So Happy About Handfasting

We were so happy we chose to be married by Rev. Pamela.  She is a warm loving person and made us feel so comfortable planning our wedding. The moment we walked in the door of her charming home we had a good feeling. This was our 2nd marriage and we chose to incorporate the hand fasting cord ritual  into our ceremony. Each of our five children helped tie the knot. It was a beautiful day we will never forget. We highly recommend Rev Pam and Pine Manor!
