Vicente played for my wedding this past July. He was super easy and friendly to work with when picking out the music and made it a breeze. His music at our ceremony was beautiful! He will give you a list of music to help you pick songs but you don't have to stick to that list. There was one song I really wanted not on the list and he was happy to play it. Highly recommended musician!Sent on 10/20/2017

We booked Vicente as our ceremony musician. I had a change of heart last minute and wanted something more intimate for our ceremony. I first found him on wedding wire and after visiting his website and hearing his music I just knew I had to have him play! His music added such a romantic touch to our special day. There was a terrible storm the day of, we had to move our ceremony inside and he still made it on time, not to mention he had to haul his equipment in the rain! (we're sorry for that by the way but thank you!) He is so sweet and very quick with responses/questions and even learned two new songs for us. He even brought us a soundtrack of his CD as a wedding gift :) We will recommend him to friends and family and hope to use him again when we renew our vows in 30 years! Thank you so much Vicente!Sent on 03/14/2017

The music at our ceremony was far and beyond what we could've asked for. My wife and I were both touched and moved during the ceremony when we heard Vicente playing. Working with him made our wedding so special! He offered a variety of music selections for us to choose from and helped make the music fit our taste. We highly recommend Vicente!Sent on 03/02/2017
