Hear From Our Clients
“We had a trio from Innocenti Strings play at our daughter's wedding recently. The musicians were very professional and the music was amazing and made the wedding a memorable experience. Innocenti Strings was very easy to work with and very flexible with the planning.”

"Definitely an added personal touch to any wedding! Loved that their string quartet was very accommodating when it came to choosing songs for our ceremony. As a musician myself, I couldn't ask for more. Having a live band adds that extra emotion that you can't get from playing from a DJ. Many of our guests loved to hear pop favorites played so elegantly. Everyone was so moved by the way the string quartet played my entrance song "Beethoven's 5 Secrets" and when we did the traditional portions of the ceremony with the song "Prayer". I highly recommend spending your money on a live band, especially Innocenti Strings!"

"This was the second time I used Innocenti Strings. This was for a smaller wedding so we opted for a violinist. Rena was wonderful. I couldn’t have been more pleased. They are so professional and easy to deal with. I will recommend them to all my friends. Thank you for making my daughters wedding perfect."
