Mike was super helpful, professional and very nice to work with. We only had three months to plan our wedding so we didn't have time to choose every single song , so we left it up to Mike (we just chose our first dance song). Every song he chose was perfect and he let our guests to choose certain songs during the reception. He also made us a monogram which turned out very lovely.
