Michel was very accommodating. All of our requests were met with the upmost professionalism. We even had a late request of Michel to walk the couple into the reception tent and he was more than happy to do it. I would highly recommend Michel for any event where a bagpiper is called upon. We had over 200 guests at the wedding and everyone commented on the "special touch" that Michel added to the ceremony.
