  • Austin was a pleasure to work with! He was very responsive and easily accommodated my special requests on short notice! Even with a pandemic and a power outage during our wedding weekend, he called me to ensure everything would be okay! As the bride, I had many things going on the day of the wedding and I knew I didn't have to worry about him! He was there on time and his music was absolutely beautiful! HIGHLY recommend to anyone who wants an elegant touch of live guitar for there wedding!

  • We hired Austin to perform at our intimate wedding on the Lyndhurst Estate earlier this month. In addition to being an extraordinary guitarist with a fantastic repertoire, Austin was such a pleasure to work with and a delightful person. From beginning to end, he was extremely responsive and accomodating (even when we changed up the music selections just a few days before!) He played beautifully throughout the evening and made each moment special for us. We highly recommend Austin for any event!

  • Austin was incredibly flexible and accommodating in helping us have a fantastic (rather) last minute COVID wedding. My wife and I were trying to limit the number of people at the wedding because of covid concerns so a band was out of the question. Austin really set the mood, playing before and during the ceremony, cocktail hour and during dinner. His acoustic melodies were really fantastic. Thanks so much Austin!

  • Music is such an important part of our lives and hiring Austin to play for the ceremony and cocktail hour was the perfect decision! He is a talented musician, but also so easy to work with. He is very accommodating - learned Sea of Love for the processional! Our only regret is not being able to hear more of his playing as we were so busy with guests!!

    Thank you so much Elyse, that means a lot coming from a music teacher!! Such a lovely ceremony and cocktail hour, and you were so easy and great to work with. Mazel Tov!!

  • Besides being musically talented, Austin brings an air of professionalism and kindness to his business. Months prior to our wedding Austin was meticulous in helping us choose the perfect music for our cocktail hour and wedding ceremony. It was overwhelming for us to decide on the music choices, but Austin worked with us (and had an extensive list which helped tremendously) to make our day feel truly special. On the day of the wedding we received throngs of compliments on how beautiful the classical guitar arrangement was, and the passion that resonated from Austin’s skill. With Austin you don’t just get a very talented musician, you get a very sweet and kind person who is intent on giving your wedding the much needed attention it deserves.

    Thank you so much, Kya and Evan! You are such an awesome couple and it was a gorgeous ceremony and cocktail hour, and such a cool venue! Congratulations!!

  • Austin was amazing! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without him there. He made our ceremony and cocktail hour that much more special by personalizing every song for us. He even went out of his way to learn the theme song to Game of Thrones so my wife could make her medieval stride down the aisle! Austin worked with us at every step to make sure everything was the way we wanted. He was very generous to go above and beyond, and I highly recommend his services!

    Thank you so much Mike and Britt! I gotta be honest I was a bit worried about playing the GOT theme but it worked out so well! One of the most special ceremonies I have ever been a part of, and I am not just saying that! You guys rock!

  • Austin was awesome -- I'm so glad we found him to make our backyard wedding that much more special. He was super accommodating. open, and friendly...also obviously very talented! He learned a new Jason Mraz arrangement for our processional at our request. He also went above and beyond to learn and rehearse a song that my sister-in-law sang for the bridal processional. It was a pleasure working with Austin and we would absolutely recommend working with him!!

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Olivia. You and your family were so great and fun to work with! Your planners and DJ were also super helpful too. Who needs another venue with a backyard like that? Absolutely stunning ceremony and cocktail hour. Enjoy married life!!

  • Austin is absolutely amazing. We highly recommend him! He is an incredibly talented musician, and we feel lucky we were able to book him! He was so professional, flexible and even willing to learn a new song on the guitar for our wedding. He took care of all the behind the scenes stuff so we didn't have to worry about any of it, showed up not just on time but early, was all set up, had extra gear, and was just all around outstanding!

    Thank you Luka and Becca! It's not often that I get to witness 2 of my best friends get married to each other, and you sure did make a beautiful bride and groom! It was my absolute pleasure, and you had the perfect day (I knew you would). Thanks for all the kind words, and enjoy married life!!!!!

  • Austin's guitar playing was exactly what we were looking for to accompany our lakeside wedding ceremony. His repertoire fit our tastes perfectly and he was willing to learn any song we requested. He came fully equipped with a great sound system and wireless microphones for our officiant(s). Throughout the whole process, Austin was extremely professional and helpful. We knew after our initial phone call that he had our best interests in mind and he was going to handle the ceremony music with ease. If you're looking for guitar accompaniment, look no further than Austin Charnis.

    Thank you so much Ian and Amy! I’m so glad you were happy with everything. The lake was one of the most gorgeous backdrops I have ever experienced, and it was just such a smooth and beautiful ceremony all around. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you both. Enjoy married life!!
