    Great music! Jennifer is very talented.

    Our ceremony music was perfect! We were able to pick the songs we wanted to make our ceremony special for us. Jennifer was very responsive whenever I had questions and was very thorough in figuring out the details and when to play what song. She was also very affordable which I appreciated!

    Beautiful music and great professionalism

    From helping me to choose music to timing their playing around slow walking toddlers they made sure to make every step of the process wonderful and every note of the music perfect. I could not recommend them highly enough!!!!

    After playing for hundreds of wedding ceremonies, I know how to time the music for the processional. Sometimes the toddlers do take a little longer to get down the aisle! I also enjoy helping brides pick music for their ceremonies. It was a pleasure working with you!

    Sounded like a recording

    Before I entered the church I heard the quartet.
    Jennifer and her quartet sounded so perfect I thought they were a recording. Excellent in every way. My guests are still complimenting me on the ceremony music!!

    Thank you so much!

    Wonderful!

    Jennifer played for our wedding ceremony this past weekend. It was an outdoor wedding and was pretty chilly outside but everything went smoothly with Jennifer. The ceremony music was perfect. Our guests loved it. Jennifer was professional, friendly and helpful from the moment we first started emailing back and forth. My now husband and I had a bunch of questions regarding the details of the music during the ceremony and Jennifer so graciously answered all of them and always in such a timely manner. Highly recommend!!

    Would hire very again and again

    Jennifer was very responsive leading up to the wedding day and that was much appreciated. The moment I heard her playing as i started walking down the aisle, I lost it. She sets the mood in such a romantic and special way, and she also custom played our favorite love song. She was amazing. Thanks Jennifer!

    Amazing Surprise!

    I hired Jennifer (and her cellist friend) as a surprise for my husband to play our first song. Not only did she do a great job of hiding the surprise from him, she played an incredible rendition of All of You by John Legend and Moondance by Van Morrison (our anniversary dance song). It was such a fun surprise that I decided on a little last minute and Jennifer was more than accommodating. She was inexpensive and definitely worth every penny.

    Just the right touch

    Jennifer plays beautifully. She was just the right touch to my small, intimate, garden wedding. She was flexible and available on short notice. She sent me an extensive list of music to choose from and said that she could play almost anything I wanted. I selected a song that wasn't on her list and she played it beautifully. I highly recommend her. .

    I loved working with Jennifer Johnson! She is very friendly, flexible and responsive! I live in Germany and got married in the US, I was communicating with Jennifer through e-mails, she took into consideration that I was abroad, not having much time and she made it very easy for us to organize that part of the wedding. She welcomed my ideas, was very helpful and flexible, she always responded to my e-mails quickly, that was important to me! She was perfect during the ceremony, she played a beautiful music! My only regret is that we didn't get the chance to talk to her because we were so busy with our guests and with the photo session! I would highly recommend Jennifer Johnson!

    Jennifer was fantastic to work with for our son and his fiancé’s wedding. From the moment we contacted her to determine her availability, she was extremely responsive and flexible and was a perfect resource for selection of music. In addition to having a violinist for the ceremony, we elected to have a cellist as well and Jennifer was gracious enough to secure our cellist for the big day. Both of our musicians arrived in plenty of time to scout their location in relationship to the outdoor ceremony. And as for the music...it was so very beautiful! What a wonderful addition to the ceremony. We could not have been more pleased with Jennifer’s services!

    Working with Jennifer was probably the best decision that I made leading up to our wedding. I had a pretty non-standard request involving some more pop/rock-oriented pieces and a more extensive ensemble, and she was attentive and helpful in making the vision a reality. She is a talented musician who played moving renditions of everything from The Velvet Underground to The Beatles to Bruce Springsteen, but she was also approachable, communicative, and from our very first contact made me feel like we were partners with a shared goal that was equally important to both of us. I would recommend Jennifer to anybody without hesitation, as it would be hard to match her talent and professionalism.

    Jennifer Johnson Wedding Violinist's reply:

    The groom arranged all of the music for this ceremony. He had a vision with music requests that had special meaning to him, the bride, and the family. I helped bring the music to life. We performed some pieces with a violin duo. Others were arrangements for violins and guitar (with the groom's father playing guitar). The last set of pieces were for a "band" which consisted of violins, guitar, and members of the wedding party playing percussion instruments. We even had a "groupie" (a random person walking through the garden) who wanted his picture taken with everyone. This will definitely be one of the most memorable weddings I've ever played because it was so unique! It was a pleasure working with you and performing for your wedding ceremony.

    Jennifer and her cellist performed beautifully at my wedding on April 14 2018. I directly worked with Jennifer and she helped me with the music selections and made it cohesive for the wedding ceremony. I got so many compliments from my guests. I have to say, I was quite moved myself when I was walking down the aisle. Jennifer is a professional and added a classic touch to my wedding.

    Jennifer put together and led an outstanding string quartet for my wedding ceremony at the Valentine in Richmond, VA. Jennifer was very communicative leading up to the wedding and she made the music selection process so easy and pleasant. Our guests enjoyed classical selections while waiting for the ceremony to begin and were treated to skillfully executed arrangements of traditional processional and recessional music. Jennifer and her colleagues played beautifully and made our ceremony truly special. Our wedding coordinator commented that it was the best wedding quartet she had ever heard!

    Jennifer was amazing to work with. She responded quickly to all of my emails and was incredibly helpful in picking out songs. I wanted some contemporary songs and she was more than willing to help me with that. I was on the fence on hiring someone but I’m so happy I did, especially after hearing multiple people say that as soon as she started playing they started crying. She set the mood for the ceremony so perfectly.

    Jennifer was wonderful!! When we first started planning this wedding, we thought it would be beautiful to have a violinist. We found Jennifer and could not have been more pleased. She is easy to communicate with and very affordable. She was helpful from the first time I emailed her. She helped us with song selection and incorporated our request of "Home" for the recessional. Jennifer is very talented, and it was perfect walking down the aisle to her beautiful music. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

    What a treat. Ms Johnson was on time and played beautiful classical and contemporary music for our wedding and reception. Many of our guests commented on the class she added to the affair and her willingness and flexibility to meet Catholic standards. I highly endorse her for any event needing fine string music. Her cello player was a treat as well.
