Wedding review, Fox Hollow Somerly on 1/18/14 written for liweddings.com

Capriccio Ensemble ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

OMG Natalie was the best. I had so many people rave about them and think it was so awesome my bridemaids walked down down the aisle to Guns n roses November rain. I walked down to a thousand years. It was just perfect. I didn't really get to hear them in the cocktail hour as I was so insanely busy but I heard they were amazing.  They just added to the wedding and made it more perfect. Like I said, we really had the dream team of wedding vendors.

Natalie and Capriccio Ensemble were excellent. We booked a string trio for the ceremony and a solo pianist for the cocktail hour. Natalie was super professional and warm from the get-go and throughout the process. She was very thorough and helpful. They played the exact songs we discussed for the ceremony and the guests all said the music was wonderful throughout, as we were a bit distracted from the music itself :) I would definitely recommend Capriccio Ensemble!

Capriccio's music is magical. Natalie is the violinist and leads this group to complete excellence. We recommend her and Capriccio to all clients most successfully.

From our first conversation with Natalie, we knew that Capriccio Ensemble would be  the perfect addition to our wedding. We had a 3 piece trio from the Capriccio Ensemble perform during our outside wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They traveled a great distance from their location to be a part of our wedding day, and we are so glad they did! Whenever we talked with Natalie, we really felt like she was listening to our needs and visions for our wedding day. The whole process was easy and comfortable. She sent us multiple music samples and suggestions that helped in making our decision to work with them a simple one. We always felt like we were in good hands and that our stresses over wedding planning could be directed elsewhere. She was quick to get back to us, whenever we contacted her, and she made us feel like her top priority. Natalie worked with us to help create a contemporary yet classic playlist that reflected both our tastes and vision for our day. Her expertise and professionalism is unmatched. Natalie and her team truly made our wedding day complete. Thanks, Capriccio Ensemble!

They did the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour! They did an amazing job. I will be honest in saying I was not at the cocktail hour, but people were impressed by it. For the wedding ceremony, the music was absolutely beautiful. And our recessional was Beatles...and it was perfect! Natalie is great to work with.

I used the ensemble for my March 28 wedding! They did a beautiful job...used a strings trio! They did both the ceremony and the cocktail hour. It was a beautiful start to our day and Natalie was wonderful to work with. Many were very impressed, with their professionalism and talent. I highly recommend them.

My husband and I had an amazing experience with Capriccio Ensemble. They seriously were on of my favorite wedding vendors to work with. I had always wanted to have ceremony musicians for our wedding ceremony but wasn't sure we could afford it. I inquired with Natalie about what we wanted for our ceremony and she quickly responded to all of my phone calls and emails. After meeting with Natalie, hearing the music samples and given a quote, we knew right away we wanted Capriccio Ensemble to play for our wedding. I basically only knew what song I wanted to walk down the aisle to and left a lot of the other songs to Natalie's expertise and couldn't have been happier.

As the wedding day approached, Natalie contacted me to confirm all the songs and when the wedding day came, the musicians were on time and played absolutely beautifully (We had a duet: cellist and violinist). Family members still rave to us about how beautiful Capriccio Ensemble played. Being that we were getting married in a Catholic Church, only classical/religious songs were allowed. However, my husband and I loved the song "Bittersweet Symphony" for when we exited the church. Natalie came up with an idea right away and cleverly transitioned a classical song into the "Bittersweet Symphony" song for our exit that not only sounded beautiful but also simply flowed from one song to the other. We were thrilled at how perfect it sounded!

I highly recommend Caprricio Ensemble for your ceremony musicians. They get 5 stars all across the board!!

Carey and Bryan's review from  9/3/10 held at "Flowerfield" in St. James NY/Long Island:
STRING QUARTET (for hospitality and ceremony) - CAPRICCIO ENSEMBLE
A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


I cannot say enough great things about our string quartet. I worked with Natalie and she was a pleasure to work with and made our ceremony a dream come true. I wanted all contemporary music and so I chose In My Life for the parents, officiant, groom and best man to walk down to. The BP walked down to Only Time by Enya and I walked down to All I Want is You by U2. The rendition of my song gave me the goose bumps as I was walking, it was SO BEAUTIFUL. Fun Fact: They are the same quartet that played at Jerry Seinfeld´┐Żs wedding"
