Let the romance and elegance of Spanish guitar enhance your wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. I usually play tranquil, beautiful music during the prelude. While you and your party are processing down the aisle, I can play classical pieces such as Canon in D, more exotic Spanish guitar, or special songs of your choice. You may wish some light music during a sand ceremony or candle-lighting ceremony. Finally, I usually play a more upbeat song when you have been married and are recessing down the aisle.

For a cocktail hour, I can up the energy level and play more festive music as you transition from ceremony to celebration.

I can also play ambient music during dinner to help keep that exciting feeling going through the night.

I usually perform as a soloist and bring all my own equipment, speakers, etc. so the music can carry throughout the space you've chosen. I make it a point to control the volume level so the music is audible, but doesn't overpower conversation. I also can bring a percussionist for the cocktail hour/reception, which gives a fuller sound and more energy. For a trio, I can bring another soloist for a more interesting, dynamic texture.

Please visit my website at www.migueldemaria.com for videos, sound samples, pictures, and testimonials.

If you would like to book me for your event, email at elegantspanishguitar@gmail.com or call 602-615-8573 today. I can only play one wedding a time, so call soon! Thank you and best wishes to you. Read less

Miguel did a fantastic job at our wedding and was great to communicate with beforehand. I didn't even meet him in person or hear him play until the wedding day, and he was as perfect as I hoped he would be. My only regret is not being able to listen more to him during cocktail hour (I was off doing photos)! Beautiful music and knows what he's doing.

Miguel was a dream to work with. He set the perfect stage for our intimate, chic wedding. We personalized our song list, choosing from his extensive selection, and requested a song of our choice, accompanied by a singer, to walk down the aisle. He was incredibly flexible, walked us through every detail and was a true professional. We would recommend Miguel for any occasion and our guests truly enjoyed his service and talents.

Miguel added such a beautiful touch to our ceremony and cocktail hour! We had so many compliments on the music and the unique aspect of having the spanish quitar instead of something else. Miguel was friendly, well priced and very easy to work with, he even learned 2 new songs at our request! I would highly recommend him!

Miguel provided beautiful music for both our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Obviously he plays Spanish guitar beautifully -- I even purchased one of his CDs months ahead of time to play as background music at the bridal shower, etc. His professionalism was truly appreciated; each phone call/email were a breeze.
In terms of "flexibility," we basically had to tell him that we didn't know if he would be playing inside/outside, what would be available to him or anything else that he may have wanted to know ahead of time because the days leading up to our wedding were full of rain. We were moving on to "plan D" the morning of the wedding. Miguel told us not to worry and he made it work when he got there that day.
Miguel was never a vendor that we had to worry about. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for classy, professional, quality entertainment. Having him play at our wedding was very special to us and we only wish that we had gotten to sit down during cocktail hour to listen to him more ourselves!

We hired Miguel to perform during our rehearsal dinner, and he was absolutely exceptional. He set the mood, and provided the perfect background music. He is a true professional and a wonderful musician. His album is also great, and it is in constant rotation in our home. We definitely recommend Miguel for any occasion!

My husband and I are lucky to have had Miguel be the guitarist for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He was perfect for our Hacienda venue and relatively small group (60 people). His beautiful sound carried well at our site and set the perfect mood. He was kind enough to write an arrangement of the Beatles' "Michelle" for our first dance and even gave me a copy of the sheet music afterward. He has our thanks and recommendation!

Beautiful and elegant music for your perfect day! Miguel de Maria was one of easiest wedding vendors to work with. We chose for him to play solo for our ceremony as well as our cocktail hour and we wouldn't have had it any other way.
