  • Paradies Ensemble played during my daughters wedding on 2/16/19. We hired them to play during the ceremony and cocktail hour. My only regret is that I didn't get to hear more of the beautiful music they provided. Many of my guests commented on how lovely it was to sit in the courtyard (while waiting for the ceremony to begin) and listen to Julie and Jim's music . They played popular songs at the cocktail hour and it was the perfect backdrop. They were professional from start to finish. Thank you Julie and Jim !

  • Julie was really easy to communicate with! They came to the rescue after our previous musician cancelled, and I am so glad they did! We hired the violinist, cellist, and trumpet players. I played the violin and my brother played the trumpet, so there was some extra sentimental value with that as well. But the trumpet was awesome!! It was windy out, and the trumpet cut through and was heard clearly, not overpowering but the violin and cello were lost a little so I actually loved it even more than I thought I would! It is actually one of the memories I have of walking down the staircase and down the aisle, so it was very special. They played Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and because my name is Rose they played every song they knew involving "Rose". So they definitely thought of everything and were beautiful! They played for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I would recommend Paradies Ensemble in a heartbeat and I am so glad we were able to have them at our wedding!

  • The Paradies Quartet played at our wedding ceremony on August 3, 2013. Julie was extremely accommodating of our requests, and that reflected a great deal of care for and attention to the ambiance we were seeking to create. Julie was very easy to work with and she provided us with ideas that never even occurred to us. The Paradies Quartet definitely made our wedding ceremony an event to remember. Our guests were raving about the trumpet being used and were amazed at just how much that made a difference to any wedding they have ever been to. We were so pleased with Julie’s professionalism and her overall demeanor throughout the planning process. Julie made this part of the wedding planning so stress free and we were grateful for that! I highly recommend The Paradies Quartet for an event to remember!

  • I have the greatest memories of my wedding and the people involved. I was married at a church in goshen with the reception in waahingtonville and had a beautiful, sincere and loving ceremony. I can't wait to revisit all of my wedding ceremony and reception sites for my five year anniversary.

  • The trio of Julie, Jay and Jim were terrific! They played at both our wedding ceremony and the cocktail hour and it was lovely. They were not only musically wonderful but they were very flexible when our timing of the program went a little awry. They adapted without skipping a beat! We are so pleased to recommend them - you won't be disappointed!

  • We enlisted the services of the Paradies Ensemble for our ceremony and a portion of the cocktail hour for our July 2012 wedding at Lippincott Manor. Julie was so helpful with our musical selections and simply a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. Our interaction with her could not have been any easier. We chose the three person ensemble, which consisted of Julie (violin), Jim (trumpet), and Jay (cello). We cannot thank them enough for truly adding such a wonderfully majestic feel to our special day. They were set up and ready to go on time, playing music for my guests as they arrived. They sounded absolutely impeccable and beyond professional, even braving the hot summer day we had. My guests are still raving about the Paradies Ensemble and how much they enjoyed listening to them during my cocktail hour and watching them perform. I had guests from 15 years old to 85 years old and they all loved the music selections. I would highly recommend the Paradies ensemble for y... Read more

  • I could not be happier with my decision to hire Julie to play the violin during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. It provided a touch of elegance that could never have been achieved by a DJ, and really added something special and memorable to our day. Especially considering the fact that a DJ would have charged a comparable amount to work during the cocktail hour, the live music was so much more elegant and was absolutely the right choice! Thank you, Julie!

  • Everyone was very happy with the music. The only complaints came from the mothers of the bride. The processional music did not start on time for the mothers entrance. There was no music for the mothers to walk down to and the bridal party processional was split between two songs which was not on the processional itinerary.

    responded with the following comments.

    It's too bad that the mothers started walking before their music began. The musicians were playing Prelude music at the time, and no one gave them a signal that the mothers were ready to walk; they just started walking. The musicians DID play the mothers' music, and followed that immediately with the bridal party music. Sometimes in the "heat of the moment" things like this occur. Everyone should go with the flow.

  • The Paradies Ensemble was absolutely wonderful. We could not have asked for a more professional or better musical ensemble for our wedding. Although, I would rarely give anyone a full five-star rating, this group deserves six (6) stars for all of your categories listed. While I would not like to admit it, in large part, their participation "made" the wedding. I recommend them highly.

    The ensemble at this event was the string trio of violin, viola and cello. It was our pleasure to play at your wedding, Michael.

  • I was extremely pleased with Paradies Ensemble's services. I thought the music played during our cocktail hour (that was not a selection). I felt once I had hired them, I trusted them to perform the music selections we discussed, which was mainly classical music, and they definitely performed to my satisfaction and added a very nice touch to our cocktail hour. I am very happy that we selected them to perform at our wedding.

  • My mother-in-law is a musician and said Julie Berman and her colleagues are the best. They arrived early as scheduled and played everything beautifully as planned. The ceremony was beautiful and I know that having the violin trio and trumpet made it that much more special. [I am still waiting for the video to really be able to review it all though]. It would not have been the same wedding without this beautiful music. The only negative thing I would say is that I made a change to one of the song selections a few weeks before the wedding and sent an e-mail requesting confirmation and didn't hear back from her for about a week and so I had to call her and when I noted the e-mail she questioned my choice in song change. Julie did give me the freedom to pick all the songs I wanted and she also made some suggestions and added things as needed. Overall, they make beautiful music and perform elegantly for an event.
