A Message From Dave:
It’s been said that one’s integrity is best measured by how you deal with the bad times rather than how you act during the good. In what some say is one of the worst times for the Wedding Industry, I’ve never been prouder of some of my colleagues for how they’re handling their businesses, yet at the same time, I’ve never been more disappointed in how I’ve seen others treat their clients.
Those of us who get to do weddings must never forget that our couples are planning the biggest day of their lives, and we’ve been lucky enough to have been chosen to be a part of that. They’re now reaching out to us to help them in their time of need. Are we going to be their ally through this process or another obstacle in their way?
When I formed my company, I founded it on 3 core principles:
1) Do the right thing. Always
2) Only work with people I’m the right fit for
3) Over promise, then over deliver
Recent events have created a new 4th principle which is the line I keep saying to my clients:
4) Dave’s got your back
I MUST live up to these principals not just at their weddings, but in helping them postpone, reimagine, and even cancel their events. While it’s tough, I know it’s infinitely more difficult for them. My focus right now is to make this process a little easier and to put a smile on their face while doing it. I’ve reached out to my couples to let them know I’m doing things like waiving postponement fees, holding any new dates they’re considering, prioritizing them over new business, automatically holding dates 1 year from their current if they haven’t yet selected an alternative, and more.
By doing these things my clients have let me know how much they appreciate my helpful, positive, and proactive approach. I’ve received some amazing feedback from them like:
“Honestly, I just cried! You’re the first person to truly be kind and human about this whole thing! Thank you so much! Believe me, it doesn’t go unnoticed. I’ll let everyone know of how kind, professional and awesome you are!” - Jennifer & Christos (August 2020 Wedding Postponing to May 2021)
“I can’t tell you how great it is to hear from you! First, thank you so much for reaching out and being proactive about this situation! You’re amazing! As always, we’re looking forward to working with you.” - Kimberly & Jeremy (August 2020 Wedding Postponing to Future Date)
“Thank you much Dave for being the great guy you are. Thanks for still being excited for us and the redo date.” - Melissa & Dave (June 2020 Wedding Postponing to Future Date)
Now, and in the future we as wedding pros will need to be ready to answer the question “What will you do if there is another pandemic?” I can answer with all integrity and confidence “Exactly what I did the last time.”
Now ask yourself “Who do I want on my team that will have my back no matter what?” If you’ve read this message, then you know Dave will.

Organized, Entertaining and Helpful
Dave was amazing! My fiancee and I have some eclectic taste in music and not only did our wedding soundtrack feel so much like us, we had a blast! Planning a wedding during a pandemic (without a planner) was not the easiest task, but Dave made sure that everything the day of went off without a hitch, from making sure everything started on time, to making sure we were fed and hydrated. I highly recommend Dave, he was professional, informative, friendly, and most importantly, fun!Sent on 04/07/2021

Our wedding was easy, because of Dave!
Our wedding was easy. I know. I know. You're neck deep in BS from all sides right now, so you're thinking "There's no way!" or more likely "Screw this lucky pr**k." But really it was. A big part of why it was easy is: we hired Dave. From our first meeting, my wife and I knew we were in good hands. Dave came to the first meeting (almost a year out), ready to discuss what we envisioned the big day being. Not just musically, mind you. The whole picture. He had prepared worksheets to help us nail down the music we wanted. He hunted down every specific song we asked for and then filled in the rest with GREAT music that flowed with the songs we picked. And then he helped us with our timeline. And coordinated with our venue. And coordinated with our day-of coordinator. He never forgot a single detail. Often, he was the only person we had hired that had a clear picture of what we wanted. We never had to chase him down (again, often, he chased US down). Most importantly, he prioritized what we wanted. he was relaxed, and collected. Easy going about what we didn't care about, but an absolute bull-dog about what we told him were our priorities. Day of, a few things went wrong - like they always do. And Dave kept things together for us. It was just easy, because of Dave. And I am eternally grateful for his help. We had over had of the guests specifically compliment us on him. This ranged from our friends in their late twenties, to Aunts, and great Aunts in their sixties and NINETIES. He killed it. And I have no doubt he will do the same for your wedding. I hope your big day turns out exactly as you dreamed. When things go wrong (and they will), remember the crowd will follow you. It's your day. Laugh it off and they will too. Dave will help with that, too. Cheers!Sent on 10/29/2019
