VESTMENTS & ATTIRE

Many couples wish to know what Reverend Gary wears when he officiates at weddings. The following gallery is a collection of the various vestments or attire he wears at various services (weddings, baptisms, funerals, etc.). If you have a preference for your event, please ask at your initial meeting, and Reverend Gary will try to accommodate your request if the vestments or attire are appropriate for your particular event. Of course, he also has a selection of business suits, Hawaiian shirts, and other outfits that may be appropriate for your event.

The World's Happiest Couple (May 1, 1999)

Yes. Reverend Gary was once young and thin...and a very lucky man.

Kacie and Gary have been in love with each other for 20 years as of July 2017.

And for you fashion police...this was before Reverend Gary knew that tails are never worn with black tie, and that neither white nor black tie are supposed to be worn before six in the evening.  Traditional morning attire would have been a more appropriate choice for a daytime wedding.  Lady Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham, and the rest of the Downton Abbey crowd would have had a fit!

For an excellent reference on Gentlemen's Attire, read Dressing the Man - Mastering the Art of Permanent Fashion by Alan Flusser.

This is a link to a Playlist from my YouTube Channel. There's a brief welcome video from me (mostly so you can have an opportunity to hear my voice...a better video will be posted soon).  There's also a video of my good friend and colleage, Reverend Nicholas Montanino, officiating a ceremony which incorporates several optional aspects, including a Gospel Reading, the Blessing of the Hands, and a version of the Unity Wine Ceremony.

Please feel free to explore my entire YouTube Channel, although I've just started building it. It can be found by clicking the button below.
