This was not our first time that we have used Jennifer so we were not surprised that all went so well. She worked with us before the service to make sure she had all the details just right. She was here early to set up, brought a friend who played the cello and started the pre-service music right on time. She played all that we asked and watched me for cues. All in attendance said that it was the most beautiful wedding music that they had ever heard. If you want it to come off just right, be sure to give Jennifer a call. Thanks Jennifer, for another perfect event.

Jennifer was very professional and responsive to all of my emails leading up to the ceremony! She was very helpful with planning music selections. Her violin playing with absolutely beautiful and perfect for my outdoor ceremony. The only small issue I had with with the cellist. There were quite a few missed notes on her part that were obvious mistakes in the song. I would suggest just going with Jennifer and skipping the cello. Thanks!

Jennifer Johnson Wedding Violinist responded with the following comments:

Since I am a music educator, I can easily spot errors in performances. For the ceremony music selections, I can say with certainty that the cellist (who is also a professional musician and music educator) played the exact notes on the page.

The selections for this wedding were contemporary arrangements of popular songs. Some contemporary arrangements have the cello play the bass guitar part from the original recording. Other arrangements have the cello play the chord tones from the keyboard part. To sound just like the recordings, we would have needed to be a 5 piece rock band with vocalists or a 70 piece symphony orchestra! The discrepancy between what was heard as missed notes/mistakes in our musical arrangement and the original recordings was based on instrumentation. The arrangements for violin and cello are written to produce the fullest sound. I can assure you that the cellist did not miss any notes. She was filling in chord tones and bass lines as they were written in the arrangement (to cover as many parts from the original recording as possible).

Jennifer did a fabulous job at my wedding!!! However, what was particularly comforting was that Jennifer reached out to me one month before the ceremony to confirm everything and check in, as well as a week beforehand. A month away from the wedding (and of course, one week, as you can imagine) I was running around trying to contact vendors, arranging and rearranging, so it was more than pleasant to have Jennifer reach out and make sure everything was up to speed. As a bride, this is a LUXURY! Thank you for alleviating a bit of stress and for your help in making it such a special day!!
