We used symphony a la carte for our ceremony music and ceremony amplification. They were absolutely amazing! They have an extensive song list, and we chose contemporary music (think Vitamin String Quartet) for our entire ceremony. The music was beautiful, and the ceremony amplification was flawless. I would highly recommend!Sent on 03/01/2018
Symphony ala Carte's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a beautiful ceremony and we were so glad to share it with you both!

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.Sent on 05/10/2019

Absolutely would recommend!
Allison was great! Prompt response. Very professional. She worked with our bride and groom to choose ceremony music to personalize the wedding ceremony to their wishes. She has lapel mic for officiant which was one less thing we had to worry about! All over great experience.Sent on 06/18/2019

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!
