Bill was definitely the right choice for our October wedding. He played acoustic guitar for both the processional in the ceremony and during our cocktail hour. He was even kind enough to learn a new song that I requested. I wanted to walk down the aisle to an instrumental of Train's "Marry Me." He learned it and played it wonderfully. He also dressed in a suit, just as I asked.
I was sad not to be at my own cocktail hour to hear Bill play (we were doing pictures) but my guests said he did a fantastic job and they really enjoyed his "easy listening music." I think he nailed it in not becoming the center of attention but allowing the music to help create an ideal ambience that allowed people to still hold conversations without having to talk over the music.
Bill was also a very effective communicator throughout the wedding planning process. He was easy to get a hold of and always responded quickly and with precise answers to my questions. Compared to some of my other wedding vendors, Bill was a God-send. I hope I have the opportunity to host another event one day which will require his services.

Response from Bill Binnings:
Thanks, Krystle! If there was ever a "story book" wedding, it was yours on that perfect day by the pond, quacking ducks adding background "ambience". It was my honor and privilege for you to include me as a part of it all and become a lasting memory of a perfect day in your lives!!
All the Best to Both of You!!!
