Mark and I join Stephanie and Leander in thanking you for adding such a magical, elegant touch to their wedding Sunday evening at the Round Hill House.  Your musical artistry made the occasion so much more memorable, with a gentle, loving sweetness that so fit the mood. Thank you also for your patience and perseverance throughout the triangulated, transatlantic planning.  The results were glorious! We'd be honored to serve as references for the Bardavon Quartet in the future.

Let me also voice my gratitude. The music was absolutely perfect, and we were so pleased with "Here Comes the Sun". It truly made our garden wedding so special!!!

Thanks again



I'm writing to express our gratitude for your work in preparation for and during our wedding. The music was wonderful and we were so pleased that you were able to accommodate our somewhat outlandish request! You performed it beautifully and we felt that it added an awesome touch that tied the whole thing together. So, in short, thank you very much. Your contribution was paramount to the success of our wedding. We'll be sure to recommend your work to others.

Kind wishes
Leander and Stephanie


It was a pleasure to work with such a talented, professional group of musicians. You provided excellent music suggestions and were available for rehearsals. Singing with the quartet was both moving and exciting. Your music definitely made the wedding a very elegant and poignant occasion.

All the best

I wanted to thank you and the Bardavon String Quartet for playing at our wedding.  We received many favorable comments on your group.  We were especially pleased that the quartet was able to play the Shostakovich "Romance", which is one of Linda's favorite pieces, at the opening ceremony.  It meant a lot to both of us.

The only regret we have was that we were so busy greeting and talking with our guests that we didn't have as much time as we would have liked to enjoy your playing.

We would be pleased to recommend your group to anyone who might be interested in having you play for them.  They can contact us at p.pivawer@worldnet.att.net.

With best regards,
Phil Pivawer and Linda Hewlett

Carl and I can't thank the Bardavon String Quartet (and especially Joel and Valentina) enough for making our wedding day so beautiful.  The Quartet played our very special request - "Nella Fantasia" - for our ceremony.  And Joel was even able to play part of the arrangement for us on oboe!  It was incredible!  You both did such a fantastic job, from planning to execution, and all of our wedding guests commented on the beautiful music at the ceremony.  We will never forget your kindness and attention to detail on our wedding day.  We are honored to be able to recommend such accomplished and talented musicians.  You may contact us at heidi55@comcast.net.

Thank you for your guidance in making my daughter's wedding day truly beautiful.  Right from the start when I began e-mailing you about the possibility of using your group to play at her wedding, you were always, and I mean always, readily accessible.  It was quite obvious that you are a true professional in all that you do.  You assisted in guiding us, and selecting musical arrangements that personalized her ceremony and made it extra special.

Your assistance and flexibility was amazing.  Working with our soloist, helping to ensure that the program was written properly, coordinating with our priest, providing reassurance along the way ... all little touches that added up to making her day absolutely perfect!

The performance at the chapel was extremely beautiful.  The bride and groom as well as the guests commented numerous times that the music brought the Mass together in a very special way.

I would be happy to speak with anyone personally.  I can be contacted at barki3@aol.com.

Thank you again.

I never had a chance to formally thank you and the rest of your musicians for the wonderful music you provided at our wedding on June 10th, 2007 at the Gardens on Catlin Creek. We were very impressed with your performance. Thank you for helping to make our wedding everything we  dreamed it would be. I will be sure to recommend your group whenever possible.

Thanks again,

Marisa & Evan Mattis


Sasha and I just got back from our honeymoon and I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful job your trio did at our September 28th wedding at Round Hill House.  The music was beautiful and I couldn't have asked for anything better!   We were so pleased you were able to add the flutist to the trio for our special processional request. Even with the wind and rain during our ceremony and the mad rush to flee to the atrium, you were quick to set up indoors for us and continue on as if it was nothing.  We really appreciate that! 

My best to you all!  Thank you again!

Teresa and Sasha Lamb
