The musical talent and professionalism of Atlantic Strings is superb and I highly recommend them! We used Atlantic Strings for our wedding ceremony and they played beautiful music. After a lot of research on string quartets for our wedding ceremony we came across Atlantic... Read More Strings and we were blown away by their versatility and professionalism.

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... Read More 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.
