  • I recently had the pleasure of working with Columbia River Strings at the Art of Weddings Venue Crawl and I cannot say enough great things about them. Everyone at the event was constantly remarking on how incredibly talented they are. They were amazing to work with and I would recommend them to anyone who needs music at their wedding.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thanks for inviting us to play this year Rachael. It was a pleasure working with you, and we much look forward to collaborating on more events.

  • Hired Columbia River Strings to play my sisters wedding ceremony and cocktail hour on September 28, 2019 at the . I provided music from my end and played guitar. I was happy how quickly and proficient the musicians were after 1 hour of rehearsal with the full group. Highly recommend the group. Chris was our lead musician and was excellent. I was blown away by their ability to improvise and jam along with our 4 chord guitar pop songs without sheet music in front of them. These guys play at a professional level. When I get married I will hire them again for my wedding ceremony. Highly recommended.

  • These guys are literally THE BEST! Everyone absolutely loved them. They're extremely professional and very talented musicians. Beyond what we could have imagined and probably one of our favorite part of our wedding. They really turned the big day into a classy, traditional wedding all while playing songs we all knew and loved. Worth every penny.

  • Booking the Columbia River Strings quartet was one of the best decisions we made for our outdoor wedding. Our only regret is that we should have hired them for a longer session, as they were just fantastic! There’s a great variety of music to choose from and you can’t beat the price. From the beginning, it was apparent they have a very high level of professionalism and Rebecca had some very appreciated suggestions for us as this was our first time planning what scores we wanted to have played during the pre-ceremony. Columbia River Strings added a classy yet fun element to our wedding, and honestly we would look for any excuse to hire them again.

  • I am so glad I chose to have this string band come to our wedding. They were fantastic. They were very easy to book and pay for online, they showed up on time and dressed professionally. But best of all, they played BEAUTIFULLY! I had them play for the welcome 30 minutes before ceremony, the actual ceremony and then the cocktail hour after. They were seriously the best. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. My guests loved them and it was really a nice and intimate touch to the ceremony. I can't wait to get back the video of the wedding so I can hear them play again! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • Columbia River Strings played beautifully during our wedding ceremony. Their repertoire includes a variety of classical and contemporary compositions, and they were very accommodating with our requests for specific compositions. They were very responsible and professional during the planning stage, and performed perfectly on our wedding day. I highly recommend their services.

  • As those planning a wedding know, during this high stress time it is extremely important to have open communication with your vendor and to feel confidence in their ability to deliver. Every correspondence was answered, and when the big day came the trio played beautifully. Their talent was such a sweet touch at our ceremony and greatly appreciated by us and our guests. I will never forget walking down the aisle to my now husband as the song I chose colored our memory. If you need timeless music and reliable professionalism, look no further.

  • It was a pleasure working with Columbia Strings. Rebecca responded quickly to my emails and answered all our questions in a timely manner. We received lots compliments from family and friends attending our daughter's wedding on how much they enjoyed hearing live music as opposed to a DJ playing during the ceremony. The musicians added a touch of class to our event. Thank you.

  • Columbia River Strings was amazing! They worked with me to surprise my bride during our ceremony with an accompanied song. Their repertoire easily made a set list of modern hits, including some of my movie and video game favorites! I cannot recommend enough!

  • I can’t say enough about the Columbia River Strings. They truly elevated our ceremony to another level. The musicians are so talented, and each and every piece they played was absolutely gorgeous. It set the tone perfectly. There were even a few pieces we requested that they weren’t able to play as a string duo (which we had), that they surprised us with! It made the day that much more special to know that they put that effort in. In any event, everyone loved having them there, and they were incredibly friendly when I went to thank them for playing. I cannot recommend them enough! Amazing talent that takes an otherwise unforgettable day and makes it perfect.

  • Columbia River Strings was awesome! They were very professional and accommodated all my requests. My sister sang with them, and easily rehearsed with them before the ceremony to provide beautiful music. They also provided us a DJ (DJ Mandy) who was AWESOME! She made some great last minute changes to make sure my sister was mic'ed properly, plus helped out during the dinner with announcing tables and setting up audio equipment for toasts. She also put on great music for dancing, responding well to our weird group of millenials mixed with a bunch of Gen Xers who all ended up loving the 90s hip hop she was playing!

  • These guys were great and added a unique flair to our wedding. Even though they didn't play every song we requested, they played different songs that fit in to the genre (video games/movie soundtracks) that were not options on their songlist online. All of our guests had good things to say during and after the ceremony, we would definitely recommend them to anyone else!

  • We had a pianist and 2 strings - they were wonderful and worked with our cantor before the ceremony and even on the spot rearranged music for the Bride's processional! We could not have been more pleased!
