Gail was a fantastic officiant. On our first phone call she spoke with us for over an hour on things that we may not have otherwise known in regards to obtaining a marriage license and what would be necessary to bring with us. She was open to writing our ceremony however we wished and gave us guidance on what we could include in our ceremony. She answered all of our questions and she ended up performing a hand fasting ceremony for us which was beautiful and one of our favorite moments throughout the day. Gail was a really great speaker and we enjoyed all that she had to say. It is very clear that she is knowledgeable and kind and her words were a wonderful contribution to our wedding. Thank you, Gail!! (Photography by Ashley Eagleson Photography)

Gail was professional, punctual, and took into account every single detail on what we wanted from a short but sweet wedding ceremony. She was super friendly, easy going and asked all the right questions to get to know us and our 'style' as a couple. It was a much smaller affair than we'd planned but we were very happy with the way our day turned out, as well as with the precautions taken to be safe for our outdoor ceremony. Thank you Gail!

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 us !

  • 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.
