Folktale Winery in Carmel Valley


I could not have dreamed of a more perfect officiant for our wedding!
We had an intimate wedding of 25 guests at Folktale Winery in Carmel
Valley. Every step of the way, Fr. Francis Duda was patient,
warm-hearted, and very accommodating with us.

We discussed our wedding at length together over a coffee. He took the
time to get to know us and our story as a couple.  After our meeting,
he promptly followed up with an email of several versions of potential
ceremonies for us to review.

The day of our rehearsal, he was well-prepared and thoroughly walked
us through the whole ceremony. The day of our wedding, Fr. Duda was a
pillar of strength and the utmost professional. He had such a calming
presence and with poise and humor, guided us through the whole

We cannot thank him enough for making our wedding so special!
