I only used a cellist for my ceremony, but she was excellent and I found her prices to be reasonable.  Her name is Anamaria Achitei.  She also does trios or quartets, although I’m not sure about the contemporary music because I never asked her about that.

We used White Rose String Quartet.  They were AWESOME and so reasonably priced.  I just tried looking for their website and I don’t know if it exists any more, so maybe the members have moved on.  But worth looking into if you can spare some time for searching.

@kjwinter:

I love the Vitamin String Quartet, too, and am thinking of getting a string quartet for Cocktail Hour.  Have you tried reaching out to students at local colleges or the head of their music deptartment?  Usually, they are cheaper and they may have a more contemporary playlist.  Let me know what you find!

Try CTO Entertainment– I saw their “rock strings” at a showcase recently and they were really cool.  My contact is Carmen – [email protected].  I am hiring one of his bands for my wedding and they are great to work with– not sure about price on the quartet as we are having family members play at the ceremony, but it can’t hurt to ask…  If you do talk to him let him know Sarah sent you!

I’m in Wisconsin, so I can’t give you any names, but my quartet was students from the local university.  They sounded great, and wouldn’t accept any money from me.  Maybe you could put an ad in Craigslist for that sort of thing?

You may want to call a local college, or even high school, with good music programs. A lot of the students might be willing to play for less and the schools are usually willing to pass the information on for you. Could be worth a shot. 🙂

We used Brandywine Valley Talent, suggested above by another poster but not the string quartet. Our band was Jellyroll and they provided a pianist and saxaphonist for cocktail hour. We would have hired them to also do a string quartet if I wasn’t set on the church’s organ.
