"Penn Strings made my wedding day amazing! Hearing their gorgeous music float through the sky as I walked down the aisle was one of the most powerful moments I have ever experienced, and something that I will keep in my heart forever. I had to keep reminding myself that I was not in a dream! They really made my day spectacular... thank you for making my heart fly on the most important day of my life!"

I just wanted to end you a quick note of thanks for your work at our wedding. You were absolutely wonderful. I cannot tell you how many of our guests came to us during the reception to tell us how much they loved Penn Strings during the ceremony and cocktail hour.
A few of my new recently engaged friends also asked for your information as well. I had nothing but best to say about you and your performance. Please let me know if you ever need a reccomendation or reference in the future.
Thank you again for everything!"

"Penn Strings are wonderfully talented musicians. Their selection of music to play is amazing. I couldn't have been happier. They are great to work with, they arrived early and they played perfectly. They worked within my budget and were just wonderful. If you want a beautiful touch to your ceremony choose Penn Strings for your ceremony music."

Performing as a string duo, Penn Strings' Betsy Jacobson Holtz and Audrey Simons provided elegant wedding music for the outdoor ceremony.
"There is not anyone I would suggest working with more than Chris Souza. He is easy going, personable, and fun. He has the ability to pinpoint exactly what you would like for your special day. The level of elegance the musicians added to our ceremony was unmeasurable. The fun and unique touch they added to the cocktail hour was unforgettable. Everyone who attended our wedding has not stopped talking about it and Penn Strings is a major reason for that."
"Thank you, Penn Strings, for helping make our most important day so elegant and magical! No one compares to you!

"Dear Penn Strings,
Thank you so much for providing our music for the ceremony! I only wished I could have heard the prelude songs, as I heard you played something from Star Wars (HUGE fan!).
I also regret that I didn't get the chance to thank you in person, but my new husband said you two were very kind. So, thank you again! We really appreciate you making our day even more special; it was really a perfect wedding day!"

Hello everyone at Penn Strings!
I apologize for such a delayed thank you note, but we really wanted to email to let you know just how wonderful we thought you guys were! My name is Renee (Crisano) Newman and my husband is Dale Newman. We hired Penn Strings to play our ceremony and cocktail hour on October 7, 2011 at Stroudsmoor Country Inn (Ridgecrest). We also had an in-person consultation with Chris before the wedding took place.
We could not be happier with the way everything turned out! Our guests were raving about Penn Strings that day, and they still continue to do so now. Walking down the aisle to the sound of Penn Strings was one of the best parts of our wedding day. It really added the special touch we were looking for. Unfortunately, due to pictures with the photographer we were unable to be at the cocktail hour to hear the performance, but according to our guests it was incredible!
Working with Penn Strings was also very easy. From the very first contact email to the day of the wedding, everything went so smooth. We wanted to also say that Chris is the nicest guy, and he really understood our music preferences, helping us choose songs that fit us perfectly. We will highly recommend you guys to everyone.
Thank you so much!
-- Renee & Dale Newman
Dear Penn Strings,
Mike and I truly cannot thank you enough for adding such a special element to our wedding in Hawley, Pennsylvania. As others have said, planning a wedding from states away, is a challenge to say the least. We cannot thank you enough for the countless phone calls, emails, and you taking the time to meet us in person to plan our wedding.
One of our biggest goals of our wedding was to make it as personal and intimate as possible. That being said, thank you for playing my special request "Bless the Broken Road" to me walking down the aisle, this made our ceremony so much more special and meaningful to Mike and I. We are so grateful for you sharing in our ceremony, and adding an unforgettable piece to our wedding day.
-- Holly & Mike McGovern
