Seaside Strings was the perfect piece to complete our intimate beach ceremony. Vivian played a great role in guiding us in song selections and suggesting new contemporary songs. Our friends and family were very complimentary on the music. The string duo helped up create an amazing photograph with a breath taking sunset, it's a memory that we will always cherish. Thank you Seaside Strings!Sent on 08/09/2014

I hired the Sea Side Strings to preform at my ceremony. I wanted a beach wedding with beautiful live music and that is exactly what I received. I picked all the songs that I wanted them to preform and it was just perfect. They dressed professionally, were very easy to coordinate with my preist of when they should play and when they shouldn't. I believe they were very afordable and an absolute delight to work with. I would highly recommend them to any function, we received many, many compliments on our choice of music for our beach ceremony.Sent on 02/17/2014

I'm a local wedding planner and I trusted Seaside Strings with ceremony music for my big day. Vivian worked with me ahead of time to make suggestions and go over every part of the music, from the time the guests begin being seated to the ceremony and postlude. They offer from classical to contemporary pop songs. The music was perfect and I highly recommend them!Sent on 03/12/2014

We had the best experience with Seaside Strings. We had a string quartet play our ceremony and cocktail hour. They are such a talented group. I worked primarily with Vivian in the planning process. She was so helpful and responsive. She had great suggestions on songs to play and was very helpful with navigating the unique setting at the Marriott Resort in Marco Island. We selected mostly contemporary music for our ceremony and it was BEAUTIFUL. It really helped set the mood for the whole ceremony. For the cocktail hour, Seaside Strings wowed all of our guests by playing Katy Perry, Chicago, and other top-40 hits. Everyone really enjoyed watching the sunset with such a beautiful soundtrack.Sent on 01/22/2014
The whole group was extremely easy to work with. We had rain on our wedding day which put a big damper on our plans, but Seaside Strings was up for anything and ready to set up where needed. Their prices were very reasonable. I would strongly recommend them. Such an incredible job.
Seaside Strings's reply:We are so grateful to the couple for this wonderful review! We are so glad the venue had a gazebo which provided protection for us. And, happy that the sun came out so we could have the cocktail hour on the beach as planned! We loved the music they chose for us, especially the special request of Seasons of Love, a great new addition to our repertoire.

we had the pleasure of having these wonderful ladies play for our ceremony. All I can say is WOW! we didn't get to hear them play much until the actual ceremony but our guests raved constantly on how fantastic they where. our ceremony was running late, but they were so flexible and still worked with us. I would highly recommend them because they are so professional and have great arrangements...even pop songs you'd never thought would work, they played. LOVE THEM!!Sent on 11/08/2013
Seaside Strings's reply:What a fun wedding this was for us! I really enjoyed meeting and working with this terrific couple! We loved the music that they chose for us and because of their requests we added great new songs to our repertoire list.

Vivian was simply amazing! Very helpful with making music selections and prompt to return emails and/or phone calls. She was so accommodating with our 2 vocalists and even offered to come to our rehearsal to practice timing for one of the pieces. I wish I would have had more time to listen to the beautiful violin and cello duet at our cocktail hour. Highly recommended!!!Sent on 11/02/2013
Seaside Strings's reply:Emily planned such a beautiful ceremony. It was a pleasure to work with her and the vocalists! You can read about this wedding at my blog http://seasidestrings.wordpress.com

We had a great experience with Seaside Strings for our wedding ceremony! We chose to have a very simplistic violin ensemble, and Vivian and Susan did such a great job fulfilling that vision! They were extremely talented, professional, caring, and detail-oriented.Sent on 07/27/2013
Seaside Strings allowed us to design our playlist then ordered it in a fashion suitable for our guests and interlaced songs that worked beautifully between our choices and those precessing down the aisle. Having the subtle, beautiful violin played during our ceremony was absolutely remarkable.
We highly recommend Seaside Strings. They went above and beyond to ensure our expectations met, happiness was achieved, and made every second count! Thank you very much!

Seaside Strings were just great! Vivian was a pleasure to work with prior to the wedding, and being from out of town, we were able to do everything via email and select the perfect songs for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The music they provide is such a perfect touch to a beachside wedding. I would definitely recommend them for your wedding! :)Sent on 06/10/2013

Seaside Strings did an excellent job at my wedding ceremony. I had an outdoor ceremony and I really loved the classical touch they added. Vivian was very very sweet and I enjoyed talking to her a few weeks before the wedding to go over the playlist and any other questions we had. She was able to suggest a few things and I simply loved having them there!Sent on 06/11/2013

Debbie · Married on 02/23/2013
Vivian and her Seaside Strings could not have been a better choice. She was lovely to work with and quite helpful with the music selections. We had classical traditional music before and during the ceremony, with pops melodies at the cocktail reception immediately following. The group was professional, and I was totally pleased.Sent on 03/01/2013
Seaside Strings's reply:We are thrilled that Debbie was so pleased with our music and we were so honored to be a part of her event. Her vision worked so nicely to have classical for the ceremony and pops music for the reception and really suited the venue. She made it fun for us as she chose a lot of our favorites as well as songs her guests enjoyed. It was a pleasure to work with her!
Tracey · Married on 12/31/2012
We had the cello and violin from Seaside Strings playing at our ceremony and through to the end of our cocktail hour and they were just wonderful! They provided such a romantic and elegant atmosphere and I can't say enough about the experience!Sent on 01/11/2013
I had several "out of the box" songs I wanted played at our ceremony and Vivian didn't bat an eye. Even though for one, she had to find and learn the sheet music! Had I not known it ahead of time, I could have sworn they were all songs that they've played a million times, because on the day of the wedding I was blown away!
They played "I won't give up" by Jason Mraz for the processional and it was positively enchanting. For my walk down the aisle it was "Marry Me" by Train and the minute I heard it I burst into tears. It was perfect. And then, for the recessional it was "You are the Best Thing" by Ray Lamontagne (this was the toughie)...and it was so fun! So upbeat! So beautiful!
Seaside Strings's reply:Thank you Tracey! We are thrilled that you were so pleased and we really enjoyed performing the music you chose! It was fun for us too!

They did a great job and were wonderful in accompanying my sister in a song that she sang during our ceremony!Sent on 01/03/2013
Seaside Strings's reply:It was a pleasure to work with you and your sister! I really enjoyed working on the song (grew to love it too!) and felt so glad to perform it for you since it meant a lot to you. We appreciate that your sister provided the sheet music in the key she needed. She was a very accomplished singer ( with a lovely voice) so we were able to put it together with just a short rehearsal prior to the ceremony. I hope to rearrange the score so we can perform it with out a vocalist.
