A truly beautiful accompaniment to our wedding

We had an Elegant Touch of Strings provide a string trio to play at our wedding at St. Mary’s College in Moraga, and they were simply superb. From a medley of Beatles music as people were getting setup and settling in, to beautiful ceremony music, they also sounded wonderful. They were incredibly helpful and flexible in working with friends of ours who were singing during the ceremony, finding time to practice before our guests arrived to ensure they sounded like they’d been playing and singing together for years by the time the ceremony started! We’ve had numerous compliments on the music, and it’s all thanks to Sherry and her fantastic team.
