A beautiful performance that exceeded our expectations! 5 Stars!

I can't say enough good things about Wilmington Strings. The beautiful performance by the string quartet elevated my son's entire wedding ceremony. We received so many complements about the ceremony music from our guests. Truly, the program WS provided didn't simply meet our expectations; it exceeded them. Aside from the music itself, Kathleen from WS was patient with us, prompt in responding, helpful in planning, and attentive to every detail. The cost of their services we received was quite reasonable. Five stars on everything!
