About Our Musicians:
Ariana Strings LLC players are active professionals in the classical music industry: All conservatory-trained musicians who perform in Connecticut's most prominent symphonies, chamber ensembles, operas, and musical theater & ballet orchestras.
Performing in over 60 weddings per year together, we have a unique, blended style and work together as a perfect unit. We genuinely care about our couples and go above and beyond to make sure your day is everything you've envisioned.
I've been performing for weddings and private events for nearly 10 years and each wedding season, I fall more and more in love. As a professional violinist, I am lucky to have a flourishing career performing in Connecticut's premier symphony orchestras, ballets, Broadway theater tours, and operas. Performing for brides and grooms is a wonderful creative outlet, allowing me to bring my art to new audiences, visit new places, and to jam with some of the greatest musicians around. Don't get me wrong, I love Beethoven and Mozart, but I can't help but smile each time I play tunes by The Beatles, Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love" or Journey's "Don't Stop Believing". Away from my music stand, I'm a wife and puppy mom, world traveler, spicy food aficionado, and photography newbie.

Beautiful music with smooth and easy set up
They were absolutely wonderful. We chose a violin and guitar combo for our beach wedding, and it added an elegance to our ceremony that made all the guests really happy. The musicians handled everything - they had their own sound system and chose the perfect spot to set up. They communicated clearly before the day and set up with no trouble. We chose songs for the processional/recessional that weren't in their collection so it cost an extra $10 per song, but they did a *perfect* job with the arrangement so I would say it was worth every penny. They also played great songs for the rest of the time (pre-processional and post-recessional). I really like that they have samples on their website - honestly, everything about this company is easy and goes smoothly. I highly recommend Ariana Strings!Sent on 08/14/2019
Ariana Strings's reply:Thank you so much, Liz! We had so much fun learning your wedding music and are so glad you enjoyed our performance! Your beach wedding was so beautiful and we had a fantastic time playing. Thank you for letting us be part of your special day. Best wishes!
I recently had the pleasure of working with Ariana and I hope I get to work with her again. It's always wonderful to have live musicians for a wedding but especially so when they are as talented and focused on creating a beautiful experience as Ariana was. She assembled a gorgeous trio and their music added a layer of depth that is always appreciated at an event as meaningful as a wedding ceremony. She was so organized (which I greatly appreciate) and we communicated weeks before the wedding to make sure we were on the same page. That kind of dedication is rare and it means that Ariana cares about the couples with whom she works. And that translates into an amazing experience for the couple, their families and their friends.
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and listen Ariana play during a ceremony. She was absolutely wonderful, never skipped a beat and transitioned seamlessly throughout the whole ceremony and cocktail hour. She was a true joy to work alongside. Highly recommend!
Ariana is a superb musician. Her music brings life to the event and is a warm welcome at any wedding!!
