We cannot thank Tim Carey enough!! He was there early, was completely professional, executed perfectly what was asked of him and his talent is unbelieveable. He had everyone in tears at the end of the wedding because his performance was so moving! He made our daughter's wedding ceremony so special and memorable and we will never forget him.
