The Atlantic Stings were the perfect wedding Quartet, creating the beautiful atmosphere for our daughter's magnificent June milestone ceremony at the Royal Sonesta. The musicians were professional, talented, and very musical, creating the beautiful ambience to welcome our guests to the venue, while establishing the perfect mood of love, respect and dignity throughout the ceremony from the wedding procession to the recession. Many of our family and guests are professional musicians, and they commented on the wonderful musical talents of the Atlantic Strings and the quality of their musicianship. It was a pleasure working with Nina Bishop Nunn and the Atlantic Stings, and it is with enthusiasm, confidence, and without any hesitation that I highly recommend this outstanding quartet for weddings or all special occasions! We will always cherish the beautiful music played by the Atlantic Stings, and the role the musicians and their music played in our daughter's milestone celebration.

Thank you again ASM for providing classy and friendly service!! Cheers! ABarr
ceremony music at Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RIReviewed on 12/10/2012 Brynn C
We hired Atlantic Strings as a trio for our ceremony music, and they were absolutely perfect. The music was flawless and exactly what I envisioned for our ceremony. They worked with my cousins who sang a couple different songs, and they sounded great together after less than 1 hour of rehearsal time before the ceremony. Nina was a joy to work with, she was extremely kind, patient, and helpful. I highly recommend Atlantic Strings for any wedding in New Englang!
We booked the Atlantic Strings quartet for our wedding. It was great having live classical music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. We wanted a particular song for our bridal party to walk out to and they were able to accommodate our request. I would highly recommend them!
Atlantic Strings played at our wedding - both the ceremony and the reception. They were super flexible about our music requests and played each song exquisitely. Their hard work really set the tone for a perfect evening wedding, and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend this vendor, they are fabulous!
I worked with Nina and her talented group for my daughter's wedding in July at the NE Aquarium. Nina was wonderful to work with; she responded quickly to my calls and emails. The quartet even learned a new song at the wedding couple's request. They presented professionally and played beautifully. We received numerous compliments on the music and would highly recommend.
I loved working with Atlantic Strings. Nina was so pleasant and responsive and the quartet did an amazing job at our wedding. I was so happy with the music and had many comments after the wedding about what a great job they did. Thank you!!
We booked Atlantic String’s string quartet for our wedding ceremony, and they were fantastic! They were a perfect complement to our outdoor ceremony, bringing a classic sound and elegance to our venue. They played prelude music (during seating), the wedding party processional, the bride’s processional, and the recessional. Atlantic String’s repertoire is vast, and there are plenty of classical, jazz, and contemporary songs to choose from. You can also choose to have songs that are not in their catalog arranged for a small fee, which we opted to do for our wine ceremony. They did an amazing job with that arrangement…it was perfect! Nina Bishop Nunn, the Director, was very easy to communicate with via email, and they used an easy, secure, online payment system (which we appreciated). We received a lot of compliments from our wedding guests about how good Atlantic Strings sounded and the lovely atmosphere that their presence created. We couldn’t agree more!
Nina Bishop Nunn and her fellow musicians were perfect for our 85 person wedding in an old, vaulted ceiling building. They played as guests arrived, during the ceremony and for cocktail hour, about 90minutes total. Nina was so communicative leading up to the wedding day and the trio arrived on time, set up quickly and played beautifully. People don't often think about music beyond the DJ, but having Nina and her trio play set such a gorgeous and elegant tone that just elevated the ceremony.
Atlantic Strings made our wedding a dream! I'm a professional musician and most of the guests at our wedding were also musicians and they impressed us all. We couldn't have been happier!
Atlantic Strings was WONDERFUL!! I seriously cannot say enough good things about this group. My fiance and I are both musicians, so we were super picky when choosing music for our engagement party, and couldn't have been happier. Nina, the owner, was super easy to work with and very professional. The group looked wonderful and played beautifully. Our guests raved about their skill level, and I cannot wait to have them play for our wedding as well! I strongly recommend to every other bride!!
We hired a string quartet from Atlantic Strings and they did not disappoint! They provided beautiful music, an elegant aesthetic, and professional organization both leading up to and on the day of the wedding. They played all of our requests (even the unusual ones!) and on top of everything else, they were friendly and happy to be there! The music can make or break your big day. Don't take chances... go with Atlantic Strings!
My wife and I hired Atlantic Strings to play before and during our ceremony. They were absolutely wonderful - we corresponded with Nina during the planning and she was always prompt and very easy to work with. Before the ceremony, we were waiting in a room close enough to hear the quartet and they sounded great. During the ceremony they played two new arrangements . Both songs were very meaningful to us and their versions were perfect - many of our guests commented on how great they sounded. We cannot recommend Atlantic Strings highly enough!
I had Atlantic Strings play at my wedding at the Harvard Faculty Club this past August. I Couldn't have asked for a better team! Nina is quick to respond to inquires. The musicians were extremely talented (also impressed us with wonderful performances of our special request songs that they learned for us!). Atlantic Strings were everything I dream of for my ceremony and cocktail hour. Thank you Atlantic Strings!
Atlantic Strings performed at our ceremony and cocktail hour. While I was in such a daze walking into the ceremony to meet my husband on the stage, I did pay attention to the music as we walked out together and I was THRILLED with our beautiful it sounded. Everyone who attended cocktail hour talked nonstop at dinner about how wonderful the trio was, and how it was a favored part of the evening. We would DEFINITELY recommend Atlantic Strings to anyone who is interested in live music at their wedding, or any event. Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable!
The trio played at my daughter's outdoor wedding at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center and the cocktail hour following. They were wonderful. Nina was very helpful and answered emails so promptly and thoroughly. The music was beautiful, and the trio elegant. True professionals in every way.
Kevin and I were thrilled to have found Atlantic Strings!! Nina and the Trio added the PERFECT touch to the romantic, elegant, and joyous wedding that we hoped for. As others have accurately stated, Nina is incredibly professional and instills confidence from the very beginning. We were very impressed by the timeliness of her responses to our questions and emails, and were equally impressed with Atlantic Strings' extensive song choices! Whether you're looking for pure classical music, more modern tunes, or music to be customized for your event, you have come to the right place! Our trio was on-time, professional, warm, and executed our plans just as we hoped. Thank you for adding this special and beautiful touch to our wedding day!!! -Amy & Kevin
We got married in September 2015, and Atlantic Strings played for our outdoor wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and we were so happy with them! We chose all of the songs for our ceremony from their repertoire, and they worked with our cousin to accompany her singing Ave Maria during the ceremony. For the cocktail hour, we asked them to play pop music, and they did a great job selecting songs. Nina was very organized throughout the planning process and the whole quartet sounded beautiful!
Nina was such a pleasure to work with for our Boston wedding in October. Very professional and very accommodating to our special music requests. Our guests loved every moment they played. Highly recommended and thank you Nina to you and your wonderful musicians for making our day so extra special.
Highly recommended!Reviewed on 10/07/2015 Bridget W
We chose Atlantic Strings because we wanted more modern music played on classical instruments. We went with the duo (Violin and Cello.) Nina was always professional to deal with and responded quickly to our questions. She worked closely with us to develop our playlist including some special request songs that we had. Our guests absolutely enjoyed the music provided during the prelude and cocktail hour. Our only regret as bride and groom is that we did not have time to enjoy their music as well for obvious reasons, or to personally thank the musicians that played on our wedding day.
Great Ceremony and Cocktail Hour MusicReviewed on 9/25/2015 Jen A
Nina and the whole Atlantic Strings group were great to work with. From the moment I first reached out to them to their last song at our cocktail hour everything went so smoothly. They helped me pick out the right songs and were even able to order arrangements for us for music that was not in their library and played them beautifully at our ceremony. I got so many complements from all our guests on our ceremony and cocktail hour music. Besides playing beautiful music, they were real pros - they knew their way around our venue, they arrived early, worked out the necessary signals with our officiant and coordinator and I didn't have to worry about a thing!
Great Experience with Atlantic StringsReviewed on 9/24/2015 Meredith R
We had a quartet play at our ceremony at the Wickenden Chapel at Tabor Academy. They were outstanding performers and very professional. They played a number of different selections, ranging from U2 to Pachelbel's Canon in D. Nina was extremely helpful throughout the process of music selection and all other aspects leading up to the day of the wedding. She responded to all emails promptly and coordinated well with one of our friends who we designated to give the quartet cues during the ceremony. I cannot recommend Atlantic Strings highly enough.
Great Ceremony MusicReviewed on 9/15/2015 Elizabeth S
I recently used Atlantic Strings for my outdoor wedding ceremony in Portsmouth, NH this past August. Nina, the owner and contact person, was always quick to respond with any questions and offered many ideas to help me in an area that I didn't know much about! I originally hired a string duo but at the last minute changed it to a string trio since we had money in the budget and I wanted a few songs that required a more full sound. All the guests commented on how beautiful everything was and it really added that special touch to the ceremony. While I was taking pictures beforehand around the site I could hear them playing the prelude music off in the distance and it sounded beautiful! The sound really carries (not in a bad way though) and it was so nice. Everything else was kind of a blur once the ceremony started honestly, but I watched our video and they still sounded great on the tape and played the requested songs I asked for. My wedding coordinator also said they were on time and there were no other issues the day of.
Best ceremony music!Reviewed on 9/12/2015 Tori P
We looked around and listened to a bunch a samples online. They are even better in person. So easy to work with! We selected a few songs and then let the group select the rest. They were fabulous.
Hired Atlantic Strings to play at our wedding at Glen Magna Farms in Danvers in August 2014. Atlantic Strings did a great job, was easy to work with, and reasonably priced. We interacted with the group leader Nina Biship. Very professional. Helped us plan the music.
