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!
