Could not be Happier!
We wanted a great solo violinist to play at our wedding and Vicki did not disappoint! We were so pleased with how easy she was to work with and how beautifully talented is she. She enhanced our small outdoor wedding ceremony beyond measure.Sent on 09/07/2019
Vicki was so responsive to all of our questions and requests and could not have made the preparation experience better.
She has a large list of songs to choose from - both classical and more modern selections - and is a true professional.
She was wonderful all around and just what we were looking for!

We had an amazing experience with Violin by Vicki
We had such an amazing experience with Violin by Vicki! We hired both a violinist and a cello to play during our ceremony and cocktail, and Vicki herself played violin. They both did such an amazing job! We received so many compliments on their performance from our guests!Sent on 06/03/2019
But even before the wedding day, Vicki was great. I felt a bit like a diva asking Vicki to play "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters while our bridal party walked down the aisle, and she said no problem and learned it for us. Later on, a musician guest of ours told us that was a really hard song to play, so I'm just so grateful they learned it for us without hesitation. That was just so kind and really helped us personalize our ceremony.
We were really impressed and would highly recommend them!
Violin by Vicki's reply:Hi Emily, Wow, another great review... I can't tell you enough how much this means to us!
I can't thank Ms. Berckmann enough. I recently officiated a wedding where she was the violinist and I knew right away she was a total pro. Beyond her obvious musical talents what impressed me was all the "behind the scenes" activity that brides and grooms never see (and shouldn't have to). Ms. Berckmann coordinated with me regarding musical cues and all the other logistics that go with delivering a perfect wedding ceremony. Your guests will be impressed and you will not have to worry about a thing when you hire Violin by Vicki for your event.
