I thought the Arioso Strings music set the perfect mood and setting for the Wedding Ceremony.
They were generous in the amount of time they played, and with one beautiful composition flowing into the next it provided a soothing yet expectant setting. Aunt Ann

I absolutely loved the string quartet. It really set the mood of the evening.
Brenda

The string group was lovely and set a peaceful mood for the entire ceremony. We enjoyed them. Laura

We were swept away by the music, from the first note to the end note....actually Caroline and I got a little teary-eyed with the shear beauty of the music - I say Bravo!!!! Bonnie

Delightful and I would highly recommend them
Have them come on a tour to Williston, ND concert series (that’s where they’re from!)

It was wonderful working with Arioso Strings. The owner sat down with us well before our wedding and went over our selections with us. She gave us some advise to help everything flow and I think the music turned out beautifully. She was responsive, knowledgable and great to work with!

My daughter was married at the Duke Gardens on may 31 of this year and Arioso Strings provided the ceremony and the cocktail hour music. We contracted the quartet with a trumpet for a bridal entry fanfare which was absolutely a stunning moment. I highly recommend Arioso Strings for anyone who wants to insure that their event demands the upmost in professionalism and talent. The music was amazing.

Arioso Strings did an amazing job with my ceremony music! We had a string quartet and the music was just so classic and beautiful. Everyone was talking about how beautiful our ceremony music was! Mary was so easy to work with and they made it so simple to pick out your ceremony music! It was not stressful at all! I would highly recommend Arioso Strings to Raleigh area brides!

My daughter used the string quartet and it was heavenly. She chose traditional hymns for their ceremony and Mary was more than helpful in searching for and ordering one selection that she didn't have in their huge repertoire. I am so glad we found them!

We contracted with Arioso Strings to provide rehearsal dinner music, wedding ceremony music, and cocktail hour music in April, 2014.

Working with Mary and Arioso Strings was incredible. From our first contact and all the way thru our entire wedding planning and actual day, Mary was extremely attentive, responsive, and flexible. On the day before our rehearsal dinner, I contacted Mary and asked if they had a jazz guitarists that could play at our dinner. She responded yes, sent me the contract and cost, and had everything lined up within just a short time.

We used her guitarist in addition to a string quartet with a trumpet player and they were top notch. The entire group was professional, sounded amazing, and extremely nice! Mary led us thru the planning process for selecting our music and even worked out playing for my niece to sing during the actual ceremony. We could not have asked for anything more from Mary and her musicians. I would highly recommend them and hope we will have an event for them to play at in the future. A real pleasure to have on our special day!

Scott and Mary from Arioso Strings were wonderful to work with. We enjoyed their website, lisytening to the samples of music and instruments. Everything was very professional and prompt. Scott played beautiful music and several of the guests commented on how lovely the music was. He was perfect for my daughter's wedding. I highly recommend Arioso.
