Dear Frank,

Betzy and I want to thank you for being a part of our lives on our wedding day on April 14th.  You made everything so easy for me and my wife on that big day -- thank you for the kind words that you gave to both of us.  We had lots of good compliments about you from family and friends.  You are very professional in what you do and we will always have those kind words about “that years will pass as we get older in life we will look at our rings on our fingers and see the indentations they make on our fingers showing how much we love each other.”  Those words will always stay in our minds and hearts. Thanks so much Frank.

Sincerely, Joe and Betzy R.

Frank & Marlene-

Jammie and I wanted to say thank you for providing exactly what we wanted in an intimate and meaningful outdoor ceremony. We appreciated your efforts in helping make our day special and providing a unique event for us. It was a surreal moment and we were nervous and excited and loving the location and weather. We also appreciated the personality match when working with you. We are very happy with how this turned out, and extremely satisfied with the restaurant you suggested for our intimate dinner – the setting, meal and experience were excellent!

Sincerely,

Newlyweds Daniel & Jammie E.


Dear Frank:

We cannot thank you enough for everything you've done for us for our wedding day.  We appreciate all the little details that you included to making our ceremony extra special, from the emails and phone calls to the face-to-face meeting to get to know us prior to the wedding.  Thank you for creating such an amazing and intimate ceremony for us.  After the wedding, our guests have told us again and again that our wedding was the best one they've ever been to and it's all thanks to you.  The way that you incorporated our lives into the ceremony with your humor added that special touch that engaged all of our guests and set our ceremony apart from all the rest.

We spent months looking for an officiant who best fit our personalities and who we thought could deliver the most perfect wedding but we had no such luck in the beginning.  We didn't find you until 3 months prior to our wedding and we are so glad that we waited until we found you and that we did not settle for just any officiant out there.  You have been wonderful and we highly recommend you to every couple that is getting married.

Also, thank you for the printed copy of our ceremony.  It was a nice present to open up coming back from our honeymoon.

Love

Maureen and Jackman


I can't say enough about how much fun we had doing an "on the beach" style wedding ceremony.  It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife!  We felt the wedding ceremony was everything, and more, we had hoped it would be.  Standing by the ocean went perfectly and, to our surprise, we developed a small crowd by the end of our vows.  The pictures taken by your wife were superb -- thank you!  I would highly recommend your wedding services to everyone who wants to get married in Southern California .

Hi Frank,

Just wanted to say thanks for performing our wedding service at The Garden Room La Habra on August 22nd.  We had so many comments about what a nice service it was.  It was a great start to Great Day – Thanks so much for your help!

Regards, Dave & Maria


Hi Frank:

From the both of us, we would like to thank you for a great wedding service.  We both have the greatest respect for the passion with which you perform ceremonies and would definitely recommend you to any of our friends, should they choose to marry or enact any vows that require an officiant.  You certainly livened up what would have been a non-lively, traditional ceremony, and gave the both of us a great memory to look back on!

It was great that you gave our wedding a personality of its own.  It felt unique and special, surpassing the expectations of both of us.  Great job, Frank!  Because you were able to “win over” Bach Yen’s mother, that took a lot of stress off the two of us.

Once again, thank you, Frank, and good luck on your future endeavors.

To the Best Officiant on the Face of the Planet (also known as Frank):

Words cannot begin to express how grateful we are to have met you and have you play such a big role in the biggest day of our life … you truly are gifted and are doing what your were put here to do.  We couldn’t have dreamed of a better ceremony!  It will forever be the hallmark of creative perfection and sincerity.  You gave us everything we asked for plus so much more – tears, laughter, fun … and above all a memorable and illuminous moment.  We have been told over and over by our guests that our ceremony was the best ceremony they had ever been a part of.  Even David Tutera (“My Fair Wedding” host) asked me if you were someone we knew…

Thank you Frank!  David Tutera brought heaven to earth for our special day, but it could not have been complete without you and Tie The Knot Ceremonies.

Thank you for the pics!  The show will air the end of August (2010) on WE TV ..  We will forward you pictures when we receive them from our photographer.

Best wishes and many thanks!

Christopher and LaLa Morrow

Dear Frank,

We want to thank you so much for the AMAZING job you did at our wedding. Not only did you make our special day unique from any others, but you also made it special for all our guest. You would not believe how many compliments we got about the ceremony you gave, from your sense of humor to the wonderful stories you told about us. But also you brought a personal touch to our wedding that brought so much joy and laughter to us and our friends and family. We are very thankful for your service. We will HIGHLY recommend you to others.

Love,

Jaclyn and Joshua Praytor

Dear Frank,

Thank you for making our ceremony that much more beautiful with your kind words, professionalism, and sense of humor. As a teacher, I can really respect someone who is as organized as you were throughout the process; it truly made me rest at ease. I loved that you met with us months before hand and we were able to go through all of the details in person. We, also, thought it was very special that you have the option to give a single rose to each of the mothers, along with a poem/prose; that really added a loving touch to the ceremony. Thank you for meeting our expectations and more!

Kindest Regards,

The Ciotta's


Dear Frank,

Miki and I want to let you know how wonderful our April 24th, 2010 wedding was thanks to your grace, humor, insight and genuine interest in making a special day even more so!  Even though we had never met, we both felt as if we already knew you when you arrived to officiate the ceremony. You captured our spirit and had a real sense of who we were (in fact those in attendance thought we had you officiate because we were already friends...we weren't at the time but we certainly are now)!!! Your ready acceptance of the casual event we desired and the beautiful words you expressed throughout the ceremony made this wedding especially memorable...not only to us but to the friends who shared our special day.  We encourage anyone to contact you when they are ready to marry.   Thank you for the superb job and we will hope to see you the next time we are back in California.

Keep up the great work,

Jack and Miki Beaton

Frank Meola was thought to be a close family friend from the guests at the wedding as he was able to personalize our ceremony as if he knew us for years.  Everyone laughed, cried and ran the gamut of emotions from the ceremony, as Frank told our story and officiated our ceremony. 

He was also very professional and offered great advice to help us determine what kind of ceremony we wanted to have in relation to spirituality and the overall tone. 

I highly recommend Frank for all weddings.

Frank:

Thanks so much for coming to Palm Springs and presiding over our wedding.  Your funny and touching words had just the right balance of humor and seriousness, and captured the mood of the day perfectly.  Everyone loved it!  Thanks again.

Hi Frank,

I hope you are doing well!

Kev & I just got back from our honeymoon and wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony you performed for us on 9/27 at Rancho Capistrano. You were fantastic and we couldn't have asked for a nicer ceremony. So many of our guests also gave us compliments about you, saying that you made everyone feel very comfortable and this made them enjoy the ceremony very much.  Kev & I also appreciated this, and were very comfortable ourselves, thanks very much in part to your personable nature.

Thank you for posting photos on your web page as well, we checked them out too. Thanks again for everything Frank! You truly made the ceremony a beautiful experience!

Best,

Sheri & Kev Clinton


Frank,

Thank you so much!  The ceremony was amazing and everyone was going on and on about how great you were!  I have a few friends getting married in the near future so I will definitely give them your info!  Thanks for making our day so special.  I will send you some pics soon.

Thanks!

Michele


Dear Frank,

Thank you so much for officiating our ceremony.  The ceremony you delivered exceeded our expectations.  You made us feel calm and comfortable on such an important day.  Our family and friends were praising you and wondered where we had found you!

Also, thank you so much for being so attentive and supportive during our planning process.  Your professionalism helped to calm a very nervous bride!  Best of luck to you and your wife.

Melissa & Craig


Dear Frank,

Words cannot express the gratitude we have for you. You did such an amazing job and we are so happy to have had you to officiate our wedding ceremony!  The ceremony was perfect; you made it personal and the guests truly enjoyed it. We have not stopped receiving complements from all our guests on how great the ceremony was because of you. We also appreciate how you made jokes in the ceremony, which kept us and our guests entertained…and kept me from crying too much!

We also wanted to thank you for making things much easier for us.  By the time we got back from our honeymoon, we had certified marriage license copies in the mail, which made it very easy to begin the name changing process.  We were also thrilled to receive a copy of the ceremony to keep as a reminder of what our wedding day consisted of.

Thank you so much, again, for everything you did to make our wedding special.

Take care,

Kalina and Brandon Moore


Hi Frank:

All I can say is WOW! When Frank and I met you, we both knew in an instance that you were the man for the job. You made us both feel so at ease and you knew just the right direction we wanted our wedding to take.  When the ceremony was over, we had so many compliments on how beautiful the service was and how you captured who we are as a couple.  We were so delighted on the beautiful way you put together our vows. We will treasure this for many years to come.  Thank you for sharing our special day with us.

Louise and Frank D'Ambra

Dear Frank,

Steven and I are so very blessed to have had you to officiate at our wedding! We truly believe that you needed table tops just so that you could be the one to marry us! (Inside joke)  We really had no idea how we were going to find the "right" person, and there you were, an answer to our prayers. Upon our initial meeting we both knew that you were a perfect fit.

Everyone that attended our wedding has remarked upon what a great service; humorous, thoughtful, and loving -- such a wonderful, heartfelt job you did. You were everything and more that either of us could have ever wished for on our wedding day.

I would happily recommend you to anyone getting married. I cannot imagine that anyone else could conduct a more personalized ceremony that honestly makes two people feel that they have been united in marriage.

Steven and I had a goal of not having persons at our wedding that were not someone we knew, we wanted an intimate wedding.  When the wedding date arrived you were indeed a FRIEND, and pastor. Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us and our history as childhood sweethearts, and as parents combining two families.

I must also thank you for the wonderful transcript of our ceremony. I felt a little lost, as being caught up in the moment of my vows to Steven. I had felt my memory was fuzzy.  When I opened the mail and was able to read my ceremony, it brought everything into clear focus, and, of course, the tears of joy ran!  I am so very grateful for that wonderful unexpected gift!

Steven and I hope this finds you and your beautiful wife, Marlene, well. We hope to continue to keep in touch with such great people. Thank you for making my wedding day mine – Wonderful and special!

With Much Love!

Steven & Karen Guardamondo


Frank,

We just wanted to thank you again for making our day so special.  Both of our families agreed that the ceremony was wonderful.  They said that you were so personal and that you had made them laugh.  After the wedding, Haide and me both agreed that we were so happy with the ceremony and we were so glad that we had hired you.  Hope you are doing well and, once again, thank you for everything.  Take care,

Daniel and Haide Landeros
