    Amazing!!!

    Seth played at my bridal shower and did a great job and so it only made sense that he'd play at my wedding as well. Seth was extremely flexible letting us book him only 3 weeks before the wedding (our other musicians fell through). He and his crew already knew how to play all the songs that we requested. I had no doubt in my mind that they would be great and they were! Seth is so nice and so easy to communicate with. Seth's demeanor makes you feel at ease about the entire experience, which is so nice when you're stressing about everything else when planning for your wedding. I highly recommend Seth to anyone and everyone!

    So talented!

    My husband is a sucker for string instruments, so instead of having a DJ play music during the ceremony, we opted to have a violinist. Ideally we would have loved to have a quartet or something along those lines, but our budget was a little tight. But we have no complaints and having Seth play the violin as a soloist was perfect for our day. I found Seth here on Weddingwire and his reviews and samples blew us away. I contacted him and he responded quickly answering my unnecessary number of questions. I loved the fact that he is open to playing pretty much any song you could ask of him and that he plays nontraditional music for ceremonies. I have never been a fan of the traditional wedding music so this was definitely a plus. I definitely felt that he cared about what I wanted and was very open to making our ceremony music match our vision. Seth was very organized and finalized all of our details prior to the wedding. He was extremely professional and he so talented. My husband even said he almost started to tear up when he heard Seth begin to play during the ceremony! It was beautiful.

    Beautiful music

    I worked with Seth to get everything set and planned and he was great at responding and working with me. (None of my music was traditional, as we had music from Legend of Zelda, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Game of Thrones) Seth sent Michelle to come play the flute for us and it was lovely! Everyone loved the music!
