“I knew from the first conversation with you that you were 'it”

More important than the flowers or the color of the tablecloth…
The wedding officiant.
Dear Captain Arnold,
‘Thank you’ does not begin to express my and my husband’s deep gratitude for you and the beautiful wedding ceremony that you performed for us. Perfect is a word that I rarely use since few things in life truly are. Yet, that is how I would describe my wedding ceremony…perfect.
I knew from the first conversation with you that you were ‘it’. You were going to be the one to marry us. I felt an immediate connection and it felt right in my gut. Along with all of the research that showed your outstanding ability as an officiant, I knew choosing you as our officiant was the right choice. You have such a presence about you. You provided such a calmness that I needed in planning my wedding with just a touch of humor too, that was just right. You were available 24/7 and always had all of the information that I requested (including information that I hadn’t even thought about). You never made me feel that I was a bother or that you were too busy. You were thorough and gave me the security I needed as a bride-to-be. Billy and I felt so comfortable with you and enjoyed our meeting with you.
Also, I am so appreciative of the wedding package you sent about a week after our wedding. The vows printed on beautiful paper brought me to tears, the good kind, and I will frame it. Your guidance continued after our wedding day, by providing an after the wedding checklist which was so helpful.
Both sides of our family loved the touching ceremony and can’t believe how ‘amazing’ it was. Our wedding ceremony has and will continue to give us our best memories. The wedding ceremony, the most important part of the wedding, was a blessing. You have touched our lives forever and forever we are grateful.
With love,
Lauren & William Finalborgo
