Meet Our Wedding Pros | Wedding Officiant Phil Gallagher

Business Description, services provided, what is your specialty?

I enjoy officiating weddings of all shapes and sizes : ) I consider it a privilege to work closely with couples using my creative energy to craft a wedding script that truly reflects their heart and personality. We’ll laugh and connect throughout the process, and on the day of, we’ll fully embrace the celebration at hand. My sweet spot is being outdoors and drawing attention to the depth and meaning of the moment.

Who are your clients?

My clients are fun, stylish and ridiculously in love. They tend to describe themselves as being spiritual but not “religious” and appreciate the backdrop of nature. Through I mainly officiate weddings in Colorado, I would certainly love to travel more… hint, hint.

When and Why did you start your business?

I began my business officiating for friends and family, and then the word spread. I enjoyed officiating so much that my wife and I launched my services online and through local venues and vendors. I loved it back then, and I love it even more now. Most often I can’t believe that I get to do this!

What or Who inspires you?

The energy that surrounds people in love along with friend and families celebrating together is inspirational for me. I always return home with a renewed sense of passion for life and to be enjoy my crazy 3 boys and my amazing wife.

Do you have any advice for newly engaged couples?

My advice for newly engaged couples is to embrace your wedding story… all of it. Plan A is good, but Plan B (which almost always happens) is even better. It’s YOUR story, and at the end of the day, you’ll be married : )

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

My favorite part about a wedding is hearing personal vows. When the bride and groom write each other promises from their hearts, they genuinely come up with the best stuff. I never get tired of that.
