Brian is a proffesional of the utmost caliber, and a gentleman as well. I would recommend him most highly for any event, but his sensitivity to the needs of a wedding seems to be a special talent he posseses. His talents lent an unforgettable element to our wedding, and elevated the event to a much more sophisticated level than it would of otherwise been the case. Thank you sir, for being a part of a day that will be remembered in our two families!
