CEREMONY SITE

Their non-religious, love story ceremony was authentically theirs and unforgettable! The Park Savoy Estate with its lush gardens, historic and serene courtyard provided the perfect setting for this heart-centered wedding ceremony!

PRE-MARRIAGE COMMUNICATION COACHING

Although initially they were not interested in marriage coaching sessions, after the first session they told me that they found the tips I shared to be really helpful! Another benefit of coaching is that I really get to know and love the couples I marry.  With this always being my goal, I must say I especially adore and appreciate Irim and Mahmud, a pediatric anesthesiologist and a vice president of an investment firm because their hearts are even more beautiful than their impressive careers. By the way, their wedding was featured in the New York Times.

POWER OF LOVE

Their custom-tailored wedding ceremony celebrated the transformative power of love in all of its forms -- the love of parents for their child; the love of peers who pledge their lives to each other; the love that unites family and friends.

EXCHANGE OF RINGS

This is how we celebrated the exchange of Irim and Mahmud's rings:

"Rings are an ancient symbol. Circles-the symbol of unity, of wholeness, and of perfection; of the sun, the earth, and the universe. These rings are singular and individual, yet they represent a unity that has no beginning and no end."

On this sprawling, peaceful estate, we were able to create an experience that invited all in attendance to connect with the love that lives in every heart.
