We Bring the Concert Stage to Your Wedding Day

Strings are undeniably romantic. Music sets the tone for your entire wedding, so we create a magical, breath-taking atmosphere that gives you and your guests an unforgettable experience. Our bespoke approach ensures that your wedding music reflects your style, love story, and dreams.

We are more than just background music. 

All The Hits From 1645 To Today

Here's the thing: We don't just gig, we perform

That means if you want background music no one will notice, we’re not for you.


Our 2000+ song library is filled with your wedding dream songs:

  • Classical music

  • Modern pop songs

  • Classic rock

  • Disney

  • Broadway

  • Jazz

  • 70s, 80s, 90s, and more!


When we play Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love", you're hearing music that was tailored especially for our strings. That means you get a beautiful instrumental cover that truly complements the original song, elevating your wedding with music your guests can't find anywhere else.


Like the famous Bridgerton soundtrack, our classical musicians perform modern pop string quartet covers of your favorite songs.

(P.S. We’ve been doing “Bridgerton-style” since before Bridgerton existed!)

“Brought the entire vibe together!"
Ariana Strings brought our entire wedding vibe together. Prior to booking Ariana helped us determine which ensemble and which packages were appropriate to meet our needs. The guests could not stop raving about the music! They have so many songs to choose from but are also willing to learn the music that you like!
