    I can't even begin to elaborate on behalf of my husband and myself for how amazing our experience was with the Metropolitan.
    Tracey was amazing to work with. Extremely accommodating, flexible and understanding through the whole process making our wedding planning a complete breeze.
    We 100% recommend working with the Metroplitan ?
