Kind Words......
Hi Victoria, 
I received the written ceremony, so thank you for sending it. 
I read it a couple of days after the ceremony, and am so happy with all of the
beautiful words you said, the prayers, and our vows! I feel like ours was unique
and special compared to the 'average' wedding ceremony.
I also just want to thank you in general for making our ceremony possible (and
keeping the most special day in my life OUT of the courthouse!!). I wouldn't have
had it any other way. The pictures your husband took were beautiful -- they looked
professional?? -- and everyone loves them. Tell him thank you for us! 
And the basket you prepared couldn't have been more perfect.
I hope more couples, especially those like us who don't have the resources
for a big wedding, are able to find you and have as great of an experience
as we did!
God bless you and your family! We will certainly keep in touch!

Rev. Victoria,
I want to take this opportunity to tell you that you made our
wedding day unforgettable. You are an amazing person to 
create something so beautiful and wonderful that both Brooks 
and I can look back on and have great memories. 
I think back and reflect on the beauty of your home and where we
exchanged our vows and Brooks, well.... All he wants to reflect on is
the Camaro SS in the garage. :o)  Thank you from the bottom of my heart 
for making our wedding day beautiful! Jamie & Brooks
Rev. Victoria, Thank you so much. The ceremony was perfect. 
I am so glad that we found you. I really appreciate the way you 
have worked with us to make this the way we want it and helping 
us find a special place to spend our honeymoon. Chrissie & Wayne

Rev. Victoria, Itís hard to find words that would ever begin to thank

you enough for how thoughtful youíve been. Our ceremony was more

than we could have imagined. You and your husband were great.

The internet is a wonderful, wonderful place. We found you and we

also found each other there. Thank you so much for your hospitality

and kindness. Kim & Larry


Greg and I so appreciate all you did to make our day special. 

I was a bit disappointed in the weather, but we can't control God's work. 

I look at it as 'Showers of Blessings'.  I appreciate the Certificate and the

Wedding Ceremony.  I read through the ceremony in my own quiet time

the other day and it brought tears to my eyes.  It was nice meeting both

you and your husband and we enjoyed chatting.  Now, it's back to work. 

I can only imagine my greeting tomorrow morning when I return to all

my co-workers.

I have had one of the pictures developed to share in a card to family and friends

announcing our news.  Again, thank you for all your hard work in helping to

make our day a special one! Joan & Greg
