Dear Captain Wendy and Captain Mark,
We wanted to thank you so very much for our wonderful wedding, it lived up to all our expectations and more. A truly memorable day! We are still getting over the jetlag at the moment but have printed off some of the wedding pictures that really capture the days fun and superb setting. We hope you enjoyed our wedding day as much as we did and look forward to recieving the wedding certificates in due course.
Once again many thanks to you all,
Nicky and Geoff Blundell xx
Now that we are home, we got in last night, I wanted to take a moment to send you this letter.
Karen and I can't begin to tell you how great and how we impressed we were/are with you and your service. Feel free to use us a reference.
When Karen found your website, I was skeptical because everything sounded "too good to be true" yet there was an underlying sincerity with how things were written up (if it rains you get wet as an example). And then the promptness that you got back to us with the info to our questions and the package you put together for our needs and wants impressed me. No question was too trivial for you to answer for us---having come from a service based business and career I know how time consuming and petty these things are yet you took the time with each thing.
You also impressed me how you catered to our 3 boys and their needs (in advance as well as the day of our wedding).
The day prior to our scheduled wedding the weather was bad and the pending forecast the night before, well let me just say that it surprised me when you called and offered to switch days to make the event more pleasurable for us (which it was). You said that was the first step to a good marriage by being flexible and I do agree but it is also a testament to a good, reputable business.
The service was tailored to our wants with some great suggestions and kept very warm, friendly, family oriented which again is a testament to your integrity and your business. My son was very happy and thrilled when you ran off and brought out the plastic cup for me to "break the glass", that was very thoughtful.
Of course, any successful business is not a one person show----at our wedding Captain Dave and Chief Cook and Bottle Washer (plus Craig Cat instructer) Spencer were with you (plus we met several more from your business on the dock) but you were at the helm, the one we dealt with over the months prior to our wedding (the buck stops here so to speak)---so even though the praise goes to you, it is meant for all of you. Along with the praise comes the complaints----------since I have none, I guess you can say that we are very, very, very pleased.
When we came home from our honeymoon, what a thrill and pleasure to find the picture cd and the dvd already in our mail.
Wendy, we both want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for what you did.
Karen and Rich, Philadelphia
Thanks for making our wedding so special. We couldn¡¯t have asked for better weather, which made the day even more memorable. We have (and will continue to) spread the word about the fantastic service you provide¡from your fun personalities, to your professionalism, to how every detail was carried out. Captain Mark is an asset to your business; you guys took some awesome pictures! Thanks again,
Penny & Mike, New Port Richey, FL
Gee, where do I start. First is to tell you what a wonderful wedding you provided and the service provided by Windsong Charters was nothing less than first class. The experience with ALL of you on a personal level was what made everything something to remember. We felt we had the three best people to be at sea with that we could ask for. There was never any question about professionalism or the ability of anyone to go or do whatever needed to be done. We know that so many times you can do your best and some people don't appreciate what you All do but we do, and thank you for it. The wedding is supposed to be the focus of the day but for us it was the experience we had with the three of you and that wonderful vessel (the dolphins were nice too). Thank you Wendy and please pass this along to everyone at Windsong Charters and especially Rene and Capt. Bruce. Many thanks and we Will be in touch. Fair winds and Following seas.
Rick and BJ, Green Cove Springs, FL
We had a great time and we loved our sailing experience. Thanks again Wendy you thought of everything and we could not be happier!!! I have heard Stacey tell her friends and family ¡°You know when you have something in your mind and you never expect it to be just like what you thought it was going to be, well this time it was.¡± For Stacey that is huge most things never live up to her expectations. Thanks again!!!
Matthew & Stacey, Crawfordsville, IN
Everyone that was with us said that it was truly the "best day of their life", thank you SO much for making that happen. You made the day perfect for ALL of us, and I personally have never heard of any wedding "going perfect", but you truly made our wedding day perfect. I have very high standards (sometimes to a fault), you exceeded them. Exceeded! We love you guys,
The Stampers', Gainesville, FL
We are still on a high from the great time we had at our wedding. Everyone thinks that we had the most romantic sunset wedding ever. How excited we were to see our picture included in the photo gallery--We will have incredible memories for a lifetime!!!!!! You are the best.

We had a great experience with Windsong. They were very helpful and informative, and our pictures turned out great! They gave us tips for our cruise, and didn't cut our time short, though we ran late. Thanks for everything!
