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.

This was one of the best parts of our service! The violin music was beautiful and personal making people feel like they were enjoying a much more expensive, custom service. It was less expensive than paying the restaurant for a Sound system, but was TEN times better than plugging in an iPod. It was easy to communicate with Eliy via email to plan the wedding from afar, but she was right there on time and played throughout the agreed to time, generating more positive comments from my guests than anything else. Thank you Eily!!!!!!

I cannot recommend Sweetwater Strings enough! We had the guitar/violin duo for our ceremony and cocktail hour at the Secret Garden. My husband is very particular about music. He is a musician himself, so when we found the guitar/violin duo we were looking for, he was very excited. He wanted to write his own music for part of the ceremony, and Sweetwater Strings allowed him to do that and played it PERFECTLY! He was so happy. The only thing I regret is not having a videographer so I could have heard the music myself. I did hear them play the Bridal March, and it sounded wonderful. My husband is also Chinese, and we requested a Chinese traditional song for the tea ceremony. Since both of our musicians also happened to be Chinese, they were able to recommend a beautiful song that was very fitting for that part of the ceremony. They are the best- I promise!

This review is long over due. As with most brides, I had to work with a strict STRICT budget. I had a very informal wedding over at Papago Park and Sweetwater Strings upheld the class of it all!

Something goes wrong at every wedding and I was no exception. A good wedding band/musicians will play good music. An EXCEPTIONAL wedding band/musician will not only play good music but know how to "go with the flow"- this was the case with Sweetwater Strings. My wedding started an hour late and the whole structure of the reception got mixed up but they held it all together and made such a classy ambiance for my guests.

They were charming, presentable, kind, and affordable. God bless these people!! I had a violinist and guitarist - worked wonderfully.

Thank you, Sweetwater Strings!!!!!!!!!!

We used Sweetwater Strings for our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception music. Eily was very friendly with booking and flexible with our music options. We had a string trio and used mostly traditional music for the ceremony (we threw in Stairway to Heaven during the unity candle ceremony) and then modern pieces for our cocktail reception. It was very cool to be able to incorporate the music we like into soft, enjoyable music for our guests.

Eily with Sweetwater Strings was our violin soloist. I unfortunately didn't get the chance to meet her (and didn't see her at the ceremony - was too nervous to look around!) but I could hear her and she was amazing. Having her at the ceremony and during the cocktail hour provided just the right touch of class to make our wedding so much more amazing.

We are so grateful to Sweetwater Strings for providing such beautiful music at our wedding ceremony. Our musicians sounded incredible, and the arrangement of "Mah Tovu" that their composer put together was absolutely perfect. It brought tears to my eyes to walk down the aisle to such a beautiful version of my favorite Jewish song. The musicians added so much to the serene atmosphere of the ceremony, and I am so honored that we were able to have them be part of our big day!

Not only did they play great music, but they are very accomodating as well. I wanted to push my ceremony back a half and hour because I wanted to get married at sunset and Eily had no problems with making that happen. Thank you so much for helping Nate and I celebrate our perfect day!

The one thing we had to have for our wedding was string players and Sweetwater Strings was the perfect choice for our August 20th celebration! We communicated with Eily only through email and although emailing may not seem like the most personal method, Eily always made us feel as though she truly cared about every detail and offered us many great suggestions! We had a memory candle lighting ceremony and Eily and her team arranged a version of "The Prayer" especially for our wedding! We had many compliments from our guests about how wonderful the music was and we wish that we could have really enjoyed it was well as we only had them for the ceremony. Sweetwater Strings goes above and beyond for their clients and offers a wide variety of beautiful music that would absolutely accentuate any wedding. Thank you:)!!

We chose to have the violin and guitar duo play for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and our first dance. The musicians played the following requested songs:
Prelude Request In All My Life
Bridal Party Processional Spring, Vivaldi's Four Seasons
Bride Processional Pachabel Cannon
Recessional All You Need is Love

We loved the way these songs sounded with the violin and guitar duo. The live musicians definitely made the day feel more special and took the wedding up a notch!

Looking for an amazing string quartet that can play the classics and current hits? Hire Sweetwater Strings! I live in Chicago and just got married in Scottsdale, so I hired Sweetwater after reading other reviews and listening to their songs online. Throughout the process, Eily was in close touch and gave great advice on songs that would be best for each step of our ceremony and cocktail hour. We were more than happy with their sound at our wedding and we're very picky about music. Our guests told us they loved the quartet, too - they even had fun picking out the current songs that were played during cocktails. If you are undecided and want a professional, fun, beautiful sound for your wedding or event, I highly recommend Eily and her team at Sweetwater!

It was a pleasure working with Eily and Aaron. Aaron was my solo classical guitarist for my ceremony, and he did a beautiful job. And Eily made picking music so easy. She was always easy to get a hold of and had wonderful suggestions. Aaron did a great job of flowing with the ceremony and lengthening or shortening the songs as we needed. If you're looking for classical guitar, I would definitely check them out, but I also have a strong suspicion that all of their talent is just as professional and entertaining.

This was a leap of faith.. and it paid off! I never once met Eily or her crew in person. I did everything via email, and listening to her music from their website. Eily was great to work with, and she was responsive and creative in fufilling my desire for strings at my wedding. I only got to hear a snipit of the music, and it was breathtaking. My guests complimented the music and enjoyed the special touch. My only regret was not being able to enjoy it more since we only hired them for the ceremony.

The easiest vendor I had! She put together the perfect music selection, was not needy, met with her once gave her my info and what I wanted and she nailed it no problem whatsoever! Many of my guests were very impressed and thought it was the perfect touch for our intimate ceremony. We chose a solo violin under the impression we would only have 50 guests showing up, with close to 90 actually coming the sound level was still just as perfect! So great, and highly recommended

Sweetwater strings played for our ceremony & cocktail hour for our wedding in Sedona. They are affordable, accommodating (many other companies were not willing to drive 2 hours away), and were extremely professional. We first met with Eily and immediately booked her on the spot, we were shocked it would be affordable enough to include a cocktail hour (something we hadn't planned on doing with our tight budget.) Lali and Patricia did a great job! We would highly recommed them to anyone looking to add that extra special touch.

Just wanted to say thanks for the beautiful music you gave us at our wedding. My mother, who is a classically trained pianist, commented that your playing was wonderful and she enjoyed it very much. She even commented that she felt the selections could have been her own choosing, especially Musette (from her favorite opera).

I especially want to thank you for El Relicario, which brought a tear to her eyes remembering my dad playing it on his organ and the family dogs laying on the floor singing along with him. My sister and I requested it every night, and having it played at my wedding was like having a little piece of my dad there with us. I'm pretty sure he and the dogs looked down on the ceremony and smiled.

Thank you again for being a part of our day.

She had helpful suggestions, and was flexible to meet our needs. The music was so beautiful and we had many compliments on how great it was to have this live music as part of our ceremony and cocktail hour. I compared numerous string ensembles for price and quality. I found the best value and felt the most confident in selecting Sweetwater Strings. I would recommend them to anyone getting married!

Not only did they play beautiful music, they were incredibly accomodating for the special music request that we had, and very responsive via e-mail. I would recommend them to any of my friends who are getting married in the future. They were even willing to travel to Tucson to play at my wedding. I can't say enough good things about them, and were wonderful with the guests at the wedding as well. They were even willing to allow my 3 year old niece to look closer at their instruments - incredible. I received so many compliments on their music.

My husband and I could not have been happier with the service that Sweetwater Strings provided for us. We used a string quartet for our wedding and everything was perfect. My husband is a music major and had some pretty specific and difficult music requests and Sweetwater Strings was more then willing to work with us to accomplish these goals. Sweetwater Strings went out of their way to work with us and contact us with special circumstances while we were finishing school out of town and even planned a personal one-on-one meeting to discuss our specific individual contract. Sweetwater Strings contacted us a few days before the wedding just to touch base one final time. On the wedding day Sweetwater Strings was very punctual and were very organized as to what they needed so as to help keep everything running smoothly. During the ceremony the quartet did a great job following the flow of things. Many of the guests gave compliments to my husband and I afterwords based on the overall aura that their music provided to the ceremony. They truly made the day very special for everyone. My husband and I would highly recommend Sweetwater Strings to anyone planning an event. They far exceeded our expectations and we would use them again in a heartbeat.

Her music was beautiful and my husband and I received so many compliments from our guests about how "classy" the ceremony music was. It seemed to me to be a small element to have, but having a violinist really added something special to our wedding. Eily even came early to speak with the church coordinator, and was always professional whenever I spoke with her. I would definitely recommend Sweetwater Strings.

They also were very accomodating to our music requests, but played a great mix of contemporary and classical songs. We also really liked them as people, as well as admiring their talent as musicians. They were very competitively priced and well worth the money. We would recommend them to anyone we know having a wedding or special event!

They also were very accomodating to our music requests, but played a great mix of contemporary and classical songs. We also really liked them as people, as well as admiring their talent as musicians. They were very competitively priced and well worth the money. We would recommend them to anyone we know having a wedding or special event! Read less

Eily was very responsive to our music selection requests. We needed very specific types of music for the ceremony and she was able to provide that. She was pleasant and easy to work with although a little difficult to communicate with other than through email.

We used two violins from Sweetwater Strings for our ceremony. The musicians were on-time and easy to work with. The group could have been a little more responsive in advance during our booking discussions - but nothing terrible (and the price and contract were reasonable). The music sounded very nice on the day.

Did not show. My wife called and left her number. This place called back. Our wedding required them to travel so they needed to know the location to know what to charge. We paid and my wife mailed the contract. Come the day of the wedding no one showed. We called and left messages but no answer. Our wedding started 2 hours late waiting for someone to show. I received an email from them 2 days later. She claimed she didn't know where to go and that she didn't have a number to reach us. So she took our money but wasn't smart enough to write the information down. She also claimed that she was driving to us but her phone died. Why she is driving around without a charger or smart enough to buy a charger at any gas station is beyond me. Ladies and gentlemen, if you want your wedding to have music then you're better off playing music from your phone than hiring these unprofessional people.

Sweetwater Strings responded with the following comments:

Unfortunately, due to a miscommunication between the couple the contract was never mailed for this event and therefore never booked. Without a signed contract, Sweetwater Strings has no access to important information such as contact numbers, venue and email addresses, etc. and therefore cannot provide services. In this case the client did not provide a contract or respond to emails up to the event date and was refunded the deposit in full. Please note that sending a deposit alone does not secure your event date, and a signed contract is required.
