Tie the Knot Ceremonies
FRANK A. MEOLA, DD, Officiant
Thank you for doing a wonderful job as the officiant for our wedding ceremony. You were professional in every sense of the word, every step of the way. We really appreciated the interest you took during the preparation phase to get to know us and make the ceremony ours, as well as fulfill any requests that we had. With the actual ceremony you did a great job, just as we anticipated. You delivered a beautiful wedding message and helped stir peoples emotions across a wide spectrum, from laughter to tears. You made the ceremony relaxed, yet elegant. Fun, yet romantic. Frank, we really couldn't have been any happier with how you performed our ceremony. It was terrific.
We'll keep in touch Frank. We really do want to thank you for doing a great job.
Hope all is well in SoCal. It's beginning to get a little chilly here.

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.

Our wedding would have not have been as genuine, comfortable and personable as it was, had it not been for Frank. Often times, the ceremony sets the tone for the rest of the celebration. Our ceremony was one to remember, not only for Chris and I, but also for all the guests who attended! Frank opened the ceremony by taking into consideration my Persian background. He opened with welcome phrases in Farsi, which enchanted all the Persian family and guests. He was really funny and personable and made a serious commitment just that, but also added a sense of fun, which is something you need in every day life and all situations. I am not exaggerating when I say this, but everyone who I have spoken with about the wedding after the fact, asked me how I found Frank and that he really added the success and enjoyment of the wedding as a whole.
I would recommend Frank to all my friends and family. He is funny, well spoken, witty, committed and pro-active. I never asked him to say anything in Farsi, he learned it on his own. He also helped make our ceremony more personal by interviewing Chris and I and asking us a few questions, which he shapped into a speech during the ceremony. It was lovely and brought tears to my eyes. If you want your wedding to start off on the best possible foot, Trust Frank!
Frank, thank you for starting our wedding with a successful ceremony and, most importantly, thanks for listening to what we wanted and delivering to that.

Frank was the perfect addition to our special day at the Fullerton Arboretum. Not only was he extremely professional and on time, but his delivery was so perfect. He created a beautiful and meaningful ceremony, incorporating the things that were important to us from our different traditions. He also kept the crowd involved and laughing, which was fantastic because it kept me from crying throughout the whole thing. He knew exactly when to lighten the mood. I have received so many compliments about his ceremony. We loved him and so did all of our guests. Thank you so much Frank for making our day exactly what we have always wanted.

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 Meola was such a pleasure to work with from start to finish. From first meeting with Frank alongside my husband he was completely transparent in his dealings and told us what we would anticipate with the package we had chosen. We spent a little more to include unique personalization to the ceremony but my husband and I were glad that we did. We were pleased with the ceremony, it was absolutely beautiful with a few laughs placed at the most appropriate times. In addition, I tested Frank’s service repeatedly. My husband and I had the unfortunate event in having to get his last name corrected in time for the wedding. I had endless questions for Frank and while it was not part of his job to get me those answers he did all that he could in working with the county courthouse to get my questions answered. While it worked out in the end I was thankful for Frank’s efforts and patience through the whole ordeal. Any question or thought I had at any time of the day, Frank would follow-up shortly thereafter. If there was a rating for Frank’s services I would give him 5 stars out of 5.
Fernando and I want to give a big thank you for making our day the most memorable it could possibly be. Not only did we think you did a phenomenal job, but our friends and family said you were the best officiant they've ever seen at a wedding. My father raved about you and loved how you were able to incorporate humor when you performed our ceremony. The fact that you let us "borrow" your ring when we accidently misplaced Fernando's was quick thinking on your part!
In all honesty, we could not have had a better wedding and were blown away at the ceremony. We were so stressed trying to find the perfect officiant for our ceremony and we are so very glad we went with you. We absolutely loved the questionnaire and were surprised with how similar our answers were. We appreciate our keepsakes and for all you have done for us. If anyone is looking for an officiant for their wedding, you're definitely who we would recommend!
Thank you so very much for everything!

Thank you for being our officiant! We have been to so many weddings and you are definitely the best officiant ever! You are so considerate to think of every steps in the ceremony. You even printed and brought the vows in case we forget. You calmed us down as you could tell we were nervous. You were professional, entertaining and gave a great speech. It was so much fun and our guests loved the ceremony. We felt so luck to have you in our wedding and would like to thank you for making our wedding so special and unforgettable!
Thank you again! Lianzi & Ting
Jeremy and I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for marrying us last year. Finding an officiant turned out to be a lot more difficult than we had expected! But as soon as we met with you, we knew we had met the one! You made us laugh immediately and for us, that sealed the deal. We appreciated having the chance to talk with you over the phone, meet with you and then communicate with you via phone/email throughout the process. Planning the ceremony and the entire "flow" of the wedding can be a bit overwhelming. However, your level of experience and professionalism helped us to feel very comfortable and to know we were in good hands. We also really appreciated how flexible you were throughout the planning process. We wanted to include particular things in our ceremony such as handfasting, reciting our own vows and a rose ceremony for all of our family members and you really helped us pull it all together. We received so many compliments on our ceremony and you played a big part in making it so beautiful.
Once we had the rehearsal and you walked us through everything, we both felt very relieved about our wedding day. I remember you telling me not to worry about a thing, and by the end of the rehearsal, I really took your advice! Having you there by our side was just like having another member of the family there with us. We felt so comfortable and knew that everything was going to work out and go perfectly on our wedding day, and it really did.
We can't thank you enough for making our wedding day everything we hoped for and more! We would gladly recommend you to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. Thanks again and take care!
Crystal & Jeremy
Let us first begin by saying how grateful we both are that you were able to marry the both of us. Your wit and humor definitely eased the tension. You were very professional and dressed very nicely. We really appreciated the personal touches of our “love story” you included in the ceremony, as well as the photo of us with you and the kind invitation extended to us to create a photo gallery on your website. We would be honored if you were able to do that. Additionally, thank you for the promptness in making sure we got our Marriage License in a timely manner. And, once more, for all that you have done in making our day special!Sincerely.

Franco and I would like to thank you for officiating our ceremony. You did an amazing job and truly made it personal and unique just for us, which is exactly what we were looking for. We felt extremely comfortable with you to where we were actually able to feel relaxed. Not to mention, our sincere thanks for adding the "extra touch" of Italian just for us!! Our friends and family had nothing but compliments about the ceremony, indicating that it was the most flawless and enjoyable ceremony they had ever seen, as it really had a meaning! We are truly thankful we found you and our sincere thanks for helping our day be one of the most perfect and memorable days of our lives. Best wishes to you and your wife and your success.
