Wedding in Paris, France
Symbolic Ceremony
March 27th 2007

 
Hi Ms. Caroline Berthe,
 
Again, I'm so sorry it took us so long to get back to you! As you know, our wedding was an absolutely perfect experience for us!  We never would have expected that things would go so smoothly, nor that the entire day would be so fabulous. Our wedding far exceeded our expectations!
 
First, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with.  We spent months communicating with various planners in France to see what everyone offered. 
You were by far the most attentive person we contacted.  Additionally, you listened to what we said we wanted and made suggestions that were exactly on par with our thoughts.  Not only did you organize every last detail, but you were with us the day of our wedding to make sure that everything went well. 
 
We didn't even have to worry about our dresses and tuxedo, as you made sure they were pressed and brought back to our room!
 
The church you suggested was gorgeous!  Even though you sent us pictures ahead of time (which was also really nice), it was hard to believe that the church would be as beautiful as it was.  We were speechless when we walked in and discovered that the church was actually more beautiful than the pictures you sent (which we didn't believe was possible).
 
The celebrant was so incredibly sweet!  The ceremony that he performed was perfect.  We had no idea what to expect and left most of it to the celebrant.  Even his readings that he chose were just what we would have picked out if given the choice. Also, he worked the special ceremony for our daughter right into what he had written. We were very happy with him!
 
The cars we had were also very nice.  We felt like celebrities that day as we drove around in them.  The cars were spotless and very classy.  The drivers were both friendly and knew a lot about Paris that they were able to share with us.  We were very happy with the transportation in general.
 
The flowers were also incredible.  I was sceptical about merely sending you a picture of the flowers we wanted, but my bouquet was a mirror image of the picture I sent you, and Doug's boutonniere was very nice as well!  We also liked the flower petals at the church--a nice touch that also made for great pictures!  Caroline also felt pretty special carrying around her bouquet.
 
The photographer was by far the best bargain of the wedding.  He was very friendly, and we liked the way that he took pictures of us being natural, instead of every picture being posed.  Again, we weren't sure what to expect from the pictures.  We liked the idea of getting a DVD with all of the pictures on it.  The finished product is unbelievable.  When we got home and looked at the disc, each and every picture was perfect!  He was not only an outstanding photographer, but his pictures were so artistic that they look like they should be in a magazine.  The locations that he took us to after the ceremony were also perfect for pictures--some don't even look real (it also didn't hurt that the weather cooperated and the sun was shining). 
Everyone who looks at our pictures comments on how great they are. Suffice to say, we are SO very pleased with our pictures and thankful that we have them!
 
The ONLY part of our wedding day that did not exceed our expectations was the organist.  Although he played well, he did not play our last song that we chose. The organist was such a small part of our day, so it really wasn't a big deal.  We laughed when walking out of the church as he started to play the wrong song!  That is the only part of our day that we were a little disappointed with, but as I said, it was so minor that it was not important.
 
Finally, we really appreciate you videotaping our ceremony for us.  You did such a nice job!  We have watched the video a few times already and are very pleased with the way you captured both the 3 of us and also our guests.
You even caught one mom crying, which is something that we would not have known about.  It is very nice to have a video in addition to our pictures, so thank you again for volunteering to be behind the camera!
 
Caroline, thank you for being such an integral part of our most important day.  Without you, our day would not have been nearly as special! You're the best!
Thanks again,
 
Doug and Tara
