Wedding Ceremony in Connersville, IN on 09/21/2013
"The music was good but her attitude left us feeling a bit stressed on our special day.We informed her that our event was outdoors, we put up a canopy as she requested. I was running taking care of things the bride needed. She called an hour prior to our event and couldnt find the location.The call dropped while i was on the phone with her so we didnt know for sure if we would be having music at the ceremony. We dont feel it was our responsibility to make sure she had a map to find the location.She didnt like where the canopy was located because it was on a bit of a slope so my husband had to move it while dressed in his tux because of her complaints. "
"I was not familiar with area of the wedding, which is 2-hours one-way from my house. My info sheet asks that the client gives directions. Client left that empty. GPS showed as Uncharted Territory so I called client for help. She said her call dropped. I tracked down two different Sheriffs to get me there. So remote & backwoods that it had only an outhouse for a John. When I arrived, they had me seated on a slope, a very bad position to hold & play a "classical" guitar. My husband (thank God he was with me) had to hold up the music stand for the duration in order to keep it from falling over. It fell over once, so he couldn't let go at all for the duration. "
