We hired Jennifer to play at our ceremony and cocktail hour in a trio of cello, viola, and flute. Jennifer coordinated the other two musicians and worked with us to plan all of the music choices.

Jennifer was a true joy to work with and one of my favorite vendors - a shining star in the wedding industry!

Quality of Service: Jennifer and her fellow musicians were very talented. Guests enjoyed the music - we received compliments on the mix of classical and contemporary songs.

Responsiveness: Jennifer was always prompt, thorough, and pleasant in responding to emails. She was also very responsive to our special requests- we wanted a particular Aerosmith song played and she found the sheet music. I asked her to record some of their ceremony performance and she did. We even asked her to bring a music stand for our officiant to borrow and she was willing to do this. She went above and beyond in so many ways.

Professionalism: Absolutely one of the most professional vendors we used. She is incredibly organized and provided great info every step of the way to help us with our decisions - from thinking through various musician combinations to providing song options with links to youtube clips. Choosing the music was one of my favorite wedding planning activities!

Value: Very reasonable rates.

Flexibility: Ceremony time ran longer than planned so musicians played overtime; she asked for our go-ahead to continue playing, we said yes, and they did - everything was smooth and easy.

Overall: A+ vendor!! Easy to work with, did a perfect job, great value, and really nice person. Would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a wedding musician or group of musicians! She is a true gem and joy to work with. I've already recommended her to all of my friends getting married around NYC in the next year. I'm hoping someone will book her so I can hear her play again!

For our wedding, my wife and I really wanted to have a classical performance for our ceremony and cocktail hour. We spent several weeks researching artists and different combinations of instruments. As part of this we knew we definitely wanted the cello and that is how we found Jennifer. She was highly recommended on the local NY sites and when we heard a sample of her music on her website (www.jennifergirone.com), we knew she was the the perfect fit for us.
Jennifer was very responsive to us from our initial request for information all the way up to the week of the wedding. She met us in the local NY area to sit down and discuss our initial thoughts and ideas. At this point, we knew we wanted to have a duo, but were still undecided on the combination of Cello/Flute or Cello/Violin. Jennifer gave us specific examples of music that went well with both options, which definitely made it easier to help us decide based on our choices from the music selections she provided us. We decided on the Cello/Violin. From that point, we narrowed our music for the processional, recessional, and the songs we preferred during the cocktail hour. The number of songs selections from classic to modern was the toughest part of our decision process.
After the ceremony and cocktail hour, our guests raved about Jennifer and her partner. We could not have been happier with any other performer for our wedding.
Jennifer is OUTSTANDING and we would recommend her to anyone.

Jennifer is a skilled musician and made our wedding ceremony come alive with beautiful sound.
She provided options for the music for our ceremony, but was also open to my suggestions and special requests. We corresponded entirely over email, finalizing the contract and payment before the date of my wedding. Because my husband and I got married in Central Park, there were many questions regarding possible cancellations (if it rained) and other possible distractions. Jennifer answered all of our questions and was friendly throughout the process, thanking me personally at the end for being part of a beautiful wedding.

We worked with Jennifer for our June 2012 wedding and she was unbelievable. As we definitely wanted a solo cello for the big day, she was one of the first vendors we contacted. We found her to be extremely easy to work with, communicative, and a talented musician. She has a large repertoire of music and assisted us in selecting pieces for before, during and after the ceremony. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early and was ready to perform on time. She helped set a beautiful scene for our garden wedding and we loved listening to her play. My only regret is not getting to listen to her more!

Jennifer is fantastic! She recently played at my wedding in Central Park and it could not have been any better. I had a surprise singer show up at the ceremony to sing a song we love and I asked Jennifer to work with him and accompany the song with her cello. It was by far my favorite part of the ceremony. She coordinated everything with the singer and made it seem effortless. Her communication was great. I highly recommend her!

Jennifer was excellent to work with. she was so responsive and provided me with so much information and guidance as I was planning my ceremony. I chose her as a solo celloist. She played beautifully fluidly with passion. My guests loved that she played through the coctail hour. She gave us a song list of 150 songs to choose from so it was easy to give her our play and do not play list from it. She was punctual and a pleasure to work with. I would use her again for an event. Beautiful music.

Although I did not get to interact with her nor got to meet her in person (which was unfortunate), she played beautifully during the ceremony. I am the bride and was constantly being pulled away by family, guests and the photographers.

I cannot say enough about Jennifer and her service. She was so helpful right from the beginning. She gave me song options and her professional advice when trying to select music for our ceremony. The day of our wedding was the day of the NYC Marathon and she reassured me that it would not delay her getting to the church & she was right. The music she provided was amazing. Walking down the aisle to her music was perfect & just how I imagined. I received so many compliments on the ceremony music and was so glad I found her to play. The best part was when we had a song played in the middle of our ceremony and was able to just take it all in. I had goosebumps the whole time. Thank you again Jennifer for everything! You made sure my ceremony music was the one thing I did not have to worry about that day.

Jennifer was very sweet and professional every time we spoke prior to my wedding day. She was there and ready when she needed to be. I wished I had been able to enjoy more of her music, I was really looking forward to it but instead I was hidden away in my bridal suite prior to the ceremony while I had her play for my guests pre-ceremony. I didn't get to hear the songs I had her play for them, but heard some of the actual ceremony music once it started, and I know my guests enjoyed it. I was glad I hired her as a duet with an additional person playing violin and enjoyed what I did get to hear in the whirlwind of my wedding ceremony.

I didn't get to hear the songs I had her play for them, but heard some of the actual ceremony music once it started, and I know my guests enjoyed it. I was glad I hired her as a duet with an additional person playing violin and enjoyed what I did get to hear in the whirlwind of my wedding ceremony. Read less

Jennifer Girone is an incredible artist. Her exceptional performance during my wedding ceremony had all of my family and friends completely entertained. They are still talking about our ceremony and it was almost a year ago. She is very attentive and extremely professional. My husband I have recommended her to our family and friends. Our ceremony was romantic, engaging, traditional with a modern twist and I can honestly say that having Ms. Girone perform was one of the best choices my husband and I made throughout our wedding process.

Jennifer was a pleasure to deal with in every way. She gave us lots of suggestions for classical pieces to be played before and during the ceremony and sent audio links so we could hear a sample of each one. I recommend Jennifer without any hesitation. You will be very, very happy that you hired her for your ceremony!

- I just wish this part of the day could have lasted longer. I hired Jennifer, who is a cellist, for a trio and she and her fellow musicians were just great. We mixed classical, popular/modern, and Jewish pieces and it was wonderful; every piece sounded perfect and exactly as I had hoped/desired. I hope to be able to need music again in the future - I'd contract for the services again in a heartbeat.

Jennifer provided us with amazing solo cello music for our cocktail hour. Everyone thought it was so classy.
Jennifer was very easy to communicate with as far as arranging what we wanted, she provided music selections for us to pick from,samples to hear, and provided what we wanted as additional requests.
She arrived on time, looked beautiful, and was very warm and amiable. Her playing was exquisite, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who enjoys something unique for their special affair. Jennifer played all my favorite pieces with skill and passion. Some pieces were soulful and moody, some were lively, it was all great!! Everything I wanted. Everyone loved it. If I ever have the occasion to hire a cellist again, it would always be Jennifer Girone. I wish her success.

Everyone complemented our music selection and how great the quartet performed. They made our wedding truly unique and about us. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

The music that Jennifer provided for our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Not only did her music enhance the ambiance at our ceremony, Jennifer helped me prior to the event by assisting me in choosing selections that were not only beautiful but uniquely suited to fit my husband and my dreams for our wedding ceremony. Following the ceremony many of my guests asked where we found Jennifer and commented on how her music added a special element to the day’s events. I can’t speak highly enough about her professionalism and talent. If you’re looking to add elegance, class, and beauty to your wedding or any special event I would recommend booking Jennifer.
