  • Matt was amazing to work with! It was the one area of the wedding I knew I did not have to worry, that Matt had it under control. We first found Matt online listening to his music and then listened to him in his studio, and my husband and I were in awe. The only request we had was for Matt to play “Here Comes my Girl” by Tom Petty when I walked down the aisle. Knowing that Matt took care of the rest of the music with his team, which was beautiful in every aspect. My husband and I would recommend Matt for the ceremony and cocktail hour.

  • Matt was fabulous! He was so easy to work with and very talented with the guitar. Matt played the music during our wedding ceremony at OceanCliff in Newport, RI and it was perfect! Both my husband and I were in awe when we met him at his studio to listen. We were undecided about music selection and left it to Matt. Every song played was beautiful to the ears. We would definitely recommend Matt.

  • We hired Matthew to play acoustic guitar at our wedding ceremony and he was just so awesome to work with! He loves music and can play anything you want him to. We wanted a folksy instrumental sound and he delivered it with ease. Matt was so accommodating and made the process really easy on us, especially since music isn't my husband and I's strong suit. All the guests loved the sound and said it was the perfect touch to our cozy, rustic outdoor ceremony. I'd definitely recommend Matt to be a part of your wedding day!

  • Matt & his team were amazing! The music was exactly as we wanted, and we got a ton of compliments from our guests. Matt did a great job during the ceremony as well as providing the entertainment/hosting for the reception. Very professional, prepared and obviously experienced. Highly recommended!!

  • Matt played an amazing set of songs for our outdoor ceremony. We were concerned that we wouldnt be able to get power out to him (based on where we were) but he put our minds at ease and came equipped with a small amplifier powered off a battery pack! The volume was perfect. I heard everthing from the alter but everyone was still able to chat amongst themselves. Our in person meeting was quick and gave us a chance to really hear what he could play, talk about pricing, and talk about what kinds of songs we wanted to hear. We got very positive feedback from our guests. Canon in D for the bride to walk down the aisle was a perfect match and was played perfectly. When asked about a song to walk out to we said "something light and cheery". That was all he needed to make the perfect pick.

  • Matt was nothing short but exceptional. Matt learned music for our wedding day, he is well prepared and a wonderful musician. I would recommend Matt to anyone that is looking to add that 'little extra' to their day.

  • Matt Kearns played solo guitar music for my wedding ceremony. Overall I was very pleased! Matt has a great repertoire of music. He was very responsive to my requests, but also very capable of offering suggestions and coming up with good music for before and after the ceremony, because I didn't feel the need to dictate every choice myself. He was friendly and professional. He contacted me by phone a month or two before the wedding to check in and make sure we had a good idea of what music he would be playing. In my search for ceremony music, I found that many of the people advertising were either overpriced or lacking in quality/talent-- I was very happy when I found Matt, because he provides lovely music at a very reasonable price.

  • Matt played the ceremony music at my wedding this spring! He was fantastic, accommodated my wishes generously, was fairly priced, and responded to my emails promptly. Most importantly - the music that he played was beautiful, timed well, and tasteful. I trusted Matt and his judgment very much, which took so much stress off of a very hectic day. If I were to travel back in time and do it all again, I'd hire him every time!

  • Matt played our ceremony and cocktail hour and did a amazing job! I left all the decision making up to him about song choice and we loved everything he picked. He was also very reasonably priced. Thank you Matt for helping make our special day amazing!

  • Matt was a great addition to our ceremony. His rate was affordable (more affordable than having our reception DJ set up for the ceremony), the music was beautiful, and he even learned one of "our" songs ("You Make My Dreams Come True" by Hall and Oates) for the recessional. 100% recommended.

  • Matt was fantastic. My priest (who is extremely difficult to please) actually commented during the ceremony how nice an entrance it was! He played during our cocktail hour also and though I didn't get to hear it, I heard it was awesome. I recommend Matt 3,000 times over!

  • I met with Matt and he took the time to play different styles of music for me to give me an idea of what other couples have done and what we could do for both the Ceremony and Cocktails. Initially I was set on having another instrument for the cocktail hour, but in the ended decided to go with Matt on the guitar only. About a week before the wedding I still had neglected to pick music, because I just couldn't decide. Matt called me to give me some ideas and recommendations. I listed to his ideas after talking to him and was able to pick the music for the processional, recessional, etc. I did decide to leave the music for the rest of the Ceremony and all of Cocktails up to Matt. I'm glad I did as he did a great job, and provided good variety. I'm glad I was referred to Matt as I didn't find him on my own initially, and I would recommend him to you if you're considering him! Great alternative to a string band, I think a little more modern, and oh so much better than playing a CD! ... Read more

  • From the little bit I heard walking up and down the aisle, the ceremony music sounded beautiful! I had Matt (guitar) and Kate (violin), who were wonderful together. Matt was a pleasure to work with and is also available to play guitar through cocktail hour. I wish I would've been able to enjoy the music more! But we were off taking photos... although I am glad our guests got to enjoy it!
