    Excellent Quartet

    Viva la Strings is a must-have for your wedding day. We used them for the ceremony and during cocktail hour, and all of our guests complimented us on the quartet and the music selections. 10/10 recommend!

    Beautiful Ceremony & Cocktail Hour

    I am so happy I chose Viva La Strings for my backyard wedding. Pendra was quick to respond, flexible, and made the booking and scheduling process very easy.

    The quartet played for both the ceremony and cocktail hour, and they sounded beautiful. Their repertoire is huge too- they played a Michael Jackson medley...just to give you an idea of what they're capable of!

    My sister recommended Viva La Strings and I am so glad they played at my wedding. You won't be disappointed!
