    Garry officiated our Thanksgiving wedding this year - and we are SO happy with his work. We found him through wedding wire, he was very responsive to emails and set up a meeting with us for a first meeting. At the meeting, he got to know us as individuals and as a couple, and ... View more then set us up with his EXTREMELY organized and very thoughtful online wedding ceremony building module. We had hundreds of outlines to choose from and were able to build a ceremony that suit our needs best. He is open to all religious affiliations and is not rigid on timing, structure and is wonderful with throwing in some humor. We had planned to say our own vows, but changed our minds an hour before the ceremony. Garry was equipped with an alternate script and no one noticed of any change! We received tons of compliments on his words and how dapper he looked - and had three friends ask for a referral. Garry is now very highly recommended by us! Thank you Garry!!!

    If you are looking for an officiant who cares about creating a ceremony that is exactly what you want, then you need to get in touch with Garry. My husband and I were looking for a non-religious ceremony that was personal, not too long (but not too short) and something that ... View more guests would enjoy being a part of. Garry delivered on all of these asks and more. The resources he provided us made writing our vows and selecting readings easy. We even had guests approach us throughout our reception to tell us how much they enjoyed the ceremony and even referenced how personal and "not-stuffy" it was... which was exactly what we wanted. Garry made the most important part of our wedding day beyond memorable and we would re-hire him in a second!
