    First Class

    Jennifer and her violin added a peaceful and joyous mood to our small wedding. She guided us through music selections and had great tips and ideas. We couldn't be happier how everything went and would recommend her to friends and family. If you're looking to add not just music but class to your wedding, send her a message.

    Absolutely Recommend!

    Jennifer was so wonderful to work with for my wedding. She played the violin before/during our ceremony and during the cocktail hour. It set the perfect ambience! She went above and beyond by finding the specific songs that I wanted her to play at certain points of the ceremony. She also offered a long list of suggestions, which were so helpful! The violin sounded so beautiful and added the perfect touch to our wedding! I love hearing the music when I watch back our wedding video!

    Beautiful music

    Jennifer was my violinist for my 5/22/21 wedding. Her and the cellist she partnered with did a phenomenal job! I always knew since I began planning my wedding in my head as a little girl that I wanted a violinist to play at my ceremony and she sure did not disappoint. Jennifer is dependable and affordable! She is well versed in traditional wedding music as well as more contemporary songs that were played during cocktail hour. I walked down the isle to Canon D and it was absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much Jennifer!

    Last minute decision and so perfect!!

    My daughter decided to do a last minute elopement and the search for music was so last minute. Jennifer was quick to respond and so helpful. I knew little about what type of music to request and Jennifer made selections based on her vast experience and the music was beautiful!!
    Jennifer made our planning so easy and we could just turn things over to her and not worry!

    The Perfect Violinist

    Jennifer Johnson is a very talented, experienced violinist and a pleasure to work with. She was able to perform every piece of music we selected, as a soloist and with another musician, helping to make the perfect ceremony. We found her to be very flexible, even agreeing to play for first dances, outside of the church, during a time of unusual circumstances. We are very grateful that Jennifer was recommended to us.

    Just the Right Touch for our Minimony

    From the beginning through the final note Jennifer was great. She was helpful and very responsive to our emails and questions. I knew I wanted to have a violinist, but thought it would be out of our budget range for our small ceremony. I was wrong! Having violin music was so the perfect and created a true atmosphere of love.

    Richmond's Got Talent!

    Jennifer's professionalism is matched by her EXTENSIVE knowledge of all music genres. Not only did her classical repertoire perfectly fit our reception venue, but she also intertwined some songs that fit my family's ethnicity (e.g. Cielito Lindo) and contemporary favorites (from My Funny Valentine to Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal and even Coldplay!).

    A "Million" Dreams Wedding come true!

    Jennifer was absolutely fabulous to work with. When I needed to re-schedule my May wedding to September due to COVID, she was very flexible working with me on my new date.
    Jennifer sent along some music selections to get me going and we emailed regularly about some choices I was hoping she could play that were not on the list. She was so open to some new songs and offered some great suggestions when my fiance got stuck on the recessional. Overall we loved our music! We started with some Disney love songs, some selections from her list for the mothers, groomsmen, and bridesmaids, and my father and I walked down to Million Dreams- the whole ceremony was a dream come true! The Beatles choices Jennifer suggested tied right in to the readings we had selected (complete coincidence that worked out perfectly!) Jennifer and Maureen were amazing~ couldn't ask for anything more!
