All the Hits from 1645 to Today
We are more than just background music.
Our 1000+ song library is filled with classical music favorites, modern pop songs, classic rock, Disney, Broadway, jazz, 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're getting a beautiful instrumental cover that truly compliments the original song and artist.
Like Vitamin String Quartet, we perform modern pop string quartet covers of your favorite music and, yes, we definitely have Bridgerton!

We are an exclusive tight-knit team comprised of professional musicians. You'll find our musicians on stage with the top symphonies, performing in the pit of national Broadway tours, ballets, and opera theaters.
Unlike other wedding groups, you know who will be there for your big day. Our core team and guest artists are featured in our videos. Meet us here.
Bringing our music to new audiences brings us so much joy. It is our honor to bring the highest level of musicianship and artistry to your wedding day.

A Note from Ariana
I'm with you every step of the way
Don't know where to start? Don't worry! I go above and beyond to make sure every detail is perfect and exactly as you've imagined.
When you book Ariana Strings, I'll be your one and only coordinator to help you every step of the way. Over the last 13 years and 600 weddings, I have fine-tuned my way of organizing all the details and helping my couples plan.
I make your planning fun and easy. I'll incorporate your style preferences and personality so our sound fits in with your overall wedding vision.
Most importantly, I’m always happy to answer questions. I genuinely love getting to know my couples and I’m always rooting for you! It’s not uncommon to see me getting misty-eyed at ceremonies. You are more than a “gig”, date, or number. It’s an honor to be a part of your wedding day and I want nothing more than for you to have an incredible experience.
Contact me directly to inquire about your date (and let me know if I should cut bangs again :)
Leading the Industry with Integrity and Creativity
We have been featured as a wedding industry leader in notable online and print publications, including Connecticut Bride Magazine, Carats & Cake, The Hartford Courant, Style Me Pretty, Glittery Bride, Wedding Wire Real Weddings, The Knot Real Weddings, and Hartford Magazine.

"We booked a cello and violinist for our wedding, and Ariana & her team were absolutely perfect for our Aria wedding! Ariana is funny, sweet, attentive, and extremely talented! She kept it laid back and fun to pick the music, but was extremely timely and made sure she checked in on a regular basis throughout the planning process. I didn't have to worry about a thing! I can't thank her and her team enough for a beautiful start to our day! <3"
