Michael was a joy to work with. He made our elopement in the time of Covid relaxing, personal, and most all fun. He naturally and empathetically put us at ease and shepherded is thru our heartfelt emotional sentiments, all the while smiling, like a proud father. He made our few minutes in the sun sweetly memorable and left us smiling inside ant out as we juanted off for our one night honeymoon.Sent on 05/23/2020
