It's not so much a question of volume, but a question about the richness of sound.
If you love the sound of a string quartet, then that's your best bet. When you remove
instruments, you remove layers of sound.
Though we encourage clients to enjoy the fullest sound they can afford, we do live
in Naples, where quiet, intimate beach weddings happen as often as the sun sets,
and these intimate ceremonies are often accompanied with intimate numbers of musicians,
If you're not sure what size of group to go with for your event, let us know. We're
happy to help you decide what ensemble suits your ceremony best.
To begin at the beginning: We recommend first narrowing down what piece or style
you imagine hearing as you walk down the aisle. Your processional is, after all,
the most important piece of music of the day! From this starting point we can easily
help you to tailor the remaining selections to give your ceremony a nice flow.
We also provide all our clients with an online ceremony music form, listing many
of our recommendations for music at all points of the ceremony. You can choose pieces
from this list or even submit your own choices there.
If you would like even more ideas for ceremony choices, remember-- the internet
is a marvelous resource. You can search for ceremony music online and find lists
of music and recordings galore.
Yes! We have a fantastic and ever-changing music library, and we are confident that
we have something you'd like to hear on your special day. If there is a song that
is special to you but not on our extensive list, let us know. There may be a fee
to have this music arranged, but this day is all about showcasing what matters to
you, so let us help you to make it happen!

All good things take time! A lot of pop songs haven't been arranged for string quartet yet, and a quality arrangement
of a song takes time. If you'd like a song to be played at your event that isn't
on our list you'll need to touch base with us 60 days before the event date to discuss
It is not necessary for us to be present at your rehearsal.
Thanks to our years of wedding performances we are well skilled in knowing exactly
how to pace the music flawlessly at your ceremony without awkward gaps or abrupt
endings. A quick conversation with your officiant or wedding coordinator before
the ceremony begins is all that is required to have the information we need.
