    You've found your music team - Arioso Strings is the best!

    Mary and the Arioso Strings team are absolutely amazing. Mary is so quick at responding, and is so helpful in putting together music. We had a violin and guitar duo for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and they sounded brilliant together. They were dressed professionally and arrived perfectly on time. We even asked Mary to obtain some sheet music to a song from the Godfather, and she was able to do that quickly and the musicians executed the song flawlessly, much to my new husband's delight. We had so many compliments from the guests on the music! Huge thanks to Mary and Arioso Strings for making our wedding day unforgettable.

    WONDERFUL.... maybe need amplification?

    would absolutely recommend them : excellent quality of music and communication.
    one note:
    if they could be amplified outdoors when there are more than 50-75 attendees, would be nice: very difficult to hear with 200 in courtyard unless you were within 15 feet of them

    Arioso Strings's reply:

    Hi Edward, Thank you for your kind words and the information on the setting. That area of the venue can be loud during a large cocktail hour. I know the group enjoyed playing and it sounds like it was quite a joyful crowd! Best wishes to the happy couple, please give them my warmest wishes.

    Amazing Wedding Music

    Craig and Luciano played guitar and violin at our daughters wedding. They were amazing and so kind. We received so many compliments on the wedding music. Mary was very helpful and prompt with responses when we had a question. The site is very easy to navigate to help you choose the perfect music. They were happy to learn new songs that we requested. It was all beautiful and just like we had imagined. Thank you so much and we hope to use you again in the future!

Our violin/guitar duo is amazing and I am glad we could all help and make the day of your dreams! Best wishes to the happy couple and thank you for using Arioso Strings!
