She made the planning process so easy and was very good at communicating during the song selection and planning process. All of our guests were so extremely impressed with the quality of our ceremony music, we had such positive feedback! She played very modern songs and also some classics, there was really something for everyone.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with her and I would refer her to anyone without hesitation. Looking forward to working with Precious Moment again in the near future! Thank you for all your hard work and making our proposal truly special!

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your amazing work on this project!

Since we first connected on GigSalad and I learned about the work that you do, I was excited to have you on our team.  When I presented you the prelude, your enthusiasm to take on such a challenge meant a lot, considering how, back then, this project was very tentative.  Then when the time came, you put your heart and soul into it with the utmost professionalism...
The vicious speed you played on Sunday was INCREDIBLE!  It encapsulated so much intensity and relentless edge-of-your-seat energy!  I could imagine those horses very clearly.  So did others.
As part of the ensemble, you matched Marianne excellently.  I remember, in an Orchestration seminar, to be careful about harmonizing in thirds in the high ledger-lines.  You two sounded like silk at those moments, in every turn.  I am humbled and honoured to have worked with you and your dedicated talent."

“Precious Moment was a big part in the wedding proposal I did in downtown Toronto. Very flexible. Just 2 days before the proposal, I was calling from Switzerland and could discuss with her when and where she could play our song in Toronto. Also that she wrote the proposal on the board (with light), was sooo nice. The proposal itself, she was playing "hi there delilah"...soo good! At the proposal itself, everything was perfect and as planned. THANKS SO MUCH, NEVER FORGET THAT!”
