So thankful!

Friar Pratt was great to work with! He really understood our vision and was very respectful and understanding about our choices, especially around our wedding being mostly secular. We never felt judged but only supportive. He was professional, where he needed to be, knew how to keep us all where we needed to be, and thought of many things I never would have. I definitely recommend!

Friar Don was Great!

Friar Don was great!! He was available before the wedding to answer and help with our questions. The pre-questionnaire was thorough and we were very impressed with how he compiled our answers and fit them in the ceremony to make sure it was personalized and unique to us. Would highly recommend due to his professionalism, punctuality, and demeanor.

Friar Don did a great job. We were about 700 miles away and were about to complete everything online and by Skype. The ceremony was made special for us. It was performed lakeside at Lake Norman, NC. It couldn't have been better. I would recommend Friar Don for anyone getting married.
