Plan and Celebrate Your Wedding With Reverend Joy

To create and officiate your wedding ceremony, one of life’s most joyous events, Rev. Gary becomes “Reverend Joy”.

When it comes to weddings, one size does not fit all.


Reverend Joy works closely with each couple (through ongoing conversations and an in-depth questionnaire) to create and officiate a wedding ceremony that is true and meaningful for them, that tells their unique story, expresses their feelings and beliefs about each other and about marriage, and is in harmony with their faith path, whether religious, spiritual or secular. Reverend Joy blends in traditions and rituals that reflect the couple’s love, joy, dreams, and growing edges for their married life together. This includes writing vows if requested. The ceremony text is reworked as needed and not finalized until the couple is totally satisfied.

Reverend Joy happily designs and performs marriage ceremonies for all loving couples—both opposite-sex and same-sex, interracial, and interethnic. He officiates weddings in all faith traditions (Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, etc.), as well as combined religious-spiritual ceremonies. He also serves inter-spiritual and mixed-faith couples, and those starting a second marriage. He works throughout Vermont, all of New England, and beyond, including destination weddings.
