I play live solo violin music or live solo violin music with electronic accompaniment! Having live violin music at your wedding, cocktail hour, reception or special event brings a uniqueness and intimacy pre-recorded music just can't match. I have been playing at hundreds of events both as a solo violinist and in a string quartet. My experiences give me insight in working with brides and grooms to make the music on their special day just what they want!
I can’t say enough how fantastic having a violinist at the ceremony was. Theresa was amazing to work with, professional, and fun. I highly recommend her to play at your ceremony/reception.
Response from Wedding Violinist:
Thanks so much, Heather!!! It was a beautiful wedding, and I was so honored to work with you both and be a part of your day!! 😍
We will contact her again!
Theresa played at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. She was amazing and we had so many compliments from our guests on how good she was. If you are looking for a violinist, book Theresa!!
We received many compliments for our outdoor ceremony because of the violin music! Theresa even played through some rain that was right before the ceremony. I would highly recommend!
Hired her as violinist for our wedding and she DID NOT disappoint!! Highly recommend!!!
Response from Wedding Violinist:
Thanks so much, Anne! I so enjoyed working with you!!
Theresa is outstanding. Her violin skills are incredible, but what really sets her apart is her communication and planning. She asked all the right questions leading up to the event. Having her there playing music created an atmosphere that made my proposal even better than I could have ever imagined.
I would highly recommend Theresa to anyone looking to book a violinist for any type of event.
Theresa played beautiful violin music for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding. She was very professional and flexible in meeting with us to discuss song choices. We even arranged a little face time session.
She played music for the prelude, attendant/ bridal processional, and recessional. If you are lucky enough to have her play for your event, you will not be disappointed!! We had so many people after the ceremony tell us how they really enjoyed listening to Theresa play her violin. We are very thankful that she was able to come to our small town and church to play for our family event. Theresa, we cannot thank you enough...you made the day very special!!!
Theresa did a wonderful job at my sons wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Had so many compliments on her playing. Would definitely recommend.
Theresa was amazing, she made my wedding ceremony feel so romantic and magical. Despite the wedding having to be moved to the covered deck because of the rain, it was above and beyond better than I could have ever imagined. Thank you Theresa!
Theresa did an amazing job for my wedding. She made it extra magical and romantic. I will definitely recommend for your ceremony.
Theresa did a great job working with us to create the perfect atmosphere for our ceremony. She made suggestions but was also happy to play whatever we requested. She is so talented and we were so happy to find her!
Response from Wedding Violinist:
Thank you so much Kate! It was an honor to be a part of your ceremony - incredibly heartfelt and touching! You and Matthew and your kids have an amazing life ahead of you!!! ❤️
Price Range: $350 and up
Gig Length: 50 - 70 minutes
What to Expect
Depending on what the bride and groom want, besides playing during the wedding, Theresa will start playing 30 minutes prior to the start of the wedding, so guests can enjoy beautiful violin music while waiting for the wedding to start. After the recessional, Theresa will also play until all guests have left the ceremony area.
Theresa has been playing weddings and other special event gigs since 1993. She has played hundreds of events throughout the years, both as a solo violin player and in a quartet. This experience gives Theresa insight in working with brides and grooms to make the music on their special day personal, unique and easy!
In order to make the wedding day run as smoothly as possible, Theresa likes to meet with the bride and groom to discuss the songs the bride and groom would like played on their big day. No clue what music you want played? No problem! From classical to pop to the oldies, Theresa will work with you to craft a song list for each stage of your wedding, from processional to recessional.
