Melissa arrived in plenty of time for the scheduled event and did a wonderful job. We had several people comment on her playing ability and how beautiful it sounded. We were more than happy with her contribution to our daughter's wedding and would advise anyone to also have her at your event. Additionally she was a joy to work with both before, during, and after the event - very accomodating and timely responses to all communication.
