We found Lindsay after our original musician cancelled on us only a few months before the big day. I firmly believe things happen for a reason! If this had not happened, we would not have had the opportunity to work with Lindsay and enjoy her melodious voice . Listening to her sample music is what hooked me first and then her professional is what made me sign the dotted line. She sent out a questionnaire shortly after to really to get to know Steven and I. It was so detailed and well thought out; down to "what attire would you like me to wear?' I never thought to tell her what she could and could not wear. Finally, her openness and willingness to help us select the perfect wedding day compilation just completely sealed the deal! I knew that I could trust her to make our day truly special. She was very prompt the day of the event and she even answered my panicked emails the night before at some ungodly hour.

The ceremony like most did not start on time or go quite the way it was supposed too! She played right through and made sure that my walk down the aisle had a perfectly timed beginning and end. During the reception, I had numerous guests come up to me and compliment how beautiful the musicians voice was. I would completely recommend her to any one of my friend with upcoming nuptials. I cannot write enough praise in Lindsay's name! It was such a joy and pleasure having her there!
