Athlone Wedding Bands  Flute Weddings provided the ceremony music for our wedding at Cairnwood Estates on Aug. 20, 2011. It could not have been more beautiful. We chose The Celestial Flute and Harp Duo, which so perfectly matched the atmosphere and ambiance of the venue. Working with Geri Rizzo, the flutist, was so easy. She was extremely helpful and informative. The musicians were extremely professional and talented. I would recommend them to everyone. ~ Melanie, Mother of the Bride

We were married on a beautiful day in October, 2011 on the outside lawn surrounded by beautiful gardens at the Southern Mansion in Cape May. I walked down a gorgeous outside staircase, to the angelic sounds of a flute and harp
(Magic Flute Weddings) and to the gazebo where we were married. The cocktail hour was set outside in the gardens, dinner was on the porch and we danced the night away downstairs. The food was amazing, from the appetizers to the crab cake and filet.  The Southern Mansion provided a perfect atmosphere and the staff exceeded all of my expectations… Kit

My wife and I hired the Magic Flute Wedding crew for our wedding last fall. They are absolutely incredible and professional musicians all around. We had Geri Rizzo, flute playing with the church organist for our ceremony. Geri was amazing in putting the arrangements together and working at last minute with a replacement organist we had to hire as well as with my sister who sang “Ave Maria.” The ceremony music was absolutely outstanding and tear-jerking. For the Cocktail Hour, we had a duo of string musicians to play the background music. This was such a great detail at our wedding and we received so many compliments about the music.  We communicated mostly via email which was a huge convenience for me. She will work with you to achieve whatever arrangements you may have in mind to make your wedding one of a kind.

Hello Brides, My name is Deirdre Holke and I was searching for someone fabulous with the right price who was great to play for my big day. Well I stumbled across Geri Rizzo and her team AKA MAGIC FLUTE WEDDINGS.  I was invited to Geri’s home to hear her play a few songs for us.  We immediately got the chills and knew we were going to go with Magic Flute Weddings. Not only was Geri professional and confident in the service she was providing but she had a great sense of humor and great personality; now that’s hard to come by.   It’s also important that you feel comfortable with the person/people you are dealing with for your big day. If you came across Magic Flute Weddings my suggestion would be to book them right away because you won’t find anyone better for the service and the price and the comfort of knowing you are going to get exactly what you asked for.   Happy Booking Ladies and Congratulations!  Newly Married Deirdre Holke, (Flute and Guitar, Beach)
