  • Marshunda, who coordinated our contract and set everything up with our Cellist, Shannon was fanstastic to work with - they both were! Affordable Elegance is the way to go if you're looking for a Cellist, Violinist or even a string trio. We are out of state in CT, and Marshunda made the planning process very easy using email. Shannon did a great job and it was a huge hit at our wedding. The music was just perfect.

  • We hired Affordable Elegance as a string trio to play for 2 hours... as our guests arrived, for our ceremony and for our cocktail reception. They were a pleasure to work with up front, made song selection very easy and then expertly and so pleasantly played a wonderful mixture of old and new.. I had many guest compliments. I felt their price was fair and their contribution to our event... elegant... they lived up to their name! Thank you!

  • We are so lucky we were able to have the trio from Affordable Elegance perform at our wedding! They sounded terrific and it set the perfect tone for the reception and cocktail hour. They even learned a song for my wife's processional that wasn’t already part of their repertoire which was great. We're so glad they were a part our wedding!

  • Marshunda and Aaron came and played at our wedding on September 8th. The music was absolutely beautiful! It was exactly as we had planned. Marshunda was very responsive in the planning process and answered all my questions very timely. We had compliments all night about the beautiful music at our ceremony. Thank you both so very much!

    Thank you Laura! We really appreciate making each ceremony unique. That uniqueness only comes from brides and grooms selecting the pieces of music that suits their unity! All the best!

  • Perfect for our ceremony and cocktail hour! The music selection was great and we went with contemporary songs for the ceremony. One of the songs was a Beatles song and my dad picked up on it right away. The songs were clear, the music was great, and the sound was awesome! I am very happy that we had a string trio!

    So glad we were able to add to your day's celebration! We love making each event unique!

  • Affordable Elegance did an amazing job with our ceremony and cocktail hour music! We had so many guests comment on how much they enjoyed their music during the cocktail hour. Marshunda was very quick to respond to emails, and was accommodating when we asked if they could play hymns (and then when we later said that we actually wouldn't need hymns played). She was also very accommodating regarding specific requests that our church had, such as arriving very early, and also worked around an island ferry schedule. All in all, Affordable Elegance was just that- very affordable elegance! Would highly recommend to anyone.

  • Affordable Elegance is just that...affordable and elegant. The music for the ceremony and the cocktail hour at my daughter's wedding was superb.....the choice of music was perfect and the sound was classic elegance. They were responsive to any and all of my inquiries and were reliable. It is important for a couple planning a wedding, to have vendors that are reliable and communicative, and Marshunda at Affordable Elegance was both. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for string musicians to enhance a special occasion.

    Thank you Kim! I really enjoyed the year long communications that we had in preparation for Molly's wedding. It really gave me a sense of what you all are looking for. The venue was simply spectacular and it was also enjoyable seeing guests' surprised faces during the cocktail hour when we performed a Beatles and Stevie Wonder tune!

  • Affordable string elegance did a wonderful job for our farm wedding last September. I asked them to play a song that wasn't listed on their suggestion sheet and they were happy to play it for us! We also booked them early enough to get our cocktail hour for free which was a great bonus. Highly recommend Affordable String Elegance for any wedding!

    Megan thank you for your kind words! It was my pleasure to arrange the music for your special day! You should always have the music you want. We also enjoy learning new music! I wish all the best!

  • We communicated completely by email. They were easy to work with although had some chair requirements (no arms, and cannot be in direct sunlight) that caused some challenges. They were an affordable easy to book option and I'd reccomens them. We had them pick the music so did not customize or ask for specific pieces to be played so I can't speak to that.
