FANTASTIC! They exceeded any expectations I had and were really wonderful. They were extremely professional and to say our guests loved them is an understatement! My dad was so impressed at once point during the cocktail he was just standing there watching them in awe!! They made our ceremony and cocktail hour perfect- and walking down the aisle to "Crazy in Love" will be something we (and our guests) will never forget! This entire process was one of the easiest I had during the wedding planning process and they made it seamless and organized!
I cannot say enough great things about Divina Strings!! Throughout the entire process, they were extremely professional, and I didn't feel like I was just working with a vendor. They made the conversations feel like I was talking to a friend! Their music is outstanding! They play a mix of classical and current music and will even learn a song if you request. They played Pachabels Canon in D as I walked down the aisle, which I have thought about since I was a little girl and brought me to tears. Absolutely amazing!
WONDERFUL! They exceeded all expectations! The music set the exact tone we wanted for our ceremony. Danielle and Andrew were both easy to work with, listened, and delivered perfectly!
I ordered the trio for my ceremony and cocktail hour and Divina Strings was absolutely incredible helping me every step of the way. Danielle was so helpful with all the questions I had and incredibly friendly and professional. She helped make the music selection process easy. Although she herself did not play at my wedding, she had John get in touch with me to go through my music selections to make sure everything was perfect prior to the day of. The music was phenomenal and it was amazing to walk down the aisle and see the trio perform. It made my day that much more magical. Would absolutely recommend to anyone who wishes to have a string ensemble perform at their event.
Divina Strings was a wonderful addition to our Sunday wedding and provided music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception. Danielle was extremely patient and easy to work with. She went back and forth with me a few times as we tried to nail down the right details. She was very helpful in figuring out what services Divina Strings could provide within our budget. We did not give her a lot of specifics other than the one or two genres we wanted for the day but the choices Danielle selected fit right in with our atmosphere. She was an excellent MC and kept the mood upbeat. Everyone was so friendly and sweet that day. From beginning to end, it was a really stress free process working with them and the music ended up being exactly what we wanted.
Divina Strings played at our ceremony and we absolutely loved them!! My wife Jen and I got married 10/29/16 at Saltwater Farm Vineyard and couldn't have had a more perfect ceremony. Danielle and team were so great and so easy to work with throughout the planning process. They truly made our ceremony so beautiful and added such a nice touch to the whole day . Can't recommend these guys enough - definitely use them!!!
Danielle was great to work with. She was responsive and gave great advise as to the type of music the string trio would perform at our ceremony and cocktail hour. The string trio was fantastic. They played beautifully and our guests gave them high praise.
The string trio played at my ceremony and they did a wonderful job!
Divina Strings was such a pleasure to work with from begining to end. Danielle was always accessible and willing to work with us on creating a few custom arrangements. The music was fantastic and staff extremely professional. We are so glad that we found Divina Strings!
We hired Divina Strings to play during the ceremony and cocktail hour at our outdoor summer vineyard wedding. They played beautifully. Everyone complimented the ceremony and we know the music was a large part of the great atmosphere. We also requested a custom song during the ceremony and they were more than happy to arrange and play it! Very easy to work with and very responsive- we could not have been happier.
We couldn't have asked for a better experience with Divina Strings! They played at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and everything was perfect! Danielle goes above and beyond to meet your needs, and she is even willing to learn new songs. Thank you for adding a touch that really impressed our guests!
Beautiful, elegant, stress free and knew their stuff! I gave them the song I wanted to walk down the aisle to and left the rest up to them! They did not disappoint and I couldn't have asked for more beautiful music for the ceremony!
Divina Strings played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and I absolutely loved them! They played beautifully, and even played an arrangement of Katy Perry's Firework for my dad :) I appreciated that they always responded to emails quickly, and they made sure that everything ran smoothly on the day of the wedding. The musicians themselves were top notch, and very respectful. Divina Strings helped make our wedding extra special, and I would recommend them to anyone!
Divina Strings was fantastic throughout our wedding planning. Danielle was always helpful in the planning process, and once we selected some songs and preferred styles, she and the string musicians took care of the rest. This was a huge stress reliever as the wedding approached. The trio for our wedding was exceptional. They played beautifully, and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Overall a wonderful experience!
Divina Strings were super easy to work with, and added a beautiful touch to our outdoor wedding. Danielle was great and very helpful with the set up, and John and Barbarw played beautifully. Would definitely recommend!
Divina Strings were amazing! They are very gifted musicians and have an incredible repertoire - everything from Mozart to the Beatles. Their beautiful music made our ceremony even more special. They were easy and enjoyable to work with throughout the whole process - even braving Blizzard Jonas to make it to our wedding and offering to sleep over if necessary in order to be there! If you are looking for a reasonably priced string quartet of gifted musicians, contact Divina Strings - you'll love them. Thank you so much!
Fresh Sound with Classical Covers of Modern SongsReviewed on 1/06/2016 Clarissa G
If you are looking to put a fun twist to a classy reception, this group is it! For our cocktail hour, I wanted to add personal touches instead of the usual generic elements, so I went in search of an ensemble that could play classical versions of modern songs (Taylor Swift in particular). Not surprisingly, ensembles that play modern covers are hard to come by in Connecticut, so I was thrilled to stumble upon Divina Strings on the Knot! I immediately reached out to Danielle Turano and within hours began working out the details to have the ensemble create a quartet arrangement for "Blank Space." The day of the event, not only did we enjoy hearing our commissioned song, but the quartet surprised us with two additional Taylor Swift songs! It was so much fun to hear our guests react when they'd recognize what the group was playing. Planning a wedding reception can be stressful, but Danielle's professionalism and enthusiasm as well as her outstanding ensemble made this part truly delightful.

Danielle and Divina Strings made my ceremony so special.
Amazing!Reviewed on 11/24/2015 Allie O
Love these guys! They were able to pull together an arrangement of a song they had never done before for our ceremony as well learn a different song not on their rep. They were super easy to work with, really friendly, no complaints! Truly great...also, they have soooo much good pop stuff on their repertoire!
Pop Culture and Classy!Reviewed on 10/26/2015 Carly B
We hired Divina Strings to play music before and during the wedding ceremony. We wanted traditional Jewish music for the ceremony, but had the idea to play movie scores while people were finding their seats. Danielle at Divina Strings was super nice and super accommodating! She found the music we requested and played it beautifully. One of our favorite moments of the wedding - while we were waiting to sign the ketubah, we heard the theme from Jurassic Park. It was awesome. They also braved the cold for us, playing outside on a day that it snowed. Thank you so much!
There are not enough praises that can be sung about the music and persona of Divina Strings. The music was enchanting and created an ambiance that made our wedding more special than it already was. The decision to have Divina Strings provide the music during the ceremony and cocktail hour was the one of the best decisions made in planning our wedding. Danielle is professional and personal and truly takes an interest in her clients, making you feel like you are her only client. I would use Divina Strings again and again and again. They are a true testament to the magic of music.
Wonderful serviceReviewed on 10/06/2015 Chanel A
We used a Divina Strings duo for our outdoor wedding in September 2015. The entire process was so organized and Danielle was such a pleasure to work with. She kept me on schedule with selecting songs and the payments. She really helped me to organize the ceremony in our first phone call and assisted in selecting songs and provided some great suggestions since we wanted to include some non-traditional songs for certain points during the ceremony and the recessional. I'm so happy that we decided to include a strings duo for our ceremony since many of the things we did were non-traditional. I think that having the strings duo really elevated the ceremony and was a great value for what it brought to our day. I would definitely recommend using Divina Strings if you are considering having strings at your wedding!
Made our ceremony and cocktail hour!Reviewed on 10/03/2015 Kara P
Divina Strings did the music for our outdoor rose garden ceremony and they totally made it. We got to choose from a variety of beautiful classics and they could not have been more perfect. I got so emotional as soon as I heard them start playing the song I chose to walk down the aisle to. I'm glad we decided to also have them play during our cocktail hour, so many people told us how much they enjoyed the live music. We decided to choose more modern day music which you would not expect for a string trio and they sounded great! Katy Perry "Firework" and Coldplay "Viva La Vida" were my favorites. Thank you so much to Divina Strings you guys were awesome and made our special day that much better!
2015 Waterfront WeddingReviewed on 9/30/2015 Beth G
I am very happy we chose Divina Strings for our wedding ceremony music. The planning process was very easy and interactive; Danielle helped us choose the perfect music for our special day. We had an unexpected delay to the start of the ceremony and the violinist was very flexible in adjusting to the new schedule, playing additional pieces to fill the gap. It made what could have been an uncomfortable situation more enjoyable for our guests - while adding to the beauty of the waterfront setting. I would highly recommend Divina Strings to anyone looking to add that special touch to any special occassion or event.
BeautifulReviewed on 9/13/2015
My now husband wouldn't consider ourselves traditional, so for our wedding we wanted everything to be a bit more unique. For our ceremony, we wanted joyful, modern music that our guests would enjoy. Not only does Divina Strings offer a wide variety of song choices, but they are extremely talented and had our guests complimenting our ceremony music all night. Definitely hire them!!
