At the top of my list is to thank you for your wonderful music. It was just perfect and more than lived up to my expectations. You are all so talented and professional in your performance. Your lovely sounds blended perfectly with the setting and added a dimension that nothing else ever could.
Hildie’s song touched everyone and of course, made me cry. Sherry, thank you so much for working with her and making her dream to sing to Troy possible.
It was just lovely and a part of the day that she will always cherish.
I’ll be forever grateful to my friend for telling me about you…”

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for your wonderful performance at our wedding. Although I feel like I barely heard any of it with all that was going on, I am assured by my guests that it was beautiful and they all enjoyed it. Of course that which I remember was perfect and I am so glad that I chose to have you play during both the ceremony and the cocktail hour. And I certainly appreciate that you were able to set up and play without any direction from me, thereby eliminating that stress for me. You were very professional and we would certainly recommend you to others. And of course I would love to have you play for us again in the future.
Thanks again for your assistance in choosing music and your patient helpfulness.”

“Wow! They absolutely exceeded my expectations and made the day more memorable than I could have expected. I didn’t realize how much I would appreciate their organization and willingness to work independently until the day actually came. They showed up on time, ready to go, and moved about as needed. I didn’t have to direct them once. They knew exactly what to do. I remember going about all the events of the day thinking… what is that beautiful music I hear…. and there they were playing song after song….it was like a dream! We deeply appreciated their incredible and over the top customer service, flexibility in working with our schedule, and willingness to take things into their own hands to make sure they day went well. The process was so effortless because of Sherry. The music and talent was divine. Those songs keep playing in my head and I will always cherish their amazing music as a crucial memory of the special day. When I had originally booked them, my husband thought strings would be silly, stuffy, and too much. By the end of the day, he was surprised at how wrong he was! He kept complimenting the beauty of their music and how special their music made our ceremony. Talk about feeling so special — hearing their music during the ceremony made us all cry! It could not have been so perfect without them! Thank you again for your beautifully classic strings!”

“Thank you for making our wedding so treasurable. You sounded very beautiful. Everyone came to me saying how beautiful you sound and that it was a great idea to have you at our wedding. You played every song that I wanted and they were perfect for the occasion. I will definitely recommend you to others. Also, thanks for working with me on some of the songs that weren’t meant to be played during the ceremony. You were perfect for my wedding. Again, thank you for everything.” Sincerely, Guy and Shala Louis, June 7, 2003 wedding
“Thank you for coordinating the quartet and delivering a perfect performance on our very special day. We want to especially thank you for going beyond the call of duty. It was truly a pleasure to work with you.” Janet Lie Tien , July 7, ’02
“I wanted to write you a note to express to you how “Heavenly” the quartet sounded at our wedding! The music was so important to me and walking down the aisle to the glorious sound of strings was a dream come true! We received so many compliments on the beautiful music and our priest made a very special compliment on how beautiful it sounded. Thank you so much for the priceless memories of beautiful music…Memories that are sure to last a lifetime! P. S. We have friends getting married in April and the first thing they asked us after the ceremony was for your name and number.”
Sincerely, Kelly and Michael Paul, August 16, ’97
