Debbie and Silvia - Married at the Holiday Inn, Las Cruces, NM on New Year's Eve.

Kim at Hitching Hearts was the officiant for our wedding ceremony in Las Cruces. From the beginning, Kim was warm, open, always timely and helped us prepare for our special day. Kim provided several example soft copies of ceremonies and encouraged us to be creative and make our ceremony "ours". From the examples we molded ours, adding and subtracting as our hearts lead us. Kim reviewed our first draft of the ceremony and provided feedback based on experience. We had many close family members at our ceremony who provided many compliments on our wedding ceremony; the readings selected, about how warm and full of love the atmosphere was, how professional and personable our officiant was.


Audrey and Stephen - Married on December 13, 2015 at the Double Eaglel, Mesilla, NM.

Kim was a wonderful officiant! She worked with my husband and I on our vows, how the ceremony would work, what would be read, etc. Kim's services are all customized, and she has a great knowledge of different ceremonial customs (i.e. hand binding ceremony, sand ceremony, etc.). To top it all off, Kim is wonderful at communication (so those worried brides have a little less to worry about) and is very affordable! Thank you Kim for making my wedding a wonderful experience! It was just too perfect for words!


Samantha and Carlton - Married on New Year's Eve, 2015!  At the Hotel Encanto, Las Cruces, NM.

Kim at Hitching Hearts was wonderful and a pleasure to work with. We planned a simple elopement ceremony with her on New Years Eve. She was very helpful in finding locations and vendors. She was always available for contact and easy to talk to. Her professional manner and flexibility in ceremony options made our wedding a beautiful and memorable experience for both of us. We loved the beautiful keepsake book of our ceremony and the quick turn around of paperwork. Thank you!


Travis and Selina - Married on November 11, 2014 at White Sands National Monument, Alamogordo, NM.

Hello Kim,

Just wanted to say thank you again, and thank you for having such patience with all us crazy folks. ;)  Everyone enjoyed the ceremony and said you did a wonderful job. Gino, the best man, especially couldn't stop talking about how good of a job you did and especially liked the folder you had put together for us. Thank you for making everything work. I told Selina afterward that partway through the ceremony I realized I was talking very quiet and needed to speak up, but I had just got lost in her eyes, as I tend to do, and I forgot everyone else was there. Well, if I know of anyone looking for an Officiant I will definitely recommend you.  I wish the best to you and your husband. Take care.

Thanks again,



Corinna and Jodi - Married at the Hotel Encanto, Las Cruces, NM on October 25, 2014

Kim was awesome. We needed some help and flexibility since we were coming from Houston but she was very accomodating. Such a value too. 120% satisfied!


Vanessa and Rene - Married at the St. Claire Winery in Mesilla, NM on November 1, 2014.

Kim was extremely patient and accommodating with all the requests that we made. She was a joy to work with and very professional. Although we had never met prior to the wedding, she made us feel extremely comfortable during our ceremony and made it sound very personal. She was also very kind and waited until we finished taking all our family photos before signing our marriage certificate. We highly reccomend Kim and guarantee that she will make your special day easy, fun and special.


Denise and Stuart - Married in their own backyard in Las Cruces, NM on October 11, 2014.

We wanted a small, laid back, hassle-free ceremony that reflected who we were as a couple. Kim asked for our input, incorporated our wishes, and crafted the ideal ceremony for us. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day - everything was perfect! We would definitely recommend Kim to any couple planning their ceremony!


Veronika and Jaime - Married on August 15, 2014 in Las Cruces, NM

Kim was great. She helped us plan the ceremony from start to finish, was very attentive and listened to our wishes in order to create a ceremony that fit our style. On our wedding day, she was there early and went over all the ceremony details with us again. The ceremony was perfect! I would highly recommend Kim to anyone that asks!!!

Kim was great! She was very friendly and professional. She provided us with lots of ideas to include our children in the ceremony. It was perfect!!


Cara and Brad - Married on August 5, 2014 at White Sands National Monument, Alamogordo, NM.

Perfect- Is exactly what our wedding day was on 8/5/14. Kim at The Hitching Heart played an instrumental part in making the entire day come together. I found The Hitching Heart on line and that is always somewhat of a gamble but Kim was extremely responsive, professional and gave my husband and I so many options to truly personalize the day. Kim was early to meet us at the destination which always settles a brides mind and promptly organized the wedding party. The ceremony was beautiful and Kim’s kind words and blessings will stay with us forever. I would 100% without any reservations recommend Kim at The Hitching Heart to preform your ceremony.

Anthony and Esmeralda - Married at Heske Garden Park, Las Cruces, NM on May 17, 2014.

I find it difficult to put into words the AMAZING service Kim @ Hitching Hearts was able to provide for me and my wife. We contacted Kim only a few days before our wedding and the professionalism and high-quality execution, with only a few days of preparation, simply floored my guests, my wife, and I. Not only did Kim attend to every aspect of our relationship, she also provided inclusive items which will extend the memory of our special day for years to come. I highly recommend using Hitching Hearts for your wedding! You will never regret what they have to offer for your special day.


Jai and Taylor - Married on June 7, 2014 at Ladera Canyon, Las Cruces, NM.

Kim is simply fantastic. She is so easy to work with and so helpful. I worked with her for the 8 months before my wedding. She was always available via email and always there to answer me. The options provided for the ceremony were simply BEAUTIFUL and she really listened to us and what we wanted for our special day. Our ceremony was unforgettable and exactly what we wanted and came out even better than expected. Kim is professional and perfect. I highly recommend Hitching Hearts!


Traci and Valerie - Married on May 6, 2014 at White Sands National Monument, Alamogordo, NM.

Kim was great and very flexible for our last minute elopement. Not only did we have no idea where to get started, but pretty much left the details up to Kim. We couldn't be happier. We had our wedding in a park, near a pond. The message, weather, and scene was beautiful.

Kim Bashor was wonderful to work with. She helped us with our small ceremony. She made great recommendations. She also guided us through how to get a marriage license in New Mexico. We are from Texas and travelled to New Mexico to get married. She offered insight into hotel choices as well as dining. She put together a touching ceremony with quotes that will be a part of our memories for the years to come. She also gave us a great book with everything that she said and our written vows that we will treasure. She also included our two young children in the ceremony, which we thought was touching.

We couldn't have found anyone better to create our ceremony!

Kim was absolutely amazing! Our guests enjoyed the ceremony, and we loved how it was personalized for our family.


Andrea and Joe - Married on April 12, 2014 at Hotel Encanto, Las Cruces, NM.

Kim from Hitching Hearts was an amazing choice as our officiant at our wedding. She was very easy to get a hold of, very professional, and was worth every penny. She was easy to get along with, listened to our ideas, and was very warm and kind. Our rehearsal was thrown off by late members of our bridal party and she did not skip a beat. Our actual wedding ceremony had to be moved last minute due to weather, and she was still so organized, had a plan, and did not stress about it once. She even handed out all of our programs to our guests when the venue was unorganized and went to each family member and had them sign our keepsake marriage license as a fun souvenir. I cannot say enough good things about Kim. She was the best choice we made for our day out of all of the decision we had to make. She will make sure your wedding ceremony is exactly what you dreamed!


Robbie and Lary - Married on February 14, 2014 in their back yard, Alamogordo, NM.

Judy and Jane - Married on December 30, 2013 at their home in Las Cruces, NM.

We are a same sex couple from Ohio and we were in Arizona when the New Mexico Supreme Court recognized same sex marriage. We were delighted to be so close to a State to make our dream come true. We had initially planned to go CA. We are so glad we didn't.

We reached out to Kim on very short notice and she was able to accommodate our schedule and recommend a most amazing setting for our ceremony. She is supportive, caring, and she crafted a beautiful service for us that we will treasure.

If you are considering a ceremony of any kind, you will be delighted to have Kim be your officiant.


Cisa and Bert - Married on November 29, 2013 at The Double Eagle, Mesilla, NM.

Kim is a delight to work with; she incorporated our ideas into her wedding ceremony choices. She answered all our questions promptly; was available early on our wedding day to work with our MOH & Best Man.


Mary and Nathan - Married on December 7, 2013 at White Sands National Monument, Alamogordo, NM.

Kim married us early this December, with lead time of only a month or two. She was very responsive and helpful in the creation of the ceremony. She gave us several options to choose from and was able to customize our ceremony to fit both the tone of the occasion and our personalities! We were doing a small, non-religious and non-traditional wedding and she was totally ready to accommodate that.

The weekend we got married wound up being extremely cold and windy. Our wedding was outside, on top of a sand dune, so there wasn't really respite from the elements. Kim was enthusiastic and professional and our ceremony went without a hitch, despite the less than idea weather! Afterwards, she gave us a folder with a beautifully bound copy of our ceremony, copies of our readings, copies of our questionnaire and a ceremonial certificate showing that we were married that day. She took care of filing the legal documents and sent us our legal marriage certificate promptly so that we had everything back around the time we got back from our honeymoon.


Preston and Phoenix - Married on November 12, 2013 at the Marriott Springhill Suites, Las Cruces, NM.

Marge and Sandy - Married on November 4, 2013 at one of the beautiful park areas at NMSU, Las Cruces, NM

Marge and I would really like to thank you for accomplishing our wedding in New Mexico on such a short notice.  What we liked the best was the personal touch you gave to our wedding, especially the booklet with the ceremoy all written out.  After the wedding and flying home, we really forgot what was said so looking back into the booklet was great.  Hope you liked the pictures and after 31 years, we finally did it....

Thanks again and our kids will never forget being involved in our wedding.

Marge and Sandy



Leah and Kayla - Married on November 1, 2013 at Veterans Memorial Park, Las Cruces, NM

Kim was amazing! She put together a beautiful, small ceremony for my wife and I. She put so much thought and care into the whole thing even with such short notice. She had about a week and a half to put together the whole thing, and she was always just a phone call or text or email away, even though she was out of town for some of it. We wouldn't have done it any differently. We highly recommend Kim for any type of ceremony.
Thank you Kim!
Leah & Kayla


Ervina and Matthew - Married on October 19, 2013 in Ladera Canyon, Las Cruces, NM


We were so happy you were a part of our wedding.  We had several guests rave about you.

Kim with Hitching Hearts was so great to work with.  She really took the time to get to know exactly what we wanted out of our cermeony and sent 5 options to choose from that she wrote custom for us.  After picking just the right workding, she delivered the ceremony with such grace and meaning.  She even took the time to make us a booklet with our ceremony wording in it so we will always have that as a keepsake. 

She was so sweet that after the ceremony when my mom needed help to tie a bow on my sash, she gladly jumped in :). 

In addition, she took care of everything after the cermeony for us as well.  She filed our paperwork and all we had to do was wait for our legal marriage license to come in the mail.  She alsao gave me great pointers in how to go through the process of changing my last name. 

I highly recommend Hitching Hearts and can proudly say I was happy Kim was a part of our big day.

Thank you!



Tracey and Carol - Married on October 10, 2013 at home, Las Cruces, NM

Kim was absolutely amazing. My partner and I decided to go get married sooner than planned and needed someone ASAP. My best friend found her and not only did she come through last minute she added the finishing touches that made our wedding fabulous.

Hitching Hearts with Kim is the best you can have for your wedding. My husband and I were new to this area and Kim found the perfect place to marry us. It was a small wedding (just me and him), but it was fantastic. Every word Kim said during the ceremony matched, her word choice was perfect. You get what you pay for is definitely not how to say it, because Kim went Above and Beyond to make our day the BEST DAY we could ever have. Thanks so much Kim. We highly recommend her services.

She was with us every step of the way and made both of us and our children feel welcome, special and helped the children participate in the ceremony.

Kim did an amazing job with our wedding ceremony. We were wanting to write our own vows, but we ended up going with a version of hers because they were absolutely beautiful. She helped us with our rehearsal, including all the little details busy brides forget about. Kim met with my family and I to sign and go over the contract and was very professional, and thorough. I cannot say enough about how helpful, cheerful, and caring Kim is.

Everything was very professional!

Kim, words cannot say how much we appreciated your quick response.

She was a life saver when our original plan hit the snag. My husband and I were so thankful for Kim to make time for us on such short notice (1 month before the event).  Kim is so professional, extremely well organized and very open to last minute changes. The ceremony is customized and really encourages you to find the perfect words, phrases, passages etc that express how you feel about each other. She is damn good.


Cathy and Robert - yet to be married ;-) on December 16, 2012 at their home in Las Cruces, NM.

Kim has been truly amazing through all of this so far.  We are anticipating our wedding on December 16, 2012 and the ceremony that Kim will be providing for us!  Cathy


Jennifer and Lachlan - married at their country home in Chaparral, NM on September 22, 2012.

Kim planned our perfect ceremony. She had everything down to the "T". She took care of all the paperwork too. She even planned everything at the last minute. Thank you for the awesome ceremony.  We loved it!  Mr. and Mrs. Deemer


Anonymous - sometimes clients are shy ;-)... but still like to share about Hitching Hearts.

We did not want the typical wedding ceremony. Kim gave us a ton of options for creating our own unique ceremony. She provided us with wording that she had previously used like readings, poems, etc. We were able to create something that was very "us" without having to do a ton of searching online.

Kim was available any time we had questions. She was on time for the wedding and made sure everyone knew what order to go down the aisle and when.

We really appreciated how flexible she is and her professionalism. We live out of state and she made sure that all appropriate documentation was in the mail ASAP so that I could begin my name change.



Kelly and Ramon - married on July 14, 2012 at the Grapevine in Las Cruces, NM.

Kim was everything we could have hoped for in an officiant.  Kim was absolutely awesome! She was extremely attentive and kept in-touch with us the entire time.

She made sure that the ceremony was everything that we wanted, and was extremely easy to work with. We were allowed to customize our own ceremony.

Kim was extremely flexible, easy to get a hold of, responsive to all of our questions, organized, thorough, and detailed.

Our ceremony couldn't have gone better. My cousin, a professional photographer who has worked with numerous officiants all over the area, was blown away by the quality of service provided by Kim.

I highly recommend her services to everyone!


Ariane and Tony - married on July 14, 2012 at their lovely home in Las Cruces, NM.

Kim was so amazing and sweet. We had so many family and friends comment on how perfect and romantic and special our ceremony was. I'd go with hitching hearts for everyone.


Melissa and Frank - married on June 16, 2012 at the Sunland Park Casino in the Mt. Cristo Rey Room, Sunland Park, NM.

Kim did an outstanding job in performing and creating our dream ceremony. Kim designed a ceremony that was perfect for us and our eternity theme. She was so sweet and very helpful. She kept in great contact with us throughout the months as our wedding date neared. She was amazing!!!


Alisa and James - married June 6, 2012 in the beautiful courtyard of his grandmother's home, Las Cruces, NM.

Kim was wonderful. She exceeded our expectations in an officiant. She was very professional and responded to us quickly. We had a non-traditional ceremony with a flair of vintage touch and a bit of humor written within our vows. Kim as our officiant just made our ceremony flow with ease and her quality of service couldn't have been any better.

Alisa & James Barrio


Pam and Michael - married May 5, 2012 in their own backyard, Las Cruces, NM.

Kim arrived one hour before we were scheduled to be married.  I was running late and asked her to coordinate the caterer, photographer, piano player,disk jockey, and most of all the guests that were arriving early.  She just took over and prior to the ceremony was our Chief Wedding Officer.  And as the time approached for the ceremony, she was so competent in organizing the guests and the wedding party.  We had a very simple ceremony and Kim was personable, elegant, and just a joy.   Both Pam and I would have her again, but we already have promised that we are forever - so it is now up to you to experience her "hitching your hearts".

Kim was the glue for our wedding!


Amy and Cody - married May 12, 2012 at Kahuna's in Las Cruces, NM.

Kim did a wonderful job tailoring our ceremony to our personalities. She is very easy to communicate with and very professional. We very much enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her! Our wedding guests are still complimenting us on our choice of officiant, as they really enjoyed her during the ceremony as well.


Adriaan and Erick - married at the Memorial Park Reserve on Copper Avenue in El Paso, TX  on May 19, 2012

Kim did such an amazing job of working with us to create the perfect ceremony that fit our personalities, and the mood we were hoping to create for our wedding. She was patient with us as we worked through changes, and made the whole process easy, fun and completely stress free. She conducted an AWESOME rehearsal, and helped wrangle all of our relatives with the perfect balance of strictness and fun. She truly thinks of every detail, and to top it all off left us with a beautiful handmade booklet of our ceremony as a keepsake. I truly can't say enough good things about Kim - she made our special day exactly what we had hoped for


Nicolle & Joseph - married at Young Park in Las Cruces, NM on May 15, 2012

Michael & Christina - married at White Sands National Monument on March 15, 2012.

Kim was very helpful in coordinating our marriage. My wife and I are both Active Duty Military and stationed in different states. We had our hearts set on getting married at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. Unfortunately, due to a snag from Uncle Sam we were not able to conduct the wedding on the date we planned. However, with less than 24 hours notice, Kim put everything together and was able to perform our small and intimate ceremony before my wife and I's duties pulled us to different states again. Kim is a professional and comes highly recommended.


Mary Lou & Gerard - Married in their own home on March 10, 2012 in Las Cruces.

Getting married was a big step made easy with Hitching Hearts. Kim is great at what she does. She was very knowledgeable, creative, friendly and professional. We could not have asked for more! I highly recommend her services!


Heather & Roland - Married in Las Cruces, NM at the Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces on March 6, 2012

Kim was professional and very helpful. She offered a variety of specially tailored ceremonies for us and also included a lot of little extra's to make our wedding special. She even stayed after and helped us take pictures! We were very comfortable with her and the beautiful ceremony she performed as well. She even helped my husband with last minute details so that I wouldn't have to deal with them. Kim is a wonderful woman and I recommend her 100%. She was also very affordable and flexible to our needs.


Caitlin & Erik - Married in the Pecan Orchard at her family home in Las Cruces on February 29, 2012

My name is Caitlin. My husband and I got engaged 2 weeks prior to our marriage, and we were dead set on getting married on leap year. I found Hitching Hearts not even a week prior to the wedding day, and seeing as I live out of town from where we were getting married, I had no opportunity to meet Kim prior to our wedding. She did a wonderful job on such short notice. She seemed to make a very special, and unique wedding for me and my husband, despite never meeting us. She did an excellent job of keeping the ceremony short (which is what Erik and I had originally wanted), but long enough to make it special for everyone who decided to attend.  Caitlin

Hi Kim, I just wanted to tell you personally what a phenomenal job you did for us on such short notice.  I really appreiciated it, and you managed to really capture our essence, even though you hadn't met us prior to the wedding, and that was truly amazing.

Thank you, Caitlin


Jonelle & Adam - Married in Mesilla, NM in the Palermo Room of Lorenzo's de Mesilla on December 28, 2011

Kim was absolutely wonderful! She really helped us figure out what sort of ceremony we were looking for and then to fine-tune the details. The result was the perfect ceremony for us. I definitely recommend Kim to all couples.

Kim was absolutely wonderful. She was full of helpful advice for organizing the ceremony and was very punctual in our correspondence. She really helped to make our wedding special and took a lot of the stress out of the process. We really appreciated her!

Cynthia & David - Married in Las Cruces, NM at their home on September 10, 2011

I would just like to thank Kim again for providing GREAT service! My husband and I were very happy with our ceremony. Kim was the first Officiant we contacted and we liked her right from the start! She gave us great options on our ceremony and responded to our emails in a short time frame! She made the planning of our ceremony to be as non-stressful as possible. She is very much recommended! 


 Veronica & Derek - Married in the Plaza Gazebo in Old Mesilla Town, NM on September 29, 2011

Aaron & Serena - Married at White Sands National Monument, Alamagordo, NM on August 27, 2011

We had a non-traditional but very personal wedding: custom costumes and on top of a dune in the middle of White Sands National Monument. We contacted Kim at Hitching Hearts and discussed our ideas. She was very hands-on and exceptionally organized: offering suggestions, helping us develop the ceremony, and making sure she had our foreign vocabulary pronunciations correct. The wedding went exactly the way we wanted and everyone enjoyed themselves, including Kim! She was a delight and we highly recommend her for your special occasion!   

Aaron and Serena Wright, Albuquerque, NM

Stephanie & Devin - Married at the Miranda Chapel in Las Cruces, NM on July 29, 2011

Thank you for helping with our wedding. The ceremony was amazing (the part I could see through my tears). I'll send pictures when I get them. You were amazing and thank you so much!  

Stephanie and Devin


I highly suggest Kim for your wedding. She is willing to work with you on anything and always gets back to you in a timely manner. She was wonderful and at a great price.

Even though I was a bit late, she was there early and was talking to my groom and his men. She let me know what I needed, and because I was putting this wedding together myself it was super helpful. 



Lindsey & Matt - Married at her parent's lovely home in Las Cruces, NM on July 16, 2011

Kim is really great, she provided us with over 5 examples of the entire ceremony and how we wanted it to take place. She worked with us to create our own customized combination of a couple of her examples to where we could exclude what we wanted and added suggestions.

She showed up early / on time and after married she was patient as we sort of jumped the gun on photos and other things instead of signing what she needed from us right away.

She made our wedding fun and exactly what we wanted with lots of traditional elements but also very layed back and informal as well.

Kim even helped with some organization of the groomsmen and where to stand which is something we should have had taken care of on our own since we didn't invite her to any rehearsal or anything like that.

You did a very great job and I'm so glad we found you and that you were the one who married us. 

Thanks so so much!  Lindsey and Matt


Rosa Elena & Inderjit - Married in the Old Town Square Gazebo at Mesilla, NM on July 5, 2011

Kim Bashor is amazing. She answered all our questions really quickly, offered us several ideas for the ceremony and she even gives you advise on how to pose for pictures!

We totally loved our ceremony and how Kim performed... it was just special and wonderful! She worked with us in a matter of days , really helpful and we even told her on 2 days before the wedding, where the ceremony would be performed. She even suggested places for us! Our family and friends loved every single detail.. We highly recommend her, you won't regret it! She worths every single penny you pay for her services, she's an A+ Officiant!  Elena

Kim is the best! From a simple civil wedding.. we ended up having an intimate special ceremony. We totally loved Kim's suggestions, she's always in touch with you and will answer all your questions. She's always available and as her slogan says, the ceremony will truly reflect the couple's love. Our wedding was also a last-minute wedding, we contacted her 5 days before the day and she was really flexible and understanding. Kim.. thank you!!  Elena and Inderjit

Kim is such an outstanding person. She was always so quick to reply and answer all of our questions. She had so many different ceremony ideas it was very easy to find and customize a ceremony that fit who Cassi and I are together. Kim's flexibility was a huge plus for us. We didn't have an exact date until about 3 weeks before due to my return home from Afghanistan. Our wedding went PERFECT! Her services are worth way more than she charges.

Chelsea & Brent - Married in Anacortes, WA on December 18, 2010

Kim had about 3 days to plan our wedding! She did an AMAZING job with such short notice, she was more than helpful with recommendations on ideas for the ceremony, she provided us with numerous options and helped us create the perfect custom ceremony to fit us. Even when my husband made some last minute changes to his vows, she was kind enough to take what he had written and make a new keepsake book for us and then send it to us in the mail. She also took care of all the paperwork! In addition to everything she did for us, she gave us a great price! I was more than impressed with her professionalism, as well as her kind hearted genuine nature! You are truly missing out if you choose anyone else. THANK YOU SO MUCH KIM!! we could not have asked for anyone better.



Natasha & Dan - Married in the Fort Casey Lighthouse, Coupeville, WA on November, 28, 2010

Kim Bashor of is absolutely amazing! I first emailed her for info with less an 2 weeks to go before our big day. She got back to me quick, answered all my questions and started working with me that very day. She is very sweet and really knows her stuff. We made contact via phone and email, she was ontop of everything, even the changes i made in our ceremony 2 days before our wedding. I would fully recommend her to anyone who is planning their wedding. She is wonderful!!


Maria & Daniel - Married at the Peace Arch, Blaine on July 28, 2010

We knew Kim was the perfect person to marry us from the first conversation we had with her. We were planning a destination wedding in Washington from our home in Canada, and she went above and beyond to give us all the information needed. Her ideas for the ceremony were fabulous, and she was very receptive to changes and suggestions we had. The way she included our children in the ceremony made our day better than we could have dreamed of. Kim is such a warm and genuine person, it was an absolute pleasure to have her marry us. Kim is a true professional - great communication, well organized, creative ideas, and very receptive to what we wanted. We would highly recommend her services.


Danielle & Vincent - Married in Oak Harbor on June 26, 2010

I was honored to have Kim wed my husband and I. She was so professional, and although my wedding arrangements with her were made about two weeks in advance, she was able to fit us into her schedule with no problems. After the ceremony, she presented us with a nicely put together pamphlet with our ceremony and vows in it. I HIGHLY recommend her services.


Betsy & Mike - Married in Oak Harbor on June 4, 2010

Both Mike and I wanted to say another heartfelt thanks for the absolutely wonderful wedding ceremony on Friday!  Everyone enjoyed themselves so much.  It was the perfect ceremony for Mike and I....full of family, smiles, and a bit of jumble!  You were wonderful.  We enjoyed ourselves so much.
