As a former violin player, I really wanted to have a violin-cello duo for our wedding and I had some very particular song choices in mind. I spent hours listening to samples from different string groups around the Puget Sound, and we ended up hiring the Seattle String Duo due to a combination of fair, straightforward pricing and their sound samples sounded the best (in tune, the right tempo, etc.). Even though their pricing changed between my initial inquiry and when I formally hired them, they were so kind as to honor the initial estimate.
I worked with Elaine and Jan ahead of time on logistics and song selections and they were very friendly and willing to accommodate, without an extra charge, the specific selections I had in mind, even though it wasn't listed as part of their normal repertoire. Elaine gave me the best advice too-- to make sure to wait a few seconds before making my grand entrance as the bride. :-)
Day of, Barb and Jim played our ceremony and cocktail hour and they were absolutely amazing. Their years of professional experience shone through as they played selections ranging from classical to pop/rock to Disney (our genre choices), which contributed to an elegant atmosphere to our ceremony and cocktail hour.
If you're looking for a string group, don't do what I did and waste a lot of time listening to endless sound samples-- just hire the Seattle String Quartet!Sent on 07/29/2018

We booked their harp player and violinist for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They were wonderful, sounded gorgeous, and our guests were moved by their music. They have a selection of song ideas on their website, but are also open to custom songs (for walking down the aisle to, etc.).Sent on 08/13/2017

It's always a pleasure to work with Elaine. Her team of musicians are fabulous!!! We always recommend them :)
That one time when 48hrs before your clients wedding you learn that their venue has been closed (temporarily) and you are about to start their Rehearsal & Rehearsal Dinner. While it is every planners nightmare I am so blessed in this community as within two hours I had a venue lined up and after spending the entire next day (aka day before the wedding) mapping out plan B with the new venue and 15+ vendors their wedding turned out to be by far one of the best weddings to date! From tableside tea service to amazing floral and yes, even Carson the Butler, the Downtown Abbey inspired wedding was one magical event! I cannot thank Seattle String Quartet enough for being a part of the team who made their wedding day come together. I will forever be grateful to Seattle String Quartet and their continued top notch service to all of my clients!
