Working with Laurie and her team was a breeze. The responsive nature, flexibility and confidence is unmatched. They were able to create a level of emotion that touched not only our hearts but everyone's in the room.
When asked if they could do custom songs for us ("Yellow", "The Feather Song", and "Bang on the Drum All Day") there was no hesitation, almost excitement which she had vocalized that putting arrangements together is one of her favorite activities as a musician. We had people posting on Facebook and coming up to us all night telling us how awesome they were and how unique the music was. "Who plays a string version of 'Bang on the Drums All Day'" one guest asked...well they do! :)
They are totally self-sufficient on the event day. I only realized they were all set up when they started practicing a song that brought tears to so many faces that pictures had to be paused for a brief moment.
And when communicated that the ceremony may last 15-25 minutes longer, her response "no problem". They played through the receiving line with no additional costs.
I would recommend them to anyone!!!

Amazing and professional!!
I LOVED working with Ovation String Quartet for my wedding in December at the St. Paul College Club. Laurie was professional and responded quickly to all of my questions. She also invited us to watch the quartet perform at the Icehouse, and I really appreciated the opportunity to see them perform before the wedding! They have a huge repertoire selection and will take special requests as well. My family sang during our ceremony, and at the last minute (like, the day before the wedding) we decided to ask Ovation to accompany the choir. We sent the arrangement to them and they nailed it! I was extremely pleased with my experience with Ovation and I would recommend them to anyone!!Sent on 01/29/2019

We worked w/ Laurie and the rest of her amazing quartet on New Year's Eve. Everything ran smoothly and they worked well with us to cue the music and get the wedding party down the aisle one by one. Looking forward to working with you again in the future!
Wonderful quartet, such talented musicians! So lovely to work with. :)
Our wedding officiants work with DJ's and musicians. When a couple has hired the people from Ovavtion we are always pleased. Their group understands it is about the ceremony and not the song. The almost every ceremony has some small thing that needs to be accommodated on an extremely short notice. Real professionals like Ovation can improvise and make it look like it was planned.
