It was the second most special moment (after the "I do," of course!) of the ceremony. To me, this shows the...

Fontana was the perfect blend of traditional and modern! Fontana played for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They provided great song recommendations based on our style and had TONS of musical selections. The inclusion of the string trio was well worth the money and experience!

We chose Fontana to play for our outdoor, October wedding ceremony. They were wonderful to work with from the first time I reached out through the big day. I asked my cousin to sing a song during the ceremony (one that wasn't currently in their song list), and they created a... Read More special arrangement. They worked with her directly to find the right key, so that it was just right - and it was! It brought me to tears during the ceremony. They also were patient with all of my questions, and made great suggestions for the prelude, postlude, and entrance songs. They were professional, timely, and so very talented. No hiccups whatsoever. (Or, at least none that they told me about! :) Couldn't have made a better choice for our special day. Thank you, Fontana!!

Best Trio in Town

Reviewed on 10/28/2015 Linnea J

I could not have been more happy with Trio Fontana. They played during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner at my wedding. Their selection of classical and contemporary titles is extensive. I received so many complements about the music from my guests, including an opera... Read More singer with the Metropolitan Opera and a board member of a local chamber group ensemble. They were able to seamlessly fade out of the processional music when I arrived at the altar with my parents, a feat that I have witnessed many chamber groups either fail to do at all or awkwardly attempt. They also dressed very professionally to match the formality of the wedding (another element where I have seen other wedding musicians fail miserably). Their price is also extremely reasonable for 3 world-class musicians. I couldn't have been happier.
