Customer Reviews for Acoustic Wedding
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. Rosie; New York, NY
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! Jana
People were commenting about the music
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.” Tara from PA
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. Tom; Michigan
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! Amy from Minnesota
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! Amanda; Houston, TX
Used this music for reception as well
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 Wedding 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! Judy B; Vankleek Hill, Ontario, CANADA
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. John Blair; www.blairweddings.com
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 music.
John Anderson; Midwest Sound Company; St. Paul Minnesota
String quartet alternative
Simply beautiful guitar arrangements. Perfect for those looking for an alternative to string quartet. Dan; Cambridge, MA
Perfect music 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. Darlene; Prince Edward Island, Canada
Added an 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 atmosphere.
Perfect for my outdoor wedding ceremony
I found your CD online, and I love it! It is exactly what I was looking for. I am getting married in the summer, and
Acoustic Wedding will be played for our outdoor wedding ceremony. Thank you so much for making such a beautiful CD!
Tracy from PA
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. Lindsay; North Carolina
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. Kimberly; Florida
Recommended Classical Albums for Your Wedding
By Aaron Green, About.com Guide
I don't 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.
Amazing reviews from brides, DJs, photographers, families, and musicians :
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! Walt K.
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. Jaime
Customer Reviews for Acoustic Patriotic
"Hi Mark, I am working for an American International school in South Korea and am working on a video for our 11th grade class. Your music is beautiful and the Star Spangled Banner you play is perfect for it. Thanks for permission to use the song in our video." Thank you, Amber from Daegu International School, South Korea
Customer Reviews for Acoustic Christmas Acoustic Christmas 5.0 out of 5 starsBy Michael J. Dubay
I was looking for a collection of Christmas Carols performed on acoustic guitar, and that is exactly what this is. If you are looking for an instrumental combo or singing, you probably should look someplace else. The arrangements here are excellent, elegantly simple without being sparse or overblown, and the performances are both technically adept and emotionally sincere. Best of all, Mr. Magnuson avoids the pitfalls of over-engineering his recording by adding reverberation or other acoustic effects. The recording is crisp and full without being lush. It is like having someone in your living room playing Christmas songs. The overall feeling of this CD is peaceful without being sleepy. I would recommend it to anyone who likes their Christmas music simple.
