Ryan was very easy to talk to prior to our wedding, willing to learn a special song for our first dance, etc. However, Ryan got lost on his way to our reception and was very late getting started. Our reception had already begun when he was able to make it, he played an hour and 45 minutes non-stop till our reception was over(scheduled for 3.5 hours). He expected full pay (which he did not receive) but, he didn't realize how much it affected everything else in our receptions timing. We had lots of folks say they liked him but could tell he struggled talking to our group, I guess from feeling badly about being late. Got a call on our way to honeymoon re: money- really!

Ryan was absolutely FANTASTIC!!! He really set the perfect mood for our garden wedding at the Allandale Mansion. All of our guest raved about his technique and skills. I was worried about having only one guitarist, but he is like have 3 musicians in one!!!! The ceremony music was beautiful and the reception was perfectly elegant and so so so much FUN!!!! I highly recommend Ryan Ward to anyone!!!!! He took the time to learn songs I special requested even 1 week prior to the event. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without him! If he is ever within a drivable distance, we will certainly make a trip to see him perform! Thank you Ryan!!!!! :0)

It is only a matter of time before Ryan's talents are appreciated at a grand scale. We were privileged to have play our afternoon reception. Everyone was amazed at his talents. Thanks so much Ryan! You are professional, an easy-going, friendly soul to work with. You made us feel like we've known you for a long time, and we appreciate that. We highly recommend Ryan as his guitar and singing skills will surely entertain! Cheers! C&C
