| ~~ Congratulations to you and your fiance. My wife and I were married last Oct. and Fr. Ayotte was absolutely the best we could have ever hoped for.
The Rev. was personable and had a great sense of humor which we very much appreciated. He was flexible and willing to do what we wanted rather than forcing us into a mold. He allowed us to write our own ceremony and even provide samples in advanc! including scripts, readings, etc. He was easily accessible via email and most responsive...even late into the evening! Following our initial meeting at a local coffee shop, I recall having one add'l phone consult with him regarding some questions and the rest simply fell into place.
He interjected by speaking directly to us during the ceremony using phrases like, "you're both terrific" or "your both doing just fine" as well as directly to those attending using phrases like "they'll be seeking your guidance and friendship in the future, in fact, they'll be knocking on your door soon." Although, not in our script he knew exactly what to do to put us at ease. We received countless compliments about the ceremony and the way it was delivered. Our guests said, "We really liked the minister" and "The Rev. really seems to enjoy what he does" as well as, "Your minister had a great sense of humor and seemed to put you at ease."
I could probably go on and on, but know that we have no regrets having selected Fr. Ayotte for our special day. Rest assured, he will do what's right to create that memorable day for you and yours.
~~ Thank you so much, Rev. Melanie, for being such a big part of such a big day for us. We are so happy to have found you. We got a lot of compliments on you!! And, like I said, we'll definitely be recommending you to our friends as they get married!! Ben and Tessa ~~ I felt like we couldn't of made a better choice. We had a hard time finding someone to marry us outside the church, and Fr. Stephen explained that his daughter had the same troubles and this is why he does what he does. The day of the wedding, he was AMAZING. During our vows, my wife and I got choked up a little bit, and he leaned it and said something to alleviate the moment, and made everyone laugh. He won the crowd, our parents and us over. He has a wonderful presence on the day of the wedding. Regarding his promptness, he is very flexible to our schedules and very prompt. In summary, I'm so excited for you and think you couldn't choose a better person to marry you and your fiance. ~~ Rev. Melanie, Thank you!!!! The ceremony was so wonderful, we couldn't have been happier with how everything went, everyone was commenting on how great it was. Thank you again,Sarah and Tim ~~ Congrats to you and your fiance. Yes we used Rev. Ayotte back in June. It was a wonderful day and Rev. Ayotte did an Incredible job! I recommend him highly and without reservation. We met with him once a few months prior and spoke on the phone as the day approached. He is very easy to deal with and put us at ease immediately. He has a dry sense of humor that everyone at our wedding got a kick out of. Several of our guests asked us about him- they were impressed with the style, class, and relaxed atmosphere he created. You will have a memorable day with Rev. Ayotte, say Hi to him for us. Mike and Polly ~~ About Fr. Stephen:
Just got in from our amazing Honeymoon in Punta Cana, DR, where we had a fabulous time. I've been thinking about you two all week and wanted to thank you SO much for everything you did to make our day absolutely perfect. We have had so many comments on what a wonderful job everyone thought you did - especially by throwing in a little humor here and there. We got to see a video of the ceremony before we went off on the honeymoon and it was really fun to watch the two of us laugh all the way thru the ceremony - it was very fitting to our personalities.
So thank YOU for being a part of our day - we will never forget you :) I will spread the word on how impressed we were with every aspect of your service - and please feel free to send potential brides to me for a glowing reference. There's not one thing we would have changed about anything.
Samantha & Mark ~~ Rev. Melanie - thank you very, very much for all of your help. Several people told us what a perfect fit you were for us and our wedding.
