Ilona & David
Tom Esakin was fabulous. He was so helpful, polite and courteous. The day of the wedding he mingled and chatted with the guests made our day very special. Thank you so much Tom.
Sarah & Erick
Thomas Esakin was very easy going but still kept us on a schedule up to our wedding day to make sure we hit all requirements including sign-off of the ceremony text together, our individual vows, and helped us register our marriage license. This was very helpful with all other planning aspects we were managing ourselves. We live in the US and we felt Thomas was very accommodating setting up Skype meetings with us and helping us to customize a ceremony that we felt comfortable with. Thomas is also very warm, has a great speaking voice, and we were very happy with the way he lead our ceremony.
