Wedding 10.18.19

Mark is absolutely incredible - probably the best musician I've ever had the pleasure of being around. Mark played violin for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I only had one request, the song that I walked down the aisle to - I left everything else to him and it was the best. Mark exceeded my imagination in terms of skill, and the violin was the absolute perfect ambiance for both ceremony and cocktails. I absolutely cannot recommend Mark enough and we are so happy he was a part of our special day!

Best violinist in NEPA

Mark Woodyatt is a gifted musician. He performs from the heart and puts his all into his work...and that is someone you want performing on your Wedding Day. Mark catered to our every need, learning several specialty songs for our ceremony as well as acting as a choir director last minute for a group of young singers I had planned to sing at our ceremony. He learned a song on the piano for them as well as recorded it in his studio for us to practice with. He has top notch equipment, can basically play any song you can think of, is also a gifted pianist as well as a violinist, AND he gives a performance that is second to none. It is so easy to tell that Mark lives and breathes his work, and our families and guests were so impressed by his professionalism and talent with several people saying that “The violinist earned every penny you spent on him.” On top of the quality service, fair pricing and music, Mark was very communicative and engaged in working with me to plan my special day. Thank you for your kindness and passion Mark! If you are looking to hire a musician for your Wedding day or special event, Mark has been playing music for so many years, and and I can truly say he can take anything you can throw at him, and make your day a fairytale!!!! THANK YOU MARK! ❤️
