"My husband and I had the honor of being married by Todd Gray on 9/17/2016. At the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia. As most brides do I interviewed so many people for our special day. We were so worried that our ceremony would feel cold since neither of us had a pastor of our own (we even interviewed close family members pastors to no avail) But the very second I spoke to Todd I just got a warm feeling and I knew he would be perfect, his voice is so warm and friendly! He offered us so many options of how to go about the ceremony and the wordings and accommodated us in things we wanted to do during the ceremony. We wanted a ceremony that was under 30 minutes yet touched on faith, love and family and we got exactly what we could have ever imagined and more. He was extremely professional and I would highly refer him! You will not be disappointed! Mr. & Mrs. Tyler Murrell"

A Genuine, First-Class Officiant

"We loved working with Todd. He made us comfortable with the planning process from the start. Todd has a reassuring confidence that brought us calm and happiness (both building up to and during the day of the wedding ceremony). Most importantly, Todd made our ceremony very special - he is a genuine, first class human being"

Todd is the best in WV!

"Todd made such a wonderful add on to our ceremony. The words that he used during the ceremony were so touching and the personalization he offered to us was top notch! He spoke eloquently and with just the right tone so everyone could hear at our outdoor ceremony. Most of our guests have told us that we had the most beautiful ceremony that they have ever been to. We can thank Todd Gray for making it such a special experience for everyone. I would recommend him to any bride!"

"Todd was the perfect officiant for our small elopement. We’re from Indiana but knew we wanted to get married in the WV mountains. After finding Todd’s website, we contacted him and talked about what we were envisioning. He gave us numerous hiking trail options to check out for our mountainside elopement and really made our jobs so much easier. Todd has so much experience and had great ideas for our ceremony and modified everything to make it super personal for us. Would definitely recommend him!!"

"The experience we had using Todd as our officiant was nothing but amazing. He was kind enough to do our micro wedding at Adventures on the Gorge in short notice on my grandparents 69th wedding anniversary. But also put together a beautiful ceremony, also honoring our loved ones! He was always there answering our questions and responded to our emails very appropriately. We would highly recommend him to anyone who was in need for an officiant for their big day!"

Made Our Special Day Perfect

"Todd is located in WV, but he was more than happy to make the drive to Chesterfield, VA to officiate our wedding. Todd provided guidance with our ceremony structure and vows. He also had excellent communication, making sure we always felt accommodated and had all of our questions answered. Our wedding day did not go as originally planned because of the pandemic, with only 10 people being able to attend, but Todd truly made our wedding feel whole and special. We could not have asked for a better officiant. We highly recommend Todd."

Amazing Service!

"Todd was professional, punctual, courteous, thorough, and knowledgeable; along with having a wonderful personality which created a relaxed atmosphere for everyone involved. I would highly recommend Todd to ensure your special day is as you dream.

He effectively communicated with us throughout the process and allowed us to tailor our vows and ceremony well in advance of the big day. He walked us through the rehearsal and brought up items that we had not even thought about - due to his experience.

I could not have entrusted my wedding day with a better pastor and am very thankful that we found him online. Thank you Todd"

Wonderful officiant for any wedding!

"Todd Gray was a godsend for our wedding. We found him on short notice, and he was so accommodating, easy to work with and incredibly knowledgeable about how a wedding should work. If it weren't for him, our wedding would've been a nightmare to organize. He made sure everything went smoothly and that everyone knew exactly how the ceremony would proceed. He helped us create a beautiful ceremony that went with everything we had dreamed for our wedding and our marriage as a whole. If you are looking for an affordable, amazing officiant, then look no further! We could not thank, nor recommend, Mr. Gray enough"

"Todd performed our elopement ceremony! I couldn't have found anyone better. He was amazing, and answered all my questions promptly. We eloped in another state so he walked us through the rules for a marriage license in the state of WV. He even hiked a trail with us 1.5 miles out. He was absolutely wonderful."

First Class A+++

"We hired Todd to officiate our wedding on October 26, 2018. We are from out of state and were very nervous to have someone marry us that we had never met before. Todd was an absolute pleasure to work with and we could not have asked for anything more. Todd was able to make the few hour drive to be at our rehearsal which greatly put us at ease and we would definitely recommend this. We really enjoyed that we worked with Todd to write out the entire ceremony from start to finish so we both knew exactly what would be said. Todd will customize any ceremony to your needs and we appreciated that we could customize our ceremony to us. We are so happy with our choice to hire Todd. Todd was always professional, on time, and communicated well. we had a small wedding (40 people) outside on a deck and Todd's voice carried well and he articulated well. Thank you for making this process so easy for us and for making our wedding so special."

Kind and Caring Officiant - Highly Recommend

"My now-husband and I happily hired Todd to officiate our September 2018 wedding at J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works in Charleston, WV. When we were searching for an officiant, we lived in Virginia (6.5 hours away), so finding wedding vendors was a little challenging, but Todd took my call, answered my questions, and quickly assured me we were in good hands.

From the moment we booked him, Todd was very communicative and cooperative. He asked us about who we were as individuals, who we were as a couple, and what our wedding day would be like, which made us feel like he truly cared about providing us with a unique experience.

He emailed us examples of how our ceremony and vows could look and sound like, and he was flexible about changing/removing certain language from his script, i.e. I wanted him to say "Erin, you may kiss your groom" versus "Doyle, you may kiss your bride." He was also super receptive to our desire to keep our ceremony short and sweet.

He arrived in Charleston early to coordinate and organize our wedding rehearsal, which went quickly and smoothly, and he was a kind and caring presence on our wedding day. We had multiple guests comment on how gracious and friendly he was"

"I knew from the moment we got engaged that if available Todd was the one we would be using! We host weddings at our venue and had several but Todd always stuck out. So very professional and can include multiple requests with ease and efficacy. Knows weddings inside and out and I never doubted anything he did for a moment. When you are stressing over everything and anything wedding Todd will not be one of them!"

"Todd was absolutely fantastic! He was extremely friendly, responsive, and flexible in choosing the ceremony that was right for us. He was also very respectful of our preference to have a completely non-religous ceremony and did not push his views or beliefs onto us at all. He has had a ton of experience and really helped both myself and my bride feel comfortable throughout the entire process. Cannot recommend him enough!"

"It’s hard to find just the right words for Todd. In one word, fantastic! He was the perfect fit for us right from the beginning. He sent us options for the service that fit our story completely, which made it easy for us to convey to our guests. We had a small, private ceremony with our closest loved ones who could make the trip and they too really liked Todd. There were unexpected below-freezing temps and lots of snow! Todd made the trip and stayed with us afterward for photos without one complaint or rushing. We can assure you, you want this guy for your special day!"

"It took months and months of discussion for my fiance and I to decide on a wedding officiant. We knew we wanted a religious ceremony, but we wanted it to take place at our chosen venue. We wanted to find someone who was religious without being judgmental or proselytizing in any way. Mostly, we wanted someone that would make the two of us as well as our conjoining families happy. We had our quandaries with many of the other officiants in the region, but when we met Todd, we knew that we had found the right person. Todd has officiated hundreds of weddings for all different kinds of couples, and he still ensures that each and every bit of the ceremony is exactly what the couple wants. He is thorough in the ceremony planning, and he is an all-around nice guy. We invited him to stay during the reception portion of our wedding, and he was a huge hit with our families! Our parents and grandparents are still talking about what a pleasure it was to meet Todd, and we could not have chosen a better person to officiate our wedding. We are so happy to have met him and hope to continue communication with him for many years to come. Thank you, Todd!!"

"My now husband and I hadn't really been in church in a long time, so we felt guilty to ask a traditional preacher to marry us. I found Todd online and spoke with him on the phone and knew he was perfect for us! He was so laid back and professional, and his wife helped with telling our bridal party when to walk, which was great! He is so genuine and will do anything to make your ceremony exactly how you want it. Would recommend to anyone looking for an officiant!"

He had great ideas to incorporate my step children and grandchildren in the ceremony, as well as my nieces and nephew, and other family members. He was always available to answer any questions I had about the ceremony, and I had several. We have bragged about Todd to all our friends and family. He was instrumental in making our day so wonderful!"

"We decided to elope to a small town in Virginia to be married. We found Mr. Gray online, and words cannot express how pleased we were with the service. He was prompt, professional and most importantly, kind and sincere. He did a beautiful job. We had chosen a location sort of off the beaten path (Sinking Creek Bridge), and i sent him directions and he found and joined us in this remote location. Very very pleased with Mr Gray."
