I meant to send this email to you on Sunday, but I was exhausted ( and exhilarated) at the same time. I also wanted to sit and think of everything that happened these last few weeks and especially on Sunday, before I could get my thoughts down.
You know how nervous and anxious I have been about Riane's shower. I know that I have pestered you and many times, have been overly demanding.
I'm not sure you had a chance to hear some of my speech on Sunday, when I thanked you and the staff, but I reiterated that I have a very judgmental family. Throughout this whole process, I kept worrying, that you could never meet my (and especially my mother's) overly high standards and expectations. I was so nervous in the days leading up to the shower. I kept doubting that you would be able to deliver all you had promised.
I remember when we first met, you assured me that you would exceed my expectations. I have to admit that even though you were always honest and sincere with me, in the back of my mind, I still worried that there was no way you could ever exceed my expectations. After Sunday, I have to admit that you were right! The menu that you and your fabulous executive chef Johnnathan planned for me was more than I could ever have hoped for.
Your staff, and especially Andre were helpful, attentive and made sure that we all felt special and well cared for.
My family and especially the guests continue to rave about the shower!!! This is exactly the reaction that I wanted. But most importantly, Riane was so happy. This was a beautiful celebration for my beautiful girl. Originally she had not wanted a shower, but even she has not stopped talking about her shower. The huge smile on her face made all my stress and anxiety worth while.
I am forever grateful to you and your staff.
I know that you and your chef have something extra special planned for the wedding and I can't wait to be dazzled again.
Thank you so much. I will never doubt you again.
