Hire, hire, hire Kristen Monnik. She was a dream to work with. My daughter, the bride, was thrilled with the service, so therefore, so was I! Kristen worked with the bride and groom on special requests. The music was beautiful and the sound was enchantingly beautiful. Kristen, although I did not get to formally say goodbye since the family was taking pictures, I want to say "Thank You So Very Much." You were incredible to work with. You are so talented. I especially appreciated working with you on the processional. It was my honor to sing the song with your accompaniment. My sisters agreed, I had never sounded better. You are amazing. Use me as a referral, please.
