Beautiful ceremony music!!!

Matt was absolutely amazing to work with! He was very nice, professional, and responsive. He was even able to play Concerning Hobbits for me to walk down the aisle to! Definitely took our ceremony to the next level!!

Absolutely amazing

Matt was the violinist for my ceremony and cocktail hour at my wedding yesterday. Our wedding day would not have been what it was without him. He is hands down one of the best violinists that I have ever heard and I couldn’t recommend him enough. He was the talk of the night. Thank you Matt!

Pure talent

From the start communication with Matt was a breeze. Not to mention, Matt is extremely talented! His skill on the violin really made our ceremony. It rained on our wedding day but he made it work! Luckily the sky cleared in time for him to come outside to play for our ceremony and the music was beautiful. Our guests loved it and so did we! Thank you so much Matt!
