  • Perfect musician for our ceremony! A classiscal guitarist! He learned two new songs and Gretchen, the musical coordinator at Elan was extremely responsive and flexible in helping us plan the ceremony. Now every time I hear "falling slowly" or "All you need is love" I will think of our wedding because he played it so perfectly! Thank you!!

  • Open Eye Media was our videographer at our wedding and The Source was our band. They were both outstanding, and I would recommend them highly to anyone planning a wedding. The Source, in particular, was outstanding. Our dance floor was packed all night long, and I would hire them again.

  • I used Shane Carpenter from Elan Artists. His work is amazing. He had a great eye for detail and was extremely nice to work with.

  • We booked our ceremony musician and reception band through Elan Artists. I worked with Josh Friedman to book the band, then Gretchen Clements worked with me to hammer out the details for the musicians (ceremony song choices, etc.). They were both very responsive and easy to work with. Our ceremony musician (Ken Hall) played classical guitar for two hours, then joined with a bass guitar player and drummer to play light jazz for the reception for three hours. The music was just what I had hoped for, and even my musical family (grandpa, dad, sister, and both brothers are musicians) couldn't stop talking about how great the performance was. They helped set a relaxed, mellow mood for our event, and toward the end they even took some requests from my grandpa, who plays jazz at weddings himself. I would recommend Elan Artists, and would highly recommend Ken Hall in particular.

  • We used Nation, of Elan Artists, for our band and they were wonderful. They had people on the dance floor the entire night and were more than gracious at working with our special requests. I would recommend them to any bride that wants everyone to dance.

  • We hired Nation Band through Elan artists and they were absolutely fantastic! The music was great- they really responded to the music we wanted to hear and had a lot of fun with us! The variety of music they can play is really amazing- I worried that a band wouldn't provide enough variety and that we might be better off with a DJ, but that was not the case! They played a lot of great music from a variety of genres- couldn't be happier! They complied with requests and included our list of 'must play' songs and played a lot of other great songs too. Everyone had a blast and they were a pleasure to work with. Strongly recommend!

  • We worked with Josh at Elan early in our wedding planning, and benefited from that decision every step of the way. In the end, we booked our photographer, guitarist (ceremony), pianist (cocktail hour) and DJ services through him. The caliber of professionals he supplied were top-notch and uniformly great to work with. Most importantly for this review, the DJ services he personally delivered were just phenomenal! It's really impossible to overstate how important the music is in setting the right tone for the reception, and Josh's instincts were absolutely spot-on. Every step of the evening was simply perfect. We hadn't expected for there to be much, if any, dancing during our reception, but we couldn't have been more wrong! Everyone in attendance spent the majority of the evening drawn to that dance floor, grinning ear to ear, enjoying a flawless mix of just the right music for every moment. In the end, I'd even go so far as to say that today I'd count Josh among my friends - jus... Read more

  • I can barely remember even hearing any music during my ceremony, I was so out of it- but what I do remember, was good. I heard positive things from my guests about the brass quartet we picked. I was frustrated however with the process of picking songs- I was given a list of possible song titles, and every time I would take the names to the coordinator, she would say, "whoops, we don't have that for a brass quartet"....well, then give me songs you DO HAVE! I paid extra to have a special song arranged, which was pretty pricey as far as I was concerned.

  • They did a good job with our videos. We got a few different ones and we were happy with the outcome. It's important though to be specific to get exactly what you want.

  • We were so pleased with our harp and flute duo and the service leading up to the big day. Our music coordinator was so on the ball and made sure she had everything she needed. Great with follow ups and super friendly! The musicians really were first rate and everyone complimented us on how beautiful it was. Had everyone crying!

  • I hired a solo guitarist through Elan Artists to do my ceremony and cocktail hour. He arrived on time and was very professional. My only complaint was when I started down the aisle, he didn't start playing the music immediately. He waited for me to start walking. My ceremony was outside and my guests could see me walking from further away than the 'typical' entrance so that meant I was walking to silence and only about 5 seconds of the song was actually played. Other than that, the music was beautiful. I didn't hear the cocktail hour music because I was out getting pictures taken, but my guests said it was nice background music. The event coordinators from Elan were very responsive and very organized. This was a very positive experience because I didn't have to worry about following up with them, they always reached out to me to confirm before I had a chance to do so.

  • I used them for my wedding in VA- they are based out of Baltimore, MD. My classical guitarist was HORRIBLE! He played the wedding march for my entire bridal party, not just for me!! I even had my planner tell him (again) on the day what he was suppose to do. Don't use them.

    responded with the following comments.

    We sincerely apologize for Lorelei's disappointment with our guitarist, this situation resulted from some miscommunication on the wedding day. This guitarist is an absolute professional that has played hundreds of weddings, and is in fact frequently requested by clients.
