Hi Edina,
I hope you had a nice holiday weekend! This email is long overdue, but after all of the wedding/honeymoon/back to real life moments have settled, I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! I mean, I can’t even begin to thank you enough really. The music that your string trio performed for our wedding on Sunday May 3rd was amazing. It was so beautiful. My only regret is that I wasn’t out in the gardens to listen to the music for the half hour before the ceremony. I know our guests really enjoyed the music. I also wanted to commend and thank your group for their flexibility. Three quarters of our guests were stuck downtown due to a bike race that closed most of the streets. Our ceremony actually started 20 min after it should. The string trio agreed to stay through the delay and the ceremony and made sure that we still had the music for our wedding. I was blown away by their commitment and flexibility. I will be forever grateful. Lastly, I am very sorry and feel slightly embarrassed that we discovered this weekend that the best man forgot to give the gratuity check to the band. I mailed it this weekend to the address on the contract. Can you please be sure this is distributed? I am so sorry for the delay!
I’ll be making the rounds on the wedding review websites and there is no doubt that I will leave positive reviews for your ensemble. I just wanted to send an email directly to you to personally thank you for everything.

Forever grateful,
Rebecca and Alan

Hi Ladies,
I would love to thank the band for the spectacular job done at my wedding.
European Ensemble Strings is such a treat. The trio was so fantastic my guests are still talking about them a month and a half after the wedding. Edina promised me perfection and she delivered. Looking back on my day, my husband and I both agree that the band was worth every dollar and more! The Ensemble is reasonably priced for how they perform and the lasting impression they will leave is priceless.

“Words can barely express how pleased I was with the European Ensembles’ performance at the rehearsal dinner for Kate Wilkinson and my son, Craig, on Friday July 30 at the City Club of Fort Worth. For 2 1/2 hours my guests were treated to a wonderful and very fitting performance for this elegant dinner. During the dinner and even continuing the next day, I was constantly receiving compliments on the European Ensemble’s performance. I was very pleased and I will be referring others to you that require superior musical ability. Thank you for making this such an enjoyable evening for my son and his bride to be along with a multitude of guests.”

“We used the European Ensemble for both our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour music. They exceeded all our expectations! Edina was wonderful to work with throughout the process. She met with us upfront to discuss our vision for the wedding. This was very refreshing since many quartets won’t even meet with you in person. She was also quick to respond to every correspondence throughout the planning process. Edina even took a song that we loved from Cirque du Soleil and translated it for the quartet to play in our ceremony. It was beautiful! We received so many compliments on the music. We loved that the European Ensemble’s music selection is so versatile. We wanted more contemporary music for our wedding and they delivered it perfectly. We’d also like to mention how beautiful and professional they look. While music is of course the primary focus, it’s also nice to have a good visual presentation for your wedding. I cannot recommend them enough! THANK YOU!

And yes, please let us know if you record “Wedding Song” for your c.d. We’d LOVE to have a recording of it. It’s such a special song to us now.”

“Hello Edina!
I just wanted to tell you thank you for everything you did for the wedding at the Sheraton on March 13. It would not have been the same without the trio. Everyone had nothing but fantastic things to say about you. I really appreciate you and the work you did for my wedding. I can’t wait to see the video.
A million thanks.”

“Thanks to you and the European Ensemble for helping to make my daughter Elizabeth’s wedding so special. First of all, what a great opportunity for my daughter and me to come to your bridal show to hear and choose music for her wedding day. That was a special time for me and my daughter and a testiment to the service that you provide. You worked closely with Elizabeth and myself to make this process a wonderful experience. You answered all of our questions and gave insight that helped our decisions.
On the day of the wedding you were on time and looked so nice. The quality, musicianship and repertoire was amazing. It exceeded all of our expectations. Our many guests complimented the ensemble and enjoyed hearing you play. I listened to several string quartets when planning my daughter’s wedding and the European Ensemble blew me away then and at the wedding. You created beautiful musical memories for our daughter that she will treasure. One of my favorite sayings is “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” Thank you for taking our breath away with the beautiful music you played at Michael and Elizabeth’s wedding. Her father and I are truly grateful for everything.
God Bless You All”
