Thank you so much to the Luminous String Quartet for playing so beautifully for our wedding at Bridges Golf Course. Our theme song for the wedding was “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey and we were astonished when Karen said it could be arranged. We’ve never heard anything like it before. It was awesome!
