A Note from Ariana
Don't know where to start? Don't worry! We go above and beyond to make sure every detail is perfect and exactly as you've imagined.
When you book Ariana Strings, that means I'll be your one and only coordinator, helping you every step of the way. Over the years, I have fine-tuned my way of organizing all the details and helping my couples plan their ceremony and music.
I want to make your planning process easy and fun. I'll incorporate your style preferences and personality so our music fits in with your overall wedding vision.
Behind the scenes, I also work closely with your wedding planner, venue coordinator, and officiant, so everything will be perfectly in place for your wedding day.
All the Hits from 1645 to Today
Our extensive song library is filled with classical music favorites, pop songs, classic rock, Disney, Broadway, jazz, and more. When we play Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years" and Journey's "Don't Stop Believing," you're hearing music that was tailored especially for strings. That means you're getting a beautiful instrumental cover that truly compliments the original song and artist no matter which of our ensembles you choose.
Like Vitamin String Quartet, we perform pop string quartet covers of your favorite music and, yes, we definitely have Bridgerton!

"Ariana is amazing! You could not ask for a more professional and talented musician."
- Kristen, Bride
"Ariana is by far the sweetest person I worked with throughout my entire wedding. She really got to know Greg and I before the big day, and got a feel for exactly what we wanted/expected. I can't imagine how hard it is timing live songs with a ceremony... but Ariana and the trio KILLED it. We had about 30 people come up to us saying how beautiful their performance was. They were absolute perfection and made me the happiest bride!"
- Alyssa, Bride
