My husband and I were planning our wedding from Phoenix, so unfortunately we could not meet Kreig in person the first time. He was very flexible and was able to meet with us over the phone. Right away, we knew we had made the right decision to have him be our officiant. Both of us absolutely loved that he took the time to get to know each of us and why we love each other. During the ceremony, that really made a difference, because there was an element of humor there, but it was touching because it fit our relationship perfectly! He was very calm and performed a beautiful ceremony, in fact our ceremony was so beautiful, we are still having guests comment on how wonderful it was! The entire wedding was extremely wonderful, but Kreig certainly helped make this wedding a beautiful one!

After we first met Kreig, we knew we had made the right decision for our ceremony officiant. He had taken the time to get to know each of us and our relationship prior to the wedding. At the ceremony, he mixed a perfect blend of humor and spiritual overtone. He has a wonderful presence that makes you feel calm and reassured. He performed such a beautiful and meaningful ceremony that all of our guests asked how long we have known him and where they could go listen to his services. I have to admit that the ceremony was one of my most memorable moments of the wedding - I have watched the video over and over again ... and love every minute! It was perfect!

Our friends and family still talk about how good he was up there with us and thought we knew him for years the way he spoke about us. We met Kreig for 2 hours a month prior to the date. Thank you soo much for making our day perfect Kreig...

Kreig was wonderful to work with. He made us feel very comfortable and genuinely cared about getting to know us. We loved that he wanted to meet with us more than once. When we saw him at the wedding it felt like we really knew him. He did an amazing job and was very professional. We highly recommend Kreig. He even made an appearance in our photo booth and signed our guest book! Years from now when we go back to look at our wedding video I'm glad to know our officiant is someone we really cared about. Thank you Kreig for making a difference on our special day!

Pastor Kreig did a fantastic job. At our initial meeting he made us feel extremely comfortable & we immediately knew he was the one. He really took the time to get to know us as a couple & help guide us in the direction we wanted to go.

On the day of rehearsal (which he went out of his way to attend only minutes after arriving back in town!) & our wedding, he was prompt, relaxed & brought everyone together. We really could not have asked for a better officiant & highly recommend him to anyone!

Thanks Pastor Kreig!

My wife and I highly recommend Pastor Krieg! We have received numerous compliments from our friends and family regarding Krieg's officiating. His use of humor, honesty and heartfelt words made our ceremony outstanding. We feel as though we have known him for years. Kreig is highly professional and went out of his way to ensure that our wedding went smoothly. He returned emails and phone calls promptly and put us at ease as he answered all of our questions. Kreig gave us valuable guidance while allowing us to customize our ceremony. We strongly urge any couples looking for a marriage officiant to consider Pastor Kreig if they would like a memorable ceremony that everyone will enjoy.

Kreig did a fantastic job! Our ceremony was absolutely perfect.
My new Hubby and I had a few things that were very important to us in selecting an officiant - helpful, personal, fun, not religious, timely on the day of and with responsiveness prior to the wedding and just a general feeling of "hitting it off" with the man that was going to marry us. Well, it took one meeting with Kreig and we looked no further. We immediately knew that he was the perfect Reverend for us!
He met us at a coffee shop on several occasions so that he could get to know us. Because he did this, our ceremony was very personalized with a special message he wrote and inserted into the ceremony. Although he is a Reverend, he respected our wished to keep religion out of the ceremony and he found a way to make it spiritual in a way that fit us.
His knowledge about all aspects of ceremonies and the many different rituals involved was very helpful. He laid out a ceremony plan for us months in advance so we really had a chance to get to know what to expect.
He was very responsive prior to the wedding day and early on the day of the actual wedding.
The most imortant thing was the "hitting it off" feeling we were looking for. Many different people who attended the wedding asked us how we knew Kreig. They couldn't believe it when we told them we found him online :) He entertained everyone!
My new hubby and I are a bit silly and sarcastic so we really enjoyed getting to laugh and it eased our nerves. We both screwed up the same line and Kreig was right there to slip us back into place.

Thanks Kreig, you really made our day extra special.

He spoke beautifully, made our guests laugh, and managed to perfectly execute the exact ceremony we had envisioned. Kreig was so easy to talk to during our meetings, and he even inspired our honeymoon destination, Bali! Thank you so much Pastor Kreig!

I could not be more happy that we chose Kreig Gammelgard to be the officiant for our wedding in Escondido. It was truly a wonderful experience. Kreig made the ceremony warm, personal, funny, sweet - it was so memorable and my husband and I agree that the ceremony itself could not have gone better. We loved every moment of it.

Kreig was very flexible and didn't bat an eye when we crossed off most of the typical ceremony components. He somehow made the whole thing so simple and fun. We also found his professionalism to be extremely helpful. When your family forgets where to sit and you end up missing a chair for grandma - you definitely want a professional up there directing traffic. He was wonderful. We've received MANY compliments about what a great officiant we had. Thank you, Kreig!

I knew from my first meeting with Pastor Kreig that he was the perfect fit for us. He didn't rush through our meeting. He gave us his complete attention. He was extremely thorough in getting to know us. He asked all the right questions and made us feel completely at ease.
He is also very quick to respond to emails and phone calls.
When you meet him, you will see what I mean. I feel extremely blessed that we found him! He also has a wonderful speaking voice.

I highly recommend Pastor Kreig!

My fiance and I searched high and low for an officiant to marry us. We were very picky with who we wanted to marry us, because we felt that was one of the most important vendors of our wedding. We needed to be very selective in finding the perfect person, and make sure they had everything we were looking for. Kreig Gammelgard was exactly what were were looking for. He was personable with us. He took the time to get to know us. He met with us several times, in order for him to get to know us, and make sure our vows were exactly what was right for us. And best of all, with getting to know us as a couple on a more persona level, he surprised us with the most beautiful message during our wedding ceremony. We were very satisfied with his work, and I am sure all of you will be too!

Kreig was very helpful to us. He was willing to work with us on our schedule as we were planning our wedding from a different state. It was nice to work with someone who was willing to answer our questions, however little they were. Other officiants that we spoke with seemed as though they just wanted our money and didn't care about us and our personalities and making the ceremony what we wanted. We would recommend Kreig to any one searching for a great officiant.

I can't say enough good stuff about Kreig! He took the time to get to know us and that was truly reflected in our ceremony. It was the most beautiful ceremony ever! All of our friends and family raved about him; we picked the best- and I did a lot of research (and met others that weren't as good) to find him. We couldn't be happier! He was early, professional, and he came to the rehearsal! (Which many officiants refuse to do!) He allowed us to write our own vows and include a few Catholic prayers and traditions. He made the entire wedding party aware of what they were doing and when and made sure everyone knew their roles. Overall, he made it all about us. Don't choose any other random guy to do your ceremony; use Kreig, he's the best!!!

Pastor Kreig was such a pleasure; completely professional while at the same time being very warm and welcoming. He is a great listener; learns your story and then creates the most fitting way to piece together the perfect ceremony for the couple. He asks what YOU want and adjusts according to that, does not force his opinion on the style of the ceremony. I felt totally comfortable sitting down and sharing my background with him and was interested in listening to his so that we may understand each other. I felt as though I was talking to an old friend (and I think thats exactly what you want when you are having someone conduct such a monumental day as a wedding should be). He was a blessing and an honor to have as our Pastor and wedding officiant. I would absolutely and highly recommend him for yours!

Best,

Kevin and Leah O'Connell

In addition to providing us with scripture and vow options for the service, he also recommended the perfect beach location for our small, intimate wedding. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of using his service.

Kreig Gammelgard officiated our wedding in San Diego, CA and he was beyond fantastic! He created a personal, intimate, funny, romatic and heartfelt ceremony that embodied my husband and I through every word. Even though we had only met a handful of time, it was like Kreig had known us for years and that came through in his service. He was worth every penny and I would reccommend him to any couple who is looking for a personal and unique wedding service.

Thank you Krieg for making our day not only memorable for us, but for all of our guests as well!

Kreig, was truly one of the best people we met and worked with during our wedding planning/wedding day process. Kreig is a wonderful pastor who will make your marriage ceremony incredibly special. He has a caring, genuine personality that makes him an ideal officiant for anyone looking to have a very memorable and meaningful wedding ceremony. My wife and I were very pleased with how personal Kreig made our ceremony and each of our wedding guest were impressed with his candor, sense of humor, and professionalism. We got to spend multiple times getting together with Kreig, prior to the ceremony, and developed a wonderful friendship with him!
I highly recommend Kreig and I tie the knot. ~ Kevin Murrey, married 9-20-09

Kreig was a great pastor for our wedding! He was funny and so easy to work with. He was totally open to our ideas and incorporating what was important to us into the ceremony, but also had really great ideas and suggestions of his own. We met a few times before the wedding and talked about all kinds of things. I was pleasantly surprised when he talked about a lot of those things throughout our ceremony. Some of them we hadn't even remembered telling him about. He really paid attention to what we said was important in our lives. He also offered us very meaningful advice for our life together as a married couple. We will definitely recommend him to our friends!

Kreig did an amazing job at our wedding! We had several guests ask us if he was our pastor growing up because he knew so much about us, but in actuality we found him online and met with him only a couple times before the wedding. He does an amazing job at getting to know you as a couple and individually. He added his own personal touches throughout the ceremony, which brought about tears and laughter at all the perfect times. All of the readings and prayers that were read at our ceremony were personalized by him to better suit us as a couple. Kreig has a very pleasant and calming demeanor about him that made us instantly comfortable with him. Our ceremony was even more memorable because of the thoughtfulness that he put into it. Thanks Kreig!

Krieg was absolutely fabulous. He met with my husband and I a couple times before the wedding. The ceremony was individual and was more than we could ever have dreamed. It was done the way we wanted with some traditional parts plus had individuality that fit with both of us and made people laugh in agreement! Guests at our wedding commented then and even months after what a wonderful and personal ceremony it was.

I would DEFINITELY recommend Krieg for your ceremony.

I was amazed at how great Craig Gammelgard was in officitating our wedding. He was able to capture both the sincerity of both my husband and I as well as embrace that we do have a very humorous side to us. He was able to roll with all the punches and present us to our family and friends with such grace as a newly married couple. He is not only very professional, but he has great sense of humor and very special talent in incorporating religion into the ceremony without making it overwhelming, which was very important to us. We wanted a sincere ceremony with religion sprinkled within the cereomony. We received overwhelming compliments from the guests who attended the wedding, saying how perfect the ceremony was and what a great officiant and where did I find him. I proudly said online! It was a strange way to find a person to unite us in marriage online, but once we met him we knew he was the perfect fit.

I can not begin to put into words how impressed my family, friends and I were with the ceremony that Kreig designed for our wedding. Mike and I were getting married in San Diego, CA while planning it from Miami, FL. I was daunted by the thought of flying out for a week and finding a minister that we not only liked, but who would be able to meet us once and deliver a heart-felt ceremony that truly represented us as a couple and expressed the enormity and seriousness of the day while keeping it warm and friendly. Kreig did just that and he was the best "vendor" of the entire day for us. I have to place quotes around vendor because he really didn't feel like a vendor to us. He stroked a cord that created the impression he'd known us all our lives and that was delivered during the ceremony and I'm still impressed with it. I should also note that he went out of his way to incorporate aspects into the ceremony that were special to Mike and I like a unity ceremony featuring the story of Cana where we turned water into wine by using dye. He elaborated on the idea and wrote this gorgeous piece comparing the evolution of a marriage to the growth of a fine bottle of wine. If you knew Mike and I you'd know this was very fitting for us.
