About Ariana Strings

Ariana Strings brings world-class musicians from the concert stage to your wedding day. Our ensembles feature professional symphony musicians performing all the hits from 1680 - 2019: traditional classical music, today's Top 100, classic rock, Broadway & Disney favorites, jazz, and pop music. Our expert team will not only bring the highest level of professionalism as performers, but we will go above and beyond for your special day. We love what we do and you will hear it in our music. We put the class in classical.

About Our Musicians:

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

    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!

    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!
