Live music for people who love music.  
You'll hear the Ariana Strings difference.

Bienvenue chez Ariana Strings LLC! Nos ensembles de musique de mariage comprennent des musiciens professionnels formés au conservatoire qui interprètent de tout, de la musique classique traditionnelle au Top 100 d'aujourd'hui. En tant qu'entreprise primée, nous offrons le plus haut niveau de professionnalisme, ajoutant une touche d'élégance à votre journée spéciale.

Depuis 2010, nous avons joué pour des centaines de mariages, nous savons donc exactement quoi faire pour que votre journée soit parfaite.

Des sélections de musique à la coordination avec vos fournisseurs, vous pouvez compter sur nous pour aller au- delà des attentes pour faire de votre mariage tout ce que vous avez jamais imaginé.

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 1000+ 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, we perform modern pop string quartet covers of your favorite songs.

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

We cannot say enough amazing things about Ariana Strings! Ariana was lovely to work with! She was so sweet, communicated throughout the whole process and went above and beyond to make our ceremony and cocktail hour amazing! From finding specific arrangements for songs that were special to us, to timing my entrance song perfectly to how I envisioned it in my head, everything was simply perfect! Ariana helped me pick songs for our recessional and even sent the nicest email the morning of! I would chose Ariana Strings time and time again if I could. Our guests are still raving out the quartet and how amazing they sounded. You made our ceremony and cocktail hour completely magical; thank you!!!

Find out if we are available for your wedding day

Ready to elevate your wedding entertainment? Make the first move by inquiring about your wedding date. We typically book out about 1-2 years in advance, so click below to find out if we’re available.


You’ll get an email back with a, “Heck yes!” or a, “Sorry, we don’t have that date” within 24 hours and include next steps.


Choose your perfect
Ariana Strings ensemble

After you receive the go-ahead, "We have your date available!" I will guide you you to find the AS string group that’s the perfect fit for your style, celebration, and will provide investment details. 


When you feel like we’ve landed on the perfect musical complement to your day, Ariana will send over a proposal to make it official.


Curate your setlist and plan with expert guidance 

3-4 months out, we co-create a set list that exceeds your expectations. 


Don’t know what your guests will love? I do! We’ll talk timing and solidify little details that make a musical performance unforgettable, meeting the dreams you have from walking down the aisle to sipping cocktails as a newly married couple.

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 :)

Love Notes


Michelle, Bride 

"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"
