The one thing that I really want for our ceremony was a string quartet. I had to compromise and have a trio instead for budget reasons, but I was not disappointed. White Lake Quartet was incredible! I worked with Christine and the process to select music was made fairly easy using song lists from their website. The music was absolutely beautiful and it was the perfect enhancement to my day. Everything was great!

Christine from the White Lake Quartet was extremely helpful and professional throughout our wedding planning experience. I was so excited to hire the trio for our wedding after looking through their extensive repertoire list! Even though we were using the trio for our ceremony and cocktail hour, we were able to choose songs from the quartet's repertoire list as well. We had an incredible selection of music to choose from - classic, fun, contemporary, broadway -- We had so much fun choosing the music.

Christine was available to answer any and all of my questions. She also even offerred to help with choosing music if needed. She was able to help us decide how many songs to play for each part of our wedding. Overall, she was extremely professional and we felt comfortable putting our trust in her to do a wonderful job. They did not let us down!

As the bride, I remember standing outside of the doors of our ceremony ready to walk in, and I heard the strings playing "Yellow" by Coldplay for our bridal party to walk into. It was so beautiful -- breathtaking how wonderful they sounded. The sound filled the room - and it truly was a very special moment for me. For my processional and the bridal processional - the music was equally touching -- and I knew that the trio truly made the day perfect for us.

We had MANY compliments from our guests for how beautiful the trio sounded. And I could not have been happier with their help and support before the wedding. If you're looking for a great string group to work with - professional - trustworthy - The White Lake Quartet is that group!

October 15, 2011 Wedding: Not too long after becoming engaged, I started searching for a string quartet for our ceremony music for our wedding. Christine Wiest responded to my email inquiry promptly and answered all of my questions. Upon reviewing their repertoire list, and listening to their sample music on their website, I knew they were absolutely perfect.

Throughout the year leading up to the wedding, Christine was an absolute joy to work with. Not only did she make herself 100% available for my questions through email and phone, but she gave great suggestions when I asked for help in picking out my ceremony music and even arranged a song that wasn't even on the repertoire list that I had asked for. Christine also coordinated a rehearsal with the cantor/vocalist I used at the church and was in contact with my priest to make sure all arrangements for the timing of mass were perfectly in order.

The day of the wedding came and the music was even more beautiful than I imagined. So many guests came up to me and commented on how it was the most beautiful wedding music they had ever heard at any other wedding. I can't thank Christine enough for her superb and personable customer service throughout the entire planning process, and the entire quartet for adding so much emotion and beauty to our wedding ceremony through their performance. I would use them again in a heartbeat and will be recommending them to every bride I know. The White Lake Quartet is wonderful in every way...thank you all again!!!

Sorry, don't recall right now how much they cost (may update this review later) but were well worth the money. Music plans kept changing but they stayed flexible and very professional. Guests complimented how beautifully they played the classic ceremony music (Canon in D, Wedding March, etc.) but also their wide range of music for the cocktail hour (ranging from Sinatra, Gershwin, and the Beatles to Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, and the Verve). They even learned The Beatles' "Here There & Everywhere" so that I could dedicate it special to my parents. My only problem was that I had to be called out of the room for pictures and was unable to hear all of their beautiful music myself....but my guests loved it all.

I purchased their service for my fiance as a surprise. My wife to be really wanted to have some strings playing canon in d while she walked down the aisle. To be honest the company brought alot of class to our ceremony. They were on time, professionally dressed, and their harmony was amazing.
