  • Phran was so amazing! We booked with her after running into a lot of issues with other people. I feel like all that lead us to exactly where we needed to be with Phran!!! From the first time that we spoke on the phone I was completely at ease. She really took the time to talk about what we wanted in our ceremony and I never felt rushed or anything. I felt like from the first minute she wanted this to be as perfect for us. Things I never even thought to ask, she asked me. She made sure that there was a place in the ceremony to have a remembrance for both of our mothers who have passed away. We used her home chapel and it was just perfect for what we needed. Phran was so friendly and accommodating, she really made our day perfect and we are so glad we found her!!!! I do truly believe that we were meant to find Phran!!! We will never forget how amazing she was on the most important day of our lives!!!!

    Another amazing and fun wedding. Eric and Morris decided on a small intimate wedding and I was able to accommodate them in my Home Chapel. It was a pleasure to write and perform their wedding ceremony.

  • There is no better option of an Officiant than Phran. She is a loving and charismatic person and created the most beautiful ceremony. She was always available and made a special effort to tailor our ceremony to our specific tastes; the entire church was moved. Phran will treat you as family through the whole process.

    Lauren, Thank you so much for your extremely kind words. I'm so glad you felt like family for we are all just one big family no matter where we live or where we come from. It was an honor to be part of your celebration of Love.

  • In short, Rev. Phran is awesome! From the consultation to the wedding, she was responsive, good humored, and thoughtful. For the initial consultation, she met with us and really took the time to get to know us and what we wanted out of our ceremony. Then she crafted a ceremony that was wonderful and uniquely "us." After the ceremony, I had several people comment on how much they enjoyed it. I would highly recommend Phran to anyone who is in need of an officiant!!

    Thank you Lindsey for the opportunity to be a part of your "Harry Potter" wedding. It certainly was fun and original. And thank you for casting your magic with your 5 star review. Phran.

  • Our wedding was unusual in that we were combining different cultures and she was very accommodating. Phran spent time getting to know us prior to the wedding and she was willing to let us design and refine our ceremony as needed. Thank you Phran!

    Thank you Brigitte for your warm words and the 5 star review. It was a pleasure working with you and an honor to be a part of your celebration. The best to you and Maungo. Phran.

  • My now-husband and I knew we had made the right decision to have Phran marry us when she seemed to know exactly what kind of ceremony we wanted without much info from us! Phran ran the group through the ceremony at the rehearsal, including getting our slightly-easy-to-distract best man to pay attention by making him laugh. On the day of the wedding, she didn't disappoint. The service was everything we wanted it to be, and we've gotten many comments that it was the "best ceremony" that folks have ever seen. Phran, you're the best!

  • Phran is fantastic to work with. She met with us to review our wedding and ideas that she has in her magic book! She was able to put together the perfect ceremony! Creative, loving, caring, relaxed - she made us feel all of these things and more. She followed through on every details and when the day arrived helped us get everything set. She was so relaxed that she made the entire process easy for us. Incredible lady.....we were very fortunate to find her for our ceremony!

    Thank you Bob for your kind words. Bob and Chris were 2 of the happiest people I have ever married. They virtually beamed all day. It was a pleasure to create their ceremony and to pronounce them married for life.

    Thank you, Valerie, for your kind words. One could not ask for a more perfect setting that your parents exquisite home. It was a pleasure to work with your event planner, Stephanie. She kept every thing flowing and never let the threat of rain dampen anyone's spirit.

  • Two nights before the wedding we found out that our officiant had the wrong date. By luck we found Phran on the internet. She was gracious, caring and accommodating. She worked with us on our ceremony and had it all together by the next day. She lit up the house with her smile the day she arrived for our wedding. We were honored to have her officiate. Thank you Phran for saving our day. It was a pleasure to meet you.

    If there were ever a couple destined to be together, it is the two of you. I was most fortunate to be the one chosen to unite you in marriage. And it was such fun being with your families, all blessed with a sprinkling of rain from the heavens. Thank you for your kind words. Phran.

  • Phran is very energetic, upbeat, but also serious when necessary to give you confidence in her knowledge and experience about choosing vows, conducting the ritual appropriately, taking care of the legal work, etc. I am very happy that we selected her to be our officiant for our very small and intimate wedding, which she helped make special and memorable.

    Your wedding was small and intimate and the love that filled your apartment was huge. I know that you both will love and care for each other and have a rich happy life together. Thank you for choosing me as your Officiant.

  • We were put in touch with Reverend Phran Gacher through our wedding planner, and we immediately felt comfortable with her. She knew exactly how to guide us in figuring out exactly what we wanted for our ceremony, and really listened to what was important to us. From the first meeting, to the rehearsal and wedding day, Rev. Phran was a delight to work with and contributed greatly to our beautiful ceremony. We would recommend her to anyone!

    Thank you Jennifer. It was a pleasure getting to know you and Sunil a little and meeting with your families at historic Merrimon House in Raleigh. I love working with Priscilla from Orangerie Events. She always sees to it that the day runs smoothly. Wishing you all the Best. Rev. Phran.

  • If you're looking for personality, character, friendliness, a smile and a person who listens and is ready 2 translate your dreams into a perfect reality then look no more.. She listens to you and I promise in the time you sit and tell your story she has already connected the dots from your heart to your ceremony and she doesn't even have to know you your lifetime.. We met literally the day before as and we found the most magnificent officiant Phran.. We decided we were going to have a basic ceremony but she turned it into a wonderful union and a sand pouring for our love and absent families.. patient beyond her means and a lady of her word... thank you..

  • Phran is a very personable and professional person. She was very helpful and provided us with more than enough options for our wedding ceremony. She was extremely easy to work with and was sure to make certain that we were comfortable with her and the plans for the wedding. She stayed in contact with us from our first meeting and I must say that it was probably the least stressful part of the whole ordeal. Pattie and I hope to maybe visit with her in the near future. Love her!!

    Thank you Jason for you very kind words. You and Pattie were fun to work with and I loved including a 3 ribbon hand fasting. It added a nice touch. The Imperial Centre in Rocky Mount is a fascinating place and easy enough to find off of the main route. It would be a pleasure to have you and Pattie drop in for a visit in the near future. Please let me know if I can be of service to you again.

    Thank you Adam for your succinct review. Having your wedding in the gazebo right on Crabtree Lake was the most picturesque setting for an intimate family celebration. I enjoyed working with you and meeting your families. Rev. Phran.

  • We enjoyed excellent service from Rev. Phran. She was helpful with offering up ideas. She also allowed for us to have as much input as we wished with her taking care of the rest, resulting in the perfect ceremony for us. Rev. Phran was very easy to get along with and very organized with all of her responsibilities as well as keeping everything flowing properly through the ceremony. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant!! Thank-you Rev. Phran!! Chad & Jill Clayton, NC

    Chad and Jill chose the Enoch Winery in Benson and what a delight it was. The ceremony was performed right on the edge of the vineyard in a spacious gazebo with the guest sitting comfortable in chairs on the grass. Everyone had a really good view of the family sand blending followed by a hand holding circle of love. A new family was created that day. I was honored to be a part of it.
