out of the box ceremonies, sailing, yacht clubs, country clubs, historic mansions.
Did you know that on March 20, 2016 it was not only the first day of spring but also the International Day of Happiness, that is a global celebration? Well that is something I didn’t know about, but I found that out when I met Laura and Andrew. I just married them yesterday on March 20th and they told me about the International Day of Happiness. It was the perfect day for Laura and Andrew to choose that day, because they are a couple filled with hope and gratitude to live a full and happy life.
They chose Bittersweet Farm in Westport, MA for their location. This farm is appropriately named and appropriately named for this couple. It felt Bittersweet for me, knowing their story. When a couple chooses me as their officiant, I send them 25 questions for them to fill out. I’m always amazed how well I get to know them by their answers. They share with me their personal thoughts on love and marriage and I take that very seriously. This is how I personalize my ceremonies and this is why my ceremonies are filled with warmth-it’s each couples love that fills my pages-I just tell their story.
Laura and Andrew met in college and became instant friends. After graduation they went their separate ways and stayed in contact from time to time and were always able to pick up right where they left off. After many years of experiencing their lives they came full circle and re-connected, this time their friendship turned into love. I love their story because they became two complete people that chose to be together because they were ready for love.
It felt “Bittersweet” to me to witness their day. As I looked at them and at their parents, friends and family, I felt a warmth that I will never forget.
