Beautiful wedding music
Stephanie and Fretless Strings were amazing at our wedding. My only regret is that as the bride I didn’t have the opportunity to sit and listen to them the whole time they played. The songs I heard during the cocktail hour were amazing – including some special requests that they had just added to their repertoire for this wedding. And, when I heard them start to play “What a Wonderful World” as my bridesmaids walked in, I teared up from the beauty of it. I heard many compliments from my guests as well, including relatives who are musicians themselves. Also, they were the best vendor I worked with from the perspective of feeling assured everything would work out well before the wedding. Stephanie's responses were fast and full of warmth. Finally, hiring them is more economical than you may think! If you are watching your music budget, I highly suggest hiring them (which will cost you less than most DJs), since you can easily Spotify your own playlist for dancing later but the beauty of this live music is something you cannot create yourself.Sent on 06/06/2019

Stephanie was such a pleasure to work with. She was flexible and understanding (Corona Bride here!) She was thoughtful throughout all our communication as was more than happy to accommodate us when we had to downsize our wedding. I'm so glad we decided to still have a string duo - it made the day so special and they are also sooo talented!! Our party of 8 raved about them all weekend!Sent on 06/18/2020
Fretless Music's reply:Yasmin, you were such a pleasure to work with as well! We're so happy we could still find a way to play a part in your beautiful ceremony and cocktail hour despite the changes we all had to make. Thank you for your trust!

Best addition to our wedding!
We wanted our wedding to be super formal, but still fun and not stuffy. Fretless Strings was the perfect addition to accomplish that. The classical sound of the string instruments paired with pop and rock songs was a huge hit. It didn’t take our guests long to realize they weren’t playing your usual classic music and they loved it.Sent on 02/26/2020
Working with them was so easy. Stephanie was incredibly nice and responsive, and booking with them was so quick and easy. They really made our day something very special and unique and we couldn’t be happier. The only challenging part is being the bride or groom and trying to enjoy it fully and still talk with all your guests. I hope I have a chance to attend someone else’s wedding where Fretless Strings is playing!
Fretless Music's reply:You were such a joy to work with, Kate. Thank you for including us in your beautifully crafted wedding. Take care and best wishes!
