The Velveteen Ensemble was fantastic! Everyone at my wedding loved them and working with Marcel was seamless, stress-free and professional. He is responsive and accommodating and their repertoire is extensive. I recommend them HIGHLY to anyone looking for a professional quartet for their "big" day or any event for that matter where you want a live string quartet.

Our ceremony took place outside. I did not get to hear the music that was played prior to the ceremony but received a good response from all of our guests. I am the mom of bride and thought the processional music was played beautifully as well as the recessional music. The Velveteen Ensemble are flexible and accommodating. The were supposed to be playing under a covered gazebo on the beach but had actually located themselves in the sand with no covering on a very chilly day due to issues with electrical power. Marcel always responded to my emails promptly and was very professional. I would definitely work with them again in the future.

Marcel and The Velveteen Ensemble were very professional and a pleasure to deal with while planning out our wedding ceremony. We were able to select a mix of classical and modern songs to be played during the welcome drinks and our ceremony and their performance was nothing short of perfection. I highly recommend you book them for your wedding as ours was a success.
