Review by Russell A.

WeddingReviewed on September 28, 2019From Washington, DC

They were easy to communicate with and I absolutely loved how they sounded. So many of my guests commented on how great they were and how it added to our wedding. I highly recommend them.

WeddingReviewed on August 31, 2019From Ridge, MD

We were very impressed with International Strings! They played at our wedding during the ceremony and cocktail hour. They were excellent musicians and easy to work with. Would highly recommend!

Review by Caitlin H.

WeddingReviewed on September 30, 2017From Alexandria, VA

International Strings played for our wedding. Without having seen our ceremony we were able to communicate enough that they played the music exactly to the length we needed for the procession and it ended perfectly with me (the bride) just getting to my spot at the front. Throughout the night they played the perfect music for each phase--cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing with an exciting piece that got all of us up and dancing to close down the night. We had compliments from so many guests on how wonderful the musicians were. Truly a professional and fun group!
