"My new husband and I got married last month in a little chapel, and hadn't even considered ceremony music until about 30 days before the wedding (oops!). We found Brian by doing a quick internet search, and we're SO HAPPY that we did! Brian responded immediately to my email, told me that he was available for our wedding day, and had us over to his house to meet and even played a bunch of songs for us. I only had a couple of songs in mind for the ceremony, and Brian was so helpful with giving us more ideas. The music Brian played at the ceremony was BEAUTIFUL!! (Jesu..., La Vie en Rose, Canon in D, Can't Help Falling in Love, Cheek to Cheek, and a mix of whatever he wanted - as instructed by us - for the prelude and postlude). I haven't seen the professional video yet, but I've heard some friends' cell phone videos and it was beautiful! (Of course I can't actually remember anything from when I started walking down the aisle!). Our friends and family loved the guitar!! Brian showed up early to start playing while the guests arrived, and stayed until all of the guests had left. He was super professional, friendly, pleasant, talented, and affordable! We would recommend Brian to anyone looking for guitar ceremony music!" - Meghan V.

"Brian was the PERFECT fit to our unique October wedding! From the moment I spoke with him about our ideas for our big day there was no question Brian was 'the one' to make it amazing. Without hesitation, he learned to play our favorite songs and played them with ease as
though he had been playing them for years. Our guests were singing along and having a blast as though there was a full band! We can't thank him enough for making our intimate celebration so wonderful. He's the BEST!" - Desarae O.

"Brian is amazing. All of our guests loved him, he is wonderfully talented. He was so easy to work with, especially since we were planning from NJ...he was always so quick to respond to any questions. We loved him, he has a very eclectic mix of music available and even learned a few new songs per our request. Our first dance was so beautifully played and sung by Brian, we will remember it always as our favorite part of our wedding day." - Lauren P.

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Brian for my best friend's wedding ceremony in Camden, Maine. She asked me to sing during the ceremony, so I needed to find someone in the area who could accompany me as well as perform music for the whole program. I came across Brian's website and was impressed with his repertoire and saw he'd received great reviews for previous events he'd performed at. He was extremely flexible, making time for a rehearsal with me before the wedding, and was great to work with. His rates were also very fair, and most importantly, he sounded wonderful and was the perfect addition to a beautiful, smallish outdoor ceremony. I would highly recommend working with him if you need a classical, jazz or contemporary guitarist at your event." - Maura Q.

"Brian was extremely helpful, professional, and a pleasure to work with to create our wedding ceremony. He has a long list of great songs and helped us select the perfect list of songs to make our ceremony exactly what we had in mind. His guitar playing was excellent, our guests we're all raving about how beautiful our ceremony was and Brian was an essential piece of that." - Tim O.

"Brian did a great job and we had so many positive reviews about our cocktail hour! So glad he could be part of our day and would recommend him to anyone looking for a talented musician that can entertain a large group (we had close to 200 guests)! Thanks, Brian!” - Laura A.

"Brian was wonderful to work with for our wedding. He came highly recommended by our wedding venue Inn by the Sea. We had a specific song that we wanted played for our ceremony and he was able to learn it no problem! He was also very easy to work with over email (something I needed since I was so busy). His price was also very reasonable. I would recommend him for anyone who wants a guitar player for their wedding in the future!" - Kyle P.

"Brian was incredibly professional and we got so many compliments on his music after the ceremony. He learned an acoustic version of our favorite song for us to walk down the aisle to after we were married. We booked about a month prior to the wedding and he was still willing to learn the song. I hear he did a great job. (I was a little distracted.) We wholeheartedly recommend hiring Brian for your wedding.” - Megan S.

"Everything was top notch with Brian for our wedding. Brian was friendly, flexible, and talented. We chose songs off his playlist and he also learned a special song that my bride requested. He really impressed by being able to adapt on the fly (without anyone noticing) when a (literally) last second snafu changed my bride's entrance. I would highly recommend Brian for any event. Worth every penny." - Russell L.

"Brian was a great choice for our wedding ceremony and reception. I planned a wedding in Portland, Maine from Charlotte, NC..all online and with trust and faith! Brian was very responsive to all my emails, very prompt the day of the wedding, and very professional overall. He is very talented and played the classical guitar beautifully. I definitely recommend Brian for any event looking for a simple, elegant touch!" - Joni T.

"Brian did an amazing job with the music. Our wedding ceremony was outside and the weather decided not to cooperate. The venue was covered but there was still rain and wind. Brian did a great job playing through that! I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for a wedding musician!” - Katie C.

"Brian played for our wedding ceremony and was great! He was easy to work with, always prompt in replying to my emails and a very talented musician. His musical repetoire was very diverse and he played both classical and modern songs. I would highly recommend Brian to play at your event!!" - Chrissy E. 

"In 2007 Brian played classical guitar for my wedding. As the primary music provider during the ceremony, he was extremely flexible with our rustic venue. His music selections were spot on and his performance provided a wonderful accompaniment to one of the grandest days of my life. I recommend him highly." - Melanie A.

"Brian did an amazing job playing the guitar during our wedding ceremony. We received so many compliments on the music. He's a fantastic guitar player. We picked songs that weren't on his listed repertoire and he had no problem playing them. He was extremely professional, accommodating, and very friendly. We planned our wedding long distance and he was always quick to respond to my emails and he made all the planning very easy and enjoyable. I would highly recommend him! He was great to work with and his playing really is exceptional!" - Kristine B.

"Brian was AMAZING!! He went the extra mile to make sure that everything was exactly how we wanted it to be. He is really talent! I would recommend that you hire him for any event. He is a pure pleasure to work with. Thank you so much for all that you did! You made our special day even more special!" - Liz B.

"Brian was excellent to work with and sounded great during our wedding ceremony. We had a couple of song requests and Brian was very willing to learn them and perform them. He was always very responsive and friendly. We were very pleased with his performance and would fully recommend him!" - Michael E.

"Brian played acoustic guitar for our 8/23/14 outdoor ceremony. We and our guests were extremely happy with the quality of the music, and I found Brian very easy to work with during the set up. He was very helpful in choosing songs and was willing to include all of our off-list requests. I booked Brian about 8 months beforehand and had no issues getting in touch when we got closer to the date, he was very responsive via phone and e-mail and even made the first contact to see what kind of music I was planning on. I'd recommend him to anyone." - Kara M.
