Brooksley did a wonderful job playing at our wedding- both the ceremony and cocktail hour immediately following it. She was fantastic and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
First, she was very responsive to all emails, had great suggestions (particularly important since I didn't really have much of a "vision" and she was able to almost read my mind), and was very flexible when our plans changed and we wanted to add in a bit more playing time. She made the entire experience super easy and was great to work with.
Second, she is super talented. So many of our guests commented on her outstanding performance and really enjoyed that atmosphere she gave to the cocktail hour. She can do it all- classical to modern pop.
Can't thank her enough!

Brooksley traveled from her hometown in Arlington, Virginia to our wedding location in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I was not certain about Brooksley's international availability, but she assured me that the travel would not be a problem. Brooksley provided a comprehensive list of songs she could play at our reception. These songs included genres from: Disney, R&B, Love, TV/Movie Themes and even songs from our favourite video games that we used to play when we were younger. We provided Brooksley with a playlist and she was very accomodating. At the venue, my wife and I were impressed on how kind and professional Brooksley was. She played everything on our playlist. All guests were impressed with her performance. One guest thought that we were playing a recording in the background, instead of having a live violinist. Brooksley also offered to play the song that I would dance to with my mother. My mother was moved on how extra emotional, Brooksley's music made our special moment. If you are looking for a violinist to play at any event, I would strongly recommend Brooksley.

Brooksley was absolutely amazing to work with. She focuses on the details, confirms the plan, is flexible, adaptive - - and most of all - her music at our wedding was everything we could have hoped for and more! She is a true professional - is a very talented musician - and we enthusiastically recommend her!!!!
I loved working with Brooksley! She played absolutely beautiful covers of some of the wedding couple's favorite songs (like Despacito and Call Me Maybe). The wedding guests loved it, and it is always so nice to have live music during a wedding ceremony! Can't recommend her enough.
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend them for your wedding!
