    Perfect ceremony music

    We decided fairly late in the game that we wanted acoustic guitar for our ceremony. We contacted Eily at Sweetwater Strings, and she was very nice and set us up with Alex, one of their guitarists. Their booking process was easy, and their website had a really handy extensive list of song suggestions. The music turned out lovely!
