The Happy Couple Duo went above and beyond to make our inaugural fund raising event a celebrated success. A one stop solution for lighting design, live music, dj and ceremony soundtrack. Creative, professional, fun and responsive; what more could we ask for?? I am sure they are great for weddings but talk to them about how they could make your event spectacular! Thanks for making YorkArts look so good!

Katy and Zach are the entire package - you could not ask for more!!! They did the live music, DJ and lighting for my daughter and son-in-laws destination wedding and they were absolutely amazing! We were able to get to know them over their 4-day stay with us and everyone agreed - "we love these people". They are very talented musicians and I think that flows into everything else they do! They have a lot of fun with their work but are super professional an so organized. The ceremony music was beautiful, they kept the party going, did a great job with their emcee responsibilities and the lighting really took the reception atmosphere over the top! They will be part of my son's wedding next year and I would recommend them for any type of event!!

Where to start in describing the talent that Katy & Zach have? They provided violin/viola music for our ceremony, cocktail hour music and then flawlessly transitioned to their dj & lighting services for our reception.

We had a slightly stressful hiccup in moving our outdoor plans inside due to the rain at the last minute but the only thing I did not have to fret about was the music. There is no doubt that Katy and Zach know what they are doing!

The detail they took in making a custom lighting graphic to match our wedding colors was amazing. From the start of the reception to us kicking people out, the dance floor was PACKED!

Katy & Zach were patient and so helpful in helping is select what type music we wanted and gave suggestions on areas we were clueless on. They were prompt, accommodating and you really feel like your event is their main priority.

I'm now looking for another reason to hire them for another event! If you are still searching for music, for whatever your event may be, stop!

The Happy Couple Duo are professional, friendly, and talented. Very helpful in easing my anxiety during the planning process in making music selections. We even met in person prior to the wedding at a location convenient to us. They played string music before and during our wedding ceremony which was beautiful. They also DJ'd our reception which was wonderfully fun. Our guests loved them and we can't recommend them highly enough.

If you are in the midst of planning your wedding, or looking for musicians or a DJ, you must contact the Happy Couple Duo ASAP, because their performance, attention to detail, and genuinely friendly dispositions will help make your wedding day perfect. On top of that, as your wedding planning stresses add up, you can be rest assured that the music and DJ areas are in good hands, with plenty of flexibility for changes along the way.

I was so happy when I found the Duo, checked out their website, and talked to them on the phone. They agreed to learn a new song for our ceremony, and they found a horn player to accompany them. All this, for an unbeatable price. Katy and Zach were great at communication, always promptly returning calls and emails, and checking in every so often. They had a lot of music to choose from for the live performances, and seemed to have an unlimited catalog for DJ'ing at the reception. They also took requests from the dancing crowd. Their lighting was beautiful.

We are so happy they were a part of our wedding day, and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a musician or DJ.

This couple has some serious talent. I never even thought of finding a DJ that could also play string instruments before I came across these guys. In lieu of the wedding march for my ceremony, they specially arranged the Imperial March transitioned into A Whole New World at my request. This was the perfect blend of lightheartedness and whimsy that I wanted to bring into the wedding, and they pulled it off beautifully.

Not only are these two extremely talented musicians, they also possess professionalism to a degree that I wish I could have experienced with my other vendors for the wedding. My caterer had offered to contact everyone involved with the wedding - florist, cake baker, bartender, dj, etc - so at her insistence, I coordinated the entire reception through her. As it turns out, after speaking to Katy right before the wedding party was set to be introduced, the caterer had never once spoken to the "happy couple." After getting over the initial shock, I quickly ran through some of what I had planned and told Katy and Zach to run with it. They did an amazing job. They handled what could have turned out terribly into a beautiful reception that appeared to go off without a hitch. I will be forever thankful that Katy and Zach are both so talented, a pleasure to work with, and really able to roll with the punches. On top of everything else, they just seem like really great people. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Thanks again for everything!

The Happy Couple Duo is such a pleasure to work with. They are so well organized, both in their preparation as well as on the day of the wedding. As violinists during the ceremony, they were amazing. As DJs at the reception, they knew exactly how to get the party going. My wife is Hispanic and loves salsa music. The HCD actually studied Spanish language pop charts and worked with her to get a great playlist together. We would highly recommend them to anyone!

Katy and Zach,
I am the mother of the bride and I just wanted to thank you for your participation in Emily and Nate's ceremony and wedding celebration. You exceeded my expectations in every way and the video you sent was wonderful and is certainly a reflection of the fun that you helped create. The lighting, music choices, and of course, your beautiful performance during the ceremony and cocktail hour made it all so special. We wish you well in all of your future endeavors and thank you again for being such a wonderful part of our celebration. The evening is something that I will remember forever.

The Happy Couple Duo exceeded our expectations! They were very patient and helpful during our rehearsal as we waited for essential people to show up on time. Everyone loved their beautiful string music during our ceremony and cocktail hour, and their DJ services were excellent at well! They even had decorative lights to set up during our reception which our guests loved!

Katy and Zach were so easy to work with, and they were very helpful during our entire event. They were great for moving things along and making announcements to make sure people were in the right places at the right times. I cannot recommend them highly enough! They were an essential part of our perfect day!
