Beautiful Music for our Wedding Ceremony and Cocktail Hour

Encore Quartet delivered beautiful music for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They had a wide range of music we could choose from and I was also able to request a song that meant a lot to me, and they played it for my bridal entrance. All of our wedding guests enjoyed their music too and we were so thankful to have them play on our special day. Their music added another special layer to our wedding day!

Just Perfect!

I had Heather and another violinist in addition to a guitarist/vocalist for my wedding ceremony and cocktail reception. They were perfect and make everything just that much better!

Perfection!

Encore Quartet was an amazing part of our wedding! This was a splurge that I was set on and they did not disappoint! They have such a wide selection of music to choose from and we were able to choose all of our music! My siblings sang a song during the ceremony and they were able to rehearse with them prior to the ceremony. Because of the way the venue is set up, the singers were somewhat far away from the quartet making it tough to hear and it was scary for my sisters! Thankfully, the quartet was able to follow and my sister mentioned one member even stood up to assist with the beat to ensure everyone was on beat. The worst part was that as the bride and groom, we only got to hear the quartet play for a few songs- I wish I could’ve listened to them for hours! We decided to do our first “first dance” alone with just the quartet so we could have that special moment, and they were awesome. They were so helpful in the months leading up as well with our questions. We received tons of compliments of how good Encore Quartet was. Couldn’t recommend them enough!
