Atlantic String Ensemble was everything we could have hoped for. They sounded great on our wedding day. They accommodated all of the special requests that we had and created amazing renditions of the songs that we asked for that weren't in their normal repertoire. We would highly recommend them to our friends and would use them again if we held another event that required a string quartet. Thanks so much Atlantic String Ensemble for making our day that much more special!
