  • We had our wedding at the Semper Fi chapel at the National Museum of the Marine Corps and the music in this space was amazing. The violinist was skilled, professional, and helpful. Additionally, she was very flexible... a last minute hiccup during the ceremony was gracefully managed by her as she seamlessly transitioned from one song to another so that the guests were completely unaware. We were very happy with her performance and would definitely recommend her to anyone!

  • We hired Melodious strings to play the music for our ceremony and I am so glad we did! It ended up pouring rain all day and we had to relocate our small group to a nearby pavilion. Despite the last minute location change they were already set up and playing when we arrived. They are a very talented group and played each of the songs beautifully. Kate was also great to work with. She responds very quickly and the packages they offer are very reasonably priced. We chose the string duet package with a cello & violin duo. They play an extensive list of songs so you will have no problem finding something you like! Don't even think twice about hiring this group because you will be so happy you did!

Everyone in our wedding party complimented us on the beautiful music and Melodious Strings is definitely deserving of our 5-star rating. Thank you so much Kate and Erin 🎵

  • Kate is phenomenal. She did a beautiful job helping us coordinate the processional, recessional and working with my sister on a duet to the song "At Last" before the processional began. Kate truly went above and beyond to accommodate our requests, to arrive early to practice with my sister and had so many wonderful suggestions to coordinating the music for our wedding. She was a true delight.

  • We hired the violin and cello duo for our outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. Our experience was nothing short of incredible! From the beginning conversation, Kate and her team were so quick to respond and were so flexible with changes and helping us figure out logistics. The day of the wedding, the music was so breathtaking! Awesome song selection and performed perfectly!!

  • Choosing Melodious Strings for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made - it's been over a year, and we often talk about how beautiful they made our wedding! We were planning a small wedding at Christmas at the Inn at Vint Hill, and even before we had the venue, we knew we wanted a string ensemble. But we also had some songs in mind that didn't seem like traditional wedding songs. We found Melodious Strings and the entire experience was wonderful - they allowed us to have 3 songs outside of their large repertoire at no cost, which helped make our ceremony so unique. They were so flexible even with short-notice, and a wedding near Christmas when everyone can be so busy and booked. Working with Kate was easy, and she was able to help us create our perfect playlist, which was really fun to plan since they had such a wide-range of genres - even Christmas music. Kate also helped me with song suggestions, which was appreciated. And on the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly... Read more

  • Melodious Strings was a dream to work with - we hired a quartet for our ceremony and cocktail hour! This group went above and beyond for us - I requested religious hymns that I only had choral arrangements for and they not only arranged the music for the quartet itself, but personally worked with our church's piano/organ player to arrange her ensemble pieces as well! We were planning our wedding from across the country and this group made the entire experience so easy! They arrived extra early to the church to practice with our pianist/organist since they had never played together before. The music was beautiful - everything that we had imagined! We got so many compliments from our guests about their talent, professionalism, and kindness! The absolute best!

    Hello Candi! Thank you so much for your kind words. We truly enjoyed putting together your special music program with you with Judy-it was a pleasure! Many congratulations to you and Ted!! Many hugs and love from Melodious Strings. Best, -Kate & Melodious Strings

  • I can't say enough positive things about how lovely our ceremony music was- they are truly amazing!!! Katherine was excellent to work with throughout the entire process!! Super responsive, played requested songs and added in a few of their own to blend and did a beautiful job with everything! I am a music junkie and DJ at heart so my ceremony music was very important and I was impressed with all the genre's they can play. I HIGHLY recommend them for your wedding, I received so many compliments on how beautiful our music was!! 10 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I heard Kate play at one of my bridesmaid’s wedding and was so impressed that this was the first vendor I booked for my wedding! I booked their string quartet for our garden ceremony and outdoor cocktail hour. Kate was fabulous to work with along the way. She responded to my emails immediately, and always let me know when she received a payment. I had very specific song choices for our ceremony music, and the execution of the pieces was absolute perfection. We also gave them suggestions for the cocktail hour, and there was nothing that they couldn’t play. It seems as though if you ask for something, they can play it! Guests commented on how lovely the music was, especially during the cocktail hour. Having the string quartet as part of our wedding really added to the elegance factor that we wanted. If you are looking for live musicians for your wedding, I highly recommend working with this talented group!

    Hello Lauren! Thank you so much for your wonderful and kind review. You and your family were wonderful to work with, and you have such awesome taste in music; we loved performing the repertoire you selected! Thank you again for giving us the honor of performing for your's and Andrew's special day, and much hugs and love to you and your family from all of Melodious Strings! :)

  • Melodious Strings did a fantastic job with the music at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! They play beautiful music and it was such a nice touch to the wedding. What was also great about them is that they have a wide variety of songs in their repertoire from classical all the way to contemporary! Furthermore, Kate was so great and easy to work with throughout the planning phase. I highly recommend Melodious Strings to all brides out there!

  • Kate from Melodious Strings was one of the best vendors I worked with in the planning process. Whenever I had a question, she always got back to me straight away and was always so kind! She and her group are willing to learn anything that you want to hear. The ceremony music was beyond lovely. I honestly wish I had booked them to play during cocktail hour as well!

  • I can't recommend Melodious Strings enough. Kate was so organized, professional, prompt, and accommodating in all of her communication leading up to our wedding ceremony. I didn't have strong music preferences for our ceremony, but I knew I wanted a solo violinist to play classical music, including Pachelbel's Canon in D for my processional. With the roughly 5000 wedding-related decisions I needed to make, I really appreciated the thorough, user-friendly questionnaire Kate sent out and that there were options to request certain kinds of music instead of specific songs. It saved me a lot of time. Additionally, Kate confirmed every last details to set Jamie, the day-of solo violinist, up to meet our expectations. Jamie did an incredible job, and I would recommend both of them and Melodious Strings without reservation. Thank you, Jamie and Kate!

    Liza, thank you so much for your kind words!! Jamie and I loved assisting you with your ceremony music for your big day. Many many congratulations to you and Nate!!!

  • I'm so glad we chose Melodious Strings to set the tone for our ceremony. Kate was a pleasure to work with from the start, and she helped us craft a song list that spanned genres and styles. She was kind, thoughtful, and responsive to our sometimes tricky requests. The musicians are so talented, and they went above and beyond to translate our preferences to a reality. I feel very lucky to have worked with them.

    Hello Nina! Thank you so much for your kind words. You were awesome to work with, and we're very happy that we had the opportunity to perform the new and exciting repertoire you requested!! :)
