Satisfied Client Testimonials
"We were so fortunate to have Tim Smith play at our daughter Sam's wedding. We will never forget hearing his beautiful and riveting rendition of 'Trumpet Voluntary' as the doors of the church opened and Sam and her dad began their walk down the aisle. It was truly a 'take your breath away' moment! We received so many kind notes following the wedding with words of praise for Tim. His playing at the ceremony was certainly a high-point of this special day"
