  • We love the energy and the enthusiasm you have since the first day we met Frank. We know that he was the ONE we're looking for to officiate on our wedding day. He has made our special day even more memorable! It was all perfect and what we wanted. We had a wonderful intimate and personal wedding ceremony and reception. I love how much he's hands-on on the day of the wedding. We are fortunate to have found you. Our guests also have commended you and your energy during our reception! We love how he made us and the guests sucked into that moment and just feel everything in with the personal notes!

  • We could not say enough positive things about Mr. Frank Harlan. He asked questions early on, about 3 months out, and gradually fine tuned a script that we telephonically reviewed about a week out from the wedding. Not one of our 30+ guests had felt he was in any way the wrong man for the job. He was flexible on the day of the wedding, even moving off script and adjusting the routine, on the fly. We had him from about 1 pm until nearly 8 pm. He was and is worth every penny of his fees. We would recommend this officiant for nearly every type of wedding.

  • Frank was awesome. He was so confident in his ability to make sure our service was special that it relieved tons of our planning anxiety. He definitely delivered on that confidence! He choreographed a dual-language ceremony and incorporated two families that had only met once before the ceremony. He took all of our requests and ideas for the service and turned them into a cohesive and emotional experience for us and our guests. Thank you so much Frank!

  • We found Frank based on the venue's recommendation, and aren't we glad we picked him as our officiant! I admit we were unsure at first, we first contacted Frank 8 months out, so there were long silences in between, and given all the details of a wedding, a thing or two were forgotten, but, oh boy, on the wedding day, Frank was spectacular, even more than we had ever hoped! He was funny, charming, professional, and very detailed. Since we have quite a few non-English speakers, we did not retain his service for reception, but he stayed around and helped us out all night. Our only little complains are he is very popular, so don't expect he is always available or respond right away, but this is as expected during peak wedding season.

    Thank you again Leo and Agnes for inviting me to join you for dinner. I had a great time working with you on your wedding day celebration.

  • Frank Harlan was a fabulous officiant. He heard our vision for our ceremony and really made it come true. It was personalized to us, very moving and quite funny at times. Franks background in performing arts made for some great alterations to the "traditional" ceremony staging. For example, much of the ceremony we were facing our guests, allowing them to see and hear everything that was happening, and allowing us to see and interact with them. Also, on the day of the wedding, Frank was a wonderful support, keeping people on track, up beat, and organized. He made the day fun and unique, just the way we wanted it. I highly reccomend him for his services, especially for those who have unique/creative ideas for the day! Frank is super flexible, and really shows his care and passion for your big day.

  • Frank is awesome. My only complaint is that he mis-pronounced our last name, repeatedly, even after being corrected. Such is life with an unusual last name, but still, it is kinda important. He was very personable and brings a great touch.

    Since there is no one's name on this review and after looking over my wedding calendar from June and July of 2013. I do not know who this could be. I take pride in saying names correctly and if someone's name is tough to say, I will ask to have it repeated aloud to me until I can grasp the proper pronunciation. So sorry if I disappointed you in any way.

  • Frank did an *amazing* job as the officiant at our wedding (March 2015). Here's a few things we loved about working with Frank: - When we first met with Frank he took over an hour to clearly and completely explain his approach to weddings. He showed us his (very detailed) script and walked us through his wedding philosophy. It was reassuring to see how well-planned Frank's ceremonies are. - We wanted a non-religious ceremony that wasn't just the usual script without the word 'God' in it. Frank created a meaningful, moving ceremony based on who we are that was in no means generic. It was very special and we got a lot of compliments from guests on how they had never seen anything like it, how much they enjoyed it, and how much it reflected us. - Frank is really thoughtful and considered when creating his script. He thinks about how to include the audience (via their participation) and how to arrange the wedding party so the guests can see them (and the photographers get grea... Read more
