Notes & Reviews:

The joyful sounds of the perfect wedding day! The bride is glowing, the groom stands at the ready, and Polkastra launches into some rousing processionals to set the mood. The ceremony proceeds to an accompaniment of angelic vocals. The registry is signed, and a triumphant recessional propels the newlyweds and their well-wishers on their merry way to the reception.

Los Angeles Times
Wild, idiosyncratic, and gripping.
