Latest Review: I can't say enough about how pleased we were with the job Gary did in officiating our son's wedding.
Several months before the wedding, he began communicating with all parties involved to get a feel for what we were expecting of him. The majority of the communication with the future bride and groom had to be done via email, as they were living in Istanbul. He sent his prepared list of questions to them, asking that they complete them individually; so that he could get an idea of what it was they each wanted and learn of their feelings and thoughts towards each other throughout their courtship. Since the wedding was to be held in Miami, they did travel to the States a couple of times prior to the wedding and had an opportunity to sit down personally with Gary to further discuss the ceremony.
The union of the two was further complicated by the fact that they were from two different countries and of different faiths. Gary did extensive research on this and made sure that not only were the bride and groom comfortable with the details of the ceremony, but that both sets of parents were also comfortable.
The script that Gary prepared for the ceremony was not only personable, but touching and sincere. It also had a bit of humor in it, resulting from what he had learned from the two while preparing for the ceremony.
The wedding was held on an outside terrace, several floors up in a high rise in downtown Miami. As is the case with outdoor spring weddings held in Florida, the ceremony was slightly delayed due to rain. However, once we were able to start, Gary made sure everything ran smoothly.
I have no doubt that Gary would put the same effort into any wedding he participated in and, thus, would highly recommend him to you.
