We used Aretha to officiate our wedding and couldn't be happier about that decision. Aretha was more than a pleasure to work with. Our ceremony was custom tailored to our personalities and it was as if she knew us our whole lives. Everything we asked for she delivered. She went above and beyond her call of duty and we’ll be forever grateful for her services. She created a ceremony we'll never forget! Thank you Aretha! We’ll be recommending you to all our friends and family!

My husband and I hired Aretha as our officiant for our wedding. She did an amazing job! There couldn't have been an even better match. She made our ceremony so unique and personal. It was like she knew us for years. She is a true professional. I feel like she went above and beyond her job. She made sure our rehearsal went smoothly (and it did, I had a very large bridal party). Aretha made our day perfect in every way. If you need help writing your vows she will assist with making them perfect for you and she will even have a copy of you vows ready for you on the day of your wedding. Everyone is still telling us how wonderful our ceremony was and I thank Aretha for that. She is outstanding. I would 100% recommend her, please don't even bother looking any further.

My wife and I searched for a wedding officiant for months but we kept running into issues. We would get denied by some people simply because we didn't share the same religion. Others simply denied us saying the date didn't fit their schedules. And some denied us without sharing any reasons why. Then by the grace of God we stumbled across Aretha's website and decided to schedule a conference call. From the very first call until the date of the ceremony, Aretha was there for me and my wife each step of the way, answering all of our questions in detail. Also making us feel comfortable with asking any questions or concerns pertaining the ceremony.
Aretha also held a rehearsal so that we felt even more comfortable for our big day. Any suggestion we had to include or exclude for the wedding ceremony Aretha met. Aretha made the process of getting married so much easier and comfortable than we've ever felt prior to meeting with her. All I can say is the vision, dream and plans that me and my wife had in our heads for this ceremony was brought to fruition and we owe that to Aretha! We highly recommend using her as your wedding officiant.

My husband and I are so pleased with the way our ceremony turned out and Aretha played one of the biggest parts in making it so perfect! From the very first conversation we knew she was going to be our choice of officiant, she was able to listen to our wants and create a ceremony that was young and modern but also romantic. Although we were a bit late in the planning process Aretha was able to quickly schedule time to speak with us, making sure to work within our schedules and have a quick turnaround for readings and options to choose from for our big day.
When our day arrived Aretha was very professional, on time, and looked just as amazing as any of our guests which is very important for all of the pictures being taken at the ceremony. Even though we threw a few curve balls during the ceremony at her she was able to adapt and keep her composure in order to give us the best ceremony we could ask for. We will definitely be recommending Aretha Gaskin to all friends and family looking for an officiant in the future.
