CelebrationReviewed on May 7, 2021From Saint Augustine, FL

A surprise engagement was arranged in Saint Augustine Florida. We had a group at the event but our goal was to walk in a procession from an outdoor promenade to travel a few blocks down St George Street to Scarlett O'Hara's. As I am the mother of the bride, I was trying to dream up how to include something special for the event. Music! Sounds of a bagpiper was the bright idea. Tim Atkins, he was flexible with evolving plan and 6hr time difference. Tim's performance was exceptional and 'soulful'. The performance was a great surprise for our party and everyone in earshot of us. Wonderful music, the crowds parted & our celebration went to another level of love.

Tim Akins:

Theresa, It was my absolute pleasure to be included n your daughter’s engagement party. I look forward to working with you again for the ceremony in 2022…: until then take care! Cheers, Tim
