Outdoor ceremony music

I was looking for a string quartet to play at my outdoor wedding ceremony. We had a band booked for the reception but I wanted something elegant and intimate for the ceremony. Ocean Strings was a perfect fit and Nicole was so easy to work with. My biggest challenge was choosing from the numerous pieces they can perform but they offered helpful suggestions regarding the mood of the pieces. I trusted them and they did not disappoint.
