  • Gail recently performed our ceremony in the Mural Room at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. Not only did she provide us with a beautiful service, every word that she spoke resonated with us, and our guests (who were shedding tears of joy throughout.) Gail had fantastic suggestions for our ceremony, all of which we ended up incorporating. Although we had a very small wedding, several of our guests spoke with her before the ceremony and later reported to us how wonderful and relatable she was in their conversation. Gail even ended up having some contacts in common with my Godmother, and my Husband. We feel that she was absolutely meant to be part of our day, and are so grateful to her.

  • On July 4th, Rod and I were married by in our home by Gail Kelly Murray. We wanted a small and intimate wedding with our loved ones present and Gail provided the most warm, lovely and heartfelt ceremony possible. Gail stayed in contact with us up to the date, making sure that everything that we wanted would be included in our special day. She offered the most beautiful vows - as if they were written just for us! We feel so fortunate that Gail was able to officiate at our wedding! Pam & Rod Granger

Gail was extremely acommodating of our requests for wording and very helpful in suggesting changes to improve the ideas we brought to her based on her vast experience as a wedding officiant. In the end the ceremony was pefect for us and our family. Thank you, Gail!!

  • We hired her only a week before the wedding because our chaplain was deployed. She did an amazing job with meeting up with us, making it to the rehearsal last minute and with the ceremony. She kept to everything I wanted and there were no surprises. I would definitely recommend.

    Thank you very much for your kind words. I wish you the best as you begin your new life together! Warmly, Gail

  • Gail was amazing! She was willing to drive down to Ventura for our wedding and rehearsal and was so great to work with. She really captured our thoughts and feelings in the vows she prepared for us.

  • Gail was a pleasure to work with. We had a non denominational wedding and asked her to dress formally, instead of wearing a typical ceremonial gown. And she did with all smiles! The wedding couldn't have been more perfect, and I thank Gail for her professionalism and knowledge! I would highly recommend Gail to officiate!

  • Gail Kelley Murray was the best choice I could have made when picking an officiant for my wedding. She will customize your ceremony however you like and won't make u do any counseling appointments! She even dressed to match! Very reliable as well would definitely recommend her!

  • Gail was absolutely amazing. She was professional and has a sense of humor that my husband and I enjoyed. The service was just the right length, not too long; not too short. Gail was very helpful during the process leading up to the wedding and was flexible regarding the way the wedding was performed. We threw a change into the works the day of the wedding and she didn't blink an eye. I don't plan to marry again since I found my man but, if I ever did, I would have no qualms calling Gail.

  • We were so happy to find Gail...we had her officiate a private ceremony for our renewal in Solvang. She responded to every single question and communication right away with really only what I can describe as a lot of heart. She is so naturally warm and has a genuineness that we deeply appreciated and she was the perfect flexible balance between formality and spontaneity -- she has an easy humor. She gave us the perfect experience. 5 stars in every way.
