    One of the best parts of my day

    Vaughan and his partner played at our wedding and it was one of the best parts of my day. I just wished I could have been sitting in the ceremony room at the beginning with all our lucky guests who got to hear them play our classical playlist! Very professional, great communication prior to the day and on the day I had no doubts that they would do an amazing job, and they did. Thank you so much!
