Hi! I am a Juilliard graduate with an international performing career and experience with 10+ years of weddings as well as recording on movie, commercial/tv soundtracks and performances live on television. I continue to perform for corporate engagements, weddings, and private parties, with a variety of classical and pop music to choose from. If you prefer an ensemble, I also play with many of LA's finest musicians, and would be happy to provide a sample music list to fit your style.
Like many wedding couples of 2020, we were on the fence about proceeding with our wedding. We had already postponed once and were on the verge of outright cancelling the wedding. Once we made the decision to move forward, we had to scramble to make some last minute plans.
We knew we had wanted a violinist for the ceremony/cocktail hour. We reached out to Elizabeth after seeing some videos of her performing at weddings. She was promptly responsive and super easy to talk to; she spent nearly an hour going over all the details of the booking with us and answered all of our questions. The process of booking her was seamless. Once booked, we discussed song choices and connected her with our DJ. The ease at which she explained things with us before booking, and discussed plans with the DJ alleviated some of the stress of planning the day.
As for the performance, she arrived early for sound check, performed every song exactly as we wanted it, and all of our guests had nothing but amazing things to say about the music not only during our walk down the aisle, but also during cocktail hour. She was amazing, and we had a wide variety of song requests including classic songs and even some movie/show favorites (Star Wars, GoT).
All in all, it was a pleasure to hear her perform; she exhibited friendly professionalism throughout the entire process and was super easy to work with. 10/10, we will definitely book her again for future events.
We hired Elizabeth for our leap year wedding on February 29,2020. Elizabeth was absolutely amazing. She was very professional and did such an amazing job. We absolutely loved her and our guests praised her as well. We are very happy that we hired her and she made our wedding even more perfect. We highly recommend her. Thank you Elizabeth ;)
On time and prepared, excellent playing, included the song I requested. 10/10.
Elizabeth B was completely professional and interactive throughout the early origination planning process. A wonderful violinist and person. Our lovely wedding was enhanced by her presence and performance. Her attention to detail and response to the little details was exceptional and Adelaide and I would use her terrific talents again for other events? Thank you so much. Christopher Pluck
All our guests loved her!
So sweet and professional. Would book her in a heartbeat again. Played the violin beautifully.
Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with. She was incredibly professional and delivered a beautiful evening of music. Would highly recommend.
Elizabeth provided beautiful, heartrending solo violin music for my wedding, setting the tone for a romantic and meaningful ceremony. She performed Beatles music for the processional and recessional, as well as a selection of other melodies as guests first began to arrive.
Elizabeth was a professional throughout the entire process. My husband and I highly recommend her!
