Michelle was a delight to work with throughout the entire process. She performed for my daughter's wedding, and I feel so fortunate to have found her. Michelle was very prompt to respond to any inquiries and communications. Her repertoire is vast, with so many types of music available. She was always thoughtful, considerate and accommodating. I could never have found anyone better. Michelle played such lovely music that set a wonderful atmosphere. If I had another event, I would run...not walk...to get Michelle to play for me. She was one of the best choices I made in planning the wedding.

Michelle was easy to get in touch with and to work with. Having a violinist at our wedding ceremony was beautiful and unique! Being in the Old Christ Church in Pensacola, the tune echoed beautifully throughout the building.

Coming from out of state, Michelle Adams came highy recommended by my wedding planner. The week of the wedding there was a threat of a hurricane and the ceremony was going to be a beach wedding. We had to move the wedding from 5pm to 2pm. Michelle was flexible and accomadated the change. Her music was beautiful and really added that special touch to the ceremony. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone who wants that little extra special touch to their event. Most of all, my daughter was thrilled to walk down the sandy isle to Michells music!!!

Michelle is an amazing violinist and was a pleasure to have at our wedding. Would've paid extra to have her play at our reception if I had even thought of that at the time. We had our ceremony on the beach and were able to hear it nicely with the amplifier. Thank you Michelle!

Michelle did a wonderful job playing the ceremony music! Michelle was very helpful in selecting music and always very prompt in her communications. At the last minute, we had to do the ceremony inside due to rain and a few other changes occurred, but it did not phase her. The music was perfectly on cue and beautiful! Thanks for a wonderful wedding ceremony!

We were beyond pleased with the quality of Sand and Strings. The music was beautiful and fit perfectly with the day. I was very pleased at the organization of song selections, as I thought that would be something overwhelming for me. It was very easy to choose from the selections in the contract. The timing of the songs was perfect and we are still receiving compliments 3 months later on how wonderful the music was that day. Somehow my dad did not know we were going to have a violinist, and he still says that was one of his favorite details of the day. I would highly, highly recommend Sand and Strings.

Michelle was wonderful and very talented. She helped me with my music choices and made a beautiful addition to my wedding. It was perfect! Because I was an out of town bride everything was done over email so that made me a little nervous, but in the end I had nothing to be nervous about. Everything went perfect and I was so happy to actually meet her on my wedding day. Thank you Michelle for everything!

Michelle was amazing, We weren't able to find the sheet music that I wanted to walk down the aisle to, so she listens to the track and wrote the music herself! Absolutely Amazing, my only regret is I didn't get to spend more time after the wedding getting to know her. You will not be disappointed with her, I really can't say enough.

Michelle was amazing. With all the stress of planning a wedding, it was so nice to hear the beautiful sound of her violin playing on the beach right before walking down the aisle to see my groom. She was very independent. She set up on the beach and began playing even before the guest started to arrive, I can not say enough nice things about Michelle. Thank you so much for creating the intimate, romantic setting we wanted for our wedding day!

Michelle was absolutely amazing! When I pictured my ceremony, the one thing I always wanted was a violinist. Michelle certainly exceeded my expectations! She truly has a God given talent and plays from her heart and you can tell how very passionate she is about her music. It is such a wonderful memory to have...the brief moment my dad and I shared standing at the top of the boardwalk before walking down the steps to the aisle in the sand and taking in all of the emotions of the day while Michelle's peaceful music played softly in the background. It was one of the best moments of my life and something I will always remember. Thank you, Michelle, for helping to create the special memory for me!

Oh my goodness, I could go on for days and days as to how much I loved Michelle Adams (Sand & Strings)!!! I don't think there is a sweeter, more graceful, amazingly talented violinist on the Eastern Seaboard. Michelle put our minds at ease from the moment we met her. Whether you know exactly what you want or need some help choosing your processional, recessional, and more, Michelle will guide you through every step of the process and hand tailor a musical backdrop just perfect for you and your husband-to-be. The second the chapel doors open and I heard the melodic sounds of Bryan Adam's "Everything I do" wafting through the air, I couldn't wait to hit the altar and say, "I do!" You will be so glad you chose Michelle!

Michelle was WONDERFUL! She was completely the icing of our ceremony! Her beautiful music added just what we needed/wanted to make our ceremony that much more! She played all songs through & transitioned really nicely, she created a nice flow in between songs. She also dressed very professional. Michelle was one of the only vendors that wasn't adding stress to my planning. Wouldn't have picked anyone else to play music for our special day at our ceremony!

Michelle, with Sand and Strings, was AMAZING!!!! She was always very quick with her responses to my emails and phone calls. I was prepared with a set list for the ceremony, which she was able to accommodate. However, when I suggested a song for the unity/sand table portion, she was very honest with me and had other suggestions which worked out beautifully. I love classical music and was very leary as to how the violin would sound solo, sans the other string instruments. But, I can honestly say that the music was absolutely gorgeous and truly helped to complete a beautiful wedding picture on the beach!!!! I would highly recommend her business to anyone. Her prices were EXTREMELY reasonable as well.
