There are over 2,300 wedding vendors in Illinois, most of which I personally know and/or have heard of. I can honestly say that there are a number of vendors that don't provide the service that BSCE does to their clients. They have went above and beyond to service our clients and I am honored that BSCE is one of many fabulous partners!
I have had the priviledge of working with Paul Semanic at many weddings. He and his gifted colleagues bring a sense of professionalism and warmth to each occasion. They understand how to craft their music to the spirit of the bride and groom
