Satisfied Client

Just Amazing! Words can't describe how beautiful & romantic Theresa's violin made our Wedding Ceremony! I couldn't have been more pleased. She played everything I asked and even learned a different version of a song the I requested. She really set the tone for the romantic theme of my wedding. It was perfect! And her violin performance was perfect! Thanks so much Theresa. Michael & I were so happy we found you. So many people commented on how beautiful your playing was. Thank You.

Satisfied Couple

Theresa was personable, professional, flexible, and a beautiful violinist. Her willingness to find & play the songs we were interested in really added a special touch & her transitions between songs was flawless. She really went the extra mile to make sure that the music for the outdoor ceremony would be loud enough without it being overbearing or carried away in the wind. She was easy to contact & correspondence was timely. We really enjoyed having Theresa be a part of our special day.
