    Pick fred!

    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.

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!
