    We booked Otherwise Strings for our March 2012 wedding. Mari was great to work from beginning to end. A huge snowstorm came in on the day of my wedding and I was so worried my vendors would not make it, but Mari and her partner were there. They were on time, professional and played wonderfully. The music was so elegant and really made my ceremony. I would definitely recommend Otherwise Strings to any bride!

    We worked with Otherwise Strings for our wedding and are so happy with their services! We had a string trio perform at the ceremony and the cocktail hour, and it was absolutely beautiful! The strings added such a nice touch to our wedding. Mari was so easy to work with. She was very responsive, friendly, and personable. She answered all my questions, and and gave me some great song suggestions. Otherwise Strings also has a large collection of pop/contemporary songs which our guests really enjoyed. Our wedding would not have been the same without Otherwise Strings. I highly recommend them.
