We used Alafia String Quartet’s violin duo, and it was wonderful! Aaron was superb to work with. He is really helpful and very quick about e-mail correspondence, and even helped me put a special surprise music selection in our ceremony music for my groom, who ended up being so surprised and touched by it. We’ve gotten so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony music was; Aaron did a really good job with the pacing and flow, even when our little flower girl got stage fright and ran out of the room! The day of our ceremony, it poured down rain and the ceremony was delayed about 30 minutes as it moved indoors. Aaron was very gracious and stayed the extra time to finish up our ceremony and didn’t even charge us extra. The violin duo is a really great value; the musicians are very professional and really know what they’re doing, and they have an incredible selection of music to choose from for any type of ceremony. I definitely recommend using the Alafia String Quartet (or duo, or trio!) if you’re looking for live music for your wedding.

Alda at Alafia Strings was great! We hired them for a violin duet at the ceremony, and the music truly made the entire ceremony so romantic. Everyone complimented on how beautiful the strings sounded during the ceremony, and they really added to the entire experience. Alda was willing to work with us on all the music, even adding a non-traditional recessional song! I would definitely recommend Alafia Strings to anyone!

We hired a violin duo to play at our outside garden ceremony. The musicians were professional and timely. The music was absolutely beautiful and the sound was perfect! We received several compliments on how beautiful the strings were during the ceremony. One of my most treasured memories from our wedding was walking out of the ceremony as husband and wife to the Beatles’ “All You Need is Love.” The duo also played Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons,” which was a favorite of my husband’s ninety-year old grandmother who was unable to make the trip.

Alda of Alafia String Quartet was incredibly responsive to emails, and was a delight to work with. Before we selected Alafia, my husband and I were able to listen to sound samples from the strings online and after we booked, Alda sent us a complimentary CD with many more samples! I loaded them on my iPod and was able to listen to the song selections on my commute, which made the selection process so easy!! Alda had great suggestions as to which songs would work best together, and worked with me to create a playlist that combined both classical and modern works. We were very pleased. Thanks, Alda!

I hired Alafia for my cocktail hour musicians and even though I didn't personally get to hear them, without asking people told me what a great job they did during cocktail hour. I hired a violin duo for the hour and they played a mix of contemporary and classical music that everyone, young and older, loved. My only regret is that I didn't get to hear them myself (we were with the photographer during cocktail hour). Also, I'm glad that they were a gift because I probably wouldn't have shelled out the $375 for the hour for them, but again, everyone really enjoyed the musicians.

We received so many compliments on the beautiful music for my daughter's wedding ceremony. Alafia has so many selections and we were able to listen to lots of snippets of their work and that helped immensely as she selected her music. We selected the trio for her tea garden wedding and the trio was perfect for our event.
