"I consider every ceremony to be as original and unique as the couple standing before me; we will work together to craft the language that speaks to you and describes your journey together."
I may be slightly prejudiced, but I believe the marriage ceremony—not the setting, the flowers, the outfits or the guest list—is the most important component of your wedding day.
The words should reflect your journey, tell your story and mirror your hearts.
There is no other ritual which changes your 'definition' as that of marriage, and no other time when we are as joyful and as vulnerable as when we place our hearts and lives in someone else's care.
