Reverend Fred is a hilarious, caring, and wonderful man who I would recommend to anybody getting married. He was an absolute delight, and our entire family loved spending time with him during our rehearsal dinner and throughout our wedding nigh...
t. We have a lot of great things to say about Reverend Fred, but one of the most spectacular things is the ceremony book that he loans to couples planning their wedding.
Inside the ceremony book is over 30 different wedding ceremonies covering several variations of typical traditional, non-traditional, nondenominational, and even Celtic wedding ceremony examples along with more I can't even think of. There are also dozens of various unity ceremony examples to choose from, and everyone loved our wine ceremony. All of which Reverend Fred made sure was ready. We called our venue and left a message the day before to ensure they had everything set up and ready in time for the ceremony. However, Reverend Fred noticed they did not have anything set up 20 minutes prior and took it upon himself to make sure they had it ready. He truly takes pride in officiating weddings for loving couples, and it is evident in his actions.
Also, I would like to mention as a person who is not religious that Reverend Fred is not a man who will pass judgment at no point did he try to push us to do or say anything we were uncomfortable with. For example, my mother-in-law requested a dinner blessing; however, I was on the fence when she initially brought it up. My family wasn't as religious as hers, and I didn't want to make anyone uncomfortable. Of course, I was hesitant to bring my concern up to the Reverand, but he took it in stride. He sidelined the idea and at no point, put pressure on us to go one way or another, and he assured us whatever decision we made was final. He offered to share a video example of the dinner blessings he has done in the past, and we decided to go with it. We are pleased we did it made a lot of people in the family happy and Reverend Fred is a fantastic writer and speaker who captured us as a couple.
We have absolutely no regrets with our choosing Reverend Fred to officiate our wedding, he did a fantastic job, and everyone in the family enjoyed his company, ceremony, and dinner blessing. Thank you so much for helping us craft a truly unique and extraordinary ceremony to show how much the merging our two lives meant.
