We typically play a 30 minute prelude before your ceremony starts, as your guests arrive and find their seats.
"Kennedy String Quartet provided music for my ceremony and cocktail hour. They were amazing! They have such a HUGE collection and range of music to choose from. Our guests could not stop talking about the music during our cocktail hour. Thanks again for making our day special!"
Newton White Mansion
Kennedy String Quartet has performed at hundreds of weddings since we started in 2016. We can help you curate the perfect setlist for your wedding or special event!
Music for everyone walking down the aisle! Three songs is the standard – one for the wedding party, the bride, and the recessional at the end.
Have us stay for cocktail hour! Pop music is our specialty, we have a huge library of songs to choose from. We’ll work with you to come up with the perfect playlist.
Want some nice elegant background music for your dinner reception before the DJ or band arrives? We can help transition your event into party mode by adding a drummer and/or a sax.
