    The Perfect “Wow” Factor to a Wedding

    Hiring the BSCE for our ceremony and cocktail hour was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Paul and Kris were a dream to work with. To say they were “accommodating” is an understatement. They arranged a special version of my one of my grandmother’s favorite songs to play for her at cocktail hour AND they arranged the most gorgeous version of my favorite Rolling Stones song, which my dad walked me down the aisle to. They went above and beyond all expectations – the perfect “wow” factor for any wedding.

    Worth Every Penny!

    Booking the Brass String Chamber Ensemble was undeniably one of the best decisions my wife and I made in our wedding planning. We were thoroughly impressed with the skills of all their musicians, especially the Trumpet player, Paul, who worked with us to select the perfect program of classical pieces. When the ensemble began “Trumpet Voluntary” it set a triumphant and glorious tone for the rest of the ceremony and the entire day. If you’re wondering whether it’s worth it to hire professional musicians for your wedding, I can say without a doubt that it was well worth it for us!

There are over 2,300 wedding vendors in Illinois, most of which I personally know and/or have heard of. I can honestly say that there are a number of vendors that don't provide the service that BSCE does to their clients. They have went above and beyond to service our clients and I am honored that BSCE is one of many fabulous partners!

I have had the priviledge of working with Paul Semanic at many weddings. He and his gifted colleagues bring a sense of professionalism and warmth to each occasion. They understand how to craft their music to the spirit of the bride and groom
