I'm so glad we could play! It was an upbeat, contemporary ceremony and cocktail hour. We especially enjoyed performing a contemporary oriented ceremony with pieces from Coldplay, the movie Emma, Hoppopolla and Starlight by Muse. They worked beautifully and I'm glad we could put together music that was something your daughter loved!

My husband and I hired Arioso Strings to play the ceremony music for our wedding in March and loved working with them! Arioso Strings worked with us to create and compose a custom music piece for our exit that was the fight song from our undergraduate alma mater. They have an extensive music list that you can choose from in addition to the custom piece we requested. I would highly recommend hiring Arioso Strings!

Our daughter was married at Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC on 3/4/17. Arioso Strings was on Fearrington's preferred list of music vendors and upon our first contact with Mary Block via phone and email, we could definitely understand why!
Mary is incredibly clear and organized in her explaining of the contract and the various ceremony music that they are able to provide. She was very patient and supportive to us wedding planning/music newbies!! We contracted for her quartet of musicians and they were simply perfect in presentation and musical talent! She offers a wide variety of song selections from classical to modern and various combinations/numbers of musicians to suit any individual/venue needs. The entire wedding party, family and friends remarked on how perfect and wonderful their music was for the occasion. Add to all this, that her fee is definitely very reasonable and what we received was worth waay more than we paid!

We really wanted our ceremony to be special and personalized and thought long and hard about music. We had two friends we wanted to lead 1-2 songs in the ceremony for us but we wanted a separate string group to do the processional, interlude, recessional music. This group was wonderful! They spoke with us on the phone to give guidance about our song selection and the feel that we wanted for our ceremony. I never had to think twice about them day of - they were on time, provided the most beautiful music that our guests loved and was perfect for what we wanted adding class and sweetness to our ceremony. The music was perfect and beautiful and they were incredibly easy and professional to work with.

Alexandria, your wedding was gorgeous!! It was a real treat to accompany your sister in law on Bel Piacere by Handel. I will now put that on our MUST list! Her singing was so beautiful and it was a treat to accompany such a fine vocalist. We also had fun adding Sixpence Non the Richer's "Kiss Me". That was really fun to play! You guys were wonderful and even though we had a visit from hurricane Matthew, Fearrington and Erin McLean Events made sure all went off without a hitch. Congratulations and best wishes to you both!
