    Everything was perfect!

    Arioso Strings did a wonderful job with the music for our wedding ceremony. First of all, Mary Block went out of her way to find incredible musicians for us. They were absolutely fantastic! We had a lot of specific pieces that we wanted played at various points during the service, and Mary was able to accommodate all of our requests and provide helpful suggestions. She also went the extra mile by arranging and transposing two vocal pieces that we wanted performed. Mary was incredibly responsive to our many emails and talked with us on the phone on several occasions. She ensured that every single detail regarding the string and vocal music was taken care of. We could not have been happier with how our ceremony music turned out!

    Arioso Strings's reply:

    Congratulations Katherine and Mark! We were delighted to help and so glad to hear that you all enjoyed the music. You both chose some incredibly beautiful pieces and I am so glad that we could have our musicians and vocalist there to perform. It was a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful day, and I'm so glad the hurricane did not stop the moment from happening! Best wishes to you both and thank you again for using Arioso Strings!
