About Francine

Welcome to Matrimony by Design. My name is Francine DeCicco and I have been serving the wedding industry for over 35 years. Come and meet with me for a free consultation and together we will design a personal ceremony. Specialing in religious to non-denomination, same gender weddings or vow renewals, together we will design and create your perfect ceremony.

Family and Friends have asked me "Why become a reverend now?" I'm about to tell you my story. My mother and father were married for 69 years. My father was her boyfriend since she was 16 years old, her true love Frankie. When my mother was 21 years old, her mother became very ill and was about to pass and she wanted to see my mother married before she did. So my mom and my dad went to court in downtown Brooklyn in 1938. She bought herself a beautiful white wedding dress and had a very very quick ceremony. They rushed to the hospital to tell her mother and she gave them her blessing before she passed. My mother for 69 years always wanted a beautiful ceremony and she never had one. Recently several months ago my mother did pass. Something came to me—a calling if you want to call it—I needed to be and I needed to give that special ceremony to you couples in honor of my parents

Just remember—all you need is love!

Crumbs In My Bra

Hungry person CRUMBS IN MY BRA
I can't sleep at night CRUMBS IN MY BRA
I look like a fright CRUMBS IN MY BRA
We are all on lockdown CRUMBS IN MY BRA
Not doing the town CRUMBS IN MY BRA
Just finished some brunch CRUMBS IN MY BRA
What time is my lunch? CRUMBS IN MY BRA
Can't even touch the mail CRUMBS IN MY BRA
I don't go near the scale CRUMBS IN MY BRA
Hot rollers in hair CRUMBS IN MY BRA
With nowhere to go CRUMBS IN MY BRA
Just walking real slow CRUMBS IN MY BRA
Taking it off for the night; And what do I see?
CRUMBS in my bra falling down like leaves

Betcha didn't know I'm a poet




I am also the author of The Cure for B.M.S. (Bridal Madness Syndrome) written in 2005.


Reverend Francine being interviewed by Dunkin DonutsCorporate for their documentary on Dunkin Donuts weddings.

"Seven years ago Denise and Lowell forgot their wedding application so the next day I invited them to Dunkin Donuts to sign it. Every year they went back to celebrate their anniversary. Dunkin corporate found out. So this year we surprised them by decorating the store. I performed a vow renewal ceremony and ring exchange. "

Now we are part of their documentary.
