Magic – that ethereal, beautiful, can’t-quite-put-your-finger-on-it quality that any good love story needs.

Your wedding ceremony may not be the beginning of your story, but it marks a pivotal moment in one of the most important chapters. It’s that point when you look at each other, in front of friends and family, and commit to a lifetime together.

You hold hands, look into the unknown and promise to be with each other through it all, no matter what.

There’s a reason they hand out tissues at wedding ceremonies – they offer some of life’s most beautiful moments that should be cherished.

Most importantly, they should be delivered skillfully from someone you trust. Make sure you choose the right person to be there for you for your special day.
