Pauline and the entire Garden Strings Quartet were incredible. They were so professional and flexible with our schedule. Their repertoire was very expansive--guests commented that they were so excited to hear the Game of Thrones theme song as a pre-ceremony selection! I could not have asked for a more seamless experience.

Garden Strings was great! They played music for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and they were professional, courteous, and a crowd pleaser. I would recommend them to anyone!

We reached out to several string trios once we decided to do live ceremony music. Garden Strings immediately stood out as the friendliest and most approachable. We wanted a trio that could play contemporary music, and their clips online combined with Pauline's friendliness via email sold us on Garden Strings. They were also able to arrange a song that wasn't on their list for a nominal fee. Pauline was extremely responsive to my many questions, and very flexible when our venue changed last-minute. She listened to our vision and honored it perfectly - we gave her only a general idea of what we wanted for music before and after the ceremony, and it was perfect. As for the ceremony, the music was one of my favorite parts. It was so incredibly special to walk down the aisle to their strings. Several of our guests told me they teared up as soon as the music started. Their music was truly beautiful and absolutely brought our ceremony to life.

My sister was the one who highly encouraged me to hire live music for the ceremony, as she regrets not doing it herself. We almost didn't due to cost; now that I'm married, I can say that it was absolutely worth it, and I would hire Garden Strings again in a second.

Working with Pauline and hiring Garden Strings for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made. Not only are they communicative and professional, they are also so talented and play a range of classical and modern (they can do anything from Canon in D to Bruno Mars songs!). In addition, they are creative and accommodating- we asked them to play the Game of Thrones song at cocktail hour and they did an excellent job! We had a couple of guests that are also musicians at our wedding and they told us that Garden Strings was great as well. Highly recommended!!

Garden Strings was asked to provide music for my son's Jewish, Star Trek-themed wedding, reception and luncheon. They warmly embraced the challenge. While the processional began with "Sunrise Sunset", the Bride walked down the isle to the "Theme from Star Trek". The guests immediately "got it" and the fun began. Many friends and family members commented on how outstanding the music was for the entire day. The quartet did a spectacular job of blending these themes with outstanding traditional chamber music. We love Garden Strings!!

Garden Strings was the perfect addition to our fairy tale wedding! Pauline was very prompt at returning my emails, which was helpful given I was planning the wedding from out of state. She was very receptive to my requests and worked with me to create a unique and personal ceremony and cocktail hour playlist. I can not say enough good things about this group of ladies, they made our wedding truly unforgettable!

We had Garden Strings for our wedding in November. They were amazing! They arrived on time, played beautifully. The guests were impressed and we've received several compliments. I would hire them back in a second to play for any event. Thanks so much for making our wedding special!

A string duet from Garden Strings played at our wedding ceremony at St. Raymond's Catholic Church. It was an indoor ceremony and they did a beautiful job. It was very easy to work out all of the details by email and their website has great suggestions for song selection. Garden Strings also worked closely with the Music Director at our church and the music provided a wonderful atmosphere for our ceremony. Compliments were well received. I highly recommend their services.
