We booked a cello and violinist for our wedding, and Ariana & her team were absolutely perfect for our Aria wedding! Ariana is funny, sweet, attentive, and extremely talented! She kept it laid back and fun to pick the music, but was extremely timely and made sure she checked in on a regular basis throughout the planning process. I didn't have to worry about a thing! I can't thank her and her team enough for a beautiful start to our day! <3

-Michelle, Bride

Absolutely wonderful! The musicians played for our ceremony and cocktail hour.We received so many compliments from the guests. The violin & cello duet played current pop songs as well as classical music. Ariana was so easy to work with and was very thorough in establishing exactly what we wanted played. Highly recommend Ariana Strings for your big day! 

-Erin, Bride

Ariana and her cellist, Elizabeth, added so much to our service! From the start, Ariana was extremely professional, responsive, and accommodating to our specific requests (songs, set-up, etc.) But the best part was the performance the day of. They added such a rich dimension to our event. I was so thankful we'd found them and convinced we'd made a wise investment!
