  • Arranging for the ceremony music with Sarah from Serenade St. Louis was one of the easiest parts of the planning process. This was a great value for one hour of the duo (violin and cello). The musicians sounded beautiful and added the perfect touch to our ceremony!

  • We used the string duo (violin and cello). I really don’t remember much of the music, but everyone said it was beautiful. They had a pretty good selection of music to choose from, and we had no problem finding music we liked for our ceremony (we wanted something classical, but not the typical Canon in D or Wedding March, etc). They were pretty easy to keep in contact with before the wedding.

  • I booked Serenade St. Louis for my wedding after hearing them play for several other friends' events. Sarah of Serenade St. Louis helped make our wedding ceremony a beautiful, memorable experience. We had a country theme, so wanted some not so traditional ceremony music. We decided to go with solo violin. Sarah worked with me to find some beautiful fiddle and folk tunes for our ceremony and was always available to answer my many questions about the music. The day of the wedding, Sarah arrived early, confirmed the details of the ceremony and promptly set up and got to work. The day was very very HOT, but we were able to put her in the shade as requested, and she played professionally in the heat like a champ! So many people raved to me afterwards about how beautiful the music was and perfect for the ceremony. Working with Serenade St. Louis was one of the few stress-free experiences I had while wedding planning! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. While the solo musician... Read more

  • Wow, what an amazing touch to our ceremony. Serenade St. Louis truly made walking down the aisle even more special. The string quartet was absolutely beautiful and everyone in attendance was in awe. They were so flexible and professional in the planning stages and working with them on the logistics was so easy. This was one of my favorite parts of the ceremony because it added such a unique and gorgeous element. Every song was incredible and I have even added the songs to my iPhone so that I can forever listen to their phenomenal music.

  • We were super happy with Serenade--Sarah was easy to work with and helped us with a couple of special requests (Edelweiss and some Beatles tunes). I didn't hear them as much as I would have liked since I was busy, you know, getting ready, but my friends told me they sounded terrific! I also thought they were a terrific value--compared to what I paid for most of my vendors, I really thought I got a deal for the quartet. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to my friends and family.

  • FANTASTIC is all I can say about Serenade Strings! Ranya Iqbal, the company's founder, is beyond professional and amazing! Even when I requested music that was not listed in the repertoire, it was done to perfection! The musicians were absolutely amazing. It was truly one of the most beautiful sounds I've ever heard! Thank you Serenade Strings for being a part of my special day!

  • It was a little pricy for only an hour and a half, but the pricing was more competitive than other's I researched. My husband and I were able to select all of the music ourselves for the entire ceremony. He was easy to work with, always got back to us when we had a question, and helped create a wonderful atmosphere at our wedding.I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone searching for a musician.

They provide a website for you to listen to clips of the selection they play which may choosing the music so much easier.

  • Serenade Strings was much more reasonably priced than other strings groups we looked at. They were professional and flexible to work with. We received many compliments on how well they did during our ceremony!

  • Our musicians were members of the St. Louis symphony and it showed. They were phenomenal and clearly have plenty of experience playing weddings -- knowing when to stop playing, etc. They even arranged and learned two pieces of music not on their reprotoire that we really wanted. Communication leading up to our wedding was a bit spotty, but understand that the woman in charge also plays her own concerts, so she's not always sitting in her office. It took a while to hammer out every detail, but the week-of and day-of it was no hassle. They added such a special touch to our ceremony and were reasonable in comparison with other string trios/quartets on the market. Two thumbs up!

  • Overall, Serenade Strings was great! They helped me with my song selections to fit me and the groom and were very professional. We hired the cello and guitar duo for the ceremony and they sounded so beautiful in the church. Couldn't be happier with their service!

  • Great! On time, hit every cue. Changed their address and didn't advise, when I tried to mail payment it was returned and I freaked that they went out of business!! It sometimes takes a day or two to get an email response.

  • This is the only bad review I have to write for my wedding. These guys can play beautifully, but they know nothing of professionalism and what it means to be a business. They left over an hour early because it was 60 degrees outside and said it was "too cold" to play. If I had known they were going to be that particular about temperature, I would not have booked them. The worst part of the whole thing is that when I tried to contact them after the wedding, they won't return my messages. So, I received bad service and was then ignored. I guess they got their money, so that's all that matters? Not in the long run, I will nay-say this business to anyone who will listen.

    responded with the following comments.

    The Musicians played the ceremony despite the fact that the temperature dropped 10 degrees lower than our required minimum temperature. After discussing another solution, the bride decided that she wasn't willing to work with us. The musicians had no choice but to stop playing after the ceremony was over. The requirements for us to play were clearly stated in writing, explained verbally over several occasions, and were agreed to in writing.
