"Dear Amber and Quartet,
WOW WOW WOW!!!  You were magnificent!  When I came down the stair case at MMoCA Saturday to your beautiful music I literally got CHILLS!!! Thank you ever so much!  Your presence at the wedding elevated the surroundings to pure class.  I LOVED IT!!!  The reception/cocktail times were fabulous.  The weather MADE the venue for us.  It felt like God's love note to us all.   So, thank you for your amazing talents.  I would recommend you to anyone and I just hope someday I can hear you play again.  I was not able to just listen like I wanted but I received numerous compliments on the quality and greatness of the strings.  You have been a pleasure to work with and I feel very blessed to have connected with you.  Once again, Pecatonica, thank you thank you thank you and well done!!!"

"Dear Amber and members of Pecatonica!As I sit down to write this, 5 days post my daughter's wedding, I truly still get a lump in my throat when I think about/see & hear in my mind the sound of your quartet playing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as the wedding processional began with the grandparents/parents of the bride & groom...not to mention "Canon in D" as my daughter & husband/her father walked down the aisle....and all the glorious other musical selections before, during and after the ceremony, as well as during our cocktail hour at the Overture Center. As I told Amber when the three of us (bride, myself and Amber) first met greater than a year before our daughter's wedding...I had always dreamed of strings to be played at our daughter's wedding...yet I NEVER imagined just how BEAUTIFUL it actually would be...with the Pecatonica string quartet!  Furthermore, I cannot BEGIN to count the number of guests, as well as the Pres House Chapel staff and the Overture staff, who approached my husband and I during and after the wedding ceremony & reception, to share with us how the MUSIC was simply EXQUISITE...and how they THOROUGHLY enjoyed "such a treat"!!  Amber and her colleagues not only played each and every musical selection flawlessly and with passion and TLC...Amber was a gem to work with pre-wedding as well!  Our daughter had a long engagement of 2 years, and with that said, both she and myself as the MOB, pretty much knew exactly what we did and didn't want when it came to the music....or at least we "thought we did"!  We instantly clicked with Amber, as she is very easy to work with and listens to what you want, but at the same time, we encouraged Amber to share with us her thoughts/ideas/suggestions...of which Amber was ALWAYS spot-on and gave us excellent guidance....she truly knows what works, what doesn't, and what will make your wedding day more special than you could ever imagine!!Not to mention the fact(s) that Pecatonica was flawlesslly on time (actually arriving early and staying longer as needed), were very flexible and can easily adapt/think on their feet when things needed to be "tweeked" just a bit here and there...and through it all, always looking and acting very professional! While I reflect upon the beauty of that day....our guests arriving at the chapel pre-ceremony....the vision of our daughter and her father waking down the aisle....the mid-ceremony musical selections...the recessional....the joyful music played as our guests exited the church....and the cocktail reception at the Overture Center....I smile at the sight and the sound of the Pecatonica string quartet....which truly was EVERYTHING and more I had ever imagined for our daughter's wedding....the true icing on the wedding cake! :)  Thank you Amber and Pecatonica for making ALL of our dreams come true!  We will NEVER forget you!Hugs!"
