    Now that the last of our-of-town guests has left for home, my newly minted husband and I are able to sit down and take a few minutes to say a quick "THANK YOU!" for everything Kristian has done for us. Kristian was an absolute pleasure to work with. The music at the reception was fantastic!! Our guests raved about the music selection and we loved how bodies were moving in their seats, feet were tapping and some guests even got up to dance! Thank you so much for that.

    Again, thanks so much Kristian and to the rest of the band for making our big day sound so special.
