With a gentle hand and superb sense of humour, Brenda guided us through a possible scenario for our unique situation. We are two families coming together, with five children. This ceremony wasn’t just about Dan and I—we were passionate about including our children throughout as we weren’t just marrying each other.
As a bilingual family we also wanted to ensure we included at least one passage in French. Brenda made excellent suggestions for passages that reflected who we are as a couple, one of which my sister did recite. And then we chose another that Dan’s mother lovingly read in French and English. The finishing touch was our vows to our beautiful children.
Throughout, Brenda was generous with her time, consistent with reminders for when certain steps needed completion, and always good-natured and patient with our decision making process. Dan and I were elated with the ceremony and many of our guests commented on how beautiful and loving it was without being long.
Thank you Brenda. You made the most important day of our lives simply wonderful! "
