    On the beach wedding service with personal touches

    They were professional while being very personable with us and all the guests ... everyone felt comfortable and welcome. Their service was not only what they promised ... it was more! Impressive, kind, genuine and they truly wanted our day to be special, memorable and a relaxing experience. I felt confident they had everything just like we wanted and in perfect order. I highly recommend their services.

    Beachpeople Weddings & Photograph's reply:
