What to Expect
The Wolfgang String Quartet would provide a half hour of Prelude music before your wedding, then switch to the pieces that you choose for the processionals, play anything you wish during the ceremony and then a recessional tune of your choosing. That's the typical format of our string quartet at a wedding ceremony. At receptions, we would play a nice mix of classical music according to your wishes.
