Here are a few things I've heard from couples I have been lucky enough to marry. I hope they give you some idea of the experiences we've had together.

"Mark, Sometimes I think you're psychic! We've got the whole ceremony figured out, but there was one reading that was still troubling us; it just didn't seem quite right. And now you've sent us the perfect reading to take its place!"

"It was good to see you again on Sunday at Anne-Margaret's beautiful wedding. Allen was very glad to meet you--he says he feels that you have a very calming presence."

"I just wanted to say thank you so much again for performing our wedding. I thought it went beautifully, and a lot of that was due to you. I can't imagine anyone else being so much in the same spirit as we were, if that makes sense."

"Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. I didn't get a chance to tell you that day, but having you there really made it special for us. You spoke beautifully, and you had a soothing presence about you that put both me and Lars at ease. I really can't thank you enough for being part of it, and for helping us to plan it (it was, after all, mostly your words for the ceremony)."

"We loved working with you!"

"Mark, you were the perfect officiant. I must tell you that the whole ceremony (and whether to have it) hinged on you being available. I knew only you could do it and make it fit perfectly for me and Mark. Mark commented that you made it feel like it was just the three of us and he's totally right. We both look forward to sharing our other compliments with you in person."
