What's In A Name?

 Qu'est-ce qu'il y a dans un nom? | Was ist in einem Namen?

They say a rose is still a rose if called by any other name. By that definition a gift is still a gift if called a Petit Cadeau. Maybe it would be easier to call my ministry Small Gift Ministries but it doesn't sound as romantic as it does in French. It definitely sounds better than Kleines Geschenk, don't you think?

If you've visited my website, you may already know how I came up with the name for my ministry.  But for those of you just getting acquainted with me, here is that story:

In June 1978, a couple (my parents) wed in a hurry under circumstances that did not allow the bride to follow family tradition. Twenty-five years later, with hopes of fulfilling the bride's family traditions surrounding marriage, Petit Cadeau Ministries was born, also in a hurry. The bride's family traditions were still not met but wonderful memories were made from a small gift, or Petit Cadeau, from daughter to parents.

With countless weddings for family and friends under my belt, I opened my services to the public in 2016. Whether you are interested in an intimate affair or a grand celebration; a ceremony steeped in ritual or natural spirituality; a destination wedding or something closer to home, I am happy to share my "Petit Cadeau" with you.
