Choosing A Wedding Venue

There are many things to decide when planning your wedding. While many countless hours can go into planning the minute details of making your special day perfect, it is often the surprises that make the day the most memorable. We would like to share one with you that happened at the venue pictured above.

Recently, the Innocenti Strings recently performed at the Deering Estate in Cutler Bay, Florida. It was a beautiful day and perfect for an outdoor wedding - sunny, with a cool breeze coming off of the ocean. The musicians arrived ahead of the guests and were treated to this spectacular view. It was too much for us to resist taking a picture of the setting.

The bride and groom could hardly wait to walk down the aisle and could not stop staring at one another when they finally were able to meet in front of their guests. During the vows, there was a sudden noise in the water and we all turned to see from where the sound originated. A pair of manatees had surfaced right by the ceremony and were quietly floating in the water watching the proceeding! Everyone laughed and snapped a few pictures. It was an unplanned moment that made the day most memorable.

Whatever venue you choose for your wedding, there will always be the little things that are unexpected that will give you some of the best memories of your wedding day.

We wish you the best in the upcoming year at your wedding.

Happy New Years from Innocenti Strings!

Greetings and Happy New Years!

All of the musicians and performers at Innocenti Strings would like to wish you happy holidays and wish you a great new year.

As we look forward to 2012, there are many things to think about when planning your wedding. Music plays a very important role whether it is the song you have always wanted to hear as you walk down the aisle, or background cocktail music. We have over ten years of experience and can help you plan every musical detail at your wedding.

Looking forward to your wedding this year, as part of the wedding planning process, we would like to offer you a few points of advice for planning the music at your upcoming wedding.

1) Think of a song that has meant a lot to your or your family over the years. Pick whatever comes to mind first; from Beethoven to Disney. As performers we are happy to offer you whatever you would like. Please see our listing at We are also happy to arrange a special song to you. Setting the mood with the first song or arrangement that comes to mind will give you an unforgettable walk down the aisle.

2) Think of the mood that you would like to set for your wedding. Caterers, florists, or bridal dress consultants will all ask you for the theme or color scheme for your wedding and music should be no different. While it may seem intimidating to pick a "musical theme" for your wedding we are happy to assist you. It can be as simple as wanting the music at your wedding to be "romantic" or "modern" and we are able to take it from there for you. We have several hundred musical selections to choose from and are always just a phone call or e-mail away for any question you may have.

3) Talk to your family to see if there are songs that are important to them you would like included in the wedding. Every season we perform selections that mean a lot to a relative or friend of the family. Having a specific song requested by someone close to you in the wedding party or in the audience will help everyone feel included and will add a special, personal, element to the ceremony that will mean a great deal to you.

Again, we wish you the best with your wedding plans in the New Year and please let us know how we can help you make the music at your wedding meaningful and memorable.

Thank you,

The Innocenti Strings
