When I heard the samples that Ian had sent over to me I thought that they would have been phenomenal for my ceremony. The reason for 2 stars is because the women that played at our wedding played way too quietly. When it was my time to walk down the aisle, I couldn't hear the...

During our time to exit the music was very quiet too. I expected it to be a bit more lively and not sound like they were playing at a funeral. I wish that I didn't invest with Columbus Musicians and wish that I was able to invest in a team that offered sample live performances instead of recordings.
