In Part 1 we cover: When Danielle first began playing the violin & how she got started with weddings? The styles of music Divina Strings can accommodate? What are the things that couples should be looking for? The types of ensembles that Divina Strings offers? How couples should approach their budget when it comes to hiring musicians? Why it’s important to hire a professional?

It’s significant, it’s really big & I’m always adding to that list and people love that. They want to hear the music that they know and they want it to be played to their family and friends but they don’t want to have the recording and the words played along. They want it to be the instrumental version of their favorite song.” “Every couple is different so every single wedding is different. They are never the same at all.” “Romance is that string quartet sound.” “I want to show that love and have that magic happen even for people that I don’t know. We can all be touched by music & have that connection together.” “You are planning a wedding based on your priorities.” “If you want to make sure that when you walk down the aisle that the right piece is playing, that people are going to be paying attention, that you know have played at weddings before, and you want that magic to happen on your wedding day then you hire a professional.” At Kenneth Cooper Films our passion is weaving together compelling stories with timeless and elegant visuals.
