    amazing ceremony musician!

    Lindsay played guitar & sang for our ceremony, and she was truly phenomenal. We weren't sure what we were going to do about music for our ceremony, but when I came across samples of Lindsay's music online, I knew that we wanted her! She has a huge variety of songs available to choose from, including so many songs that we love. (She will learn one that you request, if you're looking for something that she doesn't already know.) Lindsay was so easy to work with, responsive, and professional; we really knew we were in good hands. The only downside is that, as the bride, I didn't get to hear any of the music before the ceremony! But I heard from so many guests about how great she was and how much they enjoyed the music before and during the ceremony. Can't recommend highly enough!

    Perfect addition to our ceremony and cocktail hour!

    Lindsay played during our ceremony and cocktail hour - and we couldn't have been happier with how it went! She was great to work with, overall a seamless booking process. She had a large music selection and we received a lot of compliments from guest after the event on the music. Definitely recommend booking for your event.
