Dan was awesome!! The first thing that I realized was how knowledgeable he was of any song I could possibly think of having at our ceremony and Dan was able to tell us instantly if it would communicate on our big day. He was also a great listener, punctual and quick to reply when it came to hearing our requests, and working with my now-wife to make her day extra special, even when she changed her mind. Our ceremony started a little late, as our guests were waiting, but Dan continued unfazed, even adding some interest to the same piece. As a bonus, we were also quite happy with his formal appearance that coordinated well. So seamless. Thanks Dan!
