  • My fiance and I LOVED working with Franny. Her approach was fantastic--she asked us questions about who we were as individuals and as a couple, and she allowed us to review our ceremony ahead of time to ensure that it was to our liking. Our friends and family raved about the ceremony, and we couldn't agree more. It was like she knew us for years, and not for a short amount of time. We're so glad we had her as our officiant!

    Thank you Elena! Your ceremony was so fun to write because you both were so open and inspiring with the information you shared. I loved being a part of it. Thank you for involving me!

  • We initially asked a close family member to officiate our wedding this September and were quite surprised when he declined. I was stressing out but luckily we found Franny and hit it off. We interviewed a couple other officiants and found her to be the most down-to-earth, chill and genuinely interested candidate. She did an awesome job ultimately so it worked out perfectly! We got so many compliments on our ceremony from friends and family. Thank you again! -Elizabeth & Will

  • Franny was an absolute delight to work with to get the ceremony I envisaged for my little family on our elopement. She had great suggestions, was happy with me writing it how I wanted it and was absolutely gorgeous and vibrant on the day. Thanks so much.

  • My wife and I had our wedding officiated by Franny, and we both agree that it was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire process. Our friends were quite involved in helping plan and organize our wedding, so we didn’t want to burden any of them with getting certified, planning the ceremony, and writing extra speeches. We were concerned with hiring someone we didn’t know to officiate the wedding ceremony, but finding Franny was truly a blessing! To help her learn more about us, we had a call with her and she sent us a short list of questions. Filling out the questions ended up being a fantastic exercise for both of us to do in the midst of planning the wedding. They made the process feel light again and reminded us of why we were getting married in the first place! From the information gathered in the questions and calls, she built am absolutely beautiful ceremony for us. She was captivating, well-spoken, and thoughtful. The ceremony was exactly what we wer...

    Thank you Grace and Chris! It was an absolutely pleasure to work with you as you planned your wedding from afar. I loved hearing your story and felt so inspired by your partnership. And I’m still shocked that even in the heat you both looked so calm and collected! It was a great experience all around. All the best to you both as you continue on this adventure.

  • Franny is one eloquent speaker. She drafted a ceremony for us and also incorporated my husband’s daughter in the program. She is witty and very well prepared. Quick turn-around and knows her stuff. She made our wedding intimate and real. We can’t thank her enough. The ceremony was at 10-15 mins, not too long to bore and not to short like the City Hall. Franny captured our guests interests and attention. We highly recommend Franny! Franny, Thank you. You made our hearts full. You literally complete our wedding. One thing I did right is to have you as our officiant.

    Thank you for these kind words, Marikit! It was such a pleasure to be a part of your day. It was beautiful evening because you made it so with your warmth and love for each other. I hope you will stay in touch!

  • Not only did Franny officiate our wedding but she was also our day of coordinator. From our initial meeting, it felt like we had known her for years. She was professional and knew what needed to be done and really helped two Type A planners through the process. Franny took the time to get to know us and what makes us tick to create the perfect ceremony for us. It was an easy, collaborative process and when we got stuck on things she had suggestions on what to do. She has a good, welcoming presence and was a great energy during the ceremony. As for the day of coordinating, we knew that Franny had everything under control and we didn't need to worry about anything. In fact, she was more than a day-of coordinator. She made sure to keep us on track during the planning process and leading up to the wedding as well and helped point us to things that we hadn't figured out yet that we probably should have figured out. We whole heartedly recommend Franny for officiating and d... Read more

  • We couldn't recommend Franny highly enough! We had a very specific ceremony in mind - intimate, cozy, loving - and she came through in every way and more. Her prepared text was imbued with thoughtful and personal details, and her presence during the ceremony was warm and calming. Afterwards, everybody commented on how natural it felt to have her there with us. She is the best! Thank you, Franny, for making our wedding more meaningful and joyful than we could have ever imagined!

  • Franny truly is a wonderful person. She made our ceremony personal, fitting to us just as we wanted. It was as if she was a long personal friend or family member sharing our day. She is very easy to work with, flexible and professional. Our guests all said that her ceremony was perfect for the two of us. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect officiant for their wedding.

  • Franny was amazing from start to finish! She worked with Logan and I to personalize the ceremony and figure out what we wanted to do. She helped with vows and really took the time to get to know us before sending over a draft. On the day of, she was punctual, articulate, and projected well in a difficult outdoor setting. You should hire Franny to be your officiant because she wants the day to be as special as you do.

  • We travelled 8,000 km all the way from Turkey to New York for our wedding ceremony and Franny made it an unforgettable memory for us. The moment we found her on the internet, we felt that she was the right person. We communicated by e-mail and she arranged everything for us in less than 2 months, the location, a beautiful speech, photographer musician, all we asked for. She took care of every detail, tried to know us better in advance and was even dressed in harmony with us. Everything was smooth, just as planned. A beautiful, sweet and truly professional lady. She is beyond dispute the best ! Nagehan & Selim

  • It was a pleasure working with Franny. My fiance and I decided against a religious ceremony only two months before our wedding day and we were so grateful to find Franny as our officiant. She was so easy to work with, making the last step in our wedding planning seamless. Franny was super nice and made us feel comfortable when telling her about our relationship in order for her to get to know us better. She wrote a beautiful ceremony that was true to our relationship and exactly what we wanted. Franny let us review what she wrote about a month before the wedding and encouraged us to be open with her about how we felt and if we wanted her to edit anything. We thought what she wrote was perfect and sentimental, yet lighthearted and funny. She also gave us tips on how we can include short speeches by our best friends in the ceremony. The end result was beautiful and our wedding ceremony could not be more perfect. My family is pretty traditional and many have never been to a wedding that w... Read more

  • When Brandy & I decided to elope, we had a day and half to get everything organized. We searched though a few officiant sites until we found Franny. We instantly felt a kinship based solely on her profile. Her enthusiasm about our short-notice request only added to our excitement. After a brief phone chat and a few email exchanges later, we had the ceremony worked out. Franny brought expertise and unique contributions all the while incorporating and accommodating our wishes. She also provided an excellent recommendation for a photographer and videographer. And then there we all were on a warm Saturday afternoon. Brandy & I had some ideas of what Franny would say and yet found ourselves catching our breath with the words she wrote, the sentiment she shared, the love she reflected back at us. It was so personal, so tender, so open hearted, and we had just met her in person for the first time. She was technically a stranger and yet she was immediately not only a part of our special day bu... Read more
