Magical. Simply stated, that is the ceremony that Keith created for our wedding on 11.11.17. Keith’s talent, kindness and professionalism superseded my expectations. Having him apart of our special day was an absolute pleasure. Albeit more untraditional, I loved walking down the aisle to Elvis' "Can't Help Falling in Love" and back up the aisle for the recessional to "In My Life" by John Lennon/Paul McCartney. Both bring back fond memories of my childhood and I was thrilled to weave them into our day. Music feeds the soul and that is just what Keith’s music will do. Smiles were abundant. Hearts were full. Keith, thank you forever, Best, Emily & Adam Hagen
"Dear Keith, I have been meaning to write you to tell you how wonderful all the music was on the evening of the wedding... you sounded INCREDIBLE, and the guitar really made for a really lovely & unique ceremony. I can't tell you how many guests have complimented us since the wedding about how great you were & how much they enjoyed hearing you play during the cocktail hour. I think that was the first time that many of our friends & family had been to a wedding that featured a classical guitarist! The ambiance you created that evening with your playing was wonderful, and Roy and I will certainly take the time to visit the websites you mentioned & sing your praises via written review. Thank you SO much for being part of our big day!"
