Ryan is absolutely amazing!Sent on 10/22/2017
They say your wedding day will fly by and things may become a blur. One thing that stands out from the day/night is Ryan singing and playing the guitar- doing what he does best! When I close my eyes I can picture it- From hearing him play while my best girls walked down the aisle before me, to the special moment with my Dad walking me down the aisle, to after the ceremony, during pictures, Ryan doing his thing, I waved a big "Hi!!" And in between songs, ran over to give him a hug. To Ryan playing during dinner, "Baby I love Your Way" it all brings me back to our special day!
My husband and I decided to do a destination wedding- we live in Northern Virginia, and the wedding was in La Jolla. Thank goodness for Google, because that is where I came across Ryan. After researching him, watching YouTube videos, I reached out to Ryan for more information. From start to finish, Ryan was always very polite, pleasant and patient when listening to our needs. He is a very talented musician and extremely knowledgeable about the wedding industry. He offered advice about the music options we had for our wedding, which really helped. Ryan played live music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and part of the reception. He DJd for the remainder of the evening and everyone just loved everything about him!!!
I highly recommend Ryan, he really completed our night and made everything come together. He has such a good vibe and we love hearing him play! Thank you so much Ryan, it was a pleasure meeting you and having you play for our wedding. Best of luck to you in the future, I see big things happening for you!!

Exceptional - you won't regret booking SoCal Wedding music
We came over from the UK for a beach wedding on October 25th 2018 at the Bahia in San Diego. We researched a lot about who we wanted to play at our wedding as we love music and this was very important to us. When we came across SoCal Wedding music/ Ryan we knew he would be perfect for our day and we were totally right. As we were in the UK we communicated a lot over the phone and email, Ryan was very approachable and friendly and made the whole experience very easy and enjoyable.
Ryan is talented beyond words, he has the most beautiful voice and his guitar playing is exceptional. Ryan is very professional and helped us organise the day as we did not have a wedding coordinator, he guided us with song choices and was open to learning new songs to play (even though he has a huge selection of songs). Ryan sang for the guests before the ceremony, played whilst I walked down the aisle, sang and played during a 2 hour cocktail party and then DJ’d for the rest of the night. He was a lot of fun, all our guests commented on how much they loved him. To anyone reading this review, you will not regret booking Ryan Hiller/ SoCal wedding music
Thank you so much Ryan, we hope to meet and work with you again! Rhiannon and Adam x

So helpful and talented!!
Ryan was the most helpful and personable musician. Not only did he perform amazing live music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner - he also was an amazing DJ for our reception! Through the entire process Ryan was very organized and so helpful with recommendations for song choices, and made my planning process so much easier! He was always an email or call away with any question I had. The most compliments I got during our reception was how great our music was, and I even had engaged friends ask for his name and said they were gonna steal him from us! Do yourself a favor and go see him perform live and meet him in person, and prepare to be impressed! Thank you Ryan, you made our wedding a breeze! We will be stopping by one of your live shows again soon for sure!
Okay, this is serious! Ryan Hiller, with SoCal Wedding Music is amazing! Not your typical run of the mill version of amazing but the, wait, stop the press, you will be blown away, amazing. As a wedding planner I work with tons of DJs and musicians and Ryan is something special. How so much talent can be wrapped into one person is beyond me, but we absolutely love working with him. It takes a special kind of person to be a wedding DJ, because you have to be able to read the crowd, make changes at the client's whim, and leave your ego out. Ryan is fantastic at this, as well as building rapport clients. In addition, he is phenomenal musician! He is a beautiful singer/songwriter, but can also wonderfully cover almost any song. With hundreds of songs already in his repertoire,he is happy to learn new ones for you as an addition to your package. You can check out his skills online or at a live show before you book; which is a great bonus. If you are looking for a musician, a wedding DJ, or both; You can stop looking, you have found the one and only Ryan Hiller and SoCal Wedding Music!!
SoCal Wedding Music puts on great tunes every time! We appreciate working with you to help make our weddings fantastic.
