I just sent the first draft of their ceremony to a couple I’ll be officiating for in late July. Here’s the note the bride sent: “Heidi, we are so happy with the ceremony you created. It’s truly ignited my excitement for the wedding.”
So many couples get mired down in the minutia — caterers, table cards, florists, DJs, gowns, family dramas, it’s endless — that they forget why they’re getting married. Um, because they’re in love and want to spend their lives together. The only part of the wedding that really focuses on their commitment is the ceremony. I could not have received a lovelier or more welcome compliment. Take all the trappings of the wedding-industrial complex out of the way, and get excited about the commitment you’re going to make. That’s what my job is all about!
