Now that things are settling down a bit, Ned and I wanted to send along a word of thanks for your wonderful work at our daughter’s Sept. wedding in Dedham.

You somehow managed to enable every guest — representing a very broad range of musical tastes! — to have a wonderful evening. Those who wanted to dance had a great time with your selection of songs. Those who preferred conversation were able to enjoy the music without having to shout as they chatted.

Your announcements of the various events were so clear and warm — they kept things moving effortlessly all evening long.

And a special thanks for fulfilling our last-minute request the evening before — to have microphones at the wedding. (We didn’t realize until the rehearsal on Friday, that it would be helpful to have some amplification.) The sound during the ceremony was excellent — everyone could hear clearly, and yet somehow it still felt intimate and memorable.

Many thanks, Mike, for your expertise and talent and support. It was an indispensable part of the festivities.

Leslie & Ned, Newton
