    Extremely talented!

    I recently had the pleasure of working with Columbia River Strings at the Art of Weddings Venue Crawl and I cannot say enough great things about them. Everyone at the event was constantly remarking on how incredibly talented they are. They were amazing to work with and I would recommend them to anyone who needs music at their wedding.

    Columbia River Strings's reply:

    Thanks for inviting us to play this year Rachael. It was a pleasure working with you, and we much look forward to collaborating on more events.

    Lovely addition to our wedding!

    Columbia River Strings was easy to work with and performed beautifully for our wedding ceremony. The site is a little confusing and you have to be the one to reach out to them to ask questions and make sure things are clear, but they respond quickly. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a quartet for an event - they are reasonably priced, professional, and play very well!!!

    Highly recommend Columbia Strings Musicians

    It was a pleasure working with Columbia Strings. Rebecca responded quickly to my emails and answered all our questions in a timely manner. We received lots compliments from family and friends attending our daughter's wedding on how much they enjoyed hearing live music as opposed to a DJ playing during the ceremony. The musicians added a touch of class to our event. Thank you.
