The perfect music for your wedding.

The perfect music for your wedding.

Nelson String Quartet weddings

“Although I was not outside during the prelude – we had so many guests compliment us on the musicians in the string quartet. They played the songs we asked during the seating of parents and entrance of the wedding party, and the song I walked down the aisle to was one I will always remember playing! It was beautiful!!! They answered all of my questions in a very timely manner and ensured I felt comfortable with the plan for the day. They also worked very well with my wedding coordinator. I am so happy we chose Nelson String Quartet to be a part of our special day and would pick them again in a heart beat!”

Jessica Burkhart


Nelson 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!


We typically play a 30 minute prelude before your ceremony starts, as your guests arrive and find their seats.


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.

Cocktail Hour

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 with some of our upbeat selections.
