    Professional and easy

    Lauren was great and easy to work with! She has a great music selection and we were able to have all the songs we wanted at our ceremony. Having her music at our ceremony made our day even more special! She was super flexible even when we changed our ceremony location last minute.

    Personalized

    Lauren was so easy to work with! I hired her for my outdoor wedding this year and we loved having her as our violinist. She was open to any songs that we wanted to play, but also recommended songs that she knows work well for weddings in general. Loved having her as our violinist!

    Amazing services!

    Lauren is fantastic! She was responsive and supportive throughout the entire booking process. With wedding services/requirements being so complicated due to all the COVID-19 restrictions, Lauren was flexible and helped adapt her traditional services to meet our needs. The music was incredibly beautiful, and definitely elevated the overall ambiance and romance of the ceremony. Lauren also was able to accommodate all my special song requests. I would 100% recommend Lauren's services!

    Beautiful Music!!

    Lauren played at our ceremony 02.01.2020, she was amazing! She answered all my questions and offered to help me pick music out as well. Lauren was the missing piece to make my ceremony special. Thank you!!

    The perfect touch!

    Lauren was amazing! She played for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Her music was the perfect touch, we received many compliments. Lauren was also professional and easy to work with. I don't know much about music so I left the playlist up to her. She sent me the song choices before hand and they were great. It was one less thing that I had to worry about. I highly recommend Lauren!

    Amazing! She made our ceremony perfect!

    Where do I even start! Lauren was absolutely amazing to work with. She was responsive and helped to answer every question as they came up. She helped to choose songs, learned a few new Welsh and Scottish songs for us and even did a performance with my cousin at our ceremony. Thank for so much Lauren for making our ceremony perfect! If you are looking for a talented violinist that will go above and beyond- hire Lauren!

    Emotional memories

    Lauren’s beautiful music brought so much more uniqueness to our special day. Her sample piece her website made me cry months before our wedding and made me cry as I walked down the isle with my dad on my wedding day. The memories of her playing still brings tears to my eyes. So glad I went with her, beyond professional, responds very quickly with any questions you have. Couldn’t recommend lauren enough!

    True Professional.

    Lauren was very helpful with assisting us in our song selection. My husband and I wanted a specific song we heard in Rome, but didn’t know the name. We had a short clip of the song and she was able to recognize it right away. She then assisted us with coordinating good songs to flow well based off that one song we loved. The moment I heard that song play (my cue to walk down the aisle), it was absolutely perfect. Everyone kept complimenting me on how she did such a great job. She was communicative, helpful and most importantly, an excellent violinist. Thank you Lauren!

    Made our day so special

    Lauren was so great! I loved the character that she brought to our wedding, it was very classic. Her violin skills are great, and she is extremely easy to communicate with. She also helped us when we couldn't decide on certain songs. Thanks so much Lauren!

    Lauren was fantastic! She was easy to contact and responded quickly to all of our questions and concerns. She played solo violin for our ceremony, but also offered to find another musician to play with when we were considering adding a cello too. Not only did she provide wonderful music, but she also provided us with a list of songs, including contemporary and classic rock, pop, love, classical, and almost anything else. If she didn’t have the music she offered to get the sheet music (for a very reasonable fee). Many of our family and friends complimented us on her selection of music (most of it she put together herself). We would highly recommend her!

    Lauren was wonderful for our wedding! Working with her was so easy. Even from being from Rockford, she traveled to our wedding in Geneva Illinois. Before the wedding, she sent some music that we could choose from and even said if we don't see a song we want, we can let her know. She was very prompt and played beautifully during the ceremony. I walked in to A Thousand Years and words can not describe how wonderful it sounded when she played. We would highly recommend her and would use her again if we get the chance!
