Reverend Candace,

Thank you so much for officiating our ceremony on March 23rd at the Sea Ranch Lodge. It was such a beautiful ceremony and location to get married.  We can’t thank you enough for all the time you devoted to us - on the phone leading up to our big day and on the wedding day.  It was so nice to meet you in person and we were so grateful for your openminded approach and allowing us to work with you to create a ceremony meaningful to us.  If we return to Sea Ranch for anniversary we’ll be sure to look you up!

         ~ Sincerely, Ryan and Lan, Chicago, IL

Dear Candace,

What a cherished memory you will always be for Kevin and I.  You were the best.  Everything we wanted and more.  

         ~ Love, Bruce and Kevin, Palm Springs CA
