I booked Athena Strings to play at my wedding ceremony. Lindy was great and helped me plan her performance, sent me CDs of suggested songs, and was very professional and friendly. Unfortunately, a few days before the wedding she had an emergency come up and was not able to play at the wedding. In the middle of her own emergency, Lindy arranged for another musician to cover for her and play at my ceremony. I was so appreciative of her thoughtfulness, and the musician she chose was excellent. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Lindy or hearing her play the songs I chose, I would recommend her to anyone!

Lindy was AMAZING!!! So happy she was able to play our prelude and ceremony music. She had a great selection for us to chose from and was even able to write and preform an additional piece we requested. (Married Life from the movie UP!) Lindy was on time and very professional. Our wedding party ended up being late to the ceremony but Lindy held it together and made the event seamless and I couldn't have been more thankful. The guests said the violin music was perfect for our outdoor wedding at Red River Gorge. Thank you Athena Strings for helping make our wedding day perfect!
