Our wedding was this past weekend and I couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect event!!! Thomas went beyond all expectations I had about my day. He was organized, helped me with stuff that was not even “his job”. He is truly blessed with the talent to calm crazy brides! Our day would not have been so magical if it weren’t for this wonderful and professional staff! Thank you for all you did, it’s a day we will always cherish!
