Thanks so much man! We finally got a chance to look through the photos last night, and we were just busting-up. You really managed to capture all the details from the day, even the tiny stuff like candy, beer, etc. Everything really came back to me when looking at the photos. I'm glad we got you to really document the whole ordeal, these photos will really help us remember all the little things.. Outstanding work - we couldn't be more satisfied!
