I just fell in love with this adorable couple! Their guests laughed, they cried, they cheered as we celebrated their marriage in the beautiful, intimate Presidio Chapel. They even included me in fun rehearsal dinner at Arnoldi's complete with homemade cupcakes! Such a fun couple!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Dearest Barbara,

I don't know where to begin, the compliments are so numerous!!!!! All of our guests were amazed by the words that you chose. So much so that several even asked for copies! Many approached us afterwards and confessed that they haven't heard a more honest, personal and meaningful wedding service in a very long time. We would like to thank you for your quiet strength and calm, that helped make us less nervous and more comfortable!
We will recommend you to any couple!!!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
K & J

Fun Presidio Wedding!

"We have received SO many compliments on our wedding ceremony and especially you! Everyone felt it was the the perfect balance of seriousness, spirit, emotion and light hearted humor-- and also completely personal and very 'us'. We are so happy to have had you guide us through the process and it truly was exactly what we hoped for (aside from my uncontrollable leg shaking!) we had an incredible incredible night surrounded by so many great friends and family. Thank you thank you thank you!!

Mural room nuptials

Bula Barbara!
Rob and I wanted to thank you for the beautiful family and friends were so impressed. As you know my family and I are Catholic and take marriage very seriously. My mother was not expecting the ceremony to be so spiritual and heartfelt. Everything was wonderful!  Thanks again.  I'll send you a picture of the three of us as soon as I receive the photos from the photographer.  I have a favor to ask; would it be possible to email me a copy of the ceremony?  I would like to suprise Rob with the verses and vows; he was so happy and wanted to take in every moment of the ceremony.  In hindsight, we should have had it videotaped....  Thanks again and I hope to hear from you soon.
With Warmest Regards,

Private Estate Wedding

In letter to wedding planner:
"OFFICIANT: Barbra did such a wonderful job. She made sure to get some personal information from us beforehand and incorporated it into the ceremony for a warm touch. George was overcome with emotion and I was afraid of crying and losing my false eyelashes!!! She was easy to work with and offerred several ceremony script options via email beforehand. I also appreciate her appearance as well, as I think it made it a very elegant ceremony."

"PHOTOS: We were SOOOOOO excited when we saw these first photos by Melissa Musgrove. If this is any indication of what you plan to do, we can't wait!?! The shots of the estate were amazing and the garden sculptures really set the tone for the event photos. We love that you added some black and white to the mix. The photo of me in the Master Suite was amazing! Now I wish we did some more! I can't wait for when you show us the final copies. I like your "eye".

I am really glad we connected. You helped us make our wedding a spectacular start to our life together. I think your vendor choices were excellent. I appreciated the fact that they all arrived promptly and required little or no direction. I was just thinking that because of your choices, things ran so smoothly and we didn't need a plannner per se.

Back from Honeymoon in Greece!

I don't know if there are enough positive adjectives to describe what a fantastic and perfect ceremony you created and delivered for us. Thank you for making us feel comfortable and calm throughout the entire process - from the first meeting to our wedding day, we couldn't have hoped for a better experience. You're warm personality, your kind words and your professionalism was greatly appreciated. I'm sure all of our tears of joy during the ceremony spoke to how touched and close we felt, for us it was magical. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
P.S. So many people commented on how great the ceremony was - we even got requests for a copy of the ceremony, as it had such a nice message.

You're the best, keep on bringing love and joy into this world!

Lots of love,
Jeanette and Michael
