There is no denying Dwight is an exceptionally talented musician as well as an amazing person to work with. Dwight recently performed during the ceremony and cocktail hour at our June 22nd wedding in Waterville Valley, NH and it could not have been more perfect. Leading up to the wedding Dwight and I frequently communicated over email and he even took some time on a Saturday morning to meet me and my now husband to plan everything out. During that meeting he really got to know us as we talked about everything from our work to hobbies and of course our ideas for music. Then came the big day. In our meeting we decided that he would sing the song I walked down the aisle to. It could not have been more romantic. My only regret is that I could not be at the cocktail hour to hear him play as we were off doing the whole picture thing. What made it worse is that all of my guests loved him and his guitar. At the end of the day, you may find musicians that charge less, but let me tell you I would have paid Dwight double his asking price after working with him. He is a true professional in both the wedding and music industry. I will definitely be looking for an excuse to work with him. Probably not another wedding (for me personally), but an anniversary party perhaps. :)

Dwight was amazing - he fulfilled every request with ease and kindness. We made some last minute changes - the day of the wedding - Dwight was great! He was punctual and had everything set up. Our wedding was a destination from Florida to Camden, ME. Everything was site unseen and involved several conversations over the phone. Dwight made the whole process easy for us!
I would suggest Dwight to every bride.
Thank you Dwight for making our day so special!

We recently got married in York Harbor, ME and had a beautiful outdoor ocean-side ceremony. We hired Dwight to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour, and it was the best decision we could have made. Everyone was SO impressed with his skills! From day one, Dwight was so enthusiastic to work with us and just really supportive and positive throughout the entire wedding planning process. We could not have asked for a kinder, easier vendor to work with. As a couple, and a guitar player myself, the music was one of the most important aspects of our wedding day, and Dwight definitely nailed it. He worked with us to make our ceremony and cocktail hour music personal to our style, and even learned to play a couple new songs for us (one for our recessional and one for the cocktail hour)! We would highly recommend him to anyone, without hesitation!

My husband and I worked with Dwight on the ceremony music for our June 1, 2013 wedding. We contacted him pretty late in the process (3 weeks prior to our wedding to be exact) and everything turned out perfect. Dwight gave lots of suggestions of songs and when I had mentioned a song that he wasn't aware of he said that he could try to learn it but wasn't sure if there was enough time (totally understandable) We decided that for the best results of our day that we would go with Cannon in D and And I love her. People commented on how elegant and beautiful the music and day was. It was everything we hoped. Dwight was a pleasure to work with!

Dwight is a fantastic musician and his music blended very well into our ceremony and reception. We heard nothing but positive remarks and comments about both his guitar playing and singing. Many people commented "We wish we would have had him at our wedding!".
Beyond his incredible music, working and planning with Dwight was similar to working with an old friend. He's easy going, prompt, personable, and when we needed some guidance, he was tactful in giving his viewpoint.
You shouldn't think twice about hiring Dwight - he's the best!

There are so many good things I have to say about Dwight.
After seeing all of his wonderful reviews on various wedding websites I decided to give him a call, it was one of the best decisions I made.
My husband and I were married in February in VT in the midst of an enormous snow storm. Dwight was beyond a trooper, sticking it out playing for our ceremony outside, freezing with the rest of us! He was so easy to work with, even during our very first conversation over the phone it felt like I was talking to an old friend. His down to earth and easy going demeanor was such a comfort in the chaotic stressful wedding planning world.
Dwight not only played for our ceremony but also cocktail hour, and during dinner. We received so many compliments for him from friends and family alike. With ease, Dwight played beautiful music that fit the mood of the wedding as well as our the mood of our guests.
Dwight seriously was the perfect vendor for our wedding. I really can't rave about him enough. If you are looking for a musician for your wedding or event, I urge you to take a look at Dwight. He was very professional, organized, and a delight to work with. He won't disappoint!

Dwight was fantastic! We hired him for our wedding reception, which was held in a restaurant. He was great for the planning process, and went above and beyond with suggestions for planning our day. He was extremely quick to respond to our emails. Most of the planning was done from overseas and Dwight made the time to write us extensive emails and talk over the phone. We really felt that Dwight was very passionate about his work, which was immediately apparent in our communications. He learned a special song for our first dance and had a great sense of which songs to play for our guests. We got many compliments on his music at the end of the day. Look no further!

We hired Dwight for our outdoor wedding last year. He was amazing from the first steps of planning until the execution that day. He listened to the ceremony vibe that we were looking for and paid attention to our personalities and the wedding style. We only needed to meet with him once in person and he knew exactly what to do. He was self-sufficient working with the venue to organize wires, microphones etc... and really did an amazing job with timing and setting the mood. We will never forget our special day and Dwight helped to make that day perfect!

We LOVE Dwight!! My husband and I first saw Dwight's ad in a NH Bride book & went undercover to watch him play at a local venue to see if he was any good. Without knowing that we were scoping him out, Dwight came over and talked to us while he was taking a break, which was a big plus! We knew he was an amazing musician within minutes of watching him play, but when he came over to talk to us we knew he was what we were looking for.
Dwight was the first vendor we booked for our wedding, before we even had a date set or a venue. Dwight played for our ceremony, cocktail hour, & dinner, then we switched to an ipod playlist for people to dance, and Dwight closed out the night with some slower wind-down songs. Dwight was a perfect fit for our style and all of our guests loved him. Dwight made our ceremony music so personal and even learned our first dance song, which sounded amazing. I would definitely recommend Dwight to any bride looking for an alternative to the boring DJ who manufactures the same wedding every weekend. Dwight brings something special and unique to your day, and is a talented musician with a genuine down-to-earth personality. We had nothing but the best compliments from our guests about Dwight; everyone was so impressed and liked that he played loudly enough during dinner that you could hear him, but quietly enough that the guests could still talk to each other. Booking Dwight was the best decision we made for our wedding!

Working with Dwight to plan the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour was a wonderful experience. He is extremely organized and kind, and had great suggestions for us that helped us make the day memorable (and less stressful!) I appreciated that he took the time to learn two songs for us (one for the recessional and one for the cocktail hour), both of which were performed wonderfully. I would recommend him whole heartedly to any bride (or groom) out there!

Dwight was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process of selecting and previewing music. He was enthusiastic and easy to talk to since the first time we spoke on the phone. He went out of his way to meet with us to review music and always followed up with e-mails or phone calls to make sure he got all the needed info. He has a wonderful selection of music to choose from and is happily willing to learn your favorite song, as he did for our first dance. People are still talking about not only how great his music was, but how friendly he was! We couldn't be happier with our decision to have Dwight play at our wedding!

Dwight played for our May 12th wedding in Kennebunkport. He was so great to work with and extremely professional. He played for our cocktail hour and also our reception. He sang a Brad Paisley song for our first dance, which he learned in only 2 weeks and he sounded incredible. Everyone loved his voice and he also played our playlist for dancing throughout the night. By the end of the wedding he was more like a friend or relative. Next big event we have I will definitely make sure he is a part of it!

I would recommend him over & over again!!!

From my initial phone call with Dwight, I was thrilled. He showed such excitement and enthusiasm. In addition to being an amazing musician, he was truly a pleasure to work with and really helped make our special day perfect. Dwight went out of his way to make sure that we got to hear the songs that were important to us. Having Dwight part of our wedding celebration was one of the best decisions that we could have made!

Dwight is so talented! His music set the perfect mood for our wedding. It was perfect. Our interactions with him before and during the wedding were 100% positive. He is talented, creative, professional and very accommodating. I would recommend him to anyone who is having a wedding or special event.

We hired Dwight for our wedding ceremony and he was amazing. Several guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony music was and he was a pleasure to work with! I didn't really get a chance to talk to him much on the wedding day itself, but we had several discussions on the phone and Dwight was always so kind, responsive and aiming to please. Overall I think Dwight was one of our favorite wedding vendors and I would recommend him to anyone!

Dwight was easy to work with throughout the process of choosing our wedding music and did a wonderful job. We had him play for a bonfire the night before our wedding and also during the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner. I felt totally comfortable with him and knowing that he's done this many times before and had all the necessary equipment, microphones, power cords, etc. So I didn't have to worry about any of that. He was a lot of fun at the bonfire and plays lots of songs that everyone enjoys. Really, I have only good things to say about him!

Dwight is a wonderful guitarist!! He played at both our ceremony and wedding and did an amazing job. I would highly recommend.
He has a very comprehensive song list and even learned music for our first dance. He was very easy to work with and kept me relaxed!
