Wedding CeremonyReviewed on January 8, 2018From Niantic, CT

They did a great job at our wedding. There was a lot of confusion on our behalf and they still did a great job. I appreciate everything they did. Not to mention they drove a long way to do it. I would definitely book again. And to those getting married the steel drums sound so magical!!!
