Everyone commented that the music was wonderful and created a fabulous ambiance; my only regret is that being the bride, I was hidden away and unable to hear the prelude, the wedding party processional, or the music Hideki played during cocktail hour.

Hideki did a great job. I wish that I had more time during the event to listen to his music. Fortunately, I've purchased his CD. It is marvelous.
