Q: Are you willing to meet with us before our wedding? -M.P
A: Hi Melanie! Yes, we do have meetings in person typically a week to ten days in advance just to make sure that everyone is on the same page. If that can't happen for some reason, possibly schedule conflicts or distance, we also offer the option to do it over the phone or group meeting apps.
Q: Can we request songs that are not on your song list? -S.J.
