My husband and I found Taylor on Gigsalad in the early stages of planning. While hunting for a venue, we visited several wineries with regular acoustic music and always loved the ambiance and tone it sets for the scene. We wanted a DJ for the reception, but still wanted to add a live, acoustic element to the day. We explored our options, and Taylor's videos, description, and reviews immediately sold us. After meeting with him in person, we sent him our deposit soon after to play our ceremony, cocktail hour, and first dance.
In the months leading up to our event, Taylor provided great suggestions for each part of our event. When we were deciding on a first dance song, he quickly sent us a demo of a song we were considering to help us make our decision. Once we decided on some must-have songs (only 3- processional, recessional, and first dance), we sent him the artists and titles, as well as a few spotify playlists to other music we liked for potential cocktail songs, and he took it from there.
Even in the chaos of the day, I remember how incredible he sounded on my way up the aisle, on the way back down, through our family photos during cocktail hour, and through our first dance. We can't count how many guests asked for his name and raved about his sound. Several guests said they felt like they were at a concert during our first dance, and felt themselves shifting attention between his performance and the newlyweds, which was the exact environment we were after. In short, Taylor was incredible. He can take any song you're after and put his acoustic spin on it, and his endless mental magazine of music adapted to the scene and the crowd, which was perfect for guests ranging from age 21-81. My only regret is taking pictures during cocktail hour because we missed half of his performance. Thank you, Taylor!
