First thing I remember from my wedding day; doors open to the chapel when I see my bride and hear beautiful violin music as she walks down the aisle. I will not admit to crying but Yuliya has the ability of make you feel things ten times with her music and talent. She becomes a puzzle piece to your wedding day that you get to relive over and over again in your memory.

Yuliya Lockyear provided a solo electric violin performance for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The music was beautiful. Yuliya replied to my many messages quickly. She was flexible, professional and made every effort to personalize the performance. I highly recommend Yuliya Lockyear. At first, I was concerned about booking with someone you haven’t met in person. But Yuliya called shortly after I sent her a request. She answered every email I sent. She showed up on time and played exactly as agreed upon. I would not hesitate to book with her again.
