We hired Elana for our wedding and 2 weeks later our guests are still raving about her. We held a traditional wedding that included a traditional entrance song that we asked Elana to play along with. She did an amazing job learning the notes and creating her own rendition of the traditional song. It went beautifully with the traditional version and made for the most amazing entrance. Elana also played for our cocktail hour and our guests absolutely loved her. They said her playing brought a sense of class and elegance to the entire event. Book Elana for your next event. She is well worth it and will help make lasting memories!

Elana was terrific to deal with, from the outset communications were easy and she was very responsive. She provided a lengthy list of songs of which she was proficient and from this list we were able to compile our wedding selections. We also asked her for a special request for the recessional in which she would play along with pre-recorded music and our singer, and she graciously accepted the challenge and carried it out beautifully. Our guests commented on her talents, which was nice.

Perfect! What more can I say. Elana has a talent that will blow you away. She played beautiful contemporary music for us throughout our ceremony, as we didn't like any of the traditional songs you might often hear, and it was beyond beautiful.

I needed a musician for my ceremony- someone that would play an instrument for 15 minutes- the quotes i got from other people were ridiculous. Elana quoted me the best price and I chose to go with her. She worked out just fine and my guests thought she did a great job.

I am a musician who needed a violinist to perform at a wedding ceremony I was engaged to play. I hired Elana sight unseen. Elana arrived early, came prepared and played beautifully with a clear, powerful, rich tone. The bride and groom were very pleased and so was I. I would definitely hire her again.

Elana was a pleasure to work with. We played a set of light classical pieces for a wedding ceremony and certainly enhanced the sound of the guitar, piano and violin trio. The guests at the wedding gave us many compliments and it was enjoyed by all.

I look forward to working with Elana again.

A week before our wedding we decided to hire someone to play for the small ceremony we were having with our immediate family in New York City. Within minutes of contacting Elena via email, we were talking on the phone and planning the arrangements for our big day. Elena was very easy to work with and professional. She offers an extensive list with a variety of songs, both traditional and modern. Elena was a pleasure to work with and really helped set the mood for our ceremony. Even our guests commented on how beautifully she played and what a nice touch it was to have her play at the ceremony. I will definitely use her services again in the future!

In our experience, Elana was extremely professional and accomodating. She was happy to learn a few songs that we requested, and had some great input on putting together a wedding playlist. Most importantly, her playing was beautiful and added the perect accent to our wedding. We highly recommend Elana.

Getting Elana to play at my wedding ceremony was one of the best and easiest choices I made in the wedding planning process.

My husband and I had a lot of difficulty finding a musician for our ceremony at the Central Park Conservatory Garden. Many of the places I contacted either never responded or ended up playing phone tag with me. With just weeks before the ceremony, I was pretty pessimistic by the time I reached out to Elana.

She turned out to be a great find. She got back to me that same day and was really friendly. I loved Elana’s quick response time to any questions I had along the way.

When it came to the day of the wedding, I started freaking out like many other brides. My limo was an hour late and traffic was bad in the city that day. I was afraid Elana might not show or would be late, considering the trouble I had going up there. She arrived early to set up..

It was a beautiful ceremony. Everyone loved her music, and she put the finishing touch when she played “Save the Best for Last” when I walked down the aisle. And when the ceremony was done, she stayed around to wish me congratulations.

Elana is great. My husband and I are very happy with the whole experience and I definitely recommend brides to reach out to her.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Elana for our wedding ceremony. As we all know planning all the aspects of a wedding can be difficult, but Elana made it so easy to work with her. She was extremely professional and flexible. I knew that I didn't have anything to worry about when it came to the ceremony music. She followed up with me and made sure everything was set up and that I was clear on the songs that would be played.

She let us chose any song we could think of and she was willing to learn it to make our special day even more personal and memorable. Elana had great suggestions as well as to what music works best for the different parts of the ceremony.

Not only is she extremely professional and personal she really is an extremely talented musician. The music on her website is only a sample of how amazing she is. It truly was a pleasure and I would recommend her to anyone.

Perfect. Elana is a beautiful young lady, dressed appropriately, played everything we asked for perfectly with a gracious and accomodating manner and with a beautiful smile. I don't have a single complaint nor could ask for anything more. I would definitely recommend her without any reservations. All of my guests were very impressed. She was a complete hit and having a violinist of her caliber at my wedding was exactly the extra touch of class I wanted. VERY VERY HAPPY.

Breathtaking! Elana' musical selections and talent helped to make our big day just beautiful! I would certainly recommend her services to anyone who wants an air of elegance and attention to detail to be visible on your special day. Our wedding was 2 months ago, yet, guests are still commenting on the talented violinist! For the level of professionalism and talent you can't ask for more! I must mention she was also immaculately dressed for the occasion!

Elana was great. All we had to do was tell her what music we wanted to hear. She showed up at the ceremony and simply set up and started playing exactly what we wanted. She played beautifully and everybody commented on what a nice touch it was to have live music.
