It was about 6 weeks before the wedding and we decided to get a live musician, preferably a guitarist to play at our tiny event of 25 people. Let me tell you that getting a hold of these larger companies for such a small event was impossible and/or they wanted an exorbitant amount of money. When I contacted Chris, I thought he would be 1 of many replies. He was the only one who could do it-- and he was happy to help us figure out what we needed. He was the ultimate professional and conducted everything through phone and email which was the best for us because we were so busy with work. And when we finally met him on the wedding day, he showed up early and played the most gorgeous music for the ceremony and the reception. Of course, I (the bride) was late and didn't hear most of it. :-) But I heard it was wonderful from all of our guests. I'm so utterly grateful for his help and his service. If you don't use him, you're missing out.
Chris provided music for my vow renewal ceremony, everyone loved him! The music was just gorgeous, and he is very professional and easy to work with. I HIGHLY recommend him!
Chris was very professional and easy to work with as we discussed the music for the wedding. He arrived well in advance of the ceremony to have a final discussion and the music was perfect for the occasion. A talented musician who I would highly recommend!
Chris was truly amazing, he played our wedding ceremony and reception for our very small 20 person wedding in Washington, DC. Chris's music was angelic and so soothing and uplifting. I used to play classical guitar, so this meant so much to me to have Chris play for our special day. Everyone in my family has told me since how wonderful the music was and how it made the whole day come together like magic. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone. He is so kind, professional, respectful and easy to work with. We feel so lucky that we were able to have him with us. He is amazing! Thank you Chris!!
Chris was fantastic, professional, personable, and an absolute pleasure to listen to. Our event was very small, but the ambiance he provided was suitable for hundreds, and we so much appreciated him making our daughters wedding her dream come true.
