Francis was very attentive and professional! He is so easy to work with and I would definitely recommend him to any of my friends or family. He created a personal and thoughtful ceremony for us that we only did minor changes too! He is very open and listens to how you want your ceremony to feel!

Francis was great to work with. We wanted to have somewhat non-cookie-cutter vows without having to spend a lot of time and effort working on writing our own from scratch during a very busy time. Francis gave us a lot of options and helped work with us to create a ceremony that we both were very happy with. We also really appreciated how he adjusted the speed of the ceremony to help get us out of the heat without skipping over anything. (It was so hot!) We got a lot of comments after the ceremony from our guests about how much they enjoyed the personal story and how it was a nice touch that they were glad we included, so I would recommend the personal story option from him as well. I thought it was a little embarrassing (our story) but it ended up being pretty cute and I was glad we chose to include it. He was very accommodating and met us in a coffee shop to have a small chat to get to know him before we chose to go with him. Very glad we chose Francis. He was also able to attend our rehearsal dinner, which was very helpful (two days before the ceremony.)

My husband and I loved working with Francis throughout our wedding planing process. He was very kind, patient (with our many revisions) and understanding when it came to what we want and what we do not want to include in our ceremony. He made sure our day was all about us, and not what is usually done or supposed to be done. After the ceremony we've received so many compliments from our guests about how great of a speaker Francis was and how much they loved his personal approach to our ceremony. We highly suggest Francis to all of our friends and now you! Happy planning :)

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed having Francis officiate our wedding! We were looking for a fairly non-religious officiant & Francis was absolutely the perfect find. He did such an amazing job tailoring our ceremony to us specifically, spending the time to get to know us so he could include funny & sweet stories in the ceremony to make it unique & really special. Communication leading up to the day was great, Francis even came to the rehearsal dinner to help orchestrate, and was so easy going on the day-of, even when the inevitable curve-balls sprang up. We received so many compliments on how sweet, touching, and fun the whole thing was that I couldn't be any happier. Francis is great & I would recommend him to anyone looking for an Officiant.

Francis Lee was terrific to work with! He was very warm and open to whatever kind of ceremony we were thinking about having. He worked with us on our extremely tight schedule (we probably hired him a month before the wedding date) to put together a ceremony that was fun and very us. Many of our guests came up to us after the ceremony and commented on how amazing he was and asking where we found him. I highly recommend Francis - he was prompt, funny, and really open to whatever type of wedding you want to have!

Francis was so wonderful to work with from the start thru the day of the wedding. He was professional and he "got" us from the very beginning. We wanted a ceremony that wasn't too stuffy or formal, but just the right amount of sentimental. He hit all points perfectly. We got the perfect ceremony for us, and several guests came up to us and complimented Francis and how it was the right amount of funny and sweet. I would highly recommend working with Francis!

Francis was a 10/10. He was the first officiant we met with, and we knew he was going to be a great fit for us. Everyone at our ceremony loved him, and he offered such a great, personalized ceremony that was exactly what we had hoped for. Also - Francis is maybe the best deal in all of Seattle. Thank you Francis!
