We had Sweetwater Strings play violin and cello at our wedding and they were amazing!! Eily was so easy to work with, very professional, and I just cannot rave about them enough. Their prices were reasonable, they helped us to come up with music/an ambiance for our ceremony and really took all the stress out of this portion of our wedding planning. I felt like I was able to put things in their competent hands and they just delivered an amazing experience. Please hire them, you will NOT be disappointed!

I highly recommend Sweet Water Strings! We hired their string quartet for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and Im so happy we did! They completely elevated our wedding and it felt so elegant. When we were first talking with them about hiring them, I wasnt sure if I needed the quartet or the trio so I went to meet them early before an event and listened to them play. They played a few wedding songs for me and I cried they were so good! They were all so nice too and hearing them live helped me make up my mind that I wanted the quartet. I emailed directly with Eily throughout the process and she was a pleasure to work with.They had me fill out a questionnaire on the songs I wanted to be played or you can trust them to choose. I requested vintage, classy vibe songs such as It Had to Be You and The Way You Look Tonight and asked they stay away from any rock covers or fast pop. They did just that and did such an amazing job. The night felt so beautiful because of their music and everyone loved them and posted about them on social media. I personally remember walking down the aisle and hearing the music and seeing my groom and holding my dads arm, it was all so beautiful just like Id imagined. Please hire them if you are looking. I trust them completely! Five stars and thank you Sweetwater strings for making my wedding day extra special!

Great Performers! Eily and two others performed the music for our ceremony and reception in May and they did a wonderful job! We chose the Celtic Trio and they did a mix of Celtic and modern music. It was perfect!

Our Celtic group "Kilted Spirit" had such fun playing for you all! It was great to see the family out on the dance floor having a good time- congrats to you both!

Eily was wonderful! Responsive, skilled, pleasant, and reasonably priced. Sweetwater Strings has an extensive list of classical and current music pieces to choose from or they are happy to accommodate by adding your choices to their repertoire (and did so for us for a couple of specific pieces we wanted for our wedding at Hermosa Inn). I'm happy to recommend Sweetwater Strings!
