  • Gay Lee was wonderful and highly recommend! She was very thoughtful in helping us lay out how we wanted our small ceremony to go and we are thankful she was part of our special day. She helped us incorporate various passages and messages that related to our relationship, which made it all that much more special.

  • Reverend Gay is the sweetest! My now husband and I loved working with her. We got to know her well through our pre-marital counseling sessions, which were incredibly helpful in helping us understand one another better, identify potential sources of conflict and how to navigate them, and prepare us for married life. She was very patient with us during our rehearsal. On the day of, she arrived early to coordinate with the rest of our vendors. She also shared a personalized message during our ceremony. She is the kindest and an incredible joy to work with! **This was a micro wedding held on April 3, 2021 with all participants either fully vaccinated or tested negative for COVID19 twice**

    Daisy and her husband, Ryan, and I got to be good friends, during our premarital counseling sessions. Thank you for the kind words. Can you think of a better profession than being able to be part of peoples' lives at such a joyful and important time?

  • Our original officiant cancelled ~1 week before our wedding on 6/25/2021. Luckily Rev. Gay was available for our date and had done weddings at our venue (Keswick Vineyards). Since our very first outreach she was very responsive. She is knowledgeable and professional, which we could tell after our very first conversation. During our rehearsal and ceremony, she remained calm and helped our coordinator ensure everything went as it’s supposed to. She took her time to incorporate very personal details into the ceremony, such as analyzing a poem we had provided. We are so thankful that we were able to find her and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a knowledge, detail-oriented, patient and caring officiant.

    Gisel and her husband were a delight to work with. And, I enjoyed meeting some of their friends and family members. I will add that Keswick Vineyard, has a professional and caring staff, on call to take care of any little thing. Finally, the weather cooperated. What more can you ask for? Much happiness in the years to come, Gisel!

  • Gay Lee did a beautiful job on our wedding day. She graciously worked with us when COVID first started to reschedule our ceremony. We ended up doing a backyard ceremony with only parents present since we were set on our original date. Even though we found her online, she spent a lot of time getting to know us and provided a very special and personal ceremony for us. It was a joy working with her and we highly recommend her!

  • We were so lucky to have Gay Lee officiate our wedding. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and helped us create the perfect ceremony. My husband and I are both Christian, but did not want a super religious ceremony- Gay Lee had the perfect readings and helped us strike the tone we were looking for. We would absolutely hire her again for our wedding day. Thank you so much for everything Gay Lee!

  • Gay Lee helped make our day so special. When we talked with her during our initial meeting, she took the time to get to know us and asked us great questions about our day, what we were looking for in a ceremony, etc. She put together a great ceremony that we were delighted with and that our families enjoyed. I appreciate her making it an easy process. We had a difficult time finding someone we wanted to officiate our wedding, but when we met Gay Lee, we knew she would bring such great presence and energy to our wedding day. We were fortunate to have her a part of our day!

  • Rev. Einstein was great to work with, from start to finish. As soon as we had our first face-to-face meeting with her we knew she was the right choice for us. She was responsive, punctual, flexible, open-minded, and easy to talk with. We needed someone to write a ceremony for us that would feel traditional but relaxed, to incorporate religious elements that our families and friends would be comfortable with. She asked us a lot of good questions, wrote a beautiful ceremony that pleased both of our families, and threw in a couple of good jokes based on what she had gotten to know about the two of us. She also ran our rehearsal, which was an invaluable service since we did not have a wedding planner. Planning a wedding is always going to be stressful, but Reverend Einstein took a LOT of that stress away, and my wife and I were both able to relax, enjoy the ceremony she had written, and focus on each other. I would recommend her to anyone in the area, especially if you have families wit... Read more

  • Reverend Gay Lee is nothing short of exceptional. She is easy and fun to to work with, an utmost professional, and is skilled in crafting the perfect ceremony to match the couple. Our wedding had a surprise tornado 10 minutes before the ceremony and she was able to keep calm, adapt to the changing circumstances, and ultimately her ceremony set a joyous and happy tone for the rest of the wedding despite the circumstances. She kept to the plan but was also able to seamlessly weave in fun comments on the fly about the weather - this speaks to her abilities and experience. If you're looking for the best, look no further. Highly recommended!

    Thanks, Parker. I will NEVER forget your wedding, that is for sure. I hope that you and Lauren had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Would love to find out how your lives unfold, if only on Facebook. Continued blessings. Gay Lee
