From the Wedding Wire:

Daniela played the violin at our wedding on September 6, 2014. She was extremely accomodating and easy to work with! I gave her a list of songs that we had chosen and she assured me that she knew them. I never got to meet with her prior to the wedding and she never met with any of the other musicians we had (organist and soloist) but you would never know! She played beautifuly and sounded amazing with the organist and soloist even though they had never met before our wedding. She showed up early and knew exactly what to do and where to be! If you're looking for a violinist for any event, especially a wedding, I would highly recommend Daniela!

Daniela was great to work with for our wedding in August, 2013. She was extremely responsive, professional and accommodating. She worked with her pianist to learn Train's "Marry Me" for my initial walk down the aisle. Then, on the way back, we had another song "1,000 Years" that we requested to be sped up a bit and she was able to do this as well.

Overall, I would highly recommend Daniela and Di Arte.

I had Di Arte play a duo of violin & cello for my wedding ceremony. I had so many people tell me what an excellent touch that was. They played beautifully and were very professional. I've already recommended Di Arte to several people.

Daniella played violin at our outdoor garden ceremony along with one of her colleagues on the keyboard. It was breathtaking and truly make the ceremony what I had always envisioned. Daniella was wonderful to work with and really knows her music and various selections. I highly recommend!

We had a violinist, bassist and piano player for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I worked primarily with Daniela and it was a delight! She was sweet, patient and so helpful! Our guests thoroughly enjoyed their music during the cocktail hour. They did an excellent job!

I had a violinist and a cellist. They played beautifully! I had my pastor's wife sing - she gave them the music the week before, never able to practice with them, and it was perfect! I would definitely recommend them! They were very inexpensive as well.

I have always envisioned getting proposed to in the most romantic way in front of all my family and friends. On May 22, 2016 my boyfriend popped the question just like I had dreamed in a beautifully decorated forest preserve in front of all of our loved ones. What made the moment so special was the music playing in the background. Di Arte Entertainment played so beautifully. Daniela played the violin that had everyone tearing up. I would highly recommend Di Arte Entertainment to anyone that is looking for a violinist for any special event. They will be kept in memories that will last a lifetime!
