    Totally would recommend

    Lindsay is awesome. We met with her before the wedding to give her an idea of what we wanted in terms of music. I had chose to have live music by Lindsay for the ceremony and cocktail hour with a DJ for the reception. Everything transitioned so smoothly from the ceremony to the cocktail hour. I would definitely recommend her-plus she is super affordable. She is easy going which made the process easy.

    Everything we hoped for!

    I watched my wife walk down the aisle while listening to Lindsay Straw sing, and it was absolutely perfect. Lindsay has a beautiful voice and and is a talented guitarist. Her performance was everything we hoped it would be.

    We booked her after seeing her perform at a friend's wedding, and we immediately knew she was exactly what we wanted. She was very easy to work with and very professional. We cannot recommend her enough.
