Ocean Strings hit all the right notes for our wedding ceremony !
I cannot speak highly enough about our experience with Ocean Strings ! From our first moment of contact we knew we were in good hands. Nicole was so helpful, and could not have been more professional and accommodating. The music selection and performance play a main role in the wedding ceremony, and Ocean Strings totally exceeded our expectations. We are truly grateful they were a part of our ceremony.Sent on 10/16/2019

Wonderful string quartet for our wedding!
We loved having Ocean Strings as part of our wedding Ceremony. They performed fun, current music as well as a special request that is not a typical bridal entrance song, and we kept hearing from our guests how great it was to non-traditional string music with a quartet!Sent on 01/08/2020
Ocean Strings / Ocean String Quartet's reply:Thank you Rachel for your lovely review! We really enjoyed performing unique music for your special day! Wishing you many beautiful memories.

Ocean Strings were fantastic!
The Ocean Strings duo played for my daughter’s wedding and their music was wonderful. They played during the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They were very responsive to my inquiries and were willing and able to play every selection that we wanted. They also suggested additional music that was appropriate and beautiful. Me and Mrs Ballinger were very professional and were very flexible, moving inside from the patio in the rain, and playing songs upon the bride and groom’s request. The Ocean Strings Duo was an excellent value and they will not disappoint.Sent on 07/07/2019
Ocean Strings / Ocean String Quartet's reply:Thank you so much Elizabeth! We really enjoyed performing for your family and friends! And so happy the Bride wanted to hear an encore of "Married Life" from UP! That's one of our favorite arrangements! Thank you again for including us and wishing you all many wonderful memories of your daughter's wedding day!

Couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate our marriage than with the added bonus of string music during our ceremony.
Ocean Strings did a phenomenal job. The string music was a perfect backdrop to our beach ceremony! Nicole was very responsive and extremely helpful with music suggestions for our ceremony. Our guests loved the strings duo as opposed to a dj playing songs. I would highly recommend Ocean Strings for your next wedding or event!Sent on 05/23/2019
Ocean Strings / Ocean String Quartet's reply:Thank you for the great honor to perform for your spectacular wedding day! We really enjoyed getting to know your Uncle Sakki! What an amazing and touching ceremony for you both! Congratulations!

The Ocean Strings Quartet are such talented musicians, they brought such elegance to our wedding and cocktail hour. They are very professional and maintained excellent communication throughout the entire wedding planning process, which really eased my stress when planning from out of town. I loved working with them and received tons of praise from guests. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for live music at their wedding or other event!Sent on 11/17/2017
Ocean Strings / Ocean String Quartet's reply:Thank you Molly & Michael! We enjoyed performing for your special wedding day by the ocean! We appreciate you taking the time to post your lovely review and sharing your photographs as well. We wish you both a lifetime of warm memories together- and we were honored to be among the first ones.
Ann · Married on 03/12/2017
I didnt want to walk to boring traditional music. Oceans strings were able to give a classical elegance to modern pop songs. I was able to walk down the isle to Coldplay then celebrate with my new hubby to Bruno Mars.Sent on 12/22/2017
Ocean Strings / Ocean String Quartet's reply:Thank you Ann! We enjoyed playing all the unique selections for your destination wedding and it was very meaningful to perform for a bride who is also a string player! Congratulations to you both!

One of the most exciting and anticipated part of our destination wedding was to have Ocean String Quartet play at our ceremony/cocktail/part of the reception. And they did not disappoint! It was enchanting to the ears! They have an extensive playlist to choose from and it was easy to deal with them via email/phone. We wish we could have been able to listen to them like a guest during the prelude of the ceremony as well!Sent on 08/24/2015

Bethanie · Married on 07/04/2011
Nicole and Richard Ballinger were the fabulous violinists that we booked for both our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They were both extremely professional and dedicated to their craft which was reflected in their musical talents. My husband and I would recommend this group to anyone who is looking for a skilled and helpful musical group.Sent on 11/25/2011
