Sweetwater Strings is getting rave reviews from clients and audiences all over Arizona. Their delightful sound is appreciated and enjoyed at weddings, corporate events, and special events. Here are some of the comments from fans: 

  "I wholeheartedly provide Sweetwater Strings 5 stars for playing at my wedding in February. Not only did they play beautiful music, they were incredibly accomodating for the special music request that we had, and very responsive via e-mail. I would recommend them to any of my friends who are getting married in the future. They were even willing to travel to Tucson to play at my wedding. I can't say enough good things about them, and they were wonderful with the guests at the wedding as well. They were even willing to allow my 3 year old niece to look closer at their instruments - incredible! I received so many compliments on their music!"

"I hired Eily for our ceremony music for our Wedding in December 2010.
I had the Violin & Cello... it was absolutely beautiful! Everyone loved the class
of the duo for the ceremony. I was very pleased and would hire them again.
They were wonderful! Thank you so much for making our day beautiful."

  "Sweetwater strings did an excellent job at our wedding ceremony
and cocktail hour (we had booked a violin & cello duo). It was very classy,
and our guests told us they enjoyed the music. They were punctual and
professional. Also, it was a pleasure working with the owner.
She was very helpful and answered all my questions."

"My husband and I could not have been happier with the service
that Sweetwater Strings provided for us. We used a string quartet
for our wedding, and everything was perfect! My husband is a
music major and had some pretty specific and difficult music
requests, and Sweetwater Strings was more than willing to work
with us to accomplish these goals. Sweetwater Strings went
out of their way to work with us and contact us with special circumstances
while we were finishing school out of town, and even planned a
personal one-on-one meeting to discuss our specific individual contract.
Sweetwater Strings contacted us a few days before the wedding just to touch base one final time. On the wedding day,
Sweetwater Strings was very punctual, and were very organized
as to what they needed so as to help keep everything running smoothly.
During the ceremony, the quartet did a great job following the
flow of things. Many of the guests gave compliments to
my husband and I afterwords, based on the overall aura that
their music provided to the ceremony. They truly made the
day very special for everyone! My husband and
I would highly recommend Sweetwater Strings to anyone
planning an event. They far exceeded our expectations and
we would use them again in a heartbeat."

"We met with Eily during an open house, and booked her right there without looking any further. Everything ran
so smooth, and prices were unbeatable.

They did an amazing job and brought tranquility to the Sanctuary. I had a small wedding of about 75 people, and the duet was perfect!!

Thank you Sweetwater - will definitely recommend you guys to all." - Jodi

"Sweetwater Strings played for our
ceremony & cocktail hour for our wedding in Sedona.
They are affordable, accommodating (many other
companies were not willing to drive 2 hours away),
and were extremely professional. We first met with Eily, and immediately
booked her on the spot; we were shocked it would be affordable
enough to include a cocktail hour (something we hadn't planned on
doing with our tight budget). Lali and Patricia did a great job!
We would highly recommed them to anyone looking
to add that extra special touch."
- Ana

"Eily and the team at Sweetwater were GREAT! They pulled out some amazing arrangements for some of the songs that aren't available on sheet music. Their willingness to spend hours arranging and keeping the cost fair set them apart in their field! Totally recommend them - especially for current music set to strings!"
- Ginger and David

Eily put together the perfect music selection,
was not needy; I met with her once, gave her my info and what I wanted,
and she nailed it... no problem whatsoever! Many of my guests were
very impressed and thought it was the perfect touch for our intimate
ceremony. We chose a solo violin under the impression we would
only have 50 guests showing up, with close to 90 actually coming,
the sound level was still just as perfect! So great,
and highly recommended!

"We had a string trio from Sweetwater Strings play at our ceremony
& cocktail hour - they were fantastic! Eily was so great to work with,
and made coordinating the music so easy. She had helpful suggestions,
and was flexible to meet our needs. The music was so beautiful, and
we had many compliments on how great it was to have this live music
as part of our ceremony and cocktail hour. I compared numerous
string ensembles for price and quality. I found the best value
and felt the most confident in selecting Sweetwater Strings.
I would recommend them to anyone getting married!"
- Jessica


"The guitarist who played for my wedding and cocktail hour was amazing! It was the perfect atmosphere for both portions of my wedding- the ceremony music was hauntingly beautiful and the guests told me that the jazz he played during cocktails was upbeat and fun. They were more affordable than most other groups I inquired from. I would recommend them to any couple!

  "Sweetwater Strings provided excellent ceremony music. They accomodated a Catholic wedding ceremony with no preparation required from us! They made the process extremely easy, and all the music sounded fantastic! They were on time and well mannered. Would be glad to recommend Sweetwater Strings for any wedding event. Communication was open, and Eily provided requested feedback when needed. It was a pleasure to work with them!" - Lisa  

"Hi Eily, and everyone at Sweetwater Strings
(especially the ones who played at our wedding),

I just wanted to say thank you again for the fantastic job you
all did at our wedding! I have been hearing from everyone on how
amazing you all truly sounded, and I tell them all that I wish I
could have heard more of it. It is kind of a strange feeling to
put so much time and effort into picking a repertoire, and then not even
being there while a majority of it was being played. It really did
mean a lot to me that you were so willing and flexible to learning
new music. The Corelli is one of my favorites (most bummed that
I didn't hear this one), and maybe you can add some of this new
repertoire to your list? I hope everything goes well for you all in
the future, and that your business grows. We were 100% satisfied
with Sweetwater Strings and hope to have an occasion to use
you again. Thanks for everything again- you really started the
night off right for us!

P.S. - I guess my new 18-month-old niece was absolutely enthralled with
your string quartet. Her mother said during the prelude that she couldn't
take her attention off of your instruments or your music. I guess
it's never too early to start them young…"

"We planned a Destination Wedding for my daughter in
Scottsdale, AZ. While trying to find the right music for her
wedding, I came across Sweetwater Strings' website. I truly consider
myself lucky to have found Eily. The music she planned for
my daughter’s ceremony was perfect! She arrived before time (to be
sure she would start playing early), and even stayed after the
ceremony to be sure everything was perfect. I would recommend her
for any occasion, and should we ever plan anything else in the
Phoenix area, she would be the first person I would call to be sure
she could play for the date. Again, I cannot say enough
good things about Sweetwater Strings!"

-Cheryl, Wedding at Camelback Inn


"This was a leap of faith.. and it paid off!
I never once met Eily or her crew in person. I did everything
via email, and listening to her music from their website.
Eily was great to work with, and she was
responsive and creative in fufilling my desire for strings at
my wedding. I only got to hear a snippet of the music, and it
was breathtaking! My guests complimented the music, and
enjoyed the special touch. My only regret was not being able
to enjoy it more, since we only hired them
for the ceremony."
