    Beautiful ceremony

    Brian was a pleasure to work with on our ceremony music! Not only is he a true talented professional, he made the process of planning our ceremony music so easy and made great suggestions. We wanted a cello duo with a piano and he made it happen with Chris Ott, who was also great! He was responsive to all my questions and I was so excited he would do a song not on his list, Halo by Beyonce, for my entrance. When I was preparing to walk down the aisle, hearing the beautiful music outside by the lake at the Aurora Inn, felt magical. Especially when my song came on, the music set the tone and made the atmosphere so dreamy and romantic, just what I wanted! If you are considering added musicians to your wedding, you won't regret it, especially with Brian! My only regret is not hiring him for the cocktail hour too. Thank you Brian!!

    Amazing!!!!

    Working with Brian was incredible from start to finish. He helped us organize our ceremony and recommended the most beautiful music to go along with it. He took the time to learn a specific song I requested for when I walk down the aisle. The music set the tone for our wedding and made the ceremony everything we dreamed it would be. Thank you for everything Brian!!!
