    happy bride!

    Min-Hi was very responsive, even answering inquiries while on vacation! She was willing to alter playing timelines to work with our event, she has an extensive repertoire and she played the violin beautifully! Thank you again Min-hi playing lovely music and being a professional that a bride can count on!!

    Auspicious Melody - Violinist's reply:

    Hi Melissa! Thank you for your kind review, and I'm so happy that everything worked out. Even though we had our first snowfall happen during the ceremony, it added something magical to the moment. Thank you for having me be a part of your wedding day!

    Wonderful!!

    Having Min-hi Choi really complimented out black tie wedding event. Receiving lines can be long and boring, but having a live violinist really did make a difference. Our guests raved about it. She was super accommodating with music selection as well.

    Auspicious Melody - Violinist's reply:

    Hi Stefania! Thank you for your kind review! I was happy to provide the music for your guests as they waited to be received and get into the banquet hall. They were receptive and appreciative and I'm happy that you were satisfied with the music. I wish you and Matthew the very best in 2023 and beyond!

    Highly recommend!

    It was an absolute pleasure to work with Min-Hi.
    We had many compliments on our ceremony music and we absolutely loved seeing and hearing our vision come to life of a violinist at our wedding!
    Min-Hi was great with communicating and helping in any way.
    We highly recommend Min-Hi!

    Thank you so much Min-Hi!!

    Auspicious Melody - Violinist's reply:

    Hi Heather! Thank you for your kind review, and thank you for having me be a part of your beautiful wedding. I always appreciate hearing clients confirm that they were happy with the music. It's always important to me, and it always comes from the heart. I wish you and Michael the best in 2023 and beyond! Take care!

    Amazing Violinist

    We are so happy Min-Hi was part of our wedding day, her music made the day event more special. We really wanted a live musician to plan the music for our ceremony and reception. When researching we came across Auspicious Melody, and we are SOOOO delighted we did. I was so impressed (and moved) by the sample videos on her website and her extensive repertoire, which has such a great mix of different genres. We really wanted current/pop hits on violin, and we were able to pick every single song for the ceremony and for cocktail hour from her repertoire and Min-Hi even learned a track for our big day. Who else can say they walked back down the aisle to Drake's "Best I Ever Had," on violin, It was magical! We received so many compliments and positive feedback, from our guests, on the music.

    Thank you, Min-Hi! We are so grateful to have you be a part of our wedding and will cherish the memories forever.

    Wedding (during covid!)

    Min-Hi was an absolute joy to have at our wedding! Not only did we have to postpone a bunch due to covid, but Min-Hi made sure she stayed very organized and communicative throughout the whole process. She was extremely professional and everyone at the wedding loved her. She even played some songs from Frozen for my little nieces who danced when they heard it! I am so absolutely blessed to have found Min-Hi and her talent. I'm sure to keep in touch with her for any future events!! Thank you!

    Auspicious Melody - Violinist's reply:

    Hi Imelda! Thank you for your awesome review and kind words! You were also amazing to work with. You are funny and compassionate and made the process fun for me as well. I wish you and Douglas all the best and I hope we will work together again or even just keep in touch!

    Amazing and Special

    Min-Hi made the wedding day so special! She learned two songs for us, which both sounded wonderful! As well, I had to change the time of our contract and she was very accomodating! Very professional and was easy to work with!

    Auspicious Melody - Violinist's reply:

    Hi Elizabeth! Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so happy that you were pleased with the music. Thank you for having me be a part of your wedding day, and I wish you all the best in the future and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    Beautiful Violinist

    Despite a few hiccups between Min Hi and myself in terms of responsiveness and professionalism, I need to give her credit for the beautiful music she played during our ceremony. The violin added an extra something to our ceremony that was the perfect touch! So excited to watch our wedding video back and hear the music being played all over again.

    Auspicious Melody - Violinist's reply:

    Hi Stefanie,

    Thank you for your review. I am happy that the music played was well-received and enjoyed. I know we had a some issues and I do again apologize but thank you again for having me be a part of your wedding day, and for introducing me and my daughter to the songs of Moana!

    Amazing Experience

    I knew from the moment I listened to Min-Hi that my (now) husband and I had to book her for our wedding.

    If I had to name one aspect of that day that I could go back and indulge in more, it would be listening to her play prior to the start of our ceremony. Her repertoire is extensive and her ability to learn a new song in a short period of time (and play it well) speaks to her level of talent and professionalism.

    When Min-Hi began to play 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight' during the signing of our register, I started to get teary and my husband was ecstatic because it was his first choice for our first dance (though he compromised, and was glad to discover Min-Hi and I found a way to incorporate the song into our wedding.)

    Thank you, Min-Hi! We appreciated having you be a part of our wedding and will cherish the memories forever.

    Auspicious Melody - Violinist's reply:

    Hi Rachael. Thank you so much for your kind review. It was a beautiful wedding and I am always happy to hear that the music I provided was not only well-received but also, moved those who were listening. Thank you for having me be a part of your wedding, and I wish you all the best in your marriage!

    Wouldn't choose anyone else!

    Min Hi was amazing to work with - responsive, professional, and kind. She has great prices, an excellent skill set, and a beautiful repertoire to choose from.
    She was a highlight of our ceremony, I would recommend her to everyone! I can't wait to watch out wedding video and hear/see her whole performance.

Min-Hi Choi
Violinist/ Owner

Hello! My name is Min-Hi. I started learning the violin at the age of 8, and my first wedding gig was in the summer of '91, (yes, that's 1991!)

As I continue my music career, (for the past decade as a full-time professional in the wedding industry), and into the second generation of grooms and brides-to-be, I have taken my skills and various experiences to form what many in the wedding industry have told me is a beautiful, unique and polished performance of diverse genres of music to bring that special touch to one's wedding day. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you! :D
