William played the processional and the cocktail hour of our wedding in January of 2014 and he did a fantastic job. He was very helpful figuring out what music fit our personalities. We met with him a few months before the wedding to discuss what songs we would like him to play. At the meeting, he played parts of a few different songs and quickly came up with a list of what he would play based on the things we liked. The big day went off perfectly and it was a relief knowing we had the music covered.

William was awesome!!!! There was not one thing I didn't like about him! He was very easy to talk to about the music set list and flexible in music selection, easy to coordinate his services for our wedding, had great information on his website to make our decisions easier, great great personality, very professional and well-dressed, and simply enjoyable by all of our guests at the wedding. Everyone commented on the wonderful selection William put together and how beautiful his music was played. He even arrived at the wedding early to allow enough time to setup. The ceremony had to be delayed by 30 min unfortunately (shocking at a wedding right lol) and he continued to play beautiful music while everyone was waiting. That really helped put everyone at ease and he did not even get upset or frustrated. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was selecting William!! HUGE thanks and I highly recommend him!!!!

William was very friendly, professional, and flexible to work with. He listened to our requests and delivered perfectly with a fantastic cellist that he recommended (shout out to my man Jeff Basile). Their music was perfect for our ceremony.

I would highly recommend William!

William Wilson was great! We were originally going to play our own music through an ipod, but with all the wedding planning (we were doing much of it ourselves) we opted to hire a classical guitarist about a week before the wedding. I heard William's music online and contacted him via email. We never even spoke before the day of the wedding; however, he made himself available, was always quick to respond with questions and was very professional. His music through the reception was wonderful and was the perfect backdrop for our brunch reception and I've heard a lot of compliments from our guests. He also played a few special songs from our ipod for our entrance and first dance song.

I would recommend William without hesitation. He's a great musician and needs very little direction, which for a busy bride who hired him last minute, was a huge blessing!

Thank you, William, for being a part of our special day!!

William did a wonderful job for our wedding. There were a few things that really meant a lot to my husband and I that William provided.

1) We planned our wedding from the East Coast and William was very communicative with us and even set up a Skype session where we could meet face to face (he with his guitar) and talk over options for our wedding.

2) My husband is Spanish and having William's style was really special for us and his family.

3) William learned a special piece of music to accompany my cousin (a vocalist) during our ceremony. She was in Chicago - and they totally pulled it off having never met in person before!

4) The selection of pieces in William's repertoire is wonderful. He has a great variety of Spanish, classical and pop pieces available.

5) Finally, he played beautifully. The attendees and my husband and I all enjoyed having him as a part of our wedding.

We hired William Wilson to play some Spanish guitar music for our cocktail hour and part of dinner reception,... his playing was exceptional and it gave just the mood we were looking for. We received several comments from our guests stating what a great idea it had been to have a Spanish guitar player. He was really responsive to our emails and music suggestions. Overall, would definitely recommend.

William provided gorgeous music for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! He helped us choose some beautiful classical pieces for the ceremony processional/recessional; he also learned a piece that I requested and performed it with one of my bridesmaids, a soprano. All of our guests enjoyed his lively, virtuosic playing during the cocktail hour as well!

William was extremely accessible and flexible throughout our entire wedding planning process, and I would recommend him without hesitation!!

William did an outstanding job at my son's wedding. We had already heard him play at a recital before we hired him, so we knew that his classical guitar playing was exceptional. What we didn't know in advance was how courteous, responsible and flexible he would be. The bride and groom asked William to arrange a special piece to accompany a vocal performance by one of the bridesmaids, and he willingly obliged. William also did a great job selecting the repertoire for the ceremony and cocktail hour based on the guidelines we gave him. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

William was one of the most memorable parts of our wedding; simply elegant, striking music written by him for me to walk down the isle.

My husband and I share a personal passion for R. Carlos Nakai. I sent a piece of music to William and asked him if he thought he could replicate the song. William is a Spanish and classical guitarist; but he rummaged through his studio, found a flute and began to work on his own piece that resembled what I had sent. There are no words for what he delivered. He sat in a chair near the wedding party, with the bay directly behind him and played the song he had written, while I walked down the isle.

In all sincerity, it may have been my favorite part of the ceremony. I recommend William and his stunning talent a thousand times over…it was perfect.

My husband and I wanted a Spanish guitarist for our wedding and stumbled across William Wilson. I'm so glad we did!! He was everything we wanted for our ceremony and for the background music for our guests during the cocktail hour. William was a consummate professional - playing exactly the right music, obliging my music request changes, and never dominating the scene. He was friendly, affordable and pleasant to work with, understanding the importance of every detail -- he even asked what we wanted him to wear! I was so impressed with him, I've even used him for a few professional events, as well. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone! He gave us one of his cd's, and every time we listen (which is often, because he's that good!), I'm always transported back to our wedding day. I truly couldn't recommend him more!!
