  • Raef and I would just like to extend a huge THANK YOU for the beautiful ceremony you performed for our wedding, exactly one month ago today! Not only did you help us create the perfect vows, but you also did such a wonderful job as settling our guests and making sure everything ran smoothly. I don’t think the day would have been of what it was without your help and guidance throughout the whole process. Also a big thank you for taking care of all the legal stuff too. The ceremony was everything we had hoped for (and more) and was the perfect way to initiate our married life – your ideas folder and your openness to our own ideas ensured the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. Jessica and Raef.
