My husband and I recently got married in an outside venue. We knew that we wanted a string quartet for our ceremony. I came to wedding wire to look for local musicians and came across Quartet442. Their website was great! I loved being able to hear them play right on the site. I emailed Elise and received a prompt response. Throughout the process Elise was incredible, she helped us pick our music and was open to music outside of their original repertoire. The day of, the music was everything I had hoped for and more. Elise and Quartet442 truly exceeded our expectations. The music was beautiful and emotional. I will always remember walking down the aisle to their rendition of canon in d with my father and I thank them for that memory.

Wow!! Nothing but great things to say! The quartet arrived early and started playing early due to guests arrival time. Everyone loved the live music and how amazing they sounded!! In all seriousness, my guests raved about the music and how great it was opposed to a recording or a single musician. Elise, was great to work with and made sure every detail was perfect. Highly would recommend for anyone looking for a string quartet!!

Elise and the rest of her quartet made our day so special. We are both big classical music fans and amateur classical music musicians (the bride having played in a few quartet weddings herself) so were very picky about who would be playing and what they would play. We gave them some very challenging selections , which they played absolutely beautifully, quite literally bringing people to tears. (One of our guests told me that specifically....)
I also commissioned them to arrange a somewhat obscure indie rock song for our recessional--the original arrangement of which includes some strange instrumentation to wrestle with, including a horn section and a saw.... Not only did they do an absolutely perfect job of it, but they did so in a way that captured the uplifting mood that we wanted for our recessional, which was not an easy task!
Throughout the whole process, Elise was communicative, engaged, and enthusiastic and was able to give us expert guidance in our selections and on timing.
These guys are all incredibly talented and unbelievably reasonably priced and they also are capable of arranging just about anything in a way that can transform the entire day.
We were impressed and are so grateful.
