The duo of guitar and cello sent to our wedding by Penguin Music did a wonderful job! They were very professional and played superbly. I had many positive comments from our guests regarding their music. And Steven was a delight to work with-very prompt and helpful in aiding us choose music for the wedding ceremony. I would recommend Penguin Music without reservation.

Loved Penquin music! We had a cello and guitar for our ceremony and it was amazing. They were great to work with and responsive and helpful. The music on the day was better than I could have imagined. We'll dressed performers who were also very nice and willing to move around for photos after the ceremony. Extremely happy!

We hired Penguin for our wedding day ceremony music. They played beautifully. They learned the 2 new songs we had selected that were very meaningful to us. They were professional and responded to all emails in a timely manner. I would 100% recommend them to anyone getting married!

I could go on for pages about how wonderful Penguin Wedding Music was to work with, but I'll stick to the highlights:

- Their cello/ guitar combination was beautiful, and guests were raving about them to us the entire evening.

- They played their own assortment of music while guests were being seated, then played three songs that they had learned specifically for us during the ceremony - "Lovers in Japan" and "Reign of Love" by Coldplay and "You Make My Dreams Come True" by Hall and Oats. All of it was fantastic, but their renditions of the songs we requested were especially impressive.

- They were very professional and easy to reach in the months of planning leading up to the wedding, and were completely self-sufficient during the wedding itself. No hand holding or directions of any kind were required, which was really appreciated.

Overall, I'd recommend Penguin Music to any family or friend without any hesitation. They helped make our special day that much better, and we can't imagine the ceremony without the beautiful soundtrack they provided.

Penguin music were GREAT for our wedding, we initially planned only to hire a ceremony musician but after doing our research we decided to also have the guys play our outdoor cocktail hour. The ceremony went off beautifully (my wife was ecstatic about their rendition Spoon's "I summon you" which is what we asked them to play for the recessional) and then they provided wonderful music for the cocktail hour. Overall they were a huge hit.

We could have not been more pleased with the musicianship and professionalism of the duo that provided the music for Grace and Adam's ceremony at Leamings Run Gardens in Cape May, NJ. Everyone who attended commented very positively on the quality of the music. These guys were so fun and flexible. We appreciated them VERY much!!

Penguin Music was fantastic to work with. I hired them for a client of mine and the bride, groom, and their families were all so happy with how wonderful the ceremony & cocktail music sounded. On top of that, as an event planner, it's always so great to work with vendors who are not only great at what they do but are responsive and accommodating- Penguin Music definitely fits in that category. They were a pleasure to work with and would certainly recommend them again.

Penguin music provided an elegant and beautiful musical backdrop for our wedding ceremony. We worked with Steven to arrange the details leading up to the wedding, and his level of professionalism surpassed what I could have hoped for. Steven made planning simple, easy and fun -- he was a bright spot in the midst of the wedding planning chaos.

We knew we wanted a cello and guitar to set the mood for our guests -- and we found the right talent!

What we heard and shared was beautiful, deep, resonating, emotional -- our duo was talented, caring, involved and engaged with what they set out to do. We couldn't be more appreciative - and we highly recommend this team to you if you have high expectations and want your guests to experience the beauty and grace that a heart felt musical performance can render.

(Note: my name is Jordan and I am writing this review under my wife Emily's account): My wife and I were married on April 20, 2013, and Penguin Music (Chris and Steven) played our ceremony. We couldn't possibly be happier with what they provided: excellent music, very quick responses to emails, and a willingness to work with us to make sure that the song that my wife walked down the aisle to -- "The Story" by Brandi Carlisle (which was something that Penguin learned specifically for us!) -- was perfect. On the day of our wedding, the ceremony started a little late on account of a flower girl bathroom emergency, and Steven/Chris weren't fazed in the slightest, adjusting quickly on the fly to make sure that the music kept coming and guests didn't start shifting in their seats.

In short, we are so thrilled that we found Penguin Music's website, and highly highly HIGHLY recommend them to anyone that wants classy but fun cello/guitar music at their wedding. Thanks to them both!
