A breathtaking ceremony
Where do I start!! To begin with, Debra is one of the most vibrant, sweet and thoughtful women I have ever met.Sent on 08/08/2019
Our first meeting was more than just a discussion about the wedding. It was a session full of caring, advice, and compassion. My husband and I left inspired to love and we felt stronger than ever as a couple.
Every single detail was discussed and thought out. You will get what you wished for and MORE. She suggested things that I did not even think myself which made our ceremony unique and unforgettable. One of those that swept our mothers away was the rose ceremony. During the ceremony, we both went over to our moms, hugged them and handed them a rose as a sign of unity and appreciation. Our mothers cried of happiness and it left them speechless. This is just one small detail of this ceremony. We were also able to choose our desired level of religion, as well as what feeling we wanted to show, for example intimate, humorous or uplifting. We were able to plan the perfect ceremony for us. My husband is Irish, so she kindly added some Irish blessings that his guests loved. Another sweet detail that she suggested was making little scrolls that had a poem on all of them and they were placed at the dinner table. What a sweet detail! And everybody loved them. They were gorgeous. Her company is more than just officiating. She will help with other things as well.
Did I mention she was an English teacher and she KNOWS how to write really well? She even helped me correct my vows to make them sound smooth and even more loving.
We grew so close to Debra that she feels like my second mother. She will care for you with limitless love. I highly recommend to choose her with no doubt. Love you, Debra!
Vista Events's reply:Oh, this is the sweetest thing ever, Ausra! It truly makes me want to marry you two all over again! I am so blessed to have such great couples and their families to work with. You and yours will always be special to me. Even your grandmother and your guests from Ireland were so kind to me. Thank you! And please, thank all of them for me, too.
