In 2007 we had Valerie Romanoff and her amazing band at my daughter's wedding at the NY Public Library. They were incredible. From coordinating the ceremony music to the cocktail hour vibe and the unbelievable band at the reception, they exceeded our expectations. When my younger daughter began planning her wedding, our first call was to Valerie. We went to their offices and talked about what my bride, Jennifer and groom Seth, envisioned for their wedding. In an instant, Valerie and her talented team got to work creating exactly what Jennifer wanted. From song selection to customized music, Valerie's team put it all together. They didn't miss a beat! The pre-ceremony music welcomed our guests to New York's Museum of Natural History with a warm style. The ceremony music was exactly what Jennifer chose; contemporary songs with an elegant feel- an amazing harpist and an ensemble that rivals any I could hear at Carnegie Hall. They even went so far as to take Jen's favorite song and learn it perfectly. That was no easy task as the sheet music was unavailable and they had to create the music, practice and learn this unusual Icelandic piece. Our guests couldn't get over the orchestral sound that accompanied my daughter down the aisle. And then there was the party- OMG- they were unbelievable, knowing the right mix of songs, keeping the crowd energized and engaged, making the night flow perfectly with the right balance. My guests all commented that the singers would blow any American Idol off the stage, the musicians were more talented than any they have heard in concert and Valerie's guitar artistry was awesome. The party remained full energy until the last person collapsed on the dance floor. Starlight was everything we could have ever hoped for and more. My only regret- I don't have another wedding to make, might just have to have Starlight come to my house and blow my mind one more time!
