About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Hi, I'm Julie Paradies, first violinist. Our experience of 25 years will set your mind at ease! No other group has the joyful trumpet fanfare to announce the bride. I’m Concertmistress of 2 orchestras: the Pinellas Community Orchestra (Art Hansuld), and the Suncoast Symphony (John Bannon). AND I play with the Tampa Bay Symphony (Mark Sforzini). My violin is Italian-made, and has a warm tone that carries well outdoors. No need for amplification! For your wedding or event, choose the ensemble: solo, duo, trio, or quartet. You can choose the string quartet, or our unique quartet of trumpet/violin/viola/cello. Trumpeter Jim Paradies will play a joyful trumpet fanfare to announce the bride's walk down the aisle. Prices depend on number of musicians and hours (one hour for the ceremony, or two hours for ceremony and cocktail hour). We begin Prelude music 15 minutes before the walk down the aisle. My husband Jim plays with a brass quintet: two trumpets/horn/trombone/tuba. I ALSO TEACH VIOLIN LESSONS-- BOTH SUZUKI METHOD AND TRADITIONAL VIOLIN.

Review by Isabella F.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on April 7, 2023From Seffner, FL

My husband and I hired Julie and her team to play violin and cello at our outdoor wedding and wow did they exceed expectations! Everyone was in awe of their talent! Julie was soo nice, professional and punctual! They brought elegance to their performance and I am beyond happy with their service. Highly recommend them to anyone with a musical need, can’t go wrong!

Isabella, thank you for this wonderful review! Your wedding at Ever After Farms Flower Barn was so intimate and relaxed!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on March 13, 2023From Clearwater, FL

This performance was for my mom's birthday celebration at her memory care facility! My mom thoroughly enjoyed the music and the music selections! Julie was easy to work with and made the event smooth, even though I was coordinating it from several states away! Thank you!!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on January 14, 2023From Saint Petersburg, FL

Our daughter's wedding was so beautiful with the music from The Paradies Ensemble! The music was wonderful and added so much to the ceremony. Julie was wonderful to work with and made the whole process so easy. Would definitely want to hire The Paradies Ensemble for our next big event. Also, the entire Bash process was wonderful from start to finish and being able to find the best string trio for our daughter's wedding. Thank you.

The Paradies Ensemble Duo, Trio or Quartet:

Your daughter’s wedding at the Sunken Gardens was beautiful! Chelsea, George and I were happy to play for you.
