I couldn’t be more ecstatic
Vanderbilt Strings were amazing. I can’t say enough. They made the ceremony just that more special. Janie helped me along the way with setting up the whole ceremony. I got a string quartet. It was a beach ceremony on Sanibel island.Sent on 10/29/2018
I bought the sheet music from music notes . Com and sent it to them. They played the songs of my choice and really listened to my desires. I am so so so happy I went with them. Thank you so much.
The Vanderbilt Strings's reply:We had an absolute blast putting your music together, Laura, and I'm thrilled that you liked it as much as we did! The quartet sends their thanks to you and we wish you both the very best!

Beautiful Beach Wedding with a Cello
Janie with Vanderbilt Strings was a joy to work with. We had a solo cellist play for our ceremony on the beach and he did not disappoint. It was absolutely beautiful! A perfect touch to our perfect day.Sent on 05/06/2019
The Vanderbilt Strings's reply:Thanks for sharing your experience, Jennifer! We're so glad you enjoyed having Shea play for you! Best wishes to you!

Janie and her team of musicians are simply the best. Janie will talk with you and find a way to bring the best music to your wedding ceremony. The large playlist was very helpful with both classical and pop music selections. Instrumental music adds a sort of elegance to an outside wedding that can't be beat! Thanks Janie for making our day very special!Sent on 05/06/2019
The Vanderbilt Strings's reply:Thanks, Steve! We had a great time playing for you, and I don't think I've seen a more beautiful day at 8th Ave South. We wish you both the absolute best!

A perfect addition to our day!
The Vanderbilt Strings were a wonderful addition to our wedding! From the beginning, Janie was super helpful and excited to accommodate all of our requests (including playing a special song that was not listed in their music for me to walk down the aisle to)! On our big day the string quartet did a wonderful job mixing classical music with newer pop songs (as per my request) to please all of our guests. I couldn't imagine my big day without them!Sent on 04/13/2019

The violinist was a beautiful addition to our ceremony. I did not want traditional wedding music, and was not disappointed.Sent on 01/13/2019
The Vanderbilt Strings's reply:So glad to hear it, Tara! Your music choices were so fun, with everything from Andrew Lloyd-Webber to Christina Perri and the Beatles. I liked the variety of styles! And I'm so glad you liked the music! Best wishes to you!

Vanderbilt Strings exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend them, they were personable and excellent musicians. We would actually give them a 20 on a scale of 1-10 on all accounts.Sent on 08/12/2018
The Vanderbilt Strings's reply:Cindy, we have thought back so fondly on the afternoon we played for your family. Your idea to give your husband the gift of a house concert on his birthday was so creative, and we had the best time sharing our music with you all. I hope we'll all meet again soon!

Janie was wonderful to work with! Great communication prior to the wedding. I decided on having the whole quartet and I'm so happy with my decision. My guests loved the cocktail hour music and the ceremony went perfectly!Sent on 01/05/2018
The Vanderbilt Strings's reply:Thank you, Holly! The full quartet really does add that 'extra something' and I'm glad you felt it made a difference! We had a great time playing for you and wish you both all the best!

The Vanderbilt Strings were PHENOMENAL and the perfect addition to our ceremony and cocktail hour. If you're in the market for a string quartet, I cannot imagine you would be able to find any greater talent than that of The Vanderbilt Strings.Sent on 04/11/2017
The Vanderbilt Strings's reply:I'm so glad you enjoyed the music! We had a great time and thought your dove release was so romantic! All the best to you and Matt!

We used Vanderbilt Strings for our wedding ceremony beachside in December. Janie was absolutely amazing to work with and so prompt and helpful when helping make music selections. The quartet was beyond talented and the music was breathtaking. I highly recommend them to anyone!Sent on 01/22/2016

Vanderbilt strings recently provided the music for our ceremony and they were outstanding! They had an amazing selection of repertoire to choose from, and they played everything beautifully. The performed our chosen songs so beautifully, and they far surpassed all of our expectations!Sent on 11/13/2015
I could not recommend Vanderbilt Strings enough!
Lara · Married on 10/02/2015
The trio we hired provided beautiful music for our ceremony. I communicated with Janie upon first signing the contract, and she was very helpful and prompt with her emails. Our wedding was on the lawn by the beach, and I could hear the trio playing from my hotel suite room while I was waiting to be called down to walk down the "aisle." It was absolutely beautiful and our guests commented on how much they enjoyed them. My only regret was that I did not get the chance to personally thank them - my coordinator had handled everything when they arrived so I did not even get to meet them. But my husband and I are so happy we chose them - thank you!!!Sent on 10/24/2015

This was a selection from the Resorts preferred vendor list & was recommended by their onsite wedding coordinator. We hired a trio for our wedding and they arrived promptly and the music was perfect. They made the payment & music selection easy & simple. We would definitely hire them for any future need we may have. I highly recommend them.Sent on 10/08/2015
The Vanderbilt Strings's reply:Thanks so much! We are glad to hear you had a great experience with us! Best wishes to you!

We used The Vanderbilt Strings during our destination beach ceremony and outdoor cocktail hour. We also were able to include the stand up bass as part of the quartet. They did such a fabulous job! All of our guests raved about them all evening long and even after the wedding. They have music samples on their website and also cover a wide range of music styles. Janie is courteous, professional and will respond to your emails in a very timely manner. If you want to add some class and style to your ceremony/cocktail hour I highly recommend using The Vanderbilt Strings as you will not be disappointed and neither will your guests.Sent on 05/10/2015

Talk about a group that is able to be extremely flexible and "wing" it - as we never had a rehearsal and there really was no need to have one! They were SPOT ON and did an incredible job!! You're hiring professional musicians and a team that knows what to do with weddings. I provided a script of the ceremony in advance that helped them follow along, which I think makes things easier for cues. We hired a String Trio for our ceremony on the beach and they did an amazing job! Hire with confidence.Sent on 03/17/2015

We worked with them for my November wedding. Janie was extremely responsive and flexible, working with us last minute. Their online selection/event planning service is great and helps you easily plan the music you want during different parts of your ceremony. Jen, the violinist, played beautifully. She was extremely flexible and professional during the crazy/disorganized time leading up to our event. I really could not be more pleased! Wonderful!Sent on 12/15/2014
Danielle · Married on 11/01/2014
I was tremendously pleased with Vanderbilt Strings as our ceremony music, as we had a solo violinist who was great. Janie is super easy and flexible with the music selection and scheduling. She makes it easy for you to select the pieces, and their online selection form is very user friendly and efficient. I would absolutely recommend their services to my closets family and friends!!! Thank you VS! :)Sent on 12/15/2014
