choice for home wedding
Thank you for the beautiful acoustic
wedding music. The ceremony was at our house with only the
closest of relatives and friends by our side. The music was
perfect for our ceremony. I walked into the room with "Jesu, Joy of
Man's Desiring". "Air on the G String" played while we lit the unity
candles, and we ended the ceremony by playing "Minuet". You have a
great talent and I find your style of guitar playing very soothing.
I'd be pleased, if in the future you create a new CD, that you let
me know. I'd love to buy a copy.

Recommended Classical Albums for Your Wedding
By Aaron Green,
know if it's just me, but when I hear the acoustic versions of these
classical pieces performed by Mark Magnuson on solo guitar, I think
of an outdoor Autumn wedding. You'll find the Trumpet Voluntary, Air
(Water Music), and Air on a G String especially pleasing, thanks to
Magnuson's quietly reserved style of playing.
Special day will always be one to
music includes some of the best acoustic renditions I have ever
heard. Bach's "Air" is a favorite piece of mine and to have the joy
of listening to it acoustically was absolute perfection... because
I'm such a fan of good guitar as well. I only purchased two of the
songs, but I listen to them rather frequently. I went with the two
for a wedding I was putting together music for and I desperately
wanted something different... not overly traditional, in other
words. I looped the two as part of a seating/processional
arrangement and the combination created the perfect setting for what
turned out to be a very special occasion, in part because the
wife-to-be was getting married after having been divorced some 21
I received a tremendous amount of feedback and praise
for the entire music library, but your music was most certainly the
highlight for myself, the guests, and especially the honorees.
Because of your beautiful music, their special day will always be
one to remember.
I thank you for your music and for your talent and hope your gift is
heard far and wide. I know I will do my part to ensure that very
thing. Edward A.
Beachfront wedding, guests and
wedding party were barefoot!
Thanks for your music. It was
beautifully played and very well recorded. I was sent to your site
by a couple who had hired my band to play at their reception. They
wanted solo acoustic guitar at the ceremony; something I'd never
done. Any ceremony I had played previously, I had always done with
another guitarist. I liked your arrangements and used them to
develop my own versions. Everyone enjoyed the sound of acoustic
guitar, especially at a beachfront wedding where most of the guests
(and the wedding party) were barefoot!
Lovely simple classics
When I was planning my wedding, I knew right away that I didn't want
my ceremony to be ornate or stuffy. That's why I chose these
classics--they were simple, allowing my family and friends to enjoy
my wedding itself, rather than the music that marked it.

Relaxed renditions of classical
wedding ceremony music
I loved your CD! I used it for my
ceremony music and the selection I chose was one I felt wasn't a
typical choice and that was appealing for me. I felt that the CD
made the classic selections sound more updated, relaxed and cozy. My
DJ commented in particular about the music and he'll definitely be
recommending it to others. Thanks.

Customer Satisfaction Guaranteed
The replacement CD works great! Thanks
so much for your prompt and professional service!
Great CD choice for a Wedding DJ
As a professional wedding DJ who is
always looking for new recordings, I am very pleased to have come
across "Acoustic Wedding" on iTunes. The selections are versatile
while still including the popular mainstays. The sound quality is
extraordinary and the interpretations are emotional without being
"heavy-handed". I highly recommend "Acoustic Wedding" to brides and
wedding professionals alike who are looking for simple and elegant
recorded music to augment the perfect day.”
Special bride "felt" this music
The Acoustic Wedding music was just
perfect for the wedding of a deaf friend of mine! She was able to
"feel" the beat and walk down the aisle to it. And, being able to
purchase the downloadable music from my home computer made shopping
for the music soooo easy. Thanks so much!
People were commenting about the
I downloaded a few songs for a small
wedding I just had today. The music was beautiful. As a matter of
fact I had a couple of people comment about how lovely it was. I
figured for a simple wedding the acoustic wedding march would be
perfect. I was very pleased. Thanks very much for making my day that
much more unique, and very, very special.”

Beautiful gift for my niece
As I listened to the music I was
filled with a sense of wonderment. The passion you put into playing
the music is great. Those songs, which are some of my all time
favorite, (Ave Maria, Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring, and others) meld
together to create a beautiful tapestry. My niece will love it, I am
sure. It is an honor to be able to present it to her.
We used this CD for our wedding
reception as well
I had your samples playing on my
computer at work yesterday while deciding to buy your CD, and a
number of people walked by and asked "who is that? it sounds
great!". Everyone agreed the samples sounded wonderful. We're
getting married and having the reception where there simply is not
enough room for a band, DJ or even a string quartet. Since I've
always loved acoustic guitar, I think your CD will be perfect, not
only for the wedding, but as background music for the reception as
well. Thank you again!

Everyone loved these selections
My fiancé and I got married in an old part of Galveston. I had
always wanted acoustic guitar played at my wedding but couldn't find
a good CD anywhere! I did some web searches and bought two CD’s and
this was BY FAR THE BEST!!! Everyone loved the selections and I
still listen to the CD!

Used this music for reception as
We were looking for a certain type of music for our
wedding but found few CDs that were exactly what we were looking
for. Acoustic Weddings was perfect for our ceremony and we even used
some of the music for our reception.
Inspired a Celtic feeling
The CD was amazing! Aside from my husband playing one piece, we used
only your CD for all our ceremony music. We found these classical
pieces played on the guitar had a Celtic feeling to them which we
enjoyed as the bride was part Irish and the groom part Scottish. It
sounded beautiful in the Church. Thank you for providing us with the
perfect music for our daughter’s wedding!

Glad I found this
This CD is
amazing, exactly what I was looking for! I am so glad I found the
perfect music. Thank you for doing what you do.
Complements intimate ceremony
I found Acoustic Wedding two weeks before my wedding and it is
exactly what I was looking for. The music is absolutely beautiful
and perfectly complements the setting of our small, intimate
ceremony. Thank you so much for this wonderful CD!
Great for wedding slideshows
Acoustic Wedding would be especially helpful for the couple who
is looking for the right music for their wedding. I've also found
this to be the perfect music for wedding slideshows. Mark also has a
CD of Acoustic Hymns that you can check out as well.
New and fresh
This is a
great alternate take on great wedding song standards! For brides
that are looking for something new and fresh, this is it. I use it
for seating and ceremony music at events where I am responsible for

String quartet alternative
Simply beautiful guitar arrangements. Perfect for those looking for
an alternative to the string quartet.

for unique wedding
Thanks again and we are
so happy we could get this music. Our son is getting married and he
loves guitar, he plays himself, and they also wanted to be unique.
This will be perfect.

elegance to the wedding
My son and fiancé wanted
an outdoor wedding. We don't know many accomplished guitarists. Your
music was just what we wanted. The simplicity of unaccompanied
acoustic guitar added an elegance, while creating an intimate

a beautiful CD!

I wanted to do
something different for my wedding ceremony music. I really
love acoustic guitar, so I searched and searched and finally found
"Acoustic Wedding." It is just perfect. The music is so
soothing and beautiful. I highly recommend this album.

I looked all over and couldn’t find traditional songs done as
beautifully as these. It will be perfect for my wedding next
week. I think your music is amazing Mark…thanks for sharing it
with the world.
My friend was planning to celebrate
her wedding somewhere at her parents’ summer time lodge, a place
having a beautiful lake nearby that borders the laps of the
surrounding mountains, a heavenly place dear to me as we have spent
there plenty of our holidays and her choice to celebrate the wedding
at that location couldn’t be more perfect. The lodge was big enough
to host the couple’s families and few close friends, the same ones
who have been guests for so many happy week-ends and holidays.
During the entire evolution of her planning I assisted her and
helped in staging every event that was meant to be part of the
wedding ceremony and reception. The ceremony was planned to be held
outdoors with an officiant coming to perform the religious service
that was to take place on the lawn that stretched on the left side
of the garden. This lawn she planned to have it decorated with an
arch adorned with flowers, the place where the officiant would wait
with the groom for the bride to come.
Many of these details
were thoroughly organized, and whenever she needed me I was close to
her to provide my support and my advice. When it came to the music,
I remember to have done some researches, since my friend was caught
up with the floral element of her wedding celebration, therefore I
offered to find the music to fit perfectly in that heavenly décor of
her mountain lodge. Browsing the web pages for the wedding music and
the specific songs, I came across some acoustic wedding songs from Acoustic
Wedding that had
hearing samples for the willing ones to have the possibility to
listen to the songs before downloading them on the MP3 format.
I recollect the moments of audition when I found myself really
surprised at the sound of this acoustic music, with the soothing
touches on the guitar’s strings taking out beautiful songs revealing
at the same time a performance worth admiring. Listening to a Bach
rendition of “Air on the G string” I was carried slowly to the
realms of relaxation instantly feeling the depth of emotions that
only the sound of classical music can infuse.
Moving further with the searching I found many other acoustic
wedding songs, and knowing that my friend is a fan for classical
music and taking into account that the ceremony and part of the
reception were held outdoors in that splendid setting I forwarded my
musical suggestion to my friend and her fiancé.
agreed on my suggestions and revising together the choices of songs,
we started to figure out the way they fit inside the atmosphere of
the wedding ceremony. And as such we staged my friend’s “entrance”
as a bride on the sound of “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Deisiring” – by Bach,
“Air on the G string” for the moment of exchanging the vows and the
wedding rings, “Ave Maria” – the Schubert composition, for the
moment of pronouncing them husband and wife and Beethoven’s “Ode of
Joy” for the recessional part of the ceremony.
of songs belonging to the acoustic music were also planned to be
included in the displaying of the reception, especially in the
moments when everybody felt the urge to relax a little and take a
break from the dance floor and relax on the sounds of acoustic
