  • Stephanie and Fretless Strings were amazing at our wedding. My only regret is that as the bride I didn’t have the opportunity to sit and listen to them the whole time they played. The songs I heard during the cocktail hour were amazing – including some special requests that they had just added to their repertoire for this wedding. And, when I heard them start to play “What a Wonderful World” as my bridesmaids walked in, I teared up from the beauty of it. I heard many compliments from my guests as well, including relatives who are musicians themselves. Also, they were the best vendor I worked with from the perspective of feeling assured everything would work out well before the wedding. Stephanie's responses were fast and full of warmth. Finally, hiring them is more economical than you may think! If you are watching your music budget, I highly suggest hiring them (which will cost you less than most DJs), since you can easily Spotify your own playlist for dancing later bu... Read more

  • Stephanie was such a pleasure to work with. She was flexible and understanding (Corona Bride here!) She was thoughtful throughout all our communication as was more than happy to accommodate us when we had to downsize our wedding. I'm so glad we decided to still have a string duo - it made the day so special and they are also sooo talented!! Our party of 8 raved about them all weekend!

    Yasmin, you were such a pleasure to work with as well! We're so happy we could still find a way to play a part in your beautiful ceremony and cocktail hour despite the changes we all had to make. Thank you for your trust!

  • We wanted our wedding to be super formal, but still fun and not stuffy. Fretless Strings was the perfect addition to accomplish that. The classical sound of the string instruments paired with pop and rock songs was a huge hit. It didn’t take our guests long to realize they weren’t playing your usual classic music and they loved it. Working with them was so easy. Stephanie was incredibly nice and responsive, and booking with them was so quick and easy. They really made our day something very special and unique and we couldn’t be happier. The only challenging part is being the bride or groom and trying to enjoy it fully and still talk with all your guests. I hope I have a chance to attend someone else’s wedding where Fretless Strings is playing!

  • Working with Fretless Music was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! I am not a sentimental or overly romantic person, but - even for me - words can't describe how special it was to have live string music walking down the aisle. Fretless played for our ceremony and cocktail hour and just about every guest complimented how wonderful their music was. It really established the atmosphere. We had Fretless play mostly contemporary music with a sprinkling of classical, and everything they played was delightful. They also adjusted the pace of my processional to the appropriate speed for the moment (Sweet Child 'O Mine - which is so beautiful on strings). They did a fantastic job with everything and I can't imagine my wedding any other way. For any bride wondering if you should splurge on a string ensemble - my recommendation would be yes, absolutely yes - and I can't recommend Fretless Music enough. Even my husband (who was quite frugal during the wedding planning process) said... Read more

    You were also an absolute joy to work with, Monisola! Being a musician yourself, it means to much to know how happy you are with how everything went. Congratulations again on a beautiful and unforgettable ceremony!

  • Fretless did an amazing job playing during our ceremony and cocktail hour! Stephanie was so easy to work with throughout the process and they have a great set of songs ready to go, both modern and classical. The music itself was perfect and we received so many compliments from our guests!

  • Stephanie was a pleasure to work with and we loved having you and crew play for our wedding! I wanted our ceremony music to be different then any other weeding and Fretless delivered! Our ceremony was supposed to be outside but mother nature had another plan. You and your team are true pros and handled the change with ease. I only wish I was able to hear you the entire hour you played!! It was such an amazing feeling to walk back down the isle to Blink 182's first date, one of our favorites. Thank you for making our special day that more memorable!

  • We hired Fretless as a string quartet to play for our indoor wedding ceremony. Stephanie was so kind, professional, and easy to work with! She helped the process go so smoothly. Their existing repertoire is great and they did a fantastic job preparing an additional piece we requested. The day-of was great! The musicians sounded beautiful and we received a lot of compliments on their performance from our guests. Working with Fretless was a breeze even with a slightly late ceremony start and we would recommend them to everyone!

  • Fretless music was the perfect addition to our outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour! The quartet music was beautiful and our guests loved it too! They made the vibe more elegant. They have a large repertoire of songs to chose from..it made it hard to pick just a handful since they all sound so beautiful! Stephanie was so easy to work with and very timely in her responses. Would definitely recommend Fretless for anyone considering string instruments for their wedding!

  • Fretless Music was an amazing addition to our wedding. They complemented our garden ceremony perfectly. Moreover, when one of our shuttles never arrived to bring half our guests and we had to start 45 min late, our other guests commented that the music was so pretty they didn’t even mind waiting for the ceremony to begin. Stephanie was super easy to work with and always responded timely.

  • Fretless Music and Stephanie Young were by far my favorite vendors to work with for our September wedding! Their website had tons of samples of their music to help us vet their quality – which, by the way, was outstanding. Her rates are great for her level of skill and professionalism. Stephanie was so kind and worked with us to make sure we had the perfect playlist to the wedding of our dreams. Her process and deadlines were thoughtful, respectful, and easy to follow. When we asked for a song not on her list, she was excited to learn it instead of forcing us into what she already knew. On our wedding day, I did not get the chance to speak with her, but I was overwhelmed by her and her team’s ability to make our ceremony the most beautiful moment of all time. Book Fretless Music! There is literally no easier vendor to work with for your wedding!

  • Stephanie and her trio were absolutely amazing at our wedding this past August. They have truly mastered their craft, and our guests are still talking about the music !! They were definitely the highlight of our wedding day, and we are so thankful we came across them! We will definitely book them again in the future! They were absolutely amazing !!

  • Stephanie was incredibly friendly and organized. They have a large repertoire to choose from including sound samples. These samples really helped us choose songs that we may not have thought of for our day. We went with their duo group and our wedding day was so special because of her(violin) and Tim(cello). They were prompt, professional, and sounded beautiful. They covered for us when we had to start late and were incredibly easy-going. I would definitely recommend Fretless to anyone wanting a beautiful wedding with a vendor you can rely on!

    Thank you so much, Connor! You were so wonderful to work with and as a fellow artist, we were so happy you enjoyed our music. Congratulations again!

  • We hired a string duo to play during our cocktail hour for our wedding. The booking process was very simple, and Stephanie was always prompt with responding to our emails and answering any questions we had. We were provided with an extensive list of songs from a large variety of genres to choose from. We were very pleased and would highly recommend Fretless Strings!
