Wedding Dreams Came True
Hiring Kristen for our wedding ceremony sound was a very easy and good choice! She was quick to respond to correspondences, helpful when asking for advice/recommendations, and made the booking/planning process very simple. I already knew what song I wanted to walk down the isle to (and that I wanted it to be played on the violin) before reaching out, and since I was unable to meet with her in person before the wedding rehearsal, she sent me a recording of her playing the song on the violin for me to listen to before moving forward with her service. It gave me chills and we immediately booked. On the day of, in person, it sounded even more amazing - which I didn't think was possible! She helped make my wedding dreams come true! Thank you so much for providing beautiful sound to Matt and I's wedding ceremony, Kristen! I highly recommend!Sent on 12/07/2018

Kristen was amazing!
Kristen played violin during my wedding ceremony...she gave us a list of songs that we could choose from, but also said we can request others...at our request she played some Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Ramones, and Queen, but also a few songs from her list, including the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, and the Game of Thrones theme... which everyone loved! Kristen was professional, super easy to communicate with leading up to the wedding, friendly, kind, and an awesome violinist. So happy we hired her...she helped make our wedding ceremony very memorable. Highly recommend her!Sent on 04/13/2019
