music at our wedding. I know the events surrounding the groom
losing consciousness were a bit unsettling, but you handled the
situation beautifully - with grace, professionalism and most of
all sensitivity. Thank you very much. I will always remember you

never been more true than after those dark moments. Weíll always
remember your very important part of our wedding."
