Winner of the 2014 Couple's Choice Award!! Our elegant approach and fresh twists make your music something to remember!





Congratulations on your engagement, and I'm so glad you're here to read more about us. We want the music on your wedding day to be the perfect complement to such a wonderful event.

We are professional musicians, and as such we are creative people. We can't help that. We also can't help wanting to use our creativity as much and as often as possible! That's why we enjoy putting our talents together to create just the right mood for your wedding day.

Since we are all professional orchestral musicians we can provide our clients with a life-long, in-depth understanding of music. But classical musicians don't just love one style of music, we love it ALL! We have a great time playing jazz standards and we really enjoy the new trend of rock music arranged for string quartet. (In fact, one of our violinist's dreams came true when we recently performed Radiohead for string quartet!)

As the organizer for the Vanderbilt Strings I think I have the best role of all. I love being in touch with my clients and bouncing ideas back and forth with them. Since I have always kept a careful eye (and ear!) to what works and doesn't work, my clients find me to be a great resource for new inspirations.

In short, we love what we do, and we think it shows!

Absolutely amazing!! My wedding was on March 22nd and we booked a string quartet from Vanderbilt Strings to perform for 2 hours pre ceremony and during cocktail hour. It was always a pleasure to deal with Janie and she was flexible to change the timing slightly at the last minute. The musicians were all timely, professionally dressed and performed a BEAUTIFUL set. My guests were raving about the SQ and it added just the vibe we were looking for. Vanderbilt Strings is a great value for the money, I would absolutely recommend them and am honestly looking for a reason to use them again!

Vanderbilt Strings made our wedding extra special. All my guests were impressed by the music variety and playing ability of the string trio. What made them even more special was they learned how to play a special (but obscure) song for our ceremony. Thank you Janie/Vanderbilt Strings for making our wedding a day we will never forget.

The Vanderbilt Strings played lovely music during our ceremony. It was such a beautiful touch and everyone thought it sounded beautiful. They played before the ceremony began so that people could hear more music and also played exactly what we wanted them to during the ceremony. They have an extensive list of songs that they can play and are very friendly and helpful.

Having the Vanderbilt Strings play for my ceremony and cocktail hour at my wedding was more than I could have asked for. They were very professional and worked well with the event coordinator at the resort where I married. I was planning a destination wedding but the Vanderbilt Strings had such great communication that I knew everything would go as I wanted. My relatives and friends who have classical music training were very impressed with the quality of the music. Using the string trio for my wedding was the perfect sound for my outdoor wedding. I am so grateful for the work they did which made my wedding music go exactly as I wanted. I highly recommend this group.

I absolutely loved my music provided by Janie and Vanderbilt Strings. It made our ceremony complete and I couldn't have asked for better music. Janie is so professional and kept in contact with me throughout the entire planning process. Being an out of town bride, I was nervous about not having an opportunity to meet with our vendors prior to our ceremony. Janie eased my fears, sent me samplings of music, and led me to their website to listen to all the different genres of music the Vanderbilt Strings have to offer. I would definitely recommed them to anyone looking for a musical accompaniment to their ceremony!! Vanderbilt Strings is simply the best!

The music they played was beautiful. They started a few minutes early because I had guests arrive to the ceremony site early.

Wonderful addition to our beach ceremony! The Vanderbilt Strings were very flexible in playing a combination of classical songs and more modern music which was exactly what we wanted. I would recommend the Vanderbilt Strings as a great addition to any ceremony or reception. Very happy to have worked with them!!

Beautiful and elegant do not even begin to describe how amazing this group of insanely talented people are. Janie did such an amazing job putting together a list of music that flowed together so beautifully for our ceremony. It made our wedding so elegant. I will never forget the goosebumps I had walking down the aisle to the sound of their music. Thank you to Janie and the rest of the crew for what you did to make our wedding ceremony so unforgettable.

I didn't really get to enjoy them because I came 30 minutes after they started playing, but they did a really good job. My guests were all complimenting them. They played a lot of current music that my husband wanted and were very professional.

Vanderbilt Strings did an amazing job for us. Not only are they totally professional, prompt, and responsive, they are also extremely talented musicians who can play a diverse range of music. In addition to playing Bach and Haydn for our ceremony, we asked them to find musical pieces from my husband's Cuban culture for our Cuban-themed cocktail hour, and they went above and beyond to do so. They were also flexible about being moved from the beach (where the ceremony had been held) to a terrace, and having to set up again, after our beachside cocktail hour got rained out. We highly recommend the Vanderbilt Strings!

Janie and Glenn were wonderful! I requested a special old song and they arranged it masterfully for a single violin. It was great! I highly recommend them for their professionalism and talent. They were also a pleasure to work with.

The Vanderbuilt Strings played for our outdoor wedding in Marco Island. Their music was the perfect addition to our wedding and added a element of class to our dinner and dancing. We had special requests that they play a waltz for our first dance and they chose a wonderful selection of music to exactly fit our requests. They arrived promptly, were very organized and followed our requested schedule to a tee. Their musical talent was evident and their choice of songs was perfect for our event. I would highly recommend them. Thank you for making our wedding so special!

Vanderbilt Strings played during my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and it was absolutely beautiful and amazing. They did such a great job an all the guests said the music was perfect. It was completely worth it to spend the money to have live music at the wedding ceremony and cocktail. It really set the mood. Janie was great to work with and made everything super easy and simple to set up. I would 100% recommend them to another bride or someone else planning an event.

The Vanderbilt Strings provided a string quartet that played ceremony music for our beach wedding on 09/24/11.
Janie was very helpful, easy to reach and responsive to questions from the beginning and provided all of the necessary paperwork to secure our wedding date. I felt that the price was a bit high for them to only play for a hour and their may be other groups out there that charge less. This is the only negative thing to say about them.
We didn't have any particular songs in mind that we wanted played while guests were being seated, so we left it up to them to choose songs and they did a great job. The music was beautiful and it added a great touch to our small, personal, beach wedding. Highly recommend them to future brides :)
