    Dear Tony, Just wanted to say a quick thank you for the beautiful music at my wedding ceremony. My husband and I received so many compliments and it really made the ceremony so much more special. I really can’t thank you guys enough. Also, the song you played for us to walk out to – Bittersweet Symphony – brought tears to my eyes, it was so awesome. If you ever do a recording of it, I would love to purchase a copy. If I can ever serve as a reference for you, please let me know. Thanks again, Amy
