You've planned your wedding ceremony to include such special moments, with personal stories and vows, and unique touches. Your friends and family want to hear your love story and the best way to do so is to have a great ceremony sound system. Learn more here.

Sound check with your readers and officiant just before the ceremony
Please note: We have 2 ceremony sound systems (1 is battery-powered, 1 is electric.)
Amplify Your Ensemble
Make sure your professional wedding musicians are heard by all your guests. Are you having a large event in a big space? Alternatively, many guests in a small space? Then, amplification is the way to go! That way, your guests will hear our music beautifully.
Please note: The violin & guitar duet includes amplification, so there's no need to add this service on for that group. We will need access to a power outlet.

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"
