    Jim Perona Guitarist

    I was so excited to get Jim as our guitarist. I wanted non-traditional music and he played exactly what I wanted. I did not get to hear all the music since I was hidden away and had to take photos when the ceremony ended. I did hear the song I choose for my entrance, 'Everlong', and it was beautiful. I also heard a song I asked Jim to arrange for the recessional, 'Longer' by Dan Fogelberg (one of my favorite singers). It was beautiful.

    Amazing guitarist

    Jim is a truly talented musician and we were so lucky to have him perform at our wedding. He worked with us to coordinate song choices that highlighted our personalities and helped establish the right mood and ambiance for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Jim accommodated our unique requests and did an outstanding job. His performance during our processional was very powerful and moving. The guests were struck by the atmosphere he created. He is a gifted musician that can emulate many styles. We received so many compliments from our guests on his performance and we feel very fortunate to have found him. Thanks very much, jim!
