Welcome

Conducting non-denominational and religious ceremonies. Mark wants you to know that his philosophy is to help make your special day something both you and your guests will remember forever. He is committed to making your day as special as possible.

He has been involved in the marriage ministry in the Lake Tahoe/Reno area for over 25 years. He understands the importance of the institution of marriage, how important that special day is to the couple, and how important it is for the couple to choose the right officiant for their wedding ceremony. Mark's combination of spiritual guidance and sense of humor will bring a uniqueness to your event that you and your guests will remember forever. Contact Mark and schedule an appointment to FaceTime or Skype with him today. (775) 721-9016 Reverend.Mark.Frady@gmail.com

About Mark

If you need him to travel to you, he is available … if you need him to meet you at the top of the mountain, he is available … if you need him to marry you on the beach, he is available.

Reverend Mark (please just call him Mark) says of his relationship to brides and grooms: “I think it is extremely important for your wedding officiant to get to know the couple and to take a personal part of their wedding day”.

Mark has been a member of a Christian church (The Fountainhead) in Carson City, Nevada for 30 years. He can perform any Christian, civil or non-denominational marriage in the State of California and the State of Nevada, both of which have issued him “permission” to perform marriages in their respective states.

Mark has been married to his wife and best friend, Carla, for over 40 years, and they have 3 children, 10 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Don’t think that that has made him old…he is very young at heart and in mind.

Services & Specialties

You will find Marks’ list of services to be a lot different than most ministers. Included are any of the following that you wish to include:

  • all introductory meetings, either in person, by phone, Skype or FaceTime
  • an eight week Marriage Enrichment class, either in person in Carson City, or by webinar,
  • a pre-rehearsal meeting with you and your fiancé,
  • the presiding over your rehearsal, based on your instructions,
  • the presiding over your ceremony, with prior input from the two of you,
  • a framed souvenir copy of your marriage license,
  • a booklet copy of your ceremony, and a copy for your parents
  • and possibly most important, free marriage counseling for life. I check in with you every year on the anniversary of your wedding, and see how you are doing. If you need me to meet with the two of you, I am available.

I think it is important to meet with a couple to get to know them, and for them to get to know me, before we ever sign a contract. At that initial meeting, I begin to get a feel for what kind of ceremony you will want. If you decide to invite me to perform your ceremony, I go back and write your ceremony. I email you a copy and you are allowed to make any changes that you would like to make. I personally like to blend seriousness, spirituality and humor, but it is your ceremony, so it is your decision how it should be conducted.

So, you are not just getting the best minister in the whole world (possibly an exaggeration) but you are enlisting the help of someone who cares about you and about your future as a couple. I like for a special bond to develop between the three of us, and to be there for you when you need me … not just to show up on the day of your wedding, and then drive off and leave you to the whims of your environment, be it good or bad.
