If you are considering using a string trio or quartet for your ceremony and/or cocktail hour you should definitely go with Parkwest Strings. From the beginning they were very easy to work with. We booked the string trio for our ceremony and cocktail hour. It made our ceremony much more unique and romantic. It was also great to pick from their wide variety of songs and customize the music for our event! This allowed us to use modern music for our ceremony in a way that was still wedding appropriate. The trio performed beautifully and was on cue with every song change. We highly recommend Parkwest Strings!

I would recommend Parkwest Strings to anyone looking for a string trio/quartet for their wedding. Songhea was an absolute joy to work with and is so flexible. The music was definitely one of the top 3 highlights of the day! I was in a really bad car accident the day before the wedding and as a result other things ran behind...including my arrival to the ceremony on the morning of the wedding (we were planning on transporting my parents to the wedding but our car was completely wrecked...had to do some very last minute re-arranging). I can't tell you what a comfort it was amidst all of the chaos to know that my guests were provided with beautiful music as they waited for our arrival...it was so soothing to everyone. Parkwest Strings, you were one of those who saved the day for us. I can't thank you enough!

They were amazing! Songhea is clearly a very talented musician and she conducted herself very professionally. The strings sounded beautiful during our ceremony; we couldn't be happier! I strongly recommend them if you want to add a touch of high class to your event.

I found most of the vendors for my May wedding online using yelp, wedding wire, the knot, etc. I scoured reviews and hoped the best! And with Songhea and a Parkwest Strings-- that's what I got. It was a great and easy experience working with Songhea from start to finish. We chose a wide variety (think everything from Snoop Dogg to Tom Petty). And they could play everything! Just one tip: make sure they can be heard. Our crowd drowned them out during cocktail hour.

Parkwest Strings was amazing. Not only did they fulfill my request of playing the song Home by Edward Sharpe, but their music and demeanor were more than we could have asked for. The music was the best addition to our ceremony and I'm greatful that we used them!

I could not be more happy with my decision to hire Parkwest Strings to provide the music at my ceremony and cocktail hour. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a 4 string quartet. I wish I had taped the ceremony because all I have are my memories of how amazing they sounded.

Parkwest String was one of the most beautiful quartets - they truly made the ceremony the elegant and classy theme I was going for. All of my guests were blown away by their performance & I received countless compliments on the music and how it made the ceremony extra special. Songhea was great to work with and she even let me pick my own music at no extra cost - she works with only the most quality professional quartets and you could tell in the way they played the songs for the first time - I have nothing but compliments and good reviews all the way around and I would use this quartet again.

Songhea and her musicians are so incredibly talented. We wanted only untraditional/more modern songs and they played them beautifully. They’re also very flexible, willing to learn new songs, and even rehearsed with one of our friends that sang during our ceremony and it was terrific. Highly recommended!
