You... Read More don't get much more professional, top notch dedication than that!

He will work with you, your family, friends, vendors, etc. to make sure your special day is the way you want it! He makes it a point to learn who is who, and will call everyone by name - very impressive and appreciated by many!! Danny and I have the utmost respect for Paul, and hope we will have a chance to work with him again in the future!
