Congratulations! I would love to help you make your ceremony that you and your family and friends would talk about for decades, This day is all about you and what you want, how I do this is I start off by emailing you a ceremony package full of word choices so you can choose what fits your love and meet your needs if you are Religious, or Non-Denominational. I give you my patience and understanding without judgment. I go out of my way to make sure you are at ease on your special day. I handle all kinds of circumstances of all kinds. I have been officiating weddings for over 9 years and I have found a love for my career as you would feel this. I was ordained through a spiritual college learning how to officiate weddings have done over 80 weddings a year scheduling myself with plenty of time to get there 30 minutes ahead of time to reassure you we are good to go! Where do you go from here all you have to do is contact me and I will email you a ceremony package full of word choices so you can enjoy reading through it and touching your heart and when you are ready we can meet or if you are out of town we can Skype, talk on the phone or through emails that way you know if we have a connection that you are looking for. Then I will love to listen to your vision and get your choices from the ceremony package I will pull it all together so you will have a good feel for how I work. I will also go over your wedding licenses and all that you for your day!! I can be there for your rehearsal if you want that I will get there ahead of time making sure all is good with the both of you and making sure everyone involved is comfortable and relaxed. I am there for you!! And you will feel that. I am licensed for Maryland, DC and VA.


I do hope to hear from you and help you create everything your heart desires.

Rev. Christine was awesome - I forgot the roses for the rose portion of our ceremony and also the table that accompanied them. I also found out later on that I was 15 minutes late to the ceremony.. and I had no idea. I guess the photos went over, and my son's "here comes the bride" sign went missing. She worked through all of those shenanigans and got through my ceremony with no kinks. Thanks for everything!

Rev. Christine was a pleasure to work with. During our initial meeting, she made an effort to get to know my husband and I and understand our vision for our wedding ceremony. We had a non-religious ceremony and she had a lot of great ideas for how to make it feel special and unique. She helped us create the script for the ceremony, suggested a number of great readings and worked with us to incorporate a special wine box/love letter component into our ceremony. She also provided helpful guidance on getting a marriage certificate in DC, and was present for our rehearsal. She was prompt, professional and really made our ceremony special!

OMG Rev Christine is the BEST! She took the time to meet with us to go through our 6/14/14 wedding format. A professional who knows what she's doing. We're so glad we opted for the rehearsal. The rev took charge. The morning of the wedding I emailed to let her know I was feeling uncomfortable about my entrance. No problem-she rolled with it. She even busted a little dance move at the end of the ceremony:)
The ceremony itself was just BEAUTIFUL!! My family & friends all commented on how the words were so beautiful and sweet. One friend even told me the next day she smiled allday thinking about the ceremony.

She even worked with us to do the legal ceremony before hand. We appreciated that very very much. I'm so glad rev Christine officiated our wedding. You will not be disappointed with the rev.

From the moment I met Christine, I knew she was the perfect person to officiate our wedding ceremony. She really listened to our vision and guided us to create it. She gave us many options to chose from and allowed us to really make it our own. She was wonderful with my family at the rehearsal and they are still raving at how fabulous she was. At the ceremony, she was well spoken, at a perfect volume and held everyone together! I recommend her strongly!

Rev Christine was so wonderful. At this point, definitely could not imagine being married by anyone else. My mother in law said it best when she said she wanted to invite Rev Christine to everything because she made you feel like you've known her forever because of just her ease and demeanor. Easy to contact and very easy to work with. Very flexible to accommodate personal needs of what a ceremony should reflect. Short and sweet rehearsal and the ceremony went off without a hitch. Wonderful!

Rev. Christine was absolutely wonderful from the day we met, to the day of our wedding (and beyond)! She is professional, well-organized, and very easy to talk to. She was always quick to respond to any questions we had, no matter what they were. When we began looking for someone to officiate our wedding, we really didn't know what we wanted from our ceremony. Christine provided us with tons and tons of sample readings, and helped up put together a ceremony that was perfect for us. During our rehearsal, she made sure that everyone knew their part and felt comfortable with their roles. I don't know what we would have done without her!

Christine was a miracle. We had a non-traditional wedding with just family and close friends at a restaurant. We found Christine on the web and selected her based on her reviews. We could not have been happier and all of the 5-star reviews are correct.

Christine had a selection of ceremonies to fit our needs, she was in constant contact, and she met with use prior to our event to review everything. Although we did not utilize pre-wedding counseling, she does provide this service. Without Christine, I'm not sure our wedding would have gone as smoothly as it did. Christine arrived early and figured everything out so that our ceremony in the restaurant worked out great!

You will not be disappointed or have to worry if you choose Christine to perform your ceremony. She is wonderful!

My fiance and I decided spontaneously, that after 3 years of engagement, we wanted to get married.... in 8 days. We secured a location, which was hard enough to do in such a short amount of time, but our biggest concern was finding an officiant who would be available and willing to work with us and make our day special on such short notice. I searched online for DC wedding officiants, checking out websites and reading reviews. I contacted Rev. Christine via email, as well as a few other potential officiants, on a Friday evening. She called me within one hour. The first thing that struck me was the calm and soothing nature of her voice. She stressed that the day was about US. She sent us wording samples for the ceremony later that evening, and even told us that if we chose to go with someone else, to feel free to use her words, as it is OUR day, and should be special. I was sold. Rev. Christine was readily available for my questions and concerns over the course of the week, and arranged to meet with me over coffee to discuss how the ceremony would play out. She has so much insight and experience- her suggestions and vision in making things run smoothly were invaluable. Her pricing is also incredibly reasonable. She was punctual, reliable, and extremely approachable for both our coffee date and the day of the ceremony, as well as via phone and email in the time between. She arrived at the site early to meet with us and help calm our nerves. She was exactly who we needed and our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. I have nothing negative to say- I highly recommend her.

Reverend Christine McGunigale was great! She was incredibly flexible. She commuted to our house on a Friday evening and was right on time.

We were a little nervous, as we had no idea what to expect, but Rev Christine made us feel very comfortable. As private and low key as it was, she brought a great sense of emotion and happiness to our ceremony.

We highly recommend Rev. Christine to everybody!

Rev. Christine was perfect! Quality and prefessionalism, in the midst of our wedding chaos (I forgot the flowers), was truly extraordinaire! Whenever we had a question in the weeks leading up to our wedding, Rev. Christine responded in an amazingly quick fashion, whether it was email or the phone. I can't say enough good things about her! I know this isn't one of those things where you "do it again" like a lawn service or something, but I'd HIGHLY reccommend Rev. Christine to anyone.

Rev. Christine became a member of our families as they were blended on October 12, 2013. Words cannot describe how amazing Rev. Christine was at the Rehearsal and at the Ceremony. We had a very organized and straight forward rehearsal, which is exactly what we needed as 50 members of our family were in town early to attend the Rehearsal dinner right after. Rev. Christine went out of her way to ensure she interacted and got to know our families before the ceremony. Even though emotions were very high on our wedding day (lots of tears and laughter and wonderful moments) Rev. Christine ensured things went according to plan and smoothly! We received so many compliments on what was said and on every little detail that truly represented us. She was always, without delay, answering our emails and phone calls, aiding us in the planning process. Our wedding vows were exactly what we envisioned, and Rev. Christine guided us every step of the way as we endured our next chapter in our life. We are so happy we chose Rev. Christine to perform our service, and are reminded every time we look at our photos, just how lucky we are to have Rev. Christine as a part of our family. We can’t thank you enough- Always- Morgan and Jerry

I can't say enough about Rev. Christine. From the moment I met her with my then, fiance, I knew she was the one to perform our wedding ceremony. I'm Catholic and my husband is Christian so I ruled out a traditional, Catholic church wedding so his family would not feel alienated. Rev. Christine incorporated all the spiritual aspects that I have grown to love from my faith and a practical realities of commitment that were more suited to my husband's sensibilities. The best thing about Rev. Christine's ceremonies is that you can pick and chose many options from various ceremony examples she gives you at your first meeting. You can even have even write your own vows and mix them in with the traditional, old world wedding traditions. Rev. Christine is warm, wonderful and will put you at ease. She'll also take charge of a large or rowdy bunch! She's just an all-round wonderful person. She even offers pre-marital counseling services.

I cannot say enough great things about Rev. Christine and the service she provided us. She allowed us to totally customize our wedding ceremony, and we received so many compliments on what was said as well as her delivery. She was always quick to respond to emails and showed up early on the day of our event. We are so happy we chose Rev. Christine to perform our service, and are reminded every time we look at our photos - Rev. Christine has a big smile in all of them! :) Thanks again!

My partner and I needed help! We turned to Rev. Christine, and she made our simple ceremony into something special. We weren't prepared for the tears and emotion!

Rev. Christine communicated quickly, and made our planning easy (so important for preparing any size of wedding). Money shouldn't be a primary factor, but her service was definitely a great value. She provided a lot of information ahead of the ceremony, allowing us to customize the service just for us.

I am so glad I trusted the other weddingwire reviews. Rev. Christine was perfect!

Rev. Christine recently officiated our wedding ceremony and was great to work with. She helped us write and organize our ceremony and met with us numerous times to go over all of the details. Some officiants will just throw sample vows/readings at you, but Rev. Christine was much more personalized with her attention. We wanted a non-denom ceremony because my (now Husband) is Jewish and I am Christian. She has performed many similar ceremonies and we asked her advice on various topics for the ceremony. We felt very comfortable on our wedding day because Rev. Christine was able to calm us and give us tips beforehand. Very happy with our day as a result!

Rev. Christine is absolutely amazing from start to finish! I would highly recommend her as an officiant to any bride and groom. The entire wedding process was so easy to plan until it came to selecting an officiant. I found that many were unresponsive to my inquiries, too expensive, lacked customer service, etc. but that was until I contacted Rev. Christine. From the first email I knew that she was the one! She was so easy to work with, flexible, professional, and so much fun at the ceremony (even cracked a few jokes). Everyone raved about her! Rev. Christine didn't even complain that she had to stand out in 40 degree weather for the wedding ceremony. My husband and I will have great memories of our wedding ceremony thanks to Rev. Christine...we can't thank her enough! Lauren & Joseph - wedding March 3, 2013.

Brides! I can't say enough good about Rev Christine! Hear my story! My fiance and I started out planning our wedding with his church's pastor as our officiant. But when this pastor moved several states away we were left wondering where to find an officiant. It came down to actually searching on Google and this made me nervous. You never really know what's on the 'other side' of that link promising a wonderful person and wonderful ceremony. But when we met Rev Christine for the first time, all those worries disappeared. She was warm and friendly, has a good sense of humor, poise and when it came time to get to work, she was ever the professional leader making sure everything ran smoothly! We felt like we've known her our whole lives - her warmth made us feel like she wasn't a 'vendor' but a family friend who truly cares. So if you're uneasy about 'blindly' choosing an officiant over the internet - Rev Christine is your officiant! She is absolutely wonderful and we would definately recommend her to our friends!!

Christine is amazing. We wanted a spritual ceremony, my family is Jewish and presbytarian and his is irish catholic. Christine met with us and helped us design a ceremony that included traditional prayers, spritual sayings and personalized flair. She helped us write our own vows and really took charge of directing our wedding party for our rehearsal and the day of. She was extremely flexible with regard to the timing and every member of our bridal party's feelings. We had to move our ceremony the day of due to a huricane, and she helped with every step-creating an aisle for me to walk down, calming down my little sister and remembering every detail with a smile on her face.
She is just a great person, and if you get the chance to meet with her, I imagine you will feel the same way. She loves what she does, she is great at it, and does not charge a million dollars to get the job done.
I am excited for when the time comes to renew our vows, to call upon her services again.

She did a great job of taking control of our often times distracted bridal party and explaining everything very clearly. Great experience!

My now husband and I had been together for almost 5 years when Christine married us this past August. We have a big wedding planned for this coming summer, but wanted to be married privately just him and I. She drove all the way out to where we live in DC and met us in a small park we had chosen to do the ceremony in. It was very beautiful and relaxed which was exactly what I had envisioned. She also offered took pictures of us with my phone, which I hadn't even thought about. She was very professional, responded to e-mails quickly, and was very nice to work with. I definitely recommend Rev. Christine McGunigale for your wedding!

The point of any wedding ceremony is exchanging the vows and the special moment where the two say I DO!

So,you want the best! That is why you need Reverend Christine. She is SPECIAL, and has a knack for adapting to every situation while still executing her duties as Master of Ceremony!

She is professional, returns email and phone calls quickly, communicates well, is reasonably priced and caters the ceremony to your heart's desire! She has a warm, friendly, caring personality and makes everyone feel comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

My husband and I can't thank Rev. Christine enough for our beautiful and memorable wedding ceremony. We actually live in NJ and were unable to coordinate a weekend we could meet with her before the wedding, so she set up a skype meeting for us to talk face to face and go through our ceremony. She had lots of lovely options to choose from for every part of ceremony and was happy to let us tweak it a bit to make it perfect for us. We felt so much more at ease after our rehearsal with her (she came twice that weekend to our venue even though it was a pretty long drive for her!). On the day of the wedding she was all business, making sure everything started on schedule (which our wonderful photographers were trying to thwart :) and went off without a hitch. While planning I was definitely most nervous about the ceremony since to me it was the most important part and I could not have been happier with choosing Rev. Christine!

Rev. Christine was awesome! From the first meeting she made my husband and I feel very comfortable and confident that we made the right choice. She responded to my questions in a timely manner. She had unique choices for her ceremony packages to make our ceremony "ours". I loved knowing exactly what she was going to say (so there were no surprises and on that day my mind was a blur). She remained calmed and collected when we didn't have a rehearsal or much prep time before the ceremony with my large bridal party. Everything during the ceremony went off without a hitch and I have only gotten compliments about her from my guests. Rev. Christine was very reasonably priced for my budget. Do not look any further- I would recommend her to anyone!

Rev. Christine was absolutely amazing during the whole process. We had our initial meeting and I knew I wanted her to officiate my ceremony. She was very open to any suggestions we had and was willing to work with us.

During my rehearsal there was a lot of mishaps, but she was able to remain calm and continue with my rehearsal professional.... and was also very comforting when I became a little emotional during my rehearsal.

For our ceremony, she did a fantastic job. I was very pleased with how everything turned out! I highly suggest her! :)

My husband and I hate speaking in front of people but whenever we felt even the slightest bit of nervousness we looked at her and she helped us relax. We will be forever grateful to her for being apart of our special day!

Rev. Christine was really lovely to work with. My now husband and I wanted a non-religious ceremony, but with the flexibility to craft passages and wrote our vows. Rev. Christine was able to provide all the things we wanted and was easy to contact whenever we had questions.

She's got some wonderful samples that made cultivating our ceremony "script" easy, but meaningful.

Definitely the most flexible vendor we had and her pricing was much more reasonable than some other officiants I researched. Enjoyed her professionalism during our rehearsal ceremony as well.

Rev. Christine was simply wonderful! She was very accommodating, reassuring, and professional. We planned our small wedding on a rather short notice, and mostly by e-mail. And in the run-up to the wedding, Rev. Christine was there to guide us, giving us plenty of options, allowing us to customize our ceremony, and gently encouraging us to personalize it with our own words--something that we're both glad we did. Several of our out-of-town guests, including my in-laws, were late due to an accident on the highway, and Rev. Christine waited patiently for an hour till they arrived, all the time calming our jittery nerves. The ceremony was simply wonderful, as so many of our family and friends attested afterwards: touching, simple and sincere. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant for our special day!

Rev. Christine was fantastic! During our face-to-face meeting, she listened to what we had in mind for our ceremony and never tried to persuade us to “do-it differently”. She was always available and quickly responded to any questions or fears that we had. We wrote our own vows and she turned them into masterpieces! The ceremony was exactly how we had pictured it and everyone enjoyed it and almost all shed a tear! And, the best part was that we did get married at a local bar/restaurant with all our family friends.

What can I say? Rev Christine has presided over three of my family's weddings, and from "jumping to broom" to the "teddy bear ceremony" to "releasing the butterflies," she has always been very flexible and willing to do something different to make our weddings that much more personalized. Her help during the rehearsals has been invaluable; she's always willing to spend a little more time to get everything "just right." Rev. Christine has provided three beautiful ceremonies for three very special couples and made their weddings as special as they were. Obviously our family loves her...we keep inviting her back!

Reverend Christine was wonderful to work with planning our wedding ceremony in October 2012. We planned our wedding from out of state, so our interaction was done via phone or email leading up to the big day. She was very responsive and offered a number of options to customize our ceremony. She was also quick to respond to any questions or concerns leading up to the wedding. We would highly recommend her to anyone planning their wedding ceremony--she was lovely to work with.

Rev Christine did an amazing job officiating our wedding ceremony. We decided to do a private elopement with just the two of us and she made it very special for us. The script she read for us was beautiful and very fitting for us and our religion. She offered to take pictures for us and suggested different poses which all came out very nice. We are so pleased with her services and the great memories she helped create. We will forever be grateful.

I cant say nice enough things. Really cant.

SHe really helped us make a non-religous ceremony that wouldnt offend those who are religious.
She guided my husband carefully through all of his steps.
She reminded me to breathe.
She was really personable with our parents.
She even sat with the kids, and TALKED to them, at the rehearsal dinner.

There really wasnt enough thanking her for everything she did for us.

I would highly recommend her.

Christine was lovely and was very helpful and enthusiastic when we spoke to her on the phone, she was happy to to give options and accommodate the ceremony you wanted. However, at the ceremony she didn't give much direction which left us a bit confused in terms of exactly where to stand and did not offer an introduction which lead to us wandering in without much of a cue; she also did not discuss any of these things with us immediately prior to the ceremony which we were perhaps expecting. We got the impression that she is very willing to do as you ask but does not necessarily adopt a proactive stance on nailing down the minutiae such as where to stand. This lack of structure and guidance made things a bit awkward. Christine also tried to suggest changes to the ring section of the ceremony at the last minute when we had discussed exactly what we wanted said beforehand. On top of that the ceremony itself did not entirely resemble what we had sent her, a number of lines were spoken that were not present in the ceremony script we had sent to her.

Christine is lovely but on this occasion we were a little let down by the lack of attention to detail and the fact that what was spoken did not fully resemble our final script.

A Beautiful Ceremony by Rev. Christine responded with the following comments:

I am very sorry that you feel this way. At your request, I used the script that you gave me without editing anything. I only suggested that when you were doing your vows (because I understood that you wanted to put rings on at that time and you had not mentioned a ring ceremony in the script) I thought it would be nice to mention, "I now ask you..." as you placed this rings on each others fingers, but when you said "no" that was fine with me (I really like to give the couple what they want). When I got there, we sat down and talked. To my understanding, you directed me where you wanted to stand. I felt as though you had a direct vision of everything about the ceremony and I wanted to respect and follow your direction. I am very sorry and sad that you feel this way! I was really trying to follow your vision and direction. I really felt you knew what you wanted, how you wanted it and I didn't want to disrupt your vision. You're a beautiful couple and I wish you many, many years of happiness together.
