Meet

Paloma Gerlecz

 

I Pronounce You is proud to introduce Paloma Gerlecz. Paloma is joining the I Pronounce You team of officiants. You’ll know her by her ready smile and spirit of excitement.

Paloma is a Texan, through and through. Born in Brownsville and grew up in Buda, Paloma enjoyed all the privileges of being the baby of the family and is still very close with her two sisters.

Paloma and Cody were married last year by Nancy Woods; together they have two fur babies. Her experience of planning her own wedding and the stress of dealing with all the vendors gives her instant credibility with brides. She has been where you are now. She really understands!

On being your officiant, Paloma says, “I will make sure we have a great connection and I will earn your confidence. I want you to know that I will make sure your ceremony is everything that you want it to be; you can count on me. I’m looking forward to getting acquainted and planning with you!”

Let’s Chat!
