Hi Gary,there are seriously no words to describe how incredible you made our wedding ceremony. I have never witnessed a ceremony so personal, so touching, so fun and so perfect.You have a true gift. We had countless people coming up to us saying “Where did you find him?”. It was the little things you did like put your hand on Paul’s shoulder when you saw him get tearful when he first saw me, to standing to the side and whispering the vows in our ears, to getting down to little Jaden’s level and giving him “props” when it was time for his vows. All Seasons Weddings and the couples who have chosen Gary Faris to perform their ceremonies are VERY, VERY lucky!
I wanted to make sure to follow up on the great website you have and the amazing Wedding Officiant we chose. We chose Gary Faris perform our ceremony and he was truly a gem to work with. We found that Gary is very generous with his time and he even met with us twice (went out of his way). Gary a wonderful sense of humour and a very huge heart.We are so impressed with his professionalism and the way he presents himself. He has long hair which is pretty trendy in terms of being old fashioned and yet up to date and well kept. I would hope that no one would judge him by his hair. There are plenty more serious things in the world to worry about other than Gary's hair. We love him! I would highly recommend Gary Faris for any special occasion.
Gary Faris didn't meet our expectations, he exceeded them and then some. What a wonderful man. The time he took with Paul and I and our daughter Jenna, who sang at the wedding service was remarkable.

We had several compliments on our ceremony and our officiant. Gary Faris made everything easy, fun and relaxed. We especially loved how he said the vows that we were to repeat into our ear instead of the mic for us to repeat, this way when our guests heard our vows it was from us.
