One of the best decisions we made was to hire Barton Strings!!! They were absolutely beautiful and so accommodating. Beforehand they were very communicative and sent many options for the various parts of the ceremony. I would hands down hire them again!!

If you are looking for quality live music during your ceremony and cocktail hour that can adjust to your personality and wedding theme, Barton Strings is your best option! They can play just about anything and everything and will make sure to taylor the playlist to fit your needs. I truly enjoyed working with Tracy and the entire Barton Strings team. They performed a special piece for my processional that they had not yet previously performed. We worked together on the parts of the song I wanted played and man did they pull it off! Hearing my processional song just before I walked down the aisle, set the tone for my ceremony and the entire wedding. It was romantic and modern, perfect. I highly recommend them!

Barton Strings, Tracy Seeger - Barton Strings were amazing to work with. They have an extensive list from which to choose your music including both traditional and modern selections. They are also willing to learn songs specifically for your occasion. Having a string quartet was one of my “must haves” from day one and I couldn't be happier with my choice.
My couples always love the beautiful music that Barton Strings provides at their weddings. They are very responsive to phone calls and e-mails which helps to alleviate stress for my couples. They have been on my preferred list for years.
