  • We were so happy with Austin! He played guitar during our pre-ceremony/ceremony. I originally wanted him to play during the wedding and the cocktail hour, but I realized there was a conflict between the venue and outside music vendors. His selection of music was excellent. He was very accommodating...the bridesmaids had some makeup issues which caused the wedding to start late, but Austin took care of us. He put everyone at ease with his great musicianship. He was a great addition to our special day.

  • We got married in May at West Hills Country Club. Austin was fantastic! He played our ceremony and cocktail hour. We had some special requests for our ceremony - my Husband and I are big Zac Brown fans and we asked him to play an acoustic version of "Free" for the bridal party to walk down the aisle and he learned it and played it perfectly. He added a magical touch to our ceremony and was also a pleasure to work with. We couldn't be happier!

  • When planning our wedding we knew we wanted to create a very intimate feel even though we had 200 plus guests that would be attending....that is where Austin came in. We booked him to play guitar during our ceremony and cocktail hour and it was that special touch that we felt would be missing if we didn't have him. He was extremely responsive and so pleasant to deal with leading up to our wedding day. He had an amazing list of songs to choose from and told us he would even learn some new ones if we had any special requests. Although my husband and I didn't fully get to experience him during cocktail hour our guests kept coming up and telling us how talented he was. Thank you so much Austin, you made our wedding day so special!

  • My husband and I got married on September 30 at Mohonk Mountain, and Austin played the guitar during our ceremony and cocktail hour - and we have to say, he was amazing! He was a pleasure to work with, responded very quickly to all of our emails, and best of all of our guests commented on how great he played. We picked all of the songs we wanted him to play, and then we told him to just fill in with whatever songs he'd like. And he did a great job doing so ! We are so happy we chose Austin to play at our wedding and we recommend him to everyone. He did such a wonderful job that I'd actually like to get my husband guitar lessons from him. He made our wedding day that much more special. Thank you Austin!

    Thank you Rosemary!! I'm flattered by your kind words and thrilled that you were all happy with the music. Let's get those lessons going :)

  • Austin Charnis played the music for our wedding ceremony this past weekend, and he was fantastic! He is a very talented musician, but more important than that, he was just a pleasure to work with. He is true professional and made the whole process easy for me and my wife by communicating directly with the venue and the staff. And then of course, the music was perfect. For our recessional, my wife specifically asked Austin to learn a song that wasn't on his song list ("Mess is mine" - Vance Joy). That song was awesome! I would recommend anyone hire Austin to perform the ceremony music at their wedding! 5 stars.

    Thank you Daniel! You two are an amazing couple and it was an honor to be part of your special day!!

  • Our ceremony & cocktail hour wouldn't have been complete without Austin's talented music! It was the finishing touch that both needed & helped create the ambiance that we were looking for. We received so many compliments from our guests on the music that Austin played. He was so easy to work with from start to finish!!

    Thank you so much for the kind words Natalie! You were a pleasure to work with. If it weren't for meeting you I wouldn't have found the perfect venue for my own wedding. Can't thank you enough and I'm so glad you were happy with the music!

  • Austin was fantastic and did an amazing job performing music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He's talented, professional and a super nice guy. We needed a musician last minute and Austin was able to accommodate us on short notice and gave great recommendations on song selection. We couldn't be happier with our experience!

    Thank you Sabrina and Michael! So glad everything worked out so well. Beautiful wedding!! Red Maple Vineyard was absolutely stunning and I think we were all relieved that the weather held up. Congratulations again :)

  • Can not say enough wonderful things about Austin. He's professional, flexible, and oh so talented! The guests at our wedding were so complimentary of Austin's music, he really added so much to the ambience of our cocktail hour. Not to mention, he played outside amidst a torrential downpour, and never lost his cool. My husband and I highly recommend him for anyone seeking a quality musician for their wedding!

    Thank you so much Jenna! Even with the storm it was an amazing and unforgettable night!

  • We booked Austin to play guitar while our guests were arriving for our ceremony and for our wedding ceremony. I loved his music and so did our guests! We were so happy he had such a great list of contemporary songs to choose from. It was very easy to work with Austin (especially because we don't live in the Hudson Valley area) we did a lot of our planning over email, which was best for us. Thanks Austin, you're a talented musician!

    Thanks so much Lisa! It was a pleasure working with you and I loved your song selections :) Beautiful ceremony!

  • Austin was amazing! Our first meeting was over Skype, which was great because he was able to play us processional options. The day of our wedding he was a complete professional, on time and ready to go. He even learned a new song for us to play for our recessional. He gave us the perfect soundtrack to our ceremony and cocktail hour.

    Thank you Azzy!!

  • Austin is beyond professional in his demeanor. He arrived early, checked the acoustics all around our wedding venue until he found the right space where everyone can hear what he was playing and his choice of songs for our ceremony was second to none. On a day that is important as my wedding day, Austin had me assured that the music for the ceremony was not a thing that I or my wife (...mostly my wife :) ) would ever have to worry about. I can not recommend Austin enough.

  • Austin was amazing to work with from the start. We weren't set on any particular songs and he was able to give us a long list of great suggestions. He was able to take care of his set up in a timely manner the day of the wedding. His arrangement of the songs we chose was nothing short of amazing. Many of our guests commented on how intimate the ceremony felt because of the classical guitar. Everything went flawlessly and we couldn't have asked for better music for our day!

    Thank you so much Aliza! You guys were an absolute pleasure to work with and your ceremony was gorgeous. Congratulations again!!

  • Austin did an excellent job at our ceremony. He started with a half hour of classical guitar as guests arrived, and then played acoustic versions of Wonderful World, Here Comes the Sun, and Over the Hills and Far Away during the ceremony. Everyone thought having him there was a nice touch. We'd definitely recommend him.

    Thanks Mike. It was a pleasure playing at your ceremony and debuting my new 12-string guitar :)

  • Austin is the consummate professional and also a stunningly talented musician. He played classical guitar for my art gallery show opening - and it really took the entire experience for all attendees to the next level. I cannot say enough good things about him! He's a great musician and a pleasure to work with.

    Thanks Gabriella - It was great being part of your event.
