Wendy and the other musicians from Effesenden were amazing and so talented. We hired Wendy and her group for our ceremony and cocktail hour. From the start, Wendy was very responsive and easy to work with. We told her what vibe we wanted, and she nailed it. The music was amazing and one of our favorite parts of the wedding. We made a few special music requests, including accompanying my cousin so he could sing during our unity candle lighting. They were very accommodating and everything turned out wonderfully. We received so many compliments on the live music from our guests. We couldn't be happier with choosing Effesenden and highly recommend them.

Wendy from Effesenden was delightful to work with. She was terrific at listening to our needs and guiding us with decisions while giving us a style of our own. Wendy was able to put together an excellent quartet for my daughters wedding with relatively short notice. One of the musicians was also a vocalist for a song during the ceremony and had a wonderful voice. The live music was a beautiful addition to our garden wedding and we couldn't be happier with the quality and professionalism of the quartet. Everything ran so smoothly! Thank-you Effesenden!

We hired Wendy and Effesenden for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I think they were my favorite detail of the ceremony. From the get-go, Wendy was knowledgeable and understood exactly what we were looking for. We wanted some Celtic music and she was so willing to take on our vision. Then for the cocktail hour, they switched to old Hollywood songs (like Frank Sinatra). It all seamlessly as our DJ took over for the reception. They executed it perfectly and it was beautiful. The musicians were so professional and talented. I just cannot say enough wonderful things about them!

Wendy and company are incredibly warm, organized, and responsive —and of course talented! Her and a guitarist played for our event and many of our guests, young and old, gave us glowing reviews of them. With just a few brief correspondences about the type of event we wanted, they nailed the tone and feel perfectly. They have a great repertoire, professional top notch skills, and are totally down to earth. I would highly recommend them and would hire them for all sorts of events.

Wendy and her quartet at Effesenden music added an extra special element to our wedding. A few times, they had me close to tears with your beautiful renditions of modern love songs. (i.e. Damien Rice "I can't take my eyes off of you") Guests came up to me at different parts of the wedding and the next day asking how I found them and how much they enjoyed hearing tunes they new and could swing or sing along.

Wendy and the musicians from Effesenden were stunning to work with. We lived quite a distance from Portland and Wendy was so kind to talk with us over the phone at length to truly get a feel for what our vision was. My husband's only request for the wedding was to have a string trio and Effesenden more than made that come true! They arranged some special pieces for us and I was even able to surprise my husband by walking down the aisle to a favorite song of ours.
Thanks so much to Wendy and Effesenden for making are beautiful wedding at the Resort at the Mountain in Welches Oregon even more breathtaking. Best, mike and cynthia

Efessenden did a wonderful job at our wedding! We had our ceremony in Hoyt Arboretum, precluding us from having any electricity or amplification. Luckily we had Efessenden and Wendy to provide some gorgeous acoustic music! Sadly I was running around prepping for the ceremony and did not hear as much as I wanted, but what I did catch was absolutely beautiful and set the tone perfectly. They had a huge repertoire and also learned a new song for us which was really special. They added so much to the ceremony. Wendy is very laid back and easy to work with and even offered advice and recommendations on ceremony timing, etc. Book them today!

Wendy Goodwin was very helpful and responsive during the planning and preparation for my daughter's wedding. Effesenden provided the music for both the wedding and reception - absolutely one of the best decisions we made for the event. The music was fabulous - including Wendy's vocals. We received many compliments. Effesenden would be at the top of my list if I were planning another wedding or event.
