  • We are so glad that we booked Stephen and Ana for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Prior to the wedding date we had a few calls with Stephen and it was clear that we were on the same page re: music style and choices. They were both very friendly, professional, and easy to work with. They showed up on time (even early I think) to set up and seamlessly transitioned from the ceremony site to the cocktail hour in a different location. They are both very talented performers. They played a good mix of classics and fun rock adaptations. Two of our favorite moments were when they played "Here Comes to Sun" for our processional and "Best Day of My Life" for our recessional. Most importantly our guests loved them! Several of our guests were dancing during cocktail hour! Thank you Royal Strings!

  • My husband and I hired the Royal Strings for our wedding in September of 2018. Definitely hire them for your ceremony and cocktail hour! They can play a variety of songs from the classics to modern hits. I chose a non-traditional song to walk down the aisle to and they nailed it. I can’t thank them enough! As an added bonus, we were pleasantly surprised with the price. They are very affordable. I would recommend the Royal Strings to anyone for their special day.

  • Royal Strings was amazing! I had them play during my ceremony and during the cocktail hour- I wish I could have had them play longer! So many of my guests came up to me to rave about them!

  • Stephen and Ana performed at our corporate holiday party on 12/14/17. They were absolutely professional in every way and just a perfect compliment to our festivities. The playlist was extensive and pleasing to all. We had an intimate setting and their music added the perfect touch to the ambience. In fact, we asked them to stay longer since everyone was having such a good time, and they were able to accommodate us. Five stars! Would love to use them again for any type of event.

  • Steve and the Royal Strings were amazing! Steve was super responsive when first booking and readily available for any questions that I had over the course of the last year. Everyone at our wedding was raving about them, the music selection they played and the ambiance they brought to our ceremony and cocktail hour. I wish I had another wedding to hire them for!

  • Our event was a business function for about 50 clients. Steve and his partner arrived and set up on time. A beautiful and successful event was made even better with the inclusion of these two talented musicians. We seek to hire them again for our next function come Feb 2018. Steve was very responsive to our emails back and forth and everything went off without a hitch.

  • Steve and his team at Royal Strings were amazing! I had asked them to play a Spanish Lullaby that my mother sang to me as a child while I walked down the aisle. All I had was a youtube video of the song to go off of - Steve said not a problem at all, don't worry, we will make it happen. And did he ever :) They sounded amazing and so classy. I have friends and family all raving about them still. I can not thank them enough for helping to make my special day that much more perfect.

  • STEVE was a pleasure to work with. He helped make our affair a rousing success, people up on the dance floor all thru the nite. And the pre party and ceremony music were perfect.

  • I met Steve at my cousins wedding a few years ago and knew that I had to have him play for my big day! We hired him and his violinist to play at our church ceremony and cocktail hour. I requested a special song for my processional down the aisle and Steve learned it no problem. Our guests have not stopped raving about how fabulous the Royal Strings were! Their music selection is so vast that it appeals to everyone! I highly recommend the Royal Strings to anyone who is looking for a professional, talented group that are passionate about what they do. They truly add such a special element to your day!

  • Royal Strings was amazing. We hired them to play for our ceremony and reception. Throughout the day, everyone said to me how wonderful the music was. The guests loved listening to the classic rock on the strings, and then when it was dance time, Steve DJ'd a bit for us. I would recommend them to everyone!

  • The live music during the ceremony was PERFECT, Steve & Carol played their music (guitar/violin) during the cocktail hour, then while we did introductions, Carol played the violin in conjunction with the song Steve played while the bridal party was introduced, and then while my husband & I did our first dance, she played the violin. Very nice touches!!! We had the usual complaints from our guests that the music was too loud or too quiet, Steve accommodated all of the requests with no problems. We had a special request for my dance with my father, we asked Steve to read a blurb while the intro of the song was playing & then fade into another song & he accommodated our request with no hesitation. He is very easy to work with, very personable & I would highly recommend him.

  • My husband and I used Royal Strings for all the music at our wedding- including ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, and we were highly impressed and happy with them! For the ceremony, the string duo play a variety of introductory/prelude tunes. They also learned a special song for the processional, which made my walk down the aisle very memorable. At cocktail hour, they played a variety of more modern and fun tunes. The one we got the most comments on was the "Game of Thrones" theme song. During the first part of the meal service, they started with more songs on strings and eventually switched to a DJ set of romantic classics and top 40 for dancing. Steve was wonderful to work with before and during the wedding, from finalizing the playlists to taking DJ requests at the event. He was very responsive through emails and also available to talk to by phone. Steve has a laid-back and easygoing personality, but was a consummate professional. His partner on violin was also very pleas... Read more

  • We are so happy with Royal Strings! They traveled out to Princeton, NJ for our wedding and played during our ceremony and cocktail hour. The music was beautiful and they even stayed late at the last minute when we decided to extend our cocktail hour. We highly recommend them!!

  • We just held a small wedding of 60 guests in a small but delicate vineyard at very east side of Long Island NY. The Royal Strings performed beautiful “Canon in D” and 2 customized songs for our outdoor ceremony and numerous euphonious and elegant songs for the subsequent reception. We highly recommend the Royal Strings to anyone who is in need of live string music. Responsiveness. Since we wanted to add some Chinese traditional elements into our wedding, we asked Steve and his partner to prepare 2 Chinese traditional songs for the ceremony use, and they picked them up very quickly and did capture the feelings we’d like to have. And, they coordinated perfectly with the officiant and the groomsmen during the entire event. Professionalism. They are punctual, clever, experienced, skillful and easy-going. They know how important to us this day is and they gave their best efforts to help cover all the uncovered and let our wedding proceed more smoothly and better. Also there is no d... Read more
