  • I wanted a simple wedding, total of 5 people. Didier gave us an experience that we will cherish for a lifetime. I had no idea my simple wedding could be so enormous! He brought an energy, and a spiritual encounter like no other.

  • If you are looking for a warm, genuine and knowledgeable officiant, you have found your man. Didier immediately made us feel at ease and cared for. He took the time to get to know us and listened to our story and thoughtfully included details in our ceremony that he helped us write. He shared great suggestions and recommendations to help us tailor our ceremony to perfection. He knows the area profoundly well and had so many options for beautiful scenery and backdrops for your day. He offered his time, expertise and friendship. He is a very special person. He delivered our ceremony and held that space with such a huge heart. It was magical. Didier will make your day very unique and special.

  • A Valued Wedding Officiant and So Much More ! We are so lucky to have had Didier as our Wedding Officiant. We met Didier in person weeks before the wedding and knew he would be a perfect fit for our wedding service. At that first meeting Didier took the time to get to know us. With his help and expertise we were able to tailor our wedding to our needs. It was an intimate, personalized and amazing wedding experience. Didier is well connected in the San Juan area with all the things that are needed for a great wedding experience. He is responsive, honest, genuine, sincere and knows how to put together a truly memorable wedding service. Thanks to our wedding experience with Didier we consider him to be a good friend as well as a great Wedding Officiant ! Mike and Lisa Knutson

    Lisa and Mike, thank you for your kind words. I will never forget being up in the lighthouse with you with the sounds of the guitar, overlooking the water, knowing how far you have come to get to this point in your lives. It was truly a magical day, and I am so honored to have had the opportunity to be your wedding officiant. I am truly grateful. Best to you both!

  • What a week my fiancé and I had, we found out that due to the circumstances of the world right now (March 2020), we had to cancel our wedding in Costa Rica only 3 days out! We decided that we would elope and have an intimate ceremony on Orcas Island, our favorite spot in Washington, if we could. We contacted Didier 3 days before we wanted to get married on Orcas to find out if he was available and would be able to accommodate a small/short ceremony in such a short time. From the onset, he heard our story, and worked with his schedule to ensure he was available and really understood our story so that he could create a special ceremony for us. He even met us in person (while remaining 6ft apart :) ) on orcas the day before the wedding for an hour to talk with us about our love for eachother, and what we wanted out of the ceremony. The ceremony was perfect, and Didier managed to create something that was tailored to us after only knowing us for less than a few hours. We absolutely recomm... Read more

  • This man went out of his way, above and beyond anybody we know. He rose to the occasion, overcoming obstacles to help us with our wedding. We had last minute wedding plans from Los Angeles. We had no idea who to call and we found him via the web. We called him up and he answered the phone late in the evening. He was gracious and listened to our plans. We had to rush our marriage license to San Juan and he told us not to worry. That he would have someone pick up our license and get it to us to Orcas Island. The day it self was surreal and amazing. The ceremony was gracious and attended to all our needs and requests. He was polite, courteous and understanding and gave us complete unconditional love. We cannot recommend him enough. We had a very small wedding with about 12 people. We had compliments afterwards, saying that if they were to marry they would do it exactly the same way. We loved his interpretation of our wedding vows. He honored all aspects of our special day. We could not... Read more

    I appreciate your kind words. They mean a lot to me. I will treasure the memory of this very special wedding just after Christmas at Roche Harbor. It was a pleasure to meet and connect with your friends and family. You are both special and kind-hearted people. I loved the family sand ceremony! I am so happy for you and your family! Didier

    When I think of your beautiful wedding in the little chapel at Roche Harbor, I remember your glowing smile throughout the ceremony. Tanner is truly a gentle man, a kind soul. Your son will be so lucky to have parents such as the two of you! Yes, your wedding ceremony was a work of art on many levels. I am so thankful to have been a part of such a an amazing day!

  • What an absolute joy it was to work with Didier. He went above and beyond to work with my wife and I to develop a ceremony we loved. He was thoughtful and insightful, helping my wife and I to draw out what we truly wanted the ceremony to represent and helped us focus what we had in mind through his extensive experience. We heard dozens of compliments from our guests as to how beautiful the ceremony was. He created an atmosphere of reverence and beauty, with just the perfect blend of humor. Didier contributed greatly to making our wedding something special that we will remember fondly forever. We immensely enjoyed working with him and cannot recommend him enough.

  • If you are planning to get married on Orcas island, Didier is your man! Throughout our planning process he was so positive and supportive, and really allowed us to feel calm and not stressed out on our big day. We highly recommend Didier if you are looking for a day-of coordinator :)

    Thank you, Carla. It was a great success! I'm so happy for the two of you! It was truly an honor to help "orcastrate" your wedding day! Didier

  • Didier officiated our wedding at Roche Harbor on June 8th, 2019. He is a very kind, genuine and easy going person and was the perfect officiant for our wedding. We had him come to our rehearsal the day before the wedding and even though I offered to put him in a hotel because the ferries were no longer running to Orcas for the day he hitched a ride with someone back to save me the money on a room. He was right back at Roche the next day with the same smile on his face, he truly enjoys what he does. From beginning to end he always put our wishes first, in fact we probably sent ceremony speech revisions back and forth about 10 times and it never phased him at all, he was happy to do it. Throughout the whole process he was probably the most responsive vendor we had, never going more than a few hours at most to respond to emails and phone calls. From the moment we spoke to him on the phone we knew he was our guy. Now that the wedding is over we consider him to be more of a friend th... Read more

  • Having Didier Gincig officiate our wedding was a great decision! He came recommended by our venue (The Friday Harbor House on San Juan Island) and they were right. Didier does an excellent job! He was responsive and took the time to get to know us. He walked us through every detail of our ceremony in advance. The day of he arrived early so we could connect, and in the end it felt like a cherished friend was officiating, not someone we met only months prior. We both loved his wisdom and insights about marriage, and the personal touches he added to the ceremony about our love story and lives. We could not have been happier! And, I should also add, he recommended our photographer who we also really enjoyed working with. Our day really came together, and was everything we had hoped for. We are thankful to Didier for his help in making our day special!

  • Didier did such a great job officiating our wedding ceremony. He also had such great insights at every step along the way, which greatly reduced our stress and contributed to an amazing experience. Although our plans changed at the last minute due to a family emergency, Didier managed to still create a memorable experience for our rescheduled and pared-down wedding. It was much smaller and more casual than we had hoped for due to the circumstances, but Didier still made it unforgettable. Thanks, Didier! - Diana and Craig

    Craig and Diana, What a pleasure it was to go down to Seattle and be part of your beautiful wedding by the water! How's the baby? He's probably not a baby but a toddler by now? How is resettling to the East Coast? Thank you for the honor of getting to be your wedding officiant. Best to you both! Didier
