This musical string quartet is absolutely the best! The quality of their musicianship is outstanding! Their repertoire is extensive and they are extremely professional and accommodating. They played all of the pieces we requested and in an order that flowed beautifully. We asked them to not only play during the ceremony but also during cocktails and throughout the dinner and I’m so glad that we did. It added so much to the entire experience and created the perfect atmosphere We could have listened to them all night. I’d love to be able to listen to them in concert some day! We feel so blessed to have had them play for us. I cannot recommend them highly enough!Sent on 10/27/2020

We knew we wanted the elegance of a string quartet at our wedding, but knew little beyond that about classical music. Diana helped us along the way with suggestions and samples and ideas for processional and recessional. The ceremony music was perfect and we couldn't be more in love with how everything worked out! The Quartet continued to play through cocktail hour, where they switched to more upbeat songs our guests recognized and loved! We received so many compliments and would highly recommend working with the Northern Virginia String Quartet!Sent on 09/19/2020

I originally reached out to the Quartet and then with their help they worked directly with the bride and groom. They provided wonderful pre wedding music and then they did a beautiful performance at the wedding. We also had them entertain during the cocktail hour. They are very flexible with their music and our guest really enjoyed them.Sent on 01/09/2020
We would definitely recommend the NOVA String Quartet.

Incredible Amazing Experience
We had a song we wanted to have played at our wedding. The String Quartet of Northern Virginia obtained the music in an arrangement for a string quartet, learned the music and played it at our wedding. They did a fantastic job! We highly recommend The String Quartet of Northern Virginia.Sent on 10/28/2019

Outstanding! Highly recommend !!
Wow,! Such an amazing quartet! They added so much to my daughter’s wedding day with their beautiful music. What a great decision to hire them for the ceremony and cocktail hour, as I could not have asked for a more outstanding, professional group of musicians to work with from a musical as well as business standpoint. Best of the best! I wish I could give them more than 5 stars in this review because they deserve it ! Highly recommend!Sent on 07/03/2019

I cannot praise the String Quartet of Northern Virginia enough. They were very professional and great to work with. We used the quartet for my daughter’s cocktail hour at her wedding. The quality of their music was of the highest standard and we had quite a few compliments from guests about how wonderful the music and the group were. They certainly added a touch of class to the wedding and I would certainly recommend this group to anyone.Sent on 06/08/2019

Beautiful music to make for a perfect ceremony!
The String Quartet of Northern Virginia provided beautiful music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Comprised of the finest musicians in the DMV area, the string quartet played classical music for the ceremony and pop/dance music for the cocktail hour. Before the event, Stephanie (Artistic Director and violinist), met with us to get our musical preferences for the event. She was so easy and fun to talk to and quickly understood our vision. She has a vast collection of music covering all genres. If you request a song that is not yet in their collection, Stephanie will find an arrangement. We loved hearing pop music by artists like Sinatra, Sting, Beyonce, Coldplay, and Daft Punk. Our guests LOVED the quartet and we received so many compliments on how beautifully they played. The music made our special day perfect!Sent on 01/24/2019

The String Quartet of Northern Virginia was wonderful for our wedding! They played beautifully and were great to work with around our special requests.

I had an amazing experience with the String Quartet of Northern VA! They were prompt, very professional, and really made my vision of the day come to life. They were able to learn a song to play specifically for my ceremony which I greatly appreciated! You can't go wrong with them!Sent on 09/11/2018

Northern VA String Quartet was AMAZING! They played so beautifully and I received many compliments. They played for the prelude, the ceremony processional and recessional, and the cocktail hour. They were phenomenal! I HIGHLY recommend them!Sent on 06/25/2018
Thank you so much!!!!
Ashley · Married on 06/22/2018
They were very easy to work with and have a large repertoire of music. The worksheet they gave me made it very easy to plan the music selection, and I was able to work with them to customize it exactly how we wanted it. Overall very happy with the music, many of the guests loved some of the popculture songs they played as well (such as Game of Thrones and other). They are also willing to learn any additional music for a fee, but since they have such a large selection already, we didn't find that necessary. The string quartet added just the right amount of elegance to our ceremony.Sent on 11/03/2018

The String Quartet of Northern VA did a fantastic job of playing at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They played a wide variety of music (classical, ragtime and pop) and were extremely professional and responsive. They asked detailed questions about the ceremony to get everything just right (some of these questions we had not even thought of) and helped make it so special. We had many compliments from our guests about how much they enjoyed the music. We would highly recommend them and are so glad they were able to perform at our wedding!Sent on 09/25/2017

Having the String Quartet made the ceremony!!! They played exactly what we requested and the sound was perfect. They were professional, courteous, and wonderful. The string quartet was the only request I made to my daughter to have at the wedding and it could not have been more perfect. I am so glad I found them and booked them for my daughters wedding. Thank you so much for making the ceremony that much more special.Sent on 11/10/2016

Don't give it a second thought, hire the Northern Virginia String Quartet for your event. Every member was professional, communication prior to the event was easy and the music was beautiful. So glad that we hired them for our wedding. Absolutely everything was perfect.Sent on 10/31/2016

The String Quartet of Northern Virginia was a wonderful choice for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. They were very professional and sounded better than we could've imagined. We received a thoughtful handwritten note from them in the mail following our wedding, which added a personal touch that we greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend them !Sent on 12/05/2016

If you would like a professional live string quartet for your ceremony, you can't do better than the String Quartet of Northern Virginia. My daughter and her fiance' fell in love with them at a bridal fair in DC. Stephanie was a dream to communicate with and so patient and responsive during the whole process of music selection, timing questions, etc. When we decided to use a tenor soloist, she found the perfect one. While I was a bit nervous that they do not come to the rehearsal, we managed by having our wedding consultant make a CD to use at the rehearsal. That worked fine, and the ceremony went off without a hitch. Because their package is 90 minutes, we were able to select several more songs for the 30 minute prelude and have a few in a postlude as well. Their repertoire is extensive, and they are also willing to obtain additional music if your daughter has her heart set on a particular song. If you cry at beautiful music, bring the tissues! We had a blend of popular and classical music, and each selection was exquisite. It's not inexpensive, but if music is important to you, it's well worth the cost to help create an unforgettable ceremony!Sent on 08/21/2016

Had va string quartet play at our outdoor ceremony and part of cocktail hour - very professional, sounded great (exactly like how I imagine it). And preparing up to the wedding with emails - the quartet was quick to respond and helpful. I would highly recommend the quartet for any special occasion!Sent on 07/27/2016

I can't express enough how beautiful and moving the String Quartet of Northern Virginia was during my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. If you are looking for a true experience for your ceremony and your guests, book the String Quartet of Northing Virginia. Worth every moment and I can still remember the music! They are professionals and so talented. Through the planning period, Stephanie sent me music selections and we shared ideas and options for music during our wedding Mass. Stephanie is wonderful to work with and she shared her expertise on what classical pieces would sound great together. The quartet also played an arrangement of Be Thou My Vision during my offering to the Blessed Mother which was so special. To add to it, the Quartet played romantic pop music during my cocktail hour. All my guests were so surprised with the amazing musical selections (and still commenting on it)! I made a special request to have Defying Gravity played on the violins for my husband, and Stephanie was able to quickly accommodate my request. It was stunning!! I would love to have the String Quartet at another event.Sent on 08/02/2016
