Testimonials

“The Ashlings were absolutely the perfect accompaniment for our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception–charming, versatile, professional, accommodating of requests, and, best of all, just a beautiful, heartfelt sound. We loved having them there, and got raves from all our wedding guests about their performance. Highly recommend!”
-Tim Sohn, New York

“We loved working with The Ashlings two summers ago for our wedding at Black Butte Ranch! They played a version of a Jack Johnson song we love and will always remind us of this day. They were a pleasure to work with their musical style perfectly matched the vibe and beauty of Central Oregon.”
-Laurie Williams

“The Ashlings were the absolute best decision I made for my wedding. Having them play at my ceremony while the guests were seated and then when I walked down the aisle made the entire experience magical. My guests were in awe of how great they were. Laurel was quick to respond to all of my emails and was more than accommodating to any special requests. I can’t thank you guys enough… truly!”

“The Ashlings were the soundtrack to the happiest day of our life. They nailed our ceremony, even if our songs weren’t the most usual choice, and I’ll never forget walking into our reception, smiling wider than I could have ever imagined, with their music filling my ears. My husband couldn’t have surprised me with a better band. Thank you Ashlings!”
-Lily Sohn, New York

“It was a real joy to work with Laurel and Amy of the Ashlings. From our first conversation, to the beautiful musical backdrop they provided at our ceremony, they were extremely professional. The biggest thing for us though was how enthusiastic they were about making sure the music was personal and meaningful. It was a lot of fun to see them interpret our special songs.”

“I can’t think of a more perfect musical fit for our destination wedding in Sisters. The rustic location was the perfect setting for a cello, an acoustic guitar, and Laurel’s smokey alto. Even though the set up was non-traditional, they were able to play the classics during the ceremony and jam out a little more during the reception. My Irish cousins were particularly impressed.”

-Sarah and Tom, Austin, TX

“We really wanted to make our day special and unique… not like every other wedding. And we decided music was going to be a big part of that equation. So, it was just really really cool to have The Ashlings learn our special songs. We know not everyone would pick “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, and “Into the Dark,” by Death Cab for their wedding songs, but these songs mean a lot to us and The Ashlings performed them beautifully.”

-Holly & Jason, Seattle, WA

“We’re from Portland and love soaking up the music scene there. The Ashlings have a vibe that we really related to. They played the traditionals during the ceremony, which the grandparents really appreciated, and then played our favorites during dinner. It was the perfect combination and it made it so much easier not to have to hire two bands.”
