“Be reminded that you gave this couple (and I’m confident every other) a day we won’t ever forget. Your skills are not just top of the line, although they are, but you channel them with heart, intuition, artfulness and care for the ultimate meaning of the experience itself, and the people being honored. As I head into some professional waters that will require my own love of hospitality and “experience-making,” I may be calling you for tips. Thanks for your example, all your hard work has continued to be for us — both in our memories, and in the community that got to experience it.”
