  • We where so appreciative to have Gerald officiate our ceremony. We went into our search like most ppl ok who's highly rated how legit are these reviews. When I came across Gerald on this site and went on his website there was a sense that here is someone who gets it. That we can bring friends and family together in a way that is far from typical. Gather round grab a hand and help us start this journey together. We all search for ways to express our inner self in a way that is true without getting lost in the moment. Gerald was our conduit to the world that day with his ability to tell our story with careful attention to our incite of each other. All of our guests felt engaged in the ceremony and not too many dry eyes among then. Thank you sir for making the entire process easy, fun and most of all special.

  • Gerald recently officiated our wedding in October. We chose Gerald because of his unique format and delivery of wedding ceremonies, and the day of the wedding he gave us exactly what we wanted. It was so personalized and it truly felt like he was invested not only in that day but also in our relationship as much as our friends and family that were present for the ceremony. Gerald was by far the easiest of all of our vendors to work with, and exceeded our expectations at every step. He includes you in each major step of the process including the planning and revisions of what he prepares to say that day and the overall script of the ceremony. We highly recommend Gerald for anyone who is looking for a one of a kind and personalized wedding ceremony.

  • Gerald was amazing, from beginning to end! We met with a couple other officiants and he was the only one who really took the time to get to know us and make sure that the ceremony was personal and meaningful, and allowed us to review and request minor revisions several times. He was quick to respond and extremely flexible and accommodating! Some other officiants just have a Mad-Libs-esque template but Gerald's ceremony was obviously written with thought and care, and we've gotten nothing but compliments over how beautiful it was. He even managed to wrangle everyone at the rehearsal and make sure that everyone involved knew their roles for the next day. It was truly a pleasure to work with him - we cannot recommend him enough!

  • We could not recommend Gerry more – he was absolutely fantastic when he officiated our wedding ceremony on Sept 30, 2017. Not only did he meet with us on two separate occasions to get to know us and learn about our story, but Gerry also met us at our wedding venue for the rehearsal. His creativity and personalization made our ceremony special, heartfelt, and meaningful. At the ceremony, the microphone malfunctioned but he didn’t miss a beat and projected loud and clear for everyone to hear. Afterwards, countless guests told us that our wedding ceremony was the best wedding ceremony that they had ever seen. The wedding ceremony is the most important part of the wedding and we are so happy that Gerry was there with us!

  • Working with Gerald was an absolute pleasure! Everyone loved him and our ceremony. He made the whole process simple and is very informative when it comes to what steps you need to take to get your actual marriage license. When we were working on our ceremony outline he was very open to any suggestions but also gave much needed input. You really get a unique experience since he involves you every step of the way. I’ll admit we were a little worried at first when we were trying to come up with ideas for the ceremony but once we met with Gerry he was so helpful and reassuring. He is really there for you from start to finish. On the day of the wedding he was there early making sure everything was in place. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a beautiful ceremony and experience.

  • We got married on 07.23.17 at The Manor in West Orange, NJ. Gerald really helped us to make our wedding ceremony personable and unique. He took the time to answer our questions and made everything seem like a breeze. He was very accommodating to our crazy/busy schedules. We are so happy that Gerald was our officiant. It made our wedding day exactly what we wanted it to be, perfect!!

  • We found everything we wanted for our wedding officiant with Gerry. After doing an exhaustive search online, we read a number of Gerry’s positive reviews on a number of different sites. From our first email, Gerry was responsive and very flexible. He was able to work around our crazy work schedules to meet with us. Gerry also has a wealth of knowledge of various wedding customs and traditions, across different faiths and cultures, and can help you create the perfect ceremony for you. For us, we were looking for a simple, yet meaningful, non-religious ceremony. Based on our meetings and the questionnaire Gerry had us fill out, he created a ceremony that truly told our story. Gerry has a true talent and we got so many compliments on our ceremony. It was exactly what we wanted. Some advice: when filling out the questionnaire, you get what you put into it. Take the time to think of meaningful stories from your relationship and Gerry will craft those into a beautiful ceremony.

  • Having Gerald officiate our wedding was a great decision. We were planning our wedding from out of state and Gerald worked with us to make the process as easy as possible conducting phone meetings in place of in-person meetings and working around our schedule to accomplish everything that needed to be completed. The ceremony was unique to our guests but customized to represent our personality and relationship. Thank You Gerald for making our wedding unforgettable.

  • My husband, Steven and I both agree that our wedding day was the best day of our lives. Our guests are still commenting 2 weeks later about how they loved everything from start to finish. Gerry was the reason our ceremony felt so intimate and personalized. From the beginning, he got to know us and had us each answer questions separately to gain more familiarity with our background and relationship. He incorporated our inter-faith religions and added beautiful Jewish and Catholic touches. He also incorporated an adorable poem about dogs that related to love that our guests are still talking about. Our boxer, Jaxon was our ring-bearer and Gerry was so accommodating to our wishes to have him involved. He customized our ceremony and made us feel so special. We appreciate his honesty, ability to share and express our love for one another and heartfelt words in such a unique ceremony. Our guests were all blown away by the joyous and loving atmosphere he created from the start. We are so than... Read more

  • Gerry MADE our ceremony! I might be a little biased but it's still the best ceremony I've ever attended :) ...Gerry had us answer a list of questions, separately, about our relationship and how we met and our hopes and dreams for the future, which he incorporated into our personalized ceremony. He chose poems and readings that fit best with our story and the feeling we wanted to convey to our friends and family. There were many, many happy and emotional tears during our ceremony, which were all part of the intimate setting Gerry put together for us. We still get complements all the time about how unique and personal our ceremony was. We are still so thrilled we chose to go with Gerry as our officiant, he delivered above and beyond our expectations!

  • Gerald was great! Awesome to collaborate with over the course of a few months. He took care to get to know us, our history and interests, in order to devise a ceremony everyone was pleased with. I will say, he runs a tight ship hahaha very punctual, and he'll whip your party into shape - so be ready to get rehearsed! Overall would totally recommend. A really sweet and funny guy, and very professional.
