Beautiful Music For Your Day

Dream City Strings is a modern string quartet that believes that nobody should have to have a cookie-cutter wedding. Your day should highlight your uniqueness as a couple, and your music should be a reflection of that.

When you book Dream City Strings for your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour or reception, your wedding becomes a personal and intimate event that you and your guests will remember forever.

You not only can select classics from the likes of Mozart and Bach, but songs by current artists like Ariana Grande and Bruno Mars. Your guests will be astounded at how brilliant these popular hits sound when they’re played live with violins and cellos.

By the way, we partner with DJs, so even if you’ve already booked a DJ, you can still have a spectacular live performance for your wedding.

Another reason we’re unlike other groups? We’ve mastered stage management. That means we know how to engage and excite any crowd. We smooth unexpected situations (like your flower girl bolting down the aisle). And we ensure your event is seamless—no matter what arises.

So whether you’re looking for phenomenal live music for your wedding ceremony, reception or corporate event, you and your guests will be listening and watching in awe.
"Our guests kept telling us throughout the night how awesome it was to hear songs that they recognized. The ceremony music was beautiful – they are clearly very good at what they do! They are very well-priced, and I am so glad with our decision to book them."

"Perfect. It was perfect! Booking Dream City Strings made all the difference, adding an elegance to the ceremony that could not be achieved with recorded music."


Wedding Magic

Your wedding is once-in-a-lifetime. That’s why we design your music to represent and celebrate your unique love story.

You’ll have a string quartet that’s specially trained to perform at ceremonies and receptions. We mean it: we’ve worked with musicians across the nation to hone their performances and bring weddings to the next level. We’re like having the Vitamin String Quartet play at your wedding!

And through Dream City’s online planning portal, you’ll hand-select songs for your ceremony, cocktail hour or reception—or have our experts build a lineup for you.

Perfectly Tailored.

Your ensemble will consist of two violins, violas and cellos. Our instrumental blend offers the smoothest, most elegant combination for any genre.

You’ll also have the chance to select your songs in our own Music Portal that makes picking your wedding music as easy as picking your workout playlist—or guide our experts in building a perfectly curated playlist for you. Dream City Strings ensures you have a musical performance that captures the entire essence of your event.
"We had Dream City Strings for our ceremony and it was beautiful. They let us choose our music and even learned 2 new songs we requested. They were very professional and everyone loved listening to them play."

Frequently Asked Questions

What instruments are in a string quartet?
A traditional string quartet has 2 violins, 1 viola and 1 cello. This is our recommended format simply because it provides the best possible sound, but we can pair down to a trio (2 violins and 1 cello) as necessary.
What does the booking process look like?
Your first step is to get pricing and availability. After you decide we’re a good fit for your event, we’ll send you a digital contract. Once you sign the digital contract, you’ll be prompted for a 25% deposit. Once we receive your signed contract and 25% deposit, your date is secure and we start planning out your music.
How far in advance should we book the quartet?
We encourage you to book as early as is feasible since the majority of spring and fall weekend dates book up rather quickly. As a general rule, we recommend booking at least 6 months prior to the date of your event. We reserve dates on a “first come, first served” basis.
Are your rates negotiable?
Due to the high caliber musician we use (which prevents any wedding mishaps due to any issues caused by inexperience), our musicians expect a certain level of payment. Our rates are non-negotiable, but be on the lookout for any promotions we are currently running!
Do you charge more to play both the ceremony and cocktail hour?
Yes. The first reason we charge extra is that the musicians will be spending more time preparing additional music as well as spending more time on-site during your event. Additionally, playing a ceremony requires a different (more-robust) skillset than a cocktail hour, so we compensate our musicians accordingly.
Do you play outdoors?
Yes. Our only concerns are the safety of the instruments and the ability to provide quality music. This means that we must be in full shade (especially in the summer), and there must be no precipitation.
