  • Gerry was such a dream to work with. Kind, helpful and an incredibly positive demeanor, he put my husband and I at ease through the whole process. He was accommodating to us being out of town and really made our ceremony special. I would absolutely recommend Gerry to anyone getting married in the Greater New Orleans area. Thank you, Gerry for all you did for us!
