Angelica Strings performed at my wedding this past weekend and they did an amazing job! We hired them for our ceremony and cocktail hour after listening to the music samples on their website. Cheryl, the main contact for the group and I think owner, was very flexible with our song choices even if it wasn't part of their normal repertoire. They were very professional from our very first contact to our wedding day. I would say their price is very reasonable. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for live musicians! Hearing them in person was just sublime!

What a beautiful touch to our ceremony. I am so glad I decided to have Angelica Strings. The music was absolutely beautiful. They stayed in contact with me throughout the process and were very professional and very talented. I wish I would have had an opportunity to meet the musicians in person, but I could hear them and they were amazing. Thank you for the great memories!

When I first found Angelica Strings on this website I knew I wanted to hire them but didn't think I could afford it. Cheryl, the owner, and I had a great conversation, and she was able to find creative ways to work within my budget so that I was able to afford to have a string duet playing during my ceremony.

Cheryl was a complete professional from day 1 and I never felt like I had to worry about anything, which was great :) At the ceremony itself, the musicians were even better than I could have imagined and Cheryl's help with song choices and styles for the duet turned out absolutely perfect.

I was so, so glad I went ahead and called her and so happy with the gorgeous music at the ceremony. Thank you Angelica Strings!!

I had a strings duo for our outdoor wedding ceremony on the golf course. They arrived early and did a wonderful job. In booking angelica strings, I worked with Cheryl and she was always very professional and helpful - she even went above and beyond and helped me with finishing touches to our wedding program. She was just a doll to work with- I do recommend angelica strings.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING. I can't say enough great things about Angelica Strings. Cheryl is an absolute joy to work with and the music was incredible. During the wedding planning process I worked a full time job as I tried to deal with a lot of vendors, so I didn't have to waste. I can't express how easy Cheryl was to work with. She answered all of my questions patiently and thoroughly. Most importantly, the music on our wedding day was amazing! I really enjoyed working with them and I will be recommending them to all of my friends.

I hired Angelica Strings after they performed at my older sister's wedding, and am so glad I did! They are talented and were able to play everything - from traditional Jewish music (with our Cantor singing along), to classical music, to Don't Stop Believin'! They helped set the stage for our ceremony and were great entertainment at our cocktail hour. Cheryl was so easy to work with - it was so easy booking them and selecting the songs!

I was referred to Angelica Strings by my wedding planner -- Cheryl was responsive and easy to work with from the beginning. We worked together on many of my more obscure music requests, and on the day of the wedding, Angelica Strings surprised me with finding the music and learning a song that they had previously said wasn't in their repertoire. I was thrilled to hear the music at the recessional (on top of being married). The guests all raved at how good the strings sounded and at the range of music they were able to play (from Journey to Disney to Sound of Music to Classical). Given that many of our pieces were opera arias transformed for strings, Angelica made the pieces sound absolutely breathtaking -- hearing the processional song outside the doors for my father and me to walk in made me pause and take it all in. In response to an earlier post, I found Angelica Strings to be very competitive for the number of hours and musicians offered alone, not even counting the extra effort for more "unusual" music choices. Thank you so very much for making such a special part of my day even better and going above and beyond!

They were a bit more expensive than the other, but we definitely got what we paid for. Extremely talented musicians, but more than that, they catered to our needs. We were already very impressed with Angelica Strings, but when they played "Star Wars" when we cut the cake, that took the cake =) Thank you so much for making the day special. May the force be with you!!!

Angelica strings played beautifully for our January 2011 wedding. They were somewhat expensive for the quintent ($900 for 1 hour). My now husband really wanted a quintent for the ceremony and he really enjoyed it. Sadly, as the bride, I wasn´t able to enjoy the music much as I was in the back during most of the play time. I think the music added some sophistication to the ceremony and guests enjoyed the music!

Just wish I could have spent more time listening to their music; all I heard was the music I walked down the aisle to, Canon D, but it sounded great! Others who attended said the music was lovely. The group arrived on time, set up and played as had been discussed. They were very easy to work with and did a great job, Cheryl was the contact person.

I would definitey recommend Angelica Strings for ceremony and cocktail hour music. They were extremely professional and Cheryl was a pleasure to work with. Although we didn't get to meet in person until the wedding day, I felt very comfortable in speaking with Cheryl over the phone and getting her input as to what would work for the ceremony. I also gave them a piece of music to play for the ceremony that was new to their repetoire and they played it just beautifully! Although I didn't have a chance to hear them at the cocktail hour (taking pictures!) I heard from many others that they played an amazing variety of music and were very good. They were a true success!

One of the easiest vendors we hired for the wedding. We met with them once and brought the song slections, and they filled in with some beautiful songs. They just seemed to know what we liked. As the bride, I didn't get to hear them play much at the ceremony, but by all accounts it was beautiful. Besides being talented (I did hear them play at the initial meeting), they are extremely professional. Some vendors we used didn't really have their act together, so we felt like we had to constantly check in and confirm, but we never had this problem with Angelic Strings.

We had Angelica Strings provide a string quartet do the ceremony music for our wedding. To be honest, as the bride, I unfortunately don't really remember hearing them at all because I was so preoccupied with everything else! But all my guests said they were great and that it really added a classic touch to the wedding than having your typical canned music. They were a little bit more expensive then other string groups I had looked at before them but my contact, Cheryl Gates, handled my requests personally and professionally. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to add a little bit of class to their wedding.

cheryl with angelica strings was extremely helpful, even humming out song suggestions over the phone when i didn't know what was appropriate. angelica strings showed up on time and knew when to queue the music by just looking at a program and communicating with the event coordinator. i never met them face to face... i actually feel badly that i never met angelica strings in person (although i saw them on the loggia), but they did such a great job, without direction.
