Radhi from String Poets was awesome. I hired a cellist and violinist from String Poets for the wedding ceremony. I chose three specific Scottish songs for the ceremony, one of which they were familiar with. The other two Radhi had not played before, but he was able to listen to the recordings I sent him to compose the music for the two songs. They were perfect!
Such a nice group and beautiful music for our ceremony. We were outside and then inside for the cock tail reception. All the musicians are delightful to work with. Can play just about any song.
Radhi is great to work with and was a pleasure! The string quartet was great and provided the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I am so happy that I decided on a string quartet for my formal wedding. It really made the wedding more formal and they are awesome! Thank you so much!
We want to thank you for a superb performance during our wedding ceremony. Live music always adds a level of style and sophistication to any event and your group exceeded our expectations for the most important day of our lives. Thank you again for being a primary reason for the success of our big day.
AHHHMAZING! ALL of my guests raved about the poets. I booked a string trio and they were soooo good. I am actually pretty upset I could not hear all of the music I selected (because I was the bride). I saw some of the video that was taken during the ceremony and cocktail hour and they surpassed my expectations.
Radhi did not perform that day, however I communicated with him prior to my wedding day and he was a JOY to work with.
Thank you so very much for being apart of my special day!!! :)
The String Poets played the ceremony and cocktail hour music for our wedding. They are clearly very talented musicians. Their music really enhanced the day and all of our guests raved about their performance.
The reason we are not rating them 5 stars is because we think they could be better communicating with the bride and groom and establishing better plans before the event. We made an appointment to speak with the group contact at a specific time and then he wasn’t available. We later only had a very brief phone call and think it would be have been better to have discussed contacts on the day, contingency plans, etc in advance, but we did not. For example, before the ceremony when there was a risk of rain, they approached the groom and told him that they wouldn’t be able to play because their instruments might get wet. We would have appreciated the groom not having to deal with that right before the ceremony. In the end, our caterer/event planner found a solution. Due to the rain delay, the cocktail hour ran over but the musicians left at the pre-agreed time because we didn’t have a back-up plan.
Thanks for the beautiful music provided during my ceremony and cocktail hour. It was the added touch needed to make my day special. Also thanks for the last minute changes:)
They brought tears to our eyes during our ceremony. They gave our ceremony an extra sense of grandeur for a great value. Their live instrustments set the mood for the rest of our very special and loving day.
String Poets performed at my wedding a few weeks back and I was so happy with the performance. The music was so beautiful I had to try to NOT listen to them so I wouldn't cry so much! I would recommend contacting them today! The only drawback is that they are a little slow to respond and confirm things at times.

Thanks for your great feedback!!!!! We will improve our faster email responses.
Radhi always picks up the phone or calls back within minutes.
I couldn't have been more pleased with the String Poets. They sounded absolutely beautiful. Radhi was great to work with and I hope to have another reason soon to book them again. They also have a huge variety of music selections to choose from. Amazing!
The string poets provided ceremony music as well as cocktail hour music. They did a phenomenal job and I wouldn't have had it any differently. Unfortunately, I didn't get to hear much of the music at the cocktail music but I heard they were great- were fun and played some more modern music during the cocktail hour. They were very easy to work with, very flexible and of course very talented.
The Quartet played beautifully for my ceremony. We had a soloist and the quartet took time to rehearse with her before the ceremony and easily incorporated her with their playing.
CALL THEM!!! not only was I moved to tears just listening to them- but the guests at our ceremony & reception could not stop the compliments. Having String Poets play was definitely the threshold from memorable to unforgettable. They are unbelievably talented.
Radhi and the String Poets performed at our wedding ceremony. They were fantastic. The performance was flawless, and Radhi's assistance in choosing the music for the ceremony was invaluable. We were thrilled. Thank you.
Radhi was incredibly patient with me for the months leading up to my wedding as I decided which songs I wanted played. He was very helpful and flexible with the songs I did pick. I picked some songs that were not on their list but he didn't hesitate in telling me it could be done. The only thing I would recommend would be to send them a copy of your ceremony timeline. There were some times the music began a little late during the ceremony and ended as we just stood their awkwardly. Other than that, the music was beautiful.
From the first time I contacted Radhi Santos from String Poets, he was confident and enthusiastic about performing the ceremony and cocktail hour music for our wedding. He listened to what I wanted the atmosphere to be like, and suggested music to create the happy environment I wanted. Radhi was responsive, super professional, and the trio that played at the wedding sounded incredible. When I think back on my wedding day, one of the things I actually remember is the music String Poets was playing. It was nice not having to worry about this part of the wedding; completely worth it!
I couldn't have been more pleased. These guys sounded just perfect! They played a non-traditional piece for me as I walked down the aisle - Dvorak's Humoresque No.7 as well as other pieces we selected for the reception. They are finely skilled musicians and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a string trio (they also have a string quartet) for their event.
We had the String Poets play at our Catholic ceremony and their music was beautiful! The whole day was a big blur but I knew that the music was great after all of our guests asked about them and complimented them. Then when we watched our video - we again saw how wonderful they were! Highly recommend and Radhi was Super easy to work with!
We were very happy with String Poets, Radhi Santos. Thanks Radhi for making our day special!
The String Poet's did a beautiful job at my wedding. Everyone complimented their music.
I've had the privileged of working with String Poets on several occasions for the ceremony. They are wonderful to work with, professional, and add the special something to the ceremony for the couple. As an officiate, whenever I arrive at the ceremony and see String Poets dong the music I breath a sigh of relief knowing the music will be perfect.
Very professional, they sound wonderful, a really good wedding choice.
Wow. String Poets' musicianship is unparalleled. They do some wonderful covers as well. Really professional and easy to work with. Book them today!

They provide the perfect quiet and meaningful music for a wedding. I highly recommend them for indoor or outdoor weddings!
Excellent ceremony musicians! Nothing makes a ceremony more classy than live musicians, and the String Poets can provide a wide range of music choices. They are professional and have the experience necessary to make your ceremony music a beautiful addition to your wedding day.

Incredible work, def recommend their services.
Beautiful breathtaking music.....and resonable too!!
String Poets was a joy to work with! We photographed a wedding a few weeks ago that they provided the music for the entire wedding. Yes, they played for 5 hours and every song sounded as beautiful as the last. They played with heart, with smiles and even deadicated songs to us. During the last hour of the night they started taking requests. The bride, groom and all of their guests danced as String Poets sight read and performed songs by Michael Jackson and other pop artists. When we met with the bride after the wedding she couldn't contain her zeal while describing String Poets. We can't wait to recommend and work with String Poets!
I loved working with Radhi and the rest of the quartet. They were very professional and easy to work with. They know exactly what my client wanted and and played the music beautifully. I highly recommend them for your next wedding or social event.
