My name is Jeff Maszal and I have officiated wedding ceremonies for couples of almost every faith, race, and culture.

Each wedding is customized to meet your needs. I take pride in listening to you and working with you to create a ceremony that reflects who you are, what you want, and what your faith, family, and culture may request or require.

An Ordained Minister, in good standing (and a former management consultant), I officiate traditional, contemporary, religious (Christian, etc), non-denominational, spiritual, interfaith, cross-cultural, and secular/non-religious ceremonies.

Religious and interfaith ceremonies that I have officiated/co-officiated include those from the Jewish, Buddhist, Islamic, Hindu, Bahá'í, Confucianism, and Taoist faiths. I have incorporated cultural traditions from most part of the world.

I’m licensed to officiate in Virginia, Washington D.C., and Virginia.

Jeff was fantastic. He was very professional and prompt. My fiancé and I contacted him late the day before we wanted to get married at the courthouse. Within an hour we had talked with him and after discussing the situation he agreed to meet us the next morning to sign our marriage license. When Jeff met us at the courthouse he took time to discuss the paperwork process and walked us back in to get our certified license.

Although we didn’t have an actual ceremony from Jeff, I highly recommend his services. He has a true knack for this profession and takes times to get to know each of his couples; albeit for a short time.

We can't say enough about Jeff. We knew within ten minutes of meeting him that he was the best fit for us. He was very professional and did a great job of making us feel comfortable both before and during the ceremony. And, over a week later, our guest are still talking about how great he was and how much they enjoyed his personality! We would definitely recommend him!

We used Jeff for premarital counseling before our wedding and such a great experience. He's a very warm, funny guy and instantly made us feel at ease. We met once a week or so to work through different topics, from Meyers Briggs personality tests and how those affected our interactions to financials and household chores. We got so much out of talking through things with him and I think the premarital counseling ended up being one of the best things we did in the whole wedding/marriage process. Jeff is great and couldn't recommend him more highly!

My husband and I are so thankful we found Jeff to officiate our wedding. Neither of us were sure where to start when it came to putting together a ceremony and writing our vows, and Jeff provided guidance and gave great suggestions. He even gave us various templates and examples so that we were able to craft the ceremony of our dreams. Jeff was professional, responsive, helpful and gave honest advice throughout the entire process. Thank you Jeff for being part of our day!

From the very beginning, Jeff made our wedding planning experience so easy. He was very flexible on times with meeting us and showed genuine concern in making our wedding day super special. When we met him the first time, he made us feel so comfortable and we instantly knew he would be part of our special day. He went above and beyond with the time he took with us and went through everything, even suggesting things like bug spray, weights for my veil (outdoor wedding) and traffic patterns for the holiday weekend. Jeff really thought of everything. He gave us so many tips and worked with me on the ceremony several times until it was perfect. He had the perfect combination of jokes and seriousness and left our guests saying it was the best ceremony they had ever been to! My husband and I are so thankful to have found Jeff!!

Jeff was one of the best choices we made when planning our wedding. He was great to work with and conducted a touching, personal, and light hearted ceremony. On top of a great ceremony, given Jeff's training and certifications he was able to provide us premarital counseling which was a very important part of our wedding preparations based on recommendations of married friends and family. Jeff met us for the first time months before our ceremony and took the time to ensure he completely understood our preferences and on the day of the ceremony he handled it with the gloves of an experienced and expert officiant. His humor and attention to detail calmed the nerves of an anxious bride and two junior brides maids. Given our small intimate event, ceremony with some elements of religion but also true to our individual style, and our desire to include our dog, Jeff was an amazing choice throughout the entire planning process and ceremony. Many of our guests remarked about how perfect the ceremony was for us, and we couldn't agree more.

Jeff was the officiant for our Thursday evening wedding. I met with him shortly after contacting him and he had a lot of useful advice about details at our particular wedding venue. He also sent me about 10 different ceremonies to help me figure out what we wanted for our script. On the day of the wedding I got very nervous and he was super helpful! He double and triple checked that we had what we needed to start the ceremony and made jokes to lighten the mood before I went out to the ceremony. I was running late to the ceremony because of hair and makeup. Our wedding was on a cold 55 degree Thursday afternoon in May (!), and guests were from different parts of the world, with some who spoke English, German or Italian as their first or only language. My husband says that Jeff made remarks and jokes in all three languages and really kept a positive atmosphere while everyone waited for the ceremony to begin. He had a clear, heartfelt and genuine tone when he proceeded with our ceremony, and once I made a joke or two in my personal vows, he followed suit with a joke or two in the remainder of the ceremony. He was an absolute pleasure to have at our wedding!!!! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU BOOK JEFF!

Along with our caterer, Jeff was my favorite vendor. He's well-spoken, confident, spiritual, and open-minded. We picked him because we could have a conversation with him, he was positive, he wasn't judgmental (as some of the other officiants we met with were of organized religion), and he was flexible (he let us customize our ceremony however we liked). The day of, our guests commented on how comfortable and funny he was.

Jeff was also our premarital counselor, and I think we made real progress in the areas where we needed work. Beyond conducting in-person sessions, he was available by email and phone, and he offered advice that was realistic for us, not generic. He was also always respectful of our different perspectives and met us at our level (wherever we were in a particular week). Really grateful he was a part of our wedding process!

Jeff was very informative and took time to get to know our ceremony needs. He provided us with several templates of different versions of ceremonies and we picked the parts we liked. He made sure the content we put together was cohesive and made recommendations for various prayers. We were in charge but still had his supervision. We received many compliments from our friends and family about how beautiful the ceremony was. On the day of the wedding, he took charge and everything went along without a hitch. We would recommend Jeff without any reservations!!
