My intention is to make everybody there feel completely part of, and integral to a couple’s very special day. At the very heart of the ceremony, I write with them, their Love Story. It tells the story of who they are together, from when they first met, their first kiss, their journey thus far, the proposal and finally to this, their wonderful wedding day.”
