I didn’t plan on nor did I ever think of having any form of string instruments during the wedding until I heard them playing at one of the venues during The Big Reveal. It was then I knew I had to have them . Forte is absolutely amazing brought me to tears and chills through my body. The only downside, on my end, I wish I would’ve splurged more and had them stay longer so I could’ve enjoyed them. Our guests loved them, I suppose that’s all that truly mattered, but I would’ve loved to hear them outside of the ceremony. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. THANK YOU!
The ladies of Forte performed at my Catholic ceremony in June and were absolutely wonderful! The first time I heard them play at a bridal show I knew they were a must have for my wedding. The music set the tone for the ceremony and made everything feel more elegant. I received many complements on the music and I couldn’t have been happier with my choice! Thank you ladies for everything – if I did it all over again, I would choose Forte every time!
Beautiful music at the wedding ceremony! Very professional and easy to work with. Very supportive in providing music selection suggestions and vey flexible in working with ideas from the bride and groom. Forte was a wonderful addition to the wedding ceremony!
Forte was amazing to work with! We were so pleased with their song selection, professionalism, and they were responsive and friendly. I wish we could replay our ceremony with their music over and over again!
I have used Forte for both my daughters wedding in 2015 and most recently for my son’s wedding in August 2017 at the Intercontinental Hotel on the Plaza. They are excellent to work with, very professional and responsive to our requests. From traditional wedding songs, to Elvis , Bruno Mars, The Police, to even Super Mario theme song and the Walking Dead! Our friends and relatives loved their music and several took the name and number for their children’s upcoming weddings. They played for both the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour.
When we met with The Forte, I was a little drained on all the wedding decisions. I assumed we’d sit in a stuffy room silently listening to classical music. Instead, our wedding meeting with them was my favorite meeting with any vendor. The ladies were extremely friendly and made us feel comfortable right away. They can play absolutely anything- from classical to Frankie Valli to Guns N’ Roses to Jason Derulo. Every single song they played sounded beautiful. It instead turned into an amazing private concert where we got to call out any song in their massive book of options. My face actually hurt from smiling so much. Our initial meeting was such a wonderful private date when wedding planning can get overwhelming. Also, they were extremely helpful showing us what’s popular, traditional, or out of the box that they had done for other weddings. They didn’t push us any particular way but helped us figure out exactly what we wanted. As you can imagine, they were a dream for the actual wedding. Can you please score all our anniversaries?
Kristi and the Forte Team were seamless to work with – The process was organized and simple while they accurately communicated what I could expect to avoid last minute surprises. They were patient, flexible and encouraging as we navigated picking songs that were meaningful to us. The music itself was SO WORTH IT!! My wedding was in a small space that allowed the music set the mood perfectly. I have had several guests say that the music was their favorite part. Live music was the way to go- I wish I could have afforded to have them there the whole night. You will not be disappointed whether you pick songs from their lists or choose to have them arrange songs for you. Blessings to them for sharing their talent!
Forte sounded lovely on our wedding day and was so easy to get ahold of! Would definitely recommend.
I was impressed with the quality of service and attention from day 1. As soon as we started conversations about my Wedding there was never more than 24 hours where I didn’t get a response to my emails. Many times it was only a matter of hours before I had a response.
In regards to the music, again I was thoroughly impressed with the flexibility and desire to help find just the right music. Many of my requested songs were not in their current selections and I feared I would be stuck searching high and low to find sheet music for those songs… NOT the case at all. Instead I had daily updates from Kristi on which songs she had found and where I can go to find others. I was very impressed!
I found the price point to be very reasonable and honestly a bargain for what we received. The music was greta and even the songs they haven’t played before sounded amazing. I would highly recommend Forte Quartet to anyone planning their special day. You are sure to be in good hands.
