Atlantic Strings performed during my wedding ceremony & cocktail hour. They were amazing. I dealt with Nina and she always responded quickly to my questions or requests and is very easy to work with. She had great suggestions on music selections and was very friendly.

I would highly recommend Atlantic Strings to anyone looking for string music. They are reasonably priced and extremely accommodating. I want to thank them for playing so beautifully during my wedding.

I couldn't have asked for better ceremony musicians! I contacted Nina about a violin duo for my outdoor wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. She responded very quickly, and I found her to be very friendly, organized, and accommodating. I wasn't quite sure about what accompanying instrument I wanted and she asked me about our personalities, and what type of music we wanted. She was able to recommend that we do a violin/guitar duo, and I couldn't have been happier. They even took my requests to classically play a couple of rock songs and they were BEAUTIFUL! I would absolutely recommend Atlantic Strings to any couple planning their wedding!

As a bride and professional violinist, our ceremony was the most important part of our day. I wanted the music to be memorable and amazing. We chose Atlantic Strings because I've known Nina and Chris over the last 15 years as friends and colleagues. They've always been THE top musicians, very talented, extremely organized and professional. In addition to how great they sound, they are also friendly and kind. This ensemble is the ensemble professional musicians choose to perform at their weddings! This says it all!

Atlantic Strings are very talented musicians and lovely to work with! Nina, our main contact, was so professional, responsive, and kind throughout the entire planning process. Atlantic Strings did a beautiful job playing music during our ceremony and cocktail hour. They even learned Love and Some Verses (from Iron and Wine) for our processional at our request , and it was spot on. Atlantic Strings set the perfect tone for our outdoor, garden party wedding and we (and our guests) highly, highly recommend them!!

As I was planning my wedding, there were two things I came to value above all else when it came to working with vendors 1. Professionalism and 2. Quality. Atlantic Strings absolutely nailed it on both.

Both during the wedding and since I've had multiple people ask me about the musicians and complimenting the high quality of their playing. It truly was spectacular and it was clear very quickly just how talented of a group they are. They also helped us decide whether we wanted an organ or just the quartet during the church service, ultimately we went with the quartet and it was a wonderful decision for us.

In addition to their playing, they were extremely professional and helpful. They provided recommendations for songs based on our style preferences and made sure everything ran smoothly day of. I would absolutely recommend Atlantic Strings to anyone who is looking for a string quartet to play at their wedding. You will not be disappointed!!

I can’t say enough good things about Atlantic Strings. My fiancée and I hired them for our March 2013 wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour and they were phenomenal! First the basics, they showed up on time, dressed professionally, played impeccably, hit all the right cues and delivered on all of their promises. We received so many compliments on the strings both during the ceremony and the cocktail hour (they even played Journey at our request)- I can’t recommend hiring them enough. I spoke with numerous string vendors prior to picking Atlantic Strings, and what stood out for me with Atlantic Strings was the way Nina took the time to explain everything to me and answer all of my questions. I felt like I could trust her and she would be an easy vendor to work with- which was definitely true, I didn’t have to stress out about them in the least. Nina was super helpful from the start and provided good advice as I was picking out the music for the ceremony- and took the time to explain why she made the suggestions that she did. I highly recommend Atlantic Strings to all brides (one of my friends is even using them for her wedding this coming October).

The musical talent and professionalism of Atlantic Strings is superb and I highly recommend them! We used Atlantic Strings for our wedding ceremony and they played beautiful music. After a lot of research on string quartets for our wedding ceremony we came across Atlantic Strings and we were blown away by their versatility and professionalism. They played a beautiful mix of poppy and traditional music for us as our guests arrived, through to our processional and as our guests departed. We knew we wanted a string quartet as we love the string sound, but were looking for a mix of traditional and non-traditional wedding music and Nina provided outstanding suggestions! Atlantic Strings were awesome, and they were a wonderful addition to our wedding ceremony.

We used Atlantic Strings for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. Nina Bishop Nunn was fantastic to work with and she was very responsive to all the questions we had. We wanted a specific song for our wedding ceremony that had to be learned and they did an amazing job! We received a lot of compliments from our guests and we highly recommend them!

I was completely wowed by Atlantic Strings! We signed with Nina early in our wedding planning process and then a few weeks before the wedding we changed our direction. Nina and Atlantic Strings were extremely accomodating and were so easy to work with. They learned new songs for us and their performance at our ceremony and cocktail hour was spectacular. Nina totally got the feel/mood we were going for and went above and beyond to do everything we asked for. My husband's favorite song is Kids by MGMT and Atlantic Strings played it for him as he walked out ... it was awesome!

Atlantic Strings set the tone for our daughter's wedding. Many guests commented on the beauty and quality of the music. I don't think the guests knew we were running a little late since they were enjoying the music. The trio is also wonderful about working with you to select the music that will make your day personal and special. We would strongly recommend Atlantic Strings!

We are so thankful that we had Atlantic Strings as part of our big day. Nina from the get go was so above and beyond responsive and intuitive to our wants and needs for ceremony music. She was full of great suggestions and was intent on making sure we had the perfect song line-up for our style and tastes (where are classical to Ray Lamontagne!) Day of, our String Trio was so great to work with, all super friendly and extremely talented musicians. Our guests raved about them for the remainder of the night! Thank you to Nina and colleagues for making our ceremony music something to fondly think back on:) So happy we had video to capture it!

I absolutely loved having Atlantic Strings musicians at our wedding ceremony and reception. We planned our wedding in four weeks and the wedding ceremony and reception were both held at the Four Seasons Boston. Nina and her team were so professional and responsive. With only a four week lead time for planning, the pressure was on--and they delivered!! Even with short notice Nina was able to add some non-traditional pieces to our music line up. She even got us some of our favorite Kenny Chesney songs for strings!

The planning process was seamless, and the music was absolutely beautiful. We were so happy with the way everything turned out and the mix of music that we had on our special day. Atlantic Strings really catered to our needs and special requests and I would recommend them to anyone.

Nina form Atlantic Strings, is the directory and super friendly. Since our schedules were super packed she set up a Skype call with us during the holidays to go over details for our ceremony.

We knew we wanted a solo cellist...but that was about it. She helped suggest songs and gave us time to plan on our own as well.

One of the big speed bumps in planning the wedding was when weeks before the wedding my Catholic Church wrote me to say that the 'instrumental' music I had selected was not 'appropriate' for mass. Needless to say I was beyond upset. I had really wanted some more modern up beat music played for the recession...but the church would not budge. Nina was super calming and totally understanding of the terribly last min. change. She helped me figure out some other 'church acceptable' pieces to use that were still up beat and worked with my original intent.

Since I didn't get to the church till the music was already playing, I was happily pleased that it sounded just as I had imagined. Beautiful. The solo cellist filled the tiny church with beautiful music that set the mood for a very intimate ceremony.

Atlantic Strings has lots of different ensembles (cello, violin, viola..etc), so check out their site..you can even listen to music samples.

My wife Cara and I felt like we hit the jackpot when we found Nina and The Atlantic Strings musicians!!! We had a trio of violin, viola, and upright bass for our ceremony fore and after. They harmoniously sauntered through some timeless classics of jazz, soul, and R&B that sounded perfect in our venue. Throughout our entire working relationship with Atlantic Strings they were extremely professional, punctual, and flexible to accommodate our requests. I highly recommend them for any affair where string musicians are needed! Thank you so much!

I don't know where to begin in reviewing Atlantic Strings. They were absolutely fantastic and I would recommend them to ANYONE looking for a professional and highly talented musical ensemble for their wedding!

My now-husband and I planned our wedding in Chapel Hill, North Carolina from our current home in New York City while working full time and juggling far too many things at once. That said I was so grateful to have Atlantic Strings come into the picture. They not only had a full repertoire of music that we liked, but they were also able to suggest some wonderful options for us (that we ended up using and LOVING!)

From the second we spoke on the phone about the theme/tone of our wedding, I knew they "got it" and they pulled together a wonderful selection of songs with some input from us but also some excellent decisions of their own.

The day of our wedding was sunny and beautiful but the temperature decided to drop 20 degrees from the day before and a wind came out of nowhere (ah, North Carolina!). Of course, we had everything set up outside and despite the elements we decided to go ahead with the ceremony outdoors. Not to worry! Atlantic Strings played a 30 minute prelude in the cold wind as if it was nothing at all! It was incredible how professional they were. These guys could play through ANYTHING!

Looking back, I am so happy to have dealt with a group so organized, helpful and friendly. You don't really realize how important this is until you hear horror stories about other people's weddings. Everyone loved the music at out wedding and several people asked for contact information for the musicians after the fact.

If you are considering using Atlantic Strings for your big day, DO! And know that you will be in wonderful hands. Professionalism, talent, courtesy, and wit abound with these guys--you will love them as much as we did, I guarantee it.

Atlantic Strings proved to be a highly professional group of musicians who were able to accomodate our every request. The performance was flawless - they played Pachelbel's Cannon and the Wagner Wedding March - and timing during the outdoor ceremony was great.

All the members were dressed as requested, showed up on time, and were invisible except for their beautiful music. We would highly recommend their services to any couple planning their wedding.

What separates them is their professionalism. I never had to worry that they wouldn’t be at the right place, at the right time, ready to perform. That is key. As a bride, you have many, many balls in the air on your wedding day to consider. With Atlantic Strings, I knew they would be punctual, secure, properly dressed and on cue. All of that goes without saying that their performance was perfection! I spoke with them about the music my fiancé and I wanted and the timings and that was it. They know the drill! Our families were completely blown away by them! I received SO many complements from our guests. Their music is elegant and moving and they were truly inspirational on such an important day to us. I must add how they went above and beyond: I wanted my 6 year old cousin, who is studying the violin, to accompany them for “Here Comes the Bride.” Not only did they not question my crazy idea – but they embraced it. They met with my cousin ahead of the date and got him comfortable with the music and the plan. Everything went off without a hitch and I am truly grateful! I cannot give them a higher recommendation. Make an easy choice for your musical needs for your event and hire Atlantic Strings.

Nina and Atlantic Strings were wonderful to work with and sounded beautiful at our wedding ceremony! We ended up having a string trio to save a little bit on cost (vs. the quartet) but the sound filled our church very nicely. Nine was VERY responsive to email when I had questions or changes in our program, and she was VERY flexible. We changed our songs a few times to comply with our church's requirements, and she was very understanding of all the changes. We even had them learn a song especially for us, that we were then told by our priest that we couldn't use in our ceremony, and Nina was very understanding. Also, we wanted our cousin/aunts to sing a few songs at our ceremony and Atlantic Strings was very open to doing this and even reached out to our cousin directly to coordinate. They rehearsed together the day of the wedding and everything sounded beautiful! The one thing I do want to mention is I know Nina/Atlantic Strings is not super familiar with the format/song requirements of a catholic mass wedding, so song selection was a bit more challenging for me and it was helpful to have someone (our cousin), who could provide them with the right cues to play during the mass. However, I think they are quickly gaining experience in this area and knowing this now, I am still extremely happy that we selected Atlantic Strings to play at our ceremony. We got so many compliments on how beautiful our ceremony was and they definitely contributed to that and made the ceremony very memorable for us. Thank you again!

Atlantic Strings responded with the following comments:

Thank you Kristen! Cues are an essential part of nearly every wedding, and although certain sections are obvious, we have found that cues are the best way to be sure that we play at exactly the right moment. Priests and officiants often do things a certain way and we always want to avoid interrupting or preempting them.

Adding live ceremony music makes a huge difference! I decided on a violin and a cell, however they have almost every musician possible. They played my ceremony and my cocktail hour! It was a wonderful touch. Although, I don't remember hearing it when I was walking down the aisle (emotions) I got to hear them again through my video and am so happy I decided on using them!

The violinist was in touch with me through the whole process and catered to my desires. They played every song I requested with no hesitation. She took a moment to introduce herself to me at the end of the cocktail hour!

Great service and very professional!
