dear to your heart and making a lifelong commitment for all to hear. This is what
truly unites two people as a married couple.

each guest. A small token of thanks given for people that have taken
time out of their schedules, given help, gifts, traveled, or done

available in nearly every category one could imagine, from sterling
picture frames, personalized chocolates, and even bath soaps.
