Monte Vista Strings provided the most beautiful music for my wedding. My wedding was very small and intimate but also a full, traditional Catholic mass. Andrew walked me through all the music and helped me find the most complementary accompaniment for our ceremony. I had a guitar, violin, and vocalist - It was so perfect – moreso than I could have imagined. I only regretted that we didn’t have more people there to hear how beautiful it was.Sent on 08/28/2013

We had Monte Vista Strings for our ceremony and it was just absolutely LOVELY. They were very accommodating with our song choices and there were so many songs to pick from! They even played the Game of Thrones theme song - our guests LOVED it! It was such a beautiful scene with the music in the background and I am SO SO SO glad we chose them to play at our wedding. It made all our guests cry! Highly recommend them!Sent on 09/27/2017

I first met Andrew and his Strings and Jazz ensemble at a wedding downtown San Antonio and was so impressed with his professionalism and the way he just flowed flawlessly with the wedding ceremony. It was so refreshing to work with them. I highly recommend Monte Vista Strings and Jazz for all of your wedding and event needs. You will not be disappointed.
