  • Seth played at my bridal shower and did a great job and so it only made sense that he'd play at my wedding as well. Seth was extremely flexible letting us book him only 3 weeks before the wedding (our other musicians fell through). He and his crew already knew how to play all the songs that we requested. I had no doubt in my mind that they would be great and they were! Seth is so nice and so easy to communicate with. Seth's demeanor makes you feel at ease about the entire experience, which is so nice when you're stressing about everything else when planning for your wedding. I highly recommend Seth to anyone and everyone!

  • My husband is a sucker for string instruments, so instead of having a DJ play music during the ceremony, we opted to have a violinist. Ideally we would have loved to have a quartet or something along those lines, but our budget was a little tight. But we have no complaints and having Seth play the violin as a soloist was perfect for our day. I found Seth here on Weddingwire and his reviews and samples blew us away. I contacted him and he responded quickly answering my unnecessary number of questions. I loved the fact that he is open to playing pretty much any song you could ask of him and that he plays nontraditional music for ceremonies. I have never been a fan of the traditional wedding music so this was definitely a plus. I definitely felt that he cared about what I wanted and was very open to making our ceremony music match our vision. Seth was very organized and finalized all of our details prior to the wedding. He was extremely professional and he so talented. My husband even sai... Read more

  • I worked with Seth to get everything set and planned and he was great at responding and working with me. (None of my music was traditional, as we had music from Legend of Zelda, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Game of Thrones) Seth sent Michelle to come play the flute for us and it was lovely! Everyone loved the music!

  • We hired Seth to play during our ceremony and he was amazing! Seth was incredibly easy to work with and is a very talented musician! He took the time to discuss and walk through some of the song choices prior to the wedding and was very flexible when I changed my mind at the last minute! On the day of, the music was beautiful and I couldn't have asked for more. I highly recommend booking Seth!

  • Seth was probably the easiest vendor I worked with for my wedding. He was super professional, personable, and so very kind throughout the entire planning process. I told him what songs I wanted to be played at what times during my ceremony, and the musicians were on their game. Everyone commented how beautiful the music was during my ceremony, and of course, the only time I cried was during the lighting of the Unity Candle when the musicians provided accompaniment for 2 of my husband's friends who sang "The Prayer." It was absolutely beautiful. Seth either had all my songs in his repertoire or he arranged them himself. Very talented, very professional, very reasonably priced, and worth every penny. Thank you, Seth! :D

  • Seth made our wedding ceremony surreal. All our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the music was. Seth was great from the beginning making sure to ask the right questions and guide us through the music selection. He answered all my questions in a timely manner. Seth was punctual and did everything we agreed. I would recommend Seth to all my friends and family for their events! Thank you Seth!!

  • Seth played for our wedding ceremony and it was amazing! Everyone that was there kept telling me how much they loved the ceremony music. Seth was super helpful in providing music suggestions and was able to put arrangements together for the music I selected. I even had a last minute (4 days before the wedding) request and he was super flexible and was able to accommodate. If you need a professional string quartet, definitely use Seth!

  • My Partner and I got married on Saturday, April 8, 2017 and we hired Seth to play at our Wedding. We both were honor that Seth said that he would play and brought joy to the both of us. After meeting Seth, we knew that he was the one. So we recommend to anyone that going to Tie the Knot, hire Seth, he will make your day special.

  • Seth did an absolute incredible job at my husband and I's wedding! Leading up to the wedding Seth was so helpful in providing suggestions of songs that I choose to play for the ceremony. Then on the big day, he first began playing in our venue's lobby which was so elegant and then played for our entire ceremony. He is so talented and I would without a doubt hire him for another event!

  • Seth VanEmbden is a fabulous viola player and pianist. He played viola for my wedding recently and everyone that heard his playing loved it. They said he had a fabulous touch and his intonation was spot on among many other things. If you are looking for a musician for your wedding...look no further. Seth VanEmbden is your guy!

  • I got so many compliments on Seth's performance at our wedding ceremony on December 18, 2016. He was so easy to work with; playing all the traditional wedding music that we requested- Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring, Canon in D, Ode to Joy, etc. He also even went out of his way to research pieces to play to represent my husband's heritage. Seth arrived early, was dressed perfectly to match the holiday theme, and he set himself up in the perfect spot to be out of the way in the small chapel while everyone could hear his beautiful music. Seth is considerate and accommodating, is professional and friendly! And of course, he plays BEAUTIFULLY.

  • Seth is a fantastic violinist! For our wedding, he played prelude music while guests entered the church, the entrance music for the mothers and bridesmaids, and he played Ave Maria while we presented flowers to Mary (it was a Catholic wedding). Our guests raved about how beautifully he played. One of the things that really stands out was that our wedding had a theme - the reception was Disney-themed. Because of this, we wanted to throw a subtle hint of Disney into the ceremony, so the prelude music that he played was a compilation of Disney love songs. We purchased a book for him, pointed out the ones we definitely wanted played, and let him have free rein of the rest. Any musician can pick familiar songs from their repertoire and make them sound beautiful, but Seth took songs that he wasn't used to playing and made them his own. The other, more traditional wedding music that he did for us was beautiful as well. He really has a great talent for his instrument and puts a special touch t... Read more
