Suzanne was awesome! We met with her twice, once to give the deposit and the second to pick out our music. I didn't have a required list to be played. Suzanne helped us pick out great pieces that went beautifully with our Catholic Ceremony.

Empire Strings did an absolutely amazing job for our wedding. Suzanne was a pleasure to work with and we had absolutely no problems. We hired the trio for our wedding and they were responsive, courteous, professional, arrived on time, reasonably priced and sounded amazing. They... Read More were even willing to travel approximately three hours to get to our wedding, and learned the Ludlows tune from Legends of the Fall just for our wedding. The music was played right on cue, sounded amazing, faded and transitioned without any weird abrupt stops, was just the right volume, and was perfect. We asked them to stay for the reception and they agreed, which was really nice of them as well. I would highly recommend this group of talented women to play at any event!

Beautiful, but pricey!

Suzanne of Empire Strings was very easy to work with and clearly loves the classical music that she and the other members of the quartet perform. She was very professional, and met with us at length for a consultation, and also attended our rehearsal. Both my husband and I... Read More regret that we weren't able to enjoy more of their music, but we did love the little we were able to hear during the processionals. The only downside was the cost: this was definitely a splurge item for us!

Our music was wonderful. Even though we expected them to only play for the ceremony (which took about 30 min) they stayed and played for the full hour that we paid for.

Wonderful, friendly musicians

Working with Cara was great- she was very nice and her and her group did a wonderful job playing at my wedding. You can choose to use fewer players that the 4 in the group if you're having a smaller ceremony and it costs less. A member from the group meets with you at your... Read More rehearsal to be involved with the processional and everything went according to plan during the ceremony and after.
