"We hired Beautiful Strings to play our wedding and they were the icing on the cake to our very special day!!! Patrick and Co. were professional from start to finish. They helped us with music selections, were timely, well dressed, and most of all sounded amazing. We received several compliments about the music at the ceremony. Beautiful Strings was also very competitive in price! We give them 4 stars! I recommend Beautiful Strings to anyone who wants to have a beautiful and classy music at their event."

Your skillful rendering of our chosen pieces, and your ability to work on short notice with our soloist, Dustin, showed your true professionalism. My handkerchief got a real workout! Thank you for making our special day so unforgettable and please feel free to add us to your reference list under "very satisfied customers." "

"The music was of course wonderful, but what impressed me the most was how the musicians were paying close attention to how our wedding ceremony was progressing. They made on-the-fly adjustments that really made the ceremony seamless for our guests. It was a lovely experience and I would recommend Beautiful Strings for your wedding."

Thank you for making our wedding day one that no one will ever forget."

"We can't thank you and all the musicians who performed at our wedding ceremony enough for the beautiful music provided start to finish. One of the most important aspects of our ceremony, to us, was the music. We have received so many wonderful compliments on your performance and we love watching our video so that we can hear everything again. The music was so beautiful and was nothing short of perfect -again,
-Steven and Caroline Greene (St. Charles, Illinois)
"Beautifulstrings provided the most wonderful music for our garden wedding. They worked with us to plan the music program, played exquisitely, and were extremely professional. We don't plan to get married again, but would use them again for other occasions requiring the complement of trio music and certainly recommend them for your parties."
-Scott and Jenny Mohler (Chicago, Illinois)
"I had always imagined a string quartet at my wedding and I am so happy I hired them. Patrick was great to work with—very professional and personable—he even came up to me after the ceremony to introduce himself (as we had only spoken over the phone.) His string quartet pricing was very competitive and the talent was wonderful. I loved hearing the beautiful string music as I was walking down the aisle. My guests commented that the quartet really made the ceremony extra special. I can't wait to get my video back so I can hear them all over again! Thanks so much!"
-Jen & Ryan (Orland Park, Illinois)
"Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job at the wedding on Sunday, especially under the terrible conditions we were presented with. I would recommend you in a heartbeat as I thought you sounded beautiful and were consummate professionals just as you advertise. Thank you again for making the storms fade as the guests focused on your beautiful playing."
-Sharon Wagner (Geneva, Illinois)
"I have worked with Patrick Rustandi and Beautifulstrings for over a decade now. We have played together and they have provided music for us on many occasions, in many styles, both religious and recital settings. This vibrant ensemble has a vast repertoire and always, always plays with passion, dignity and grace. They enhance and beautify any occasion with professional skills and emotional brilliance."
