    The Perfect Touch!

    We had our Raleigh wedding in June 2021 and could not have asked for a better experience. Through COVID, I think we planned half a dozen different weddings as things kept falling through or changing. We ended up coming to Corda Entertainment fairly close to the event, and they helped us through everything without a hitch. We hired a string duo that was absolutely perfect for our 40 person ceremony and reception. Their prices were very reasonable, and they were even able to add two specific songs for our first dance and recessional for a small fee. The musicians were super skilled and professional day-of, and we got rave reviews from guests about how much the live music added to our experience. I am SO glad we went with Corda Entertainment instead of a DJ - I recommend them to anyone who wants to add that special, romantic, and intimate/personal touch to their event!

    Great ceremony music!

    Created the perfect ambiance for our wedding! Having a live string duet playing during our wine ceremony was so special. Thank you Corda!

    Nothing beats live music at a wedding ceremony! It is always a pleasure to work with Corda Entertainment during a ceremony. They are easy to discuss the ceremony with, knowing exactly how and when to extend their play if necessary or to fade out at the right times. Their professionalism and musical skills are awesome.
