They were the first couple to be wed in San Diego!!
Congratulations Bob and Tom!!
With only a few days to assure that the toppers made it in time for the event, One of Bob's relatives called in a panic... concerned that they wouldn't get there in time. She had two pairs of our marvelous Renellie Cake Toppers shipped to them, which we processed, picked and shipped that same day. One for another couple getting married that day.
Proudly representing Renellie Cake Top Figurines for nearly two years, we were thrilled to make it happen! In fact, they arrived a day or two EARLY!
We figure the customer was happy too! She sent this in an e-mail:
"I would just like to tell you how wonderful your representative Marcinho at your
New Jersey office is. He was so helpful and so positive. I had a very stressful task of getting 4 cake toppers for a wedding 3 business days away (they just started planning a week ago), and Marcinho helped me guarantee that the crucial cake toppers order went through on the very same day. I cannot rave enough about the lovely personality and fast, efficient skills of this representative. He deserves a raise!
Yours in San Diego,
Congratulations gentlemen! Thank you for your order, your courage, your pride and your example. May you have a marvelous MARRIED life together!

Military's policy stays unchanged
'Don't ask, don't tell' doesn't allow nuptials

At 7 a.m. today, former Marine Bob Lehman and Tom Felkner will be among the first gay couples to exchange vows at the downtown county building, cementing their 15-year relationship with the bonds of marriage.
There's little chance the corpsman will marry his partner, who also is in the military, any time soon because of the government's policy barring gay and lesbian service members from serving openly.
For now, “don't ask, don't tell” trumps “I do.”
