Unity Candle Service

“Dear Rev. Michael and Diane,

We thank you for your guiding in planning our ceremony and for the counseling of our future lives together! We loved working with you: we appreciated your counsel and guidance, and you did a perfect job at our ceremony. Our guests were deeply touched! And we love our vase….it’s sitting on our mantle and has gotten plenty of use (in a good way) already!

All our thanks and best wishes,

Kelly and Anders Stothman”
