"Thank you for helping to give us the most perfect wedding ceremony we could have asked for. We knew we wanted "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" playing as we walked down the aisle, and to have you there playing ukulele was better than anything we could have imagined."
"It was perfect! We hope that our paths will cross again someday, but until then we wish you all the best. Carrie and Brian"
"It was awesome to have you and your band play our ceremony in Cape May, NJ. The songs were fantastic and your talent priceless! Thank You! Marisa and Aric"
"Dave and I are so grateful for your time and energy that embodied itself in music that set the tone for the ceremony and cocktail hour! It was as if you took our thoughts and made them come to life. What a fantastic gift you gave us--we felt for some time that we were in Hawaii. I think that the flower girl had a crush on you : ) and my aunt said that when you played 'Tiny Bubbles', it was as if she were on her honeymoon in Hawaii all over again. Mahalo and Aloha, Nadia and Dave."
"Thank you for being a part of our special day. The music was a huge hit with our guests and we're very grateful that you made the trip up from NYC to perform. Wishing you the best, Kelly and Nick"
"Thank you for making Diana and Donny's wedding so memorable! You have a wonderful talent. We wish you continued success!" Parents of the bride.
