Grateful for My 2012 Wedding Season Brides & Grooms

The 2012 Wedding Season is certainly winding down. It was really heart-warming to receive these two thank you notes from brides whom I married.

It was the busiest wedding season that I’ve experienced. I found myself doing six weddings a weekend buzzing around the Ottawa region performing wedding ceremonies. Each wedding is a unique expression of the couple’s love and commitment. My hope with each one is that I can blossom the sharing of that expression for the bride, groom and all those present.

I receive wonderful thank you notes along the way that tell me that I am delivering on my hope. This week with the end of the 2012 wedding season drawing to a close, I was particularly touched by these two notes. Yea – I cried with gratefulness.

From Shannon & Bobby whom I married in August:

I just wanted to say, thank you so SO much for helping to make our day as amazing as it was. We were so happy with how you walked us through everything in advance, and how you encouraged us to add in our own personalities. We both felt that you delivered the ceremony just like an old friend would have, which so perfectly suited the atmosphere we wanted. I also very much appreciated your calming presence – with all the pressure I put on myself that day, it was nice to be reminded to just relax and take deep breaths. We also got so many comments from friends on family that the ceremony was just “so us,” and that it was the perfect combination of light humour and heartfelt sincerity. It was truly everything we wanted.  

And from Michelinne & Darren from an elopement in September:

Our sincere thanks for your warm wishes and kind words on our wedding day. A dozen thank yous could not express the happiness they brought. It was such a joy waking up the next day to a sweet reminder that we were newly weds! Thank you for joining in our enthusiasm & excitement as we began our life together. Your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated. 

Thank you for working with us to create a unique & intimate ceremony tailored to our relationship & wedding style. It was such a pleasure working with you. You are a kind soul & feel so fortunate to have been able to share our special day with you. 

We wish you an abundance of joy, love, health & laughter. Your enthusiasm for life is infectious & we are thrilled to have shared in it.
