    Beautiful with a Modern Twist!

    Amazing String Quartet! I hired Sweetwater Strings to play all modern music on the string quartet. Think Bridgerton! Unfortunately, as the bride, I missed pretty much all of it, but I’ve heard many great things! They even were able to adapt Shipping Up To Boston for my wedding entrance! I highly recommend – great value, easy to book, and a beautiful touch to the ceremony!

    Sweetwater Strings's reply:

    We were so pleased to add to your special day and received many compliments from your guests. Best wishes to you both!

    Beautiful Touch to our Wedding!

    Sweetwater stream was absolutely amazing. It was the perfect touch to our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They played beautifully, they played all the songs I requested and they were on time. Great experience, if you’re looking for a violinist choose them!

    Sweetwater Strings's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts, and were honored to be a part of your big day! Best wishes to you both!
