It's hard typing an "About Us" when the fact of the matter, for me, it’s just NOT about me (or us)... It’s about YOU and what you envision in a perfect ceremony. I am very fortunate to have already met so many wonderful couples, their family and friends, and reuniting with some lifelong friends.

I welcome the opportunity to get to know who you are and what your vision for one of the most important days (moments) in time. I provide a service for people that is positive and uplifting. It is an honor to be a part of when two people publicly, vocally, legally, and emotionally profess their love and commitment to each other, their God, family, friends, and sometimes complete strangers. I enjoy being with people at their happiest and this "job" (NO WAY) is a great opportunity to live that and meet really wonderful people.

There are many options for getting married... you can go the church/temple/synagogue or you can go to the Courthouse... I see my service as meeting you halfway in between. I have never been presumptive, "drink my kool-aid and this will be the best wedding service EVER!"... it’s just not me! What I am is an expert at is getting to know what people want in a wedding ceremony and seeing if there is a way that I can help them in achieving that. I will help you write vows that are sincere and resemble your commitment. It will need to have a dash (or six) of humor because, after all… it can’t be TOO serious.. yeah, that’s against MY religion!

So, pick a place... whether along the many vast miles of pristine shore line of the Atlantic Ocean in MD, DE, or VA, private resort/venue, the many scenic spots along the Chesapeake Bay region, private home, or paddling out at sunrise in the surf... wherever you can image, again, I welcome the opportunity. If you don't know where to start, well that's ok too! I have vast resources of experienced, professional, and reputable venues/vendors that can help achieve your expectations.

Thanks for reading!

'Rev Giz' was fantastic! Several people asked us how we knew him...we didn't! You'd never have known, though. I spoke to him via phone on the afternoon of the wedding, my husband met him in the hotel lobby a few minutes before the ceremony, and we'd completed an information form online previously. Since we'd wanted a beach ceremony and the weather wasn't cooperating, he was extremely flexible as we waited and figured out an alternative (I didn't want to do it on the dance floor of the reception venue), and literally went with the flow as my groom and his buddy came up with the perfect plan. Jeff's speeches fit our style, crowd, and timeline as if well-rehearsed. He even agreed to take our pro photographer's camera (a close friend), climb up on the lifeguard stand, and snap several full group photos for us so the photographer could be in them. He was a big part of the perfect wedding!!!

Reverend Gisriel was awesome. Planning a wedding in Va. from Pa. was a little difficult at times- he was able to smooth things out and ease my mind when I had concerns. We made a slight change in venue the day of the event- Rev Gis was totally flexible. Our guests loved the service- we had many compliments after our service that Rev. Gis was perfect. It was a casual outdoor wedding- and he had the guests laughing and enjoying themselves- They actually wanted to and enjoyed listening to every word!

Jeff did an amazing job! If it weren't for him my husband would have been a nervous wreck waiting for me to walk down the isle. He still tells me to this day that Jeff put him at ease and made this process a lot less "scary" than he thought it would be. Jeff conducted our rehearsal the evening before and made sure to answer any last minute questions up until we began the ceremony. Jeff was flexible with the sandcastle contest that was occurring at the same time as our ceremony. He made sure that the guests were happy while waiting and kept the ceremony lighthearted, simple, and it truly spoke to how we are as a couple. Highly recommend!

My husband and I HIGHLH recommend Rev. Giz to everyone looking for an officiant. We heard about him from other couples and could not have been any happier with him and his service! Being that we planned a wedding all the way from Ohio, we never got the pleasure of meeting Jeffrey until 20 minutes before the wedding and we were not disappointed! He kept in touch with us via e-mail and was very prompt with returning any questions or concerns we had. Thank you, Jeffrey for being that perfect puzzle piece to our special day! Wish we could re-live it all over again! :)

I have very high standards and my wedding was clearly a very important personal event. My first choice would have been someone I already knew but was dismayed when I discovered the difficulty in such a task with needing to be ordained in different states etc- BUT .......it was a blessing because we found Jeffrey and he was perfect! He fit right in. He is excellent at determining your style and adapting to it. He is funny, personal, professional with depth and a thoughtfulness - you are lucky to get him if he is available- snatch him up!

Someone told us that Jeff is like a friend that walks through your door. And he is. Laid back and fun and easy to work with.

Jeff worked with us to put together the ceremony that we wanted. His experience with various non-traditional cermonies was certainly valuable. He was familiar with what we had in mind and even had samples from which we could work to develop our own.

There was a period during which Jeff was going through some serious transitions and was hard to reach. But that cleared up and was fine through the wedding.

Jeff was very flexible with scheduling meetings prior to the wedding and through last minute changes.

Very professional with an excellent sense of humor he kept the ceremony from being boring. Even reminded me to breathe as I was watching Katie walk down the aisle...

It was a real pleasure to work with Jeff.

My husband and I planned our wedding from 3 hours away which led to me having to make a lot of choices and selections through email and phone. I was referred to Jeffrey Gisriel from our wedding venue and I knew after communicating with him through email the first time he would be the right guy for the job. I didn’t meet Jeffrey until the day before our wedding and we felt as if we had known him for years. He was very professional, funny, friendly and most of all seemed to "fit right in" with our wedding party and family. Jeffrey took charge of the rehearsal and I left there feeling so good and prepared for the wedding day. There are no words to describe how perfect our wedding day was and we owe a huge part of that to Jeffrey. He was such a pleasure to have as our officiant and so many of my guests said they really enjoyed his ceremony. If you are undecided about who to use for your wedding officiant, I have no doubt in my mind you will be more than pleased and so happy if you choose Jeffrey.

Words can't express how happy my husband and I were with our decision to have Jeffrey officiate our beach wedding ceremony. He was so professional yet added little touches of humor to keep us relaxed and focused on each other. We.communicated via email and only met the day before our wedding but our guests (and we did) felt like he knew us a long time. The whole ceremony from thru readings to the welcome and actual marriage part..everything felt like it was written just for us. Our guests can't stop talking about how sweet and fun our ceremony was. I would recommend him over and over again to anyone getting married in the Delaware beach/ocean City area. You won't find a better officiant!

Our first meeting, he spent alot of time trying to get to know us so he could taylor the ceremony to fit our personalities. He is VERY funny and personable. We heard throughout the reception from many guests - he was great, where did you find him? He helped make our day the perfect day that it was.

In fact, we modified it quite a bit. He read it word-for-word in a tone and manner perfect for the occasion. We highly recommend Jeffrey Gisriel.

We were delighted to have Jeffrey perform my daughter's wedding ceremony. He was professional, articulate and courteous - the consummate professional! I would recommend him to any bride. He presents himself both before and during the service as a professional that truly knows what he is doing. His speech and diction are clear and concise so that everyone can hear and understand the wedding ceremony. He listens and accommodates the type of service that the bride and groom are looking to have. I couldn't recommend him highly enough!.

I could not be more pleased that I found Jeffrey Gisriel and asked him to be the officiant for our wedding. My husband and I are not religious and do not attend church so there was no obvious candidate to be our officiant. From the beginning, I was concerned about selecting someone I didn't know and who didn't know us to perform our ceremony on one of the most important days of our lives. I saw that Rev. Giz had fabulous reviews and decided to contact him. From our first phone conversation I could tell he would be perfect for us. He is very easy-going and charismatic. My husband and I had no idea what went into performing a ceremony and Rev. Giz was there to help us every step of the way. He provided a sample ceremony script which we were able to edit to our own liking. He gave us ideas about making our ceremony unique and still remain non-denominational, such as having a sand ceremony. At the rehearsal, he took charge and had everyone practice the ceremony quickly without being rude or bossy. The ceremony on the actual day went flawlessly. I received so many comments from my family and guests about how wonderful it was, most especially the words Rev. Giz said and how thoughtfully he delivered them! Everyone asked how long we'd known him and were shocked to hear we had only just met in person the day before! They mentioned that the way he spoke was as if he'd known us for years. I would definitely recommend Jeffrey Gisriel to officiate your ceremony. Not to mention, his rates are extremely reasonable and far below others I have contacted!

We found Rev. Giz here on Wedding Wire and after reading all the great reviews, I just knew he would fit perfectly with our wedding. We ended up emailing back and forth a few times and we booked him without meeting him. I was a bit nervous about never meeting him but when we finally did a few months before the wedding all my nerves went away. He made us feel so calm and relaxed and confident in our decision to book him. He sent us several sample vows and was receptive to some samples we sent him. Rev. Giz totally left it up to us to design the ceremony that fit us and I am so pleased with how it all turned out!

We only had one issue, where he was 15 minutes late to the ceremony and never called us but we were able to contact him. The ceremony was short and sweet just how we wanted so the time delay didn't end up affected us in the long run. The only other thing I would say is he was much easier to get in contact with by phone rather than email since I had many un-returned emails, but that was not such a big deal.

Gis is the best. Period. He is always a professional, without being rigid, in any way. Our wedding ceremony was completely customized to us, with Gis's help, and was just what we wanted it to be: different from everyone else's, while still being traditional enough to feel like a wedding. He gets extra points for dealing so well with our crazy group at the rehearsal, and taking everything in stride. Bringing both fun and order to our insanity is no small task, but Gis is (again) THE BEST!!!

Rev. Giz was a fantastic addition to our wedding! He was positive, supportive, and encouraging, and did a great job officiating our wedding ceremony. He helped my fiance and me in writing our own ceremony, and provided very valuable feedback in finalizing the ceremony. On the day of the wedding, he was wonderful - providing support to both my father and my fiance in the moments leading up to my arrival and the start of the ceremony. He completely took control over the signing and handling of the marriage licenses, which my husband and I really appreciated as one less distraction to keep us from enjoying our reception!

Overall, I would highly recommend Rev. Giz to anyone, and look forward to staying in touch with him post-wedding.

We went with Rev Giz because of all of the phenomenal reviews we read. His price was about the same as most other officiants in the area so that didn't play much of a factor. Giz was responsive to emails and when we met with him months before our wedding we were very happy with our choice.

However, the weekend of our wedding and after, our feelings changed. The night of our rehearsal Rev Giz was 15 minutes late, a fellow officiant (we did not know before this that the operation was more than just Giz) was there to tell us that Giz was running late. The rehearsal was impersonal and Rev Giz was less than warm. The day of our wedding the groom walked on the beach to find Rev Giz no where in sight without so much as a phone call to the Bride or Groom. The other officiant from the rehearsal was to be our "stand-in" because Giz had "an emergency". The stand-in, Rod, actually did a great job, but told us nothing about what was being done with the marriage certificate. This all left us a little disappointed, but facebook postings and pictures proving that Giz's emergency was actually another wedding is beyond a disappointment! We booked Giz 10 months in advance - to double book is unprofessional, especially on a day of such importance!

Updated Response:
WE WERE PLEASED WITH ROD - HE WAS GREAT! However, Rev. Giz did NOTHING to put us at ease. He didn't even call us to tell us he couldn't make it...because he had booked another wedding. I WOULD HAVE BEEN EASILY PLEASED IF YOU HAD SHOWN UP AS PROMISED AND PAID FOR!

Although this bride appears to be upset and I can understand if this was the case, she should be upset. Her assumptions are unfortunately untrue. I did everything I could to place them at ease and unfortunately, you can't please everyone.

If you are looking for someone with a sense of humor, but who remains professional, someone who is down to earth, well-organized, and has a great presence, you need to contact Rev Giz! Not only did he make our beach wedding ceremony beautiful with the vows we wrote, he was very pleasant, he kept things light-hearted and less stressful than wedding plans needs to be. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to couples looking to "tie the knot".
He is the BEST and we could not be happier!! Thanks Rev Giz!

Jeffery is in a word….. Amazing! Our wedding was pretty last minute due to my school schedule and hospital clinical rotation; mixed with a last minute need for health insurance. Never the less, Jeffery eased our anxieties with his casual demeanor and light hearted sense of humor. When the day arrived, his conduct was more than professional, noted in the way he gathered our guest together, kept everyone’s attention with his eloquent words which brought both humor and smiles combined with a few wet eyes, as he acknowledged the spirits of my parents as they are no longer with us. If my husband and I had it to do over again, even with all the time and money in the world, we would definitely have Jeffery officiating. Thus it is our utmost pleasure to recommend Jeffery. I can honestly say he is Amazing!

Jeffrey was wonderful. I surprised my husband and daughter with a vow renewal service for our 10th anniversary. After shoveling out after the blizzard of 2010, we were fortunate to have a sunny, yet chilly sand ceremony on the beach in Bethany Beach. Since this was all a suprise for the family, I was doing all the organizing on my own. Jeffrey helped me with our vows, even communicating with me while on vacation from Florida. He was able to write our vows to include our 6-year old in the ceremony, making her an integral part of our event. Our service was perfect for our family - low-key, romantic, and very fun. We could not have asked for a more intimate ceremony. Whether large and formal, or in our case, small and informal, Jeffrey would be the perfect choice for a couple's special day.

Initially, I was going to plan a traditional wedding, however, the more I thought about it, I wanted just an intimate ceremony with my close friends and family, which is not a large number of people. My traditional wedding quickly turned into an escapade to see how fast I could pull everything together! We're talking 3-4 days, maximum. I looked up "officiants" near Salisbury, MD on Wedding Wire.com and found Rev Giz's name and information. I e-mailed him and within minutes, he responded within minutes and was willing to officiate my marriage ceremony 4 days later. Even if I had procured all the other necessities (i.e. location, friends, restaurant), I wouldn't have been able to have had my "quickie wedding" without Rev Giz's help.

He corresponded with us by email and even sent us a copy of the ceremony to see if there was anything we wanted to change or add. He was also willing to marry us at sunrise. We were able to say our vows as the sun was rising behind us. Read less

Jeffrey was a great wedding officiant. Since he was from the area he helped me find places in Ocean City to go to. He always responded to my emails as soon as he got them.

Mr. Jeffrey "Rev. Giz" Gisriel was extremely professional and made our Beach Wedding a lasting memory. Although we are hundreds of miles away from Ocean City MD, from our initial contact with him through the wedding and beyond, Mr. Gisriel was personalable and we were pleased to have chosen him for our ceremony. We would recommend his services to ANYONE and feel confidant that they would have chosen a great officiant for their ceremony.

Jeffrey was very open to doing our civil ceremony on the beach and really was one of the highlights of our day. I would recommend him as an officiant for anyone in the Delmarva area. He is very professional and one heck of a cool guy! He would truly be perfect for any type of ceremony you need.

Peace and love!

Rev. Gisriel comes highly recommended from my husband and I. His flexibilty and knowledge of the marital ceremony helped us plan a wedding in a month. From the moment I spoke to Rev. Giz I knew he was the perfect officiant for the type of ceremony my husband and I chose to have. He wrote a beautiful arrangement of vows incorporating contemporary and Irish traditions at a VERY reasonable price. Not only did he make himself readily available on short notice, he also gave up his morning of FATHERS DAY to marry my husband and I. Not to mention, waiting for the bride for 30 mins she was late for her own wedding. Rev. Gisriel is 100% amazing in our book and will continue to be! If you are looking for a 5 star officiant, with a modern flare, you have found him!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Rev. Giz organized the ceramony for us and let us put personal touches in, as well. He was on time (very important) and even hung out with us and our guests to celebrate afterwards. We would recommend him to anyone.

I highly recommend Jeffrey Gisriel as a wedding officiant. We had exceptionally bad weather during an outside ceremony and Jeffrey kept a clear head and continued on as if nothing had happened. He kept my guests comfortable and happy and kept a positive attitude throughout the evening dispite his being drentched. He is a very nice guy who accommodated our every wish.

Jeffery provided us with a beautiful spiritual service. He was able to incorporate all of our ideas and make all of our children a part of the ceromony. Jeffrey was a last minute replacement and we were so blessed to have found him.
