Chaplain Dr. Fred W. Patterson: Knoxville, TN and surrounding areas (many beautiful mountain, or lake-side settings): Your wedding day is one of the most significant days of your life. My goal is to work with you to create a wonderful ceremony that reflects your ideas, values and beliefs. It can be simple or extravagant. The service can be officiated in formal wear (robe or tuxedo), casual clothing or any other specific attire appropriate for the occasion and location. Chaplain Patterson is non-denominational and non-judgmental. He has the greatest respect for the traditions of marriage and offers pre-marital counseling.

Flexible, prompt, & conscientious
Fred and his wife, Irene, were great to work with. Fred and Irene met with us at a Starbucks prior to the wedding for us to get to know one another. This put our nerves at ease and helped us feel more comfortable on our wedding day. Fred emailed to us the script he was using for our ceremony. He was willing to make changes to the script, so we were able to have the ceremony we wanted. He was also very flexible. We had to change the time of our outdoor wedding due to weather concerns, and he was willing to accommodate us. He promptly responded to our emails & phone calls.Sent on 11/09/2019
His wife, Irene, is very kind and helpful. She helped with music and photos during our ceremony.
We really enjoyed working with both of them.

Dr. Patterson made our wedding ceremony absolutely perfect. He was recommended by both my wedding planner and photographer as being top notch, and they were certainly telling the truth!! From the very beginning he was responsive, professional and so easy to work with. We live out of state and were able to communicate everything by email. I gave him a little background information on us as a couple & he drafted a beautiful ceremony to match what we wanted. Anything I wanted to change he was happy to work with and didn't stop until it was exactly how I wanted it. One of my main priorities for the wedding was to have a well-delivered, sweet and concise ceremony, and that was EXACTLY what we got!! Too many times I have been to weddings where the officiant was stumbling over his words, said the wrong names or seemed to have his own agenda. I had zero worries working with Dr. Patterson. I knew he would get it right and make our "I dos" special. If you are looking for an officiant, I would highly recommend him for your big day!!Sent on 01/05/2017
Chaplain Patterson is a consummate professional and is a joy to work with. He keeps the couple's vision in mind when creating a ceremony that is customized sepcifically for them. He is one fellow vendor that I never have to worry if he'll be there on time - he always is!
Chaplain Patterson is my go-to wedding officiant! He helps the bride a groom personalize the most beautiful and touching ceremonies, then performs them flawlessly. I highly recommend him!!
