alternately laughed and cried and were amazed at how perfectly you captured
the essence of our relationship. With your help, our ceremony was perfect
– we couldn’t have dreamed better on our own . . . To this
day, to read those words again brings it all back. You’re wonderful!

received countless compliments on what a great job you did. Many people

he paid attention to every single word and didn’t zone off! Please
feel free to use us as a reference anytime.

with you to create our vows . . . these shared experiences all made
our ceremony more personal and more meaningful to us as we stood at
the altar with you. We’ve had more comments about how touching
the ceremony was, and how beautiful your delivery of it, than anything
else on our day.
