Kind Words
The Wedding Pink
It has been my honour to participate in The Wedding Pink Presented by Cheryl Unger Gives, a beautiful wedding donated by local wedding professionals for couples dealing with breast cancer. I am truly humbled by the stories of the couples selected to be awarded a wedding, and the generosity of the wonderful vendors and suppliers who make up The Wedding Pink team for each wedding.

I had the pleasure of joining 2012's winners of the Hitched In The Highlands Race To The Altar, Meg & Drew, in marriage. I love this couple! Their joy and affection for each other comes shining through their faces, and all the images the photographer and videographer captured of them.

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!

All of the options & ideas you gave us let us put "us" into our wedding and our ceremony was just perfect!"
Kelly & Rob​​​​​​​

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!!

"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."

"Thanks so much for our beautiful ceremony! We were so disappointed not to get our dream wedding this year with everyone all together but at least we had our dream officiant for our elopement! With all the craziness and Braydon's job shutting down and us needing to get married anyway you were a light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for letting us pull it together in less than a month and Zoom our families and friends in for our really beautiful and special ceremony. We are excited to do it all over again next year in person!"
Leah-Ann & Braydon

"We are so grateful you were the person we found to marry us. It was so us - so happy and fun! Our minister was the funnest!"
Damon & Clyde

"To put it simply - thank you. We couldn't have done it without you. You took what was a terrible situation for us and our families and turned it into something that was special and unique and a true celebration, even if most of our guests came by technology. Even though it was smaller (much, much smaller!) and nowhere near what our original plan was, we still felt it was everything the start to our marriage should be because of the ceremony you wrote for us and delivered so well."
Sasha & Jason ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

"Thanks a billion would almost cover it! You created a memory of our wedding day that we will treasure forever."
Kara & Allen
"We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 2020 was so crazy and we never thought we would have such a beautiful and meaningful ceremony after all the changes we had to make for this wedding to happen. We were so afraid it would be such a let down after we had planned a big celebration with all of our friends and family, but you took a [less than perfect] situation and made it so perfect and intimate, so special and romantic. Our anniversary is going to remind us of a beautiful moment in time for the rest of our lives."
Sasha & Lindy

"Thank you so much for the beautiful, intimate ceremony. We greatly appreciate you being there to marry us! It was such a wonderful gathering, especially with everything that has been going on."
Holly & Akash
