  • Gerry was such a dream to work with. Kind, helpful and an incredibly positive demeanor, he put my husband and I at ease through the whole process. He was accommodating to us being out of town and really made our ceremony special. I would absolutely recommend Gerry to anyone getting married in the Greater New Orleans area. Thank you, Gerry for all you did for us!

  • Rev. Jerry made our small and intimate ceremony quite nice and low stress. He met us at the site on time and with little pre-planning information. Jerry also made suggestions and led the ceremony vows, which made our day even easier and more stress free. Thanks Dr. Schum!!

    Thanks so much for your kind words! Hope the license process worked out. Since I hadn't heard back from you I figured everything was OK. Peace, Jerry

  • If you're looking for an officiant, look no further. Rev. Dr. Schumm was absolutely wonderful! We had a destination wedding in New Orleans and he made us feel so comfortable preparing for the ceremony. He answered all our questions and was very patient. He has a great sense of humor and is very easy to talk to. He made us feel at ease on our wedding day. Our ceremony was perfect because of him. Thank you so much Dr. Schumm!!!

  • We were really clueless about all aspects of what was involved in a wedding ceremony and how it progressed. Reverend Schumm was so helpful. He met with us several times and walked us through the process. He helped us personalize our ceremony while also maintaining a traditional format. He helped us explore all options that we could include in our ceremony and answered our questions. During the ceremony, he kept us at ease with his calm presence and guided us through every step of the ceremony. He is a very open person, very easy to talk to, and makes everyone feel welcome. He also has a great sense of humor and a love of life. He was ideal as our wedding officiant.

  • Dr. Schumm was so wonderful to work with! He's so personable and he makes planning a ceremony fun and easy. He offers great suggestions and advice and we absolutely loved working with him. We had a lot of questions and he took the time to answer all of them with great detail. Dr. Schumm calmed our nerves during the rehearsal so that we were prepared for the ceremony itself. Our ceremony was so beautiful and we couldn't imagine anyone else marrying us. Thank you so much Dr. Schumm!

  • Jerry was fantastic to work with and gave us a great wedding ceremony. He made time to really discuss every aspect of the ceremony ahead of time and gave us many options to tailor our ceremony to our needs. Jerry was on-time, professional, and really listened to us and honored our request for a more light-hearted ceremony. Would absolutely recommend him!

  • If you are having any reservations about hiring Dr. Jerry Schumm then fear not! He was beyond amazing!! I really felt like he genuinely wanted to get to know us and wanted every little detail covered. Prior to the wedding day he was very easy to communicate. As a bride, we want answers now...and he was perfect! The wedding rehearsal went off without a hitch, he had great input into the flow of the wedding. He impressed my family, he looked professional, spoke well and was super likeable!! The wedding day, he looked sharp! he wore his traditional church wear. He spoke clearly, he wasn't chessy like I've seen at weddings, he made sure to capture the moment of how I wanted our wedding to play out. I wanted romance and love and he stuck to that. I cant say anything bad about Dr. Jerry. My dad LOVEEDDD him (which says a lot). He kept me calm before and during the ceremony. The little touches he added and the calm demeanor realllyyyy helped me. You don't realize how much an officiant can mak... Read more

  • We can’t say enough about Pastor Jerry! He was so hopeful throughout the whole planning process, even when I made a last minute change about our wedding vows. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and he somehow managed to make it feel completely personalized even though we had never even met! I would recommend him to absolutely anyone looking for an officiant!

  • Rev. Jerry, Should be number one, on everyone list. He was great during our ceremony, he was very accommodating also. We had to move our wedding date for health reasons and he understood and made it easy for us. He will give you example and ideas if your unsure of what you want during your ceremony. He has a good sense of humor and an honest kind heart. He is very responsive and listens to concerns and needs. He was very easy to get to know and talk too. We loved him and we could not picture anyone else doing our ceremony. We are grateful to have him be part of our day.

  • Dr Schumm was great. He responded to all of our questions quickly. He had great suggestions. Very friendly and easy going. Was on time to every meeting. Spent a lot of time with me (the groom) before the ceremony just talking about random things keeping me at ease. Great all around guy. Highly recommend using him for your wedding.

  • Dr. Jerry STOLE OUR MONEY! We paid him in full for services in June of 2017. On 10/20/2017 he said he wasn’t officiating our wedding and would refund our $300 by 10/27/2017. On 11/1/2017 I called to touch base about the refund and he was rude, dismissive and let us know he was not returning the funds. We recorded our chat with him on 10/20 as well as 11/1 and are now having to look into civil litigation to get our $300 back and any legal fees and court costs. He is a mean ugly man who’s lied and stolen from a couple 3 days before their wedding day of 11/4/2017. He should not be allowed to continue these practices. And he certainly shouldn’t be allowed to advertise on sites such as this.

    responded with the following comments.

    I'm really sorry this person was dissatisfied. First, I did not break the contract. This couple found another officiant and said they didn't need my services. Nonetheless, the $300.00 was refunded in full when I returned from a 3 month extended vacation at the end of October. He signed for a certified letter on November 5, 2017 and cashed my check dated 11/1/17 on 11/09/17. Wish them peace and happiness in their life together. Rev. Dr. Jerry Schumm
