to ask.The trip to the courthouse in St Thomas to get our marriage
license went exactly as you told us it would.For all of this we are
so thankful to you.

would like to express our appreciation for the beautiful, relaxed ceremony
that you conducted for us. Since it was a second marriage for both,
we entered into it with a great determination and commitment to a loving
and lasting relationship. We didn't want all of the fanfare and complicated
rituals that first weddings typically generate, and fortunately found
the perfect person to conduct our ceremony. Your sense of humor, instant
rapport and uncanny ability to read our characters after only speaking
with us for a few minutes resulted in a remarkably personalized ceremony
that made our wedding very special. Thank you."
