    Highly recommend Ptarmigan String Quartet!

    Ptarmigan String Quartet's music was absolutely beautiful. It set the mood for a wonderful evening. They were wonderful to work with - responsive, asked great questions and worked well with the other wedding vendors. So happy I had the privilege of working with them.

    Excellent! Made our special day perfect!

    Ptarmigan made our wedding ceremony so perfectly complete! In addition to their beautiful music, their responsiveness, flexibility, and overall support for us made a tremendous difference. We hesitated in the beginning about the cost but our experience with them made it worth every penny! I highly recommend them to anyone desiring a rich and beautiful musical addition to a wedding ceremony!
