Aretha exceeded all expectations!! Hire her, you won't regret it!
Thanks to Aretha, our wedding ceremony was truly special - totally tailored to describe our love story and fit our personalities. She really took the time to get to know us and our relationship, and it clearly showed throughout the ceremony. She was a pleasure to work with and put up with countless changes/requests we made in the weeks leading up to the big day. What's more, on the day of, the microphone the venue provided for the ceremony wasn't great - the audio cut in and out many times during the ceremony, but Aretha remained poised and maintained her warm tone throughout. In addition, we were interrupted by a blaring boat horn and Aretha played it off and we all shared a laugh. That is who you want officiating your wedding - someone who knows how to keep their cool and turn curve-balls into memorable moments. She is a true professional and hiring her was one of the best decisions we made. Thank you Aretha!!!
We used Aretha Gaskin 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!
Aretha did such an AMAZING job on our ceremony! She had 140 people crying with our personal vows. We did a Wine Box Ritual, this is not well known to many couples, however she incorporated this ritual seamlessly into our ceremony. We also wanted our 3 younger children to say a poem, she helped them orchestrate the whole thing!! Not to mention how professional and personable she is or the fact that she was my guide, my shoulder, and never let me settle for anything less then what I wanted my dream ceremony to be. Our wedding was PERFECT because of her!!! I would not only recommend her....I'm telling you, if you want a PERFECT ceremony with your PERSONAL touch, she will and can make it happen. My husband was floored by her work. Thank you Aretha!
We can't even begin to explain how amazing and special Aretha made our wedding ceremony. We're soooo happy we found her and she was able to officiate our wedding. Through out the entire wedding planning process she was there and available to answer any and all questions, this really helped to alleviate the pressure of trying to plan the perfect wedding. She was extremely helpful and responsive to answering emails and phone calls. I was amazingly surprised at how she was ALWAYS available for us. Everything was perfect, the words she chose to use to emphasize our love still has me swooning until this day! We couldn't have chosen a better person to be apart of our special day. Literally people are still asking me about my wedding ceremony and telling me how beautiful it was.
The last thing we wanted for our wedding was a generic Celebrant. We met Aretha and she was the exact opposite of generic. She was sincere, humorous and inspirational. Thanks to her professional advice and knowledge, our ceremony came to life. It was beautiful, meaningful and will live on in our memories of our special day forever. Throughout the planning process up to the day of, Aretha was prepared and on point. She was always available to us, answering any questions or calming any worries we had. Even after our wedding, Aretha has monitored and checked in with us to make sure we have received our Certified Marriage Certificate in a timely fashion. We are beyond pleased with Aretha's services. We are so glad we found her and even more glad that we chose her. Thank you so much Aretha for your dedication and hard work! Tiffany & Myer Brown
