TESTIMONIALS

"Dear Minister Ron:
Thank you very much for the excellent job you did as officiant for our wedding. I know some of our requests weren't exactly simple (learning some Bosnian), and we really appreciate you working so hard to make everything work out so smoothly. Additionally, you helped us out tremendously because of your expertise - there were several things we wouldn't have thought of, but you had it all covered. Your kind and patient personality were exactly the things we were looking for, and we are so pleased with the ceremony. Thank you again for all you did to make our day so special!"

"Dear Minister Ron:
How wonderful it was to finally meet you. Having done all this planning of our wedding over the internet, it was a joy to meet you. Once again, we want to express how grateful we both are for your helping us make the day just the way we had pictured it. The Park couldn't have been a better place to express our love to each other for life. And the ceremony was so beautiful, from the words you spoke, to the words we recited to each other... it was all like a dream come true. The restaurant (Villa Rosa) was wonderful, also... just the perfect spot to celebrate the weddingl"

"Hi, Ron:
Everyone was moved by your words, especially in the Rose Ceremony. You are really, really good. Everyone was asking about you that day, and telling me how unique and moving my ceremony was. I've been to several weddings, and you were the best minister I've ever seen. Thank you again." Abigale and William

"Dear Ron: We just wanted to send you a special thanks for all you did for us on our wedding night. You helped to make that day a truly special day for us. I appreciate your staying and celebrating with us... you fit in just perfect; I felt as if you were one of the family. You will always be remembered. Good luck in the future." --Jill & Warner

"Minister Ron:
'After The Wedding:' After the wedding when our loved ones have gone, and the fragrance of flowers has lingered til dawn, when the last piece of cake at the table is cut, the lights have all dimmed and the doors have been shut, when everything's quiet our memories made, and each flower petal is starting to fade, it's then in that moment and all the years through we'll think of our vows and saying, I do. We'll treasure the moment and all you have done, by sharing God's blessing we are now one.' Thank you for everything."
Michael and Kimberly

PHOTOGRAPHER:
"Ron, it was a pleasure to meet you and to work with you. Your warmth and openness is so very refreshing, given that so many in the wedding industry look only to the bottom line. If we ever have the chance, we will be honored to recommend you. I hope to see you again soon."
