"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

We could not have been happier that we chose Rev. Gary to officiate our Oct. 2016 wedding ceremony at Tappan Hill Mansion. From our initial meeting with Gary, he took the time to get to know us individually and as a couple, and was able to fully discern the kind of ceremony we envisioned. Gary was clearly very experienced in working with couples to tailor the ceremony to personal tastes.

As our wedding approached Gary checked in regularly and offered helpful suggestions when we were unsure on the flow and substance of the ceremony. Our ceremony could not have gone better, Gary spoke such heartfelt words in the ceremony that our friends and family thought we had known him for years. We would highly recommend Rev. Gary.

Rev. Gary worked with us to create a personal and meaningful ceremony. He took the time to meet with us and ask important questions about our relationship and marriage goals. His genuine interest in the importance of our relationship and the time he spent with us allowed for him to have a personal connection to our ceremony and connection with us as a couple. He made himself available to us along the planning process and had great insight and suggestions when finalizing the ceremony and writing our own vows.
On the day of, he spoke with true love in his heart and his words were touching, soothing and meaningful. He added such personal touches that meant a lot to us and he sprinkled humor into the ceremony which made us both smile and enjoy every moment.
My husband and I look forward to having him in our lives as a Reverend and as a friend as our marriage grows.

From our initial meeting with Rev Gary, we knew he was the one to marry us in just a few minutes of speaking with him. He had so many wonderful suggestions, keeping in mind that we wanted to stay on the Traditional side with our ceremony. Rev. Gary in his own special way asked us questions to get to know more about us and when he did that, my husband and I actually learned more about each other! He was so interested in how we met and what our hopes for the future were for each other. He is so very kind, helpful and has such an amazingly soothing demeanor that won us over immediately. When it came time for us to write our vows to each other, my husband and I didn't know where to start. Rev. Gary advised us to "write from the heart" and also provided us with a helpful template, allowing us to build upon that. When our vows were completed, we sent them to Rev. Gary to review and he provided us with such positive and feedback! Rev. Gary was so incredibly experienced in assisting us with the planning and the details of the ceremony. He was always available to guide us, night or day. The end result was nothing short of perfect and spectacular. So many of our family, friends and guests had given us tremendous compliments about Rev. Gary and the way he officiated our ceremony. The waterfront banquet hall where we had our ceremony was very impressed with him and look forward to having him back officiating future ceremonies. He has followed every detail even post-wedding such as assisting us with the filing and receipt of our marriage license. In closing, if we could suggest to any bride or groom looking for a wonderful officiant that will make your day that much more beautiful, your search starts and stops with Rev. Gary. God Bless Him!! All our love, admiration and appreciation, Cynthia & Scott L.

Gary brought beauty and professionalism to our ceremony to make it a memorable event. Forget the basics like easy to connect with and quick to respond to inquiries, Gary is so determined to make your ceremony perfect that he goes beyond these beginning steps and helps you craft your day just the way you want it. His experience means he has answers to all the weird questions you have, and his wisdom (on both wedding etiquette and love) is a relief when you're actively planning for the big day. We highly recommend meeting Gary and learning more about the ceremony you can create together; I know we are glad we did.

Rev. Gary Deinstadt made our ceremony refreshing and had our guests both laughing and crying. Before the wedding he took the extra step to offer ideas to involve family members and ways to make the experience entirely personal. Once the ceremony was finalized he provided structured materials that were easy to follow during the rehearsal. This included reading samples and poem recommendations. Rev. Gary was a breath of fresh air and made us feel comfortable during every step of the process. We received several requests from our guests for his contact to book for their daughter, friends and own weddings! I recommend him to all brides, especially those going for a traditional catholic ceremony but with a personalized touch.

Gary is great! My fiancé and I are so excited to have him officiate our special day. He is professional but still personable and has made the ceremony planning process a breeze. He took some time to get to know us and walk us through what the ceremony will be like. We have a say in the ceremony's substance and entire sequence which helps make it feel entirely personalized and special :)

We are so thrilled to write this recommendation for Reverend Gary! From the moment we met Gary, he made us feel comfortable and at ease with the process. We were very happy with his communication and organization leading up to the wedding day. On the day of our wedding, his calm and confident presence was greatly appreciated in the moments before the ceremony. We will always treasure the memories of our ceremony, and this is largely due to Gary's heartfelt words and professionalism. Many of our guests and family members have commented in the days since our wedding how impressed they were with Reverend Gary and our entire ceremony. We are so thankful we found him!

It was an honor it was to have Gary officiate our wedding. From day one he made us feel comfortable, and really brought what the wedding was all about to the forefront of our minds. He was able to help us so much in creating and visualizing our own personal ceremony, and having his guidance throughout the process was something we'll be forever grateful for.
