    Absolutely Perfect

    I can't praise Garry enough. He was extremely professional and experienced in his work which was highly evident in his quick responses. He took the time to go through everything in detail, from wedding ceremony writing to the timeline. The resources and help Garry provided were huge assets in making the day memorable. Thanks to Garry, our ceremony went perfectly!

    It was an absolute joy to work with Stephanie & Timothy! Their personally written vows were absolutely incredible. I've had the honour of hearing many vows over the years and their vows really stand out and gave me cause to reflect on my own vows. Enjoy married life!

    Wedding day

    Gary was amazing to deal with. Very accommodating and patient. He helped us pick the perfect spot and tailored it just for us. Our family and friends helped us celebrate and it was short and sweet. Highly recommend him for any wedding.

    When I recommend an outside wedding in October I didn't count on it being almost freezing! It was not a problem for the bride and groom...true Canadians! Their ceremony was very warm even though it was rather cool! Enjoy married life!

    Highly recommend Garry

    Garry is a good-hearted, knowledgeable, and flexible officiant. He was able to accommodate at the last minute and travelled to our place to conduct our short and sweet wedding ceremony. We very happy with the ceremony and vows. Thank you Garry!

    Amazing Service!

    We planned a wedding from BC in Ontario. Garry was kind and incredibly professional and answered any questions we had almost immediately, even when there was a time difference. His attitude was incredible, and he was funny and heartfelt, he gave us a ceremony that we'll never forget.

    Stacey & Nick's wedding was one of the most memorable for this wedding season! I was so honoured to be surrounded by "men in uniform" including the groom! This couple was extremely kind and generous to invite us to their reception celebration. My wife and I felt like family! I know they will enjoy married life!

    Definitely a Thumb Up

    We really enjoyed our wedding celebration with Mr. Garry. He helped us a lot in a very short time to have directions about the proper procedure of the ceremony. He was professional, entertaining and made all the guests feel that they were part of this unique experience in a fun way.

    Great officiant!

    After being at a friend's wedding where Garry was the officiant, we had to have him as ours too! We loved his personality and professionalism. Once he became our officiant, we were not disappointed at all! I loved the resources that Garry provided us with to create the perfect ceremony for us. I was able to select passages that reflected us as a couple and felt authentic. Beyond that, Garry met with us beforehand to discuss the ceremony and our choices, which provided us with a real sense of ease knowing that everything would be under control on the day of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, we were beyond happy with how the ceremony unfolded and we felt that it couldn't have gone any smoother!

    I was thrilled to officiate this wedding for a couple from two different nations and cultures. Their differences didn't matter because this couple was so very much in love! It was beautiful wedding with an absolutely beautiful bride! Enjoy married life!

    Garry is the best!

    Garry is an amazing officiant. He is personable and likeable and made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. He worked with us to develop the ceremony that we wanted - not just in length and words, but in tone. We wanted something that was relatively short and light, but also heartfelt with a touch of humour (not an easy feat!). Garry executed it flawlessly. People felt the love and laughed at the right moments. It was absolutely perfect. Multiple people came up to us during the reception to tell us how nice the ceremony was and that Garry was the best officiant they've ever seen. We are so happy that we chose Garry to be a part of our day, and would highly recommend him to anyone.

    It was a truly amazing experience to officiate for Jacquie & Joe! They are a beautiful couple perfectly matched for each other! It's a great honour to stand with a couple who is madly in love and will go the distance for a long and happy marriage! It was a Milestone Moment wedding that stands out in my mind! They will enjoy married life!

    Amazing Officiant

    From the very first interaction my husband and I had with Garry, we knew he was the officant we wanted for the wedding. He was professional, expereinced in the industry and was such an incredible help with organzing our ceremony.

    With Garry we got to customize our entire ceremony. He had great content to chose from but he also allowed us to add in anything we wanted (readings, poems, etc.) to make our ceremony meaningful.

    Garry totally took charge of the rehersal with a relaxed and calm demeanor. He made my husband and I feel listened to and he helped us get our wedding party all on the same page with the ceremony. Garry walked through the rehersal as many times as I (the bride) needed, he made it very clear that if I wasnt happy with something we could change it.

    On our wedding day, Garry was perfect, he showed up in a suit and tie, with lots of time to spare and made sure my husband and I were absolutely ready before we began the ceremony. He ran the ceremony perfectly, he lightened the mood up after our sappy vows and gave our guests the lovliest ceremony to witness.

    If there is one thing I can say about Garry its that I never had to worry about him. As a bride there were a million things running through my head for like a whole year before the wedding; but with Garry, I never had to send a dreaded "follow up email" or have to worry about if he'd be on time for the rehersal or ceremony. He was so incredibly easy to work with.

    With Garry you dont just get an officiant, you get someone who truely cares about you and will go the extra mile to make your wedding day exactly how you want it to be. He is worth every penny, he made our ceremony one-of-a-kind and I cant thank him enough for that.

Rachel & Eric I have these words for you: Thank you for an awesome experience! Enjoy married life!

    Married July 21st

    Garry is a genuinely caring officiant, he was very flexible with what we wanted and his amazing package allowed for a very individualized experience. He maintained a very relaxed atmosphere and kept checking on my poor husband who was so nervous he looked like he was going to fall over, his package allowed us to be married on our site for a more reasonable price than most others. He truly made it an unforgettable experience.

    It was truly an "unforgettable experience" at Chasity & Matthew's wedding! Their ceremony was meaningful and memorable! It was well planned with much depth and thought! My wife (Sandra) joined me for this beautiful ceremony in Niagara Falls. We took time afterwards to enjoy all that Niagara on the Lake had to offer. Looking forward to more ceremonies in the Honeymoon city. Congratulations Chasity & Matthew...enjoy married life!

    All about you

    If you're looking for an officiant you can't do better than Gary. From the start he makes you feel comfortable and at ease.

    Gary is a consummate professional. From day one he was very responsive to all of my emails answering big and small questions alike in a timely fashion.

    For the wedding rehearsal Gary took the time to let us know that the day was all about us. We get what we want. While he would politely listen to others input he would make sure that only the things that my wife and I wanted happened.

    During the ceremony Gary conducted a very smooth service from start to finish. Everything went perfectly as planned.

    We also got the top package available which includes marriage counseling. This part was very important to me as it opened up a whole new line of dialogue between my wife and I. I thought this made for a great first step. If you're on the fence I recommend it.

    I was honoured to be asked to officiate for Meghan & James! This couple is very well suited for each other! I couldn't wait for their big day because I especially enjoy out of town weddings. Their chosen wedding ceremony was perfect and I especially enjoyed the "ice cream truck" to cool off after the ceremony. I can't say enough about the wonderful process from beginning to end with Meghan & James! Enjoy married life!!
