I have so many fantastic things to say about Rev G that I don't even know where to begin!!

It was very important to my fiance and I that the ceremony be meaningful and reflect the importance of the moment, but not be overly stuffy. We were new to the area and did not know anyone and were not part of any church. When we found Rev G, we knew after the first meeting that he was exactly who we wanted to marry us. He created a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. Even though we only met with him once and exchanged emails during the planning process, it felt as though he had known us our entire lives and that ours was the most important ceremony he had ever performed.

He kept everyone interested. So many people at our wedding had been to tons of weddings in the past, but they said that ours was their favorite due in large part to Rev G. He involved the congregation and made everyone feel as though they were a part of the ceremony, rather than just sitting through it. I also wanted something like a unity candle or a sand ceremony, but not those exact things. He suggested a hand-binding ceremony instead and everyone commented on it, had never seen it before, and loved it. Because of this, we now have a unique and special keepsake hanging in our home that marks the first moments of our marriage. Almost everyone in attendance commented on how great Rev G was and how he kept them engaged throughout the entire ceremony.

He would respond to emails almost instantaneously. Through the entire process, I felt like he was always there and 100% reliable.

He has such a wonderful, gentle manner. I wish we lived closer to Greensboro so we could attend his regular church service.

Rev G was a wonderful choice for our wedding! From the moment we met, we knew without a doubt that he would be the perfect officiant for us. From the beginning, he answered my emails promptly, and was patient with my many questions. We gave him an idea of the type of ceremony we wanted, and he drafted a script. Once we met with him to go over the ceremony, we fell in love with his presence, his way of speaking with us, and we felt immediately that he truly cared about giving us the perfect ceremony that we had dreamed of. We listened to the ceremony draft, fighting back tears because it was absolutely beautiful, and went home with a smile on our faces, knowing that our ceremony was going to be perfect.

On our wedding day, it was everything we expected and more. Everything WAS perfect. We have had numerous compliments from our guests, all saying how much they enjoyed the ceremony, and how friendly and open Rev G was to everyone, not just the wedding party.

I cannot recommend Rev G enough. If you are looking for someone who will give you the wedding ceremony you want and have always dreamed of, don't hesitate to give him a call.

Thank you, Rev. G, for everything, and for giving us a wedding that we will remember and cherish forever!

Rev G did a wonderful job as our wedding officiant. From our first meeting, I knew we had the right person for us. Not only is he a wonderful person, but he helps you to create the ceremony that will fit your needs. He was very receptive to my input for readings and he delivered a beautiful homily that was perfect for us. Rev G made all of guests feel like they were truly a part of the ceremony and everyone was engaged from beginning to end. He was very quick to respond to emails and flexible with meeting times. I'm so glad that he was a part of our wedding day. Our day from beginning to end was amazing, but my groom and I both feel that our ceremony was the most beautiful part.

Rev G did a wonderful job as our officiant, I could not have asked for more! He was so receptive to us from the moment I first contacted him. He welcomed us into his home for our first meeting, and already had a sample script prepared for us to look at. He was so open to our ideas and changes, however having that initial script was so helpful for us to plan the ceremony we both wanted. He also was very flexible with his services, and allows the couple to choose to have him for only the ceremony or for both the rehearsal and ceremony, and was willing to travel. I had so many guests tell me how engaging the ceremony was and how much they enjoyed themselves during what is often the "boring" part of a wedding day. I would highly recommend Rev G to any couples that are in the planning process!

From the get-go Rev. G makes you feel like you've known him for a long time. We haven't been to church in a while but wanted a semi-religious wedding ceremony. He customizes the ceremony to make it special to you and helps make the process very easy. I emailed him with a ton of questions during the planning process and quickly received helpful responses back. Our ceremony was so special and is the talk of our wedding - it couldn't have been so special without Rev. G's help. I have some friends getting married in the next year, and after seeing our ceremony are pretty sure they will hire him for their ceremony as well.

Rev. Donnelly was the best part of our wedding day plans. Contacted only two weeks prior to the wedding date he was able to fit us in and with limited time we only communicated by e-mail twice. He asked questions and I answered them along with giving him a bit of personal background. We did not want to write our own vows but somehow when he put together the ceremony you would think we had written it together. It was so personal and special to us. He was efficient, friendly, opened his home to us for our simple ceremony, and treated us as if we had personally know each other for years. We could not have made a better choice of an Officiant. "Rev. G" made our day special.

Rev G was the perfect reverend for us--he was very well spoken and easy to listen to. We are still receiving compliments on him and guests letting us know how much they loved the ceremony and how he spoke during it. He was extremely flexible, prompt, quick to reply to emails, and is very easy to work with. I would highly recommend him--I only wish he lived closer so we could attend his service.

Rev G was absolutely fabulous to work with for our wedding. He was extremely flexible as we did not live in the area where the wedding was located - we actually prepped the ceremony through Skype. He is extremely professional and fun in person. We had a small ceremony so did not do a rehearsal. He took charge and got everything going on time. The ceremony he created fit our taste/style and he was flexible with our requests. The coordinator at our event site is also a fan which I think is another seal of approval.

Rev G was amazing. He made our ceremony feel extremely personal, which was the most important thing to me. I was initially afraid a hired officiant would result in a cookie-cutter/standard wedding, but once I met Rev G I knew that would not be an issue. He took my suggestions and ran with them, and had plenty of his own input as well. He was able to run with everything, like when a bee got very close to my face, he made a small joke and everyone laughed and it was wonderful. I truly could not have imagined a more perfect ceremony; it was exactly how I had hoped it would be and without Rev G running the ceremony it wouldn't have been as amazing as it was. One of the first comments I heard from the guests was how much they enjoyed him. I highly recommend him to any bride. He is professional, responsive, and very personable.

Oh, what do I say about Rev G?!

We met him for our premarital counseling and set up 4 sessions with him. Before we left the 1st session, we knew we wanted to ask him to officiate our wedding.

This man made us laugh, and cry, and brought us closer together than we already were!

He helped us out at our rehearsal, and made our ceremony a total hoot! I don't think I stopped giggling the whole time! It was such a fun time, and he helped us decide on bringing in my Irish heritage with the hand fasting ceremony, it was fun and different!

I would recommend Rev G for any pre-during-marital counseling, and for anyone who wants a built for you, fun, exciting ceremony!

We interviewed several Officiants' and only one TRUE, PROFESSIONAL stuck out to us and that would be Rev. Gerald Donnelly. Very detailed, wanted to know US and who WE ARE. Always had everything together for us, on time and extremely responsive when we called, or emailed him. Meeting him was great as he relaxes you from the start with his humour but not over doing it. Very earthly minister to work with that was also helpful in giving us further ideas to what we thought we already had. He really gave ADDED VALUE to our wedding before and during that special day. We are extremely Grateful for Rev Donnelly! To see more of our wedding day and prior too visit our site at www.weddingwire.com/ncvineyard

Reverend Gerald, or Rev G as we affectionately call him, is without a doubt the best! I guarantee he will be the best vendor in your wedding, and one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Everyone loved him at the wedding! We had a small wedding and wanted our ceremony to be simple and intimate, yet somewhat traditional despite being from different faiths (I am Catholic, and my husband Methodist). We were deciding between an ex-dean of the Duke University Chapel, who of course came highly recommended, and officiants with no affiliation with a single institution figuring the latter might be more flexible. I had contacted an internet officiant, for lack of a better term, who is very popular in our area but found our correspondence to leave a bitter taste in my mouth so I kept searching until I found Rev G.

I was impressed with his responsiveness from the start: he gave me a call within an hour of receiving my inquiry email. My fiancé and I then knew he was the one the very first moment we met him, which was literally 15 minutes before the time we had agreed on! We were early, yet he got there before us. And we thought we were the most organized and punctual people on earth! We had a pleasant meeting and found Rev G to be kind, accommodating, flexible, and extremely organized. He has a great sense of humor too! We did not have to do much about the ceremony after that beside picking the readings from his suggestions and our own list. Our first meeting covered pretty much everything: what kind of ceremony we wanted, how long, what Rev G would wear (he checked if we were okay with what he had in mind!), how close to the guests/on which step to stand, and even how to pronounce our names. This is important – we had been to a wedding where the minister mispronounced the couple’s pretty straightforward name during the “I now introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. _______”!

It did not take us long to realize how impressively on top of things and extremely proactive Rev G is. He sent us the draft for our ceremony the night of our meeting. We did not want to write our own vows, for which I’m sure Rev G would have provided superb guidance, so the good reverend incorporated both our faiths into the ceremony beautifully. He also cued the musicians and wedding party flawlessly during the ceremony in addition to managing the guests. Even without rehearsing with Rev G, our ceremony was everything I had dreamed of: beautiful, personal, light, and happy. Rev G’s fatherly figure, leadership, easygoing personality, and smile truly set the tone for our wedding. We knew from the outset that our wedding was in great hands, and Reverend Gerald made it truly special.

Thank you, Rev G!

Reverend Gerald was exactly what my wife Nancy and I hoped for when searching for someone to officiate at our wedding! He is a warm and caring minister, who takes the time and effort to get to know you, understand your wedding desires, and guide you in customizing the service to meet your spiritual and personal preferences. Reverend Gerald obviously enjoys his calling, and we could not be any happier with the services that he provided to us! Give him a call...we think that you'll be happy that you did!

He made our wedding something that we will always remember for the rest of lives. His kindness and warmth showed in the ceremony. He was able to work in Catholic apects into the ceremony which was important to us. He was very thorough and prepared at any moment we needed him.

Reverend Gerald Donnelly officiated our wedding recently and we were more than pleased with his services. He made the process very easy from the beginning, helping to guide us through creating our personal ceremony which was extremely helpful. Even though my husband and I are different religions, Reverend Donnelly helped us to create a truly personal ceremony which blended aspects from both of our religions. Reverend Donnelly was very easy to communicate with and very responsive to all of my questions and e-mails. Our ceremony flowed wonderfully and I even had people comment afterwards that we had such a wonderful officiant. I would definitely recommend Reverend Gerald Donnelly to anyone!

Neither my husband or myself were members of a church so we were really worried that we were not going to be able to find someone to marry us. It was really important to me to be married by an actual minister so I was thrilled to find Gerald. He took the time to meet us in order to get to know us and also met with us to councel us on marriage so that we are better able to work together as a couple. He helped us make a ceremony that was not only religious but was also completely personal to us. He was available for advise any time we needed it. He officiated the rehearsal and ceremony effortlessly! We are grateful for the time and attention that he took in making our wedding special!

My husband, Joe, and I got married on May 17, 2008. We chose the Rev. Gerald Donnelly to officiate our ceremony. From the moment we met him, we knew he was the right one for us.

Our wedding ceremony was kind of complicated because my husband is Jewish and I am Christian. We wanted to have aspects of both faiths in our service. Gerald was very good at giving us suggestions (for scripture and things), and offering ideas. He was very down to earth, and got along with both of our families. He researched the Jewish faith (from what he did not already know), and became more familiar with Jewish weddings.

He made sure that all of the parents agreed with the service before we made it final. We did not want to offend anybody on either side. We had readings in Hebrew, and English. The whole ceremony did not last more than 30 minutes, and it was beautiful, thanks to Gerald. We broke the glass, and everybody yelled "Mazel Tov" at the end. Of course during the process of writing our service (Joe and I were very involved), we made changes, but Gerald always welcomed our changes and never got offended if we did not agree with something.

I would highly recommend the Rev. Gerald Donnelly as your officiant for your wedding! He was fantastic to work with, affordable, very professional, flexible, and very responsive whenever we needed anything. He was great!

We had a sudden change in plans and moved our wedding date up to accomodate family schedules. We contacted Rev. Donnelly mere days before the wedding date and he was more than accommodating. All details were arranged in a few short emails; his replies were rapid and concise. My husband described the process as "painless". I was particularly pleased with Rev. Donnelly's willingness to tailor the ceremony around our needs. We are not religious and was concerned about working with a minister... but we wanted an outdoor wedding which made using a magistrate a non-option. Rev. Donnelly performed a simple secular ceremony, as was our wish, but still made it sweet and meaningful. His easy and gracious personality made us all instantly comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone who doesn't have a minister and needs one... or if you have one of those old stodgy preachers and want to upgrade to someone a little more joyful.
