Four Strings provided a string quartet for this wedding at Ashton Gardens in Corinth, TX. The picture above is from the balcony where the musicians perform, which provides both a fine view and extraordinary acoustics. The wedding chapel, with its tall windows and wooded surroundings, provides the ambience of an outdoor wedding, but with none of the risks of July in Texas!
The music for the ceremony was classical and traditional, perfectly matched to the setting and ceremony.
