My wife really wanted live string music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Unfortunately in the chaos of planning everything this fell off our radar and we contacted Sienna Strings only about a month before our wedding. They were able to arrange for a violin and cello duet on a very popular wedding day. The music was terrific and we were thrilled that we paid the modest additional fee to have them stay for cocktail hour. I can't speak for all of the musicians of Sienna Strings, but my experience was excellent and having two musicians proved to be plenty while still being economical.

Email I sent to Emily of Siena Strings after the wedding is below. They were wonderful and accommodating and everything I could have hoped for!

Emily,
I'm so sorry I wasn't able to see you and give you a big hug on the wedding day but I wanted to send you an email now that we're back from the honeymoon to tell you THANK YOU - your group's performance at our wedding was absolutely perfect, incredibly memorable, and transformed our ceremony into a magical experience. I have never been to a wedding where so many guests gushed about how wonderful and beautiful the ceremony was. Thank you so much for everything - we are happy to serve as a very very positive reference for any brides or clients who ask you for a reference in the future. Thank you a million times!

Having heard Emily and Siena Strings play at a small wedding, we knew immediately we wanted to hire them for our own, without any further interviewing needed. Emily came and played such beautiful music on her violin, I cannot even describe it.. We gave her license to play whatever classical music she wanted, because frankly it didn't matter -- we, and our guests, were mesmerized by the beauty and talent of her music. She may have played 'Chops' for two hours! Of course she didn't, but the point is that she did an amazing job for us, and our guests complimented her in the highest terms all day, even long after she left. If you want elegant music performed by a very talented, and genuinely NICE, woman -- look no further.

Emily organized everything for our violinist at the ceremony! James Day was great and absolutely breathtaking to listen to. The price is great and the sound is absolutely unreal. Do yourself a favor and spend the money to add a violinist so you don't just have a organist, it will really make all the difference on your big day!

Siena strings did a beautiful job performing at my wedding ceremony and I received many compliments! I did a lot of research before hiring any of my wedding vendors and even went to listen to other quartets before hiring Siena. As someone who grew up playing the violin, it was really important to me to find a talented quartet who lived up to my expectations and Siena did not disapoint. I also found them to be very responsive and flexible. Also, you can see and hear them in action in my wedding video. The videographer is psynema.com and he is also a vendor here on wedding wire.

We were very happy with Siena Strings for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. We booked them from a friend's recommendation and were not dissappointed. We communicated soley by email and Emily was very responsive, she had a lot of great suggestions for songs and incorporated all of our requests. Our guests loved the live music and were happy to hear some contemporary songs they recognized during cocktail hour. We will be sure to tell our family and friends about Siena Strings.

Siena Strings provided our ceremony music in addition to our church organist & singer. Overall, their sound was great. I would agree with previous emails that they are not the speediest in response, but they did their job & the music sounded wonderful.

We booked Siena Strings for our ceremony music. And about a week before the wedding I could tell something might not go as planned with them. The only communication with them is through email and they don't respond back quickly enough and when they do they make no sense. I had to explain things to her several times in order for her to get it. When we arrived at the ceremony, they played perfectly fine until my bridesmaids started going down the aisle and they did not time it well at all because they started before anyone was even walking, and ended before they were done. I was mortified. After the ceremony, I wanted to talk with them in the back and she promptly walked past me, completely ignoring me and ran to the rest room and I haven't spoken with them since. I couldn't believe how rude she was after the ceremony. But they do play beautifully and they were a good cost.

Siena Strings played wonderfully at our wedding. I asked for contemporary, non-traditional, music for my wedding, and it was very tough to find that type of music for a Violin/Viola duo. Emily from Siena Strings was not much help in picking out music. Essentially, I was told that Beatles music would be great, and that was the only suggestion I was given. When I offered suggestions/requests, a majority of them were turned down, or I was told they couldn't do it. I asked for a listing of available/previously used contemporary music, and I was told that they didn't have one. She (Emily) was not very friendly, and I can't tell you if they played all of the music that I requested because I was busy having photos taken while they were playing, and didn't focus on the music in the background. They did play the the songs I had requested for the processional.

Not so great to work with beforehand if you don't want to use traditional music, but they play well.

I loves Siena Stings. They were recommended to me by a friend who used their services for her wedding. On a short notice, they made themselves available and they were great! The music was perfect, they worked with us on choosing the right music, they complied to our requests. I would strongly recommend them. And, they are resonably priced.

Siena strings did a fabulous job. They are very professional and dressed appropriately. The music was beautiful - I will never forget it! They helped me pick out my music and were very flexible when I, at the last minute, decided to add a second musician to my ceremony.

I used them on advice from another friend who was happy with their performance at her wedding -- so that's really 2 positive reviews.

I also felt that the cost was appropriate!

Thanks, Siena Strings!
