My maid of honor found Chris Vasi for me on craigslist. We were doing low-budget music (sound system and iPod) for our wedding music - but I wanted something a bit more personal for our pre-ceremony and ceremony music. I had in mind a romantic acoustic guitar. Chris is exactly what I wanted.Sent on 09/25/2012
He plays beautifully. He suggested some songs (I used The Beatles - Blackbird for the bridal party procession)...and he laughed but didn't seem fazed when I asked him for a really obscure song for my entrance. He learned it and it was beautiful as I walked in. I gave him free reign on the pre-ceremony music, but from what I understand from everyone, he did that well, also.
I definitely recommend contacting him if you're looking for a guitarist for your event.
