My daughter had a Catholic Church wedding ceremony. Fortunately for us, our pastor allowed contemporary music to be played before and after the ceremony. The selections available from Penn String's playlist were absolutely wonderful, and there were many to choose from. My daughter was late getting to the church. However, we were told by all of the guests in church that day, that they were so entertained and impressed by the string music that they did not want it to end. I was told that the music played by Chris and Aggie was so enjoyable that many of the guests were brought to tears. One guest told us that the music has left an everlasting impression on her and she will never forget our wedding because of it. When we arrived at the church and I heard the music, believe me when I say, it was better than we ever could have hoped for. And yes, it truly made a lasting impression on us!!! I am so happy that we had Penn Strings play such an important part in my daughter's wedding day. Susanne Wilson was absolutely wonderful to work with, and Chris and Aggie were absolutely phenomenal!!! Will use them again for my other daughter's wedding, and would recommend them to everyone I know!!!!

I used penn strings for my wedding at the stroudsmoor country inn this last august (2015). Stroudsmoor Country inn refered us to penn strings. I used a violin/chello duo. They did an amazing job. The music sounded beautiful. They have a great/updated playlist to work with or are willing to learn new songs too!
Susanne Wilson who does their bookings was a pleasure to work with. She is also an officiant for journeys of the heart. We used her as our officiant too, and there are not enough nice words to say about her. I would definitely recommend penn strings. They are affordable/professional/talented.

We hired a string trio (guitar, violin, and cello) from Penn Strings to do our summer outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour music, and we absolutely loved them. The whole planning process was super easy and Susanne was communicative and helpful. The music was absolutely beautiful. We had requested a special arrangement of Storybook Love, the theme from the Princess Bride, for the bride's processional and I (the bride) had pretty high standards about how I wanted it to sound and man, did they deliver--- they nailed it. It was a BEAUTIFUL arrangement. I have been listening to it over and over again via our wedding video and just their music brings happy tears to my eyes. We also received many compliments from the wedding guests on their beautiful playing. Our wedding was out in the woods and the beautiful string trio music was a great addition to the atmosphere.

In a nutshell, I highly, highly recommend them!

The Penn Strings musicians are beyond talented. A trio played before and during my ceremony, and also during the cocktail hour at my reception. What's so special about Penn Strings is that they play both classical and current music beautifully. It was a real pleasure to work with them, and they set such a lovely tone for my ceremony and cocktail hour.

My husband and I hired Penn Strings to play for the ceremony and cocktail hour for our wedding on May 9th at Mountain Springs Lake Resort. They truly made our wedding day that much more special. Working with Susanne was a pleasure. We so appreciated the great email communication and customer service throughout our planning process. Having Mike and Aggie there to play for our ceremony and cocktail hour was a beautiful touch and was complimented on by so many of our guests. They were absolutely wonderful! Not only were they extremely talented and beautiful musicians, but their sound completely filled the outdoor area in which they played. It was very cool to be able to choose a mix of classical and contemporary music and made for a fun surprise for our guests. Thank you again for everything. You guys were absolutely wonderful to work with!

We knew we wanted to book with Penn Strings from the first day that we met Chris. He took the time to listen to what we wanted for our ceremony giving suggestions and lots of help along the way. He was kind enough to play certain songs we weren't sure of, helping us to find what we wanted - non-traditional fun. They were amazing from the whole planning process to the ceremony and cocktail hour. They did an amazing job at going with the flow of the party and playing whatever they thought the crowd would enjoy most during cocktail hour. They were an absolute hit! Ourselves and our guests truly enjoyed them. Thank you so much to Penn Strings for making our ceremony unforgettable and that much more special!

My husband and I got married at Stroudsmoor Country Inn on February 21, 2015. Prior to our wedding, we went to a food tasting event at our venue and heard Penn Strings play. Shortly after that event, we booked them. We chose a violin and cello string duo. We communicated via email and they were a pleasure to work with. Penn Strings played music for our ceremony and cocktail hour and it was hands down one of the best wedding decisions we made. It happened to snow the day of our wedding and guests arrived early to the venue. We were so impressed that Penn Strings actually began to play music earlier than expected due to people arriving early. We received so many compliments. My only regret is that we didn't get a chance to say hello to the musicians! Everything goes by so fast. We were so so happy we chose to have them play live music, it was so beautiful and romantic and added to the ambiance of our wedding.

Chris and Aggie were PHENOMENAL! We utilized Penn Strings for our champagne brunch the day following our wedding electing to have them perform a combination of contemporary music to add an interesting twist to the event. Their performance was flawless and received a multitude of complements from our guests.

We are wedding vendors ourselves (The Details Matter) and often recommend Penn Strings for ceremony music knowing how exemplary they are.

Penn Strings did a great job. Everyone in our ceremony loved them. I was sad, because between being the bride and taking pictures during the cocktail hour I really didn't get to hear them play too much. But, everyone told me they were great! My only less than 5 rating was because they were very strict on their timing and their rules. You pay for ever 15 minutes that runs over, and if you add a person to sing with them it also costs additional. I just felt they could have been a little more flexible. But, Im sure they are running a profitable business and it works for them. But, overall in terms of their professionalism and music during the ceremony and cocktail hour, they were great!
