Thank you for helping to unite our dear children, with your blessings.  Your deeply spiritual invocation for Alicia and Todd brought us great joy and comfort.  Thank you for this gift.”

Our friends and family all commented on how beautiful the ceremony was.  It not only was a gift to Matt and I but out guests felt they came away with a gift as well. One of our friends said it made her fall in love with her husband all over again..

You are a remarkably kind, warm & generous person and we feel blessed to have found you and most of all to have married us.”

“Happy Anniversary!  It’s been a year since the most fabulous day of our lives (Brian’s and my life that is). I can’t express to you, even one year later, how much our wedding day meant.  The most amazing aspect of it was how you expressed, in not only words, but emotion exactly what we felt and continue to feel.  Your take on life and spirituality continue to play a part in our lives.  We love and admire your harmony with all things, and we are happy you were the one who guided us that day.”

“Thank you for your great gift of words, presence, Spirit and love at our wedding ceremony.  You absolutely created the experience we dreamed our wedding would be.  I know you took my father to a place in his heart he hasn’t been in a long time--I bless you for that moment--the triumph of deep happiness & understanding.  The energy & laughter amidst our vows was all about us too!  I remember we told you together, a long time ago we wanted a ceremony that our guests felt more a part of our life, felt something had happened inside them.  We can’t count the friends & family who continue to be awed by their day on our day--they are mystified and it is marvelous.

Thank you for all your precious time, listening and reflection before our wedding.  In revealing ourselves to you, realized so much about our love, our companionship and our destiny.  It all feels more full!”
