Jacksonville strings made our wedding super special. We can't image our wedding day without them. We received so many compliments. Jessie is easy to work with and responsive. She accommodated a special request and we were blown away. It sounded like a dream. Thank you Jessie and Jacksonville strings.

Jessie and her team were beyond helpful and talented. We requested all of our own songs for our day, and she was able to execute them flawlessly with little to no help from us, save the song titles. They arrived on time, played beautifully, and did everything we could have dreamed for to make our ceremony beautiful. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who is looking for string players for their event.

Jessie with Jacksonville Strings was an absolute joy to work with for my wedding. She was flexible and gave me great recommendations and direction for my ceremony music. I was having a very difficult time selecting songs and after speaking with her, we came up with a set list for the processional, ceremony, and recessional that was all music by The Beatles. It was the perfect way to represent my personality within the music. Working with her is a must!

Jessie of Jacksonville Strings was fantastic. We wanted irish fiddle and some bluegrass music for our ceremony and she was happy to play all of our requests. Jessie was wonderful to work with, and many of our guests commented afterwards on how great our ceremony music was.

We had a wonderful experience with Jacksonville Strings. Their string duo performed at our ceremony and they sounded awesome. They were very professional, offered good recommendations, and even accommodated a new song request—our recessional song was "Music for a Found Harmonium" by Penguin Cafe Orchestra which Jessie and her cellist partner re-arranged beautifully. I would highly recommend Jacksonville Strings!

We loved Jax Strings. The ceremony music was beautiful. The musicians were professional, during both the planning and the actual event. I thought it was a bit pricey, but I honestly did not check around because I thought that these musicians sounded so good. We hired two musicians at our wedding ceremony (I think we could have hired up to 4). Beforehand I probably would have hired 2 more musicians if we had had extra money, but in the end we were so pleased with the quality of their sound and talent that I did not mind. I highly recommend Jacksonville Strings - no matter how many musicians you can afford!

We had the best experience working with Jessie at Jacksonville Strings! She provided recommendations and music samples as well as worked with us on some not so traditional music for our ceremony. The music was wonderful!! I'm still getting complements from our guests on how lovely Jessie's music was. I highly recommend Jacksonville Strings for any event!

I highly recommend Jax Strings! They did a wonderful job providing music for our wedding ceremony. They were very easy to communicate with during a busy time in my life. They were able to play all of my requested songs, including contemporary. I am glad I used live music because it added something unique to the day. Prices are extremely reasonable and it was totally worth it!

Jacksonville Strings was the best! I got so many compliments on the string duo. Per my request, the group sweetly played an extra song for me after the ceremony during pictures, as I was disappointed to have missed all of the pre-ceremony music. They were the only group in town that not only met my budget but also blew my guests away with such beautiful music.

I wanted a very specific piece played at my wedding and was finally able to contact the composer and get the sheet music for it. Jaxonville Strings played it amazingly well--there is no doubt that they are talented musicians. Beyond that, their professionalism and ease to communicate with were exemplerary. They were one of the few vendors that I did not have to worry about and there was no stress associated with my dealings with them. They provided what I needed and went over and above my expectations.

Jessie was a pleasure to work with and was very professional. She came to the venue on time (even early) and played every song we requested. We could also hear her over the river and the river breeze from yards away! Thank you for making this aspect of my wedding stress free!
