Brooksley is incredible to work with. She was extremely quick to respond to all of my (many) emails prior to the wedding to work out all small details. She even provided me with many song recommendations/songs that she typically plays in wedding ceremonies! Brooksley accepted all song requests and played BEAUTIFULLY at my wedding ceremony. I truly feel that our wedding ceremony was perfect because of hiring Brooksley. Seriously, you will be SO happy that you hired her! -Megan

Brooksley played for us at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. She had so many songs to chose from on her playlist and I requested one not on her playlist that she said she could play no problem. She was very responsive to all of my emails and easy to work with. She even made sure to come say goodbye and congrats to me and my groom when she left. Would highly recommend her for anyone. Reasonably priced and great quality!
