Golden Scroll Soloists is a fantastic vendor and I highly recommend them! Marianne, the music coordinator, was super helpful and responsive - from selecting the specific songs for the quartet to play to assisting with hiring a cantor for the ceremony. The string quartet was... Read More absolutely amazing at our wedding mass. My husband and I both have backgrounds in music and wanted to ensure we had professional quality musicians at our ceremony, and the four instrumentalists completely exceeded our expectations. Our cantor, Matt Burke, who Marianne recommended, was also outstanding. The combination of the string quartet and tenor voice was just perfect and sounded so beautiful. I had several guests approach me at the reception to say that the church music was the best they had ever heard. Thank you to Golden Scroll for making our ceremony so special!

Being a cellist and coming from a musical family I knew I wanted strings at my wedding. We found the Golden Scroll Soloists online and immediately gave Marianne a call to find out more. She called me back very quickly and we had a lovely conversation about the vision for our... Read More wedding ceremony. She was knowledgeable and friendly and sent me samples of the pieces that the string quartet could perform. We wanted music for just the ceremony (as people were seated, prelude, hymn and recessional) and were were very impressed by the amount of both classical and contemporary pieces in their repertoire. When we booked the Golden Scroll Soloists, it was so much fun putting together our music using their online site (and it made planning from a distance very easy). We found selections that reflected our eclectic love of classical, rock and movie soundtracks. On the wedding day the quartet showed up promptly (even during the snowstorm we had) and set up. Although I didn't hear all of the music (I was in the bridal suite getting ready), my family and friends had rave reviews of the music. During the ceremony, they remembered all the important parts to play and really set the tone for such a special moment. If you want strings at your ceremony or cocktail hour, do not hesitate and contact the Golden Scroll Soloists. They did an amazing job. Thank you!

Couldn't have been more happier, with choosing 'Golden Scroll Soloists'. As a little girl I always dreamed of having a string quartet, for my Wedding Day. It's a must for those wanting to add Class & Romance on your Wedding Day. I went through their song lists and... Read More comprised my perfect set, for my guests to enjoy. I also requested my favorite piece, they didn't have & they decided it was a great addition to their song list * (Somewhere in time) I had them play for the cocktail hour as well & added 15 extra minutes, for our guests to further enjoy. I highly recommend you take the time to pick your songs, to reflect your personal style. Definitely one my favorite Vendors, very professional & easy to work with. Thank you for everything, our Wedding was Flawless 💗

We got married in July 2016 and we hired the Golden Scroll Soloists (GSS) to play during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! Prior to the wedding, I had a few specific requests regarding how we wanted our ceremony music played and the Golden Scroll Soloists were able to... Read More accommodate exactly what we wanted! I cannot express how happy I am that we chose to use the Golden Scroll Soloists. Communicating with Kevin and Marianne was great as well! They were very thorough and they made the entire process, from start to finish, so stress-free! The musicians are so talented and the songs they're able to play are awesome! We picked a lot of popular pop songs to be played during cocktail hour and all of them were such a huge hit with our guests! A couple of days after our wedding, one of our close friends told us that they had booked GSS for their 2017 wedding because they loved how awesome they sounded at our wedding! I highly recommend using the Golden Scroll Soloists for at least your ceremony and cocktail hour music! Trust me, I've been to a lot of weddings, and personally I think that having live music played during your ceremony shows guests that you really care about the beauty of your wedding. I HIGHLY recommend booking the Golden Scroll Soloists as soon as possible. They're truly awesome and I'm sure they're already booking up for 2017!

I am very pleased with my decision to book the golden scroll soloist for my wedding. My wedding was on 8.21.2016 at the Riverview and I would say without a doubt that having these musicians there put an amazing touch on the ceremony and cocktail hour. Not only are they extremely... Read More professional but very flexible. A couple of instances with them have led me to praise them greatly, for example , one of the persons that previously was there was amidst transitioning leadership and was unable to contact me and this made me very worried! When I finally got into contact with him not only was he extremely empathetic and apologized , her offered me a total complete refund ! Nevertheless I denied the refund because I still wanted to work with them but I was so happy with that customer service. Secondly Marianne was so trustworthy, she had a meeting with me to go over all of my questions and concerns and assure me that everything would go smoothly that day! Lastly they accommodated all of my special song requests and played them AMAZINGLY , with 2 weeks to the wedding I wanted an African hymnal played during the signing of the marriage certificate and they were able to learn in and play it excellently. I am extremely blown away with them and I wish i could get married all over again to have them there!

I hired Golden Scroll Soloists to play the prelude, ceremony, and cocktail hour for my October 11, 2015 wedding. From my initial communication with them, Kevin Bishop (the ensemble's coordinator and viola player) was incredibly responsive to all my questions throughout the... Read More process. GSS's prices are incredibly competitive with other string ensembles in the area. GSS has a wide selection of music that you can choose from. My only regret from the entire wedding day is that, as the bride, I barely got to hear them play due to photo-taking, hiding away before the ceremony, and all the other things brides have to do. I did get to hear the songs during the ceremony, of course, and I caught a few of the songs played during cocktail hour. They sounded even better live than they do on their YouTube sample recordings. My mother could not stop gushing about how wonderful they were (and she said when they played Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, everyone got goosebumps). I am very, very pleased with GSS and highly recommend them to any bride.

I did a lot of research on a string quartet for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and Golden Scroll Soloists by far outshone all others. First, they are very affordable. Second, they do an incredibly beautiful job and have such a wide selection of musical pieces that you are... Read More bound to find what you want. After hearing them perform prior to the wedding, we actually also had them play at my bridal shower, the ceremony, and cocktail hour. The biggest plus to me was how flexible Kevin was about the music. I wanted the bridal party entrance and bride's entrance to be seamless, but also wanted the bride's entrance to be at a specific point in the music, so Kevin worked with me to extend the piece and make that happen. The only negative thing I have to say is that Kevin does not always answer your specific questions in emails, but rather responds with generic comments about the process or how things work. You're better off just calling him to get direct answers.
