About this Vendor
Reliable, Honest, Award-Winning String Quartet!
Harmony Strings is a professional String Quartet in Houston, Texas. What sets us apart from others (aside from the number of awards & our extensive repertoire)? This review gets straight to the point: "Since you always get the same musicians with this group no matter the event, we trusted their reviews more than some of the others that provide whatever musicians are available that day." We have had the honor of performing for thousands of weddings over the years, and we are pleased that we have won 19 awards. It is gratifying to be recognized for our dedication to our craft, but we honestly owe it all to our wonderful couples! Rest assured we are a professional String Quartet, not an agency, so you will be speaking directly with the musicians who will be performing at your event.

Harmony Strings Quartet played at my wedding and brought tears to everyone's eyes because their music was so beautiful! They played a 30 minute prelude and then for the processional, presentation of the bride etc.. Melody was wonderful to work with and very prompt in returning emails and answering questions. Harmony Strings has a wonderful selection of contemporary and traditional songs and they will even arrange a new song for you. I chose Wild Horses by the Rolling Stones and their version of it was amazing! Melody sent me a copy of the arrangement prior to the wedding and asked if I was satisfied with it or if there was anything I'd like to change. I thought it was perfect but also though it was cool that they were open to different arrangements and really cater to your preferences! I highly recommend booking Harmony Strings for your wedding!!
Melody is a dream to work with, and was very responsive as we sorted out the details of a playlist for her string trio to play at our July 2016 wedding. We received so many compliments on the quality of the music from our guests, and the magical tone they set for the event. They even learned one of my favorite Chopin nocturnes to play for the occasion! Since you always get the same musicians with this group no matter the event, we trusted their reviews more than some of the others that provide whatever musicians are available that day.
Harmony Strings is the BEST choice for a string quartet! Working with Melody was an absolute pleasure. She made sure to respond to all my emails in a timely manor, they learned a custom song just for me and sent me an example of the arrangement to make sure I loved it, and most importantly they played beautifully! It really made my wedding that much more special and elegant. I could not recommend them more!!
Harmony Strings did an outstanding job playing at our daughter's wedding. The entire process from booking until the ceremony was stress free. Melody truly cares that the music is exactly what you want and will work with you on choices etc. She is exceptionally polite and professional and responds to any questions very quickly. Their music was absolutely beautiful and we highly recommend them! Thank you so much Harmony Strings for being such a special part of our wedding day! :)
I had an incredible experience with Melody and Harmony Strings for my wedding!! Melody was extremely easy to work with. She knew what I wanted and she made it happen instantly. The communication was instant- which made planning much easier on my end. The music during the wedding was absolutely beautiful, and I've heard nothing but great feedback from my guests. I highly recommend Harmony Strings!
They were great! Easy to work with and worked with my vocalist. Would definitely recommend.
Harmony Strings played for the ceremony of my Daughter's wedding and during cocktail hour. They were the perfect touch to the romantic service and did a beautiful job. Melody was wonderful to work with and I would not hesitate to use them for any event in the future!
There are a lot of decisions to make when planning a wedding, and the first and easiest decision for us was that we would have a string quartet play during our ceremony. We chose Harmony Strings, and they were fantastic! They played beautifully during the prelude, the ceremony and the cocktail hour, honoring all of our requests for both classical and contemporary music. Harmony Strings set the perfect tone for our recent wedding at the Parador in Houston.
Harmony Strings recently played for my daughter's wedding ceremony at Briscoe Manor in Richmond, TX. Melody worked with my daughter on the music selections and what they chose was absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend them if you are considering a string quartet for your wedding ceremony.
Harmony Strings is seriously the BEST! We had the string quartet perform at our wedding at Briscoe Manor and they were phenomenal! The acoustics there are just perfect. The strings filled the chapel with the best sound, making our day even more magical. Melody was wonderful to work with and very responsive when I need to get in touch with her. Everything was very organized from song selection to the timeline for the ceremony!
Loved the music!
Harmony Strings was the very first vendor we booked, almost two years ahead of time. My dream was always to have a string quartet play at our wedding and the second we heard them…we had to book them. Melody and her group were amazing. She was able to answer all my questions beforehand and help me pick out music. They have a large selection ranging from classical to modern day music. The day of our wedding they arrived early and the music was amazing. They were able to play music to accommodate our wedding and with everyone walking down the aisle. We can’t thank them enough for making our wedding amazing and would recommend them any day of the week….they are by far the best string quartet in Houston!
Perfect choice!Reviewed on 1/19/2016
Harmony Strings played during the ceremony for my daughters wedding at the Kingwood Country Club on January 16, 2016. The beautiful live music added such an elegant touch to the ceremony. Melody was so easy to work with and made the booking process and planning very easy. She made us feel like they were as happy to be a part of our night, as we were to have them for our night. I highly recommed them!

Melody was a pleasure to work with! Music was beautiful for both the wedding and the cocktail hour.
Beautiful!Reviewed on 12/07/2015 Victoria D
These girls did an absolutely amazing job. They were bright and just flowed so well. We had a Catholic wedding and the cantor sounded so pretty singing my Responsorial psalm and Gloria. They even helped to contact my church's music director directly to make sure they got the music absolutely right for my church's flow...
Harmony SringsReviewed on 11/01/2015
Harmony Strings created the perfect atmosphere for our wedding! We chose the 4 string quartet to begin the most beautiful wedding starting with classical music during the service, then melding into "Sinatra" style before the DJ began as we were seated for dinner. Just lovely. Very professional and helpful to get it just right! Very reasonable too! I can't wait to find another reason to use Harmony Strings again!
Made our Ceremony SpecialReviewed on 11/01/2015
The addition of a string quartet to our small (60 guests) outdoor wedding gave the ceremony an incredible special ambiance, setting a little formal tone to a simple and nature oriented ceremony. The music was beautiful. Melody couldn't have been better to work with. She was always prompt to respond and worked with us to ensure we had just what we wanted and helped us with suggestions. Everything was in writing so we always knew there were no surprises. Highly recommend them. They were absolutely wonderful!
AmazingReviewed on 10/31/2015
Melody and team were amazing at my wedding. I requested 3 special songs and every time they found some way to accommodate. I highly recommend the Harmony Strings for any event, worth every dime...correction dollar.
Classy and SophisticatedReviewed on 10/30/2015
Without a doubt, this quartet added a classiness and sophistication you can't just "buy", which made our wedding ceremony not just beautiful, but even more memorable and meaningful to all parties attending (young and old.) They enhanced an atmosphere of elegance. We chose a mostly classic repertoire of selections, from Bach to Handel and they were all played beautifully. One, "pop song" we chose -- "1000 years" -- was rendered gorgeously, as if it were from the renaissance period: even prettier than the original. In my years attending weddings, I've heard good and bad quartets, so I can say with authority that Harmony Strings is great! Beyond their skill, there is a comforting aspect to hiring them: They are one less, "unknown" in the uncertainty of wedding ceremony planning, when multiple vendors must work 'in concert' for a successful evening. Harmony Strings never missed a note!
Helped make our wedding just that much more special.Reviewed on 10/25/2015 Victoria P
Off the bat, I knew two things: 1. I wanted to use a stringed quartet during our ceremony. 2. It would be tough to find a good one because we had specific requests. Harmony Strings was by far, the easiest, and best vendor that we used for our wedding. Melody is an excellent contact that was very courteous, as well as prompt with her responses. She is very detail oriented, and made sure their product matched exactly what I wanted. We had the group play while people were seating for the ceremony, the processional song, as well as the departure song. However, we opted for songs that were not the typical wedding style, and by providing them with two video samples, they created an original medley for our processional song. They have a large repertoire to choose music from, but are also open to learning new pieces of music, for $90 each piece. I booked them about a year before our wedding, and during that, they learned four new pieces, and kept in constant contact via e-mail with me, to send me updates or midi samples of the songs, when the music sheets were completed. Choosing Harmony Strings is not something you'll regret, if you're looking for high quality, easy to work with vendors, and want to add an unique touch to your wedding. Of all the things to stress over in planning, and DURING a wedding, they were never a point of concern for me.
AMAZING JOB!Reviewed on 8/03/2015 Cara C
Harmony Strings just played at our wedding at Hotel ZaZa in Houston, TX. They did such a fabulous job! From the time I started working with them, they were quick to respond, listened to our requests and played so beautifully throughout our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Thank you Melody and the whole group for making our day so wonderful!! 08/01/2015 Cara and Brian

Harmony Strings made my wedding perfection. They did an amazing job and I highly recommend them!
Excellent String EnsembleReviewed on 6/14/2015 Candace C
I hired Harmony Strings as a string trio to perform the music for my wedding ceremony. They were extremely professional in all communications and actions, and their performance was excellent. They even went out of their way to bring an extra music stand at our request so that our pastor could use it as his podium. We highly recommend this group.
Wonderful QuartetReviewed on 4/28/2015 allison f
The Harmony Strings quartet added the PERFECT touch to my chateau wedding! Melody at Harmony Strings was always quick to respond to any emails, very flexible when I changed our timeline/my mind, and always ready to make suggestions or recommendations when I was unsure of something. I was a rather indecisive Bride, and Melody was able to guide me through the selection process for the pieces played during the ceremony. I also didn't give her a specific list of songs to play before the ceremony- or during the cocktail hour- which let them use their professional judgement. It turned out FANTASTIC! They played some of my classical favorites before the ceremony, and did a good mix of classical and more modern during cocktail hour. I couldn't have chosen the songs better myself. They are very talented, and I received so many compliments from all the guests after my wedding! Having a string quartet play was really a perfect complement to the rest of my wedding. Thank you Harmony Strings for a job very well done- I can't recommend you highly enough.
