    Hello everyone! My name is Ann Marie Charest and I have been a member since 2008. I appreciate how professionally this website/group is presented and the majority of my wedding opportunities come from you. I have upgraded my account slowly each year, expanding the towns that I cover and added newer pictures, videos and testimonials. My only suggestion would be an opportunity for our couples to leave their thoughts/testimonials on their own after the wedding. Unless this is already offered and I don’t understand what to do, I would say that this website meets all of my needs. And thank you, Loretta for carrying on your Mother’s work. She was a lovely person and I always enjoyed talking with her.
