Edward is kind, sweet, and funny. He will do whatever it takes to make your wedding special. We loved his ceremony script and his willingness to accommodate our wishes. He was punctual and prepared. We highly recommend Edward!

Edward was amazing, we cancelled our wedding due to COVID so he came by our house for a backyard ceremony! It was short and sweet and he was perfect! Thank you so much!

Mr. Gildemeister was very kind and attentive to our requests. And most of all, flexible. Our zoom didn’t work the first time so he was kind enough to go through the whole ceremony twice! Thank you Mr. Gildemeister and Maribel, from David and I!!!

He was excited to officiate my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding. Listened to everything she wanted and responded according. The ceremony was created around them. It was beautiful.

Mr. Gildemeister was a wonderful officiant!! He was very patient with me as I had a lot to do while planning my wedding! He has a very kind demeanor & is very much about making sure your ceremony goes the way you'd like. He makes suggestions but is very open to how you invision your ceremony. We loved him. My, now husband, thought he was a very nice & friendly person. We were very happy with our choice. Thank you, Mr Gildemeister!!

Background Check

Edward Gildemeister


  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Any weddings I book after today (2/10/19) that are outside Bexar County will incur an extra charge for gas/travel. Same thing for an out of town rehearsal.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After telephone or email contact I would like to meet the couple together for discussion about how they want the ceremony to go, what vows they want to use etc.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a professional educator, an elder in the Presbyterian church and husband, father and stepfather. (None of which is really relevant)
