Here's a couple you would love to love - DONNA and NATHAN DAY. Theirs was a destination wedding in gorgeous Carmel with a few of their closest Family and Friends.  The greatest thing about this is how they completely trusted their vendors, called us their friend and had a terrific time planning their wedding.  And the truth is, it was all a labor of love and that makes my job so much easier when you're having fun.  DONNA and NATE - from all of us to both of you, it was sheer joy and our greatest pleasure to have been a part of your special day.  Thank you so very much for your friendship, comraderie and enthusiasm!  And to my vendor comrads - thank you for giving extra care and dedication to creating a beautiful wedding for them ... your tireless work and efforts did not go unnoticed.  Thanks to my associate, DENNIS MENENDEZ who's always there when you need a friend's help.  My special KUDOS goes to photographer "extraordinnaire", MIKE STEELMAN, for stepping in at the very last minute when their original wedding photographer "jumped ship" (and probably skipped town - with their deposit, no less!).  And for my future Wedding Clients, even vendors - DO NOT even consider "Amie Morgan Photography" or take the risk of not having a photographer to shoot your Wedding!  Needless to say, they're on my infamous "Black List".  Mike, you saved their precious memories and on Donna and Nate's behalf, i can't thank you enough for all that you had done for them. You were a God send!
