Client Testimonials

Below are reviews from our previous wedding and special event performances, playing both our classical and contemporary repertoire.
If you have any questions about our services or availability, please contact us.

My husband and I are so glad we went with a quartet for our ceremony rather than a DJ. It would have been more cost efficient for us to only have our DJ play but Luminous Sounds was so worth it and we don’t regret it one bit. From start to finish, the entire process with engaging Luminous Sounds was easy, organized, and painless. Their repertoire is vast and allowed us to select songs that fit tastes - they even scored songs for us that they didn’t have! We chose a mix of classical, pop, hip hop/house, and R&B - it was all played beautifully and added a wonderful and personal touch to our ceremony. They played from guest arrival through our ceremony and really set the tone for our wedding - we started and ended the day strong!

Luminous Sound recently played for us at our wedding reception in Greenport. We could not be any happier that we chose Kimberly and Luminous Sound to provided our guests with a most pleasurable sensory experience. The music was absolutely beautiful. 

As we approached the reception venue on foot with our guests the beautiful sound of the string quartet, playing was gently flowing through the air, drawing us closer. When we arrived we were greeted with one of our favorite songs, which was preformed beautifully. It was the most memorable and beautiful moment standing, with my husband at my side, the sun gently filtered through the Pergola and Beech tree, listening and softly singing along to Sara Barellis’ “I choose you”. That bespoke moment in time will forever be embedded in our memory. And for that, we cannot thank them enough! 

Throughout the reception the group played beautifully, all of our guests commented on how great they sounded. We thoroughly enjoyed the elegant simplicity of having a string quartet play at our wedding, and we couldn’t be happier with choosing Luminous Sound. Kimberly was an absolute pleasure to work with and in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, gave us confidence that our wedding day would be perfect. Thank you Luminous Sound for bringing the element of beautiful sound to our wedding day.

Their string quartet is absolutely amazing! We hired them for our wedding ceremony. We communicated with Kim via email and she was very easy to work with. The whole process from the beginning to the end was such a breeze (as all brides hope it to be). They accommodated our music choices and blended classical with pop music perfectly. Our ceremony wouldn’t have been complete without them! Thank you so much Luminous Sounds!!

Most little girls dream of their wedding day and all of the perfect little details that go with it. Well, I can tell you - I wasn’t one of those girls. However, the one thing that I did always dream of was having a string quartet at my wedding. Maybe it was those two years of viola in middle school...or maybe it is just something about the culmination of the strings coming together that is just so beautiful... We found Luminous Sounds while at a bridal event after having gotten recently engaged in spring of 2015. After listening and meeting with them, we knew we had to have them play for our wedding. Kim was probably the best and easiest vendor we communicated with from the get-go. She made everything so EASY and was always there if we had any questions on anything. The music they play ranges from classical to upbeat, pop and contemporary. How many grooms can say they walked down to Taylor Swift’s (hubby’s secret guilty pleasure...shhhh) “Love Story”? They even learned a song for me to walk down to by one of my favorite all-time bands, The Decemberists (The Hazards of Love 4). For whatever reason, the excitement of the day, my dad walking me too fast down the aisle..I didn’t get to really hear this song, but it’s all okay. Even the photographer commented on how great they were and that they played Metallica while people got to their seats. All in all, the perfect background to our ceremony and the music tailored to our tastes and preferences. We couldn’t be happier, and highly recommend Luminous Sounds string quartet - a superbly talented group of women.

Luminous Sounds provided a strong duet at our ceremony, and a quartet at our cocktail hour. To say they were spectacular would be an understatement! They played everything from Mozart to Red Hot Chili Peppers! Kimberly was an absolute DREAM to work with — so easy to communicate with, and always on top of everything. I can’t thank them enough! I HIGHLY recommend this company if you are looking to add strings (and percussion!) to your special day!

Luminous Sounds was just the perfect fit for our wedding ceremony on 9/23/17. Their repertoire is wonderfully dynamic so it was very easy to choose the perfect songs to represent us as a couple. We also requested to have a special but unusual song played during our recessional but they were on top of it with no hesitations. 10/10, just amazing!

My husband and I got married on 4/22/17 and were so happy that we chose to have an electric violinist from Luminous Sounds play classical music during our ceremony. It added the perfect special touch that we were looking for within the budget we could afford. There honestly is nothing like live music to walk down the aisle to. My now husband said the moment that heard the music change to the bridal march when I was about to walk down the aisle is one that that he will remember forever as it made everything feel so exciting, real and gave him chills as it was so beautiful! There were many classical repertoire song options to choose and the options we chose were played beautifully! Working with Kimberly was so easy and the process was incredibly seamless. Everything was laid out in a simple template for me to complete and she was super timely with communicating if I had any questions. She also was amazing at sending reminder and follow up e-mails. As a side note not related to the beautiful music played Kimberly took a gorgeous picture of me and my husband during our recessional and posted it on instagram which I’m so grateful for because it was absolutely stunning! Just goes to show they go above and beyond their job and truly love what they do! I would 110% recommend Luminous Sounds to any couple who wants to make their wedding ceremony extra special! Adding live music is a detail that should be added to every wedding! Thanks again!

These girls are fantastic! Was debating between a harpist or string quartet for my ceremony and cocktail hour and so glad we chose Luminous Sounds string quartet. They got back to me quickly after my first inquiry and walked us through the process to make everything easy for us. They do beautiful classical music for the ceremony and are awesome at pop music for cocktail hour. They do all songs from Nirvana to Coldplay to Jason Mraz and Journey. And it sounds amazing! Everyone couldn’t get over how great they were and were singing along. Kimberly was a pleasure to work with and guided us the whole way through. They were on time, professional and wonderful. I am so happy they were part of our wedding day. Would not have been the same without them. Thank you so so much.

Luminous Sounds is amazing! They provided the soundtrack to my dream wedding. I will never forget walking down the aisle to their beautiful music. My guests are still raving about the elegance they brought to the event. Hiring them was one of our best wedding planning decisions we made.
