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!

I absolutely loved working with Mary and Arioso Strings. They allowed us to completely customize our music (and even let me change my mind several times!). I added some songs that weren't in their repertoire originally, and they even played for my husband's sister who sang during the ceremony. They were perfect!

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!

Wow! What an amazing performance for our ceremony and cocktail hour! We went with the violin-guitar duo and they were amazing. I had friends asking if they could tip the musicians because they were so amazing (we, of course, took care of that). They were personable and easy to work with both during the planning process and on the big day. I am so pleased that we spent the extra money for live music for part of our special day, and even more thrilled that we decided to go with Arioso Strings!

Congratulations Erika! Our Violin/Guitar Duo really enjoyed playing and Snipes Farm was a wonderful setting for the day! I'm glad I could be a part of planning the music. It was great to work with you both on such a special time and to know that you, your family and your guests enjoyed the day! Best wishes for a wonderful fall and thank you for using Arioso Strings!

Arioso Strings deserves 5/5 stars for the service they provided on our wedding day! It was a pleasure to work with Mary Block in getting our music organized and perfect for our big day. She was kind, knowledgeable, and timely in all aspects. We were married at Fearrington Village - and if you are getting married at Fearrington - you MUST use Arioso. They play at Fearrington for weddings and other events frequently, and in my opinion, their knowledge of the venue as a whole as it pertains to music is priceless.

My husband and I got married on July 30, 2016 at The Cotton Room in Durham, NC. Arioso Strings performed the prelude, processional and recessional music, and it was simply magical. Our guests were blown away by the talent and professionalism of our string quartet and could not stop talking about the beautifully performed music days after our event. The music samples provided on their website are beautiful but do not fully capture the the talent of the musicians - they are amazing! Mary was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was responsive and even helped me select the song I would walk down the aisle to, which was very special. If you are still looking for that important and final touch to your wedding ceremony, I would highly recommend hiring Arioso Strings to perform on your special day!

Thank you so much to Mary and the team at Arioso. Mary is so incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and I when I wasn't sure what version of "Somewhere over the Rainbow" I wanted the guitarist to play, she sent me links and even connected me with him so I could chat. He did a great job as well! My dad (who is a musician) was very impressed.

Thank you so much Arioso! Hope to work with y'all again soon. xox Nicole & Rob
