Great JP! We love Fred!
Fred was a wonderful JP! He spent time getting to know us to make sure our day was perfect and the ceremony was totally customized to fit our style. His ceremony suggestions were great! We got to pick all the elements. We also did premarital counseling with him too. Definitely recommend! Very organized and responsive!Sent on 10/30/2020

Married 10/10/20. The moment we met Fred we just knew that we wanted him to officiate our wedding! With 2020 being the year it's been he made sure that our day would still be special for us even though it wasn't what we originally planned for. That alone made everything easier and stress free. So much so that we booked him for our "Bigger" day next year! We absolutely loved working with Fred and HIGHLY recommend him to others for their special day.Sent on 10/25/2020

The best we could have asked for
Fred was more than we could have asked for, he was fully supportive and knowledgeable throughout the planning process. He is the kindest man you could ever have for your wedding and he was not just an officiant but a major part of our union. We had our wedding at Gillette Castle in Lyme CT which has connections to Sherlock Holmes and Fred came to the occasion in full Holmes garb which was very special. The weather was not accommodating nor were the staff at the venue and Fred made the best out of it and made it all the more special because of that. If you get the chance 100% use this man for your wedding, I promise you.Sent on 12/31/2020
We recently played music for a wedding Fred officiated: It stands out as being one of the most personal, spontaneous and moving ceremonies of the HUNDREDS we've seen. With depth and humor, Fred's presentation gave everyone in attendance a vibrant sense of what made this couple unique!
