Christopher offers an enormous selection of pieces to choose from - we were delighted with the music during the ceremony as well as during the social hour. He took care of all the details associated with sound for the ceremony - including things we would not have thought of. He is a true professional and easy to work with. Everything was perfect!

Chris was very friendly and very helpful in the planning and execution of the ceremony music at our wedding. He not only talked me through the details of the ceremony, but even collaborated with my wedding officiant to make sure that all of the cues were timed perfectly! He made planning the music easy and stress-free. His music was beautiful and his classical guitar set the mood perfectly for our romantic wedding beneath two trees! I would recommend him to a friend in a heartbeat!

Chris was great to work with. Wedding planning can be stressful, especially when it comes to ensuring all details are squared away with all your vendors. When it came to Chris, I didn't have to worry about a thing. Even though my venue was untraditional (posing some logistical challenges), he had thought of everything, and addressed it all with me in a very organized manner. He was prompt, professional, and very flexible (a few weeks before the wedding I decided we wanted him to play during cocktail hour too - no problem). The music was beautiful and we received a lot of compliments

We hired Chris to play our orchard ceremony, and as background music for our cocktail hour and dinner. We could not have been more happy with his performance. After having heard him play I can truly say that he is a master at his craft. He was able to create the perfect atmosphere for our day.

On top of that, Chris was phenomenal to work with. In an industry filled with vendors that can make things more difficult/frustrating, Chris was the definition of professional. Using his website as a tool, we were able to plan our event with Chris in just 30 minutes on the phone. His packages are easy to understand and pricing was (I felt) affordable for most.
