- I'm not sure if other brides get so many compliments on their ceremonies, but it is ALL anyone could talk about at the reception.

- Wow! Hiring Rev. Frank was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding and marriage. He is a true professional – tending to each client with interest, care and excitement.Frank played a huge role in making the day and the ceremony so special.

- We have been to many weddings in the Twin Cities and we can honestly say that no one will do a better, more custom, beautiful ceremony than him! FIVE STARS!

- To say this was an AMAZING experience would be an understatement. We had so many people tell us it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever attended.

This thank you note from a bride arrived in the mail after the wedding: You did a tremendous job and we couldn't think of a more fun way to have a rehearsal. We received so many compliments all night on your ceremony. We couldn't have asked for it to go any better. Your blend of religion, love and humor was absolutely perfect. Thanks so much!!!

And this Christmas note is from a groom: We loved every little touch you did to make the ceremony amazing. We loved every second of it and could not be happier with having you marry us! We also want to thank you for the marriage counseling! We feel the time we spent with you prepared us for the amazing journey of marriage. Wishing you a joyful holiday and a Merry Christmas!

    Personal and professional

    Frank worked with us from the beginning. He encouraged us to get to know each other more. He guided us through a beautiful and simple ceremony, and was instrumental in keeping us all on track.

    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!

    Most complimented part of our wedding

    Reverend Frank was a wonderful addition to our wedding day (and many days leading up to it). We did the premarital class with Rev. Frank and thought they were time and money well spent! We plan to use what we learned with Rev Frank as we go forward as husband and wife. Everyone we have spoken to since the wedding has talked about how much they loved Rev Frank! They loved him during the ceremony and they loved him during the reception and prayer. He really made the day wonderful for us. He was great to work with ahead of time and we couldn't have asked for more.

    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.
