I had a wonderful experience with Stolen Moments and would recommend them highly to anyone looking for amazing, memorable live music for their event. I engaged their services for my wedding in October 2015, for both the ceremony and the recepti...
on. For the ceremony, we had a very talented harpist, Joy, who accommodated all of my (very specific) requests for the prelude, processional, and recessional. She did a beautiful job of playing a mixture of classical and contemporary music, and her timing was spot-on. There were no awkward moments without music during the procession; her transitions were seamless and her performance added so much to our ceremony.
Originally, I hadn't planned on having music at the cocktail hour, but when Stolen Moments offered to include a keyboard player, I was thrilled. The music provided during cocktail hour was elegant and understated but engaging.
We had a 7-piece band for our reception, and I could not have been happier with them. They did an excellent job of reading the crowd and responding accordingly, while incorporating all of the songs my fiance and I had requested in advance. They worked with us so that our choreographed first dance to "Can't Take My Eyes off of You" went really smoothly. The band even learned a song that was not listed as part of their repertoire just so that I could include it as a special surprise dedication to my fiance. It meant so much to me that they went out of their way to make the music personal and meaningful to us.
The singers - Jose, Leann, and Martin - did an excellent job not only performing but interacting with the crowd, as well. They made sure that the various components of the reception (i.e.: speeches, father-daughter and mother-son dances, cake-cutting, etc.) happened when and how they were supposed to, without being overbearing and cheesy as some MCs can be. Their performance was the perfect blend of fun and sophistication, and it really took my wedding to the next level.
