Bella Musica made my wedding ceremony unforgettable! Sue made the entire process of booking and choosing music so easy and was so helpful with any questions or requests I had. The cello and violin duo that played during my ceremony were absolutely amazing and even learned a specific song that I had requested to play as my bridal party went down the aisle. As soon as I heard them playing the song it made my eyes tear up... it was absolutely beautiful. I had compliments throughout the night about how lovely the music was and I really could not have found a better vendor to work with. The price was very affordable and I would definitely recommend Bella Musica to anyone looking for a string ensemble at their wedding or event. It truly was the best day I could ever ask for and the music helped make it the perfect day!

Bella Musica gave us a phenomenal performance at our wedding. They showed up early, looked presentable, and were all well rehearsed. Their timing was perfect, and all of the songs we requested were played in the correct order, and sounded wonderful. They really added a beautiful ambiance to our ceremony. I would also like to add that we requested a song by Sigur Ros that they never played before. They located the sheet music, and played the song perfectly. We were so impressed and pleased, and would love to work with them again.

Bella Musica provided music at the church for my ceremony and I could not be happier! Sue was extremely easy to work with and very helpful. I came to her with a specific version of a song for my walk down the aisle and it was performed beautifully! For the rest of the music selections, she was very helpful in making suggestions. I received many compliments from our guests and even my Pastor mentioned how much he enjoyed working with them the day-of. Sue, from the bottom of my heart - thank you! I am so happy that you were part of my wedding day!

As the mother of the groom at our son's wedding, selecting quality live music for the ceremony was a priority for me. I personally knew some of the musicians of the Bella Musica String Ensamble, and trusted their professionalism and expert symphony level talent from them previously playing at our daughter's outdoor wedding. Belle Musica String Ensamble is extremely musically accomplished. They flawlessly performed and combined standard and modern repertoire with absolute beauty and skill that impressed so very many of the guests, bride, and groom! With sincere gratitude, we thank you so much for your suggestions and the way you created an atmosphere for all of our guests and the bride and groom to remember. We highly recommend you with a rating of 5 in each category. Mr and Mrs Campbell

Bella Musica String Ensembles was such a wonderful addition to my wedding day. I have always dreamed of having a string quartet at my wedding, and I'm so glad it was this one. Susan went above and beyond to make sure everything was just how my husband and I wanted it, telling us we could ask for as many or as few specific songs as we wanted and to take our time making our decision, a big relief considering how our ceremony changed about 5 times prior to the wedding day! They were able to play all the songs I wanted which included Elton John's Can You Feel the Love Tonight (Processional), Craig Armstrong's Portuguese Love Theme (Seating of the Mothers), Canon in D for the bride's entrance, and Jason Mraz's Lucky for our recessional. What a great group to work with and hear perform!

I was recommended Bella Musica by the place I booked my reception at. I'm so glad they gave me their name because I was at my wit's end trying to find a string quartet for a fair price on the date that I wanted. Susan, my contact through everything, couldn't have been any more helpful. I had trouble picking out the music and she basically helped me pick every piece. She was very patient with me and quick to email or call me back every time. All of my family and friends told me how wonderful they sounded before and during the wedding. I will be recommending them in the future for sure!

Bella Musica was an absolute joy to work with! Susan was fantastic at helping me plan the music and kept me sane when I was dealing with a difficult point of contact from the Church. I would recommend Bella Musica to everyone! Their sound was great and they have a very wide list of songs. Susan was very flexible with our ceremony and really truly listened to what we wanted. I will certainly be booking them again if I need a quartet at any point in time.

I love Bella musica. I always knew I wanted a string ensemble for my wedding ceremony , and when I started shopping, i found that the pricing was higher than I expected. I had called and listened to about 20 ensembles before getting a call back from Sue . Based on our phone convo alone, I knew she was exactly the perfect fit. She had all the answers! From then on, she was easy to communicate with , taking time to talk to me anytime I needed. She planned the ceremony music with me and was encouraging about all my choices. MY only regret is that it all went by so quickly I didn't even get to talk to her In person that day! But I heard her! They did a beautiful job, the song was playing exactly as I imagined it when I walked down the aisle, I can't wait to hear it again on the video!

I cannot say enough about Sue and Bella Musica! So I knew I wanted strings for my ceremony - but the vendors I contacted (some through the venue, some through my own research) were crazy expensive and didn't really seem all that excited about my wedding. And then I found Sue. Not only was she amazingly responsive to my inquiry, but in my first conversation with her, I felt like she was truly excited to play at my wedding. She was very knowledgeable in helping me decide what I actually wanted (strings, how many, what instruments etc) and was open to any ideas I had (like having them play the "Hallelujah Chorus" as the recessional - totally funny and she loved it!) Sue is a total value for the price she charges and a great woman to work with. I give her a 100% endorsement!!!!!

Bella Musica Strings provided beautiful ceremony music for my October wedding. I worked closely with Susan who gave wonderful suggestions for prelude and recessional music and she coordinated with our organist, who was also a family member. Together with organist Uncle Joe, Bella Musica Strings timed the processional music (A Thousand Years) perfectly and the build up of the song happened EXACTLY when my father and I appeared at the doors to the church. My guests told me my entrance was breathtaking and that the music was tasteful and added an elegance and emotion to the ceremony that would not have been there without Bella Musica Strings. I also think it was wonderful that Bella Musica worked directly with our Uncle so I never needed to be a middle man between the musicians. One less thing for me to worry about! They are truly talented musicians!

Sue and her team were all we wanted and more! She is kind, professional, flexible and her beautiful music really took our ceremony to a different level of class and sophistication. She took all our requests and played them perfectly, and were we asked for suggestions she had many great songs. We received compliments all night on how amazing it was to have the strings playing in the church, and really made our special day even more special. Even before we signed a contract she mailed me a CD of the songs I wanted to hear so I could sample what it would sound like. We had a Cantor (singer) and an organist in the church as part of the ceremony, and Sue and her team worked with them so that everything was seamless and wonderful. I cannot recommend Sue McDevitt enough - if you want musicians for your event she is the one to call! If you are unsure but thinking about wanting live musicians for your event, I would def recommend giving her a call to discuss her services, and I'm sure she will win you over and you'll make the right decision and book her! I am so glad I did!

The Bella Musica String Ensemble was such a pleasure to work with. We had an incredibly positive experience with them from start to finish. Our contact, Sue, was professional and always responded within hours of asking any questions. She helped us select music for our processional and was always open to our choices, while also suggesting songs that would be great. We were most pleased with the result. She even came to our rehearsal to double check on logistics and introduce herself before the wedding. The day of, we did not have to worry about anything. The group arrived early, performed flawlessly, and all of our guests were impressed. In sum, Bella Musica is a reliable vendor, and you won't be disappointed by working with them.

Last month I got married and my wedding ceremony was unforgettable according to all my guests. I had a very specific vision if how I wanted my bridal and myself to walk down the aisle. I knew I wanted to walk to the same song as them and I wanted it to be your unexpected entrance song. I chose "A thousand Years" by Christina Perri and wanted it done instrumental. Having it played by a dj wasn't going to make the moment magically. I searched for many string quartets and either they weren't very professional or they couldn't be all there or even attempt to play this song for me. I heard Bella Musica playing at the Marriott bridal show and knew right away the played beautiful and I wanted them. They were more than friendly and willing to do anything I wanted. She responded promptly to every email, she even messaged me at my one month from my wedding point to congratulate me on the last big countdown until the wedding. I wanted the song to be played by the piano and cello and she made it happen and even had the other string come into play throughout the song for the build up of my entrance. The song took your breath away and the way they played it was exactly how I visioned it for so long. She hd wonderful suggestions for the prelude songs for us as well and even our exit song she suggested to match my unique and untraditional personality. I work in the wedding business myself so I know great business when I see it. They are truly the best. I would highly recommend them to every bride traditional or untraditional like myself. They will make your ceremony feel like the moment you always dreamt off and the moment the doors enter to you will feel like magic. Thank you so much Susan and team for all your amazing talents. I wish everyday I could go bAck and relive that entrance because it was just so special for me and I have you to thank!

Best,
Angela Stewart Hess

Bella Musica sounds exactly as their name implies, beautiful music! We worked very closely with Crystal and she was incredibly helpful! Any questions we had, she was always there to respond and guide us through the whole process. After the wedding, we received so many compliments on our string quartet (for both the ceremony and the cocktail hour! Future brides: if you are looking for incredibly talented musicians to play on your wedding day, look no further; you found them!

While the weather the day of our daughter's outdoor wedding was not optimal, 'Bella Musica' musicians were willing to endure a short delay and play under less than optimal conditions so we could have the wedding of her dreams. The music was absolutely perfect for our occasion, adding the perfect compliment to our ceremony. Susan handled all of the details of the music for the ceremony seamlessly and gave us one less thing to worry about. They were professional and extremely talented. We could not recommend her and her musicians more highly!

Sue McDevitt and her accompanying string quartet were absolutely amazing! Not only were they incredibly responsive, they were also very insightful when assisting us with our music selections. Bella Musica truly made our ceremony special and the strings set a very intimate, classic, and peaceful ambiance. I highly recommend Bella Musica for your musical needs! Weddings, Cocktail & Dinner Parties... whatever the occasion is, they will accommodate and perform with the utmost quality.

Bella Musica was such a pleasure to work with for my wedding prelude/postlude and cocktail hour music. They were very flexible with the Catholic Church music requirements/restrictions. Sue McDevitt was my main contact- she very responsive (answered questions and emails same day). I would highly recommend... what a class act group!
