The best! We were SO happy with our day!
We got married just about a week ago now and we’re SO happy with how our whole day went, especially with Rev. Frank. We decided to go through the pre marriage prep with him which we found very helpful and gave us a chance to grow closer not only with each other as a couple but with the man who would marry us. Rev. Frank was so kind, gentle, and accommodating from the start. He really listened to us and where we were at. As a couple, we are not religious, but some parts of our family are. We are a couple who loves the outdoors and married in a casual outdoor venue. Rev. Frank took each piece of our relationship and venue and made our ceremony our own. We got so many compliments on how the ceremony ran - even though it drizzled with rain through a short part. Rev. Frank made a point to talk to each of our parents, grandparents, and friends to really make everyone feel included. I would recommend reverend frank again and again. We are so happy he was there to lead us through our most special day!Sent on 09/29/2019

Love and Affection for Reverend Doctor Frank Nelson
My husband, George, and I want to express our sincere gratitude for all of the gifts that you have given to our daughter, Marisa, and to her new husband, Troy. You have given them the gifts of your time, your patience, your love and kindness, your counseling and guidance, your beautifully carved heart and pen, and your heartfelt, loving words during the wedding ceremony. George and I have had countless guests comment to us all evening (and the next day!) about the wedding ceremony you created. They loved that it was so personal and that it truly reflected the art of marriage and the sacredness of the bond. They also loved the symbolism of the carved heart and the “rings of love.” Finally, they adored your wonderful sense of humor—as do George and I! All of us wanted the ceremony to be the most important element of the evening—and it truly was.Sent on 10/09/2019
It was a honor to break bread with you at our table. We hope to stay in touch with you, and we will certainly recommend you to all of our friends. We have already had requests for your name! 😊
Take care, Reverend Frank. You are truly a gift in all of our lives.
With much love and affection,

One of our best vendors
Rev Frank offiacted our wedding two weeks ago, and we could not be happier with our ceremony. When we first met him for coffee, we could tell he was the perfect fit for us. Rev Frank was very responsive to emails and sensitive to tricky family dynamics. The ceremony he created was beautiful! It was one of our favorite parts of the day. We've received so many compliments about how personalized the ceremony was. We also took the Rev Frank's premarital course. The online format was great for our crazy work schedules. My husband and I are so glad we chose Rev Frank and highly recommend him.Sent on 09/19/2019
Rev. Frank Nelson has a beautiful way of personally connecting with the couples that are planning weddings. Throughout the planning process he gets to know the couples he is marrying. On the day of the rehearsal and the wedding he is totally devoted to guiding everyone to understand their role. He doesn't crowd other weddings into one day. He truly 'devotes' and focuses himself on the wedding he is performing. 'Calm', 'confident' and 'caring' describes Rev. Nelson. He is comfortable in any situation. I have interacted with him in a variety of settings including an outdoor vineyard wedding, a park, as well as many classy venues. The ceremonies he conducts are thoughtful and heartfelt. He has a gift for connecting with people including other wedding professionals such as myself, the wedding party, the guests, and most importantly...the wedding couple. Those who experience Rev. Nelson's weddings are truly blessed.
