So Grateful for my Grateful Couples! :-)

It means so much that busy couples would take the time to thank me after their weddings!This is what makes what I do so rewarding... "Dear Barbra, Our beautiful wedding ceremony was more than we expected! Your words were perfect for an intimate gathering. The readings you helped us choose were profound and meaningful. Vess and I both mentioned how connected we felt to you and our guests. I attribute that to your warm, peaceful spirit, which touched all of us. We especially enjoyed the personal comments about each other that you included. We are still receiving compliments from family and friends about the service. My mom LOVED it! We feel honored and lucky to have been your 100th couple, and will treasure the "Amore" dish for a lifetime. I am recommending you to all my SB friends. It will be the best decision they could make. Thank you again for making our wedding day full of love and joy! All our love, P&V

Fun Idea to Remember the Love... when You're Not Feeling it :-)

Fun idea from one of my up-coming brides: 1) Bride & Groom write a love letter to each other, about how much they mean to one another. 2) Put in box with a nice bottle of wine. 3) Hammer shut at wedding. 4) When you have your first disagreement, open the box, read your letters in separate rooms, then come together with the bottle of wine.

Farm Wedding Thank You

I just wanted to thank you again for providing the most perfect ceremony for David & I a couple of weeks ago. I never knew that people, aside from the bride & groom, listened so intently during the wedding ceremony, but I cannot tell you how many people approached us that evening, expressing what a wonderful ceremony you conducted. So many people had so many wonderful comments in your honor!! We couldn't have been happier! The truth is, I liked you the moment we met you in Laguna Beach, and we were so thrilled to have found you just based on that meeting alone. So I just wanted to thank you again for everything!!! Love, E&D P.S. We will send you pics as soon as get them! :-)
