Talented & Genuine

All we can say about Min-Hi of Auspicious Melody is: Wow!!! She was seriously amazing and made our special day even more memorable.

First off, her talent on the violin was unmatched. The music she played was absolutely magical and had everyone in awe. Her skills and mastery of the violin were out of this world. We couldn't get enough of her enchanting melodies that filled the air with elegance and romance.

But here's the thing that really knocked our socks off – she was so flexible and accommodating. We had some specific requests, and she went above and beyond to make sure everything was just perfect. She even learned a brand new piece for us in no time at all! It was incredible to see her dedication and professionalism in action.

Let me tell you, our guests were blown away too! They couldn't stop raving about how amazing the violinist was. Her music touched everyone's hearts and set the mood for the whole evening. We received countless compliments about her incredible talent. We had a wide variety of music from her repertoire that suited all tastes during her performance.

Not only was she crazy talented, but she was also super easy to work with. She showed up on time, was totally professional, and had the friendliest vibe ever. She knew exactly how to blend into the background and create a fantastic atmosphere without stealing the show.

If you're looking for a violinist to make your event unforgettable, this is the one. Trust us, you won't find anyone else as talented, flexible, and downright awesome as her. We're forever grateful for the joy she brought to our wedding day.

Thanks a million!

Warmest regards, The Riggs XO

Exceptional Violinist!

Min-Hi was amazing to work with for our wedding day. From the very start when we first contacted her, she was professional and the process was seamless. We were able to choose our playlist from her repertoire and she even learned a special request for us, which sounded beautiful. Min-Hi is truly talented and was a pleasure to have at our special day! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Spectacular

Min-hi did an amazing job at our ceremony. I had so much fun picking out the pieces with her that was customized to our tastes. Both my husband and I agree that she was that extra sparkle that made the ceremony memorable, so unique and special.

Thank you Min-hi for such a memorable performance. I would not hesitate to recommend you and will most definitely hire you again.

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.

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!

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
