First impressions are critical. You get one chance to “wow” someone or a group of people. Most times, there are no do-overs. When it comes to a wedding, first impressions are even more important because a couple expects that this will be the most magical day of their lives.
My husband and I wanted music to be the first impression for our guests on our wedding day. Music would set the tone for our entire day. Talk about pressure! So, we definitely did our research and interviewed ensembles to play before and during our wedding ceremony at the church. We had only one chance to perfectly “kick off” our special celebration for us and our family and friends.
Our homework paid off. In fact, it more than paid off. We had, hands-down, the most talented string quartet help us celebrate the most magical day of our lives. The Rosewood Ensemble started playing at the church a half hour before our ceremony started, so our guests were greeted with exceptionally beautiful and memorable music. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard our guests talk about how lovely the music was and how much it added to the service. Mission accomplished. The first impression on our wedding day “wowed” our guests.
On top of their exceptional talent, the leader of the group, Dee Sparks, was wonderful to work with, and that’s an understatement. From the beginning, it was evident she wanted us to have music that meant something to us and reflected who we are as a couple. Thank goodness for her extensive knowledge and understanding of music because my husband and I honestly had no idea where to start when it came to picking songs. Dee would make a number of suggestions, and then help us pick which ones were right for us. She helped make our music unique to us because I didn’t want to do what other couples do. I wanted to be different.
Going with Rosewood Ensemble was one of the best wedding decisions we made!!

The Rosewood Ensemble was an exceptional quartet of violinists at my daughter's Catholic wedding. They worked diligently with my daughter, church music director and myself to ensure that the music selections for the prelude prior to the mass provided a beautiful musical interlude for our guests. They played expertly throughout the mass complimenting the Cantor and selected songs. The richness of their string ensemble provided very special and memorable music for my daughter's wedding. Everyone was awe-struck by the their wonderful talent!!!! I would highly recommend The Rosewood Ensemble for your special occasion!!!

Dear Dee, I want to thank you and the Rosewood Ensemble string quartet for the beautiful music you performed at Amanda and David’s wedding. In addition, the soloist, Melissa Payton, had an incredible voice that helped to create an unforgettable experience for us and for our guests. You were lovely to work with throughout the year and your extensive experience and guidance were reassuring as we planned Amanda’s wedding. Thank you for your beautiful performance; the Rosewood Ensemble created an amazing ambience enjoyed by all. We are still receiving compliments from our guests. Many thanks, Sandy

The Rosewood Ensemble performed at my wedding ceremony and were absolutely amazing! They are extremely talented and their music is beautiful. It really set a wonderful mood for our guests by playing before, during, and after our wedding ceremony. They went above and beyond helping me to pick out my processional and recessional music as well as recommending a soloist for us to use during our ceremony who was also very talented. They also provide a CD with demos so you can really hear what they will be like in person. I highly recommend them!

Ms. Sparks and her trio were the ultimate professionals, but they were really nice people! They played beautifully at my son's wedding - we couldn't have been happier. So many people commented on them so positively! They were responsive to our needs, flexible, and helped us determine what was best for our particular circumstances. We were in continual communication up to the day of the wedding, so there was no doubt in our minds that this wouldn't be anything but a magical event. If you are lucky enough to secure your services, you are in for a wonderful event!!

Our guests couldn't stop talking about how wonderful it was to walk into our outdoor wedding space, and to hear and see the Rosewood Ensemble playing a prelude, tucked under some shady trees. The ceremony music was just as exquisite. They truly added a level of festivity and emotion to our already celebratory day, making the experience (and memories) all the better. Selecting music from the diverse list of options was fun (not stressful, like so many other choices!), and Dee was available to answer any and every question we came up with ahead of time.

They play beautiful music. We loved their repertoire and the professionalism they displayed as we planned the wedding. With so many things going on during the big day, having a musical group be hassle-free before during and after the ceremony was so important. The Rosewood Quartet added a special class and elegance that carried throughout our entire experience with them, from booking until the end. St. Louis is lucky to have such an affordable, professional and talented ensemble.
