What We Do

Puget Sound Strings specializes in working with brides and grooms to select and perform the music that makes your wedding day exactly as you have imagined. Whether you have an ear for timeless wedding classics, jazz standards or pop hits, we can play it all. With our years of experience playing at weddings, we know how to time our selections perfectly, and adjust to all different types of acoustic settings.

Our string quartet is also able to perform as a trio, duo or as solo instrumentalists. Other instruments we frequently play with include Piano, Harp, Flute, and Trumpet. If you have any questions about mixing these instruments into the ensemble, ask us any time.

What is included

Included in our wedding ceremony package is 25-30 minutes of prelude music, processional music, music during the ceremony itself (if desired) and 5-10 minutes of postlude music. We arrive early enough to meet with the day-of coordinator, set up, and start playing music on time.

Any music from our extensive repertoire. Additionally, we can arrange and learn new songs and pieces starting at $50.
