I officiated a surprise renewal of vows ceremony for two couples from the U.K. What made this unique was the husbands initiated the celebration of their 45th wedding anniversaries as a surprise for their wives. The ceremony was beautiful and very emotional.
Please read what they wrote to me:
Dear Reverend Susan: Just a brief note to again thank you for conducting such a beautiful ceremony for us all on the Siesta Key Beach. It was a truly a moving and emotional service and we are so glad that you were part of it for us. I wanted to say an extended thanks on behalf of us all. Many thanks for forwarding the service to us. It was lovely to be able to re-read it and share it with our children. It was a truly memorable occasion and one that we will never forget. We feel blessed to have met you and again thank you for giving us such a personal occasion to remember forever. Many grateful thanks, Shane and Andrew.
