Sonja was beyond fantastic in all aspects of preparing and performing for our wedding! She was quick to follow-up with us with any questions we had and even learned 2 new songs for our special day, even going so far as to find the perfect backing track for our first dance (which she played wonderfully!). She was the epitome of professionalism. She arrived an hour early to ensure proper set-up of her audio equipment, meet with our officiant, and warm-up before her performance. In addition to playing the ceremony processional and first dance, she also provided music before the ceremony began and during cocktail hour! Our guests loved her and she added such a special touch to our wedding. Lastly, Sonja was simply a pleasure to have at our wedding. She is a genuine and warm person that my mother-in-law was delighted to chat with as she packed up her equipment after the ceremony. If you have an upcoming event in need of a violist, do yourself a favor and call Sonja, she's the best!!!Sent on 06/15/2019
Sonja Whisman's reply:Thank you so much Alex and Alison! It certainly was a sweet experience, playing for your wedding which I will remember it for a long time. I loved being part it.

Sonja was a joy to have at my wedding! She has great communication prior to the event. Went over the songs I wanted her to play, even sent live examples of specific songs! She was excited with me doe my big day! She showed up promptly, didn’t need any direction and knew exactly where to go and what to do and made the music process a breeze! She did a fantastic job! Koran of compliments and I can’t say enough about how great of an experience it was with her. Thank you sooo much!Sent on 08/24/2019

The perfect wedding detail!
Sonja's music was a beautiful touch to our wedding and added a little super special something, one of the best details we are so happy wasn't overlooked. She was quick to respond and easy to communicate with, prepared with a variety of music and suggested options. We appreciated her keeping the lines of communication open and continued to follow through all the way to the big day, making sure everything was clear and right, not to mention her warmth and kindness. Sonja made the experience working with her seamless and a pleasure. Definitely A+++. Thank you Sonja!Sent on 07/26/2019

Having Sonja at my wedding was the frosting on the cake. She did an amazing job and all of my guest loved hearing her play before the ceremony. She was very responsive and thorough with her questions. I would definitely recommend her for any event and would love to have her at my 25th anniversary.Sent on 05/18/2019

Wonderful violinist and person!
Sonja played violin at our wedding in Sedona and was phenomenal! She is extremely talented and such a nice person. Communication was easy and she has a vast list of songs and types of music she knows already to choose from, she even brought a microphone and speaker for our officiant. I would highly recommend booking Sonja!!Sent on 05/05/2019

We could not have asked for a better experience working with Sonja. She was easy to work with, versatile and flexible. She was helpful in making music selections and had several suggestions that fit right in line with what we envisioned. She also offered to learn anything we wanted if she didn’t already know the piece.Sent on 05/20/2019
She arrived early to set up — that helped reduce our stress level!! She played before the ceremony, and post-ceremony during cocktail hour with classical to modern music everyone loved and enjoyed. She impressed the guests … we received many compliments after the wedding about the lovely violin music. She has quite a range of genre’s so you can get anything you want. We had classical, some modern and even some 60s pop music. I would recommend her to anyone for any event! It meant a lot to me to have such a talented violinist provide live music as I walked down the aisle. I absolutely loved Sonja's playing.

The best last minute idea
We were getting married in Sedona with just 6 people attending and thought of adding a violinist just 10 days before. If it worked, it worked, and if it didn’t it wasn’t a big deal. I came across Sonja and after talking with her we knew we had to have her. The day was perfect and her beautiful music had people in tears. I couldn’t have pictured anything better. She was very easy to communicate with and her choice of music was awesome. I would tell anyone that is looking for music to consider her, it was more than I could have asked for! Thank you so much Sonja!Sent on 12/02/2018
Sonja Whisman's reply:Thank you Maddie for such a sweet review. It was an unforgettable moment fore sure. I had a wonderful time playing for you. ❤️

Here is a violinist who can tailor your requests to create a wedding that will move your spirit. Or you can leave the playlist up to her and a magical evening will unfold. Many guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music and even a ten year old was compelled to make a toast to Sonja!Sent on 07/12/2018

Kate · Married on 05/20/2018
We hired Sonja to play at a small wedding for a couple from back East. It was fairly last minute for wedding season and Sonja was able to accommodate us. Her repertoire is large and was able to play the song our bride chose just minutes before the ceremony. Her violin music lent a lovely tone as guests arrived. We look forward to working with her again.Sent on 05/24/2018
Sonja Whisman's reply:Thank you Kate! It is such a beautiful place and they were such a lovely, super-in-love couple!!! A real pleasure all the way around.

We were so happy having Sonja as our violinist in our wedding. She did such an amazing job! It was just like I pictured a violinist would be at my wedding. She definitely put the elegance. My mom fell in love with her music, our guest loved all the songs. She played in our ceremony and the cocktail hour and it was so beautiful! She was so happy to coordinate the Ave Maria with my brother for our ceremony, my brother with the vocals and the Sonja with the violin, just beautiful... We were so happy. 5 star rating from us for sure!Sent on 11/30/2017

Sonja was phenomenal to work with. She learned two new songs for our wedding and was very responsive to messages. Our wedding was delayed quite a bit and Sonja just rolled with it. Her playing was beautiful and added a lot to our small private ceremony. I've watched our video several times just to listen to the music. We definitely recommend her!Sent on 08/18/2017
Sonja Whisman's reply:It was really enjoyable meeting your family/new family and be part of your sweet day. Thanks for giving me the honor to play for you.
