Lauren was very helpful with assisting us in our song selection. My husband and I wanted a specific song we heard in Rome, but didn’t know the name. We had a short clip of the song and she was able to recognize it right away. She then assisted us with coordinating good songs to flow well based off that one song we loved. The moment I heard that song play (my cue to walk down the aisle), it was absolutely perfect. Everyone kept complimenting me on how she did such a great job. She was communicative, helpful and most importantly, an excellent violinist. Thank you Lauren!Sent on 12/03/2018

Amazing! She made our ceremony perfect!
Where do I even start! Lauren was absolutely amazing to work with. She was responsive and helped to answer every question as they came up. She helped to choose songs, learned a few new Welsh and Scottish songs for us and even did a performance with my cousin at our ceremony. Thank for so much Lauren for making our ceremony perfect! If you are looking for a talented violinist that will go above and beyond- hire Lauren!Sent on 09/16/2019
