What We Do
We know that planning a wedding is tricky, in fact, Jared is scheduled to get married in September of this year (congrats, Jared!) ... there is so much more to booking wedding music than just the musical product itself. Our professionalism, expertise, personability, talent and passion will be present from the very first moment- put simply, we are here for YOU, every step of the way.
As a team of professionals, we specialize in booking musicians for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and receptions. We work with a variety of groups—from string quartets to jazz bands. Because music is an integral part of telling your love story and celebrating it, our musicians deliver exceptional performances each and every time.
Different than other groups, our full-time job is to solidify the best wedding musicians for your day, including the performers, instruments, types of songs, length of play time, and more. As 2017 and 2018 Couples' Choice Award Winner on WeddingWire and 2018 and 2019 The Knot Best of Weddings Award Winner, we are committed to providing couples with live music they will cherish for many years to come.
Through our custom Wedding Music Planning Portal, we’ll help you choose the music styles and songs you want. You’ll also be able to access your contract, build your wedding music timeline, and utilize our Ceremony & Cocktail Hour Playlist Designer tool. Most importantly, you’ll be able to bring your exact vision to life.

Jared was amazing through the planning process! He was so responsive to my emails and was helpful in answering any questions I had. On the day of my wedding, the music before, during, and after the ceremony was beautiful! I highly recommend Dream City Strings!Sent on 06/14/2018

As the MOB, I hired Dream City Strings early on in the planning process and so glad I did. My daughter picked out all the music and it was absolutely beautiful. They were great to work. We did have to move the ceremony inside due to rain and the quartet ended up having to stay longer due to a late arriving bus with our guests. They were understanding and we worked this situation out on Monday after the wedding. I can't wait for the wedding video since I want to hear their beautiful music again. I highly recommend this group for your wedding ceremony music.Sent on 09/27/2019

They did an amazing job. They played beautifully and it was just perfect.Sent on 06/20/2019
Nancy (violin) and Jared (cello), two of Dream City Music's professional musicians, added so much romance and elegance to the intimate wedding I officiated at Lake Geneva Inn. They played traditional wedding favorites, such as Cannon in D and favorite contemporary love songs as well. I hope to work with them again soon!
