“Thank you guys so much for arriving promptly and for doing such a
great job this past saturday! We got many compliments on the music
for the ceremony and cocktail hour! Thanks again so much for your hard
"For our may 14, 2011 wedding, my wife and i sought vendors who would compliment our particular style. we wanted to avoid a traditional “stuffy” string trio for the wedding ceremony, and Ryan Owen Music did a great job working WITH us to develop music that was unique, appropriate and interesting. Ryan sent us various samples of music to listen to that he had used in previous weddings, but my fiance suggested that we do something different. we suggested a Yann Tiersen song from the movie Amelie, and Ryan let us listen to an electronic sample arrangement to get feel for how it would sound from a string trio. Ryan was more than willing to arrange whole new pieces for our particular wedding in addition to the vast catalog that he already advertises on his website. we communicated primarily via email since we do no longer live in the los A area, and he was always prompt and professional in his responses. we can definitely recommend Ryan owen
music for a wedding ceremony and particularly so if utilizing nontraditional music pieces."

We are so thankful to have found Ryan to perform at our ceremony and cocktail hour at Bel-Air Bay Club! Ryan played solo acoustic guitar for our ceremony and was so accommodating! He gave helpful advice when we asked for it and was also so accommodating when we wanted a specific arrangement of a song. He was such a pleasure to work with throughout the wedding process and we recommend him with tremendous enthusiasm! We also had his alt trio play during our cocktail hour and they were amazing!! The sound was so elegant, rich, and wonderfully upbeat -- setting the perfect mood before the reception. Thank you, Ryan!!

Ryan performed solo acoustic guitar for our ceremony and to put it simply -- things with Ryan were just so easy during a time when you just need them to be. He is incredibly quick with responses, his prices are so reasonable, and his music was beautiful and just what I wanted for a small garden wedding. He has other pieces (duo, trio, quartet) but I decided to go solo and I'm glad I did. I love that he will learn songs for your occasion, which he did for ours. Highly recommend.
