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!

I had Jeffrey Gisriel as our officiant. From our first phone call was really all that was needed, he made us feel so much better and really is the kind of guy where you meet him once and automatically feel like you've known him your whole life! He was super nice and got everyone to laugh during the ceremony which really helped the vibe stay upbeat and positive! The wording was perfect! Short but straight to the point! I was super pleased with everything! Everyone loved him. THANK YOU! –Mr. & Mrs. O’Donnell

What can I NOT say about Rev. Giz? From the get go, he's been super approachable. He was very good at explaining what I needed to bring, what to expect and more. My husband and I didn't meet him until like 20 minutes before the ceremony (well..... my husband) and I didn't meet him until I reached the end of the aisle. We had a beach wedding on 9/13/15 and the ceremony was done so incredibly well. Dear husband told me that Rev. Giz gave him pointers on what to expect and reminded him to breathe as my dad walked me down the aisle. Completely professional, and worth it. During the time immediately following the ceremony and during the reception, my friends and family complimented me on the wonderful service our friend did for us. No one believed that we had not ever met him before. We had the option to have him at the rehearsal dinner, but opted not to do this, and believe me, Rev. Giz can make it seem like he's been your best friend for years even when he's not ever met you until the biggest day of your life! HIGHLY recommended.

Revered Gisriel officiated our beach ceremony on 8/15/15 and was an absolute treat. Jeffrey was incredibly accommodating, has an awesome sense of humor, and truly made our ceremony so special and heartfelt. We we're extremely happy that he was able to join us for our rehearsal as doing so made the big day go off without a hitch. He was more than willing to make any changes we asked of for our ceremony script and we were told there wasn't a dry eye in the house!! Rev Giz was an absolute pleasure to work with and we absolutely recommend him!

Rev. Giz married my husband and I last month and he was absolutely fantastic! It felt like he knew us our entire lives and really customized our ceremony. It was everything I ever dreamed of. I can't say enough good things, there is no one better!

Reverend Gisriel was fantastic! We picked him based off the great reviews online and they proved right! Jeffrey was so easy to work with and replied to my emails quickly. Without meeting prior to our wedding day, our beach ceremony went smoothly and flawlessly. Reverend Gisriel is professional, has a great sense of humor, and loves what he does. We would highly recommend him!!

'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!
