Justine and Mike 5/19/07

Hi Rev Mark,
    I just wanted to thank you for providing Justine and Mike with a beautiful ceremony. I know I didn't give you much notice to write the ceremony but you made it perfect. You captured the moment to fit them perfectly. When I was panicking that Mike had not found a minister you reassured me you would be the best person for the job. You were amazing and all my conservative Catholic family said that (it) was a beautiful ceremony and fit the location and fit Mike and Justine perfectly... For all the anxiety I had over the location everything was beautiful, Mike and Justine did it in their style with a very classy touch. Thank You so much for your help... I have had several people ask me where I found you so expect some phone calls.
                                         Thanks A Million

Ken and Libby

Hello Pastor Mark,

I would like to once Thank-You again for being able to fit Ken and Myself  in on March 17 St. Pattys Day 2007.   It was really  nice to finally meet you after many e-mails and having numerous  phone conversations. I appreciate how nice of a job you did for us and we especially liked  the House blessing.  We are having it framed and are going to hang it in our living room where our ceremony took place. You did a fantastic job and you made it a day we'll never forget.

It was much more enjoyable than just being in the courthouse.  Plus our families where glad they could be there.  J

All our thanks,

Ken and Libby


Aloha Pastor Mark,

Rev. Mark, 

   David and I both are so appreciative to you for EVERYTHING that you did to make our day special! 

   We will always remember the last-minute scheduling, the suggestion of the park, the stunning bouquet that you helped David surprise me with, the pictures that you took for us, the thoughtfulness of the words and readings in the ceremony, and (not least) the freindship that you extended to both of us. 

   David and I definitely want to keep in touch with you.  You have become a part of our family now.  We will keep Youngstown on our list of places that are important to us, and you bet we will be visiting that park and Youngstown again!!!  I hope we can see you when we are there.

   The pictures are beautiful, and you captured many of the memories we have, including the turtles.  We love them.

 Always,                -Devi
