I highly recommend Stacy Arnold to anyone planning a wedding or just wanting a classical guitarist for an event. From the moment I booked him for our wedding, he was responsive, a breeze to work with, and went above and beyond to be accommodating. He has many selections on his playlist which we incorporated into our ceremony. When I asked him to play a song for the wedding processional that was not on the playlist, he took the time to learn the material and put together a beautiful arrangement. Stacy is very professional, the friendliest guy you will ever work with, and calms the anxiety of any bride-to-be. I could not have made a better choice!!!!

We chose to hire Stacy Arnold for our wedding ceremony and reception, and it was an excellent decision. He was very professional and accommodating on the business aspects and his musical talent is exceptional. With only three weeks to the ceremony, he learned a special request for us, even though he was given the option to play another piece he was more familiar with. I truly appreciated his effort, and received many compliments on his behalf. I would highly recommend him to any bride seeking an elegant choice for a ceremony musician. Thanks again, Stacy!
