"Beyond expectations! I'm the human hyperbole, and I couldn't exaggerate how ridiculously special the day was. I don't envy any of our friends and family who have the task of getting married after that ceremony. Thank you for understanding what makes that day so special, and for 'getting us'. You received rave reviews from every person in the building. I'd go on and on, but you were there, so you know how special it was. Thank you. We'll never forget it, and feel like we have another amazing person in our wonderful tribe." ~Dave and Laura Duffy
Frank, We couldn't have been happier with you as our Officiant and Master of Ceremony for our wedding and reception. You helped make it perfect--thank you so much!! We've been getting rave reviews from our guests and online visitors, and the photos have already made it online at Huffington Post, The Advocate.com and Out.com

"Thank you for everything. Yesterday was fantastic! Everyone in attendance agreed that you were a perfect Officiant for us. I appreciated especially the fact that you seem so joyful about the role you play in presiding over the connections between the people getting married, as well as those in attendance. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn’t change a thing."
~Fred and Julie
"Frank, The word 'Thanks' isn't enough for the wonderful job you did last week at our wedding. Our family and friends mentioned several times afterwards what a memorable ceremony it was and how terrific you are at your job!!!!! Thank you again!!!"

"Hi Frank, James and I wanted to thank you for all you did to make our wedding memorable, romantic, special, and simply perfect. We celebrated this past Saturday with our friends and family here in Texas…You were wonderful to work with and we are so happy to have found you!"
~Nathanael and James
Frank, "We wanted to thank you for everything! We had a lot of guests saying "That was the most fun I've ever had at a wedding", and "I've never laughed so much during a ceremony". Which was great! Matt and I know about boring weddings and we didn't want one. Everything went smoothly, and we really had no wedding expert on our team besides you! So, thank you for everything, it was a blast!"
~Kaarin and Matt
"Thanks again for making our wedding day very special. We could not have chosen a better person to officiate over our ceremony. You are a fun guy and you made our day that much more fun."
