Dear Andrew, I wanted to thank you and Monte Vista Strings & Jazz for providing such incredible music at our wedding ceremony and reception. The string quartet and the vocalist at St. Marks were absolutely fabulous. Although most of the day is a blur, I distinctly remember hearing Canon in D as I waited in the wings. Watching everything again in the wedding video confirmed that every note was flawless. The duo at the cocktail hour was also amazing. The transition from the more formal strings to the classical guitar was the perfect segue into the celebratory part of the evening. Thank you again for your professionalism and your remarkable talent! I couldn’t dream of a more perfect soundtrack to the day.

Love, Kelly
