  • Ranya was very nice and helpful. The music was just what we wanted and the musicians were professional and courteous. They played beautifully and gave our ceremony that extra touch that we wanted. They were reasonably priced and were very flexible with song choice. I would definitely recommend Serenade Strings to anyone who wants to add that extra something to their wedding reception!

  • Ranya was friendly and the music was great. You can even listen to samples of songs on the website. Easiest process of any vendor for our wedding.

  • I worked with Ranya at Serenade Strings for my wedding ceremony music. She provided a trio for my wedding and even worked with me on the price. She also made me a package so I could have music through the cocktail hour. I was even able to pay through Paypal! Maybe two months before my veremony she offered me an additional discount for paying early. she was really great. On the day of the wedding she and the rest of the trio showed up, set up and finished without issue. The whole thing was very professional and independant. even though i was prepared to do so, I didn't have to answer a lot of questions, or set things up for them. I had so many other things to worry about; it was great that they were experience enough to take care of themselves. i would definitely recommend their services.

  • I booked Serenade Strings for my October 2009 wedding. I booked a trio very last minute - probably three weeks before the wedding. I considered myself very lucky that they were available on such short notice. I liked working with Ranya - she was polite and responsive. Also, I typically find music a bit overwhelming and thought their website was really helpful with ceremony music suggestions - you should check it out even if you're not using them. My only complaint is that because our venue was in the suburbs, we didn't qualify for the ceremony special.

  • I'd highly recommend Serenade Strings. They were able to accommodate our rather unique music requests (jazz standard with the guitar & cello duo), and they did a great job setting just the right tone for both the ceremony and our cocktail hour.

  • I dealt with Ranya (musician and the group's director) to put together music selections for a stringed trio for my wedding. We had two violins and one cello, and they were just wonderful. There was also a quartet--and maybe even quintet--option. Ranya was experienced at doing weddings, and her website made song and instrument selection very easy. The musicians showed up on time, performed exactly as promised, and impressed everyone. I highly recommend Serenade Strings!

  • We hired them for ceremony music. While they weren't always the quickest to respond to emails, everything else was wonderful. We got a lot of compliments on their music. They were easy to work with and showed up promptly the day of the wedding. I would recommend them.

  • The music was nice, the booking process was easy (you can even use paypal to pay the company), the company easy to get ahold of through email . . . the only problem i had was on the wedding day! The musicians showed up 10 minutes later than was specified in the contract and paid for. I specifically had a problem with this because the contract i had to sign with serenade strings made it clear that the musicians needed 30 minutes to set up prior to start time for music. Once i noticed this, i added 1/2 hour to the reservation time for the wedding site. So i not only lost out on 10 minutes of music that should have been played while guests were being seated, i unnecessarily paid for time at an outdoor gazebo for supposed "set up" time. When i repeatedly contacted serenade strings about this problem, i got no response, not even an acknowledgement or an apology. i find the lateness unprofessional, and the handling of my problem unprofessional.

    responded with the following comments.

    The musicians arrive 15-20 minutes before the booked starting time. We do not need 30 minutes to set up because our instruments are acoustic. The group leader usually arrives a bit earlier to speak to the coordinator, but this is not considered set-up time. We will always explain or answer any questions regarding timing before or after signing the contract.
