I would like to say a huge thank you to The Parisi String Quartet for their music at my Daughter's Wedding. It was absolutely beautiful especially during the ceremony & signing the register. ALL the guests commented on the music & mentioned a song or songs that they loved. Even during the chaos of the late Bride from a missing shoe you still continued to play & keep things running smoothly. We could not have made a better choice then you for the day. Wedding, December 2017
