Perhaps the most important decision that you will need to make for a memorable wedding ceremony, is the person you choose to officiate your wedding. Reverend Mark has been involved in the wedding industry for over 25 years in the Lake Tahoe/Reno area. He performs your ceremony with your needs and requests in mind. He also feels that it is important for the wedding officiant to get to know the couple and to take a personal part in their lives. For that reason, he provides a "Marriage Enrichment " class that can be taken before or after the wedding...not required, but strongly recommended, and it's included in his fee. If you do not live in the area, this class can be taken by email, phone, Skype, FaceTime or webinar. Then after you are married, he likes to keep in touch with you on your anniversary and birthday...and provides free marriage counseling for life!
He is a licensed, ordained, minister with the Fountainhead Foursquare Church of Carson City, Nevada, however he can perform any civil or non-denominational marriage. The State of California and the State of Nevada have both issued him "permission" to perform marriages in their respective states.
He and his wife, Carla, have been married for 40 years, and they have three children, ten grandchildren and twelve great grandchild (who keep him jumping...he is very young at heart!). He is honored and proud to call his wife his best friend, and he looks forward to hearing from you that you can say the same thing about your spouse!

Just wanted to write a review to let everyone know how great Mark is. Many of our guests said that our ceremony was one of the most enjoyable ceremonies ever. He is a great speaker and really helped us write vows that fit our personalities and our beliefs. James and I are not religious, but Mark is so open minded and accepting of all people. I love being able to re-read our vows and relive the day. I can't wait to display them in our new home.
We also really enjoyed taking the marriage class with him before our wedding, and feel like we learned tools that will help us have a marriage full of honesty and communication. We plan to look at the book and redo chapters from time to time.
Mark also was very helpful and patient during our very crazy year and went above and beyond when we needed extra help with some very important things! Lots of oops on our part involved. We are so thankful that you took extra time for us. Thank you!

Mark was absolutely fantastic. He personalized everything exactly as we wanted, but also added so many sweet and funny moments that got a good laugh out of everyone. Our ceremony was beautiful and our guests all mentioned how lovely it was. The fact that Mark also clearly cares about the marriage beyond just the day of is a huge bonus and just helps you feel supported on the day of. Strongly recommend to anyone in need of a great guy to deliver on a beautiful wedding ceremony.

I have no criticism. Mark communicated quickly, thoroughly, and well prior to our wedding. On the day of the ceremony he showed up on time and everything went as we discussed. His cheerful, friendly nature made him a welcome addition among our guests and family. Most of all I appreciated discussing God centered values before and after the wedding.
Reverend Mark E. Frady Price Rates
This was my very first time working with Rev. Frady. He was easy to work with and his service was very enjoyable with a very beautiful message.
Reverend Mark Frady connects with each and every one of his couples. He really takes the time to get to know them individually and as a couple. None of his ceremonies are ever the same, as he takes his connections to each couple and helps them to create a perfect ceremony. You can expect a blend of tears, laughter, personality and sincerity in each of his ceremonies.
Mark Frady is a true professional in every way. He is sincere with his clients and makes a point to get to know them. I work with a lot of officiants and he is top rated!
