Maria was absolutely fantastic - we needed a musician very last minute for our wedding, and despite the time constraints and the fact that the music was new, Maria did an amazing job of providing just the music we had hoped for. The music added such a special and unique touch to our wedding: Maria played it beautifully and it will be a treasure to look back at our video footage in the future and hear this beautiful music again. We can't recommend her highly enough, and we are really grateful for what she contributed towards our day with her skill, kindness and courtesy. We will certainly recommend her to our friends in the future. Thank you, Maria! :)
