My wife and I used Aviva Strings to play at our wedding ceremony on September 30, 2017 at The Inn at Woodloch in Hawley, PA. We reviewed several musicians very thoroughly before deciding on Aviva Strings and we could not be happier. They played beautifully, just loud enough to... Read More provide the perfect backdrop for our wedding, but just quiet enough that I got to focus fully on my bride and our special day. Aviva Strings has a very wide-ranging repertoire and it was very easy to pick exactly the music we wanted for our ceremony. They were also very flexible and even wrote a custom arrangement for us for a modest $75 fee. We wanted "You Are The Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne for our recessional and, not only did they score it for us, but it came out great! It was the perfect way to cap our wedding. From start to finish, working with Aviva Strings was easy. They were very responsive in the months leading up to the ceremony. Any time we had a question or a request, they answered quickly and made the whole process very easy. Most importantly, on the day of the wedding, we didn't have to worry about a thing. They came in, set up and packed up all on their own without any hassle. All-in-all, it was a great experience and we would definitely recommend them!

We hired AVIVA strings on short notice, after learning that another band we were using couldn't play any classical music for our ceremony. Despite how late we booked them AVIVA took great care in working with me to select which pieces we wanted played and with what... Read More instrumentation.

As anyone reading reviews on a wedding website knows, planning a wedding is an overwhelming amount of work. AVVIA and the owner Jessica, is one of those wonderful vendors, who you choose to work with, and they do so much of the planning work for you. From the first step of... Read More receiving the quote, all of the information arrived quickly, and all of the details were presented clearly to understand what each option would cost. It made it easy for me to determine that with our budget, music for the prelude & ceremony by a duo would be best, but I was able to clearly see what it would cost for a trio or quartet, what it would cost to add the cocktail hour etc. I got some quotes from other musicians, and not only were they less clear, the thing that was clear is that they were far more expensive. We opted to pay an extra fee for a custom arrangement of one of our favorite songs for our processional, but left up to AVVIA what to play for the prelude selections, and they were all really lovely. I wish that I could say that I had some great interactions with the musicians, but given the short block of time that we booked them for, I never even had the chance to thank them. But, the truth is... that is exactly what you want, is on your wedding day to have people who efficiently arrive, do what they are scheduled to do, and you never have to take time to give them instruction, Jessica made sure that all of the details were perfectly mapped out well in advance. I could not recommend them more highly, having their lovely soundtrack for the most important part of our wedding day was so meaningful, and in the one phone call before the wedding when the stress of everything I had to get done was really settling in, she was so reassuring and offered me some great advice to help stay calm & focused. If you chose to hire AVIVA for your wedding, you will be in very good hands during a time when any stress you can take off your plate is vital!
