More kind words...

The day WAS perfect! And it would not have been so wonderful without you! It was so nice to just be able to enjoy the day and not stress about the details...I know my mom certainly would have been under more stress without you there and the fact that she was able to enjoy it meant so much to me. I really appreciated all your help leading up the big day. It was obvious that you have had a lot of great experience with weddings and that was so helpful in making decisions and working out details. You made our day as stress-free as it could be and I really cannot express how valuable that is to me even now. I think about that day often and cannot remember the "mishaps"....because you took care of them! It was beautiful and everything we wanted. You really understood want kind of wedding we wanted and made the details fit into that vision. It was truly a blessing to have you be a part of the best day of our life! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lauren and Peter

I met Lauren on the phone while she was studying for her bar exam. She had planned most of the wedding, but wanted someone else to be in charge on her weddingday. We instantly clicked on the phone, and she told me that she and Peter felt that I was an answer to prayer! What a compliment! It's always an honor to get to be a part of a wedding that is so focused on Jesus as the center. I enjoyed spending time with this wedding party which was a really fun group. The bridesmaids prayed for the bride in the balcony of the church before the wedding. The members of her house party were extremely helpful. The ceremony took place at St. Mary's Catholic Church and the reception was at the Hilton. I'm not really sure how the ceremony went, because I spent the entire mass holding a fussy baby whose parents were both in the wedding party. They had asked a sweet college girl to watch the baby for them. After the wedding party was down the aisle, and the ceremony had begun, I heard the baby fussing. I went over to see what was happening and saw a young girl who looked terrified and hopeless to help this beautiful little girl. I offered to hold the baby and figured out basic needs that needed to be met; burping, change of diaper, feeding. All actions you learn to do as a mom of four! I finally got her to sleep at the end of the service, and the college girl was grateful as well as the parents! I was thinking that I can now add to my job description: "Will hold fussy baby, if neccessary." But then again, that's what I do: whatever it takes to make your day happen.
