Josh was exceedingly professional - he was super responsive, made things incredibly easy by having plenty of song ideas, and quickly set up a contract and made payment via paypal very simple. I didn't have an event coordinator and so ended up dealing with a plethora of details in the moments leading up to the ceremony (including changing ceremony location due to rain) but it was clear that Josh had done this so many times that he needed minimal direction. He and the violinist (which he recommended!) pulled off a phenomenal performance. I highly recommend him!

Joshua was absolutely wonderful. We had a few songs in mind but otherwise left the playlist up to him. Many of our guests commented on how great his addition was to the ceremony. He was very prompt with returning messages and was really easy to work with. We both highly recommend Joshua for your big day.
