Samantha and the whole team at Sienna Strings were incredible. We selected them for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and could not have been more pleased with the entire process, from quote to performance! The musicians were early, appropriately dressed, played impeccably, and had a friendly, positive energy! The pricing is reasonable and it was such a special touch to have the live trio playing for such a special moment as the ceremony, versus a DJ. We custom-selected two songs that were not in Sienna’s repertoire (Here, There and Everywhere & All My Loving, by The Beatles) for a very reasonable fee that was meant only to cover their purchase of the arrangements. For the cocktail hour, Sienna Strings had dozens of songs that were perfect for the setting, and we chose our favorites (including the Game of Thrones theme as a wink and a nod to close it out!) My father-in-law has mentioned three(!) times now how having strings during our ceremony and cocktail hour was the classiest touch we could have had and really set the tone for a classy event. He is normally pretty tough to please, but his repeated compliments speak testament to how much Sienna Strings added to our special day! I can’t say enough positive about the service and performance, and would absolutely recommend Sienna Strings to any friends, for any events that might benefit from a live trio or quartet!
Sienna Strings made all the difference in the ambiance of our wedding! Their performance was absolutely GORGEOUS and our guests raved about this addition to our ceremony. If you are on the fence about choosing strings for your wedding, hop on over and book Sienna Strings, you won't regret it. Also, they were one of the easiest vendors to deal with, no fuss, easy communication and professional service. Hands down, one of our favorite parts of our wedding!
I wish I had found Samantha and Sienna String Quartet sooner! I had already booked and paid a deposit for another string ensemble when I discovered that I would need to pay another large sum of money to get them to play/learn the very popular songs, "Fools Rush In" and "Stand By Me" during my ceremony. Out of desperation, I began searching for another ensemble and was upset that I would possibly have to lose my deposit and hire someone new. Then I found Sienna String Quartet, and Samantha came to my rescue!!! Not only did she already have all of the songs that I was requesting in her repertoire, but she allowed me purchase the sheet music from her so that I would not have to lose a deposit and hire someone new. Not only was Samantha an excellent communicator, prompt and informative with her responses, and extremely prepared for any modern day wedding, she was exceedingly accommodating and helpful . I cannot thank you enough for your kindness and willingness to work with me! Like I said before, I wish I had found you sooner. With gratitude, Emilie
They were AMAZING! Samantha, the contact person is so easy to work with, quick to respond to questions or concerns before the event. I had requested a song they have not played before, and they had absolutely no problem getting the music and making my dreams happen! They have a great selection and mix of classical songs and modern songs! As a musician myself I had a few requests for versions or the way I would prefer to have a song played and they made it happen perfectly! The week of the event they checked in to confirm. Which as a scatter brained bride makes you feel SO good that your day will run smooth! They were on time, were dressed professionally, and played BEAUTIFULLY, even in spite of seriously windy weather not a sheet of music went flying! They were an awesome addition to the ceremony, it was magical and felt like a scene out of a movie! I cannot thank them enough! I would HIGHLY recommend this lovely group of musicians!
This may sound silly, but ever since I saw the Little Mermaid as a child, it has been my dream to have a Stringed Quartet play at my wedding. Samantha was wonderful to work with. I had my heart set on a few songs and they had no problem learning them for our wedding. Right before I walked down the aisle I could hear them playing and my heart filled with joy because it was exactly how I had alway imagined. They are all so talented, they worked with my budget and on top of all of that they played some amazing music. Our venue was in the Dripping Springs, with beautiful weather, beautiful scenery, and to make it even better beautiful music. Thank you Sienna Strings for making my wedding the wedding of my dreams!
So happy I chose this group. They played traditional songs as well as newer, fun songs. It sounded beautiful at the wedding...especially having the quartet. I contemplated having a trio but the quartet was awesome! The sound is so nice outside :) Easy to work with!
I highly recommend Sienna String Quartet if you are looking for live music for your ceremony. They were easy to work with and helped me put together the perfect song list. They are so talented and their music made our wedding ceremony extra special!
