  • From our first initial e-mail to our wedding day on 10/11/19, Songhea from Parkwest Strings has been one of our favorite vendors to work with by far. Songhea was extremely professional, personable, and thoughtful when helping plan our ceremony music. Our guests are still talking about how phenomenal the string trio sounded! We wanted contemporary music played during the ceremony and Songhea and her fellow musicians went above and beyond. Thank you for making our wedding ceremony so memorable!

  • Songhea and the rest of the band were absolutely amazing. They were so flexible and accepted every single one of our song requests... they even did a custom arrangement for us at no additional charge. They were so easy to work with leading up to the event and on the day of they were perfect. Love, love, love, love these guys!

  • We had Parkwest Strings play at our wedding ceremony on July 14th, 2018. First, they were very easy to work with, and the booking and billing process was quick and simple. We only needed them for our ceremony, but they were willing to travel between ceremony and reception. They played our requested selections beautifully and worked with the organist to play parts of the catholic mass, even though they weren't required to play those pieces. The string trio added to the enchanting atmosphere we were looking for and helped make our special day that more amazing. Finally, we found their price very affordable and within our budget. We definitely recommend them.

  • We had a Sunday brunch wedding, and had a string trio play for both our ceremony and reception—they were absolutely wonderful!! The music was beautiful, and we got many compliments on the ambiance their music provided. The trio was very professional and flexible, and moved inside during brunch, then back outside for the reception when we played yard games. They were a perfect addition to our wedding day!

  • If you are considering using a string trio or quartet for your ceremony and/or cocktail hour you should definitely go with Parkwest Strings. From the beginning they were very easy to work with. We booked the string trio for our ceremony and cocktail hour. It made our ceremony much more unique and romantic. It was also great to pick from their wide variety of songs and customize the music for our event! This allowed us to use modern music for our ceremony in a way that was still wedding appropriate. The trio performed beautifully and was on cue with every song change. We highly recommend Parkwest Strings!

  • We hired the string quartet for our ceremony and cocktail hour and they were great! Songhea was very professional to work with and the musicians played beautifully. They also have an impressive repertoire of classical and modern songs to choose from. Perfect for an outdoor garden wedding!

  • I would recommend Parkwest Strings to anyone looking for a string trio/quartet for their wedding. Songhea was an absolute joy to work with and is so flexible. The music was definitely one of the top 3 highlights of the day! I was in a really bad car accident the day before the wedding and as a result other things ran behind...including my arrival to the ceremony on the morning of the wedding (we were planning on transporting my parents to the wedding but our car was completely wrecked...had to do some very last minute re-arranging). I can't tell you what a comfort it was amidst all of the chaos to know that my guests were provided with beautiful music as they waited for our arrival...it was so soothing to everyone. Parkwest Strings, you were one of those who saved the day for us. I can't thank you enough!

  • They were amazing! Songhea is clearly a very talented musician and she conducted herself very professionally. The strings sounded beautiful during our ceremony; we couldn't be happier! I strongly recommend them if you want to add a touch of high class to your event.

  • Parkwest Strings was amazing. Not only did they fulfill my request of playing the song Home by Edward Sharpe, but their music and demeanor were more than we could have asked for. The music was the best addition to our ceremony and I'm greatful that we used them!

  • I could not be more happy with my decision to hire Parkwest Strings to provide the music at my ceremony and cocktail hour. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a 4 string quartet. I wish I had taped the ceremony because all I have are my memories of how amazing they sounded.

  • I found most of the vendors for my May wedding online using yelp, wedding wire, the knot, etc. I scoured reviews and hoped the best! And with Songhea and a Parkwest Strings-- that's what I got. It was a great and easy experience working with Songhea from start to finish. We chose a wide variety (think everything from Snoop Dogg to Tom Petty). And they could play everything! Just one tip: make sure they can be heard. Our crowd drowned them out during cocktail hour.

  • Parkwest String was one of the most beautiful quartets - they truly made the ceremony the elegant and classy theme I was going for. All of my guests were blown away by their performance & I received countless compliments on the music and how it made the ceremony extra special. Songhea was great to work with and she even let me pick my own music at no extra cost - she works with only the most quality professional quartets and you could tell in the way they played the songs for the first time - I have nothing but compliments and good reviews all the way around and I would use this quartet again.
