Wow! Brooksley is simply phenomenal. She has such an incredible and diverse range of music, from hip hop to adult contemporary - she plays it all on her violin so seamlessly. Prior to the wedding, I sent her a specific playlist for the ceremony, pre-ceremony and recessional, all of which she played beautifully. Brooksley was so friendly and accommodating in our email communication that when I finally met her in person, I felt as though I already knew her! She is a joy to work with and I would recommend her without question to anyone looking for a talented violinist for their special occasion. Brooksley elevated our wedding to another level and we are so grateful!

The scale is from 0 to 5 stars, but there should be exceptions available when appropriate. This is one of those times where an exception is appropriate. To simply give Brooksley a 5, for example, on how accommodating would do her injustice. I have a long list of messages that would say Brooksley should be given a 10 for how accommodating she has been. To the actual elopement date. Brooksley was absolutely amazing. She sent me videos and sound clips of her performances, but those do not come close to the real thing. Apparently there is a word limit to this review so I will end it this: Book her, you will not be disappointed.
