    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.

    Perfect Addition to Our Wedding

    Having this quartet at our ceremony and elopement brunch was absolutely beautiful. The quality of the musicians is unbeatable and the intake form for songs to prepare for our day was easy and very helpful. The musicians were professionally dressed and delivered a high quality ambiance. Working with the coordinator was a pleasure and they were flexible as our timeline changed slightly. I would definitely book with this group again, and hope to do so when we have our full wedding celebration next year!

    Amazing!!!

    They were a wonderful addition to our summer wedding. So many of the guests enjoyed them during the cocktail hour. Walking down the aisle to that beautiful quartet was like a dream. They have so many options and you can tell they thoroughly enjoy their work. Would definitely recommend them.
