    Fred is simply amazing

    Fred was truly amazing! He is a genuine, kind and caring man who enjoys bring families together. He also helped keep our wedding party and family organized by guiding us through the rehearsal and wedding day. Fred was truly amazing and helped make our day go off without a hitch.

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!
