Erica truly made our surprise wedding spectacular. Besides her incredible talent, she was extremely friendly and accommodating. With less than a week to prepare (we planned the wedding in 3 weeks btw), she learned 5 popular music tracks, personally contacted the venue to learn more about the sound system, and went out of her way to bring additional gear to ensure that the sound quality was the best it could possibly be. Without ever rehearsing with her, she knew exactly what to do and how to pace each song to best fit the moment (Walking down the aisle, the post ceremony song, etc.) We can't speak highly enough about how pleased we were with her performance and her great attitude and willingness to help a couple who were under such a hectic time crunch. We would highly recommend her to anyone having an event or wedding.
