This trio of ladies made our already personal ceremony absolutely perfect. They played our favorite song and even allowed my cousin to sing the lyrics while they played. 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!

A string group was the one and only thing that was important for our wedding and I could not have found a better group. They were perfect. They were very organized, professional, kind, and so very talented. I didn't have a lot of help planning my wedding and so I had a lot of... Read More questions for them. They helped me so much and made me feel so at ease (and I'm a very OCD/anxious person). I requested a couple songs not on their list (Game of Thrones and Ed Sheeran) and they were flawless. I had people asking about them all night. I was so proud. They helped the day go by flawlessly and 100% recommend them. I find myself trying to think of another event I could use them for. I feel like I can't say enough; they were really perfect. Couldn't be happier.

Best Trio in Town

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.
