The Fine Arts Ensemble was an excellent choice for our ceremony and cocktail hour. We hired a cellist and a violinist and the two worked well to create a beautiful ambience for our wedding. They played our requested songs very well and even obliged and learned a song so that my husband could enter to his favorite song. The fee for learning said song was small and they did it flawlessly, with only a week to learn it. We highly recommend the Fine Arts Ensemble.

Dimitri is the greatest. We had no idea what kind of music to pick and we were in a crunch for time and Dimitri came through for us. He sent over recommended music options and let us adjust accordingly. He also was low on musicians for our wedding date but within an hour got back in touch with us and got us the musicians we wanted. The music was beautiful and the musicians were nicely dressed. Definitely added a great touch :)

We were very confident they would provide the music in the way we wanted. We were very pleased with the music as well as the presentation. As Mother of the Bride I can say you will not go wrong using their services for any size wedding. We had a little over 250 guests and all were impressed!!!

Fine Arts Ensemble was wonderful to work with! Dimitri was very accommodating in helping us organize a ceremony music program that encapsulated our personalities and the feel of our wedding. Their proposal came with a CD of various tracks that showcased their choices of instrument groups and popular music suggestions. It made planning for the ceremony music very easy! The musicians were talented and it added a beautiful ambiance to my outside ceremony. I would recommend them to anyone!

From start to finish Dimitri was extremely professional in planning the music for my daughter's wedding. He was very helpful and promptly returned emails and phone calls.
Irina, the pianist and Dimitri's wife, prepared our vocalists very well in a one hour rehearsal at the church before our wedding rehearsal. The additional fee for this was well worth it!
The wedding day music was amazingly beautiful! I felt like I was at a symphony performance! The violin, trumpet, cello, and piano musicians were extremely talented!
I cannot imagine my daughter's wedding ceremony without Fine Arts Ensemble. Beautiful music is such a big part of the enjoyment of the ceremony. I can't wait to receive our wedding video so I can hear the music again!
I would highly recommend Fine Arts Ensemble to anyone planning a special event. I look forward to calling upon them in the future!

Dimitri's Fine Arts Ensemble for my son's wedding was a 4 piece ensemble that worked very well with our own soloist. Dimitri stayed in touch with planning, making wonderful suggestions along the way, was prompt and professional. There is nothing like the addition of a trumpet, violin and cello to the usual piano/organ wedding music! When you have so much on your mind and a case of nerves, you can TOTALLY rely on Fine Arts Ensemble for a professional performance.

Dimitri,

I want to let you know how much I appreciate all your help in coordinating our Second-line Wedding Parade. I very much appreciate your patience with us, with the continuous changing of time and location, and us having to wait till the last minute to secure the legality portion of the parade.

My husband was very apprehensive about it at first, and we almost cancelled, because he thought Bourbon Street would be too crowed at the time and day we had it scheduled. My husband has been visiting The French Quarter of New Orleans every year for 15 years, so he knows all to well how crowded Bourbon Street can be. But to our surprise, they cleared all of Bourbon Street for us for 9 blocks!! My husband and I, our friends, and family couldn't believe it!! Let alone on a Saturday night, but also on a Holiday weekend!!

The police officers and band members we're on-time, very professional, very nice, as well as very talented. They took the initiative to try and play some songs they thought we may know, so we could sing along. It was amusing because they played a Hank Williams song, I guess because we were wearing cowboy hats and boots. We had a blast walking down Bourbon Street with them. The whole 9 blocks everyone was taking pictures and video of us. The next couple of days we felt like celebrities for the weekend. We had people recognized us from the Wedding Parade and stop to congratulate us on our marriage. This was a very memorable experience we will never forget. We love being able to brag and tell everyone about it. It was well worth every penny!!! We would do it again in a heartbeat and will be happy to recommend your services to others.

These guys were amazing!! Dimitri worked super hard to play all the songs I had requested & I had some pretty out of this world requests-Rise Against, Journey, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars. The sound quality & quality of the music was perfect!! All of my guests complimented on the music selection & the great skill of the musicians. (Cello & violin duo)

Very professional & flexible. Delivered exactly what was promised & more.

This vendor traveled all the way from New Orleans & did not charge me a travel fee. I did not experience this from any other musician I interviewed.

I would like to have my wedding again every year on my anniversary just to hear them play! Thank you Dimitri for such an awesome event.

They are a professional group and it shows in every way. Words cannot begin to express the quality and beauty of their performance. Our guests could not stop commenting on the beautiful music. If you are looking for a string quartet for your event, you need not look any further. They were amazing! Thank you so much Dimitri, you surpassed our expectations!

The prelude music was lovely as well (Dimitri's selections). And my own selection of Sheep May Safely Graze played during communion/interlude was played beautifully.

The musicians took a lot of care to ensure that the couple had the music that they wanted, but gave them direction as to what would be appropriate for the different times of the wedding. I have received numerous compliments on the music selection and beautiful "sound".

Dimitri and his wife were excellent performers. Since I paid for my wedding myself, I was on a very tight budget which meant that I spent less money for my wedding services. Dimitri treated me like I had paid millions for his service. He was very attentive to all of my needs and talked me through every step of the process. I did not need to chase after him on my wedding night to make sure it was the way I wanted. What bride has time to do that? It may sound crazy, but I even wrote simple lists of what I wanted and the other services I hired still did things their own way. My wedding was the most important night of my life so far. I would recommend anyone to hire Dimitri at Fine Arts Ensemble for any occasion especially if you want to hire someone and have no stress on your special occasion. They will show up and they will do exactly what you want. Also, I was very impressed with Dimitri's knowledge on the many parts of a wedding ceremony where music should be played.

Hi brides,

we came all the way from Hamburg/Germany to get married in Magic Nola. And our wedding was perfect, not least because of really fantastic and touching music performance by Dimitri and David (violin/cello) . Despite of the fact we couldn't talk to them before and ecerything had to be arranged by mail-, they made all our wishes come true.Their music really touched our hearts and made that special moment unforgetable ! High quality, erfect coherence to ceremony, professional arrangement: We can warmly recommend this ensemble ( as I've just done the day before) . Once again: thank you so much, David and Dimitri !!!

I found Fine Arts Ensemble on the internet and decided to take a chance with them. I was a bit nervous in the beginning because it was my wedding,i'd only heard their music from the website plus they would have to travel about an hour to get to me. Just so you know, EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL!!!! Just talking to Dimitri and getting everything(esp. the music)together was a breeze. Very professional, worth every penny, very patient, easy to get in contact with and my harpist did an excellent job for the ceremony. It was beautiful and all of my guests loved it. I'm so glad I went with this vendor(FAE) and would highly recommend them to anyone.

I was incredibly happy with the Fine Arts ensemble from the minute I contacted them after seeing high ratings on the internet. Since I lived out of state it was wonderful to be able to talk to Demetri to make sure everything was ready. Demetri suggested songs that would go well together and was responsive to my questions. The two performs arrived early and were dressed formally and played while guest sat (starting in the rain turning quickly to New Orleans heat). The music was wonderful (although my poor planning led to a record 6 minute ceremony). The price was very reasonable for the quality received. This was my first point of contact for a destination wedding and it set a high bar. I would definitely recommend using Fine Arts Ensemble!

Dimitri is a very talented musician and we were thrilled to have him play our ceremony as part of a string quartet that he organized. His rates are very reasonable and he did a great job of custom arranging a number of our favorite songs.

In addition, he was prompt is responding to our barrage of emails/calls and always gave helpful suggestions. This helped to keep us calm in the months and weeks leading up to our wedding and on the big day itself.

I don't always provide feedback but when I do... it's because the vendor was excellent all around.

You will not be disappointed!

Demetri did the music for my wedding ceremony. From the first conversation to the actual ceremony, I had absolutely no doubts that he would be fantastic. He was very helpful in choosing the music to set the tone for my wedding and it was very comforting to talk to someone who made me feel like all of my needs and expectations would be met. The music he played for the ceremony was absolutely beautiful and everyone has said that it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have been to. I couldn't be more pleased with the music and highly recommend them for any occassion. He really made my wedding very special and extremely elegant.

Everyone was amazed how beautiful the music was for the ceremony of my daughter's wedding. There was never a silent time in the ceremony. I had people from out of town that said, "I have never been to a ceremony so wonderful and I've been to alot of weddings!"
The Fine Arts Ensemble had music for us to choose from and we added a few other songs. It was perfect!!! Thank You!!!

This was one of the toughest vendor decisions I made. I am from gulfport, and I knew at the time I went looking that I was getting married outside and I knew of one song. I knew for certain that I wanted a violin and cello. That was the only decision I didn't want to compromise. We also had a friend of ours sing so this part was critical. I had hired a local lady who had talked me out of just about everything I wanted. I remember thinking to myself im the bride, your supposed to cater to what I want. Well needless to say I fired her. I paniced, seriously paniced. I was ony a few weeks out and down on money. I found Fine arts ensemble on wedding wire. I called three or four others before I contacted them, and I just didnt get that connection. I remember my first call to Fine Arts, Dimitri answered. I was almost in tears trying to explain to him what I wanted. I don't know that I even made it through the whole explanantion, and the words that came out of Dimitri mouth were "oh it will be fine, we will take care of you." I remember telling him that this woman told me i couldnt use the violin and the cello, and he reiterated my point that canon in D would not be the same without the violin and cello. I didn't know what songs worked and there were way too many to have to sit and find and listen to. I trusted Dimitri to do what he knew and what he was good at. Dimitri you were perfection. You are very talented and you run a great business. Thank you

Our wedding was a destination wedding in New Orleans with about 40 of our friends and family. It was planned to be in Jackson Square, but unfortunately, rain forced us to squeeze inside the site of our reception last minute. Fine Arts Ensemble was extremely accommodating in working around our last minute schedule/location change, and even allowed us to wait until about an hour before the start to make the call. I knew that any amount of rain could potentially damage their instruments, but they never once bothered us to make the call to be indoors.

From the beginning, Dmitri was very happy to work within our budget, and to match a competitive offer that we had received. Unfortunately, because of chamber music being played in the lobby of our ceremony/reception site, I (as the bride) could not hear the ceremony music being played, however, I heard it was AMAZING. Several guests commented on how much they liked FAE, who at one point even played a few bars of Lady Gaga's Bad Romance as a joke to entertain guests while they waited for me and the bridal party to arrive.

I am very pleased with the flexibility, professionalism, cost, and quality of FAE and would recommend them to any bride.

The positives: Fine Arts was very quick to respond, to give suggestions on what to play, etc... They were set up timely and played beautifully. They willingly, for no extra charge, allowed an outside singer (member of family) to sing a psalm with their musicians.
The negatives: I had a very quick Mass (not full service), which was not accounted for in the (pretty high) price. Of course, we did not expect this; HOWEVER, when people started arriving a little early, and the band was entirely set up to play, my mother asked if they could start playing. They said no, the contract didn't start til x time. Also, they randomly stated in a late email - not in the contract - that they must be listed in the wedding program. Not only was it too late to do this, but I found this a bit presumptuous and unprofessional. My grandparents weren't even listed in our very simple program. In summary, they played well, but I wasn't overly impressed with them.
