Natalie was fantastic with my New York proposal, she was very helpful and quick to reply. She worked with our photographer and helped stage my secret proposal. Her performance and professionalism were top notch. Something we will never forget. I would definitely recommend her.

I hired Natalie to play violin during a proposal in Central Park. Natalie was consistent with communication/logistics, really helped and went the extra mile regarding song choices, and was an excellent musician.
I can't recommend and thank Natalie enough. She made my proposal an amazing experience.
She did an amazing job. We made the plan and she was prompt and kept me up to date. She set it up perfectly and played the songs I wanted perfectly. Thank you Natalie for your work in helping me have an amazing experience.
Natalie was absolutely amazing. Very professional, and made sure that everything went well and flawlessly. I was proposing to my girlfriend and hired her to play the violin in central park at bow bridge and there was a chance of rain, so she gave us a Plan B location incase it rained and continuously stayed in contact to make sure everything was perfect. Luckily it did not rain and everything went according to plan. I highly recommend her and will continuously recommending her to anyone I know who needs her services.
Natalie did an amazing job. She learned our wedding song and played it flawlessly. She was available to talk with as we planned our event and was flexible wit our plans. I will definitely be recommending her to anyone who needs a professional, friendly violinist.
Natalie was there at the exact time . She played beautifull . Thank you. Natalie for making this event so special .
I booked Natalie for my wedding in Central Park, NY just days before the ceremony. Natalie responded to all my messages and even gave me some ideas and song selections for the day. She played beautifully! And my fiance loved it!!!
Natalie was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very well organized, responsive and more importantly an absolutely beautiful violinist. I’d have no hesitations booking again. Thank you Natalie!

Natalie helped make our event a success. She was involved in all of the pre-planning, even setting aside some of her time to do a walk through of our event space. Onsite, she and her trio were professional, organized, and put together a thoughtful set list for guests to enjoy.
Natalie was a pleasure to work with. A real professional! I would recommend her to anyone. Made my proposal that much more speacial. She was just incredible.
She was very professional on-time friendly music was amazing we loved every bit of it
Natalie was a wonderful violinist. She performed a few songs at my proposal in Central Park and it was absolutely beautiful. She was very respect full and able to work with my schedule. She was also able to set up and play with in five minutes which was unexpected due to the tight schedule that I had planned. I highly recommend her for any event!
I reached out to Natalie about playing a song i had in mind for my proposal to my gf. She was super responsive and super helpful. We scheduled a time to speak about all the details because she wanted to make sure everything was perfect. In the 2 days leading up to the proposal, I had to change the start time several times and she did her absolute best to accommodate.
I highly, highly recommend Natalie for anyone looking for a professional, caring and wonderful person to have as a part of any special event you are looking to have.
Natalie is an absolute pleasure to work with. She made me so comfortable with my surprise proposal in Central Park!
I didn't have to worry about anything she was early and played so beautifully!!!
I would recommend her for any occasion.
Very professional, on time, great musician.
Natalie was fantastic to work with from the moment I inquired about getting a violin player. Natalie performed three songs and each was beautiful! Her professionalism and coordination to make our meeting time was fantastic. I highly recommend Natalie!
We hired Natalie to play for our parent and first dance at our wedding. She went above and beyond to accommodate our crazy idea to do these dances in Central Park on a hot afternoon. She was extremely easy and professional to work with and made sure our day was exactly what we envisioned. Beyond that she played beautifully and it was the most memorable part of our day. We can't say enough good things about our experience.
I hired Natalie to play for me and my fiance as I proposed to her. Natalie had excellent communication throughout the planning process and she was kind enough to go out of her way to meet with me to do a dry-run prior to the day of my proposal. On the day of she did not disappoint, she played three wonderful songs that made our moment unforgettable! Her prices are more than fair and she is very accommodating. Thank you so much for everything Natalie you are AMAZING!!!
Natalie was super professional and made my proposal uber romantic! Considering i booked the whole event from over 20,000 miles away just tells you how amazing she was. Communication was top class, and she made the event unforgettable.
She even was so kind as to assist in taking the most amazing photographs afterwards.
Natalie made a special day even more special, and I could not endorse her enough!
Thanks a mill for everything, and hope to see you again in NYC soon!
I hired Natalie to play violin when I proposed to my girlfriend. She did a great job and really made the moment that much more special. She was also very helpful and accommodating. It was raining on and off that day and the proposal was outdoors in Central Park. She was quick on her feet in suggesting we move to a nearby underpass/tunnel in the park when it started to rain. That really saved the day!
This has been the second time I've used Natalie's services and from the bottom of my heart I have thank her. She first made my marriage proposal magical with her renditions of "Unthinkable" by Alicia Keys and John Legends "All of Me" which brought my fiancé to tears in the middle of Central Park. It was only right I used her for my wedding ceremony and she went above and beyond to provide an experience that's still being talked about by family and friends. She took the time to learn "Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" by Aerosmith. She was extremely patient with my last minute changes. When things were running late at the ceremony she was very patient and beautifully serenaded our guest. Everyone has been raving about how beautiful she played. In a stoke of genius she included the two songs I used to propose to my fiancé in her medley to tie together the significance of the two events. She is a consummate professional and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of her services. I can honestly say over this time Natalie has become much more than a hired musician, I'm honored to call her a true friend. Thank you for everything.
I appreciate Natalie as an expert violinist at our 20th Anniversary Celebration and Vow Renewal. I was extremely late to our ceremony due to a terrible wardrobe malfunction, and Natalie serenaded our guests with her impressive and extensive repertoire. She played beautifully for hours entertaining our guests, and we are extremely grateful for her impeccable service.
Natalie's ability to learn songs and perform them, even as it's a bit chilly out, was fantastic. She was on time and knew the 2 songs I requested perfectly. Her playing really added to the excitment of my proposing to my girlfriend, and her ability to make the moment magical really made it special. I'd definitely hire Natalie or refer Natalie to any one who needed a top class violinist to add to the atmosphere.
I planned a surprise marriage proposal with lots of moving parts and many things that required precise timing, and Natalie helped me pull the whole thing off without a hitch. She was readily available to speak with me and answer any of my questions, and even though she had other bookings, she made time to speak with me every day in the week leading up to the proposal to ensure that every detail was perfect. I even changed the time location 2 days before, and she had no qualms making the proper adjustments and arrangements with the other players. And best of all, Natalie and the other musicians played beautifully and the proposal was a huge success. Natalie Hall is a true professional and a wonderful musician. I highly recommend her services and would definitely book with her again.
This weekend I proposed to my girlfriend and I hired Natalie to play a couple of songs during the surprise moment. Natalie had no problem with the 2 songs I requested, and spent time with me on the telephone planning which parts of the song to play, how to play them, and we got all the details set up before the big day. On the day of the proposal she was on time, played exactly what I had asked, and charges a very fair fee. I would use Natalie again the next time I need a violinist and I would definitely recommend her to others looking to hire a soloist. Thank you Natalie!
Natalie is a consummate professional. She was prompt with correspondence and fair with her rates. She played two songs for my surprise wedding proposal and it was AMAZING. You won't find many that are easier to work with. I look forward to using her for future events.
I booked Natalie for a 1-hour private rooftop concert after I proposed to my girlfriend to celebrate our engagement. Natalie was extremely professional during the planning phase and worked with me to put together a list of the songs I wanted her to play. She then went well beyond expectation and was kind enough to learn a few extra songs specifically for the event that were meaningful to my girlfriend and I. Natalie was courteous and followed up before the event to confirm plans and showed up early to set up for the event. Her playing was spectacular and brought my now fiance to tears of joy. It was a magical event that we will cherish for the rest of our lives! I couldn't have pulled of the magical day without Natalie! Natalie's rate was also extremely reasonable compared to other quotes I received. I was extremely satisfied with her skill and everything about the process! I would 100% recommend her for anyone looking for a violinist
Natalie did an amazing job with our engagement in Central Park. Her playing to the proposal to a whole other level! She is also extremely helpful with finding locations, and crowd control beforehand. Could not have done it without her!
