Once Upon a Time...
Ariana Strings unofficially began in 2012. I started performing for weddings when I was a music conservatory student. Couples began asking me more music choices and ensembles (like duets, trios, and quartets). Next thing I knew, I had performed for hundreds of weddings, created a huge music library filled with everything from Beethoven to The Beatles, and cultivated an incredible team of musicians.
Fun fact: I didn't mean to name my company after myself. My last name is quite tricky to spell and so many people listed Ariana Strings on wedding programs that I just went with it!
Our musicians are active professionals in the classical music scene who perform in Connecticut's most prominent symphonies, chamber ensembles, operas, and musical theater & ballet orchestras. Performing in 70-95 weddings per year together, we have a unique, blended style and work together as a perfect unit.

What our couples say...
"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"
