    BEYOND amazing!

    I could go on and on about how wonderful our experience was with James. If you're debating hiring him, don't, just do it. You will never regret it. Due to COVID, my husband and I decided to cancel our big October wedding, but still have our wedding with families only. Like many others we were really bummed to make this decision and knew we would be sacrificing a lot, but this decision brought us to James. I called James 2 months before our wedding date, in need of someone to help make our day beautiful and special, as we were starting from scratch and getting married in a new city. Within 5 minutes of talking on the phone, he had the entire day planned out, and knew how to make it so meaningful with only 17 people. He was professional, funny and so pleasant to work with. He is AMAZING at his job. I trusted him completely, and was in awe at how beautiful he made our backyard wedding. Afterwards, I showed photos to my friends, who said it looked like a fairytale, and they couldn't get over how beautiful he was able to make everything. He also made the process so stress-free. He made our wedding feel like this was the wedding we were meant to have all along. I can't express how thankful we are for him. He's the best!!!
