    Perfect addition

    My husband and I hired Cascadia Strings to perform music for our wedding ceremony - and they were the perfect addition. So many of our guest commented that the trio added to the ambiance and loved our song selections - which Kathryn had been so helpful in providing recommendations. Our ceremony was so much more special thanks to Cascadia!

    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.

    Beautiful Music!

    We hired Cascadia as a trio for our wedding ceremony this past July 6 at Tigh-Na-Mara, and I LOVED having them! The combination of classical and modern music on strings was such a great addition to our wedding and filled the whole area of the Gazebo with amazing music! It made the rainy day seem warmer somehow! Thank you so much!

    Perfect and worth every penny!

    We had one heck of a wedding with lots of vendors that were just ... well ... off their A-game. Cascadia Quartet was not one of them. They were so professional and their music was absolutely wonderful. I would definitely use them again! My only regret was that I didn't have enough time as the bride to stop and listen to their music!!

    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!

    Cascadia Strings's reply:

    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!

    Extremely professional and accommodating!

    Kathryn and her musicians were an absolute dream to work with! She was fantastic with communication and was very accommodating to our music requests. We were extremely happy with how beautiful the music sounded and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend such a professional individual and her musicians! Thank you for making our day so special ❤️
