  • We had the pleasure of having Rev. Giz as our officiant at our wedding this past July. We were initially at a loss trying to find a good fit for what we wanted, and were introduced to Giz via our wedding planner. Giz made the experience personal, and prior to our wedding, took the time to meet with us and get to know us and uncover what it was we would be looking for in our ceremony. While we both come from Catholic families, we by no means wanted a full mass, but wanted to be sensitive to our families and their expectation of "sacraments" in some capacity. We wanted to be in and out in ten minutes flat, but still have ceremony be meaningful. Giz totally got that, listened to us, adapted to what we wanted and far exceeded our expectations in his delivery. He is extremely sentimental, well spoken, and very funny - and not in a cheesy officiant way which we so appreciated. Giz had the most important job at our wedding, and we are so happy he got to be part of our special day. We consider... Read more

    Thank you so much for your warm words. It’s refreshing to “work” with such great people who understand it still takes a sense of humor and a “go with the flow” mentality, even in.. yes, even in a global pandemic. It was an honor and truly a pleasure to experience this moment in life with you. Your friends and family bring a vibe to life that is genuinely uncommon in most parts of life. Cheers and thanks for the 5 stars!

  • My wife and I were married this year, 11/11/2019. From the start, reverend Giz went above and beyond to help us create a very special ceremony. He took the time to get to know us in person and really made a great effort to understand us as a couple. Instead of giving us a plain or generic service outline, he adapted a unique ceremony that made captured everything that I, my wife, and our families valued. He walked us through every step and took all the stress out of the process so that we were left with a beautiful and perfect moment. Also, Giz is a fantastic speaker. He is clear, precise with his words, and above all a great listener. He is hilarious, very professional in person, and a great guy all around! Highly, highly recommended.

  • Jeffery was all we could’ve hoped for and more. He met all of our requests/hopes for the ceremony, but also went above and beyond by offering us advice for the day of and being a nice calming presence immediately leading up to the big moments. Pretty sure every wedding guest came up and praised the ceremony, most thinking he was a close family member. No way we could’ve found someone so great just online. DONT LOOK FURTHER, Jeffrey knocked it out of the park. Thanks again Jeffrey for help making our day everything we dreamed of !

  • We are so thankful that Rev. Giz performed our son's wedding ceremony. He was very accommodating, allowing a relative to translate part of the ceremony into another language for us, so that all present would understand what was being said. Our family is not very religious, and he prepared a ceremony that was contemporary with some religious parts, which was a perfect balance. We did not follow many of the usual wedding traditions, and Rev. Giz had no problem going with our unusual flow, which eased our overall stress level tremendously. He was a perfect gentleman, and allowed the bride and groom to be the focal point. We could not be happier with his services and recommend him highly!

  • We are soooo happy we chose Rev. Giz to officiate our ceremony on the beach in Rehoboth. After interviewing several officiants, we decided we wanted to work with him because of his experience, sincerity, and the way we connected. We knew he would be able to make our ceremony special and give it the gravitas we sought. He did exactly that! Rev. Gisriel was very flexible and easy to work with as we determined how we wanted our ceremony to go. His experience paid off as he thought of details and questions that never occurred to us. We give Rev. Giz our highest recommendation. You should check him out!

  • I had Jeffrey Gisriel as our officiant. From our first phone call was really all that was needed, he made us feel so much better and really is the kind of guy where you meet him once and automatically feel like you've known him your whole life! He was super nice and got everyone to laugh during the ceremony which really helped the vibe stay upbeat and positive! The wording was perfect! Short but straight to the point! I was super pleased with everything! Everyone loved him. THANK YOU! –Mr. & Mrs. O’Donnell

  • What can I NOT say about Rev. Giz? From the get go, he's been super approachable. He was very good at explaining what I needed to bring, what to expect and more. My husband and I didn't meet him until like 20 minutes before the ceremony (well..... my husband) and I didn't meet him until I reached the end of the aisle. We had a beach wedding on 9/13/15 and the ceremony was done so incredibly well. Dear husband told me that Rev. Giz gave him pointers on what to expect and reminded him to breathe as my dad walked me down the aisle. Completely professional, and worth it. During the time immediately following the ceremony and during the reception, my friends and family complimented me on the wonderful service our friend did for us. No one believed that we had not ever met him before. We had the option to have him at the rehearsal dinner, but opted not to do this, and believe me, Rev. Giz can make it seem like he's been your best friend for years even when he's not ever met you until the big... Read more

  • Revered Gisriel officiated our beach ceremony on 8/15/15 and was an absolute treat. Jeffrey was incredibly accommodating, has an awesome sense of humor, and truly made our ceremony so special and heartfelt. We we're extremely happy that he was able to join us for our rehearsal as doing so made the big day go off without a hitch. He was more than willing to make any changes we asked of for our ceremony script and we were told there wasn't a dry eye in the house!! Rev Giz was an absolute pleasure to work with and we absolutely recommend him!

  • Reverend Gisriel was fantastic! We picked him based off the great reviews online and they proved right! Jeffrey was so easy to work with and replied to my emails quickly. Without meeting prior to our wedding day, our beach ceremony went smoothly and flawlessly. Reverend Gisriel is professional, has a great sense of humor, and loves what he does. We would highly recommend him!!
