I can't say enough about Innocenti Strings. I booked them from their website, and Ben was extremely helpful through e-mail. I submitted all my requests for music through their user-friendly website. The week of the wedding, the head musician contacted me and we were able to chat about any last minute things. She confirmed all of my music choices. The music was BEAUTIFUL! I was very happy. It sounded so lovely. We moved the ceremony outside at the last minute, and they just went with it, no complaints. I thought the price was well worth it. 
Book them with confidence!

I had a small religious ceremony, but it was not in a church. Having the four piece quartet at my wedding made everything so beautiful and original. The musicans were talented and very professional. It gave the feeling of a grand ceremony, in a small and cozy setting. Ben Kulp was awesome. I wanted to do something different for my wedding and he recommended the most beautiful pieces, that were original and reflected my taste. Having the quartet play during cocktail hour was so elegant. Having a quartet not only enriched my ceremony, but lended a traditional feel to my not-so-traditional wedding. 


We spent a great number of hours coordinating with other string vendors.  the price was well worth it. The musicians were dressed professionally and blended into the vineyard setting with the perfect compliment of music. Although, I did not spend much time socializing with the duo, our guests praised their talents and commented on their professionalism. We would definitely consider them again for any event requiring strings and highly recommend them to other event planners.
