About Gail Olberg

I get to do what I love every day -- marry people!  It would be my pleasure to serve as your Marriage Officiant and be part of your unique happily ever-after story.

I marry couples in every size wedding throughout Virginia for same-day, simple elopements to grand affairs, at backyard home weddings and local parks to Theatres, Historic Estates, and event venues of every type and style and I write and tailor ceremonies for each couple I marry. I only marry couples in Virginia, but my reputation travels far and wide. Since you don’t have to be a resident of the Commonwealth to get married in Virginia, couples come to me from every corner of the United States including, Washington State, New Mexico, Hawaii, and Texas, to Officiate their nuptials, and I am often booked a year and more in advance to the event date. 

I would love to be the Officiant to marry you as well. I would like to visit with you to get better acquainted and discuss your preferences and particulars for your wedding day. I invite you to call me for a convenient phone consultation at 804-994-5940 to get acquainted and discuss particulars for your wedding day. I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon. 

Be it a simple intimate exchange of vows, or grand display with more than 300 guests, a traditional or non-traditional ceremony, I work with you to create what you and your fiance want for your wedding day. It would be my pleasure to serve as your Officiant and create a special ceremony for you, so call today for your consultation!

I get to do what I love every day…Marry people. I receive 5 star reviews for the ceremonies and services I provide; and have received the Couples Choice Award for two consecutive years; ranking among the top 4% of Officiants. It’s your wedding, and just like everything else on your special day, I believe your ceremony should be more than just a necessary part of your day. It should be a memorable part of your day and reflect your style. So I write ceremonies specific to each couple I marry and I offer free consultation either by phone or in-person to get better acquainted and discuss what you would like to include, or not include, to aide in creating a ceremony just for you. I'm happy to personalize your ceremony by including such items as; sentiments dear to you, remembrances of loved ones, your choice of poems/readings/songs, unity ceremonies, jumping the broom and so on. From simple elopements and small intimate weddings, to grand events with over 300 guests; I perform civil and non-denominational ceremonies throughout Virginia. Whether it be a back yard venue, park, farm field, historic mansion or grand plantation; it is always my pleasure to serve as your Marriage Officiant. I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you soon and hopefully serve as your Officiant on your Wedding Day.


I enjoy everything about being a Marriage Officiant. I love meeting the couples who engage me to perform their ceremony, and often stay in contact with many of my couples well after their special day. I have been blessed to be married for over 25 years to the best mate I feel the Lord could have paired me with and truly enjoy the honor of bringing other couples with love in their hearts together to experience the same blessing through the union of marriage.
