Terra Vista Strings was one of first vendors I booked once I was engaged. Throughout the year and a half of planning the wedding, they were always there with prompt responses and advice when I needed it. The music they played during our ceremony was breath taking. It brought... Read More tears to everyone's eyes with how beautiful it was. We can't thank them enough for creating such a wonderful atmosphere on our most special day.

I hired Terra Vista Strings for my wedding and couldn't have been happier! Anthony was extremely professional and easy to work with. He got back to me right away with any questions and made himself available around my busy work schedule. I loved that they offered traditional... Read More music along with top hits which we combined throughout the ceremony. The unfortunate thing about being the bride is you do all the planning and I didn't get to hear much of their performance because I was in my bridal suite! From what I did hear walking down the aisle and from my wedding video the musicians were fantastic! Ever since I was a little girl I've wanted a string quartet at my wedding. I think it's so classy and beautiful and they definitely lived up to my high expectations. Thank you guys so much for being a special part of our wedding!

Terra Vista was highly recommended by our coordinator and it was easy to see why. Anthony was responsive, professional, and highly knowledgeable about music. Their website and materials make it easy to choose a personalized program and Anthony was there to answer any questions... Read More and give advice when we were uncertain. They transitioned smoothly from a more classical ceremony to a contemporary upbeat vibe for the cocktail hour – they even have some string versions of hip-hop songs!

Anthony and Terravista Strings are absolutely AMAZING!!! They were by far the best part of our wedding. All of our guests loved them and were so impressed! Anthony was great at suggesting what songs to play when and everything just flowed beautifully! We had a couple of songs... Read More that we asked if they can learn and they did such an amazing job! They are by far better than a DJ. We had a very small wedding, about 40 guests and since many of our guests didn't know each other we didn't want an awkward silence during our reception. The music was just the right volume where everyone loosened up and were more relaxed around one another. If you want beautiful music from all genres, Terravista Strings should be your #1 choice! Thank you, Anthony and the rest of the talented quartet!

I wish I could have enjoyed more of TVS, but as the bride was hidden away for most of their playing. The little I did hear was amazing, and everyone was raving about what a sweet and romantic touch it was to our ceremony. Anthony was great to work with leading up to the wedding... Read More and when making our playlist. The ONLY complaint I have (and really hope they change for future events) is their travel policy. They calculate travel fees from the capitol building in Austin and will travel for free anywhere within 25 miles, and charge a per mile fee after that. Our venue was about 28 miles away, and instead of only charging travel fees for those 6 roundtrip miles outside their "free" zone, we were charged for the entire round trip (a hefty sum). I thought that was a terrible policy and frankly made no sense. Wasn't enough to sway me from using TVS and I'm glad, because the quality of their services was great.

Terra Vista Strings is the BEST string quartet in the Austin area hands down! I did extensive research before I chose them and I am glad I did because they did an EXCELLENT job. I met with Anthony shortly before our wedding and he was very helpful and had wonderful ideas to make... Read More sure our ceremony music was cohesive and harmonious. They were open to adding songs outside of their repertoire which I really appreciated. I wanted "It had to be you" played for our recessional and they got it for me and it was played flawlessly!

Thank you guys, keep on shinning!, Love Gloria and Jorge.

Terra Vista Strings was everything I thought I never needed. Let me explain. My mother wanted to book them so badly, and I didn't really care all that much.
