Claire was amazing and came early and was in great spirits when I sprung the idea that she wear a costume to get into the vibe of the party. Then the choice of songs and playing was spot on.

Claire played at our wedding while guests were arriving and performed during the ceremony. We had some special requests for music we wanted and Claire found the music and played them beautifully. Claire's playing really set the mood and created a beautiful atmosphere.
