Some feedbacks:
I didn't even get to say hello to you! You were AMAZING. Thank you for being such a beautiful part of our special day! Jenna & Brian (November 15, 2014, Maidens, VA).

It was lovely music…it filled the space and added depth and meaning to the birthday party. I will be singing your praises for months to all that will hear me. Cathy (August 24, 2013, Silver Springs, MD).

Thank you so much for making our wedding so special. You were a pleasure to work with. Halley & Kevin, June 9, 2012 (Charlottesville, VA).

The music was truly wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Chris and I had a memorable day celebrating with family and friends so thank you for helping to make it a special day for us. Lindsey & Chris (9-10-2011).

Rafael played for our intimate wedding ceremony at a winery in Northern Virginia in February of 2011. He was so helpful with song choices but left everything up to us. He wanted to make our day very special. I asked if he could play a popular song for us and he was able to arrange it so beautifully! He made our wedding absolutely perfect and our guests gave repeated compliments about his performance. I would recommend him over and over again!!! Thank you for a perfect wedding to remember for a lifetime!

Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did for our wedding! The music was perfect. You added such tenderness to our ceremony. Thank you for arriving early and sitting through the heat! We appreciate your talents! Best - Meredith & Jose (7-11-2011).

It was perfect! Your rendition of "Storybook Love" brought tears to my eyes, thank you so much for preparing it for me on such short notice! We really appreciate your time, effort and talent... I can't imagine a more perfect musician for our special day. I am so happy you were available and willing to play for our wedding, your music was absolutely beautiful... Lauren

We retained Rafael to provide accompaniment to our wedding ceremony on a short notice with little direction or guidance. His taste, discretion, and talent served us well. We were provided with an elegant, serene, and ethereal serenade to compliment our celebration. John & Young 12-27-09. Thank you again. Young

Thank you again so much for your lovely music which I feel made the wedding quite special. I also appreciate your flexibility as this was not a highly organized event and your ability to read the situation and add the lovely music was quite special. We so appreciate it. Carolyn

I want to thank you for joining with us on March 18, 2010, to perform at our President's Circle Gala. Your outstanding performance was the perfect touch and contributed so much to the success of the evening. You should know that I received many compliments on the fine entertainment. Your music truly is inspiring and I cannot thank you enough for taking time out of your busy schedule to be with us. We'd love to have you back to perform sometime. Lindsey

On behalf of the Woodbridge Music Club, I would like to thank for your recent performance. Your recital was enjoyed by all present. We are extremely impressed, and hope you will be able to return and perform for us again in the future. In the mean time, we wish you continued success. June

I would strongly recommend Rafael for anyone looking for a talented acoustic guitarist. I received compliments from several people at my wedding about the guitarist. He also has tons of videos of his songs on youtube, which helped a lot when deciding what type of guitarist I wanted. If you're looking for a talented professional who will play beautiful songs for you, then you should consider hiring Rafael.
