FANTASTIC! Sharon was easily one of the best vendor's we hired for our wedding. She went above and beyond to ensure our ceremony music was perfect. Sharon visited our venue ahead of time, pro-actively reached out to several of our other vendors, and set up a meeting with our violinist to practice ahead of time. Sharon provided great feedback during our rehearsal practice, arrived early the day of, and played the piano to perfection. Sharon even sent us a personalized thank-you note after our wedding.

We had great feedback from guests on our ceremony music. Sharon's pricing is very reasonable. I highly recommend her!

We used Sharon as a pianist for our ceremony and our cocktail hour because she was recommended to us by the St.Paul Hotel. She was wonderful, very professional and was able to play a wide variety of music. She customized the music for our ceremony. Overall, she was very easy to work with and I would definitely recommend her to others.

I appreciate your kind words, Robin. I enjoyed getting to know you at our planning meeting and learning about the elegant atmosphere you wished to create with the music. Your request of 'Seasons of Love' from the musical 'Rent' was perfect for the Recessional. I wish both of you much happiness!

Sharon was such a pleasure to work with! Her responsiveness and professionalism was the best of all the vendors we worked with! She is extremely helpful and a beautiful pianist. She recommended music for our ceremony and also ran our rehearsal due to not having our officiant there. She made several other suggestions to help everything run smoothly and we were extremely happy with her. I recommend hiring Sharon for your wedding! You won't regret it!

Sharon was so wonderful to work with. She's very fast to respond, thorough, and asks great questions. She is so knowledgeable in her field and offered great suggestions on what pieces to include, and what pieces sound well to be played back to back. Her skill even made me tear up during our rehearsal! I also received nothing but wonderful compliments from our guests about her piano playing during the social hour. I would recommend Sharon to anyone!

Sharon,
We want to say THANK YOU!!!!!!! You and Mary Pat Nydahl did an amazing job, and the music and singing were beautiful together. We had many people comment that the music and singing brought tears to their eyes……joyful tears of course. The song Oceans was perfect for the sand pouring along with the other songs for the ceremony. We also appreciated all your help and input before the wedding and during the rehearsal. There are many things to think about and you helped bring those items to our attention and made sure everything was taken care of. It was a pleasure working with you and Mary Pat. Both of you helped make this a very special day for everyone to remember. Thanks again.

Hi Elizabeth,
I appreciated that even though you lived out-of-state, you managed to find an opportunity to meet with me in person to plan and select your music. It was fun getting to know a little more about you and your wedding! Thank you for your Tori Amos song requests. I enjoyed performing her beautiful music! I wish the two of you much happiness!
