    Best Officiant Ever.

    Where to begin? Fred may have been the most unexpectedly amazing part of this wedding.

    First, we live in Florida so were unable to meet him in person--he was easy to reach and we had a Skype conversation. We chose Fred because he took the time to get to know us and gave us so many options for the wedding ceremony. Many other vendors sent us 1-2 sample ceremonies that were your typical, run of the mill, ceremony. Fred shared so many different options and we ended up doing a handfasting ceremony which I had not heard of until he introduced it us.

    Fred insisted we have a rehearsal since we have 14 people in the wedding party--a very good decision. It's a chatty group but he really took charge and made my life easy. At the dinner, he went so far as to organize the speeches and put champagne at our sears--none of which were his responsibility!

    The wedding ceremony was perfect and he gave a little story about Alex and I which personalized the moment. He also had bobby pins to keep my veil intact. At the reception, Fred continued to help us--he was like another wedding coordinator! Someone spilt on the dance floor and he stood there making sure no one slipped. Business aside, he was social and fun and felt like part of the group--everyone loved him!

    You Can Count on Fred!

    Fred was highly recommended by our venue The Heritage Hotel to be our officiant! My husband and I truly lucked out and found a gem! Fred was simply amazing! He walked us through all the options for our ceremony and was always available to answer our questions! He checked in regularly as well. We did not realize all the responsibilities that the officiant is responsible for a wedding! With Fred, we did not have to worry about one thing! He was extremely professional and prepared! Fred has over 30 years of experience and you can trust that your special day with be magical! You can count on Fred!

    Be Wed By Fred's reply:

    Britt & Gary, it was so much fun getting to know the 2 of you and crafting your custom ceremony. Your family and friends were a delight, although I did think your Maid of Honor was going to pass out during the rehearsal! Glad she was better by your big day. :-)
    Looking forward to hearing about your 10, and 25 year anniversaries!
    Warm regards,
    Fred

    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!
