    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.

    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!
