These musicians were truly amazing on our wedding day. We selected the violin, cello, flute trio. The price was right and the service was superb. The service came with 30 minutes of pre-ceremony music, processional and recessional music, and an option for extra music during select portions of the ceremony (such as a unity ceremony). All of our questions were answered and we were well taken care of. The musicians played a medley of Beatles love songs for our pre-ceremony music, which was a big hit with the crowd. They really helped make our day even more beautiful.

Gretchen was recommended to us by a friend. And, she did not disappoint. She was pleasure to work with for our wedding. The music was beautiful and added a wonderful dimension to our ceremony. I'd work with Perfect Harmony again in a heartbeat.

Gretchen and the other musicians were extraordinary at my wedding! I couldn't have imagined them being any better. They set the stage for an amazing wedding and cocktail hour. I look forward to using Perfect Harmony again at additional functions and would recommend them to anyone looking for real musicians! My guests commented on how special and extraordinary Perfect Harmony made our wedding. Many of them said they found themselves happily trying to determine which modern song was playing - amazed that it was the Beatles, Lady GaGa, etc. Many commented that they never thought it was possible to enjoy a string ensemble (and flute) this much! Melissa and I are eternally grateful! Thank you!

Gretchen did a great job as the ceremony musicians at our wedding. She promptly responded to all emails and made sure that every little detail with regards to the songs was taken care of. On the day of the wedding, I didn't even know they arrived since I was so busy but all of our guests said the musicians were wonderful. I would highly recommend her!

We used Perfect Harmony for our ceremony music and our cocktail hour. We chose traditional music for the ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful. During the cocktail hour we chose modern hits in string version! We unfortunately didn't get to hear this part since we were off having photos done, but all of our guests raved about it and they loved trying to guess the songs! The owner, Gretchen, was great to work with throughout the planning process. She provided a huge list of music to choose from as well as tips for selecting ceremony music. She was quick to respond to my questions.
In the beginning we weren't sure it was worth it to book ceremony musicians but I am so glad we did and so glad we chose Perfect Harmony! It was well worth it!

It was a pleasure to work with Gretchen and the perfect harmony players to make our wedding a beautiful event for everyone. Prior to our wedding I have talked to Gretchen on the phone and via email to coordinate the music both on the standard playlists on their website and off. When I asked if they could play Erik Satie's gymicopedia a piece usually done on piano Gretchen just said that all they needed was a little time to rehearse. The day of the wedding we arrived to find our guests entertained by a string quartet doing a magical performance of gymicopedia. Our other musical selections were ode of mans desire, cannon in d, the town hall meeting from the film pride and predjudice, lastly the ceremony concluded with Coldplay's viva la vida all of which sounded wonderful on strings. The music left everyone at our wedding rejoicing to no end. We cannot tank Gretchen and the perfect harmony players enough.

Perfect Harmony's String Trio played at our May 5 wedding at Brookside Gardens, in Wheaton, MD. They also sent a representative to our rehearsal the day before, and she played the start of each piece to be used in the ceremony. The group was very responsive and helped me a great deal by answering my dozens of questions about song suggestions, what they were able to play, what they recommended, etc. Gretchen was extremely helpful and patient with me! The day of the ceremony they were on time, played beautifully, and we never had to think about them being there - everything just went so smoothly. Highly recommended!

In addition to playing beautiful music, Perfect Harmony is a delight to work with. Their contract is straightforward,they are an incredibly "low maintence" vendor and their fees are very reasonable. They also have a large "playlist." Our daughter walked down the aisle to "viva la vida," from Coldplay. With cello, violin and flute, it was simply beautiful.

My husband booked this group for our September 18th wedding using gig masters. He insists that they were very responsive, professional, and flexible.
My only job concerning the strings was to listen to their long repertoire list to find music that I absolutely loved. It really wasn't a hard thing to do because they were well versed. I decided on some classical pieces that I normally don't hear at weddings.
The Big Day came and I was in the vestibule alone awaiting my entrance. I listened to Perfect Harmony play the bridesmaids processional , Chopins "Nocturne," with ease. They sounded amazing!
Perfect Harmony was flexible. My husband and I decided to coordinate them with an opera singer they never worked with before. We picked pieces that they both knew and again, Perfect Harmony did a fantastic job. My recessional "Gigue" by J S Bach was also very awesome!
My only gripe is that I wasn't sitting in the pews of the church listening to them play the whole time! I can't wait to hear them in the video.

My only gripe is that I wasn't sitting in the pews of the church listening to them play the whole time! I can't wait to hear them in the video. Read less

It was a pleasure working with Perfect Harmony, they helped me figure out my music, and were patient with me as I changed my mind (a lot)! I felt very secure that the entire mood of my wedding would be in their hands, and they did a fantastic job! We recieved many complimets. I wish I could've heard more (being the bride, I was in a separate room and unable to hear the prelude music), but my husband told me it was beautiful, and when I heard my bridemaids' song, and my song, it was just as I had pictured it in my head. I can't wait to watch our wedding video so I can hear the rest. I would confidently recommend them to anyone. Thank you Perfect Harmony! You helped make our day absolutely PERFECT!

Perfect Harmony gave us a guide, and links to listen to different music options. I booked PH months before the wedding, and even without me checking in the musicians showed up on time, looking professional, and played beautifully. Fantastic.

I recieved referrals from friends about other wedding musicians in the area and the search process was very frustrating because there was a lack of responsiveness from many of the referrals. And then I decided to take matters into my own hands and found Perfect Harmony on Wedding Wire. Gretchen's responsiveness and professionalism were exactly what I needed. She made the entire process from the music selection, to showing up and playing at the wedding so easy for me. And I have to say that I have gotten so many compliments on the ensemble. My DJ was even impressed by the ensemble and they do weddings all the time. Gretchen-You helped me have the wedding ceremony that I'd always dreamed of. Thank you!

Gretchen is responsive and very pleasant to work with over the phone and email. We did pick a song that they weren't able to play; however, it was a complex rock song so we wouldn't discount them on that. We were particular with our ceremony music and they delivered it perfectly on our wedding day. We would definitely recommend them in a heartbeat.

Their music was the perfect touch to a southern and romantic wedding we had envisioned. They have a HUGE repertoire of songs to choose from to custom fit your wedding. We went with the string trio and the sound was perfect in the small ballroom of the manor house for our ceremony.

The musicians arrived timely and were easy to work with. The weather was not the best for what was essentially an outdoor venue, but the quartet was flexible and accommodating when the plans of where to position them needed to be adjusted when it was time for the ceremony to start.
During the planning stages, Gretchen provided much helpful guidance and a huge list of numbers in their repertoire. Early on the e-mail responses were somewhat slow, but when we got closer to the wedding date, her response time was much better.

For the ceremony & cocktail hour we used a string trio through Perfect Harmony. Gretchen was very helpful in assisting us choose music for the ceremony. When looking through their playlist, we were so intrigued and surprised that the musicians could play R&B & pop music. For the cocktail hour we gave them a list of songs and let the musicians fill in the rest along the same vibe. Unfortunately, my husband and I were away taking pictures during the happy hour but were were able to catch a little bit of them playing Lady Gaga :) My guests were very impressed with the musicians and excited to hear the string versions of various popular tunes. The musicians were very talented and professional.

There was beautiful music as I walked down the aisle and they were even able to adapt when my officiant messed up and skipped part of the ceremony.

On the day of our wedding, Perfect Harmony arrived on time and they played beautifully. I was happy with our decision.

Gretchen and Perfect Harmony were great to work with!! Their value was much better than anything else I saw in the Washington, DC area and their performance was great. They also worked with us to get the sound routed outside correctly since we wanted an outdoor ceremony and it was too cold outside for the instruments. The only negative I have is that occasionally I'd have to send multiple emails to get a response, but when anything was urgent I heard back right away.

Perfect Harmony String Ensemble was extremely professional and easy to work with. Gretchen, my main point of contact, was very accommodating. My mother had very specific pieces that she wanted to select for our wedding ceremony music, and although Perfect Harmony did not have the sheet music for a few of the pieces, they were flexible in allowing us to provide our own sheet music and charging a nominal fee for music arrangements. Their music sounded great during both the ceremony and reception and I'm so glad we chose them! (We hired a quartet: two violins, a viola, and a cello.)

Obtaining ceremony music was something I decided to do at the last minute. I was an anxious bride to start and booking them late was really out of charachter for me, but everything went perfect. Perfect Harmony was extremely responsive and Gretchen even called to follow up and ensure that everything was in place. I conducted mostly all of the arrangements via email which expedited the process and was easier for me. Their pricing is all inclusive which was great. On the day of the event the music was beautiful and my guests enjoyed it very much.

We hired a string duo from Perfect Harmony String Ensemble to perform at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The music they played for us was beautiful and the they were very professional. They provided great quality music, especially for the price. Many of our guests told us afterwards that the music was wonderful and we both agreed. We would definitely recommend Perfect Harmony to anyone.

They were all very talented, easy and flexible to work with and definitely added a touch of elegance to our wedding. All our guests had nothing but great things to say about them. I'm so glad we chose them to provide our ceremony music.

I was very happy with this vendor. They played at both my ceremony and cocktail hour. I think it was a nice touch over traditional piano/organ music in a church.
When we had a timing change in our cocktail hour, this vendor was willing to accommodate this change, which was very appreciated!

Gretchen and her musicians were great! It was was one of the more expensive vendors we chose relative to how long they played, in part because their transportation cost is built in and because it's a flat rate rather than per hour. However, they really did a wonderful job. They provide you with all the music selections to choose from and have a wide variety from which to choose. I did notice that at the end of our ceremony, there was a small delay in playing the recessional song so that we were almost down the aisle before it started but I was probably the only one that noticed. Otherwise, they were great and I would definitely recommend them to others!

Perfect Harmony was very easy to work with. Excellent communications...all our music was chosen via email communications. Beautifully orchestrated....we had dual violins playing in the rose garden before the ceremony...during the cermony and afterward. Very classy touch. All the guests enjoyed the music. Would probably choose someone more local due to traffic next time......but the service and quality of music was top notch.

Perfect Harmony was indeed perfect for my wedding. They assisted with music selection, came to the rehearsal, and set just the right tone for the ceremony. My guests loved the music. Because I had a unique venue, the musicians had to adapt to the venue manager not being quite ready for them when they arrived. But they were completely professional and came through with spectacular music.

Perfect Harmony played the music for the ceremony at my wedding. I thought they were very helpful getting music and suggestions to me and even though I was pretty distracted during the ceremony, what I heard of the music was great! I only gave a 4/5 for responsiveness because leading up to the wedding day there was a bit of delay in getting responses to e-mails/phone messages (but I was also on a tight time frame so that made me more antsy then most :) ). Overall I think Perfect Harmony did a fantastic job and I would definitely recommend them to friends!

Our ceremony music by Perfect Harmony String Ensemble was beautiful. They started a half hour prior to the ceremony and stuck around a bit after as the guests wandered over to our reception. We found some perfect pieces for us on their extensive repertoire list. The only small problem I had was that it could be a little slow to hear back from them by email, but everything else was great!

Perfect Harmony provided the string trio music for my wedding ceremony, and I was very happy with their performance. I worked with Gretchen to plan out the music for the ceremony itself, and she provided lots of helpful feedback and tips to make sure the music matched up with the order of events. The trio also provided pre- and post-ceremony music, and Gretchen was more than happy to play songs from their repertoire that my mother-in-law had requested. I would highly recommend them for ceremony music - they are great to work with, have extensive repertoire lists, and sounded wonderful!

Very professional and responsive and good value for what you get. My groom is a violinist so he was rather picky (only Itzhak Perlman would get 5 stars), but we got loads of compliments from guests. This group has flexible combinations of members and a huge repertoire. We and our guests especially loved the pop and contemporary covers played during the cocktail hour.

I only wish that as the bride I could have heard them more before the ceremony, but I know the guests were happy. I think the value is very good and they are very dependable.

We hired a string trio (2 violins and cello) for our outdoor ceremony. Although I did not have the opportunity to hear much of the music, I heard many positive comments from guests about the performances. By having a trio, they were able to achieve the harmony for more contemporary songs vs traditional wedding songs. Gretchen was very helpful and professional to work with to establish details and answer questions prior to our wedding day.

I was so excited to have Perfect Harmony's string trio play at our outdoor ceremony, however, on our wedding day we were sad to learn that they would not be able to play because temperatures were too low for their instruments. We didn't realize when we booked them that they would be unable to play if the temperature was below 65 degrees. We were told this a few weeks before the wedding, but we were still hoping for the best temperature-wise. When our wedding day came and the temperatures were in the 50s, they couldn't play. This was very disappointing because we were still holding our ceremony outside. However, they were flexible and offered to play inside as the wedding party walked outside to the ceremony, and as guests came back inside afterwards. They sounded amazing and did a great job, we just were not able to utilize them as we had originally hoped. Keep this in mind if you are a bride that's planning on having an outdoor ceremony during a month where the weather and temperatures could be questionable.

Perfect Harmony played (as a quartet) for my wedding reception during the cocktail hour, first dance, and dinner.

Very professional, well dressed, and very talented.

They are very capable musicians with a wide repertoire of classical, classic rock, 80's, and pop-music.

They did an excellant rendition of Journey - Don't Stop Believin' for our first dance.

Highly recommend!

My only regret is not knowing they would need amplification during the dinner hour- I was on the opposite side of the room and could barely hear them over the chatter of our guests. Plan accordingly!

Most likely we would recommend Perfect Harmony to others. Overall, they played very well, arrived on time, and dressed in professional attire. We got several compliments about how lovely the music was. Discussion of what song(s) to play in the event of delays in the ceremony would have been helpful ahead of time, rather than having them pick songs we were unfamiliar with on the fly. It would have also been helpful to hear samples of traditional and modern wedding music as performed by the flutist and violinist we hired. It was risky having to make all payments in advance without knowing what the music was going to sound like prior to the actual wedding ceremony.

Perfect Harmony provided the music for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner. The music was beautiful and our guests all provided compliments. There was a large selection of music from which we could choose, which was really nice, as from what little we were able to hear (when we weren't off taking pictures!), they fulfilled all of our selections. I made a note on the paperwork that I would like them to play one song when I returned from taking pictures, and they were kind enough to remember and follow through on this request shortly after I entered the reception, which was greatly appreciated.

Of all of our wedding vendors, Perfect Harmony was the most difficult to deal with because of Gretchen's lack of responsiveness by both email and phone. I hate to be so critical, but there would be times when I waited months to hear from her, which almost made us switch vendors. It was not like I was asking her difficult questions, and most of the time, when I actually got a response, it was a canned email that she easily could have sent months earlier (i.e. asked her when I should expect to make song selections, waited months, then received a canned message that included all of the selection information). I mentioned several times that her lack of responsiveness was making us nervous, but that never helped the situation. We understand that vendors are busy, but several months of waiting was a bit much.

Gretchen emailed after my early Oct wedding asking us to review PH. Our wedding was held in an intimate garden setting. We had discussed the use of a sound system to ensure appropriate volume and enjoyment for the guest. Our contract paperwork included the use of a speaker/ sound system as promised to us as a special perk of booking PH through a bridal expo. Despite our agreement for this sound system to be supplied and used it was not brought to my wedding. The quartet was not loud enough to be heard throughout a very small garden. My mom was seated approx. 20-25 feet from them and could barely hear them. As my bridesmaids, the flower girl and I processed and recessed the music was too quiet to hear. Some of my guest who were seated in the section directly in front of the quartet and though they were very pleased with the music they also remarked to me the music was not very loud , as did many of my guest who were seated on the opposite side of the garden. It would have been nice to have a sound system as promised in our contract so everyone could have enjoyed the music. In addition many of our own formal pictures showed one of the musicians wearing a very large oversized bright blue sweatshirt like jacket...as there was a cool wind blowing on the beautiful Oct day. I understand the need for warmth but also feel that a more appropriate and professional sweater or jacket cold have planned for and worn. It really did not look professional at all and many of my guests even commented, as all of the other musicians were dressed in black/white. In addition to everything, responsiveness to emails and phone calls was always very slow through our year of planning the wedding.

We wrote Gretchen to voice all of these concerns two weeks after the wedding asking for a partial refund due to their lack of upholding the contract. To this day we still have not ever heard back from her or the company. No email, no phone calls. Very unprofessional. Spend your money elsewhere.

Perfect Harmony was the most disappointing part of our otherwise wonderful ceremony. The owner was extremely unresponsive throughout the planning process. I had to send her numerous emails and call her multiple times before getting basic information, such as the musical selections her musicians could play. She was very nice and apologetic about it, but what really prompts me to write this review is my family's disappointment with the quality of the service we ultimately received. We arranged for a string trio to play during our ceremony. The contract includes 30 minutes of pre-ceremony music as the guests arrive. My mother was outraged that the musicians did not do this, refused to do so even when asked, and said they did not know what music to play (which was odd, since this had all been arranged before). For some reason, they were seated so that they played away from our guests, so it was very hard to hear them. In short, they were completely indifferent and it was obvious they had no interest in being part of our wedding ceremony - not something the bride wants to deal with on her wedding day. I would recommend finding a different string ensemble.

(Im)perfect Harmony were late and unprepared. Sounded like they had not played together before. They sounded off-key. Guests noticed the mess. Fidgeted with music sheets and stands before they could get started. Paid $750 and maybe they played a total of 5 or 6 complete songs. To top it off, I paid for an extra performer so we could have a particular song for the bride's processional. They played the WRONG song.
Complained to them because wanted refund. No response.

Booked through Gigmasters and they were no help.
