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        I specialize in Civil and Non-denominational wedding ceremonies throughout Virginia receiving 5 star reviews for my ceremonies. (Civil being, no mention of God and Non-denominational being, of no particular faith but containing mention of God. For example: in a prayer) I marry couples with no guests in attendance (Elopements), formal ceremonies with 300 guests, and everything in between. Occasionally, my couples engage my services at the spur of the moment for an elopement, but usually, my couples reserve my services between 3 – 12 months in advance of their wedding date. Even for elopements.
