I can’t thank Jerry enough. He was so awesome with communicating and working with me. He took the initiative to drive out to my wedding venue a couple weeks before my wedding to meet with its coordinator and ensure the sound system was in place and that the sound would be great. He showed up plenty early for the set up and I even teared up after hearing him play walking down the aisle. He was a huge part in making my wedding ceremony SO special. I would definitely work with him again and I highly recommend him! Talented, trustworthy, and an awesome communicator. THANK YOU!!
Response from Jerry Breiner:
it was such an AWESOME wedding ceremony! ...even when the train drove by !!!...Kelly looked amazing, and there was such a happy vibe to it all. I am proud and glad to have been a part of it - thank you again!
Jerry was there early and ready to entertain us. He was super friendly, and exceeded our expectations. We could not have chosen a better artist to make the wedding prosession better. Thank's Jerry!
