A Note of Gratitude from our July 25th Bride, Ashleigh!

Miss Debra,

There are no words that can express the thankfulness that Kris and I hold in our hearts for your creation of our dream wedding. We've waited our entire lives for this magical day to come, and now that it has passed, we feel that our expectations were far!!!!

You are so kind, and such a beautiful person inside and out. Your hard work and dedication to our event showed, and your respect for our wishes was so easily seen and we can't thank you enough. You took any worries I had and made them go away. Your staff was utmost delightful, and amazing. Your artistic ability is fabulous, and you were able to make my vision a reality, and make it even better than I could've ever imagined. I thank you so much for all the surprises you and mom came up with, and I'm so glad I didn't ruin them... I truly did feel like a rock-star princess on July 25th, and that feeling will always be in my heart when I think of my special day. I was driving with Kris today in the car, and our last song of the evening came on, Angel by Aerosmith, and I got a little misty eyed and was instantly filled with tears of joy....and I will always think of my wedding day when I hear this song, how amazing it was and I will always think of the angel God has sent to me, and that is you!

I wish you the utmost success, happiness and joy because that is what you have given to us.... and you deserve it. I love you so much!

Love always,Your biggest fan, dear friend, and thankful bride,

Mrs. Ashleigh Yates

Floating with White Swans

Lauren & David, our fabulous June 27th Bride and Groom, taking a quick spin around the private pond with the baby swans after their wedding ceremony. All their guests waited with anticipation for them to make their grand entrance into their tented soiree . . . . . . and dry I might ad! Everyone could see them floating around with the swans from the tent. It was a sight to behold. And they wanted to do this before the ceremony! Could you even imagine that? I don't think so!
Thank you to Cindi Kinney and Lorenzo Bartone of CinZo Celebration Photography for sharing
with us. The image is lovely and oh so romantic!
Warmest wishes and bonjour!

Mother of The Bride ~ Note of Gratitude

Breathtaking, Debra.

I have had difficulty thinking of anything else since the day of the wedding so I thank you for forwarding these beautiful pictures for us to review & relive a most incredibly special day. Roger & I love them! I can't seem to get enough of this wedding!!! CinZo did such an amazing job capturing all the details and the mood of the moment. The quality of these pictures is phenomenal. (I especially LOVE the one of Lauren & her daddy beginning their walk down the aisle.)

Being caught up in the celebration, we saw things in the pictures we didn't get a chance to really absorb such as the rose petal aisle, signs near the cocktail area, the loaded shrimp shooter display, the bridal party table (good call), rowing with the swans, and on and on ... As for our beautiful bride, my one & only Lauren, I am in awe of her. At the risk of sounding like a doting mother, she looks radiant and so genuinely happy ... ready to take on her new role with the man of her dreams. Her calm demeanor that day dictated the mood for all. Nothing flustered her. You can see it in her face. Hence, almost everything fell perfectly into place. We should all take a lesson from this. My dashing son-in-law, David, (it feels so good to finally call him this) beams. Their love & affection for one another are as evident in the pictures as it is in day-to-day life. Now we have it captured forever on film for us and their future children to enjoy as often as we like, which in my case will be daily. I can't tell you how happy we are for them ... for us.

I thank you and your most amazing crew for giving us a day we will never forget. The celebration continues as we relive the events of the day with our family & friends who witnessed the "perfect" wedding for Lauren & David. Everyone I have spoken to has given rave reviews to all. We could not have asked for anything more than what was given to us. Thank you, Debra, Shelley, Prestige, Extreme, Esther, Don Sheffield, CinZo and all others you brought on board for making our girl's dream wedding a reality. All the details made such a vast difference. She & David, as well as Roger & I, are totally thrilled with the result. I can't wait to hear Mr. & Mrs. Barretts' responses to these amazing photos. Bless you for sharing with us so quickly.

If only you could feel the gratitude in my heart, Debra ...

Love, appreciation & warmest wishes to you. Hope to speak with you soon.
A most grateful Mother-of-the Bride who loves you
