Kate and the O’Brien Strings Trio were amazing during my wedding ceremony. As soon as I listened to the music samples on their website I knew they were perfect! They played a mix of classical and popular music while guests were waiting and were spot-on with their timing when it came to the procession. I was really blown away by how amazing they sounded. They allowed me to customize the music and create the ideal atmosphere for my big moment and it truly felt like a fairytale because of their beautiful music. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a string group for their wedding.

We booked the guitar and violin duo for our wedding ceremony. They were incredibly accommodating - my husband is a huge car nut and for our wedding recessional, they came up with an arrangement to Chuck Berry's "Riding Along In My Automobile" for us which was amazing. One of my bridesmaids also sang at our ceremony and Kate was nice enough to meet with her prior to the ceremony to go over the song so they could accompany her. The duo was professional, punctual, and very low maintenance. They helped make our ceremony personal and memorable - I would highly recommend them!!!

So easy to work with, and sounded gorgeous from beginning to end! Thank you for accommodating all my song requests and pulling everything together so nicely. Many people raved about your renditions of Con te Partiro and Yellow. We particularly liked Pachebel and Once Upon a Dream. Despite the wind, their sound was clear and loud and they never missed a beat. Wow, they made for an absolutely beautiful wedding ceremony! So appreciative of all your work to make our day so memorable. Thank you! Jon and Rebecca Stewart
