Wedding Officiant Serving Charlottesville and Richmond


Blue Mountain Brewery, Afton VA

Gay Lee was amazing! We were living in another state throughout the planning of our wedding, and Gay Lee made it a point to meet with us (via Skype and in person) multiple times leading up to the wedding. We always loved our meetings with her — she is warm, accepting, and genuinely wants to create a ceremony tailored to the couple! She crafted the most beautiful ceremony for us and we couldn’t have loved it more — our friends and family said it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever seen! Thank you so much!”  


I prefer to meet face-to-face with the couples I will be working with. If that is not possible then we can meet by Face Time, Skype or conference call. We discuss your ideas, what ceremonies you want to include–unity candle? Ring warming? and your choice of readings and vows.  With the information you give me, I prepare a draft of your service. Then, close to the time of your special day, we meet or talk again, to fine tune your wedding service.

If you have a rehearsal I can lead that. If you have a wedding planner, I will work with her (or him), too.

After your wedding, I sign your marriage licenses (you will get two) and send them back to the circuit court from which they were issued, per the court’s requirements.

I can talk you through how to get your marriage licenses. Brides, I can talk you through the steps to changing your name.

Contact Gay Lee at 434-409-3324 or gaylee [at] weddingpreacherforhire [dot] com. I‘d love to hear from you!
