  • Reverend Gale York was the perfect choice. We got married at Little River Farms and she was extremely professional with multiple ceremony options at different price points. She was very helpful during the pre-planning process, day of rehersal and onsite wedding exectution. We could not have selected a better reverend for our special day. Best!

  • Reverend York is awesome! Her rates are very reasonable, and she has several different ceremonies to choose from, from non-traditional to very traditional, or she'll help you design your own. She helped make our ceremony perfect! She was right on time, very accommodating, and even prepared for technical difficulties (we had music equipment for singing during our ceremony), in case our equipment failed and she had to take over.

  • Reverend York was absolutely sweet, professional, and perfect for us. She was incredibly thoughtful from start to finish, from her flexibility on how the ceremony would proceed to her thought and care to make sure she pronounced our names perfectly! To top it off, she had a friend in the audience taking pictures, which she shared with us right after the wedding and were some of the first pictures we were able to get from anyone. Just lovely. We highly recommend her services.

  • Gale helped keep our ceremony as relaxed as possible. I met with her weeks before hand and spent more time talking with her about life than I did the wedding. She knows her stuff inside and out with a special skill to easily cater your vows to your desires. I thank God we found Gale. She not only guided us through our vows she helped celebrate our union during the reception. She is just one of the family now. Thank you so much, Gale!!! We love you!! HUGS

  • Reverend York was so amazing for us. She made everything easy from day one. However, the day of the wedding she made things run so smoothly and thought of every little detail. She even thought to show my dad how to pull my veil back!

  • Our wedding was beyond even my wildest imagination. Reverend Gale was everything and more I could have asked for. Helped guide me to the ceremony we wanted, was open to customizing the service to fit with our personalities. The day is one I'll never forget. She was very kind and patient with changes in time which we had at the last minute. The ceremony was flawless. Highly recommend her for such a very important day is someones life.

  • Reverend York did an amazing job at our wedding. We loved how open minded she was, and her willingness to work with our requests no matter how strange they may had been; she is such a sweetheart! She was extremely helpful and flexible. She coordinated everything with us in a smooth fashion at a very reasonable price. She got along with with our guests as well, and the guests loved her. We loved having her presence there and would recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant,

  • Reverend Gayle York has been a real gift in our life. We were looking for a non-denominational wedding officiant, and although she performs Christian weddings, was flexible as we navigated thru the wedding planning process and she made it very easy for us to craft our own ceremony - she sent us a few different documents with ceremony outlines for us to pick and choose from. I was able to add just the things I wanted, adjust the wording to better suit our needs and to let her be the expert on the best way to take certain steps. Our large family guest ceremony was made absolutely perfect by her attention to what we wanted - including her taking the lead when I said, "Okay, let's do this" to start the ceremony. Her voice carries well without being overbearing and her experience with over 1000 wedding ceremonies (maybe even more than 1500 now!) really comes thru with the way she words each section of the ceremony. This woman is the real deal - I highly recommend working with her if you... Read more

    Thank you Alisa for the wonderful review. It was my pleasure to share your special day with you and Zohair. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of bringing your two world's beliefs together to help make your ceremony exactly what you wanted it to be.

    I am sorry you thought I was not flexible enough to suit your needs. Perhaps if I knew who you were I could address the problem and learn from my mistakes or at least try to resolve any issues you may have had. I am always open to trying to assist my clients in anyway I can.

  • I found out the week off the wedding that there was an additional charge for her to attend the rehersal. Who does that? Also she showed up 30 minutes before the ceremony started, panicked and bombarding me with questions. Then she went to groom and started bombarding him with questions. She was trying to change everything around. The ceremony was fine no major blunders. But everyone in the wedding party knew what was going on except the officiant. It was obvious to everyone. We paid $300 for what I considered poor service. It didn't feel like there was any emotional connection while reading the script. I felt like she rushed out vows. She didn't attend the rehersal and showed up 30 minutes before the ceremony. Very unprofessional. She should have been there much earlier. I would not recommend her to anyone.

    responded with the following comments.

    Amber & Matthew, I am so sorry you felt this way. At our first meeting, I am certain I informed you that when purchasing Gold Level there is an additional charge for my attending your rehearsal. (On contract you didn’t specify a time for your rehearsal - you simply wrote TBD- you were to let me know if I was needed.) I apologize if you did not like the way I read your ceremony. I try to read all of my ceremonies slowly, with pauses & heartfelt meaning. As every ceremony is different I always preread the ceremony several times - I never rush through a ceremony. This is simply the way I perform my ceremony and I am sorry if it was not to your liking. I am sorry you thought 30 minutes before the wedding was not enough time for me to check and make certain everything was in place. I totally understood my role in your ceremony and appreciated the coordinator from the Stover House pointing out the rehearsal strategy. I was not panicky as you might have thought, I was merely trying to attended to detail. When I asked who would have the rings - I believe it was someone in the room who discussed a change with you. The only thing I asked to change was for myself to process out first. This is in order to ask your guest to silence their cell phones before we start the wedding ceremony. The coordinator saw my point of view and agreed with me. I would never change a rehearsal strategy the day of the wedding. My philosophy is for the bridal couple to have everything their way. I pride myself in being extremely professional in every aspect of my business. I am sorry our communication about your rehearsal broke down. If you would have voiced your displeasure at the price- I am certain we could have worked something out. I hope you can understand my response. I only want my bridal couples ceremonies to be a wonderful expression of their love and hopes and dreams for the future together. I hope this is what yours was.

  • I found Reverend York on Wedding Wire while searching for a non-denominational officiant online. We spoke with several officiants and found Gale to be extremely warm, professional and flexible. She was kind enough to meet with us in person before we selected her and after we signed an agreement, Rev. York sent us several ceremony options. Not being a religious couple, we selected a contemporary service, which we were able to customize with a hands ceremony, plus the addition of my aunt who read a blessing. The ceremony start to finish was no more than 20 minutes, which was perfect for us. Rev. York happily participated in our rehearsal and really brought a lovely uniqueness to our wedding day. We appreciated her willingness to customize our ceremony and vows, which received a number of compliments from our guests. We are so thankful we found her and would highly recommend her.
