"We would like to say that not only did you look the
part, you performed your part really well, with your
deep, confident and unamplified voice carrying
remarkably well.  Yes, we wrote the vows, but the
manner in which you delivered them and the
emphasis on certain key words really drove the
message home.

This wedding had so many special parts, the sum of
which we will remember the rest of our lives.  We
feel that we were especially blessed  by having a
man of your character perform the role which you

This day was so special in so many ways and we
want to thank you so much for the role you played in

Matt and I would like to offer our sincerest
thanks for all of your help not only on the
afternoon of our wedding, but in the months
and days leading up to it. The ceremony was
absolutely perfect, the location was
breathtaking, and the vows flawlessly expressed
the feelings and ideas that Matt and I hoped to
share; all our family members said the day could
not have been better!

If we decide to renew our vows in the future, we
will certainly know whom to call."
