"I am so grateful for everything you and Hayley did for us- everything ran so smoothly, and I really feel like you went above and beyond to make our wedding the best day ever! I had so much wonderful feedback from guests saying it was the most fun they'd ever had at a wedding- and that was all I ever wanted out of the day. "
