About Ariana:

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.

Our ensembles:
String quartet (2 violins, viola, + cello)
String trio (2 violins + cello; violin, viola, + cello)
Electric violin and guitar duet

    The perfect touch!

    Having Ariana, Sarah & Sarah play at our wedding ceremony was honestly the best decision we made! My guest are STILL talking about our ceremony! Ariana is so kind and personable & definitely helped me navigate through the crazy COVID wedding planning process. I’m recommending her to everyone I know!

    Perfection with Ariana Strings!

    Look no further than Ariana Strings for a string ensemble!!! They are perfection!! Exquisite music!!! Ariana is a masterful musician and the string quartet performed at my daughters bridal shower, on August 14 th, at Harkness Eolia mansion, helping to make it a memorable event. They performed for cocktail hour, and then continued with a 20 minute, mini concert, as guests were seated and assembled on the terrace to fully enjoy the 6 selected songs that Ariana Strings performed superbly! Countless compliments. It was an enchanted evening! Hire Ariana Strings!

When you book an Ariana Strings ensemble, 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.

    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.

  • Bridget Caviness, Justice of the Peace Wedding Officiants

    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!

  • TM Photography Wedding Photographers

    Ariana is a superb musician. Her music brings life to the event and is a warm welcome at any wedding!!
