    Highly Recommend

    We hired Vanguard String Quartet for our wedding after finding their information on WeddingWire and highly recommend them. Their string quartet played during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and were perfect. They know how to play it all - classic wedding songs to top 40 songs, rock, 80s, bluegrass, and more. They were easy to work with, timely in their responses to our questions in the months leading up to the wedding, were flexible to customizations we asked for, and were all around kind and enjoyable to work with. We can’t thank them enough for making our wedding day so perfect!

    Vanguard String Quartet's reply:

    Thank you so much... wish I could write a 5 star review of a bride to be in return! You were just so easy to work with, thorough, and timely.

    Thanks for letting us be a part of your event. Your mom wrote us a really kind note as well.

    AMAZING and immensely talented! Easy to work with

    There are not enough words to describe how thankful and appreciative we are to Vanguard String Quartet. Our wedding ceremony was a bit challenging at times to plan, but they made it so much easier by doing research on their end and for that, we are so grateful. They added so much elegance to our cocktail hour. Our guests loved the song selections they played. One month later we still have guests talking about the quartet and complementing us on them. We will definitely choose/recommend them for any future events.
