Serving S. Central PA, MD and DC

Non-deonominational ceremonies by a compassionate non-judgmental professional for ALL couples in love!!



What do YOU want?

The ceremony is the heart and soul of the day and will set the tone of your marriage. Why should your ceremony be dictated to you any more than your dress or the food at your reception? Rev. Judith offers you a simple and fun way to customize EVERY element of your ceremony from the opening greeting to the final pronouncement. She is truly the Officiant for the discerning couple who VALUE their ceremony. After all, don't you DESERVE more than a generic ceremony?

When you work with Rev. Judith, YOU create a completely unique ceremony which bridges the old traditions with the modern contemporary in what she calls “re-traditionalizing.” When you have ownership, YOU are in control.



What could be more fun than actually "Tying the Knot" on your wedding day? Many of Rev. Judith's couples want a ceremony that is unique and different, so they select a Handfasting. (See the Handfasting Tab on Website)

Remember, cheaper isn't always better. A good price on a bad professional is NO DEAL!

Available for destinations as well!

Rev. Judith was a dream come true for our wedding. Eric and myself both got so much out of our pre-marriage counseling sessions. We had such a great time that we weren't quite sure what to do with ourselves once they were completed. Judith created the ideal ceremony for us. We needed laughter [to avoid being sobbing messes] and she kept the ceremony perfectly light but serious for us. I can't imagine saying 'I do' without her guidance and direction.

Thank you!!!!!

Justyne & Eric,
Thank you, and I agree. My Monday evenings were so empty once we finished our sessions. We were so happy to be a part of your wedding weekend, and felt blessed to be so welcomed by your families. Your day was picture perfect. I guess the only thing better would have been if you could have actually run the marathon the morning of, right?
Blessings,

Rev. Judith provided us with information to help us with our spontaneous wedding plans.
Our dream vacation turned into our dream wedding in Gettysburg. She guided us from the
courthouse for the license and every step of the way answering any questions and giving
us valuable information about how it was done "back then" .
Our plan was to have tin type photos done and that escalated into "why not get married while
in Civil War era clothing" That's where Rev. Judith came in. In communication with the photo studio and Rev. Judith we were able to have our wedding right there, complete with tin types. It was a wonderful experience and we will always be grateful for the ceremony of our lives.
Thank you, Rev. Judith, for all you did for us and all the history you brought into our ceremony.
We love you and God Bless you for who you are.

This woman is a Saint or she should be..lol. She has a lot of great bridal packages and will work with you to customize it to fit you, your budget, and your groom. My wedding was 10/5/2014 in the mountains, and she did such a great job blending my christian aspects, and my husbands non religious aspects to the ceremony. Everything was taken care of. She even helped me help my mother with last minute details and keeping her and my husband sane. She is truly a great person with a beautiful spirit. We are so glad she was the person to marry us.

She is worth 100 times what she is asking for..

Judith is an amazing officiant from start to finish. She helped us to make our ceremony absolutely exactly what we wanted it to be. We were able to personalize everything from our readings to including my daughter in our ceremony. She also took the time to get to know us so that the ceremony was even more personal.

It's been almost 2 weeks since our wedding and we are still getting compliments on our ceremony and how wonderful and different it was. Not your typical ceremony due to the personalization.

If you want the perfect ceremony, the ability to personalize it, and professionalism, pick Judith for your officiant.

What can I say? It was such an honor to take part in your day. It is always more challenging for me to write ceremonies and not become emotional (sorry) when the ceremony is for friends. Thank you for allowing me to be the one with you on your wedding day, and thank you for sharing your experiences with others.

We wanted to elope in PA. Searched & found Rev Judith G. It was very easy to call , text or email her as she responded to our request within hours. She was eager to help us with our special day There are plans/packages to pick from in case you want a small gathering. The site was lovely and it afforded us with a wedding come rain or shine as we met at a beautiful covered bridge in/near Gettysburg. She told us everything up front. There were NO hidden costs! Paperwork & cost was extremely reasonable. Rev Judith is a charming person who makes you feel right at home... calming wedding jitters. The choice of vows were exceptional and met our needs exactly. I thought of writing our own until I read hers. Lovely, heartfelt words couldn't have been hand picked any better! Since my husband & I are over 50, we didn't want a lot of frills. This was the perfect plan for us...short & sweet and we loved staying in Gettysburg for the weekend!
Thank you Wedding Wire for providing reviews! That also helped in our search.
THANK YOU, REV JUDITH for all of you kindness!

The site was lovely and it afforded us with a wedding come rain or shine as we met at a beautiful covered bridge in/near Gettysburg. She told us everything up front. There were NO hidden costs! Paperwork & cost was extremely reasonable. Rev Judith is a charming person who makes you feel right at home... calming wedding jitters. The choice of vows were exceptional and met our needs exactly. I thought of writing our own until I read hers. Lovely, heartfelt words couldn't have been hand picked any better! Since my husband & I are over 50, we didn't want a lot of frills. This was the perfect plan for us...short & sweet and we loved staying in Gettysburg for the weekend!
