Hire for your Wedding!
I cannot fully express how happy I am that Wilmington String Ensemble (string quartet) played at my wedding. One of my #1 desires was to have strings during our ceremony. The ceremony was a catholic mass and Kathleen was wonderful to work with. She provided a song list for different parts of the mass, gave me plenty of options, and provided recommendations when asked. She was very responsive by email. On the day of the wedding, I was blown away. The string quartet was beautiful. Walking down the aisle was even more memorable because of the beautiful sounds of the strings. I received so many compliments on the music. I cannot write enough good things! They have a wonderful and extensive repertoire. You could also have some of their players present for cocktail hour (if you so choose). Thank you to Wilmington String Ensemble for contributing to my wedding! Everyone (especially me) LOVED the music! Beautiful!Sent on 01/11/2019
Wilmington String Ensemble's reply:Wow! Thank you so much for all your kind words. I really appreciate it. Reviews help so much. Kathleen

Working with the Wilmington Strings was tremendous. From finding the Stars Wars Throne procession for the violinist to play. To the guitarist writing his one version of "At Last" for our wedding dance. We would definitely recommend them for your wedding or event.Sent on 05/30/2019

Wonderful musicians, great experience
Wilmington Strings was amazing to work with from start to finish. They provided the most beautiful music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and throughout dinner. We opted for a trio, but I am confident any configuration would be great. We handpicked our songs, and they played beautiful arrangements of everything from Bach, to Beauty and the Beast, to the Beach Boys. I can't recommend them more! Totally professional, accommodating, and talented.Sent on 06/04/2019

Best Quartet Around
Kathleen is wonderful to work with. My daughter, a violinist, looked at a few quartets; watched or listened to their music. Wilmington String Ensemble was the only quartet that met her expectations. They are the best!Sent on 06/04/2019

Their music was perfect for our wedding
Wilmington Strings played at our 9/22/18 wedding on lake Nockamixon in Perkasie, PA. The music they played couldn’t have been more perfect. One of the women playing used to be mine and my sisters violin teacher - which made it extra special. It was smooth interactions most via email and their site is super accessible and easy to navigate. They added an air of excellence to our cocktail our as they contnuted to serenade our guests. They were a huge part of our wedding and we were so thrilled the could be a part of it 💕Sent on 01/11/2019

Wilmington strings played at our Hotel du Pont wedding this past July, and they were an INCREDIBLE addition to our ceremony. Kathleen was friendly, responsive, and accommodating when we were choosing our ceremony music from the extensive selection list. The string trio that performed at our wedding was professional and talented, and they really added the perfect romantic and fun ambiance to our ceremony. Thank you, Wilmington Strings!!!Sent on 09/05/2018

Elizabeth · Married on 06/30/2018
We hired a string quartet from the Wilmington String Ensemble to play at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and we were blown away. The quartet sounded amazing and really added a touch of class, uniqueness, and intimacy to our wedding for what I considered to be an excellent value. We loved getting to pick the different pieces the musicians would play at our ceremony, and they were gracious and accommodating at working with us on the special timing for the bride's entrance down the aisle. We highly recommend Wilmington Strings.Sent on 09/02/2018
Wilmington String Ensemble's reply:Thank you so much for such a beautiful review Elizabeth. It is so helpful.

Wilmington Strings was a complete pleasure to work with. I booked them in 2013 for my sons wedding and when it came time for the next wedding Wilmington Strings was my only call. Kathleen was amazing to work with. Their professionalism is second to none. The quartet sounded amazing outdoors and in the church. If you’re looking to add that something extra special to your event, Wilmington Strings should be your first call. You won’t be disappointed.Sent on 07/08/2018

Krystina · Married on 11/05/2016
I had dreamed of having Kathleen play at my wedding for YEARS, and felt so incredibly honored to be able to have her there on my special day!! She is so elegant and when she plays the violin, the music almost swirls around you, as it has a very majestic feel. She is so accommodating, professional, caring, and skillful, she can flow seamlessly through any transition. I would highly recommend Kathleen for your wedding or event; I promise, you will not be disappointed!Sent on 09/04/2017

We had a trio from Wilmington String Ensemble perform our wedding ceremony music. It really helped make our ceremony magical.

I hired the Wilmington String Ensemble for my ceremony music. I requested a string trio and got a vocalist from my Church. Katie is amazing! She responds to your questions promptly and even provides feedback on anything you will play during that time. She is a sweetheart! I got a lot of compliments from the music selection and about how well they played!! One of my guests told me that she had them played during her ceremony many years ago and always recommends them to people. I couldn't agree more! They'll play amazingly! They are professional! and will make that day be perfect!Sent on 09/01/2014

I was beyond happy, I was THRILLED with the duo of harp and violin!!! It was beautiful, tranquil and magical to have them playing on our wedding day. Our guests told us it had transformed them to a whole new place to walk in hearing the beautiful music. I could not have asked for a better day, and walking in to Clair de Lune was my dream, which was made come true with these talented musicians. I even made sure to include them on our wedding program, so all our guests knew who Wilmington String Ensemble was!!! Can't help having high praise for such great performances!Sent on 06/28/2014

The WSE were wonderful to work with! I was in contact with Karen up until the day of. She helped make suggestions and took my own personal requests of music selections and timing of music into consideration. I would highly recommend them for an outdoor wedding...they helped add that extra piece of 'class' we were looking for! They sounded wonderful (I've definitely been to weddings where live music didn't) and I can't say enough about them!Sent on 08/25/2013
