    We couldn't be happier with the service you provided. You were very professional but personal and thoughtful. Even though it was a winter out door wedding, near a lake no less, you provided us with the service we wanted without hesitation. It was a pleasure to deal with some one so knowledgeable and considerate, I would highly recommend your services to anyone. Thank you once again for doing such a wonderful job! Sincerely, Tammy Vreeland
