Introduction: I get to do what I love every day, Marry People. I am a full-time professional Marriage Officiant; authorized to perform weddings by the Commonwealth of Virginia, and travel to perform weddings throughout the entire Commonwealth. I am one of Virginia’s most requested Officiants, and a Thumbtack Top Pro for 7 consecutive years 2016-2023. I offer my services to all couples who come to me with love in their hearts 💕 and I would love to be part of your happily ever after. I marry couples in simple elopement ceremonies to elegant wedding events with hundreds of guests, and every size wedding in between, in backyard home weddings and local parks to Theatres, Vineyards, Historic Estates, BnB’s and more. I’m honored to serve as your Officiant, and I offer a complimentary no-obligation consultation by phone to all Thumbtack couples to get acquainted and discuss your preferences and particulars for your wedding day, such as, venue suggestions, how and where to get your marriage license, and what style ceremony you would like. Because I travel throughout Virginia, I have a base fee plus an additional fee for travel that varies subject to venue location. Ask me about weekday discounts and elopement packages.

I truly cannot say enough great things about Gail! From the first time we spoke to the wedding day, she was absolutely wonderful! She was incredibly thorough during the consultation and answered many of my questions before I even had a chance to ask them! Prior to my interview with Gail, my husband (still feels weird to say) and I discussed the traditional vows and though we wanted them to stay traditional we also weren't comfortable with some of the phrasing (honor and obey). I was nervous about asking for this change but before I could even bring the topic up Gail explained that though she kept the vows traditional she substituted/removed certain phrases, one being "honor and obey". For her to already be on the same page as us made our decision to hire her clear from the start and I don't think a better decision could've been made. She was polite, prompt and the vows she gave during the ceremony were absolutely beautiful! It's clear when you interact with Gail that it's her true passion to marry people. The way she speaks about it, the enthusiasm she shows, she simply loves, well, love! Working with someone who loves what they're doing so much is a wonderful feeling. I recommend Gail to any and every couple looking for an incredible marriage officiant. You will not be disappointed in the amazing service that she provides! Lauren and Dillon Richardson, est 3.2.23

I highly recommend Gail for your officiant needs. After the initial consultation, we communicated on several occasions well before the wedding date to plan details specific to the ceremony. Communication throughout the entire process was very professional and thorough, which made for a stressless experience. Drawing upon her experience, Gail brought insightful suggestions and recommendations that aligned well with our specific needs. Our ceremony and experience were exactly as described and we couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend Gail and her services to anyone, friends and family.

Gail was nothing short of amazing. There were some location change issues and Gail worked with us despite those changes, WITHOUT charging us extra. She was very helpful and insightful in providing information about what steps me and my husband needed to take in order to get married. She’s an awesome communicator and professional. The words spoken during our ceremony were absolutely beautiful. She aided in making my husband and I day special. I highly recommend choosing her for your special day.

Details: Elopement • Christian • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal

Gail is absolutely incredible! I was so overwhelmed when looking for an officiant, and her talent and expertise were apparent throughout the planning process and on the day of our ceremony. After our initial call, all of my questions were answered and she went above and beyond to help me prepare! She was warm-hearted and so knowledgeable. We really couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Gail!
