Sweet Seventh Anniversary

[My husband] and I are coming up on our 7th anniversary. I have thought of you so often over the years and each day celebrate the wonder of our wedding and our marriage. You helped us create something amazing.

You were a wonderful guide for us as we stepped forward to prepare ourselves with what and how we wanted our wedding, and with the surprises that came to us on that day and each day after. I mostly wanted to thank you, Sara, for such a precious ceremony for this couple who has deep faith in our marriage, our friendship and each other. Many blessings to you as you have given us!

The Happiest Day of My Life

Dear Rabbi Sara,

Erin and I were both really thrilled with the ceremony you created with us. I'm happy to hear that you got some amazing feedback from guests. I can easily say that the wedding was the happiest day of my life. We recorded the wedding and we enjoyed replaying it on our honeymoon. It was such a special day. Thank you for the essential part you played.

I had heard a rumor that you stayed late into the evening, but I wasn't sure, until now, that it was true. How about that! I'm glad you had a good time. God knows, we did! That sure was a good band, wasn't it?

The whirlwind that has been our life continues, though I think we are approaching the ground again. After the wedding we spent a week in Kauai, then, last Sunday, flew directly to our new home in Seattle. Erin has already started her Family Medicine residency and I am busy unpacking boxes and beginning to think about a job search. This certainly is an exciting time for us.

Thank you for the sweet message. All the best to you.

Thankful for the blessings of your wisdom, generosity and photographic talents

Dearest Sara,

Ed and I are delighting in married life! We think and speak of you often and send you blessings filled with loving, positive energy. Thank you so much more than words could ever express for creating the most beautiful ceremony, providing insights and words of wisdom, sharing the momento copy of our license, and taking wonderful photos.

How can it be that one beautifully sweet soul has so much talent in so many areas?? I know you are a superb photographer. I am so delighted that you were able to capture the special shot of me with my grandaughter, Abby.

It is a blessing to have you in our lives, and we bless you with prayers of happiness and fulfillment. You are loved and treasured, my wonderful friend,

Susan and Ed

Magnificent honeymoon followed Spectacular wedding ceremony

Hi Rabbi -

We just returned from our magnificent honeymoon on the north shore of Oahu last night and are adjusting to reality - it's been a while since we've been in it!!

Our wedding and ceremony were more spectacular than we could have ever dreamed and we are endlessly grateful to you for generously sharing your gifts and bringing such spirit and beauty to us.
