    Superb musicians

    The music all day was so beautiful. They actually played our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception so they set the scene with their beautiful music for the entirety of our wedding day. They really upgraded our wedding into a more sophisticated event just with their presence. They were very easy to work with, I sent them our music choices and the timeline beforehand and they handled the rest. Our wedding was so much easier because we didn’t have to worry about the music. We highly recommend them.

    Beautiful Music

    Skylight City Quartet played the most beautiful music at our wedding ceremony and dinner. We wanted musicians who could easily transition from ceremony mode to reception mode and they did just that! Our families complimented their music all night long. They are all extremly talented musicians! We are so happy we got the chance to work with them and if we could work with them all over again, we would do so in a heartbeat!
