Having a String Quartet play as I walked down the aisle was a dream come true. They performed throughout my wedding ceremony, filling the space with romantic and whimsical melodies. After researching and talking to a few vendors, I knew I had a winner with Alexandra & Ensembles. They have such perfect harmony. For the quality of service and the price, it can't be beat! Highly recommend using their services.
Alexandra and her musicians are absolutely incredible. Alexandra just played at our wedding last weekend with a quartet and the performance was well beyond our expectations. They play both the classics as well as string versions of current pop music EXTREMELY well. They blew us and our guests away. We could not recommend them more highly !!!!!
We just had our wedding yesterday and we were VERY impressed with these lovely musicians! They were on time, prepared, and professional. They have a fabulous selection of music and were very easy to book. We did the Cello and Violin combo, and it was airy, beautiful & romantic! We will absolutely recommend them to friends and family.
They were very responsive and professional in planning the songs and strategy for our wedding. And they even learned a new song for us. On our wedding day, they were even earlier expected, dressed professionally, and played very well. Our guests were impressed and their presence truly helped us create the atmosphere that we were going for. Their music was beautiful and we were more than happy to walk down the aisle while they were performing. We are recommending them to everyone.
We hired Alexandra & Ensembles for our ceremony and cocktail hour music for our wedding last month, and they are a definite must hire if you are looking for live strings for your event! They were very responsive and have an unbelievable variety of music that they can do, extremely talented people. My guests were so impressed that they could seamlessly switch from classical to the game of thrones theme song! Hiring their strings duo was a definite highlight of the day :)
I am so glad that I found Alexandra and her team! My husband and I were back and forth on if we should hire live music or just play a recording for our ceremony. One I spoke with Alexandra and listened to some of her recordings I was sold. The live music took our venue to the next level and our guests enjoyed hearing songs that they recognized.
Alexandra and her team were incredibly easy to book with and I could not recommend her services enough for your special day. Thanks again guys!

Loved!! Hired cellist (Alexandra) and pianist for our wedding ceremony back in January. It was SUCH a nice touch, simply beautiful. They were on time and did such a wonderful job, even played my request "FloRida, Good Feeling" as our recessional song. Highly recommend for a classy touch =)
We selected Alexandra from the website because of the reviews and she fit in our budget. We were so glad we did. She is very flexible because we weren't certain of the exact ceremony time in Central Park. The music was lovely and she let us select the songs and instruments we wanted. She was beyond our expectations!
Alexandra and her fellow musicians were amazing! We hired Alexandra to play cello and she brought two violinists to complete the string trio. They played for our ceremony and our cocktail hour reception. The music sounded beautiful and they were incredibly professional. Alexandra was very quick to respond to my initial inquiries and to answer all of my questions. She has an extensive list of songs she performs and she agreed to play all the songs I requested. On the day of the wedding, it rained in the morning so they could no longer set up outdoors. They were very flexible and accommodating and everything worked out beautifully. I highly recommend Alexandra and her team!
Alexandra & Ensembles were absolutely incredible! They played at the cocktail hour of our wedding in September, and were just amazing. The music was beautiful, and the team was absolutely top-notch professional. We received feedback from many of the wedding guests that the music was a phenomenal addition to cocktail hour. We would hire Alexandra & Ensembles again in a second for our next big event! Thanks again Alexandra & Ensembles!!
Alexandra & Ensembles made our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour unforgettable! Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful!!!
Alexandra was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a special song request for our ceremony since my husband is Scottish and she made it happen for us. We received so many compliments on her music. Do yourself a favor and don't look any further- book Alexandra!!
Amazing! I loved having Alexandra play at my wedding. I couldn't have been happier with the quality, look, and feel they provided on our special day.
Alexandra and her quartet were fantastic! I played the violin through college and it was really important to me to have a really good string quartet that could play both modern and classical music. They executed it all so well! All of the guests were really getting into it, especially when familiar songs like the game of thrones theme song came on. Alexandra is also super responsive and easy to work with. We were so thankful to have them play at our wedding!
Alexandra and her pianist did a phenomenal job providing beautiful music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Alexandra was able to grant our wishes by playing current hits such as Ed Sheeran and Adele. Thank you so much for your wonderful talents and making our wedding so memorable!

I was lucky enough to have found Alexandra on wedding wire. My sister is obsessed with the cello and she convinced me to hire one early on in wedding planning, and I absolutely do not regret it! Alexandra was so patient with me, especially with my indecisiveness about song selections (we worked it out perfectly!) Alexandra and our piano player were perfect together! I wish I stayed around during cocktail hour to hear what other songs they played, but our guests informed me and my husband that they were absolutely amazing. I 100% recommend Alexandra & Ensembles for their services, you will not regret it.
Alexandra was a dream to work with. She responds right away, is accommodating and reliable. She was able to arrange a song that meant a lot to my husband and I that was not in her listed repertoire. She is incredibly talented - the music sounded beautiful!
Alexandra & Ensembles were the perfect duo for our wedding! Their performance brought so much happiness and elegance to our ceremony. I already recommended their services to several friends, and recommend their services to anyone looking for QUALITY musicians to play their wedding!!!! Couldn't be happier to have had them play!
I hired Alexandra and 2 other violinist from her company for my wedding, it was the best investment! Her prices are very fair for the phenomenal quality you receive. She responded to all of my emails promptly and professionally, every bride's dream! The team was punctual and played so beautifully, I feel so blessed having had them be a part of my big day. Thank you Alexandra soo much!!!
Alexandra is such a talented and kind individual who provides the highest quality service from beginning to end. She was responsive and easy to work with beforehand, took our requests into consideration, and did an amazing job on the day of. After seeing her sample videos I wanted her and only her for the perfect ambiance for our wedding weekend--- and I have no regrets! She is wonderful!
Alexandra was simply amazing! We had her play at our ceremony and at our cocktail hour. We got married at a church and she worked with the church's piano player to put together a great ceremony. She arrived 45 minutes early to practice with him so that they would be in sync. That is just amazing! She goes above and beyond and it doesn't go unnoticed. We got so many compliments on our ceremony and cocktail and a lot had to do with her. Can't say enough, if you want a Cello at your wedding choose Alexandra!!!
We hired a cello/violin duo for our church wedding last month and are SO happy we did. The Catholic church only allows prelude music, processional and recessional to be played by outside musicians but I wish we could have had more! Alexandra made the process incredibly easy - she was very responsive, answered all of our questions, and had no problem playing the music we asked for. One of our songs was pretty standard I think but I'm fairly certain they had to learn the other one for my processional and it was better than I could have ever hoped for. The duo also had to sit up in the 'balcony' area with the church organist so I'm not even sure they could see us but they never missed a cue! Everything was seamless. Alexandra always seemed happy to speak with us over email and couldn't have been nicer on the day of the wedding. This was one of the few vendors we feel was well worth the (very reasonable) cost. We are thrilled with our choice and would highly recommend Alexandra!
I book Alexandra & Ensembles as a trio (cellist, violinist, and pianist) for my wedding ceremony on 1/7/17. Due to a snow storm, the limo delayed the bridal party's arrival. Luckily, the trio kept my guests entertained while waiting. They arrived early (even in inclement weather), played beautifully, looked professional, and seamlessly stayed beyond the booked time frame (the overtime cost was completely worth it). I am still receiving compliments on the talented musicians who made my ceremony timeless.
My husband and I got married last month and we hired Alexandra and Cello NYC to do our ceremony music. We knew live music could be very hit or miss at weddings, so we wanted to be very careful in our selection. I'm happy to say we definitely made the right choice! Alexandra and her accompanying pianist were on time, dressed professionally, and very obviously prepared. They played beautifully, and we received multiple compliments on their music, from our peers and our parents' friends alike! Everybody loved the music!
It was easy to make everyone happy with the wide variety of songs she offers!
Alexandra NYC Cellist & Ensembles were wonderful! Great and easy to communicate with! They played The Rains of Castamere and GoT theme song for our ceremony (as well as many others). Our guests complimented their playing and said that it was a classy touch to our wedding as well as also fun figuring out which songs they were playing! A great mix of classical with new songs! I would recommend them to any friends and family who are planning a wedding! Thank you!!
