Wedding Cocktail Hour in Westbrook, CT on 07/16/2011
"Jennifer is an extremely talented musician! We enjoyed having her."
- Carole S.
Wedding Ceremony in Brooklyn, NY on 06/18/2011
"We hired Jennifer to play the cello at our wedding on 6/18/11. As I waited to walk down the aisle, I heard her beautiful music floating out through the church doors. It was one of the moments that will stay with me forever.
Jennifer was extremely easy to work with. She responded to our requests quickly. She was happy to suggest specific pieces for us, and played a 3 minute interlude during our ceremony in addition to the processional and recessional music. I would whole-heartedly recommend her to any friend or family member getting married in New York.
Jennifer, thank you for helping to make our wedding even more special!"
- Amy T.
Wedding Ceremony in New York City, NY on 11/05/2011
"Jen did an amazing job! Down to the final moments that we were working out some of the smaller details, Jen offered up suggestions and showed that she really understood the importance of the moment for us. If you ever need a cellist on a somewhat chilly day in Central Park, Jen is the one to call!"
- Jonathan S.
Wedding Ceremony in Mineola, NY on 12/05/2010
"Jennifer was very pleasant to work with. She was very accommodating when I requested her to send me samples of her work. Although I did not get to interact with her nor got to meet her in person (which was unfortunate), she played beautifully during the ceremony. I am the bride and was constantly being pulled away by family, guests and the photographers. Jennifer and I worked on my wedding music and did the contracts all by email, which made everything convenient and simple. She is very professional and punctual, a big plus on my book!"
- Elizabeth N.

She helped make my wedding ceremony extra special.

I would HIGHLY recommend her!!!"
- Mimi H.

"I had the good fortune of meeting Jennifer Girone here on Gigmasters, and she and a colleague (on the violin) performed at my sister's wedding. Jennifer was absolutely fantastic to work with. She was easy to contact, the sample clips provided on her website accurately represented her musical talents, and she was particularly helpful in working with my sister to organize and plan the pre-wedding, processional, and recessional music down to the smallest detail. On the day of the wedding, she arrived with plenty of time to spare and delivered a great performance that really made the day extra special. My sister and I highly recommend her services, with no reservations!"
