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

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!

Todd Gray was an amazing officiant. We felt very comfortable with him and he made our wedding very special. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone to officiate their wedding in the WV/VA area. He is truly top notch!

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!

Todd made everything easy and enjoyable. He was able to speak loud enough for everyone to hear the ceremony. He was amazingly accommodating and willing to say whatever my husband and I requested while helping give other ideas. Very sweet, enthusiastic and helpful!!

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!"

"My husband and I have to say Todd was great! When we first contacted him, I had just recently had knee surgery and he met with us at our home! 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."

"Todd was wonderful! My husband and I were having difficulty finding a pastor that would marry us do to it being a second marriage for us both. Todd had no problems with this. He was very open to trying new things, such as adding a few Jewish things. I would totally recommend him to anyone needing an officiant! "

"Being from out of state, it was a tough decision for us to choose the right officiant for our wedding. Are we ever glad that we choose Todd to perform our ceremony. Todd did an amazing job at keeping in touch with us before the wedding and answered any questions we had. He worked with us in any way possible to make our day that much more special. The ceremony Todd gave was absolutely wonderful. We would highly recommend Todd to anybody looking for a trustworthy, compassionate, and all the way around great wedding officiant."

I met Todd and his wife Cheryl at a couple bridal shows and kept his information. My husband and I decided to sit down one on one with Todd and give him a chance. That was the best decision we could have ever made. Todd made it so easy and walked us through step by step. Our biggest fear had to be the vows. He made it so easy and fun considering my husband busted out laughing as soon as he had to repeat after Todd. Todd went along with the laughter and repeated the words again. We would recommend Todd in a heartbeat. His wife is also very knowledgeable and they make a great team. Todd did a wonderful job for us and took a load of stress off of us. Any couple looking for an officiant need to give Todd and his wife a chance. They make a great team. Best decision we ever made.

"Amazing basically sums up our experience with Todd as our wedding officiant! My husband and I come from different religious and cultural backgrounds and we were at a loss trying to find someone to marry us in an outdoor setting that would combine both of our backgrounds. Our venue was not close to home, so without anyone local we looked to weddingwire to find a nearby officiant. I am so so glad we found Todd. He instantly made me feel better about my concerns for the ceremony, and worked with us every step of the way. Because we live so far from our venue we didn't have a chance to meet with Todd before the ceremony, but he talked with us multiple times on the phone, and truly listened to what we were envisioning for the big day. I communicated with Todd via email and phone throughout the summer leading up to the wedding and he was always a kind and calming presence in the wedding planning experience. He incorporated all of our requests into the ceremony and he created something truly beautiful. Wedding guests still tell me it was the best ceremony they ever attended. Even though we hadn't met in person before, when he arrived at the rehearsal he felt like someone we already knew and he did a perfect job of pulling together the ceremony rehearsal in what was turning into a rather chaotic environment. Our wedding would not have been the same experience without him and I would recommend him to absolutely anyone. Thanks Todd for giving us the best wedding, we are forever grateful."

"Words can't really express how wonderful Todd is....we adore him! He made our pre-wedding preparations so easy and kept in touch in the months, weeks and days prior to our wedding date. He personalized our entire ceremony and all our guests complimented on what a great job he did, not just with the words but also with his presentation. Todd is extremely genuine in wanting your wedding experience to be meaningful. He will take time to get to know your wants for your entire ceremony and will do everything in his power to make it exactly that. He's so personable that it feels like he is a part of our family!"

"Todd was amazing! He helped us plan the perfect day! From the first time we talked with him we were comfortable that we had found the right person to plan our ceremony. He provided plenty of unique suggestions to fit our situation and spent time in the evenings talking to us to incorporate all the things we wanted to do. The are so many stressful things putting a wedding together but Todd made this the easiest part, great job!"

Todd was a joy to work with. He truly works hard to make your big day special! He always responds to emails almost immediately and answers any questions you may have! His experience in the wedding industry helps because he's able to give you guidance..for example: we thought about having a unity candle ceremony but Todd suggested that since it would be day light and outdoors we wouldn't see the candle in pictures and the wind may blow it out. He instead suggested a unity cross ceremony (which we did) and it was gorgeous! Todd also works hard to personalize your ceremony! He does everything from religious to non religious ceremonies, and civil unions! Also he answered emails after our wedding about the wedding license (right after he had surgery and was in the hospital)! He didn't have to respond so promptly but he did! Todd is a wonderful person and a great officiant! I highly recommend using Todd and your officiant!

Words cannot express how great of a job Todd did for us. His professionalism is remarkable. Todd's number one priority was making the wedding have our personality and he nailed it. My wife and I had so many people compliment on what a wonderful job he did and several people state it was the best ceremony they have witnessed. Todd is very flexible, responsive and just awesome to work with. The only reason I gave him 5 stars is because 10 was not an option. It was a privilege to have Todd officiate our wedding and we will forever be grateful to him for a wonderful job.

"My wife and I did an out of town, semi 'destination' wedding in West Virginia. We live about 5 hours away in Virginia. We searched around and found Todd and did some research regarding his services. Shortly thereafter we reached out to him about doing our ceremony and had then chatted on the phone about what we were doing, the type of feel we were going for and he was very gracious and easy to work with. He listened to our needs, made minor suggestions based on his experience and we had a draft of our ceremony very quickly that was almost perfect the first time. We had some minor changes but he was very accommodating and flexible. He showed up on time, was professional, easy going and easy to talk to. Though we had only chatted on the phone and via email, it felt as though we had known each other for some time and had been planning this event for years. Ceremony was perfect, no hiccups at all! Highly recommended!"

"My husband and I planned a full sized wedding in 2 months. We were scrambling to find someone of quality to perform our ceremony, and decided to go with Todd Gray. He was wonderful! His prices were extremely reasonable, he sent us a draft of the ceremony so that we could change anything that we wanted, took special requests, and was always very prompt in replying to us (which is extremely important when you are in such a time crunch). Todd did a fantastic job at our wedding. It wasn't the kind of wedding where people are bored and falling asleep (we all know what that's like), it was very beautifully written and executed. We got numerous compliments on Todd and the ceremony from our guests, and we loved every word that he said. He was so easy to work with and obliged to every request we had. I would 100% recommend him to friends, family, and complete strangers. We never regretted our decision to have him be such a huge part of our wedding!"

"Todd Gray was our Wedding Officiant in July of 2014. When choosing someone to play such an important role in your wedding day, it's hard to go with a complete stranger, but Todd was perfect. We emailed back and forth a few times after meeting at a Bridal Gala, and eventually met at Starbucks to go over the actual script of the ceremony. From the moment we sat down, it was like meeting up with an old friend. He made us feel so comfortable and eased any nerves we had moving closer to the big day. Not only did he perform a beautiful ceremony, he stuck around for the reception and said grace before dinner. He also came to the rehearsal and walked us through a typical ceremony, which was very helpful because we did not have a wedding planner. I would recommend Todd Gray to anyone that was looking for a Wedding Officiant. He was easy going, friendly, and professional. Thanks again, Todd"

"My husband and I really feel lucky to have found Todd Gray to perform our wedding ceremony. We are a non religious couple and contacted him three months prior to our wedding date. We were unable to meet in person prior to the wedding because of the distance but he was completely informative about his ideas and I made us completely comfortable about the entire planning process. Mr. Gray emailed us the entire wedding ceremony he had written over a month in advance for our approval and I did not once question if he was going to cancel or simply not show up on our special day. Anyone that chooses Mr. Todd Gray as their wedding officiant will not regret it. He did an amazing job and after the wedding my mother said he was the perfect choice."

"Todd met us for dinner to review what we wanted in the wedding ceremony and then made multiple drafts of the ceremony to make sure he got it right. I was worried about logistics because not only did we get married on my parents' farm in Milton, WV, I was planning the entire thing as a DIY wedding from Michigan! Todd was great. Everyone at the wedding liked him, he was willing to travel, and he even came down for the rehearsal dinner to make sure he knew how to get to the farm. We wanted a low-key, casual wedding (it was outdoor) and that's exactly what we got. I'm a sucker for keep sakes so we did a sand ceremony and afterward Todd gave us a copy of the ceremony in a nice binder to keep as well. We had a great time. Thank you Todd!"

We had some unexpected problems come up but Todd rolled with it and made changes as he needed. It was a very memorable day and he just made it better for us.

“We had our wedding at Pipestem State Park at the Mountain Lodge. He was amazing and so incredibly friendly. He was perfect on our perfect day. Overlooking the river, the scenery was beautiful and the ceremony priceless. We are from Ohio and if we were local, there is no doubt we would be in his congregation.”
