“Wonderful and very talented. Would and will use Stephanie again.”

- Clint M., Groom, Hilton Greenville,

“Stephanie is a joy, a treasure, and most definitely worthy of 5 stars! My husband and I deeply appreciated her amazing talent, which she so graciously lended to our 10/12/2013 wedding ceremony. She is professional, communicative, and insightful. She played the prelude, processional, and recessional music at our ceremony, all of which created a joyful atomsphere, in addition to treating us and our guests to a concert-worthy classical performance! Stephanie truly made our day wonderful, memorable, and uniquely ours! My husband and I could not have imagined a contribution to our event as beautiful and perfect as the one she gave us. Much gratitude from Sarah and Sean!” 

- Sarah E., Bride, Northbrook Hilton, 

“I was very pleased working with Stephanie from start to finish. Personal and professional, I found her easy to talk to. She took all requests into consideration and used her professional judgment when necessary. My guests are still telling me how much they enjoyed the prelude music they heard, while awaiting our ceremony. Each musician showcased wonderful talent. I would recommend Stephanie whether you are looking for a solo performer or a small ensemble, she will deliver!”

 - Rebekah D., Bride, Shores of Turtle Creek,

“My experience with Stephanie was outstanding to say the least! Stephanie creatively adapted to our venue which included strolling amongst the guests playing her violin - everyone loved it. We had some time prior to the event to get acquainted and it was truly a pleasure to interact with her on a one-on-one level as well. If I am hosting another gathering in the Chicago area, booking Stephanie will be my first call. I highly recommend Stephanie and would gladly share my experience further if desired.” 

 -Chris Z., CEO, Signature Room At The 95th, 

“Working with Stephanie was tremendous. Stephanie is extremely professional, and kept in close contact with me until the day of my brothers wedding. Her performance was flawless, hitting every note perfectly and producing full sound. All of my guests really appreciated her performance during the ceremony and cocktail hour. Her talent truly set the mood, and made the evening elegant and classy. So happy I chose Stephanie to perform at my brothers wedding. I plan to use Stephanie for my next elegant affair.” 

-Mark I., Brother of Groom, St. George Church,

“Stephanie was spectacular from beginning to end in planning and accommodating to our event. She is consummate professional and a wonderful person. I highly recommend her and would absolutely use her again. She was simply outstanding.


Solo & Duo Reviews

“Quintessential Strings was excellent! Extremely talented and versatile, Stephanie and her group played Classical to Jazz to Irish folk to Rock and Roll on strings! It was exactly what we wanted: classical leading up to the ceremony, Canon in D for the bride (played perfectly), classical to begin the reception while people were eating and getting their first drink, then funnier, upbeat jazz tunes, Irish folk and Rock and Roll as the food ended and the dancing began. It was perfect! All this from one group! I highly recommend Stephanie for your wedding or any event.”

- Sam M., Groom, Private Home, 

“Stephanie was extremely easy to work with. She arranged a song just for my daughter’s wedding, which provided the perfect touch to the ceremony. To create the trio I asked for, Stephanie secured highly professional musicians to play with her and the music was exceptional! I would strongly recommend Stephanie Quinn and Quintessential Strings to anyone wanting a highly professional performer for any event!” 

- Diane H., Mother of Bride, Private Home,

 “Stephanie Quinn is AMAZING! Not only did she coordinate a song with our vocalist from New York City, she met with him IN NEW YORK to discuss the piece. We could not have been more pleased. She was the highlight of our ceremony, and the guests were raving! You MUST hire Quintessential Strings for your next event!”

- Rebecca C., Bride, Olympia Hotel,

“Stephanie was very easy to work with. She found solutions for all of the little concerns and hiccups that accompany every wedding, and the result was fantastic. The music was lovely for our outdoor ceremony. We used a duet, and everyone was impressed with the quality of music they provided with only two instruments. I would use them again without hesitation!”

- Jennifer B., Bride, White Deer Run Golf Club, 

“Stephanie was wonderful! The talent and energy she brought to our intimate ceremony was really the icing on the wedding cake. She was very helpful in picking out the perfect musical selections and giving her suggestions as to placement of them in the ceremony. Stephanie was very positive and energetic when communicating with me. She was early the day of our ceremony, which began at 6:30 am and was nothing short of professional in every way at the event. Played on que and was very accommodating. She even braved the 50 degree weather! Music was not something I had to worry one second over. She made it flawless.” 

- Wendy H., Bride, Michigan Lakefront, 

“Stephanie listened to what I wanted and arranged a musical composition that PERFECTLY fit my needs. I would definitely recommend them.”

- Martin O., Party Host, Private Home,
