@Madi.So.Excited:  I would pay him what he asks and then give them a basket or another type of gift with a card and a tip.

I would pay him a tip in gratuity with a Thank You card.  Around my area its 18% gratuity.

+1 to the generous gratuity and a thoughtful thank you card. Also, if there’s some way to review him online (yelp, tripadvisor, weddingwire, whatever), give him a glowing review. That will mean a lot to him.

I think a gift card and then a glowing review of their services, as well as an offer to be a client reference for future bookings (if they deserve it, of course).

I agree with PPs on giving a generous tip… but wanted to add, be sure to tip on the amount he SHOULD HAVE charged!
