    Such an amazing job!!!

    I loved having Mark officiate our wedding. He was really great throughout the process. We were a little hesitate but ended up taking his marriage class too prior to the wedding and ended up really enjoying it and getting to know more about each other!!! It also made the wedding day nice as we were comfortable with Mark. He could tell that we were nervous during the ceremony and really took time to make it more personal and make us laugh. We had so many compliments from family and friends about how personal and yet relaxed the ceremony was. He really took our input for what worked for us for the ceremony and made it everything we wanted!!!! I highly recommend Mark as your officiant he did such an amazing job!!!!

    Amazing! Best day ever!

    Mark was wonderful! We Skyped with him prior to our wedding since it was a destination wedding. He made our ceremony personal and entertaining for our guests and my fiancé (now husband) Matt and I. He had great energy, prayed with us before our ceremony and was very laid back. We are likely bias but it was the best wedding ever!

    Made everything run smoothly!

    Mark was great! He was friendly, professional, and officiated my wedding beautifully which is all I could ask for. All my family said he was great. He even helped me out when my veil was blowing around in the wind during the beginning of the ceremony by tucking it so it doesn’t blow around which I appreciated! Thank you Mark! I highly recommend him :)

    Mark is as good as they come!

    Mark was absolutely wonderful every step of the way. His premarital counseling course is extremely beneficial (which we plan on continuing even now that the wedding is over), and he made our ceremony perfect for us—it was very much tailored to us as a couple. All of our guests said it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to, and I’d have to agree. We could not have asked for anyone better to marry us, and Mark truly made an effort to get to know us on a personal level. To us, choosing the right officiant was one of the most important aspects of the wedding planning, and I can say that we, without a doubt, succeeded. We couldn’t be happier with our choice—thank you Mark! We look
    forward to our future counseling sessions with you!

    We loved our experience!

    We are so happy we chose Mark to officiate our wedding! Our wedding was a destination wedding, but we had the chance to meet Mark once beforehand and then through his webinar class (which we really enjoyed). Mark is such a great man and you feel like you've known him your whole life the minute you meet. Our ceremony was full of love, humor, great advice and words of wisdom. We will cherish our wedding ceremony forever. Thank you Mark!!

    Mark is Awesome!

    Mark was an incredible, genuine and memorable part of our special day. My wife & I really felt comfortable with Mark, from the first time we met and we began to know each other. Obviously Mark is providing a service, but we never felt like just another client. Our day was specially tailored to our expectations and desires. Mark really won us, and our guests over. I received many compliments after the ceremony about how funny, genuine & memorable Mark was. Thank you for setting such an amazing tone for the rest of the day Mark! We’re also looking forward to the classes =)

    Mark is amazing!

    Reverend Mark was AMAZING! He was everything that we wanted to have as our officiant. We found him pretty soon after we got engaged and he was always there for us whenever we had questions throughout the year. His marriage class was also amazing, and he’s so flexible with everything. We are very thankful to have had him be a part of our wedding day - he made the ceremony so special. He cracked us up and made the whole crowd laugh. We felt so comfortable around him, and we were sad to have him go after the ceremony. We HIGHLY recommend having Mark as your officiant (and marriage counselor as well!!!) thank you so much Mark!! Love, Logan and Megan

    Best minister ever

    Mark is the best, he made our wedding so fun and special. He fit in with all our friends and family and made them feel like they were all a special part of the day. Everyone is still talking about him. He is amazing, we are so glad he was able to be a part of our day. He was so much fun and was a great help with everything.

    We love Reverend Mark!!

    Reverend Mark was amazing!!! We had him for our wedding in November. We had asked for a Christain based ceremony, and it had perfect parts for faith, seriousness, and he also balanced it with some fun suprises (which I had told him that was fine). I received so many compliments on how well he balanced the seriousness and importance of getting married but also made it fun for everyone. People told me that it felt like they were also renewing our vows. Reverend Mark is such a nice and thoughtful man, gave us a whole packet of advice and what to do for name changing, etc, and also offers a marriage counseling course. Mark- thank you so much for the most amazing and rememberable wedding!

    Great officiant

    My husband and I are so glad we chose Mark to officiate our wedding! He was very personable, friendly to our family and friends, and all our guests loved him! He offered a pre-marriage course you can take which helps to give little tips and tricks to make your future marriage great and also allows you to get to know Mark better so it's not just some stranger marrying you. He lets you review and modify your ceremony script to your liking and he has a great personality so there were little adlibbed jokes and funny remarks throughout to make it more light hearted and interesting. If we could choose all over again we'd still pick Mark. And he offers to provide marriage guidance even after you get married if you ever needed it. What more could you ask for :)

    Very helpful and knowledgable

    My husband and I signed up for one of Mark's packages that did not include his 8 week class. He was kind enough to add the class for us anyway. It was really great to get to know Mark during those 8 weeks and made meeting him the day before the wedding feel really relaxed. We knew we could trust him to make our experience great.

    Mark came up with our vows for us which were exactly what we were looking for. He sent us his whole script for the wedding and allowed us to send feedback for what we liked and if we wanted anything removed.

    He helped us stay relaxed on the big day and really felt like an old friend.

    Would highly recommend his services for anyone local or coming from out of town like we were.

    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.

    Mark is the best! Not only does he make sure you're comfortable with every single thing he will be saying during your ceremony but he takes the time prior to your wedding to truly get to know you as a couple. From multiple surveys, phone calls, even FaceTime if you want, Mark makes sure he's not just performing a ceremony but actually joining two people together in marriage. Not to mention, he is one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever met. I highly recommend you have him be a part of your special day.

    Mark was very personal and professional. We couldn't have imagined anyone else preforming our wedding ceremony. It is very clear how much Mark genuinely cares through his kind words and actions. Mark is truly one of a kind and we are very grateful that he has become a part of our lives.

    I searched forever for the perfect Reverend on google, yelp, etc and stumbled upon Mark. It must have been our lucky day because I couldn't have asked for a better overall experience. He's attentive, responds to emails quickly, met us at the Carson City Courthouse to get our marriage certificate, and went above and beyond to make sure our wishes were granted for the ceremony. During the actual ceremony I was blown away, as were our guests. I got so many comments afterwards about how we found him and that he nailed it! He helped us with writing our vows, which had some in tears, and he stepped in at the perfect times to make sure things stayed funny and lite. Seriously couldn't have imagined anyone better to marry us and I can honestly say it was the best day of my life, due in part, to Mark (and my wonderful husband of course!).

    Mark is truly an amazing person! He really cares about the couples he marries. We didn't have anyone in mind to perform out wedding ceremony. Mark came highly recommended. We met with him several months before the wedding and knew right away that we wanted him to marry us. He is very professional. He wrote the ceremony and it turned out beautifully! We highly recommend Mark Frady.

    Choosing all your vendors for your wedding day can be extremely stressful, especially for destination weddings. We chose Mark Frady to marry us in Incline Village and he came highly recommended by our planning services as well as the venue in which we married. We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect ceremony. He was so organized and professional from start to finish. He even offers marriage enrichment classes and has an extremely high track record of couples that have stayed married. He worked with us to provide the ceremony we both envisioned and even gave us the entire ceremony to look over to make sure it was exactly what we wanted.

    He was so nice to all of our guests and families and everyone truly enjoyed him. Many people approached us after to let us know he was the best Reverend ever and they truly loved him! He had us all laughing and enjoying every minute of the ceremony. People always tell you that your wedding day is over as quickly as you blink, and it is very true. I tell everyone that researching your vendors is very important to a successful wedding day to give you both everything you ever dreamed of.

    I am so happy we chose such an amazing person to perform our marriage vows and ceremony. This was so important to both of our families and all of our friends who joined us.

    Thank you Mark for beyond exceeding our expectations and we highly recommend you to anyone getting married in the area! We appreciate everything you did for us along the way to make this such a magical and truly memorable day.

    We truly appreciate you!
    Love, Michelle & Chris

    Mark was wonderful, he took the time to really get to each of us and to really personalize our ceremony. We had a delay in ceremony due to rain and he took it in stride and helped us to remain calm and confident that everything will turn out beautifully. He was very informative and helpful in the wedding license procedures a well as helpful in the changing of name process. Mark is a very warm, friendly, and inspiring person who accepted all our family and made our ceremony beautiful. We were truly blessed to have him a part of our day!
