Kristen was great for my proposal. She communicated with me up to the event and played beautifully! My fiancee loved it. Thank you!
Kristen was amazing. From the moment that I booked her for my wedding, she was courteous, quick to respond, and accommodating. Kristen has a fantastic list of songs that she already knows and was able to play a special request for me and my husband. She didn’t miss a note! When a guest arrived late after the bridal party procession started, she didn’t let it throw off her timing and my bridal march started perfectly on time. The guests at my wedding could not stop raving about how beautifully Kristen plays the violin. My grandma, who is the biggest violin enthusiast I know, was blown away. I still can’t stop smiling thinking about how perfect she helped make our day!
Response from Kristen Monnik:
Thank you so much, Elizabeth!! I'm so glad everyone enjoyed the music. Best wishes to you and Josiah! :)
