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
