Wonderful Violinist

We booked Julie for approximately 45 minutes for our small beach wedding.

Julie was a great communicator and gave us all the information and co tract to book quickly.

She also provided us with an extensive song list - which we were surprised to see so many fun “non traditional” songs! My husband chose to walk down the aisle to RAIDERS MARCH and I chose to walk to KISS THE GIRL (little mermaid. We chose other songs for the pre-ceremony or other music such as MARRIED (disneys UP), MARRY ME (Train), and CAN TOU FEEL THE LOVE TONIGHT (lion king).

Julie was attentive and professional, showed up early to get setup. She did provide her own umbrella and only needed the chair reserved for her.

She also sent us a sweet virtual card and even signed our guestbook! We were so happy to have her as part of our beach ceremony and were so glad she could incorporate some fun and energetic (DISNEY) songs in our ceremony.

Would highly recommend Julie and would absolutely hire her again!

Beautiful music provided ny Paradies Ensemble

Paradies Ensemble played during my daughters wedding on 2/16/19. We hired them to play during the ceremony and cocktail hour. My only regret is that I didn't get to hear more of the beautiful music they provided. Many of my guests commented on how lovely it was to sit in the courtyard (while waiting for the ceremony to begin) and listen to Julie and Jim's music . They played popular songs at the cocktail hour and it was the perfect backdrop. They were professional from start to finish. Thank you Julie and Jim !
