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.

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.

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!

We had a great experience using Wedding Ceremonies by Jeff as our wedding officiant on August 12th, 2017 and for our pre-marital counseling. Jeff is a very friendly person and is easy to work with. When we first met him, we ended up talking with him for about two hours about the wedding and just getting to know each other. He has a good sense of humor and is open and knowledgeable about different cultures, which was nice since my husband is from the Netherlands. Jeff has many different types of ceremonies to choose from (religious, non-religious, traditional, contemporary, etc.), and he allowed us to customize our ceremony by combining pieces from multiple ceremonies to make ours exactly how we wanted it. He responded positively when we told him we wanted to do a live-stream video of our ceremony to my husband’s family and friends overseas that could not be there. Jeff also did pre-marital counseling with us using the Prepare-Enrich program, and we enjoyed working with him during two extended sessions instead of the four standard sessions. We live about two hours away from Northern Virginia, so it was difficult for us to come up to the area with both of us being in graduate school, so he was able to accommodate our situation. He was great at our wedding ceremony and was interactive with the guests. Everything turned out beautifully! The guests loved how he was able to make the ceremony very special and unique. We would recommend Jeff to anyone looking for a wedding officiant and/or pre-marital counselor!

Jeff was deeply instrumental in creating a perfect wedding day. From our initial meeting, which lasted close to two hours because he was so invested in understanding us as a couple, we felt at ease placing our ceremony in his hands. He has wide-ranging knowledge about various cultural and religious traditions, and consequently, was able to help us design a ceremony that conformed to our religious and cultural backgrounds, representing our diversity as a couple. Additionally, he guided us as we navigated a way to include my stepson in our ceremony, providing suggestions (which included personal vows I wrote to my stepson, as well as a small gift that I gave him as a token of our newly formed bond), that were thoughtful, loving, and simply stated: perfect. Jeff is articulate, sensitive, witty, and has an incredible sense of humor, all qualities that were evident during our wedding ceremony. Numerous guests commented on Jeff delivering THE most sweet and personal wedding ceremony they had ever attended. My husband and I MORE than highly recommend Jeff's services.

Outstanding officiant. Great voice, great presence, and demonstrated an ability to properly pronounce a couple Chinese names during ceremony! Had some good suggestions just prior to ceremony to help make things go smoother.
