    Wonderful Musicians and So Easy to Work With!

    We hired a string duet from Penn Strings to play for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They sounded fabulous, even in the outdoor setting where our wedding took place, and had a great set list of contemporary covers that gave our garden wedding a real Bridgerton vibe :).

    Leading up to the big day, Susanne coordinated all of the logistics, and she was such a pleasure to work with. I honestly looked forward to her emails because she was so kind and encouraging as we entered the final stressful days of wedding planning. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend working with Penn Strings to any other couple looking to add some class and elegance to their wedding day.

    Beyond Words!

    What do I recommend about Penn Strings?! Absolutely EVERYTHING! My husband and I got married in October, and choose the string trio for our wedding day to play both our ceremony, as well as cocktail hour. Initially, my husband was the one who suggested Penn Strings as the first vendor choice after we got engaged last year. He had been to a wedding previously where he had the pleasure of first seeing and hearing them perform. After only one soundclip from their website, it was an absolute YES from myself as well! As a former violin player, I have an absolute love and appreciation for both classic and contemporary string music. And let me tell you, they know their music. We were absolutely blown away by the variety of songs in both categories that they are able to play for your special day! We were first introduced to Susanne, who wound up also being our incredible officiant besides. She was so thorough and informative through the process, and made the seemingly overwhelming decision of choosing music for both our ceremony and cocktail hour, a very easy and smooth process. Even offering up suggestions for appropriate songs that we would otherwise know nothing about. Chris and the ladies made our wedding day absolutely magical with their beautiful music! I had always dreamed of walking down the aisle to Pachelbel, and they made that the most beautiful reality that I could have ever imagined. They were so beyond friendly, accomodating, professional and talented. Our guests truly enjoyed every second of them playing, and could not stop complimenting on their performance. By choosing Penn Strings, and this beautiful live performance, our wedding day was transformed into some of the most magical moments of our life. I will never forget that walk down the aisle! They offer extremely affordable packages for every type of occasion, and song lists that will fit every single persons taste of music. We could not be more grateful to Susanne, Chris, and Penn Strings for making out wedding day the best day ever! And for making the whole process of planning everything such a smooth ride! Thank you again for everything!

    Penn Strings was great to work with all the way up to the wedding. A lot of different song selections that all sounded beautiful on the day of our wedding. Would definitely use them for another event!
