the groom serenades the bride
Four Strings provided a string quartet for the wedding of Shawn and Jessie Varghese, held at Ashton Gardens in Corinth, TX on Saturday 9 July 2012.
Several elements combined to make this one of our more unique and memorable services. First, the wedding was contained within an actual worship service, complete with a praise music period and a full sermon. Secondly, the service featured a song written and performed by the groom, dedicated to the bride. The groom, Shawn Varghese, wrote the lyrics and music, while the string backing was arranged by Four Strings cellist and resident arranger, David Cason.

[box type=”box” width=”400″ template=”drop-shadow lifted” align=”left” color=”blue”]I highly recommend four strings! David was incredibly kind and willing to work with practically anything we were able to give them. They showed up on time, well prepared and even joining in with the spirit of the occasion. David is very talented. I had written a song to sing to my wife at wedding and David had taken my recording with just a guitar and arranged a four-part accompaniment to go with the vocals and guitar. It was just what I was looking for!! Lastly, he was willing to play 2 a song with very minimal music and warned that it would be “light” but it was far from it, everyone loved them!! If you are not wanting to worry about strings you need to book them!! -Shawn V, Corinth, TX[/box]
