"I am so lucky to say that Rev. Gary officiated at my wedding! When my now husband and I first met with him we knew he was “the one”. His down to earth and easy going personality was just what we wanted. He took the time to get to know us and kept in contact with us throughout all of our planning. It made us feel like we actually knew him and made us so much more comfortable on our wedding day. Rev. Gary came to our rehearsal which put us at ease and helped us figure it all out. The day of the wedding couldn’t have gone better. The ceremony went perfectly and Rev. Gary did an AMAZING job! We had TONS of compliments on how good he was, how he made the ceremony so much about us, how genuine he sounds… He also stayed for some of the cocktail hour and gave the blessing before our meals came out. I gave him five stars because that’s all I could give!! I would recommend him to ANYONE!!"

Denise & Michael (Shelton CT)
"Dear Rev. Gary, Thank you so much for being the officiant at our wedding. We really appreciate how you took the time to meet and talk with us whenever we wanted, and all the materials you had prepared for us were extremely helpful. Before the ceremony and during the preparation process, your calm, prepared, caring way helped us to relax and plan the wedding ceremony that we really wanted to have, even if it didn’t fit the traditional mold. During the ceremony, you brought humor, life and kindness that at times made us laugh and other times brought tears to our eyes. You dealt with all the unexpected things that came up during the ceremony with grace and flair. Again, we couldn’t be more appreciative of the contribution you made to our special day. We already recommended you to another friend!" Thanks again, Maria and Dylan Read less

AMAZING!! We met with multiple officiants before meeting with Gary. Once we starting talking we knew Gary was exactly what we were looking for. He was a breath of fresh air and while he gave us many examples and suggestions, he also gave us full control of what we wanted our ceremony to be. Gary's professionalism and personality was the perfect fit for us. We were lucky to have him!!!!

My wife and I were a little nervous to try and find an officiant for our wedding, but we read amazing reviews of Rev. Gary and decided to give him a call. We met with him in person and immediately felt at ease. He really took the time to get to know us both as individuals and as a couple. We knew he would be a great fit when he asked us to describe what we each love about the other. He presented us with a packet with several options for making the ceremony the way we wanted.

Throughout the course of our wedding planning, Gary was easily reachable and responded to our many questions. He made us feel comfortable in planning the most important part of our wedding. On the day of, he conducted a beautiful, warm, and loving ceremony. So many of our guests came up to us to compliment how beautiful and heartfelt a ceremony we had. Many thought we had known Gary for years and my wife and I are so thankful to have chosen him to be a big part of our special day.

We had such a great experience with Reverend Gary! He took the time to create a ceremony tailored to us and our situation and it was better than we could have ever imagined. After the ceremony many guests were commenting on how wonderful and special the ceremony was. Upon speaking with him, we knew what to expect and he walked us through everything. Many thanks to Reverend Gary for getting to know us and taking the time to make it memorable. He’s a special man with a warm heart. We will think of him fondly and it truly feels as though we have a friend and counselor for life!

Gary was better than I ever could have imagined. He was kind, he listened, he learned about us as a couple. He took into consideration exactly how we wanted our ceremony to be executed and he carried it out to perfection. I had only known Gary for a little while but it felt like my friend was right there next to me in our most special moment.

Anyone would be lucky to have his services. He is responsive and non threatening. He truly takes his role seriously and I can't even begin to tell you hoe many compliments I got throughout the wedding regarding the ceremony he gave. The words he spoke really resonated with my wife and I.

Gary was so amazing! From the moment we met him for the first time to discuss the ceremony up until the big day, he was incredibly attentive, thorough, helpful, and accommodating of any and all questions that my wife and I had. And during the ceremony itself, he did such an exceptional job! He read everything with complete clarity and even put in a few personal words that really warmed our hearts as well as our guests. No matter what kind of ceremony or customs you wish to honor on your special day, you can bet with confidence that Gary can shape and customize your ceremony however you need to. I personally would recommend working with this man to anybody; a true pleasure! Thank You so much, Gary :)

We found Reverend Gary after searching online--we were a bit apprehensive about hiring someone we didn't know, but his reviews are (deservedly) stellar so we took a chance. He is extremely professional and put us at ease right from the beginning with his warmth and friendliness. He helped us through countless drafts of our ceremony text and had wonderful suggestions. Our ceremony was my favorite part of our wedding day, and having Reverend Gary there was one of our best vendor decisions! We would recommend him in a heartbeat!

Thank you Gary!

The ceremony was wonderful because of all of your support.

People have been raving about you and the beautiful ceremony.

We really loved how you encouraged us to make it our own - we have been quoting certain lines from the ceremony to each other on our honeymoon.
You made everything very clear, easy, and stress free.
The packet of sample ceremonies that you gave us when we first met was very helpful. It allowed us to customize our own ceremony but still keep things traditional.
We really enjoyed getting to know you and would encourage others to use you in the future.
Thank you Gary!

Gary is the best in the business. I feel so blessed to have had him as our Officiant. Before hiring Gary we looked at several people online with great reviews who perform ceremonies in CT but when we found Gary we knew he was the one for us. We met Gary who traveled a very long way to meet with us and felt totally assured.
After our first meeting with Gary, he worked with us tirelessly. He talked to us, emailed with us and above all was very patient with us when we still had no idea what we wanted. He also provided so much guidance and worked with us as our ceremony went through several drafts in order to make it exactly what we wanted.
On the day of the wedding Gary showed up early to check on both of us (bride and groom) and he brought with him a cloud of pure joy. Our ceremony was fantastic, classy, and full of celebratory laughter. It was exactly the ceremony we wanted and many guests even commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever been to and one that made them feel full of happiness and love. We are so happy that Gary was apart of our day and if you are looking for an Officiant, look no further, Gary is the one for you!

Reverend Gary immediately put my husband and me at ease from our first meeting, and we are thrilled we chose him to officiate our recent wedding. He helped us create a beautiful ceremony that we felt really reflected who we are as a couple, and gave some excellent advice on the length, flow, and timing. He had a wonderfully friendly presence, and helped us include my husband's sister in one of the blessings so that we could incorporate some of his culture and language despite the rest of our ceremony primarily taking place in English. It was an absolutely perfect start to our wedding day. Thank you!
