    Wedding Music

    We hired Cascasdia Quartet for our wedding at Saxe Pointe Park in Victoria. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day right beside the ocean. The music set the tone for a glorious ceremony. We worked with Katherine and her husband on the music selection months beforehand. They were so helpful and it was really great to be able to get their advice. They are both very creative and we ended up with a wonderful mixture of classical and modern music which made our ceremony unique and very personal.

    We highly recommend Cascadia Quartet for a memorable wedding or event.

    Cannot give the Cascadia quartet a stronger recommendation. They were flexible and invested in making sure that we were happy with our music. Further, they sounded far better than musicians we've heard at other weddings.

    10/10 would re-hire

    Katherine and Tyler were amazing to work with and very adaptable to our requests.
    They were the very first vendor we book for our wedding and made us have the most confidence in them. 10/10 rehire.
    The only issue I had with them was sometimes they were a bit slow to respond to my email, but that was not uncommon with the vendors we from the island.

    Cascadia was so professional and very flexible. They took the job very seriously and even had a meeting beforehand to play us pieces of music so we could hear what it sounded like first. I would definitely recommend them!

    Hello Katarina,

    It was a pleasure working with you, and thank you for being willing to meet in person - we always enjoy being able to meet our clients prior to the day in order to get to know them and get a good sense of what kind of music would really fit your day. Thank you for your kind review, and congratulations to you and your husband!

    Kind regards,
    Kathryn

    Amazing Music and Service

    We didn't know much about classical music but knew we loved the sound and wanted it to be a part of our ceremony. Our planner recommended Cascadia Quartet for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. We thought we wanted a quartet, Kathryn explained to us for our small wedding size (~80 people) we would likely only need a Trio or Duo, which actually reduced our costs. When it came time to choose our music, Kathryn put together the perfect ceremony list and even included our wedding song which was a modern one amongst the traditional music. The music was beautiful and perfect on our wedding in the gardens. We would highly recommend Cascadia Quartet to anyone!
