For a group that was only set to play for about an hour for our wedding ceremony, they worked with us as if they were the most important aspect of our wedding - which is a good thing. They were extremely receptive to our needs and wants, very communicative on what they needed in order to do a perfect job for us, quick to respond, and extremely accommodating. Our music requests for our processional and recessional were very detailed - down to the minute/second where we wanted entrances, cuts, etc etc and they handled it all flawlessly. They even let us know on that day to just do whatever we felt and they would follow our lead musically. Would recommend to anyone!

We had an outdoor morning wedding combining Jewish and Irish cultures. Ptarmigan navigated these waters beautiful even buying sheet music for an obscure melody my Irish mother requested to hear. They were so diligent and conscientious, ensuring that details were not overlooked. The wedding couple was out of state and so it was the parents in-state that had to attend to alot of details. With the assistance of Vicky at Ptarmigan, no detail was overlooked. The repetoire was vast and yet perfect for our setting and the reception later. It is clear they love their work and know how important it is to making a wedding day memorable and special for all. thank you!!!

From the very beginning when we contacted Vicki at Ptarmigan till the last note was played we were so pleased with the professionalism and overall experience. We had ideas of what type of music we wanted and a song they didn't even play. The group was so accommodating, learned our song and played a unique array of modern classic rock tunes for our wedding ceremony. Vicki managed the process like a pro, they looked awesome in the outdoor (Della Terra) venue and sounded amazing throughout. I can't recommend this group enough. Every aspect of our experience was smooth and worry free. Thanks a ton for making it a wonderful night!
