About Tyler Varnell - Saxophone Ceremony & Reception

"The best vendor we hired for our wedding!"

"My guests and my husband were blown away!"

"So many people talked about how awesome the sax player was!"

"Guests were shedding a tear when Tyler played Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud as I walked down the aisle"

"One memory I will forever hold in my heart is walking down the aisle with my father to Tyler playing Here Comes The Bride. Almost losing my father the year before made that walk that much more special."

"An invaluable, perfect moment with my grandpa that I will never forget. I am so grateful."

"From the planning to the big day, Tyler exceeded all of our expectations. He made sure my vision was carried out and offered his professional input that really brought everything together. Our wedding was so special because of Tyler's beautiful music!"

"I even had a guest book him to play at her wedding the following month!"

    Tyler was incredible! He was, hands down, my favorite part of our ceremony! The guests raved about him. He was professional, easy to communicate with, and so talented. He’s a brilliant musician and a great human being!

    I’ve been to multiple weddings that Tyler has played for. He is an incredible musician and brings such an energy and enthusiasm to every gig he plays. He played our first dance song which was absolutely perfect and the other wedding where we saw him perform was one of the most fun we’ve been to. Having live saxophone just elevated the party to the next level.
