    Laure made my oldest daughter's wedding an unforgettable event. She is a top notch musician and professional. The selection of songs were perfect for our wedding venue and our family highly recommends her for any musical venue that you might need. Please feel free to contact me via email for any further details. I would be happy to help.

    We initially called Laurie in a panic four days prior to our wedding thinking there was no way she would be able to help us. Laurie immediately reassured us that she WAS AVAILABLE and she had no issue performing at our wedding despite the short notice. She made time to meet up with us two days before the wedding so we could review the song selections for the ceremony. The moment she played “all of me” by John legend i couldn’t help but tear up. She played so beautifully, and we knew we were fortunate to run across Laurie as if it was meant to be! The day of the wedding she was able to provide an amazing atmosphere beyond our expectations. She truly added to the experience for us and our guests. Thank you Laurie!

    Laurie was absolutely wonderful. She coordinated well with the officiant I hired (Patrice Handley). There was a lot of commotion during the wedding ceremony, but Laurie did not stop her music at all. She constantly played and was able to satisfy the guests while they waited.
