Gary Fine was the BEST officiant we could have asked for. He was so precise, so professional and VERY knowledgeable. He made the cermony very personalized, thoughtful, sweet and funny. He gave us plenty of materials and information about what goes into a wedding ceremony, and he made the ceremony fit our personalities exactly. We met with Gary for a long time, and when we left we immediately knew we would be calling him back asking if he could do the ceremony. His expertise and professionalism is unmatched. Gary came well before the ceremony started and afterwards he even visited with a few of our guests during cocktail hour. Our guests remarked MULTIPLE times during the night what a memorable ceremony that was. If you are looking for an officiant chose Gary--he is really the best that we have seen out there, and we have been to our share of weddings. He was fantastic! Chose him!

We could not be happier that Gary officiated our wedding - and so many of our guests came up to us afterwards and noted that it was the best officiated wedding that they had ever been to. We could not agree more! We interviewed over 10 different officiants for the job and Gary was the clear winner. Gary did an amazing job getting to know us and captured our personalities so well throughout the ceremony. His planning process was not overbearing or too cumbersome and yet many of our guests also noted that they thought he had known us for years. His ceremony - a tricky one with an Christian/American groom and a Muslim/Middle Eastern bride - was a touching event, humor mixed with the solemnness of the occasion. We highly recommend Gary to anyone and everyone!!

I will begin by saying that the actual wedding ceremony that was delivered by Gary was well prepared and very nice. We had selected him because we felt he would personalize the service, which was something very important to us and he did just that. However, if we had to do this all over again, we would have found someone else who could personalize a service.

The level of arrogance and unprofessionalism shown by Gary has been mind blowing. If you refer to his website, he makes seven guarantees. He was not available 24 hours a day leading up to our ceremony. In fact, we went for nearly a week and a half (right before the wedding) with no answers to emails or voicemails. His excuse was that it was wedding season and it gets busy. During the week of our wedding, it should have been our wedding that was top priority.

Another guarantee is that he will arrive one hour prior to the ceremony. He was in the town where we had it one hour before, but when it was only 1/2 hour until the ceremony started and he had not arrived we called him. He was down the road in his car reading a book.

Given all this, we went through the ceremony and enjoyed our day. Now, 28 days after our wedding, we still do not have our marriage certificate. Technically, he has until today to get it to the Town Clerk for recording, but how long does it take to sign a certificate and mail it in. We have been unable to update medical insurance, records at the RMV, bank accounts, etc. Our Town Clerk has now left messages for him that have gone unreturned.

Lastly, after the ceremony we heard from a vendor at the wedding that described his interaction with Gary. This vendor has done many weddings and said he has never dealt with someone so arrogant and who talked so condescendingly to him. We also found out that Gary spoke disparagingly about the groom to a guest at our wedding.

Does he do a nice job with the ceremony -- yes. Can you probably find someone else who will do the same and with more professionalism -- absolutely.

Gary Fine is awesome! He is such a versatile officiant, and had so many great ideas for ways to personalize our ceremony to make it memorably ours. He has a very positive attitude and made us feel comfortable going into our big day. He knows exactly when to be serious and when to use humor, and he absolutely knows how to customize a wedding to be exactly what you dream of. Our guests said they really enjoyed our ceremony, from the funny tidbits about each of us to the personal parts, to the importance of family that we wanted to weave in. I would definitely recommend Gary Fine to any couple looking to get married in the New England area.

I can't tell you how many compliments we received on our beautiful ceremony. Gary truly took the time to get to know us, to learn our story, and to create a perfect ceremony to fit us. Friends of ours who are recently engaged were so impressed that they're also looking into booking Gary! I only gave a 3 for responsiveness because I felt that there was a lack of response in email communications. I do realize that email is not everyone's choice of communication, however, and Gary did answer the phone each time I called to follow up on my emails. I would highly recommend Gary to any bride.
