Our wedding planner recommended Su and Golden Gate Music to us for our ceremony. I was planning our destination wedding in Sonoma County from out of state, and I found the website to be a great introduction to the group. I especially enjoyed the audio samples of their work; they are truly talented. Two weeks prior to our wedding I was struggling to select a recessional song. I really wanted to have one of our favorite Jack Johnson songs, but it was not listed in the song list. However, I reached out to Su, and she composed the song we wanted for our recessional. It was absolutely perfect!
Su is the most wonderful and talented person, she actually customized and writed my special song request during the ceremony, and it was really touched.Everything turns out so perfect and our guest really enjoy the music thaat Golden gate music played.The music sounds so beautiful and amazing.We would hightly recommend golden gate music to the couple who love to have thier special moment.

"Some other string quartets basically said no or laughed at me when I asked. But Su took it in stride, did research into other string quartet versions of this song and came up with an outstanding rendition and for such a reasonable fee. And in my opinion better than all the other versions that I could find online and elsewhere."
