Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. It was so beautiful. With my family having an Irish background, it has always been a wish of ours to have a harp at my wedding. I was really worried about finding someone who would come near the beach for us. Thank you so much, that day was truly a dream come true.

 Dear Kristin,

I wanted to say thank you to you and Jadde for helping make Jennie's wedding so beautiful.  I have studied and played classical piano music since I was 4 and truly believe the music to be a very important part of a wedding.  You and Jadde both helped make this one lovely.  Thank you for everything you did for us!

All my best,

Bonnie Hiatt (MOB)- December 29th, 2010


Thank you so very much for the beautiful music that you played at Erin and Jordan's wedding. The whole weekend was magnificent and just flew by. Erin was a radiant bride and she and Jordan are a precious couple.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to introduce myself to you. I know my husband did; however. If you ever need a reference for anything, please don't hesitate to use our name. You were wonderful and we really, really appreciated everything.

Thanks again. Barbara (Mother of the Bride)

J.T. and I just wanted to say what a wonderful experience it was working with New Arts Ensembles for our wedding.  Kristin, you made the scheduling so easy and Ricardo you sounded amazing at the ceremony.  It was such a relief to work with such professionals and not have to worry about anything.  Thank you for helping to make our wedding wonderful!

Many thanks,

Dear Kristin,

Perfect, perfect, perfect. Our wedding guests gushed that this was the most beautiful ceremony that they had ever attended. Of course, much of that impression is because of the elegant music. Sara's nerves were calmed by the soothing sounds, and that is much more than I ever could've imagined.

Please let Trae know how much our guests loved his voice and the tone he set for the entire reception with his first dance song.

Thank you so very much for making this the wedding of Sara and Brian's dreams.

With sincere appreciation,

Thank you for providing the entertainment to this year's TLC & CVB Holiday Reception at the Jepson Center for the Arts.  It was a pleasure working with you and the harp and violin music was delightful!  We thoroughly enjoyed the event and thank you for the time you spent helping to ensure that it was a success.

Dear Ricardo,

Besides Amy's dress and her walk down the isle, my favorite memories of this wedding will be the music!  I cannot thank you enough for your professional touches, your time, and above all talent.  You guys are the best in Savannah and I am so glad we chose you.  If I can ever recommend you, please feel free to contact me.

Hi Kristin,
I just wanted to send you a quick thank you and appreciation for helping to make our ceremony so beautiful. The guests were raving about the music and as the doors opened for me and I heard "Annie's Song" being played, I could not help from tearing up. What you all do is so beautiful, magical, and brings so much joy to people. Thank you once again.

Thank you so much for everything!  The group Silver Lining was fabulous and we look forward to doing many more events with New Arts Ensembles in the future.

Thanks so much for your part in making Brent and Stacy's wedding a beautiful event.  The word I keep hearing from everyone that attended the wedding is "magical".  We couldn't have asked for anything more.  We are starting to get photos from the wedding and they are absolutely gorgeous.  I think Savannah showed herself well for all of our out of town quests.

Please know that the music was beautiful and that Stacy was well pleased.  Thank you for everything that you did at the last minute to help us out, and thanks for making this a day to remember for Brent and Stacy!

I will definitely recommend you to others.

Thanks again,
Cathy Gooding (May 1st, 2009)


They [Silver Lining] were perfect and were an excellent addition to that wonderful venue! Thanks for the ease of your scheduling process and for your flexibility. You don't see such hospitable customer service like that very often these days!

Let me thank you again for how much your playing of the harp added to our special time. Everyone loved it. I know for you it was the 8th gig of the day but, for us you were fantastic. Please also know that Keith was great. He didn't just play an ipod- he was dancing and so into every song. In fact we invited him to join us on the dance floor for the last couple of songs. Thank you both again for making our day more memorable.

Be well,

Thank you so much for the beautiful music you provided for our May 13th wedding out on Tybee. I just wanted to let you know that I received several compliments about the violinist. Thank you again and I will be sure to recommend you to anybody I know who is going to be married.

Best Wishes,
Angela and Preston Sellers

Travis and I just wanted to thank New Arts Ensembles for doing such an excellent job at our wedding ceremony. The music was outstanding and our guests were very impressed.

Thanks again,

Thank you so much for playing the harp at my sister-in-law's wedding.  It added such a beautiful touch to the outdoor wedding and made it feel like the important ceremony that it was.

Dear Kristin,

Your harp added so much to the music for Lauren's wedding.  We had many comments on the beauty of the music and I am so happy you could play for us.  I was fortunate enough to hear a few pieces as I waited to be seated and I loved them all.  Thank you for your contribution to a most joyful rite.

Dan and I just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful job you guys did at our wedding and the fantastic job Trae and Peter did at the reception!
It was awesome.  I am looking forward to seeing the video Dan’s aunt took at the ceremony so I can really enjoy the music!  Dan said it was beautiful…I guess the bride really doesn’t get to enjoy that part!  We loved it and felt like everything came together perfectly.  I was sorry I didn’t get to thank you three personally at the ceremony, but I wanted to let you know we loved it!

Thanks for everything!

I just received my wedding video and was able to listen to the music that you played. It was absolutely beautiful. Both of you could not have been better. I’m so glad I went with the harp and violin duo! Thank you for making my ceremony so beautiful.
