And when he finds himself in the position of not knowing what he was going to do with his life, two friends who were about to get married offered to make their wedding for them. Although he thought about it at first because he was suspicious of his parties, he agreed because he had nothing to lose. There he discovered how much he enjoyed this. And then he launched my brand. Soon friends and acquaintances began to hire him and it was after two years that his conceptual weddings began to be identified among his audience.
