Made for a magical wedding!
FarAway. When planning our wedding, my wife and I wanted a sound that had a lot of heart and warmth. We knew we wouldn’t be able to get that from a deejay so we started looking for a coffeehouse acoustic sound which led us to Brian and Sara. They were extremely personable, responsive and went above and beyond for us. When we told them we wanted to do a medley that hadn’t been done before for our first dance and a song that wasn’t on their playlist for our last dance, they were able to accommodate us. In addition to that, they provided helpful suggestions that made the wedding reception move a lot more smoothly.Sent on 04/26/2019
On the day of, we were blown away by how beautiful the music was. It was the perfect volume so the guests weren’t forced to yell at each other to have a conversation. Our wedding was already wonderful buy FarAway was able to raise it to another level. We cannot recommend highly enough.

Must book this OUTSTANDING musical couple!
Sara and Brian are amazing! They communicated with us every step of the way. Even when I ran into some family problems and was MIA for the two weeks leading up to my wedding they were so supportive and stayed on top of things. The weather was questionable for my wedding ceremony and it was a last minute decision to stay outside and they rocked it! My guests had nothing but outstanding things to say about them. If they weren't our friends we would have had them do the reception as well but I wanted to hang with them.Sent on 12/04/2018
