Stan and I were delighted to work with Matt Kaplan for our wedding ceremony!
Matt Kaplan had come highly recommended from a friend who is an expert in classical music and so I went in with full confidence that we had found a musician who would help us. From my very first phone call with Matt I found him to be attentive to our thoughts and ideas and what we were hoping for our wedding ceremony to be like. He had given us some great feedback from his own professional experience performing previously at other weddings and presented us with a variety of song samples. Over the weeks ahead we brainstormed how it could go. At the last minute we had a friend offer to sing three different songs and Matt was so flexible in making this happen. He made sure we had transitional music for each part and really helped us make this a very beautiful occasion.
His talent in guitar playing is evident, and so are his people skills! It takes a certain kind of social flair to be able to connect with a group efficiently. Matt helped us set the stage for an elegant, relaxed and fun wedding!
We thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day and not only enjoyed working with you but now also consider you a friend. ☺

Matt was an exceptional performer for our wedding ceremony. We asked him to arrange for guitar two relatively obscure songs that were meaningful to us, and his results were beautifully tasteful and created a delicately ethereal atmosphere that blended with the sounds of nature to crystalize that most auspicious milestone of our lives. Thanks Matt!

Matt played during our wedding ceremony & he did an absolutely fantastic job! Leading up to the wedding, he was responsive & asked detailed questions to make sure that everything would go smoothly on the big day. He really went above and beyond; we asked for specific songs to be played & he learned them prior to the wedding just for us! With all of the vendors you need to coordinate with for your wedding, it is a relief to work with someone as professional & friendly as Matt. I would highly recommend him!

Matt performed for my wedding in March 2023, and we couldn’t have been happier. He did the music for the ceremony and background music during the cocktail hour and dinner. He was very communicative during the planning process and was very willing to meet with us while we were interviewing musicians to discuss repertoire and answer our many questions. Ultimately, we chose the pieces for the ceremony and gave Matt carte blanche for the background music and he was spot on selecting pieces that fit the vibe of our party. Matt was very accommodating and made planning as easy as possible for us; he brought all his own equipment, all we needed to provide for him was a chair and an outlet for him to plug into. He is a very talented musician, not just in the quality of his performance, but also in his ability to improvise as our event progressed. We had several guests telling us afterwards how much they enjoyed the music and one who made a song request and was thrilled that Matt did it. If I could give Matt more than five stars I would, I highly recommend him!
