Didier Gincig, Wedding Officiant

"Didier was the perfect officiant for our wedding and we are so happy we picked him! He helped to make our wedding day perfect! He is very understanding and in-tune with how we wanted to put together our ceremony. We both appreciated Didier's calm and warm personality. We loved every minute and were so happy with how our ceremony was put together and how flexible he was with us up to and including our wedding day. Didier is truly passionate about what he does and he honestly cares about making your wedding day special and memorable. We would recommend him to anyone!"



Orcas Island, San Juan Island, Lopez Island, Shaw Island are great wedding destination islands. 

"Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding and for the beautiful ceremony you created. We can't tell you how much we appreciate the time you took to get to know us and make our ceremony personal and meaningful. It was a pleasure working with you through the whole process of planning our wedding. " 


How do you imagine your wedding ceremony?

It is an honor and a pleasure to help create a wedding ceremony to start your marriage on a spectacular note. How can I help your dreams come true? In a relaxed, stress-free atmosphere, let's create a ceremony that will be just as you want it to be.

  • Celebrating your unique relationship with a personalized, meaningful, relaxed, ceremony in the San Juan Islands (and beyond).
  • Traditional and non-traditional
  • Flexible

"Didier was who were were hoping for. Not only does he have the heart behind the true meaning of what a wedding should be he truly cares and is passionate about his work. Thank you Didier for spreading the love through your work. It is a work of art."


The Process

  • You can be involved in the creation of the ceremony as much or as little as you want to be.
  • You have options for themes and sequence of the ceremony, so your ceremony will be just as you like it and will reach the hearts of all your guests. 
  • Your ceremony will be centered around what you admire and appreciate about each other, how you enjoy sharing your time together, religious or spiritual elements, and themes that are important to you as a couple.
  • A rehearsal is optional. It can help everyone feel at ease and valued in their role at the wedding.
  • I love meeting children, elders, family, and friends, knowing how important a wedding day is in people’s lives. 
  • It is a happy day when couples and guests of the wedding couple shake my hand or give me a hug and offer kind words for the ceremony. 
  • Any size wedding in an intimate setting.

“When we love, the miracle happens: that which may have been motivated by selfishness and the assumption or desire that things must go just as you wish them to — that element simply steps aside, and you have another, nobler reason to exist – the happiness and well-being of your beloved. Compromise becomes a pleasure.”
