    Rev. Frank is amazing. We were given his name as a reference from a friend of ours, and we are so thankful that they did. He was very professional, and he has a very warm personality that we knew would be perfect in our ceremony. We still consider him a very good friend, and send him a Christmas card every year. I would absolutely recommend him to a friend.

    From the moment we met Rev. Frank we knew this would be a perfect fit! He was very kind, polite, and professional. He really listened to us both equally, taking the time to get to know us. He took what we both said and created the most beautiful and personal wedding vows. We could not of asked for anything more! Next to my bed is a small wooden heart he crafted for us and gave to us during our wedding. I look at it every day and not only think of our vows and our love for one another but also I think of Rev. Frank and what an amazng man he is! We will never forget our wedding day!! Thank you Rev. Frank!

    Reverend Frank was absolutely great to work with. He met with us a bunch of times before our wedding day to get to know us, and counsel us about what marrige means. He was flexible with his meeting times and even came to our home to do them. When it came time for the rehearsal and the actual wedding, he was prompt, professional, and endearing. The message during the ceremony was perfect... we even had guests come up to us afterward telling us that they really loved what Rev Frank had to say. My husband and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is looking for an officiant for thier wedding.

    I always say if I had dreamt up the perfect officiant for our wedding in my head, he still wouldn't have been as good as Rev. Frank Nelson. What can I say? From the very first day we met, Rev. Frank made us feel like the most valued couple in the world. His interest, attention to detail, and insights into our relationship and families over our year of couple's counseling together really helped to make it feel like he was an old friend rather than a minister-for-hire come the Big Day. He's not just going through the motions; he legitimately cares about his clients' lives, relationships, and well-being.

    Being not that religious ourselves but with very religious parents (Catholic and Lutheran), my husband and I had a difficult line to walk with our wedding ceremony. But Rev. Frank understood this completely and crafted a ceremony that was personalized and spiritual without being overtly religious one way or the other. In the end, it was the ceremony of our dreams, and everyone we spoke to afterwards had nothing but praise for the event, saying how personal, honest, and thoughtful it all was.

    I cannot say enough about how outstanding an experience this was. If you hire Rev. Frank for your wedding, you will not be disappointed.

    Rev. Frank is a bit on the pricey side, but he was a perfect fit for our wedding. We took his marriage classes before hand, so we had some time to get to know each other. It was clear at our wedding that he took a lot of time to consider who we were as individuals and what type of wedding service would fit us and our personalities best. He was caring, funny, touching and light hearted. A perfect fit four our special day. I would highly recommend him, and recommend taking his classes before hand. He is a person worth getting to know!

    Reverend Frank was absolutely fantastic! We did both the marriage preparation and had Reverend Frank as our wedding officiant and could not be happier with the services provided.

    Wedding Officiant: We had so many comments from our guests about how well Reverend Frank ran the ceremony and how beautiful his words were. He customized the ceremony and worked with us so that it ran the way we had envisioned it. He used words from our own thoughts and discussions that we had with him, which was great and helped make the ceremony feel more intimate and personal.

    Marriage Preparation: Reverend Frank was great to work with. We really enjoyed meeting with him for each of our visits. He was patient and great a listening and giving us tools for what we need to have a successful marriage. It also helped both of us feel more comfortable when it came time for the ceremony.

    We would highly recommend Reverend Frank!

    When we were looking for an officiant, we were looking for someone that offered marriage counseling and would manage our rehearsal and ceremony. We can't imagine finding a better officiant than Rev. Frank. We took the pre-marriage counseling (highly recommend) and got to know him before the ceremony. Through the counseling, Rev. Frank was able to personalize our ceremony. We had nothing but wonderful comments about the ceremony from our guests.

    Rev. Dr. Frank Nelson was quite possibly the best choice we made for the wedding. Not only was he incredibly heartwarming, friendly and kind but also quite patient and well organized. Prior to the wedding he put together our ceremony in a well-timed manner and incorporated many personalized quotes from our marriage counseling sessions into the ceremony. This enabled our wedding to have the personal element I so desperately yearned for.
    As for the day of the ceremony, we had few somewhat chaotic moments including the best man who was went missing and was absent during the rehearsal. He was able to come up with immediate solutions to situation and kept everyone calm. His serene demeanor kept the wedding together and helped smooth the entire event.
    Additionally, prior to the wedding ceremony, he spent quite a bit of time talking with our families. Every single person commented on how nice he was and that they were very happy with his service.

    Rev. Nelson is great! Not only did we enjoy his preparation and professionalism, so did all of our guests! Everyone thought his remarks during the ceremony were memorable and appropriate. Great experience all the way around.

    Reverend Frank was a very thoughtful, considerate, and valuable contributor to our wedding. We received several positive comments about him from friends and family after the ceremony. We would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding.

    Rev. Frank was a pleasure to work with. He made us fell comfortable throughout the process and provided useful guidance for us to use throughout our lives and our marriage. The ceremony was outstanding and Rev. Frank was well-prepared and conducted it beautifully. After the ceremony, we received numerous complements from our family and friends. We would highly recommend Rev. Frank!

    Our experience with Reverend Frank surpassed our expectations. While we weren't originally planning on taking the pre-marriage course with him, we are so glad we did! We learned so much more about each other. His approach is to provide a non-threatening environment, where the couple can feel free to be completely open and honest with each other. He helped us to acknowledge each other's differences and in fact celebrate them. We still have our work book and refer back to it when necessary. The day of our wedding was incredibly special and much of that was due to Reverend Frank. He provided us with a beautiful ceremony and really helped to take charge so that everything went off smoothly.

    My wife and I where very happy with Rev. Frank. From the start we felt very comfortable sharing our life story with Rev. Frank, as you could really sense his compassion for helping couples transition from engagement to marriage. We also enjoyed doing the at home marriage classes, which provided flexibility for our busy schedules. We would highly recommended using Rev. Frank as an officiant for your wedding.
