Here is what one couple
recently had to say :
Andrew and I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful
job you did with our ceremony. We received so many
compliments, not only on how beautiful the ceremony
was, but also on how well you conducted it. People,
ourselves included, were very impressed with the
gentle manner in which you spoke and the whole flow of
the ceremony. We couldn't have been happier with the
Andrew and I really enjoyed
making the ceremony
uniquely ours. You had such wonderful material for us
to sift through and the hardest part was cutting stuff
out. There were so many beautifully worded sentiments
that we could have used but we eventually narrowed it
down to that which we both felt embodied our mutual
thoughts and feelings best. Andrew and I are not
religious, yet still enjoy tradition and wanted to
bring in a spiritual aspect for our wedding. This left
us questioning where to begin but once we met with you
and saw your beautiful material, we knew we'd made the
right decision and that we would be able to integrate
all that we felt for each other without having to
incorporate that which did not fit with our beliefs.
We thank you for a beautiful ceremony that we will
remember and cherish forever. Thank you for working so
closely with us and for your thoughtful additions to
the ceremony. Your quick response time was also
greatly appreciated as it meant that even if we did
not get things off to you quickly, that once we did we
would receive immediate feedback.
Thanks for a wonderful, priceless experience and we
wish you only the best.
