Jess made our wedding day truly special. From the very start she contacted us immediately and was always prompt with her emails. We had to arrange this from out of town and she made the process very simple. She played beautifully all of the requested numbers for the ceremony and even made an arrangement for a special request at no additionall cost. Jess was playing her cello in the park (she had arrived early) when we arrived and followed the copy of the ceremony we had provided perfectly with no rehersal. Her music made our day special and her professionalism was one less thing we had to worry about. I would highly recommend her for your special day.

Jess was amazing. From my first communication with her, she was ready to put together ceremony music that was perfect for the occasion. She played all of our music with the cello and flute hand-in-hand beautifully creating sound for our perfect day. When I walked down the "aisle" in the field, and heard her play, my eyes teared up. She made our day unique and incredibly accented. I would recommend her over and over again! If only I could have my wedding day all over again!!! Thank you JESS!!!!

Jess is a lovely person--very professional and attractive. She was punctual and dressed appropriately for a wedding. Jess's music was well-performed, and the sound of her cello was perfect! We would not hesitate to hire her again for another event. Thank you, Jess!
