Fred was wonderful. He was funny and he helped make my day so special. He was so courteous and accommodating even after I had him waiting for quite a while. I am so very happy that I chose him to be our wedding officiant.

Details: Wedding • Non-denominational (mentions God) • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Thanks for the glowing review, Shauntel! Yes, it was a little wait but your wedding was so beautiful that it was worth it! You and Yul make a great couple and I wish, for you, a lifetime of happiness together!

I truly enjoyed your wedding rehearsal as well as the wedding itself which, though I only played a part in, was a beautiful affair, or as your #It'sAParkerThang strongly suggests confident enjoyment, it lived up to it. I appreciate the hire and the glowing review, and I continue to pray blessings upon your union.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is fairly straightforward and affordable for services within my travel range. However, with negotiated pricing, I am willing to travel beyond as evidence elsewhere in my profile. Generally, the only discounts I offer are to military personnel and that is dependent upon scheduling and travel requirements.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically, I work through Thumbtack and from there any e-mail, pre-visits, phone conversations, etc., are dependent upon the client.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an ordained minister since 1984 and have performed several weddings and, having been a professional musician performing in wedding ceremonies prior to ministry, I am well accustomed to the most common traditions and customs.
