I would like to thank all the family and friends who have supported me over the years. Even though there have been some struggles and tough times with the economy I have been able to keep doing what I love and be my own boss! I would also like to thank all my brides for letting me a small part of their special day! I feel very blessed to be able to do what I love and still have time for my family.
To all the haters and nay Sayers, SHAME ON YOU!
