Kind Words



“Damon, Laura, and Jared really made my wedding spectacular! When I heard Damon play at my consultation, I immediately knew he had to be a part of my ceremony. He is so talented! Laura played Pachelbel Canon beautifully, and Jared’s fanfare before I walked down the aisle made me feel like a princess. I highly recommend Athens Wedding Music!“ -Courtney, Athens First United Methodist Church





"Working with Laura was a pleasure from start to finish! We met with her to select music and got our own little concert. At the wedding, I could hear our guests coming in with the violin in the background. It was exactly as I had imagined! She played beautifully and accompanied my friend, who sang during our ceremony. Laura is an amazing violinist and fun to work with!” -April, Hardeman-Sams House





"I was not emotional on my wedding day until I heard Damon on the piano! He is an incredible pianist and makes even the prettiest of songs inexplicably more beautiful. People are still talking about the gorgeous music at my wedding!" -Amanda, Private Residence





“Laura, we loved your music and our wedding absolutely wouldn’t have been the same without you! I had some special requests and you made sure every detail was perfect. Thank you so much for being part of our ceremony!” -Carrie, Georgia Botanical Gardens Day Chapel Read less

Laura is a wonderful violinist and made my son's wedding very special. She worked with him and his bride to provide the music they wanted and learned new pieces that they selected. She was very professional and agreed to travel 2 hours each way to reach the wedding venue. I strongly recommend her to anyone needing a violinist.

Rich and I had a dear friend of ours, a guitarist, planned for our wedding, but found out 3 weeks before the big day that he had double-booked himself. I was close to tears and reached out to some friends on Facebook. My friend who lived in Alaska told me about Laura, and she was only a few miles from me! I looked at the site, and I thought the music was beautiful, but I was unsure about a violin, and our budget was tight. Then.... Rich and I met Laura at her studio, and she played a few things for us. I fell in love with the sound, her gentle spirit, and I immediately thanked God for creating a situation that I had to make a change.

Rich and I had a beautiful Friday evening ceremony - casual, yet romantic, and filled with kids and blended families. Laura's musical contribution made our wedding magical. So many of our guests commented on how lovely the music was and how it fit us "just right".

I can't imagine our most special day without Laura, and I highly recommend her!

I can't recommend Laura more. I decided fairly "last-minute" to have a musician play at our wedding and she was flexible, encouraging, and enthusiastic. Despite all this, she didn't push me to rush and make music selections and was thoughtful in her suggestions about what would make sense for OUR ceremony.

Having a solo violin was truly beautiful. Laura's playing is superb. I think she "wowed" quite a few people attending the wedding. I know my mother, who likes her music :) , was talking about her weeks afterward about how impressed she was!

Without a doubt, she was one of my favorite participants in the wedding. If you have any qualms....don't. She's a true professional who is interested in making the day right for you. I am so very glad we had her celebrate and share our wedding.

Laura Boyd and Damon Denton, of Athens Wedding Music are professional and talented musicians, who tailor the music to fit the needs of your ceremony. The combination of the piano with violin is beautiful and inspiring. We were very satisfied with them and highly recommend considering using them for your special day.
