Honey of the Heart really made our wedding complete. They took care of everything from sound, DJ, live performance, and learned a bunch of song variations that were very special to us. They are so loving, caring, and thoughtful people.

An integral part of a wonderful night
First and foremost, Honey of the Heart are extremely talented musicians. The music they brought to our wedding was beautiful, and perfectly tailored to our requests, including traditional Jewish songs. As a huge bonus, they were also extremely prompt and professional from day one, making planning for the big day as painless as possible. I couldn't ask for a better team to work with.
