Testimonials

"Charles and Emily were great and made the music one thing we didn't need to worry about on our big day. They were friendly, yet professional and very adaptable. We're very thankful that they could help to set a relaxed vibe at our reception and of course they sounded beautiful!"
Christie and JD Dutton, Bride and Groom
"The songs that we chose for our ceremony meant a lot to us, so it was really beautiful to have Emily and Charles want to understand that and grasp the depth of the songs and what they meant to us. It helped that they are an extremely talented duo and are singing out of a place of love themselves!"
Jade and Daniel Jackson, Bride and Groom
"I am so happy Emily and Charles were able to sing at our wedding – The very first things I locked in was the photographer and these two to play tunes at our reception! It was just as I'd hoped, and the room was buzzing, everyone loved having some live music to listen to while they chatted and it helps that Emily and Charles are totally in love so the wedding love vibes were outta control!!! They are so easy and natural and put everyone totally at ease."
Steph and Doug Norman, Bride and Groom
