Thank you for reaching out to all of us about our experience with Peter, and, we cannot thank him enough for helping us convey our love, pride and gratitude to our guests through the power of song on our special day. Absolute class human being, warm, friendly and the consummate musician; Peter very much made the day even more special with covering the custom song that my wife had created for me for our wedding day an absolute bonus. Peter collaborated with one of my good friends on this (in near real time with solo guitar and vocal) and played it live during our wedding ceremony. Needless to say there were manly tears ;).
Our thanks to you and to Peter for your professionalism and our gratitude to Peter personally for his beautiful playing of all our favorites both pre and post ceremony. More than happy to collate these comments cohesively on The Knot and make references to our family and friends accordingly!
Warmest Regards;

The musicians were delightful to have and went above and beyond to make sure the happy couple had the day they dreamed of. Peter even learned a new version of a song to accommodate their request.

Peter played beautifully. He mastered the Jewish songs and brought so much class to our outdoor event. His timing was perfect and the music was everything we’d hope for. Beautiful music to float in. Even when the rabbi asked “can I have a chord” Peter gave him the perfect note! How? I don’t know. What a musician—so responsive to our requests too.

I didn't get a chance to thank Peter and Justin personally but wanted to say how amazing they were. Their music added so much to the ceremony. It was very last minute when we were told the church where the wedding was originally planned was still not going to be open and we would need to move to the clubhouse at the reception site . So as a very distraught mother of the bride praying that our 2nd attempt at this( it was one of many weddings postponed from May) would happen I greatly appreciate their being available. Honestly I think it was better than the original plan.
Anyway please pass along all our thanks and I hope we have reason to call them again.

Peter and his band Alegria were fantastic, and I want to thank you again for the recommendation. In several email exchanges and a few phone calls leading up to the wedding day, Peter was extremely easy to work with on song selections, and it was fun for us to see that he was actually excited about getting to play some selections that weren't in the typical wedding repertoire. It was kind of a blur, but I definitely remember hearing Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Tarrega, which Peter said he could polish up for the occasion. Curtis Mayfield's People Get Ready did its job in getting guests ready and getting the wedding party down the aisle. That song set the tone for Marie's processional, the Beatles' I've Just Seen a Face, which Peter and Alegria worked up as requested in a slower style. To top it all off, they headed upstairs and performed two sets of fun and danceable music (maybe three? like I said, it's a blur!) during our reception, too. It was all perfect.
Feel free to use any/all of that for a testimonial on the web site, if you like. Hope to see you in the new year.

Peter was wonderful. Unfortunately, I didn't hear as much of the music as the wedding guests did because I was inside until it was my turn to walk down the aisle and I missed much of the cocktail hour due to pictures. I do know that he went above and beyond the call of duty playing outside in the chilly temperatures and wind without a single complaint! I would definitely recommend Peter to any Charlottesville bride looking for a professional musician. I also have nothing but praise for Sam Hill Entertainment and the way the entire contract process was handled.

Thank you SO much for encouraging me to book Peter Richardson for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. You were right he is excellent! Peter was an absolute joy to work with. He checked in with me weeks prior to the ceremony to provide me his song list, and even offered to learn anything he didn't already play (which wasn't necessary based on what we wanted:) He worked with me to make up the perfect song list for my ceremony. Wedding days can be VERY hectic, and it was wonderful not having to worry about a THING with Peter. He was there early, was so friendly with all the guests, and played beautifully. I would recommend him for every bride out there (or anyone needing a classy, professional, and friendly classical guitarist at any event).

Hi Leah & Andrew,
The whole honeymoon and wedding were really great.
Peter Richardson and then, Alegria, were awesome! We were so pleased,
and really could not have asked for better.
Peter was great for the outdoor ceremony and pulled through at the
last minute with a song request from Ann for a Bjork song. He nailed
the song out in 2 days time, and was able to play it at the wedding.
Hearing the song really helped to calm Ann's nerves as she started
walking down the aisle, and made it very memorable.
A lot of people commented that they really liked the band for the
reception. The mood they set was perfect. They were also very
accommodating as far as taking impromptu breaks, I think they took a
couple requests, etc . . .
We do not have a big group of dancing friends. Most of our friends are
musicians so, I think they really enjoyed hearing a band that did not
do bad renditions of today's top 20 songs. Alegria really does have
their own unique style to their music.
In short, they were great!

Hi Peter,
I didn't get the chance to thank you personally for playing the guitar solo of the Bjork tune during the ceremony. It was beautiful and I was thrilled to hear it. You and Alegria were wonderful and really set the mood for our wedding. All of our guests enjoyed the music.

Hello Justin,
Peter was awesome. He arrived on time and played wonderfully. Amy and I were very happy with him and would not hesitate to recommend him to friends. Peter kindly agreed to play an additional hour for us. The music he chose was very appropriate for our wedding.
Overall we were very happy with him and are glad we had him in our wedding.
