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!

Talk about a group that is able to be extremely flexible and "wing" it - as we never had a rehearsal and there really was no need to have one! They were SPOT ON and did an incredible job!! You're hiring professional musicians and a team that knows what to do with weddings. I provided a script of the ceremony in advance that helped them follow along, which I think makes things easier for cues. We hired a String Trio for our ceremony on the beach and they did an amazing job! Hire with confidence.

We worked with them for my November wedding. Janie was extremely responsive and flexible, working with us last minute. Their online selection/event planning service is great and helps you easily plan the music you want during different parts of your ceremony. Jen, the violinist, played beautifully. She was extremely flexible and professional during the crazy/disorganized time leading up to our event. I really could not be more pleased! Wonderful!

Vanderbilt Strings played at my wedding last month and they did an absolutely beautiful job! I was able to pick out what songs that I wanted to be played at certain times before, during, and after the ceremony. They also have samples on their website so that you can hear just how beautiful they sound.

I was tremendously pleased with Vanderbilt Strings as our ceremony music, as we had a solo violinist who was great. Janie is super easy and flexible with the music selection and scheduling. She makes it easy for you to select the pieces, and their online selection form is very user friendly and efficient. I would absolutely recommend their services to my closets family and friends!!! Thank you VS! :)

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!

My entire experience with the Vanderbilt Strings was seamless, from booking all the way through my wedding. Janie was very prompt and friendly in responding to questions, following up and acknowledging payment was received. On the day of the wedding, they were set up right on time as promised. We had a string trio, and they were exceptional -- very talented and professional. We chose a somewhat untraditional song for our ceremony exit (which was included on their very long list of selections), and several of the guests at the reception were talking about how much they loved it. The Vanderbilt Strings were recommended to me by a friend who booked them for her wedding, and I would absolutely recommend them and hire 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.

Janie, as the group coordinator, was great! Very responsive to all of my questions and concerns. I made a few song requests and trusted the Vanderbilt Strings to fill in the blanks with a broad palate of beautiful music.
