The musicians were so great to work with and performed beautifully! Our wonderful bride said that everything was exquisite and there is not one little thing she would have changed or that did not fit how she envisioned it in her mind! Thank you for a wonderful partnership!

They were on time, very lovely people :) and the music was fantastic! The combo of the guitar and violin was really great. I would highly recommend your services and when back in DC will definitely be using élan artists again!

They played all of our requests and Gabby was wonderful in coordinating all of the musicians. They were all very hospitable in including me during the "Ave Maria". The magnificent Ritz venue, overlooking the harbor with the Statue of Liberty shining underneath the deep blue sky peppered with fluffy clouds, and hearing the beautiful sound of the string trio, was truly a heavenly experience. The trio made it a spellbinding ceremony, one that we all will forever remember!

The girls played beautifully and everything was just perfect. Chad and I appreciate the fact that you were able to find sheet music for Ludovico Einaudi. We were pleasantly surprised and so happy to hear our favorite songs played at our wedding!
If that's okay with you, we will be happy to spread kind words about you if someone we know will be looking to have live music at their special event.
Thank you for helping us making our wedding day the way we wanted!

The trio played beautifully at our wedding. We highly recommend you to all of our family and friends.
We couldn't have been more pleased - the music was so beautiful and really made the ceremony complete!! Many of our wedding guests made a point to tell us how much they enjoyed the music - and that it was a welcome change from the "traditional" organ music!! I hope we will have an event in the future where we can enjoy their music again! Thanks for all your help along the way!
I thought the whole process went very smoothly from booking the group to working with Gretchen on finalizing everything. They arrived on time and did a wonderful job! I remember thinking how clearly they played and every person could hear them. The group looked very stylish and their performance was perfect. I will definitely recommend elan artists to anyone I know who will be needing musicians.
Thanks for following up with me! I will post comments on the knot.
The ceremony musicians were very professional--they were on time, appropriately dressed, and their excellent performance set just the right tone for the ceremony and cocktail hour.
Although I barely heard them because I was a little pre-occupied with looking at (my now) husband as I was walking down the aisle :) but I did hear the music on the video and it was perfect.
Many of the guest complimented on the Trio that performed at our daughters wedding saying that it was like something out of a movie and they thought it added something very special to an already special event. Thank You once again for all your help and for that wonderful Trio.
The musicians were prompt, courteous, professional and a joy to listen to. We had many comments from our guests as to how much they enjoyed the trio.
We shall certainly recommend Elan Artists to our friends and family
I couldn't have asked for anything better.
Everything worked out great and we were very pleased with the trio. I wish I had more feedback for you, but that part of the wedding went so quickly! The musicians played what we had requested in addition to other music in their repertoire, were very professional and were definitely a positive addition to the event.
although I didn't know it till I got my video back. I remembered them playing my entrance song and that was about it. Everyone commented on how nice the ceremony was with live music. Again thanks for the wonderful day!
I got so may compliments on the music. the string quartet really added to the elegance I was trying to achieve.
I really appreciate too the care and professionalism that was used in preparing for our big day. Gretchen, you were truly a pleasure to work with. I would happily recommend Elan Artists to anyone-please feel free to use me as a reference.
Many, may thanks for everything!
Élan Artists crafted a perfect performance, which contributed to a dream-like wedding day for both my husband and I and all our guests. We were told, and agree, that your performance of Vivaldi's "Spring" was inspirational. We have received countless comments on how elegant, yet personal the performance was. I know every time I heard the music I was captivated.
We are so happy that we decided to go with Elan Artists for both the ceremony and reception - and not a DJ like some other companies wanted us to do. The musicians moved to three separate locations during the outside ceremony and reception to allow all guests to hear the music. They were very flexible, friendly, and warm. The harp player even thanked us for allowing her to play our wedding. How heart-warming!
We also have some adorable photos of the harp player with my two-year old nephew looking on. Since many people don't get the chance to see quartets, especially the harp, we know it made a lasting impression.
I also want to take a moment and mention how Elan Artists were so easy to deal with. From the first contact, Elan Artists helped us to decide how many musicians would be enough, what would fit in the style that we wanted our wedding to be, and advice on music. Elan Artists finalized all arrangements months before the date, leaving our minds worry free for the music portion of our wedding.
Should anyone wish to contact us regarding their performance and professionalism, please feel free to share our phone number with them. It would be our pleasure to assist in any way possible in helping good, honest people who take pride in their art - and offer an exceptional product - to achieve success.
Again, thank you for your part in creating a memory that will last a lifetime.
We received many compliments on the musical selections and the artists performances. Your website and e-mail access certainly made planning a long distance wedding easy.
Thanks again for such great planning and a superb performance.
He and the group did a terrific job and the sound was rich and refined. Though he is American and sings with a slight accent in Portuguese, even my Brazilian family thought he did a great job at getting the vibe and sounds right. Also, he was a pleasure to work with, very pleasant and professional.
