It was a fun experience picking the songs for the wedding.

We got so many positive comments from family and friends about the string trio. It was a lovely combination of a traditional sound with modern songs.

We had our small wedding on 5/16 and Allison did an awesome job of remaining communicative and flexible throughout the weeks leading up to the ceremony. Since we had a smaller ceremony, we only needed one musician and the violin echoed beautifully throughout the venue. I would highly recommend Allison if you are looking for a musician!

Oak Meadow Wedding

We had one violinist and it was just right for our ceremony. She was very helpful in choosing the right music and in wording it correctly in the program. The music was beautiful!

Allison is a fantastic ceremony violinist. She arrives on time, is prepared with the music selections, Cliff (her husband) gets all the equipment in place and it's always a treat to hear her play before and after the ceremony. She is, by far, our most often booked violinist and favorite!! She plays a variety of music--even the theme to Star Wars once! Her recommendations for other musicians is spot-on, and can always be trusted. We love Allison!!

Allison is a true pro. In addition to her amazing talent on the violin, she is easy to work with. I appreciate her working with us to customize each ceremony so that each wedding is truly a reflection of our couple. We look forward to working with Allison again and again!
