Jesse and I both want to thank you so much for the time you took to come to our wedding. The music was the perfect touch to our ceremony. We didn't have to worry about anything. You were there early, played beautiful music, and were so friendly. We couldn't have asked for anything better. We will definitely be giving your name to our friends who are getting married!
Thank you again!

The Innocenti Strings were a fantastic string quartet! Extremely professional and talented! The music was beautiful and elegant and fit our theme perfect! Several guests commented on how great the Innocenti Strings were and thoroughly enjoyed listening to the music throughout the evening. The Innocenti Strings were a huge Plus to our special day! Also, we felt they were very reasonably priced for such high quality musicians. Very pleasant and easy to work with! We would highly, highly recommend them to anyone!
Thanks again Pascal. Very gratefully yours,

We were very pleased with the service we received from Pascal Innocenti! They were very helpful and easy to work with when it came to planning the music for our ceremony. The cello player that played in our ceremony did a fabulous job and we got many compliments from our guests. I would stronly recommend his services to anyone looking to add a little "something" to their ceremony or reception.
... Your talented quartet added a touch that could not be reproduced by any recording. You have made our day unforgettable.

Pascal and his quartet played beautifully, and were very professional. I even arranged a piece for the quartet to play, and left the viola part in bass clef - the violist covered my mistake beautifully by reading in the wrong clef! Very flexible group, I'd hire them again in a heartbeat
Pascal was very professional and played very well. He went out of his way to make sure that all the musical arrangements were just the way we wanted them. His whole group was dressed very well and were a pleasure to work with. I was greatly pleased with his performance at our wedding and would definitely recommend him.

I came to your recital yesterday, and I just want to say WOW! You really are amazing at what you do.. all the pieces you played were beautiful. Your passion shines through when you play. I'm looking forward to have your quartet play for my wedding ceremony!
The music for my wedding on 4-8-o6 was beautiful! Pascal was very helpful in choosing my selections and even found the song (not in their repertoire) that I wanted so it could also be played. Innocenti Strings professionalism and helpfulness really made the whole process easy and the music really was as I had always dreamed for my wedding day! Thank You so much for contributing to making everything so perfect. Innocenti Strings was one thing that I did not have to give a second thought.
"...The choice and performance of music was excellent. Our guests commented on how nice it was to have a string quartet and it certainly made the day. We would like to wish you all well for the future and we will certainly be recommending you to any of our friends."
