A love letter is a romantic way to express heart-felt feelings in written form. Whether delivered by hand, mail, carrier pigeon, or discreetly left in a secret location, the letter can be anything from short and sweet, to long and endearing. Your wedding ceremony is one of the great love letters of life. It is a genuine expression of your commitment to one another. Whether you choose to keep it private, share it with family and friends, or shout it from the rooftop, your celebration should compliment your personalities. Together, with your imagination and our expertise, we’ll create an unforgettable wedding ceremony that is true to you! We look forward to providing a voice to your love letter.
Anita is happily married to her best friend! They hopped on a plane in the middle of Ontario's freezing winter, and exchanged their vows on the white sand beaches of Miami! She lives with their 3 fur babies and enjoys time outdoors, traveling, date nights, and food and wine. Aside from her strong love of animals (and her husband, daughter and bonus children too of course!), her passion is helping her couples plan their dream destination weddings & honeymoons.
