We have known John Huffman for many years and we could not have imagined anyone else officiating over our marriage ceremony. We love his genuineness, compassion, and humor. We knew if this day ever came for us, it would be John we would want to marry us.

The service he put together was made just for us and very personal. He paid special attention to ideas we had and offered great suggestions to go along with our desires. On every level it far exceeded our expectations and brought our family and friends into the experience with us.

Without exception every person in attendance commented that it was the most beautiful wedding service they had ever attended.

Thank you John for making our wedding day so memorable. We love you so much and appreciate your graciousness.

John was such a wonderful part of our destination wedding. He built and personalized the ceremony around us and our wishes, and also incorporated moments and readings that were relevant and meaningful. His experience and insight helped us to build an event that ran smoothly and involved our friends, family and guests. We're still receiving compliments - one of our guests asked us later what it felt like to "start our marriage with an event that everyone who attended would never forget". Thank you, John, for making our wedding so beautiful and memorable for us all!
