In planning for my niece's Wisconsin wedding, I thought a live classical performance would add a lot for the outdoor ceremony, so I began researching online and found Karen at celebratorystrings.com. I emailed them an overview of the event and the date and crossed my fingers. I had a response quickly. From the outset, communication was extremely clear and quick. Great for me as I am an "email person". Once the date was secure and I connected Karen and the bride, they took the ball and ran. They worked on custom music selections and even learned a new piece for us, sending us sample recordings as well via email, offering suggestions for various parts of the ceremony... I was very impressed. They showed up early to the rehearsal and endured heat and bees. Most importantly, they play beautifully. On the day of the ceremony, they were early and prepared and helpful throughout. They started playing well before people began to get seated, nailed all their cues during the ceremony and played through the entire receiving line. I couldn't have been more impressed. They were exactly what I wanted and did not disappoint in any way. Highly recommended!
