Steve played guitar for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and was more than accommodating, he even learned a new song for our ceremony!
He was prompt with all correspondence leading up to the big day and most importantly his guitar playing was divine! I highly recommend Steve for any event! -Carolyn O, Woodbury,
From the beginning, Steve was always very responsive to my e-mails (which is very important to a stressed out bride in the midst of wedding planning!), and he was quick to offer suggestions when I wasn't sure which direction to take my ceremony music. As for the day of the wedding, I can say that Steve did a FANTASTIC job playing the processionals and recessionals during the ceremony, and he kept our guests thoroughly entertained at the cocktail hour. He was great to work with, and I would definitely recommend adding Steve to your wedding dream team! -Jessica S, Brooklyn, NY
We hired Steven to play at our wedding ceremony in May 2014. He was fantastic. He was not only on time, but he made things very easy for us by getting his sound system needs taken care of ahead of time. In fact, by the time I noticed Steven had arrived, he was sitting in his chair all set up and ready to go! Steven played every song we asked for, and he played all of them exceptionally. In my opinion, he sounds better in "real life" than the samples on his website. Multiple guests at our wedding commented to me personally about how great Steven's performance was and how well he played all of the songs. I could not recommend Steven highly enough; if you're looking for a classical guitarist to make that special day even more special, he's your man. He made things very easy for us, and, more importantly, made our wedding day that much more special. What more could you ask for? Kevin S. Southington, CT.

I was so calm all day until the ceremony, and the second Steve started to play I burst into tears. He made my ceremony exactly the way I always pictured it, and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. -Laurin H, Springfield, MA
Steve was the big surprise in our wedding ceremony. He made us cry while he performed the songs we selected. My guests enjoyed a lot and still are talking about our ceremony. Steve made it unforgettable to our guest and to the hotel crew. Can't wait till our first year anniversary Steve!!! -Angel P, Westbrook, CT
Steve did a wonderful job for our wedding ceremony. The music sounded beautiful and was the perfect volume to compliment the ceremony, but not overpower it. There was some correspondence prior to regarding our song preferences and his requirements, but on the day of Steve was self-guided. I would recommend him to anyone. -Lauren R, Manchester, CT
Steven exceeded our expectations. He played at our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception. Many of guests were blown away by his talents. During the
planning process, Steven was very fast in responding to my emails, and accommodated all of our special requests. He would be a welcomed addition to any event. He was an integral part of our day.

Steve did a phenomenal job at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We were so happy that we hired someone with such refined guitar skills, and he was great to work with before the wedding--he knew what songs to recommend to fit our vision. He's a true professional that did not disappoint. -Rosanna P, Ridgefield, CT
I can't say enough good things about Steven. He was very professional and accommodating. My wife and I wanted a mix of song selections that included
traditional standards as well as not-so-traditional. A tricky request ... but Steven delivered without hesitation! We had our Ave Maria AND our Nirvana (or I should say MY Nirvana). I've never
heard All Apologies played at a wedding, but after Steven's rendition it should be standard fair. I would recommend Steven to anyone. -Jeff L, Newtown, CT
Steve was a pleasure to work with! He is accommodating, professional, and very talented. I had compliments from guests of all ages that enjoyed his performance during my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Right after the ceremony ended the power went out and remained out for about an hour, thankfully it was outside. Even with that he remained professional and continued playing with no amplifier without missing a beat. Because of that many guests did not realize what had even happened. I would recommend Steven to anyone!! -Chantel C, Woodstock, CT
I hired Steve for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. I had not met him before and just went off of the info on his website. He showed up early, paid attention to the flow and details of the event, and performed beyond my expectations! My family was so impressed with his talent and professionalism, and several complimented him during and after the set. Looking back I truly feel like it was the highlight of the evening. I would certainly use him again for future events. -Alison M, South Windsor, CT
Steven was wonderful! We used him for our Vineyard wedding for ceremony and cocktail hour. In the planning process he always responded quickly to my emails and provided a contract and questionnaire which was very helpful. The day of he was professional and on time! The music was beautifully played and added a special touch to our day. All of our guests loved it!! Thank you again, would highly recommend!!!! -Melissa M, Aquebogue, NY
Steven was absolutely fantastic! The music for the wedding ceremony was perfect and his cocktail hour tunes had everyone in great spirits. I would recommend him to anyone with the highest regard. -Chris L, Stamford, CT
