Barbara is a dream to work with. She is a wonderful woman who loves her work and creates beautiful music. She guided us through planning the ceremony and cocktail hour music and brought together a team of people who were equally talented and professional, creating a signature wedding event.Sent on 06/19/2017

Barbara at 1st Choice Music Services is a cellist and performs, but can also help match you with the type of musician that you may be looking for. She works to only set people up with musicians that have been reliable in the past. We ended up not only using 1st Choice Music Services, but also Barbara specifically. She worked with us to help us find music and was highly responsive to any emails or questions that we had. She even called the night before to say that she was looking forward to the wedding the next day. Of all of the people I worked with to help make the wedding day happen, she was by far the best!Sent on 06/17/2013
1st Choice Music Services's reply:
Barbara Hedlund of First Choice Music Services is a consummate professional and I have referred brides to her for 15 years. As a wedding planner I must feel comfortable that a vendor I recommend will be a good value for a bride, that they will be willing to respond to communication and provide information in a timely manner and that they are a top professional in their field. All of those qualities describe Barbara and her work through First Choice Music Services. Gwen Wilson Nuptiae, The Wedding & Event Planners
They live up to their business name. They are the 1st choice in my book.
