    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!

    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.
