Dear Richard,

What a wonderful time!  Thank you for performing beautifully at our wedding on December 12th.  From the Celtic Alleluia to Gentle Woman and beyond, your trumpet playing accentuated, yet never was overbearing, to the mass celebration.

We are big fans of how a trumpet can bring a unique and almost "royal" element to a wedding - you did just that.

Well aware that the Sacrament of Matrimony is the key event in a wedding celebration, it needed the right music delivered the best way - and Richard, you didn't disappoint.  Thanks again for helping to make our Special Day just that.

Dear Richard,

Thank you so much for performing at our wedding!  Everyone we've spoken with has mentioned the outstanding trumpet music, how moved they were and how they will never forget the pieces you played with such artistry during the ceremony.

I will never forget coming down the aisle to the sounds of your playing "La Majest".  Colin and I want to thank you for helping make our ceremony truly exceptional.

We also really appreciate your spending time with us prior to the wedding, helping us pick out pieces that were particularly meaningful to us.

Here's A Positive Testimonial For A Professional Colleague I Sent:

Dear Richard,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you again for all your help in assisting us with the music for our Wedding Ceremony that took place on May 5, 2001. We had a great day.

Christopher Sala who was the trumpet Soloist was fantastic. The music sounded beautiful. It added such a special touch.

I will definitely refer you to others and our friends/family and also I have given your tape to a friend of mine who is also getting married.

Thanks again for your expertise. I really enjoyed working with you.


Maria and Todd G.

Dear Richard,

Thank you very much for the beautiful sound of trumpet at our ceremony.  I was listening and thinking of you when I was waiting to walk down the aisle with my Dad.  It was such a beautiful sound that it made me cry.  My mother-in-law really loved your sound of trumpet.

Thank you very much again for the beautiful sound and for your good support.



Hello Richard!

I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful job did at our ceremony.  I was able to hear most of the music, but I was more concentrating on not tripping, to be honest!  Hopefully my video will do your wonderful playing some justice.  That'll be my only chance to hear it in it's entirety.

I received many compliments on the ceremony and the music... Thanks again!  A great day for both Ron and I.

Thanks again,


Dear Richard,

I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful music you brought into our lives on Lori & John's wedding day.  You have a unique talent and devotion.  You made the moment exceptional.  Many people have asked for your telephone number.  You are a true professional.



Dear Richard,

There isn't enough room here to express our sincerest thanks for playing during our wedding ceremony.  The trumpet added such regality to our special sounded fabulous!  It truly differentiated the whole ceremony (from the other 6 weddings we've attended in the last few months!).  You truly made it special - thank you!

Sincerest regards,

Bill & Lisa


The Bowen and Cotter families would like to express our appreciation for your music on Saturday [at King's Chapel in Boston].  Several people came to us to express their appreciation for your music.

Thank you again for your advice and the delivery of a splendid concert [musical prelude].

Dear Richard,

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special.  It sounded beautiful.  So many people complimented us and it just gave the ceremony such a royal feeling.  I also appreciate your help in selecting the music and explaining how the processional and recessional should work.  I will strongly recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for ceremony music.  Thanks again, Richard - you are a true professional.

Carrie & Phil


We want to thank you for the absolutely gorgeous music you provided during our wedding ceremony.  We received so many compliments for your music.  Your help in selecting music and the music you provided to fill the church were an integral part of our special day.

Thank you,

Gretchen & Paul

Dear Richard,

Last night, as I watched and listened to the wedding video, I was able to concentrate on the many "pieces" of that day that all came together like clockwork and went by way too quickly.  You were one of the very important pieces, and how nice it was to relive the music as you played it both before and during the ceremony.

My biggest regret is not ever getting to meet the "pieces" of the day that stood in the background, but made it all happen.  Please know how much we appreciate your talent and presence on such an important day in our lives.

With warmest regards,


Dear Richard,

We just wanted to thank you for your beautiful trumpet playing at our wedding in Upton.  It was just wonderful, and we had so many compliments.

Thank you for making our day so special!


Jennifer & Dave

Dear Richard,

A belated thanks to you for the wonderful job you did at my daughter's wedding. 

Several people commented on your playing.  All positive!  Thank you for making Caitlin's day so very special.
