The perfect addition to our day!
When we were first looking for ceremony and cocktail artists I imagined it being only instrumental because so many vocalists all sound amateur. Then we found Sara. Once we heard her voice I knew she was the perfect person to elevate our event. She was able to learn a Jewish religious song as well as the song I wanted to walk down the aisle to - even though there was no sheet music available. Looking back I can't imagine the day without her. Her voice is soft and pure and she was a true joy to work with!Sent on 04/15/2019

Sara Azriel truly made our wedding magical. Her voice was the perfect expression for our day. It was like an angel was singing. I would recommend her to anyone. My favorite was when she sang "Do you Remember" for our first dance. She brought me to tears. She is so amazing!!! And she made the process so easy for us. You always want your wedding to perfect. She made it unforgettable. Thank you Sara!!! ❤Sent on 06/11/2018

We had a great experience with Sara Azriel for our Christmas Wedding. Her voice was AMAZING and she was flexible with us when we asked to change a song last minute. She was very professional and communicated with us throughout the months leading up to the wedding. I would highly recommend Sara Azriel and hope to book her again in the near future!Sent on 06/12/2018
