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.

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!

The Happy Couple Duo made the night so special! I am so glad we decided to go with them as our ceremony musician and DJ. The ceremony music was so beautiful. I had so many compliments on how awesome the music sounded during the ceremony. As for the reception, The Happy Couple Duo played all music we requested which was awesome!! They were so flexible if we wanted to change or add something. They made the night so special. For our song, we only had a YouTube version which did not sound good at all. They worked on it and made it sound like it was off a CD. It was so perfect!

The Happy Couple Duo did such a fantastic job at my sister's wedding. We couldn't have asked for more beautiful ceremony music. They allowed the bride and groom to choose all of the music for the reception; if they didn't have the files already they downloaded them. They went above and beyond to make every last detail perfect. I would highly recommend the Happy Couple Duo to anyone!

Their live violin, viola duet was beautiful. We did not meet until the day of the wedding, but they could practically read my mind about everything I wanted. The ceremony music ran smoothly and they knew exactly what they were doing. They did an amazing job as DJs for the reception as well. A lot of the guests have commented how they kept everyone dancing and having a good time.
I would highly recommend them for any event.

They even suggested ways to add creative touches to other aspects of our day. Their quick responsiveness through email and phone calls was very professional for planning setup and making last minute changes. They made quick changes for a last minute rain shower before an outdoor ceremony and made the evening flow smoothly. We were so happy to have the Happy Couple Duo be a part of our wedding! Thank you!

The Happy Couple Duo are talented musicians that truly have a passion for music! My wedding was held on May 11, 2013 at the Castle Post in Versailles, KY. During ceremony, the couple starred as a string duo, performing modern day hits such has"Better Together"by Jack Johnson,"Unchained Melody"by the Righteous Brothers and all time favorites from Disney.Their music selection for strings include everything from classical hits to covers by The Beatles and Taylor Swift.After the ceremony, the Duo went straight into MCing and Djing for the next 4.5 hours.They played request on demand,as well as suggested playlist based off our musical preferences.Dinner for guest was held in a tent outside the Castle and the cake cutting and dancing we held in two separate rooms inside the Castle.They had to play in 4 different areas,one added literally in the middle of the reception unexpectedly!The Duo had no problem accommodating and set up an amp and mic within minutes!Guest had no clue it wasn't planned!In addition, the couple provided LED lighting for decorating the tent area...amazing!It honestly made dinner more fun and put all the focus on us at the head table! I HIGHLY recommend their services and assure your happiness!This was the first time I had used them.I found them on a wedding site, viewed their page and booked them.Thank God I did, because they are what made my event a major success!They're affordable and honestly do an amazing job! Please take my advice and book them for all your entertainment needs! I'm so thankful I did and can't thank them enough for working with me; making themselves flexible to change plans literally last minute!I will continue to book them in the future and hope you decide to as well!Central KY Brides, you won't find a better deal in this area.Trust me, they will out do any other string duo or DJ'n service and they have packages that include both! I promise, you'd be over paying and wasting your time if you choose other vendor for such services!

I stumbled upon Katy and Zach's website during the initial stages of planning my wedding. As soon as I reviewed their website and videos, my Fiancé and I were AMAZED! I had searched and reviewed around 10 other DJ's prior to finding their website. I was having a very hard time find String Quartets, Solo Artist etc. While I was a very laid back bride, there were several things that I had to have and strings during the ceremony was one of them! Regardless, I found Katy and Zach and they were EXACTLY what I was looking for! I was able to have traditional style music for the ceremony, but with a twist! They performed The Yeah, Yeah, Yeah's, Jack Johnson, Taylor Swift and other great songs during my ceremony. It was amazing. They were completely on point and you could sing along as they played the violin! It was really awesome!

Their new lighting system is amazing! We LOVED IT! We had it behind us to spot light our table and they took care of everything! The lighting was so cool and really tied up the room!

Katy and Zach didn't stop at the wedding though! Once it was over they posted videos and pictures within a day of the event! Me and my guest loved seeing highlights and pictures so early!

I HIGHLY recommend the Happy Couple Duo! They helped make my wedding day even more special and ensured fit our style and was taken care of! I plan book them for any and all future events! They truly love what they do and each other; which is shown through their amazing work and personalities! And they are super affordable!

Thank you guys so much for what you do and sharing your amazing talent and love with young couples like us! We, and our guests, loved your performances and were so impressed by your talents!

My husband and I both loved working with the Happy Couple Duo for our wedding! The entire process, from the initial planning meeting to the rehearsal to the very last song on the wedding day, was fantastic! The Happy Couple Duo poured creativity and hard work into every aspect of my event. I highly recommend them for both their live music and DJ services.

My husband and I were so pleased with The Happy Couple Duo! Definitely the highlight of our wedding. Katy and Zachary were always quick to respond to any questions we had, as well as always willing to meet with us per our convenience despite their busy schedules.
The ceremony violin arrangements were nothing less than perfect. We used The Happy Couple Duo for our DJs at the reception as well. Everyone enjoyed the music from the youngest of our guests to the oldest. They were very accommodating playing any requests as well as all the songs we had pre selected. Katy and Zachary went above and beyond our expectations. Their lighting set a great tone around our mansion venue and really up-played it's charming features.
Such a talented, genuine couple with so much to offer, from a large, unique violin arrangement library, to an endless playlist selection and lighting! We would recommend The Happy Couple Duo to anyone!

We hired Katy & Zach to perform at my sister's wedding this past March because we were in search of contemporary musicians who could provide us with a large music library, of both classical and contemporary, without compromising skill. It was a plus that they offer dee jaying services, too. Additionally, we wanted a vendor with personality. We searched high and low and found no one vendor that offered the selection The Happy Couple Duo offered. They are intelligent, passionate musicians who go above and beyond to deliver outstanding services. They made the experience of selecting music and lighting enjoyable, outlined a clear planning process and were flexible with our needs. They arrived the day of prepared after having met with us in person a couple of times, touring our venue and communicating via email on several occasions. It was apparent that although they made a profit, they cared about providing excellent service, understood the wedding industry and how to customize their offerings based on the client. The fact that they were extremely down to earth was an added bonus. Perhaps most importantly to note is that they are phenomenal violinists. The ceremony music was beautiful. If music is important part of your wedding day, The Happy Couple Duo will not disappoint!

Dominic and I have said, several times since the wedding, that hiring The Happy Couple Duo was our smartest decision! They helped us establish a sense of professionalism and elegance. We were able to be a guest at our own wedding because of Katy & Zach's confidence to run our evening and keep us on schedule. But the whole time the evening felt organic and genuine.

Very friendly and talented couple. Met with us at a convenient venue prior to the ceremony and tied up all loose ends. Had music selection ready to peruse and answered all questions. On the day of the wedding- they showed up on time, looked great and played great despite the ridiculous heat. Collected their contract fee and left. Was a smooth transaction and a breath of fresh air for a rather involved wedding held at our home organized completely by the wife and I. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thanks, guys. -Edward & Megan

The Happy Couple Duo helped make our wedding amazing. The were easy to work with, had an enormous( and ever-growing) list of music, and the were so much fun!
They met with us months in advance and made sure we were all on the same page with the style of music we wanted. We picked out most of the songs but they gave us recommendations based off of the type of music we like. They also went through every step of the reception and helped give us a structure to follow, which made everything run smoothly. Everyone at my wedding loved them!
They were really great at sticking with out chosen songs and then listening to the party-goers toward the end of the night and keeping the fun dancing vibe going until the very end.
The were absolutely fantastic and I would recommend them to everyone!

Katy and Zach were wonderful. They were more than happy to help us build a somewhat untraditional song list for our wedding and somehow managed to find several rather obscure songs. On the day of the event, they were punctual, professional, and a lot of fun. Highly recommended!

Katy and Zach did our ceremony and cocktail hour music, then DJ'd for our reception on May 12, 2012. They were so wonderful and easy to work with, and very accomodating. They have a HUGE library of music, and not just Top 40 or pop -- plenty of indie music -- and they were more than happy to take our requests. We and our guests had so much fun with them at our wedding, and we would highly recommend this great duo to anyone looking for ceremony/reception musicians!

Katy & Zach were really, really wonderful at my ceremony. They began right on time and sounded amazing as guests were being seated and throughout the ceremony. I asked if they could play longer than originally booked a couple weeks before the wedding and they responded quickly and were super flexible (a huge relief when your wedding is right around the corner!). They added an extra flair to my ceremony & I am so glad I decided to hire them!
