It was such a pleasure to work with Antonia and Anthology Strings. They provided such beautiful music at our wedding! Is there anything more romantic than walking down the aisle to the serenade of a String quartet? They made our ceremony so unique and special, and blended perfectly into the Mass. They continued to play at our cocktail hour in the garden and guests were so impressed with them that I heard people saying, “I’m going to have an event soon so I can have them play at it.” They set a sophisticated, relaxed and joyous tone. While they are serious and professional musicians, they are also charming and engaging entertainers. We feel so lucky to have found them. Antonia was a pleasure to work with, as she is both organized and enthusiastic. We highly recommend Anthology Strings to any couple looking for beautiful music at their wedding.
We wanted to take a moment to express how impressed we were with DJ Gaza (Gary) and DJ Mandy Graves at our wedding last night! The introduction, toasts, and flow of the evening went smoothly and appeared effortless. She got the party started with an early dance set before dinner and it continued all night long with a full dance floor for the last song! She was able to read the crowd and adjust when the list we had provided wasn't what the crowd wanted. She figured out the crowd and had everyone, young and old, up and dancing.
From the moment we met Gary and Mandy, we knew we had made the right decision. They were so organized and professional. They listened to us and heard what we wanted and understood our vision quickly and accurately. I appreciated that Gary had deadlines for us to provide a request list and a timetable for the flow of the reception, because it made us think about these things ahead of time rather than at the last minute. Everyone at our wedding had a wonderful time, including us! People danced, ties and coats came off, and guests worked up a sweat. Exactly what we envisioned.
Like many couples, we have very busy lives, and we were hesitant to even begin the process of planning a wedding. However, what we found that the key was to find talented, enthusiastic professionals who want to help you achieve your vision. Gary and Mandy are the ultimate examples of that! Thank you again for being part of our special day. As one guest said, "it was the party of a lifetime."
