I almost don't know what to say, I feel so fortunate that we were able to work with Bruce for our wedding. I entered into the search for a musician not really knowing what I wanted, but upon visiting his website and listening to a recording of "The Gift of Love," I had a complete vision of what I hoped our beach ceremony would be like. It definitely included flute and classical guitar!
When we met Bruce, he had such an easy way about him, it was a pleasure to just sit and chat with him, and once he began playing for us, the depth and breadth of his musical talent and knowledge were very clear. He made great suggestions and was also willing to explore some more unusual choices with us.
It was through Bruce's suggestion that we received one of our most wedding gifts- an original composition by the best man which Bruce and his accompanying guitarist (I apologize I cannot recall his name) played during the ceremony. It was such a special moment!
After the ceremony, Bruce switched to saxophone and provided some great cocktail hour entertainment that was classy and fun. Another musician friend in attendance knew Bruce's guitarist, having played with him, and complemented us on the great musicians we had chosen; I already thought he was great, and the experts agree! Thank you Bruce, for providing the beautiful soundtrack to our day!
Bruce was fantastic. He was happy to meet us the day before to map out the wedding music and even brought his flute so we could hear samples! He is an amazing musician and I highly recommend him and trust his taste of wedding music!
We hired Bruce to provide music for our wedding ceremony, and he was simply amazing to work with!
We chose a duo--a flutist (Bruce plays the flute himself) and a cellist. Both Bruce and the cellist proved to be remarkably skilled musicians.
We also had a very specific and eclectic list of songs we wanted them to play before, during and after the ceremony, including old and new pop songs and some classical pieces, and a couple of unusual song choices for the processional and the recessional. I was able to provide Bruce with chord charts in a couple of cases, and Bruce found or made charts for the rest. Bruce was completely on board and enthusiastic about the direction we wanted to go with the music, and he was also quite creative in his ordering of musical selections for maximum dramatic effect.
The result was fresh and original, and made our wedding ceremony moving and memorable.
