“Thank you so much for the playing the bagpipes at our wedding- you were truly amazing! We have received so many compliments and you made our day so special. As I was watching my bride walk down the sandy aisle, the bagpipes accurately reflected the feelings of myself and all of the guests. You also had everyone on the beach captivated as they gathered to watch the bridal procession… and it was amazing when the entire beach started applauding when you were finished with the processional! What a great memory of our wedding that we will always cherish.”
