Your wedding ceremony and vows reflect the uniqueness of your relationship. It captures the celebration of your love which has brought the two of you to this special moment in your lives. It is my desire to work with you to create a memorable wedding ceremony. I strive to incorporate the significant points in your lives as well as your love, beliefs, and values. I will help you translate your innermost thoughts and deepest feelings into words that will express to your partner and to all who witness the ceremony exactly what your heart feels.

I am an ordained and licensed non-denominational minister serving Georgia and the surrounding states. I am legally recognized to officiate at all types of clergy functions. I am a professional officiant who is trusted by all backgrounds to perform their ceremony with dignity, whether it is traditional or non-traditional.

I have an uplifting personality that everyone appreciates on such an important day. I create your ceremony with you so that it is a personal expression of your love and spiritual beliefs. All faiths are welcome, and each ceremony will be customized to your desires. You may choose from and customize one of many prewritten ceremonies, write your own, or I will write one just for you. I can also provide ceremony music if you desire. Since this is your wedding, it should include all the aspects of the ceremony that are meaningful to you. Read less

Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
I am happy when couples wish to work to change their ceremony. It means they have a deep understanding of each other.

Of course, I even have samples of some individually written vows for couples to use as a basic for their own personal vows.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I believe couples should be able to choose their own readings - those that have meaning to them personally. I have suggestions for my couples but am always open to include readings which have special meaning to my bridal couples.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, but if the couple chooses - I can suggest someone for them to see.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Of course. I beleive part of my job is to make everyone feel the wedding ceremony will be perfect. Rehearsals help to reassure the participants this will happen.

Reverend Gayle York has been a real gift in our life. We were looking for a non-denominational wedding officiant, and although she performs Christian weddings, was flexible as we navigated thru the wedding planning process and she made it very easy for us to craft our own ceremony - she sent us a few different documents with ceremony outlines for us to pick and choose from.
I was able to add just the things I wanted, adjust the wording to better suit our needs and to let her be the expert on the best way to take certain steps.
Our large family guest ceremony was made absolutely perfect by her attention to what we wanted - including her taking the lead when I said, "Okay, let's do this" to start the ceremony.
Her voice carries well without being overbearing and her experience with over 1000 wedding ceremonies (maybe even more than 1500 now!) really comes thru with the way she words each section of the ceremony.
This woman is the real deal - I highly recommend working with her if you want your wedding to be special, spiritual and just what you might not have realized you wanted.

We are so happy we chose Reverend York to officiate our wedding. Not only did she allow us to tailor our ceremony to fit our personalities, she truly cared about making our day special.

We would highly recommend Reverend York's services if you are looking for a great experience.

Reverend York was just what we needed for our wedding. I didnt schedule an officient until a month before my date. She was able to schedule a time to personally meet with my fiance and I before the event. She explained all of the options and detail and assured us that we would be able to customize as needed and even schedule a rehearsal.

Our wedding was outside and non-religious. We were able to customize every word of the ceremony to make it especially personal. Rev York was prompt, attentive, and even did a quick 'run-through' for the nervous groom. It was exactly what we needed.

Special thanks from Mr. and Mrs. Drayton Sebastian

August 11, 2012 was a special and memorable day for us, the day when we took our vows to be permanently bonded together in marriage, in the presence of our family members and dear friends. From the outset, and, during the logistics phase for our wedding ceremony, Reverend Gale exhibited the highest caliber of professionalism and respect, and was extremely courteous, highly responsive and accommodating. She made herself readily available to us in an attempt to address any questions or concerns we had in a timely manner. On the day of the event, she performed a remarkable ceremony, filled with the spiritual component that we desired. Without Reverend Gale, our ceremony would not have been as meaningful as it was. In light of the aforementioned, without qualms or hesitation, we highly recommend Reverend Gale as a wedding officiant who will be instrumental in providing any couple with the memorable wedding ceremony desired.

Reverend Gale, thanks for your kindness, guidance and support during this memorable event in our lives. We wish you the very best.

Cheers,
Drayton & Ingrid

We enjoyed working with Reverend Gale York, because she was very flexible about her schedule and we loved her energy towards making our wedding perfect. She gave us many ideas for different types of Ceremonies and Rituals which helped us decide which one was the best for us. I also respected the fact that she responded to emails in a quick manner. It made my life easier as a bride, not to always be on the phone. Reverend Gale York, was worth every penny. She was there when I needed her and she helped coordinate the wedding with my Platinum Package. During our Rehearshal , she made sure we all knew our parts and that we were satisified with the results. I felt very comfrotable being around her and she made me in the end a very happy bride. To any bride out there, I would recommend Reverend Gale York to be your officant. The quailty of service was amazing :)

Reverend York is a fantastic marriage officiant, and I recommend her to all. My wife and I come from different cultural backgrounds. When we searched for an officiant, we looked from someone that was willing to customize a ceremony that fit our diverse roots. We knew from the get go that Reverend York was the right match. She worked closely with us to create a customized ceremony. On the big day, she perfectly conducted the ceremony we put together. Her presence and command of the room was stellar. I highly recommend Reverend York to all people looking to create a perfect wedding!

We wanted a short, simple traditional ceremony, and Rev. York provided it for us at a very reasonable rate. Rev. York met with us, and within about 2 minutes we knew we wanted her doing the ceremony. Her friendliness, upbeat and cheerful personality, and attention to detail, made the decision easy.
On our wedding day, Rev York met with each of us, and ran through what we needed to do. Since it was a very low budget affair, we had no done a rehearsal..and Rev York was so very helpful before the event and day of, making sure we had everything right. We both feel she went well above and beyond what her fee is.

She is the most accommodating, organized, well-spoken officiant I have ever seen and I have been in 7 weddings in the last 4 years. She had amazing suggestions and examples. Coming from a technology background I found it very cool that I first met Gale through Skype and I knew she was the right person for our wedding right away.

Gale we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your hard work and for doing an amazing job on one of the most memorable days of our lives.

Rev. Gale York was perfect for our wedding. She let us choose from many options to create our own ceremony with our own beliefs. Unfortunately we were not able to have a rehearsal together because of another booking, but she made sure she was there extra early on our wedding day to make sure everything was right. The other thing that stuck out to me was that she wanted to meet us in person and talk to us. It was nice to have someone care like she did.

Also, from a groom perspective, she definately helped me feel calm as we waited 10 minutes before everything happened.

Very happy with the service we received and would totally recommend Gale to all of my friends. Read less

Reverend York was everything we were looking for in an officiant. She let us create our own personal ceremony and helped with any questions along the way. Everything went so perfectly on our wedding day and we owe so much thanks to Rev York!

When my fiance and I got engaged, we realized neither of us had a "home church" in the Atlanta area. Neither of our parents or close relatives live here, either, so we were stumped on choosing an officiant. When we met Gale, I felt like I'd known her for years. She was warm, funny, maternal (a comfort to a bride away from her family), but also very professional. She spoke with us in detail about the ceremony choices she offered, and was willing to tweak the details to be sure that we got a ceremony meaningful to us. On our wedding day, guests complimented us several times on the sincerity and beauty of our ceremony. I was, admittedly, an emotional bride who boo-hooed her way through the entire thing! Gale was there with a calm, reassuring voice, gently reminding me to take a breath, and handing me tissues when necessary! This is the sort of service you (hopefully) only need once, but I will highly recommend her to other couples!

Rev. Gale was not only helpful and accommodating, she was so friendly and down-to-Earth. We only saw her three times: meeting with her for the very first time, the rehearsal, and then the actual wedding, and all three times, it felt like we'd known her for years.

She is witty and kind - she looks you in the eyes when she is talking to you, and has a wonderful sense of humor. When I was nervous, she made sure to talk to me and calm me down, both before AND during the ceremony! She is so sweet and was such a pleasure to work with. She was extremely responsive in both emails and phone calls. We will miss her and hope everyone books her for their wedding!

Rev. Gale was wonderful! She was so accomodating and had lot's of wonderful suggestions for personalizing our ceremony. We met with her several times via phone and she couldn't have been nicer. We planned our wedding in a very small amount of time and didn't make our final wishes for the ceremony known until a few days before the wedding. Rev. Gale was so kind about the last minute changes and didn't miss a beat during the ceremony. We would highly recommend Rev. Gale!!

Reverend York arrived early and went over what would happen during wedding. She even wentout of her way to make sure there was a phone on connected to my mother who could not make it but could hear it over the phone. She suggested that she take group pictures with my camera after so that everyone who was there could be in it. All in all I would say she was worth having there.

Reverend Gale M. York was the perfect person to officiate our wedding on 09/18/10 at Lake Lanier Islands Resort. We could not have been happier with her services! We booked Rev. York during our first meeting with her, we knew within the first five minutes she was the person we wanted to marry us. She worked with us closely and offered us guidance to choose the perfect ceremony that worked for us. She also introduced us to the "wine ceremony" which we did (in lieu of a candle lighting or sand ceremony) and were really happy with how it turned out. A lot of guests commented on how unique and wonderful it was! I highly recommend Rev. Gale York for your wedding officiate!!

We couldn't have asked anyone better to officiate our wedding. Rev Gale even coordinated our wedding at the last hour! Everyone was still running around and getting ready. We didn't have time to rehearse and discuss the walks with any of the wedding party. Rev Gale went after everyone and to let them know how the wedding is going to work out and where to walk and with whom. She was very professional, calm, and collected despite issues that we had. It was coordinated beautifully. I didn't know what was going on until I walked down the aisle. Rev Gale had already worked it out with everyone. She kept us calm and was very helpful. I don't know how our wedding would have turned out without Rev Gale! Thank you again!

She has some wonderful ceremony samples, readings, etc. to choose from, and is happy to help couples put together a ceremony that is just right for them.

Rev. York was great! Since I was planning my wedding from 1400 miles away, she made sure we "met" on Skype and that she was the right match for my ceremony. Her packages are diverse and we found one that met our desires and were able to customize it to be our own. She kept the ceremony simple, just as I requested, but still made it personal and beautiful. She truly is a great person.

The day of was where she really went beyond the call of duty, helping get people prepared, calm, remembering some of the small things we forgot, and providing helpful suggestions. She was really on top of things and it let us breathe a lot easier and enjoy our ceremony, which she officiated professionally and with composure.

Rev. York was fantastic! She has a very agreeable attitude and a calming presence, which really helps at such a stressful time. She worked with a good friend of mine to coordinate our rehearsal and ceremony, as we did not hire a professional coordinator - they did a great job! She stayed calm, cool, and collected throughout the ceremony, even when the DJ accidentally started blaring rap music during our vows, and in turn helped us to stay calm! She was also very flexible with our ceremony wording requests. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant in the Atlanta area.

Reverend Gale York was a pleasure to work with. I met with another Reverend as well and after meeting with Rev. York we picked her that very moment. I felt a connection with her and she seemed very light and warm, not stuffy how some Reverends/Pastors can come across. She always emailed me back and answered any questions I had. She showed up on time, looked great and made us feel very comfortable. Everything went smoothly and beautiful, even without a rehearsal (we didn't have one because our ceremony was small & intimate, no wedding party). I don't think any couple wanting to get married can go wrong when chosing her.

Reverend Gale M. York responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the review - I am sorry you were disappointed in my response time and the value of the ceremony. I try to respond as quickly as possible but working with the churches and children in the North GA Mountains does handicap me with cell service.

I feel my prices are rather good for all that I offer, but I apologize if you thought otherwise.

Rev. Gale was a fantastic addition to our wedding day ceremony and celebration. From our first meeting and introducing her to us as a couple, we were able to design the sound of our ceremony from the foundation provided to us by Rev. Gale. This made our ceremony unique to us and very meaningful - her interpretation and navigation of the various spiritual paths and beliefs allowed us to include those that are the most meaningful to us, as well as to ensure that all of our guests felt included in the ceremony.
