Pete was great to work with! He was very easy to get a hold of (email and phone). He was timely and performed all of the music to perfection. The acoustic guitar during our ceremony was my favorite part of the day. Pete also played during our cocktail hour and played a variety of music.

if we had to do our wedding over again, we would hire him again!

I heard about Pete through a recommendation from my wedding officiant. I went to his website, and my fiance and I were able to listen to several samples of his guitar music. We liked what we heard and gave Pete a call. He was very prompt in getting back to me when I made my initial inquiry. Pete is very friendly and extremely accomodating. He said that if there was something that we would like him to play and he doesn't know it, he would learn it. As it turned out, there was a song that we wanted played as the recessional piece and he didn't know it, so he learned it. It sounded awesome. Pete is professional, friendly, extremely talented and reasonably priced. We highly recommend Pete! Stephanie & Dave Hallidy

Pete is a wonderful guitarist! He was very quick to respond throughout the planning process and made our song selection very easy! On the day, he was on time and when the weather through us off, he played at least an extra hour for us to help keep our guests entertained. Unfortunately I was too focused to be listening to him play, but I have heard numerous comments about how wonderful he sounded! I would highly recommend Pete!!

Pete provided the most beautiful music for my garden wedding. I could hear it just before walking down the aisle and it instantly relaxed me because it was so peaceful and lovely. The guests said it was the perfect detail to our ceremony that made it extra special. I would highly recommend Pete for his professionalism, talent, and flexibility in tailoring it to our exact desires.

Pete made our day absolute perfection! His music was the 'cherry on top' for our wedding ceremony & cocktail hour. We even requested a special song that he learned for us before the big day, which he played as our first dance music. I could not have asked for a better musician to make our special day even more memorable. Thank you, Pete!!!

Peter was a dream to work with. I gave him minimal direction - just the songs I wanted during the ceremony and the genre of music I'd like played before the ceremony and during the cocktail hour - and he ran with it. I got tons of compliments all night on our guitarist, and I highly recommend him!

We had a very informal beach wedding and Peter was perfectly accomodating and very professional to work with. We had a special song that he learned for us in the matter of a week or so notice. We did not have the service formally scripted and Peter worked very well to improvise the timing of the song choices we made. He added a sweetness to our ceremony! I would highly recommend him.

Peter was great!! He was very easy to work with (we did everything through email) and he really plays beautifully. I am only bummed I was not able to meet him but the music he provided for the wedding was exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you Peter!
