The Vancouver string Quartet blew me away with their talent. They are extremely professional and provide top of the line quality quartet music. I am a bride that got married June 2021 and originally suppose to had been married 6/2020.Sent on 07/10/2021
When I was walking down the isle, listening to the music, it was everything I have ever hoped for in ceremony music. It was more than I could have ever imagined it to be. Setting the mood to exactly what we wanted. We even requested the group to learn two new songs for us and they were perfect.
We had so many changes and vendors fall through from the previously scheduled date but the Vancouver String Quartet kept their word in every way. I plan to use them in the future for other events. Thank you all for everything!
