"Our wedding got off to a rollicking start when Bev and Jerry walked down the aisle, in costume and with bells ringing, at our garden ceremony. They brought a sense of whimsy and fun to the entire afternoon -- not many people have had the good fortune to hear a 'wedding cry.' The cry was also written just for us! Highly, highly recommended!"

Hilary and Larry Grant
