Great musicians and perfect execution on setup and logistics

We had Amethyst Trio play at our wedding in 2019 and we're really happy we chose them. Repertoire was very extensive - all the logistics were talked over the phone and they executed everything perfectly on the day of the event, including setting up in the right spot for the ceremony and plugging in to the rented equipment, and setting up their own amps for a cocktail hour. High quality musicians and really added the cherry on top to ambiance.

Fabulous and professional

I would really appreciate Lara not only because they made our wedding perfect with their music but also they let us know the possible traffic problem due to SF marathon one day ahead and we made time adjustment for the wedding. Our guests enjoy their music so much and I feel lucky I choose them! When I watched their video I made direct decision to choose them. Every penny spent on music is worth. They are very professional and fantastic. Strongly recommend!!!!!

Talented and professional

Lara and the trio provided the ceremony and cocktail hour music for our July 2019 wedding in San Francisco and they were wonderful! They are truly talented musicians and made our day feel that much more special. Their ceremony performance was beautiful and romantic, while they showed off their fun side for the cocktail hour. Lara was also professional and easy to work with. We had only a few interactions before the wedding because she knew her stuff so well, that was all we needed!

We couldn’t be happier with our choice to book Amethyst Trio for our wedding and could not recommend them more highly.
