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!!

Jennifer Johnson is such a fantastic musician! Even though I wasn't able to hear her play during our ceremony (as the Bride), we have heard so many positive things from our guests about how relaxing, classic, and elegant our ceremony was because of Jennifer's violin playing as well as her partner's cello playing. We chose the duo package as we wanted things to be very elegant but still casual for our outdoor wedding. We were not disappointed! Jennifer was there the entire to help me select the right pieces of music and she even incorporated some of my all-time favorite ballad musical numbers into our ceremony prelude/music. Such a joy to work with and she is also very affordable. I would highly recommend her to another bride that's looking for just a little bit of that elegant touch to their ceremony without being too much!

Jennifer was wonderful to work with from the start. She responded quickly to my emails and was very organized. She had great suggestions for songs to play during the ceremony and the music was just amazing. It added so much to our garden ceremony. She was very professional and her price was reasonable compared to other quartets, etc. I was looking up online. I opted for the violin/cello quartet which Jennifer arranged for us. I would definitely recommend her services!

We highly recommend Jennifer. She provided the ceremony music for our son's wedding in a natural, rustic setting in the middle of a National Forest Park. She was prompt and professional in our internet discussions back and forth. She was very helpful in offering musical suggestions, has a wide repertoire to choose from, and offered to learn any specially-requested musical selections. Once we signed the contract with her to perform, we knew that we didn't have to worry about the ceremony music. (One less worry before a wedding is a big thing!) To sum it up, she is a lovely person and very easy to work with. The violin was the only music and her music was stunningly perfect.

Ms. Johnson was maybe the best vendor we dealt with for our wedding. She drove in from Richmond, learned a couple special requests, and played so beautifully multiple guests made comments. We considered hiring a local trio or quartet, but after seeing Jennifer's site and corresponding with her we made our decision and don't regret a thing. If I had an unlimited budget I'd still use her the next time I get married.
