Atlantic String Ensemble provided the music for my ceremony and they were amazing!!! The songs for the processional, bridal entrance and processional were exactly as I had hoped for! They were really wonderful throughout the entire planning of the wedding. The owner promptly responded to all of my questions and made the planning process stress free! Music was very important to me for my wedding and they were even better than I could have hoped for. I work as an event producer for a catering company so I've seen hundreds of musicians over the years and Atlantic String Ensemble was the best I'd ever seen or worked with! You will not be disappointed if you book them.

I can't praise enough the amazing job that the Atlantic string ensemble did at my wedding!!! I was so impressed with their amazing skills, played beautifully the songs I chose for my wedding. Their were punctual, and very professional. Ellie Bunker was amazing at answering all my questions in a timely manner. I've got so many complements on how beautiful the music was, that even my venue coordinator asked me for their contact info :) I'd highly recommend hiring Atlantic string ensemble if you want the BEST music for your event!
