Kind Words...
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! For everything! Being so helpful & kind during the planning process, keeping me calm before the ceremony, helping us with our lost license, and of course, the most beautiful & heartfelt wedding ceremony EVER! Our guests are still talking about, and tearing up over how personal and perfect the ceremony was for us. You really gave us our dream wedding!"
Dani & Sean
"There are no words to express our gratitude to you for our wedding. At first we thought it was just going to be the same-old-same-old that we'd seen at everybody else's weddings, but you changed all that! All of the options & ideas you gave us let us put "us" into our wedding and our ceremony was just perfect!"
Kelly & Rob
"What can we say - you just rocked! We loved our ceremony & all our guests did too. It was the best wedding we have ever been to, not that we're biased or anything LOL!"

"Thank you so, so much! You did such an amazing job officiating our wedding ceremony and we couldn't imagine our special day without you. The ceremony you wrote for us was so special & you touched both of our hearts so deeply. It embodied everything we are & everything we believe in. Many of our guests commented it was the most beautiful ceremony they'd ever attended, and we, of course, agree - thank you!! Also, it meant so much to us that you went out of your way to find aspen seedlings for our seedling ceremony. We sure were panicked and you saved the day!!

We are incredibly grateful for you & te amazing ceremony & memories you have given us!!"

"Our family would like to thank you so very much for officiating at Josh and Jenna's wedding and for doing such a beautiful and meaningful ceremony for them. You captured the essesence of their relationship and story and it was so very lovely. Your sincerity and care with the wording, the progression of the ceremony, the graciousness with which you handled everything and everyone made it a very memorable and beautiful event for us and for them. We truly appreciate all of your care.
Thank you too for your understanding and handling of the less than perfect rehearsal. That day was a bit of a nightmare for Jenna (and for us) and thankfully, the wedding itself went off without a hitch and was honestly everything we all hoped it would be.
Thank you again so much for your part in it and for making the day so special for us all."

You made it so easy and so much fun to plan our ceremony and it turned out perfect."
