String Quartet Wedding Songs for Your Oregon Wedding

Wedding Songs are Stunning With a String Quartet

A string quartet is what many people imagine when they picture wedding songs performed live at a ceremony. Maybe it dates back to all of the movies where the string quartet is frantically playing the Wedding March while the bride and groom run into some sort of problem that is thwarting their efforts to tie the knot. Maybe it’s the fact that kings and queens would hire court musicians to perform for their special events back in the day when Kings and Queens did that sort of thing. Whatever the reason for the string quartet’s prevalence in pop culture, there are some really great reasons to bring this gorgeous musical ensemble to your Oregon wedding!

String Quartet Wedding Songs

  1. String Quartets Look Really Gorgeous!

    So much better than the speakers and chords associated with recorded music. Also better than a keyboard. Am I biased? Maybe but seriously . . . violins and cellos are amazingly beautiful, hand-crafted pieces of artwork in their own right.

  2. String Quartets Create a Rich and Full Sound.

    If you’re having an outdoor wedding in Oregon with live music you want to make sure that people can hear the ensemble playing all of your favorite wedding music!

  3. Nobody Does Traditional Wedding Songs Like Canon in D Better

    Sorry bagpiper but pieces like Canon in D and Vivaldi’s Spring are just begging for 2 Violins, a Viola and Cello. It’s classic, elegant and totally fitting for Oregon’s natural beauty.

  4. String Quartet Beautiful Violin

  5. Pop Music and Contemporary Music Arranged for String Quartet is Awesome!

    Over the past 13 years of performing for weddings, we’ve amassed an insanely large collection of contemporary wedding songs arranged for our beloved string quartet. Check it out on our Repertoirepage. . . you won’t find a larger or more diverse list in the state of Oregon! You are definitely going to find something you love on this list for your wedding but if not, no worries: we include 2 custom new song arrangements with every wedding music reservation!

  6. String Quartets are Rare, Special and Definitely Worth the Splurge at a Wedding

    So there’s a longstanding discussion in my marriage about the point of flowers. My husband (who is awesome don’t get me wrong) doesn’t really get why buying something that’s already dead (aka a beautiful bouquet of roses) is a good idea–it’s already dead. It won’t last he says. But for me, I love the beauty of the roses while they are vibrant. It makes me feel special to have something like this in my home even though they won’t last forever. Same with a string quartet at your wedding–sure, it’s not going to “last” forever like your pictures but it is still definitely worth the splurge if it makes you feel special, celebrated and that this day is something that is truly memorable!
