Professional and Beautiful!
We used Candlelight Strings for our June 1st wedding and could not be more pleased. They were so professional and flexible. When I made a special song request they happily played the music for me! I would 100% recommend using this wonderful group of people!Sent on 06/25/2019

Music so pretty you'll have your guests crying tears of joy : )
I am so lucky to have had Candlelight Strings be a part of my wedding ceremony. I knew from the moment I began communicating with Monika that they were going to be a professional team and they did not dissapoint. The music was SO beautiful. I got so many compliments from guests about how they added such a sweet element to the ceremony. Even listening to them practice I got the chills. As a former musician I have such an appreciation for what they do and trust me when I say that when it comes to giving that extra oomph to your event that they will deliver :)Sent on 02/10/2019
Candlelight Strings's reply:Jasmyn, thank you so much for your kind review. It was an honor and pleasure to be included in such a beautiful celebration. Best wishes from all of us at CSQ!

We hired Candlelight Strings to play at our daughter’s wedding and I highly recommend them! I communicated with Monika several times both by phone and email in the weeks leading up to the wedding to make sure we had the music selections we wanted, in the order we wanted them, etc. She was always very available and easy to work with. The quartet performed so beautifully and added such a lovely nuance to the ceremony, playing a combination of contemporary and classical selections. Many guests commented on how unexpected and fun it was to hear the contemporary songs played by stringed instruments! We would hire Candlelight Strings again with no hesitation!Sent on 04/06/2018
Candlelight Strings's reply:Thank you so much, Sharon. I'm thrilled everything worked out beautifully even in the midst of all the behind the scene adventures. It was a pleasure to be a part of your celebration. Best wishes to the bride and groom from all of us at CSQ!

Candlelight Strings provided stunningly beautiful music for our wedding. They have an enormous repertoire that includes lots of modern/popular songs! I coordinated everything through Monika Griffith, and she was very responsive and helpful. If you are considering a string quartet, Candlelight Strings is absolutely the one you should choose! :)Sent on 02/21/2018

Tammy · Married on 10/06/2017
Candlelight Strings played at my daughter's wedding. They were amazing! My daughter had wanted strings played during the ceremony, originally I told her I wasn't sure if we could do that. I'm so thankful that I was told about Candlelight Strings. They are so professional, responsive and talented! The music was beyond perfect! They totally made the ceremony elegant and set the tone for a beautiful event! I would highly recommend Candlelight Strings!Sent on 10/10/2017
Candlelight Strings's reply:Tammy, thank you for your kind review and for inviting us to be a part of your daughter's wedding day. I'm glad we were able to provide that extra touch to make the day even more special! Best wishes to the bride and groom!

Candlelight Strings did a wonderful job at our wedding at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. The music was wonderful during the ceremony and right on time and it was also wonderful and the perfect choice for our cocktail hour before dinner. Monilka was very professional and prompt, which made working with this group so easy! They are the perfect compliment to any wedding!Sent on 08/14/2017
Candlelight Strings's reply:Lisa, thank you for allowing us the privilege of being included in your beautiful celebration. It was truly our pleasure. Warmest regards from all of us at CSQ!

Monika and the entire Candlelight Strings crew were extremely professional and were the perfect addition to my wedding day. I knew I wanted the live accompaniment during my ceremony and after seeing the wide variety of music this group can play (It's on their website), decided to have them stay for my cocktail hour as well! Anything from Bach to Taylor Swift, this group preforms with ease. Pricing is very reasonable. Monika planned when every song was to be played based off of our wedding words during the ceremony and had great recommendations. She was very careful and knew what music was appropriate to play at certain times! She made the process enjoyable. If you are thinking of having live entertainment, I would suggest it. It adds that wow factor for guests and sounds much better than the cheesy radio playing from the corner. :)Sent on 06/07/2017
Candlelight Strings's reply:Lauren, thanks for taking the time to review us! It was a pleasure working with you. All our best to you and Charles!
Brittney · Married on 04/28/2017
Monika and her team were amazing. They were helpful in getting the pieces of music that I wanted even though one was not in their library, we got it ordered. Monika followed up with me throughout the planning process and was very professional.Sent on 05/26/2017
Candlelight Strings's reply:Thank you for taking the time to review our services, Brittney. This was our first time performing at Rocky's Lake Estate. What a gorgeous venue! It was an honor to work with you and be a part of your special celebration. Best wishes to you and Derek!
Lauren · Married on 04/15/2017
Candlelight Strings was amazing at our wedding. We had an outdoor wedding at the Atlanta Botanical Garden with the string quartet playing at our ceremony and cocktail hour. This group offers every variation of music possible and sounds absolutely beautiful. Monika is so easy to work with, offers suggestions and is extremely flexible. Monika and the rest of the musicians are true professionals. I will definitely be recommending this group to all friends and family in the future! Thank you all again for making our day so special and seamless.Sent on 05/30/2017
Candlelight Strings's reply:Lauren, thank you so much for your kind review. You picked the perfect day and venue for an outdoor wedding! It was a pleasure to work with you and your excellent team of vendors. Thanks also for sharing your stunning photographs with us. All our best to you and Brandon!
William · Married on 03/25/2017
Working with The Candlelight Strings was so great! They were very responsive to our emails and were happy to help with anything we needed. They offer an extensive music selection and are willing to look into music that isn't already in their repertoire.Sent on 04/11/2017
Once the wedding came around, the music was beautiful and everything went smoothly! I would highly recommend The Candlelight Strings to anyone looking for great, live music for their ceremony and cocktail hour!
Candlelight Strings's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to review our services, William. We're thankful for the opportunity to work with you and play a part in such a memorable celebration. Best regards to you and your beautiful bride!
Ansley · Married on 03/04/2017
Candlelight Strings was incredible, both in the planning process and on the day of our wedding. Monika was so responsive, so helpful, and so dedicated to listening to what our hopes and desires were for the songs we selected for our wedding ceremony (and cocktail hour afterward). I had selected some unique arrangements of several songs, and she and her team worked so hard to get it exactly right...way more than I expected. Every single arrangement of every song they played was perfect and beautiful - they really nailed it. To say they exceeded expectations doesn’t do it justice. They were exceptional, and I felt their dedication to making the music for our wedding very personal, meaningful and beautiful. I couldn't recommend Candlelight Strings more!Sent on 03/15/2017
Candlelight Strings's reply:Ansley, thank you so much for your gracious review! Planning your ceremony music quickly revealed our mutual love of attending to even the smallest details. I was so thankful for the opportunity to utilize this skill set because the difference between good and exceptional is often in those small yet meaningful details! All our best to you and Nate!
Louis · Married on 01/14/2017
Our wedding planner, Courtney Drake, recommended this string quartet and I knew from our first phone conversation with Monika that this was the right group for our wedding. She confirmed our music selection, recommended selections, learned a new selection for our wedding. The music for the children's welcome of my new wife was perfect. This string quartet added that special touch to our wonderful wedding. Their music was so beautiful and fitting for our very special wedding.Sent on 03/14/2017
Candlelight Strings's reply:Louis, we are so thankful for Courtney's recommendation and for your trust. Thank you for taking the time to review our services. It was truly a pleasure working with you. Warmest regards to you and your lovely bride!
Ansleigh · Married on 10/22/2016
Working with Monika and Candlelight Strings was one of the best parts of my wedding! Monika was amazing to work with and she was so responsive to all my (many) questions. They were also able to transcribe a song from one of our favorite TV shows for my processional for a small fee. It turned out even better than I imagined. I have received so many compliments from my wedding guests on how beautiful the music was and how it made everything feel so elegant. I highly recommend using Candlelight Strings for your big day!!!Sent on 11/02/2016
Candlelight Strings's reply:Thank you for your kind words, Ansleigh. It was a pleasure working with you. We're happy you were pleased with the custom processional arrangement and thankful for the opportunity to be a part of a beautiful and lasting memory.

Candlelight Strings came to us highly recommended by our wedding coordinator. They were wonderful. Monika had a phone consultation with me and took time to discuss the venue and ambiance of the ceremony that my fiance and I were planning. She was able to guide music selections accordingly and offer input regarding how the music might best suit our ceremony timeline.Sent on 10/22/2016
On the day of the wedding, the group was profession and courteous. Their music was beautifully performed, and gracefully highlighted our ceremony. The prelude and afterlude they provided also made for a lovely backdrop when guests were arriving prior to the ceremony and later departing to the reception.
We enjoyed the experience and would love to work with them again!
Candlelight Strings's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to review our services. It was a privilege be included in your special day and a pleasure to work with you in creating the perfect musical backdrop. We are thrilled that you were pleased with the results. Best Wishes!
Mark · Married on 09/23/2016
Candlelight Strings made our wedding in September, 2016, so much more special. The music they provided was an outstanding and very classy addition to our ceremony and it received numerous compliments from the people who attended. Monika was great to work with. She provided gentle guidance in helping us select our music, but allowed us to make the decisions. She even agreed to change the tempo of one of the pieces to fit our needs. The group has a long play list of both classical and contemporary music. Their web site is great because it allows you to listen to some of your music options to evaluate how they might fit in the ceremony. All the musicians were very professional and they added so much to our ceremony. We highly recommend Candlelight Strings!Sent on 10/16/2016
Candlelight Strings's reply:Mark, thank you so much for taking the time to review our services. It was a pleasure working with you. Best wishes to you and your lovely bride!

Candlelight Strings was an amazing vendor to work with for our wedding. Monika was super easy to talk to and get in touch with. She answered all my questions and emails so quickly, and was so helpful. I asked them to learn a couple of Persian songs for our wedding, and it was such an easy experience. She was constantly in contact with me to make sure that I was happy with how they were arranging the music, how I wanted the flow of everything to go, what kind of other songs I wanted played, etc. She left no room for doubt in my mind, and she made sure that I was getting exactly what I wanted. They are very professional, helpful, and they honestly made working with them such a pleasure, that I can't imagine a better experience. They had such a great repertoire of music to choose from, and they played exactly the type of music I wanted on my wedding day. The quartet sound gave such a romantic ambiance to our ceremony and cocktail hour, and all of our guests were so pleased with the music. Their pricing was also very reasonable as well. I will be recommending them to all my friends and family, and hiring them again should I have another event that would require a string quartet. I am beyond happy with my choice to use them for our wedding. Thanks guys!!!!Sent on 10/04/2016
Candlelight Strings's reply:Kimi, thank you so much for your kind and generous review! We were entering unfamiliar territory with the Persian music, but it was an extraordinary experience and we are so glad you were pleased with the outcome. It was truly our pleasure. Best wishes!
Jean · Married on 09/10/2016
I was completely blown away when I heard Candlelight Strings play my wedding march "A Thousand Years". I tried so hard not to cry, it was beautiful! Their music is unbelievable and I was very impressed that they could play a lot of the current songs!! Monika, the manager, was easy to work with. She always replied when I sent an email. My guests were truly entertained before the wedding and during cocktail hour. Wish I could have sat in the audience to listen to all their songs that I requested! Thank you so much for making my day so special!! You guys are AMAZING!!!!Sent on 10/11/2016
Candlelight Strings's reply:Jean, thank you so much for your kind review. It was truly a pleasure to work with you and we are thrilled that our part was what you envisioned it to be. Best Wishes!

Candlelight Strings performed all of the ceremony and cocktail hour music for my daughter's wedding and did a fantastic job! We have received many compliments on the music from our guests. They were very professional and great to work and exceeded all of our expectations. We are so glad that we were able to have Candlelight Strings provide the music that they did and would recommend them to anyone wishing to have a fabulous string quartet play at their function. They also arranged for a vocalist and together they did the most amazing rendition of "Grow Old With Me." Bravo for a job well done!Sent on 07/05/2016

We had the quartet play for our ceremony and we received so many compliments on our music. We chose mostly contemporary music for the prelude and ceremony and while I didn't get to hear the music for the prelude, the ceremony music was absolutely fabulous! The transitions were perfect as we had a separate song for the mothers, bridal party, flower girl and ring bearer, and the bridal procession. Monica was really great to work with and she was very responsive to all my questions. Thank you so much Candlelight Strings!! You helped make out ceremony so perfect! I could not have asked for anything more.Sent on 07/17/2016
