    Highly recommended

    On short notice Don was able to attend. This was a surprise re-marriage to my wife of 30 years and he was professional and brought about some ideas that really helped the occasion. Overall it went perfect.

    Highly Recommend!!

    Don was great to work with and helped relieve a great amount of stress for the ceremony, which is a huge help if you are a high strung bride like myself! He was very flexible and accommodating to my husband and I’s busy schedule. I had many compliments after the ceremony of how well he did!
