"Having Didier Gincig officiate our wedding was a great decision! He was responsive and took the time to get to know us. He walked us through every detail of our ceremony in advance. The day of he arrived early so we could connect, and in the end it felt like a cherished friend was officiating, not someone we met only months prior. We both loved his wisdom and insights about marriage, and the personal touches he added to the ceremony about our love story and lives. We could not have been happier! He also recommended our photographer who we really enjoyed working with. We are thankful to Didier for his help in making our day special!"

"It is in loving, as well as being loved, that we most truly become ourselves. No matter what we do, say, accomplish, or become, it is our capacity to love that is most important."
“When my fiancé and I decided to go away for a private destination wedding, we chose the Rosario Resort on Orcas Island. The resort’s wedding coordinator sent a list of several officiants on the island and we immediately called each on the list in search of the one we felt was the best fit for us. After several conversations with each of our options, we chose Didier and were very happy with the service he performed on our wedding day. I was most impressed with his desire to make the ceremony what we wanted and his sensitivity to our preferences. I would recommend him to any couple looking for an officiant at their Orcas Island wedding, or wherever you may be getting married."
I would say that most initial contacts come from brides. I wonder why. The second contact usually includes both the bride and the groom (obviously this does not include same sex marriages). Usually the parents of the bride pay for the wedding and the parents of the groom (again, this is not including same sex couples) usually pays for the rehearsal dinner, if there is one. With couples getting married at a later age than in the past, many couples pay for their own weddings. Whatever case you may find yourself, here's a shout out to grooms and parents of the couple. As a husband who is now in our thirty-fifth year together, I enjoy sharing anything I can with grooms and brides that can be helpful and encouraging. It's not always easy, and it can sometimes feel like a roller coaster with twists and turns and ups and downs. However, from my experience, we rise back up from challenges that much stronger as a couple and as individuals. We make each other better people. Anything I can do by way of creating a wedding ceremony that speaks to your hearts and the hearts of your guests. Anything I can do to make your lives easier by helping with wedding planning and making sure all goes well at the wedding; that is a service that is important. We all want to support each other for what could be the biggest day of your lives. I'm all in with friendly enthusiasm. When we husband our relationship, the fruits of the harvest are friendship, love, support, connection, and so much more.

"Didier Gincig took the time to get to know us and was very flexible with our schedules. We felt so comfortable with him and really appreciated the personal touch with our wedding on top of Mt. Constitution. He made our day so special and memorable and we highly recommend him for any kind of service! Best day ever!!"
