We have performed at numerous locations around metro Richmond and beyond, including churches, private homes, the Jefferson Hotel, and favorite outdoor settings such as the Maymont Park's Italian Garden, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, Gardens at Sunday Park, Celebrations at the Reservoir, The Mill at Fine Creek, the Poe Museum, and many more. We have traveled as well to the Northern Neck, and to the mountains where we have performed at The Homestead, and at Royal Oaks along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
You've never heard us play, and may therefore be a bit uncertain about who we are. Be assured we feel privileged to be part of such a special occasion and approach each one with professionalism and care. Let us put your mind at ease by sharing with you some of the comments that came back to us on thank-you notes.
"Good evening Paul and Susan;
To say thank you for your incredibly beautiful music at Carrie and Dan's wedding would be an understatement! The day was perfect, the ceremony so meaningful and the Silverleaf String Quartet music gave heart, soul and grace to our daughters dream wedding. Your creation of the 'Inner Light' brought tears and joy to all that knew the story behind the music. You won't believe this but I just finished an IM to Jerry Brubaker who did the string arrangement. He was thrilled that you were able to play it and how beautiful the piece sounded. Forgive me for not greeting you at the church nor saying good bye, but know that you have my warmest thanks and praise. Our guests were delighted and continually complemented the quartet throughout the day!"

"My husband and I both want you and all the members of the Silverleaf String Quartet to know how absolutely wonderful we thought you were! Not only was the music beautiful and such a huge part of the ceremony and the reception - your willingness and graciousness in adapting to last minute changes was also greatly appreciated! It was certainly a pleasure to work with such talented, kind people. Please accept our thanks for making our daughter's wedding such a special event!"

"Thanks for doing a fabulous job at our wedding on 2/29. We got many compliments on the music. And thanks for adapting to the unstructured format - you went with it well! And, especially, for fitting us in before playing for Swan Lake. Chris loved the Beatles songs you added. Thanks for adding the West Side Story for us..."

" I am extremely happy that I had you!!! Everything was beautiful. You made my ceremony feel like I was Cinderella..and everyone the entire day kept coming up and telling me how wonderful you made my ceremony!!! It was so beautiful...and you made me forget about the weather and made everything OK. I never once doubted your professionalism and didn't even stress once about not meeting before the wedding. You made it seem like we went and practiced the ceremony a dozen times!!!!!! I am so happy and extremely thankful for the Silverleaf String Quartet and would love to be put on a reference list. I think my entire bridal party and guests would LOVE to be put on your reference list because everyone was so impressed. ...Thank you so much for making my day special and wonderful and joyous!!! From the newly Mr. and Mrs. Rodriguez!
