    From the time that we got engaged, we knew that we wanted Occasional Notes to play at our wedding. We had seen them perform at various events in the past and were blown away by their talent. We had booked Barb and Laurie approximately a year in advanced and every few months, they got in contact with us to see how we were doing and bounce ideas back and forth with us. They even provided us recommendations for other venues that we ended up using. The planning of our ceremony was a lot of fun. We met at the Occasional Notes studio where Barb and Laurie had already prepared many song choices that suited our personalities and music taste. We were able to identify exactly what we wanted in no time. Our ceremony would not have been the same without Occasional Notes. What a difference live music makes!! We had so many compliments from our guests and everyone had so much fun watching the Bride walk down to "I Can See The Light" at our Disney inspired wedding.

    Awww Anna ! It was such a pleasure ! You are both so special to us !
    Thank you for your kind words !

    Laurie and Barb were such a pleasure to work with. Their expertise and passion shine through with everything they do. They had excellent recommendations for music, even for parts of the day they weren't playing for. Having them play for our ceremony added exactly the right touch and made the day that much more special. We had multiple guests approach us and tell us how much they loved the piano playing as well. I would recommend Occassional Notes to anyone!

    Occasional Notes's reply:

    Caitlin! Thank you so much for this !live you guys and it was our pleasure to play for your special day !

    HIGHLY Recommend Occasional Notes as a part of any event, Barb and Laurie are very genuine and personal yet maintain a high level of professionalism. They will work with you and build a playlist based on your personal style and event, and you will be blown away by the outcome.

    Laurie and Barb from Occasional Notes were amazing to work with! They genuinely cared about making our day perfect and creating the "soundtrack" for our wedding ceremony. They did an absolutely wonderful job!

    Occasional notes made my wedding ceremony have such a beautiful glowing feel to it. When I heard the music playing before I made my entrance, I had to tell myself not to cry. The music is what gave me that moment or that thought in my mind that said... this is it. I dont think my wedding would have been as great without Laurie and Barb.

    Occasional Notes's reply:

    Thank you Cyla for your lovely words. We loved playing for your day and we hope all your years together will be "magical"!

    Occasional Notes performed at our son's wedding in January on a very cold day. Their music warmed our hearts. The moment that we walked in the doors of the church, we were surrounded by sweet song. Laurie and Barb helped guide us in choosing the music for each moment of the ceremony. They even played our wedding song - from 32 years ago. I would recommend Occasional Notes for your son or daughter's wedding whole heartedly.

    Occasional Notes performed at our wedding on January 8th. It was a cold wintery day but we were warmed as soon as we entered the cathedral by the sounds of Bach,Bizet and Puccini.They planned every moment of music for us. The wedding party was a little late arriving to the church - but the music just played on and on. I would highly recommend Occasional Notes for your wedding ceremony!
