Instrumental - Duo, Instrumental - Solo, Instrumental - Trio, Orchestra, Soloist / Vocalist, String - Quartet, String - Quintet, String - Trio
What instruments does your group play?
Cello, Guitar, Harp, Piano, Viola, Violin
What is your usual attire?
We provide a variety of different costumes- we are a mostly female company, and have beautiful dresses to match any bridal color scheme!
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Solo violin can perform a live audition at no cost to you, over 40 sound samples are available on our website, and some duo ensembles can provide live auditions in your home for a small travel fee.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
2 minutes, tops! The great thing about our string ensembles is that there are no unsightly cords, mics, amps or equipment like most DJs and amped musicians. All we need is a chair in most cases!
How much space do you usually require?
Very little! Stringed musicians can be placed anywhere in your wedding scenery. There is no more natural, beautiful sight than rich wooden instruments discretely placed within your wedding ceremony.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
If you are anywhere within the Phoenix Metro area, then no charge! Chances are we've probably played at your location before and have a great relationship with the staff there already. For areas outside the Phoenix area, there is a small charge of $0.75/mile.

Eily was so easy to get in touch with - she would respond to emails immediately. We requested a song that was not on their repertoire and they were happy to learn it. We had them for our ceremony and through cocktail hour and they were wonderful! We received so many compliments from our guests about how good their music was. I would highly recommend Sweetwater Strings!

Highly recommend Sweetwater Strings. They were quick to respond to emails and were a breeze to work with. The music sounded beautiful. For a reasonable fee, they adapted two new songs not in their repertoire, but which were important to us. I especially liked it that their prices and music selections are posted on their website.

I found Sweetwater Strings while searching for ceremony music in/around Phoenix. Their website is awesome -- it provides many samples of their work across all of the different instruments they have available. They were very quick to respond to my emails, and were great with suggestions for instrumentation based on the size of our wedding. We had a small wedding and ended up with a violin and cello duo. They were incredibly professional, and obviously had done many weddings before. I, the neurotic bride, had everything about the ceremony planned to the last letter, but I shouldn't have worried -- our musicians knew exactly what they were doing and when.

I know this is most likely the case with most brides, but my only regret is that as the bride I barely got to hear them! Our processional and recessional that I DID get to hear were beautiful, and I've had many compliments from guests that the rest of the ceremony as well and the pre- and postludes they played were lovely. They were easy to work with, showed up punctually, and did a beautiful job.

The violin and guitar duo created a perfect tone for our outdoors wedding. Eily made everything easy from picking the music to arranging the contract. Our wedding was in Arizona, but we were from Oklahoma, and I thought it might be hard trying to arrange everything from several states over. This could not have been easier and there were no last minute hassles to be dealt with. Wonderful timing and music.
