We are so happy that we found Keith for our Wedding Day! He brought such positive energy and incredible talent to our Ceremony. His extensive experience and skill allowed for him to be able to adapt to exactly what we were looking for. We received many compliments on his work! We highly recommend Keith!! -Nina & Ryan O'Neill
