I unexpectedly found myself needing ceremony music with two weeks to go before my wedding. A very stressful situation turned into the best decision I made for my ceremony by reaching out to Jennifer! She was a joy to work with, and I thank my lucky stars that she was available. Jennifer is incredibly talented, and I highly recommend her!!
