We are still not sure how we were lucky enough to score Taylor Carson to perform at our wedding ceremony. In addition to being to being amazingly talented, Taylor is simply a genuine, down-to-earth guy and nice person. Coordinating the music to be performed at our ceremony was easily the least stressful aspect of our wedding.
Taylor was the first of three musicians to respond to our request on GigSalad.com. We asked him for samples of his music and he immediately provided us with links to his web sites. We were impressed by what we heard -- his style was exactly what we were looking for – and to see that he had several albums under his belt.
When we first met face-to-face with Taylor, we could tell he was our kind of people. It was important to him that we were his kind of people as well, which we appreciated. Having himself been recently married, Taylor understood where our heads were and totally got our vision for how he would fit into our wedding. It was evident that Taylor is passionate about his art, but not obnoxiously so; he is gracious, appreciative of his success, and stays connected to the community.
During the months leading up to our wedding, Taylor was just as responsive as he was upon our first contact. We felt so comfortable with Taylor that we gave him the flexibility to select the processional and recessional from a list of ten songs we liked and to play whatever he wanted, including his own songs, as the guests arrived prior to the ceremony. Our guests had lots of positive comments about his talent, selection of songs, and perfectly low-key performance.
We hadn't heard of Taylor Carson prior to our wedding, but are now absolutely fans and we look forward to seeing/hearing him again at one of his many local live performances.
