Chaplain Dr. Fred W. Patterson: Knoxville, TN and surrounding areas (many beautiful mountain, or lake-side settings): Your wedding day is one of the most significant days of your life. My goal is to work with you to create a wonderful ceremony that reflects your ideas, values and beliefs. It can be simple or extravagant. The service can be officiated in formal wear (robe or tuxedo), casual clothing or any other specific attire appropriate for the occasion and location. Chaplain Patterson is non-denominational and non-judgmental. He has the greatest respect for the traditions of marriage and offers pre-marital counseling. Read less

After meeting Fred and Irene for the first time we knew right away that they were the perfect pick to be a part of our special day. They were so personable and we felt like we knew them for years already! Fred gave us an amazing ceremony and we had so many compliments on how beautiful it was. Everything was perfect! He customized everything to what we were looking for and we wouldn't have changed anything! If you are looking for an officiant you have came to the right place.

While my husband and I were looking for an officiant for our wedding, I was very nervous. We have a one year old son, and I was anxious that some officiants would not be accepting of this, as we were obviously not married when we had him. However, Chaplin Patterson was very welcoming, open-minded, and accepting. He was the absolute perfect choice as our wedding officiant. He responded to us in a timely manner, and met with us at a time that was convinient for us. He & his wife were very professional and easy to work with. They offered suggestions but were not overbearring in any way. I am very thankful we chose Chaplain Patterson and would recommend his services to anyone needing an officiant for their wedding. I have recieved so many compliments on our unique, heartfelt ceremony. I highly suggest his services!

Dr. Chaplain did an absolutely amazing job for our wedding. He & his wife are both very kind and wonderful people. He made our wedding ceremony very personal and special. We just fell in love with Dr. Chaplain and his lovely wife. He was more than willing to plan our wedding ceremony to meet our specific needs and requests. I have to say the service was very spritual and represented our love for one another. He is very professional and made us both feel very comfortable from the first time we met. My husband and I both highly recommend Dr. Patterson, you will not be disappointed!!

Dr. Patterson is great! The ceremony for our wedding was beautifully written and well spoken. Dr. Patterson and his wife, Irene, were very warm and helpful throughout the whole wedding day as well as the weeks leading up to it. My husband and I were very glad we chose Fred to be a part of our special day (the legal part) :) Many of our wedding guest were also very complementary of Dr. Patterson.

My wife and I were blessed to find Chaplain Patterson through Weddingwire.com. We were both nervous at first since we were planning a wedding that was a good distance away from us and were having to book a venue and officiant that we hadn't previously met. Chaplain Patterson was quick to get back with us and was enthusiastic about getting to meet us prior to our wedding. We met with him and his wife at a Starbucks and had a great conversation. In no time, it was like we had known them for years. He did a great job working with us being states away and was very understanding to our requests. He wrote a very personal ceremony that touched everyone and also caused a few chuckles. His wife was a very caring lady and acted as our wedding planner which we were very thankful for. We are so happy that we were able to have him as our officiant and would gladly recommend him to anyone.

My husband and I cannot begin to say how thrilled we are that we chose Chaplain Patterson to be our officiant. The first time we met Fred and his wife Irene was at a local Starbucks. My fiance and I talked about ourselves, our relationship and small details of the wedding. We instantly clicked with Chaplain and he made us feel so at ease. He let us know that he was very flexible with how the ceremony was constructed and we could make any changes that we wished. When we walked away from that meeting, my fiance and I looked at eachother and said "yes" without discussing anything further. We knew Fred was the perfect fit for us. When we received the first draft of our ceremony I sat and cried. It was perfect. There were a couple of pieces that we asked to be switched out (for example: we asked for a less Christian based prayer, more spiritual in nature) and Chaplain came back with perfect changes. We went through one revision and we were so happy with the second draft that no other changes were made. On the wedding day, Chaplain was social with our friends and family, and he made sure to come check on me and my husband at different points during the day. The ceremony was beautiful...people were laughing and in tears. Our friends and family had SO many good things to say about Chaplain Patterson and we couldn't agree more! Chaplain took our views and beliefs and our love for each other and created the most perfect ceremony we could have asked for.

We used Chaplain Patterson for our wedding this April, I have nothing but great things to say about him. A wedding can be sooo full of anxieties and it can be difficult to find venders in which you can trust and not worry if they are going to come thru... not this one! We was professional, Very nice and every email I sent he would get back with me within 24 hours. I did not have to worry about a thing when it came to Chaplain Petterson! I would highly suggest him to anyone! I just wish everyone was as great as him at handling business and professionalism. Pick him for your wedding! :)

A wedding can be sooo full of anxieties and it can be difficult to find venders in which you can trust and not worry if they are going to come thru... not this one! We was professional, Very nice and every email I sent he would get back with me within 24 hours. I did not have to worry about a thing when it came to Chaplain Petterson! I would highly suggest him to anyone! I just wish everyone was as great as him at handling business and professionalism. Pick him for your wedding! :) Read less

Chaplain Patterson was amazing. He worked with us via email to develop the ceremony that we envisioned for our family. He was extremely responsive and easy to work with. The ceremony he developed was beautiful and captured the needs of our blended family. He was calm and centered, which helped us relax and enjoy our day. His wife attended the ceremony with him and took some lovely pictures, which they provided to us.

We highly recommend him!

Finding the right officiant was one of the most challenging aspects of planning my wedding. I looked for many days before finding Chaplain Patterson. I was definitely getting frustrated. However, Chaplain Patterson and his wife Irene were absolutely lovely. They met with with my fiance and I beforehand to let us get to know them before we hired them. We loved them right away! They are extremely genuine, caring, and will do whatever type of ceremony you like. They are professional, but not stiff or rigid. All of my family and friends who met them were also extremely impressed.

We highly recommend Chaplain Patterson! You will be very happy if you use him!

Chaplain Patterson and his wife, Irene, were absolutely amazing to work with for our wedding. Less than 15 minutes after our initial meeting with them, my husband (at the time fiance) and I decided that we wanted Chaplain Patterson to officiate our ceremony. While we were unable to do the pre-marital counseling due to our schedule, we exchanged several emails and had another face to face meeting before our wedding. We discussed having a Christian ceremony that wasn't overly religious; we wanted it to be intimate and laid back--not pretentious or overly formal. Based on this criteria, he delivered a complete ceremony outline that fit the bill exactly. When you're planning a wedding, it's such a relief to have this one task taken off your plate. We received many compliments from our guests about how the ceremony was touching, intimate and heartfelt. I felt Chaplain Patterson's delivery was both professional and at times humorous, and he was eloquent in speech. I cannot speak highly enough of Irene and Chaplain Patterson. They are genuinely sweet and kind-hearted people. I highly recommend them to any couple looking for an officiant for their wedding.

My husband and I can't say enough good things about Chaplain Patterson and the beautiful ceremony he performed for us. After reading so many great reviews, I contacted him to get more information. He always responded to me quickly and was so helpful with any questions. The day of the wedding, Chaplain Patterson and his wife Irene were so friendly and they made my husband and I feel so comfortable and relaxed. She even took pictures during the ceremony and after! The way he performed our ceremony, from the prayers to the vows, reflected our values and beliefs as a couple perfectly. There is a reason that Chaplain Patterson has so many good reviews. We highly recommend him!

My husband is American-German and I am from Venezuela, so we needed to find an officiant willing to say some of the ceremony in Spanish, so my family could be integrated somehow, but it was incredibly difficult to find somebody at the Knoxville area.
I saw a review of Dr. Patterson, where he performed a ceremony in Spanish and we decided to get in touch with him. He explained to us that he wasn't fluent in Spanish but he could do some reading in the language to help us out. We decided to go with him and the result was outstanding. Only part some prayers were in Spanish (my husband is not fluent in Spanish either so we needed to have the main things in English) and my family was super excited!
Also, I was living in Caracas and my husband in Germany previous to the wedding, so planning everything required a lot of flexibility that he also offered to us. We shaped our ceremony the way we dreamed of it and most of our guests told us later that it was beautiful and touching. Many of them cry of happiness with us!
He printed Spanish and English copies of the program that were way beyond my husband and I expected.
His wife is very nice and kind and helps him out too with pictures and calming our nerves.

Back in May my husband and I married during an incredibly stressful time in our lives. Because we intended to move out of the country a few weeks after the wedding, I began my wedding plans in August. Throughout the months prior to the wedding, Chaplain Patterson kept in touch without me having to call and worry. I felt assured that I had selected the best officiant that I could and surely enough, the wedding was performed beautifully.
Dr. Patterson previewed the material for the ceremony and even met with me at Starbucks a couple times to discuss our desires for the wedding. Due to his efforts, my stress was reduced tremendously.
Chaplain Patterson is a very nice man and I now consider him and his wife Ireen as new dear friends. I stumbled across his name on Weddingwire and so glad I did. Anyone who choses Chaplain Patterson for their ceremony will not find disappointment. Good luck in your planning.

He and his wife did everything possible to make sure we were comfortable, informed, and prepared for our wedding day. They went above and beyond our expectations for an officiant and we felt they truly cared about our well-being as a married couple well beyond our wedding day. He was able to connect with us and make our ceremony truly special and individual to us. We couldn't have asked for better

Chaplain Patterson was great! He was very helpful in the planning of our ceremony, and very receptive to our ideas. He made the entire process very easy for us. The ceremony itself was amazing! He arrived early and gave us a few helpful hints that really put us at ease during the ceremony. He delivered a very heartfelt service, and rolled with the punches with a great sense of humor (as I struggled to squeeze my husbands ring onto his finger). Everything was absolutely wonderful. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the East Tennessee area in need of an officiant.

She took some amazing pictures and was so sweet and creative in our poses. Chaplain Patterson had a talk with my now husband and myself before the ceremony. He said some things to us that we really appreciated. He gave us wonderful advice and a wonderful ceremony. Not only is he wonderful to work with, he has a pleasant voice that makes the ceremony that much better. It was the best day of my whole life! I look forward to keeping in touch with them. They are the kind of people that treat you like family no matter what. So sweet! If you are searching for an officiant stop now and give him a call! You will not regret it, I promise.

After our first meeting with Chaplain Patterson and his wife we were so pleased. They were wonderful. He wrote a beautiful ceremony for us that was traditional but not typical. Several of our guests complemented the ceremony, and what a great job Chaplain Patterson did. He and his wife were very professional, yet extremely personable and warm.
I highly recommend Chaplain Patterson. We are so glad that we found him! I would definitely call on him again (Sorry Dr. Patterson - No plans for a second husband...yet! lol).

Chaplin Patterson was simply amazing! I had quite a unique problem as I met my husband while I was serving in the Peace Corps in Guatemala and he didn't speak any English at all. So we obviously wanted at least some of our ceremony to be done in Spanish. However, as I began looking for someone to officiate our wedding, it seemed that there were no bilingual offiants in the area. So, in a last ditch effort, I emailed some officants asking if they knew anyone who could possibly do our wedding for us and as I was sorting through the sea of "No's", there was one email from Chaplin Patterson saying that while he was by no means bilingual, he has a little experience with Spanish and would be willing to learn enough to be able to do our ceremony. I was elated. We immediately begin to craft a ceremony to incorporate both mine and my husbands cultures and when the big day finally arrived, the ceremony was everything I dreamed it would be. If you are looking for someone to officiate your ceremony, stop your search here. You will find no one more corteous, professional, helpful, and friendly then Chaplin Patterson!

If you are looking for someone to officiate your ceremony, stop your search here. You will find no one more corteous, professional, helpful, and friendly then Chaplin Patterson! Read less

Dr. Patterson was absolutely wonderful! We were able to meet with him and explain exactly what we wanted for our ceremony and he accommodated perfectly. He arrived early, was extremely professional and performed our ceremony to perfection. We could not have been happier with our service. His wife and him are kind, caring, funny and sweet people and we were honored to have them be part of our day. We will use him again for our renewal ceremony and refer him to everyone we know. Thank you!!!

Chaplain Patterson has helped me and my husband to organize our wedding ceremony in a perfect way. Our wedding took place in Orangery in Knoxville, TN and Chaplain Patterson along with his wife made our most important event so far flawless. We were getting worried that we could not find a trusted minister way before the wedding day. So, may be around 3 weeks before the wedding, we contacted Dr. Patterson and got an immediate response with all the information that we needed and wanted to know. We met with him and his wife to share our story at Starbucks one day. His undivided attention was ours for as long as the story went. He wanted to create a ceremony that would be totally personalized and written about us - me and my husband. Since I am not an American native speaking bride - Chaplain Patterson added several lines that would include my non English-speaking parents into the ceremony. Besides that for the rehearsal he brought Russian translation of the ceremony for my parents!! That was absolutely amazing - my parents were very happy! The ceremony went very well - we rehearsed until it was perfect and clicked. Mrs. Patterson has been so helpful and sweet too - I totally forgot about my bouquet during the ceremony and was about to walk down the aisle without my flowers!!! She got it! I am so so thankful that she was there and with her experienced eye caught the flaw and prevented awkwardness during the ceremony!!! Thank you, thank you, so so much! After the ceremony Chaplain Patterson took care of all the paperwork associated with the marriage, so we could take a little time to ourselves and enjoy the video we received from him with a glass of wine :) Thank you, we are so happy!

Chaplain Patterson did a fantastic job officiating our wedding in October 2011. He crafted a ceremony that fit us so perfectly, we did not need to change one word of what he wrote! He was professional, personable, and made our ceremony unforgettable. We received lots of compliments from our guests regarding the beautiful ceremony he created. His sweet wife even helped us with the rehearsal and made sure the entrance of our bridal party went smoothly at the wedding. We were from out of town, and were nervous about finding an officiant who could fit "us". We could not be happier with our choice, and I would HIGHLY recommend Chaplain Patterson to anyone!

Not only did Dr. Patterson make our day special and unique, but he also made a big impact with all of our guests. The ceremony was indeed a blessing from Above and we cannot thank Dr. Patterson enough for making the ceremony so wonderful. A family friend told David and I how every word he said is what marriage was all about and added, "...It was the most beautiful ceremony I've ever heard." We couldn't have asked for a better and more personalized ceremony. He is simply the best!!!

Chaplain Patterson was above and beyond what we were looking for! The minute that we met him, I knew he was the one that would marry us! I’m new to the Knoxville area so we do not have a church that we attend on a regular basis and was worried that we would not find the right offciant/minister that we felt comfortable with... So not the case with Mr. Patterson! He made the planning part of our vows very simple and easy! Eric and I are very simple and didn’t want anything extravagant and time consuming... Straight and to the point... And that’s exactly what Mr. Patterson gave us! The one thing that i really enjoyed along with all of my guest was the verse about "these are the hands of your best friend" Everyone absolutely loved that! I had more people tell me that they loved that part of the ceremony and they had never heard it before! Our day was simply perfect and I could not have asked for anything more! The vows are the most important part of your wedding... not the cake, food or flowers but the VOWS, and Mr. Patterson made that perfect! Thank you Chaplain Patterson for making our day everything that we dreamed of!

The maid of honor had dropped the grooms ring just moments before the wedding was to start, all our guests along with him and his wife walked back and forth trying to find it! Anyone who is willing to do that, is a very special person!

Chaplain Patterson did a great job as our wedding officiant. We live in South Carolina, so planning a wedding from afar was difficult at times but never when it came to working with him. He was quick to respond to emails, let us add our own special parts to the ceremony, and followed through with everything he said he'd do. He was extremely flexible and relaxed, especially when we forgot a few important documents right before the ceremony! Chaplain Patterson is someone I would definitely recommend to any in or out of town brides who want one less thing to worry about when it comes to wedding planning! -Katie and Matt

He was professional and responsive during the six months of planning. He performed our wedding with grace on an extremely hot day and was able to provide handkerchiefs to the bride and the groom in a tearful moment of crisis. I could not have asked for more in an officiant. It is my pleasure to highly recommend Chaplain Patterson. He and his lovely wife make an amazing team.

We can't express how wonderful Chaplain Patterson is. He was there for anything we needed and went over and beyond what we ever expected him to do. Both Chaplain Patterson and his wife are wonderful and sweet people. He was at the rehearsal and the wedding in plenty of time, was there to answer any questions we had, did an outstanding ceremony and we couldn't be happier with him as a person. They are there to help and will do anything they can possibly do to keep the stress levels down for you. He wanted to make sure that we knew it was our day and that he would do anything we wanted him to do because it was our day...not his. That is truly amazing! Everyone at the wedding had great compliments on both Chaplain Patterson and his wife and were very pleased with both of them. We would recommend him to any of our friends and family. We are truly blessed to have found such great people to share our special day with. It is really hard to find great people out there, but if you decide to use Chaplain Patterson, please know, you will not regret it, I know we never will!!
Thank you!!

Chaplain Patterson and his wife would not have done a better job at our wedding! My husband and I got married June 18th of this year they just added to make our day so very special! I have nothing but great things to say about my experience working with the Pattersons. We were in need of an officiant for our outdoors location and did not know an officiant that did weddings outside of their church. Seeing that our wedding was in the middle of June it was hard to find an officiant because of the busy wedding season. I came across Chaplain Patterson on a wedding website and everything just fell into place. Would recommend to anyone and everyone!!!

Chaplain Patterson was a wonderful addition to our wedding day! When looking for an officiant my husband and I were not sure where to start. We were not getting married in a church and had not been raised in the same church. From the first response, Chaplain Patterson made us feel very comfortable. We had not yet met, but he made us feel at ease. We had found the person who was going to marry us!

The ceremony was perfect for us. Chaplain Patterson emailed it to us early so we could go over it and make any changes, but it suited us and our relationship very well. He did a wonderful job communicating through email with us, and would offer to help in any way.

He and his wife were wonderful at the rehearsal. They were so polite, happy, and patient (it was hot and my family was late!). I was the bride and the wedding day coordinator, but with the help and experience that Chaplain Patterson and his wife had the rehearsal ran very smoothly and I knew our ceremony would be perfect!

Our ceremony was amazing! Caught up in the moment it felt like there were only three people there, my husband, Chaplain Patterson, and myself. It felt so perfect. We were so happy to have him share in our wedding.

When I started the journey of finding someone to marry us, I would not have thought that the person I found on the internet would have such a lasting impression on me, my husband, and our marriage. Chaplain Patterson made us feel so comfortable and at ease. His emails were a great reminder that we were getting married not just having a wedding. So many vendors can be a lot of work, but Chaplain Patterson was not. We knew that we could count on him.

I feel like we have found someone that we want to keep in our lives. He helped to make this happy day in our lives perfect! I feel like if ever I have a question I could still contact him now. We are happy to have found him and look forward to keeping him in our lives.

We had no idea who we would use as an officiant for our ceremony and were looking for someone to give us some spiritual direction as well as conduct our pre-marital counseling. Dr. Patterson worked around our schedule and really made us feel at home during our counseling sessions. He responded quickly to any questions we had and provided great reading materials and guidance during our marriage counseling sessions. We felt right at home with both he and his wife. He even wrote out our ceremony ahead of time and allowed us to make changes and recommendations. I would recommend Dr. Patterson to anyone who is looking for an officiant who is diligent, caring, responsive and flexible. Thanks so much for making our day so special and for the guidance you provided us in the weeks leading up to our wedding day.

I hope when everyone reads this that they will stop their search for an Officiant. Chaplain Patterson was there every step of the way for us! Unfortunately on the night of our Reception Dinner, we had a family emergency and Chaplain Patterson went to the hospital and stayed with us as long as we needed. He didn't have to stay, but showed such compassion and empathy my family will never forget. He is one of the kindest people my family and I have ever encountered. He opened our Wedding with a beautiful prayer for my husband's Grandma, who had the Medical Emergency and made the entire ceremony family involved and very special. This is a very gifted and caring man and anyone that decides to hire him will always remember how they were treated and how he and his wife radiate kindness.
Chaplain Patterson made our Wedding and thereafter a very special and unforgettable time. We are SO glad we chose Chaplain Patterson and that he chose to help us! Him and his wife Irene are such an amazing couple and their love shined through their work. Their teamwork made me feel at ease and know that I was in great hands. The service and dedication he showed me and my family is something we will never forget.

Dr. Patterson and his wife were wonderful! The type of service we requested was followed to the letter with no hesitation. Being from out of state, we were so fortunate to find someone who was so professional and at the same time made us feel like we were with family. The extra touches they provided were so appreciated, along with the photos and dvd of our wedding. My husband and I felt we had a great start to a great future. We would highly recommend Dr. Patterson as officiant for any wedding!

Joseph and I had lived together for 8 1/2 years when we decided, with the encouragement and blessing of our children, that it was time to make our commitment official. We arranged for an officiant and photographer to meet us at the Biltmore Estate. We went and got our TN marriage license right before the county clerk's office closed for Christmas break, and then realized, uh-oh, the Biltmore is actually in North Carolina!

Plan B: Joe went online and, by chance, got a hold of Chaplain Patterson's wife, Irene. This was on Friday, Christmas Eve, with plans to marry that day or the next! We received a call back from Chaplain Patterson indicating that he could marry us on Christmas Day, and Irene could provide the photography! Hallelujah!

Overnight, we received another unexpected gift! It began to snow on Christmas Day, just in time for our outdoor ceremony! Chaplain Patterson accommodated a last minute change in time from 11 am to 1:30 pm and drove over an hour in snowy weather to marry us on Christmas Day!! He and his lovely wife, Irene, took some of the most beautifully framed photographs I have ever seen! Their photography was spot on! Within days, they had not only mailed us a CD containing all of the photos, but printed them out as well!

Service of this kind is Best In Class! Chaplain Patterson stayed in constant contact with us and was obviously flexible, accommodating us with less than 24 hours notice! He and his wife are a warm loving couple who work fantastic together!

We plan on calling them in the future! We would like to fly them wherever we have a wedding bash, whenever we renew our vows and anytime we want a fantastic family photo! We highly recommend them!

Abundantly Grateful,

Joseph and Michelle Jones (married December 25, 2010)
