Wedding Officiant in 22301

My name is Jeff Maszal and I have officiated wedding ceremonies for couples of almost every faith, race, and culture.

Each wedding is customized to meet your needs. I take pride in listening to you and working with you to create a ceremony that reflects who you are, what you want, and what your faith, family, and culture may request or require. An Ordained Minister, in good standing (and a former management consultant), I officiate traditional, contemporary, religious (Christian, etc), non-denominational, spiritual, interfaith, cross-cultural, and secular/non-religious ceremonies. Religious and interfaith ceremonies that I have officiated/co-officiated include those from the Jewish, Buddhist, Islamic, Hindu, Bahá'í, Confucianism, and Taoist faiths. I have incorporated cultural traditions from most part of the world.   I’m licensed to officiate in Virginia, Washington D.C., and Virginia.

Jeff officiated our wedding and also provided some counseling. He was outstanding in all respects. On wedding day, Jeff is totally unflappable and has a confidence and warmth that rubs off on everyone. Jeff has many dozens of outstanding reviews and for good reason. He is a truly outstanding officiant and we would recommend him highly to anyone. Thank you again Jeff!!

Jeff was amazing conducting our ceremony. He guided us throughout the whole thing, and had it all handled. His stage presence was wonderful - he is so good with words. He was incredibly flexible and always immediately responded to all my emails. He was so on it. He has performed a lot of ceremonies, and is well versed in many different types of ceremonies to include various cultural traditions. My husband is Armenian and although we didn't put much Armenian wedding tradition into our ceremony, Jeff was ready to do whatever we wanted. He had ample templates for us to read through and ideas to personalize our ceremony, which was a huge help, and took all of our ideas and created such a beautiful flow to the ceremony. He guided our actions every step of the way during the ceremony and even had a handkerchief for me to use as I started to cry. He was wonderful, and we got so many compliments on how great our officiant was. We HIGHLY recommend. (Not to mention, he is one of the very few who are actually legally able to marry people in Virginia, as they have strict laws about this!) Thank you Jeff for all you did!!!

The officiant was one of the last details we booked before our wedding (3 weeks out), not knowing it should have been one of the first things we looked to do. Finding working with Jeff so close to our wedding date was a wonderful experience. Jeff took the time to have multiple conversations with me (the bride), and to meet with me and my fiancé before the ceremony. Jeff provided us with many different ceremony options, personalizing the one we liked best. We had a small, intimate wedding, and Jeff walked us through the whole thing without a rehearsal. I only wish we had found him sooner! Thanks Jeff!!

My husband and I planned our very small, intimate wedding ceremony in only 2.5 months. One of the best decisions we made was working with Jeff! He was very responsive and accommodating and even helped us find our wedding venue. Our initial meeting with Jeff was great. He is very friendly and open to learning about us as a couple and exactly what kind of ceremony we wanted. The day of the wedding, Jeff was wonderful! He made sure we both knew what to expect and what to do, and had a way of putting everyone at ease. The ceremony was beautiful and many guests commented on how great Jeff was and how much they enjoyed the ceremony. He genuinely cares and wants to make sure your day is personal and meaningful to you both. He was really helpful even after the wedding, too, taking care of submitting our marriage license and offering guidance as to how to request certified copies. We highly recommend Jeff!

Jeff did a wonderful job officiating our ceremony. We appreciated the time he took to get to know us at our initial meeting and he incorporated some of the personal details from that meeting into our ceremony. I hadn't been to many outdoor weddings so at first planning a ceremony seemed to be a major undertaking. Jeff's templates and thoughtful approach made crafting our final ceremony rewarding and personal. He has a number of practical pointers that ensured that we were prepared for all the various outdoor elements. We felt so comfortable with Jeff and his kind demeanor and professionalism ensured a very special ceremony for us.

Jeff was great! We met with him several months before our ceremony to get to know each other and discuss what we wanted. Jeff then provided several resources (scripts, readings, etc.) to help us customize our ceremony. Unfortunately, Jeff had a professional obligation came up for our wedding day, but he arranged for his colleague John to be our officiant. We met a couple weeks before the wedding to review the script for our ceremony, get acquainted with John, and tie up loose ends. The ceremony was beautiful, and we're thankful to both Jeff and John for all of their help in making the day ours.

We are so happy that Jeff was our officiant. We met Jeff over a year before our wedding, and not only did he provide amazing services for the ceremony, he provided pre-marital counseling sessions for us that were invaluable. We were blending families, and other counselors we previously went to could not quite grasp what we needed. Jeff stepped in and during our first session made us feel calmer, and provided us tools that we still use today. Jeff was available 24/7, whenever we needed sometime to listen. He was always responsive and patient. And the day of the wedding, Jeff was amazing. Jeff personalized our ceremony for us, and made it very memorable. All of our guests commented on Jeff's amazing personality and wonderful speaking voice. Jeff is an officiant who will take the time to get to know you and perform a ceremony that is perfect and special in every way. Jeff is a true professional and it was an honor to have him perform our ceremony.

Jeff Maszal is a class act. He figuratively (and sometimes literally) held our hands from the initial inquiry months in advance to a final meeting minutes before our ceremony --all the while providing sage guidance and thoughtful suggestions. The ceremony itself was just what we wanted and the end result is not only a happy marriage but also an unreserved endorsement of Jeff. We additionally found Jeff to be a useful resource for recommendations of other wedding service providers like the photographer and musician, etc.

Jeff provided an unique perspective and offered a plethora of experience when dealing with weddings . Providing us with different options on how we can proceed with the ceremony made the decision making process 10 times easier . I would highly recommend Jeff for any other ceremony . Words alone cannot express our deep gratitude for Jeff making our day a little extra special.

Jeff was a fabulous officiant for our wedding day! Not only is he a gifted public speaker, he went above and beyond to make sure our ceremony went off without a hitch. He met with us in person several times to discuss the big day, was very responsive, listened to any concerns we had and provided guidance, and did everything in his power to ensure we had the best day of our lives. He even made sure the sun wouldn't be in my eyes during the ceremony, helped us plan the processional and seating, and sent me instructions on how to change my name afterwards :) He has so many templates and recommendations to make your ceremony as personal and customized as you'd like. We highly recommend Jeff!
