It’s very rewarding to know that all the work I put in to creating custom wedding and vow renewal ceremonies helps create a joyous and memorable day for each couple I work with.

Reverend Meghan Gurley graciously stepped in when our original officiant had a family emergency that had her out of town on our wedding day. She immediately called us, took the time to get to know us as a couple and our vision for our wedding ceremony and make all the small details happen. She was attentive, thorough and added thoughtful touches and ideas that we hadn’t even thought of. Our ceremony went off without any problems and we felt prepared and supported. Thank you, Meghan– we could not have done it without you!

Reverend Gurley (Meghan) officiated our wedding this past October. She is simply the best.
She met with us prior and walked us through every step of the wedding ceremony. She even has a blog dedicated to explaining each phase of a wedding which we found very interesting and helpful. She helped us personalize our ceremony and had several great ideas for us to consider. The weather was iffy that day and we were planning on an outdoor wedding, but Meghan made herself available for the whole day to
accommodate for whatever the weather did. The ceremony was beautiful, special, and very memorable.
Thank you Meghan!
Wonderful officiant and counselor
Reverend Gurley was amazing! She helped us personalize our vows and make our wedding so much more special. We also did pre-marital counseling with her, which was fantastic.
Rev. Gurley was excellent!
I am so glad we were able to get her for my son’s wedding. The engaged even agreed to have her pre-marital counseling. Meghan helped them customize their vows into a very personally meaningful ceremony. My personal favorite thing about the entire evening was the “hand fasting” portion. (Old school)
Rev. Gurley was integral in making the day a beautiful experience for us all!
Rev. Meghan Gurley is wonderful! We eloped and gave her about 2 weeks notice. She responded right away, took her time to get to know us and came up with a beautiful cross cultural Indian American ceremony. She incorporated all our wishes, came dressed to the wedding in an Indian outfit and even performed a knot tying ceremony we wanted. Above all, she respected our reasons for elopement and even agreed to do another commitment ceremony for us when we’re ready to celebrate with friends and family!
The best wedding officiant!
Rev. Meghan Gurley is the best! She came to our house and met with us to create a tailor made ceremony for us. She followed up many times and was always available for questions. She was on time and was instrumental in creating a seamless and beautiful ceremony! My wedding was a lot less stressful and a lot more enjoyable because of her. I highly recommend!!
We hired Meghan for our premarital counseling and wedding ceremony, and we were very happy with both! Our premarital counseling occurred over three sessions, and each one felt useful and thorough. We were able to learn several fighting techniques, for example, that have helped us handle problems in healthier ways, and we went into our wedding ceremony feeling even more confident about our relationship. After finishing our sessions, Meghan worked with us extensively to craft the perfect mostly-secular marriage ceremony, which ended up being both beautiful and unique. I would highly recommend Meghan to anyone who is looking for someone flexible, responsive, and interesting to help them start their marriage on the right foot. We couldn’t be happier with our experience!

What an absolutely awesome officiant! Our ceremony was literally tailored to be exactly what we wanted! No matter which denomination/creed you associate with, Rev. Meghan can help! She is incredibly compassionate about her career and truly cares about the couple she is working with. Rest assured you will be in good hands on your wedding day! Thanks Rev!
Meghan was absolutely amazing to work with. From the first time we spoke with her, Meghan was extremely friendly and professional. Not only did she help us customize and build our wedding ceremony, she kept us on point the day of, helping to make sure that the whole event was going smoothly, and that everything and everyone was in place. She provided awesome suggestions when we asked for them, and helpful reminders whenever we forgot anything. Perhaps most importantly, she provided us with an ease of mind, knowing that she would handle her duties (and others) as professionally as we could possibly hope for. Highly recommended!
Lan & Daniel
Reverend Gurley was so awesome to work with! She was very sweet, accommodating and helpful. She guided us through the whole process, from license to vow writing and even helped to calm our nerves on our wedding day. I loved working with her and highly recommend her.
I’m so happy that we had Meghan perform our ceremony. She met up with us about 2 months before and went through the whole ceremony with us and we got to choose what was important to us. She helped us feel very comfortable about the process so we knew just what to expect. We felt that our ceremony was so very sweet and precious just for us . Meghan was so sweet and thoughtful and professional, she made it very memorable and special. We were very happy!!
Meghan was so amazing from the moment we met her. She was very positive and had a great demeanor. She was very easy and great to work with anything we wanted she was accommodating.
Stephanie & Brice
Rev. Gurley was truly wonderful. From the very beginning, she worked with us to create a ceremony that was uniquely ours. Instead of pushing for a cookie-cutter ceremony, she gave us options for each part of the ceremony so that it was perfect for us. She is very affordable, professional, and will go out of her way to make sure that everything is perfect. Five stars just aren’t enough.
Performed a beautiful personalized ceremony for my son’s wedding. Really cares about each couple and what they want their wedding day to be. Goes the extra mile to make the day stress free for everyone, I can’t say enough. I would highly recommend her.
5 stars. Great officiant and would recommend to anyone looking to have a personalized and beautiful wedding.
Jillian & Ryan
Rev. Gurley is amazing. From our first meeting to our ceremony she always made sure that we were comfortable and happy. She worked with us to make our ceremony reflective of us as a couple and not what others are doing or what she already has prepared. We also used her services for pre-marital counseling and after every session we felt stronger as a couple. I would recommend her to any of my family or friends, she was a truly a blessing for us.
Thank you Meghan!
My only concern during wedding planning was finding an officiant, and Reverend Meghan got rid of any concerns I had. She was easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable. She worked with us to create a non-religious ceremony that was a true representation of our personalities. We also used Rev. Meghan for premarital counseling, and I truly believe she helped better prepare us for our future. I highly recommend Rev. Meghan!
Reverend Gurley made everything so easy!! We loved that she was always early and well prepared, and she let us do our ceremony the way that we wanted to. She was able to put our minds at ease any time we got flustered or nervous. We could not have made a better choice.
I can’t say enough about Meghan. She was thoroughly committed to not only having a memorable and personal ceremony, but also to supporting our relationship. I was always (and still am) able to contact her and get a prompt response. She goes out of her way to make working with her clients as easy and fun as possible. You won’t regret working with her.
Blown Away Bride
‘Beyond I Do’ is an appropriate name for this officiant’s endeavors because every detail of the ceremony that Reverend Meghan Gurley created for us was above and beyond normal expectation.
At my wedding, the aisle blew away, the trellis fell over and the vases of roses crashed onto the tables: losing their battle with the wind. None of this mattered in the least because the wedding ceremony that Reverend Gurley performed was absolutely beautiful.
Years of education followed by training at the seminary prepared this minister to craft a unique and touching marriage ceremony that involved our guests, as well as, ourselves. Due to Reverend Gurley’s attention to detail and genuine concern for our preferences we did not just attend our ceremony we experienced our marriage.
Our ceremony was so precious that not even high winds could deter our joy.
Thanks, Reverend Gurley
Evie & Mark
We were intent on a wedding style that was both traditional and deeply personal. Meghan helped us at every step of the way, and she was flexible with us having a ceremony completely unique. We also did pre-marital counseling with Meghan. She helped us fully understand the importance of the steps we were about to take as husband and wife. Meghan coordinated our rehearsal and the ceremony professionally. In the end there wasn’t a single dry eye at the ceremony.
Vicki & Randy
Rev. Gurley did a fabulous job with our recent wedding! We had a small intimate wedding in our home and although small, she was warm, personable and attentive to every detail, making our day PERFECT! We would recommend Rev. Meghan to anyone for any size wedding!
Tomé & John
My husband and I were more interested in making our marriage legal than making our wedding special. We told Rev. Gurley we’d be content to just say our vows in her office. However, Rev. Gurley convinced us that just because we didn’t want anything fancy didn’t mean our wedding couldn’t be special. Also, she doesn’t have an office. What she does have is a wonderful personality, a warm heart and great ideas. Highly recommended!
Rev. Meghan Gurley is just simply wonderful! My now husband and I searched high and low for someone that could help us create the perfect fusion Christian-Hindu wedding and she was AMAZING. It was important to us that we didn’t diminish the importance of either religion and she helped us create a special moment that was truly representative of both of us. Our friends and fam are still telling us how special they thought it was. We are eternally grateful!
P.L. & P. K.
We were married at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta recently and Rev. Meghan Gurley was our officiant. She was a pleasure to work with, very responsive, highly organized, and offered a wide range of great options for each part of the ceremony. She was happy to customize and be creative throughout the process of planning the ceremony. We wanted to infuse West African traditions and also wanted additional personalization – all of which she accommodated. I highly recommend Rev. Gurley.
Rev. Meghan was available every time I had questions or requests. She personalized our service perfectly for us! She was a wonderful person and I will recommend her to anyone who is in need! You will make a great choice by using her!
F. & A. Vow Renewal
We originally eloped, which did not go over too well with our families. So, eleven years later, we decided to have a big party with a surprise vow renewal and Rev. Gurley was spectacular! She helped us with ideas to get the family and friends involved this time, and the vow suggestions were perfect! Everyone kept raving at how beautiful the ceremony was and complimenting Rev. Gurley, even the caterers! We highly recommend her to anyone looking to get married their way with no pressures.
Dave & Amanda
Both of us had been previously married several years prior and didn’t expect much from a wedding officiant other than a pre-fabricated ceremony. Boy were we surprised! Meghan’s experience certainly showed when we sat down to go through the ceremonial outline. She presented us with several options for each segment of the ceremony, was flexible in any changes we wanted to add and even worked with our wishes and changed the usual flow to fit with a few touches we were hoping to include (and made it work beautifully). We were very pleased with the ceremony and it was the perfect start to our new beginning. Thank you Meghan!
Tracey & Adam
Reverend Gurley was the perfect complement to our October ceremony. She took the time to meet with us over a cup of coffee in the weeks before, and she really heard what it was we wanted to create in a service. She helped us put together the words that honored our feelings for God, family, friends and each other. She is amazing! We are so happy to have found her.
Heather & Ricky
Our wedding was perfect thanks to Rev. Meghan! During the wedding planning process, Rev. Meghan was always available for all of my questions and concerns (I was one of those overly anxious brides!) She made everything easy and all about us! Highly recommended!
Cristy & Marcus
My husband and I had the best ceremony ever. I have been to plenty of weddings but nothing like ours. She definitely went beyond “I do”. She is awesome. I recommend her services. You won’t be disappointed at all.
James & Cheryl
Let me first say that the following words will pale in comparison to Rev. Gurley. What Rev. Gurley does is truly Beyond I Do… she is a guiding hand, with a wealth of knowledge who is kind, caring, energetic and is very easy to talk with and feel comfortable. When we first called Rev. Gurley she personally answered the phone in the evening hours and answered all my questions, I felt an instant comfort in speaking with her. She then spoke at length with me regarding our Wedding Ceremony and that it was about our day and it was our ceremony. She then met with both my husband and me to discuss what exactly we wanted for our ceremony. She prepared an unbelievable private ceremony and she selected a ceremony that was right in alignment with who we are as individuals and together as a couple. (She did ALL of that prior to meeting with us with only speaking to us over the phone). After meeting with us and truly going step by step, she prepared another amazing ceremony. She called weekly to check in to see how we were doing. Everyone at our wedding, who met her, gave her the same compliment, what an amazing Reverend who made our wedding perfect! We would highly recommend Rev. Gurley for your wedding.
Suparna and Vijay
Rev Meghan… thank you for making our wedding so special. Our phone conversations prior to meeting were very promising and when we met I was amazed at how much effort you had made to create the ceremony special and different by incorporating Hindu traditions in a non-religious American style wedding. Our assurance grew stronger and we added more Hindu traditions… and I don’t think any other officiant would have made so much efforts to make the ceremony so unique. Thank you for being there for us and we would strongly recommend Rev. Meghan for wedding ceremonies specially if someone wants to make it unique!
Matt & Jessica
Meghan was the prefect officiant for us and our special day. Our beliefs are non-traditional, our pieced together family is non-traditional and Meghan was able to help us create the perfect ceremony. With an open mind, an open heart and a passion for what she does she was able to walk us step by step to make sure our ceremony was truly OUR ceremony. If you aren’t looking for just a plain, cookie cutter ceremony for your special day, then I strongly suggest you use Mrs. Gurley.
Mark & Andrea
On behalf of my lovely wife and I we would like to thank you for a wonderful service with vows that touch everyone who attended. We highly recommend Rev Gurley and her services. Thank you for helping our dream become a reality.
Sarah & Michael
Rev Gurley was amazing to work with! She was very professional from the get-go & easy to work with. She took the time to listen & was open to our beliefs & ideas for the Ceremony. She uses a very basic, open ceremony outline, with her help, & by combining our ideas with some of the options she provided, we were able to create something that fit us perfectly! Our family was very happy, but above all, WE were happy. If she were in any other business than officiating weddings, we would be repeat customers for life. She is an absolute pleasure to work with & we definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. Thank you Meghan, for completing our perfect day!
Arnold & Theresa
I just want to take a few moments to say thank you so much for the wonderful job you did marrying Arnold and me! You really accommodated us and made things so easy for me! It was short, simple and sweet, just like I wanted! The vows you supplied were perfect and everyone commented on them – just beautiful! It was a genuine pleasure to meet you! Thanks again Meghan!
Something touched me about Meghan once I read her website and then after our initial phone call I knew immediately she was the one to guide us through this special time. Our ceremony was beautiful, heartfelt and completely us. Our guests all commented that it was the best ceremony they had attended and that they wanted to refer her to other friends and family. In addition to her services she genuinely cares about the couples she marries and offers her friendship, her guidance and her Ministerial services to you for as long as you need them. She has a beautiful spirit, a wonderful sense of humor and immense patience! We had somewhat of an elopement with a small number of guests but we plan to remarry next year with a big wedding and we will be calling on Ms. Meghan!
Rev. Gurley is truly an awesome human being who really knows that a wedding is about the couple and their wants and needs. She worked with us, step-by-step, through every aspect of our ceremony and always checked in with how we felt. She is amazing!
Melissa & Shawn
Meghan is incredibly responsive. We knew that we could count on her and that she would do a great job. She’s incredibly professional, creative and put us immediately at ease. Meghan is reliable and goes out of her way to personalize your wedding, which was really a priority for us. We’d highly recommend her for your wedding.
Adam & Jessica
On our first meeting with Meghan, we felt an instant comfort with her and after sitting and chatting for some time we were adamant that she was perfect for us. She was more than happy to advise us where needed but at no point would she try to hint at putting any of her own beliefs into our ceremony. She was very clear that is was OUR day and OUR ceremony. She has a vast wealth of knowledge, enthusiasm and also a great sense of humour. And she clearly loves doing this! Highly recommended.
Mrs. Gurley was wonderful. We didn’t have much time to plan, our wedding came together at the last minute, and she was extremely accommodating and affordable! The consultation was easy going, and afterward, I felt at peace. When it comes to days like this, you definitely need someone to rely on and Mrs. Gurley is that person. I absolutely recommend her.
Carlos & Gina
Meghan provided excellent service during all stages of our wedding. Extremely pleasant and very thorough. Family members on both sides were very pleased with her as well. We don’t think anyone else could have made our wedding any more perfect! Strongly recommend her for your wedding needs.
Meghan was incredible to work with throughout the whole process. She customized our ceremony from start to finish to fit our needs and wants. It was so meaningful, and she was such a pleasure to interact with. Could not recommend her more!
