There no question that you each want the covenant you make to be intensely intimate. All of the days, and weeks, and maybe even years invested planning for this day will distill into a precious handful of minutes during which you will exchange with one another a promise whose deepest intent is that this bonding, this uniting, this "marriage" will be stronger, and last longer, than any other commitment that, as a couple, you will ever make during your entire lifetime.

And a significant need to be satisfied is to have everyone present, all those who have contributed so richly to your lives, share and indeed feel your life-altering rite because your ceremony speaks to them. The words, and the delivery of those words, combine to reflect your new and wonderful essence. Each witness comes away believing "That was them!"

Results like these don't just happen. They are a result of planning, of an investment of time and effort, of a professional execution...all skills learned during years of practical application. Experience. There simply is no substitute.

Share your dreams with me. Together, we'll make them come true.

I loved using We Are Gathered for our ceremony officiant. There were a lot of obstacles that could have deterred us from having the ceremony of our dreams. My husband is catholic and I'm non-denominational and we wanted our wedding to be on a Sunday. Reverend Fred helped us create a beautiful catholic ceremony that spoke to both of us and our families. We even incorporated Polish tradition of salted bread and wine into our ceremony which was very special to my new mother in law. I am so happy and blessed that Reverend Fred could help us make our day so much more special. I couldn't imagine having a wedding that didn't resemble my husband and I, and I'm happy that I didn't have to settle. I wouldn't change a thing about my ceremony and I will forever be grateful and honored that Reverend Fred was a part of it.

Wow, Alyssa! Thank you! It's true that some unique opportunities presented themselves but guidance is part of the value I contributed to your wedding day. And, I just must say that from the first moment that I met each of your families members, I was made to feel not only comfortable and accepted but integrated into the dynamics that contributed your wedding. Kris' Father being able to attend was a gift from God...for everyone. Including a traditional "salt and bread" ceremony was a magnificent honoring of your parents. Alyssa, I am the one who was blessed by being a part of your wedding day. I pray that each of you, and all of you, are blessed with God's deepest love every moment for eternity.

Reverend Frederick Jolicoeur was truly a gift from heaven!
From our initial meeting, through the customization of our wedding ceremony and vows, the rehearsal and finally the big day, Reverend Fred was an absolute delight.
His many years of experience combined with his wonderful demeanor made the whole process a real pleasure.
A true professional in every sense of the term, Reverend Fred made our wedding ceremony a day to remember. There are many options out there but if you are looking for the best, there’s only one that I would recommend, Reverend Fred!

"JOHN and AMY, remember always that the purpose of marriage is to respond in love…to offer gentleness…to forgive…to nurture…and to support and encourage one another." This excerpt from your wedding ceremony, which speaks to the purpose of marriage, has always been, is, and will always be so. I believe, with every fiber of my being, that each of you take these tenants to heart and that your marriage will be successful. John, thank you for expressing so eloquently your observations, your experience, and every bit as important, your feelings about how we three, together, developed a covenant between you that will last a lifetime. I am blessed to have been a part of those moments in your lives. Thank you. Reverend Fred & Sheila

Hello, Melissa and Jeff! :-) We really did have a personal connection, didn't we? And, I wouldn't have had it either way! I'm especially glad that I was at the rehearsal with you. Whenever a rehearsal is performed offsite it is difficult. Having one in the middle of a restaurant floor is cause for stress and anxiety. :-( As it turned out, the people in your wedding party had prior experience. At the wedding, everything went great! Thanks for allowing me to get to know you both and for letting me be a part of your wonderful, exciting day! Reverend Fred

Hello, Spouse of the other "Private User"! ;-) In your review the most important part of our combined efforts is the ceremony itself. When you both, together, decided that we should move forward with the development of your wedding ceremony, I promised that we wouldn't stop reviewing and re-writing until you looked at me and said "That's exactly what I want my ceremony to represent." Your comments say that I delivered on my promise. I feel so gratified that you think so. Thank you so much! Reverend Fred

Hiya' Private User! I really appreciate your succinct review! I'm especially pleased that you were specific in your comment about "planning" and "execution". It's clear that these attributes are just as important to you as my ability to, with your involvement, create the perfect wedding ceremony. Obviously, they are to me as well. Thanks! Reverend Fred

Kevin, it was an amazing night, wasn't it? I had never pictured you as being nervous. It was very cool, though, when it became evident. Every bit as apparent was how much you and Stephanie love one another. Being part of your day, made my day. Thank you for that..and for giving me the opportunity. Kevin and Stephanie, may the blessings of God be yours always! Reverend Fred and Sheila

Although it was an investment to have Reverend Fred customize our ceremony, it was so worthwhile. He was kind, patient and very flexible. I enjoyed the sooth of his voice as he performed the ceremony and we had so many compliments on how lovely the words and prayers were.

Stephanie, the creative process that resulted in your ceremony was, in large part, a result of the efforts made by you and Kevin in concert with me. To say that I couldn't have done it without you is an understatement. With regard to your implication that investment and value can go hand in hand, I fully concur. It's been my experience that while the English proverb "You get what you pay for." is not always true, it usually is. The first question that should be asked and answered is"What level of quality am I willing to accept?" and then, proceed form there. That's exactly what you did. (And, I'm glad, too!) Stephanie, thanks for your kind words...and for selecting me as your "Officiant of Choice". Reverend Fred

Rev. Fred was wonderful and the perfect person to perform our ceremony. We knew that the service was the most important part of the whole day and the personalization he allowed us was wonderful. We were able to have the religious ceremony we wanted but as a Catholic/Presbyterian hybrid, which we wouldn't have been able to do in a church. He was very prompt with making the changes we made along the way - which were many - and the ceremony was perfect for us.

Hi, Renee. :-) Thank you for the positive(ly terrific) review! It was indeed a blessing to create your ceremony with you and Michael. It is so infrequently that I am asked to serve Communion. I'm so grateful to Michael for requesting it be included. Praise God and bless you both! As an aside, I can't wait to see your photos! The Chapel at the Masonic is magnificent! And, being a Mason myself, this venue holds a special place in my heart. All told, Sheila and I thoroughly enjoyed the time we had with you, your families, and your friends. Thank you so much for including us in your precious day. Reverend Fred

Fred provided a beautiful service and blessing! I loved how we were able to customize our own ceremony with Fred's help. He was always very responsive and helpful when we had questions regarding the ceremony or marriage license.

Thank you, Meghan! I enjoyed every minute of the time we invested together to have your ceremony be everything you had hoped for. As an aside, I think that the inclusion of the Chinese "red string" ceremony that Keith and you brought was so thoughtful. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your and Keith's wedding day!
