I can't say enough about how personable, wonderful and understanding Mitchell is, and the quartet was phenomenal! Completely professional and prompt, Columbia River Strings was one of the few parts of the wedding I never had to worry about once the plan was set. Wonderful! I was truly sad that I didn't have the time to just sit there and listen to them!

Of all the vendors we interacted with for our wedding, Columbia River Strings was the most professional in terms of responsiveness. When you're in the planning stage, it is very frustrating when you can't get ahold of a vendor. Almost every time I called, someone answered or called me back within the 1/2 hour. Aside from the business professionalism, the actual music was divine. They created a heightened, elegant atmosphere that made everyone feel lucky to be there. I am beyond pleased with the result. They are A++

When we contacted Columbia River Strings to provide music for the ceremony portion of our daughter's wedding, we went totally on faith by what we saw on their website as we were planning the wedding long distance. We were very pleased from the first time we received an e-mail when we first contacted them with their responsiveness and ease of communication. They day of the ceremony was stress free and their sound is beautiful. Their website has many popular selections to listen to. Bride and groom chose all the music and they also can play many selections that are not listed. (As mother of the bride, tissues necessary!).

The Columbia River Strings exceeded expectations in every way. Not only are they fabulous musicians with a wonderful repertoire, they know how they fit in with a wedding ceremony to make it a memorable and enjoyable experience for all. Everyone in the party, all the way down to the 6-year-olds, agreed: They were superb. I would hire them again and recommend them without reservations.

I could not be more thrilled with my experience. They offer to learn a song of your choice. I picked a Sigur Ros tune for when family and wedding party walked down the aisle. I was already in tears by how beautiful their version was; even before I walked down the aisle!

Would recommend them in a heartbeat. Really easy to work with too.

We had a string quartet from Columbia River Strings play our wedding last weekend. Our wedding ceremony was at a park that did not allow amplified sound last weekend and Columbia River Strings was an amazing addition. The music was beautiful. Several people commented to us that they typically do not get emotional at weddings but the ceremony music really got to them.

We were especially impressed by how well they aligned the music to our ceremony given how little we communicated with them (which was our fault because we were terrible at promptly responding to their e-mails because we were so busy getting ready). Even with our very slow and non-thorough responses, they nailed the flow of the ceremony we were going for. The audience probably thought they had practiced with us at the rehearsal!

On top of how amazing they were to work with, their prices were competitive compared to the other string quartets we spoke with.
