My lovely bride and I were fortunate enough to have found the talented and professional, cellist, Hope Easton on Gigmasters. Our wonderful Napa Valley wedding was made all the more special to our guests and us, by the addition of such a special performer. Hope's talent was matched by her ease and efficiency in our prior communications and her utmost concern and accommodating manner in dealing with my wishes to provide an added touch of beauty to our special day. An unforgettable performance and a lovely woman, whose talents, I hope to have the opportunity to enjoy again. Until such a day, our professionally filmed wedding video will have to suffice. Thanks Hope!
