This is the Belle Arte String Quartet, right?  Well, yes, technically.  But if you want just a trio at your wedding, you can have that too!

A trio is a string ensemble consisting of two violins and a cello or a violin, a viola, and a cello–whichever suits the music best!  The sound may seem like it would be lacking with a violin or viola to fill the fourth space, but the musicality of the trio and the arrangement fills the parts and the space just as well.

Traditionally, small stringed-instrument ensembles consist of a quartet, so most music is written for a quartet, but music can be transcribed for a trio instead.  It is flexible!

You might want to consider a trio for a number of reasons including a tight venue space, a smaller budget, an intimate ceremony/cocktail hour/reception, etc.  The trio brings all the same excellence and delightful as a full quartet!
