Extremely Professional & Accommodating!!

From the beginning of our planning, Bill was very helpful and accommodating to what we had envisioned for our wedding! He made the process so smooth and stress-free despite us being all over the place in the days leading up to the wedding. We are so grateful for his flexibility and professionalism throughout the whole process! Our family and friends loved him and we are certainly grateful for him being a part of the most important part of our day!
