Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers of my brides and grooms who have temporarily sacrificed their sanity and serenity to help with their children’s weddings. Listing all the tasks they’ve completed would take pages. They’ve done everything from guest lists and rehearsal dinners to place cards and favors and more. Mothers have helped me to understand the relationships between family members and to anticipate the significant moments of their children’s wedding day. My deepest thanks to all of them.
