Wedding Clients

“Tim Gardner is wonderful. His music blended into the atmosphere of our mountain wedding. His fiddle skills are top notch and was the most personable musician (really good one!) I have ever had the chance to work with or meet. Having his tunes fill our special day will never be forgotten. My husband and I listen to Timmetry all the time and think of him and his oh so sweet skills! Thanks Tim!”
-Anna Richey

“We booked Tim to play at our outdoor wedding in the mountains of North Carolina. I was looking for something with a slight twist on the traditional violin for the mountain setting and so chose Tim to fiddle, along with his partner to play the guitar. I was a little nervous as I booked Tim based off a referral and had never actually heard him play or met him in person. On the wedding day, he and his partner were there on time, had both dressed very nicely and played great music! They were fun and charming; couldn’t have asked for more! I received several compliments from guests who thoroughly enjoyed their performance.”
-Hannah Miller

“We couldn’t have been more happy to have Tim play at our wedding. His professional demeanor and skillful, beautiful playing provided the perfect backdrop for our ceremony.”
