    Better the Second Time Around

    For our 10th Wedding Anniversary, I wanted to do something very special. Our wedding was a grand affair, over 200 people, all of the pomp and circumstance of a huge wedding and though beautiful and we loved it, lacked intimacy. To mark our milestone anniversary, I wanted to surprise my husband and most importantly, I wanted to include our children. Terry worked with me every step of the way. He knew just the right questions to ask to make our ceremony and vows special. Because it was a surprise for Steve, Terry wrote his vows and through the thoughtful questioning it sounded as if Steve wrote the vows himself. Terry also knew exactly what reading to give my little guy that would make him feel like a special participant. It was brilliant, and moving and he was so proud. He was amazing with my little diva, patient and light hearted. This ceremony was simply everything I could have ever wanted. It was just the five of us, in our yard, renewing our vows on our own terms for us and no one else. Terry knew how important this moment was for us. He helped create a moment in time that was magical for us, but that helped showed the strong bonds of love for our children and for that alone we will be eternally grateful! Simply stellar service and commitment to love.

    Great wedding officiant

    Terry was a pleasure to work with on our wedding. He made a suggestion in our initial consultation that we didn't know existed and we ended up going with it for our wedding. The ceremony that he put together for us was great and we were able to customize anything up until the day of the wedding.

    Very happy that we went with Terry and highly recommend him.

    Darling Ceremony's reply:

    Justin & Janine, Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and for your wonderful review. Getting to know you and your families was a real treat for me and your ceremony was such a joy. Congratulations and all the best! Terry
