    Beautiful Celtic Music!

    Elise and her musicians were FABULOUS on her wedding day. Elise was so extremely pleasant to work with from the very beginning. She set up a phone call for us to go over everything - playing all of the music options both live over the phone with me and also sent recorded versions as well. We hand-picked each song for each part of our ceremony that we wanted to play. She also played for our cocktail hour as well. The music was BEAUTIFUL! We received so many compliments and it was just the perfect cultural touch to bring in our Irish roots to our ceremony and cocktail hour. It was also so different from the cookie cutter selections most people have at their weddings - I loved that ours was true to our heritage, beautiful, and different! I would hire Elise and Celtic Music for Your Wedding for my wedding again in a heartbeat. Did I mention she played at my sister's wedding as well?! Thank you for everything!

    We had an intimate wedding ceremony with just immediate family members and decided late in the game that we wanted to add music. We had some celtic elements in our ceremony (a hand fasting ceremony and my husband wore a kilt) and thought it would be nice to highlight that with some celtic music, which we love as well. We were so grateful that Elise and her colleague Andy were available (I am sure it helped that our wedding was on a Friday :-) ). The music was heavenly and made such an impact for our ceremony.

    Elise was so easy to work with, extremely responsive, professional and great with follow up. She made great recommendations for songs to match our ceremony, and helped us select the right mix of instruments to create the sound we wanted without having to add additional musicians so we could keep things intimate. It was absolutely perfect. I highly recommend working with Celtic Music for Your Wedding!
