Classic Wedding Ensembles was AMAZING! Our wedding ceremony couldn't have been more perfect! We wanted all modern/new music at our ceremony, and from the first call we had with Lynn, it was clear that she just understood our vision. CWE learned two songs for us (that they played perfectly!) and, when Lynn learned what song I wanted to walk down the aisle to (Brown Eyed Girl), she suggested that we edit the music so that all the "good parts" to the song would be played in the short time it took me to walk down the aisle. It was perfect! The music was absolutely amazing, and we are still getting compliments about it! Cannot recommend CWE enough!

I worked directly with Lynn to coordinate the ceremony music for our wedding. She was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and very prompt with her communication. She mailed us a CD of song samples and a full list of songs that they can play before, during, and after the ceremony. We were extremely pleased with the talent of Classic Wedding Ensembles and highly recommend them for anyone looking for string music for their ceremony or reception!

Very talented group of professionals! The music was crisp and flawless. I was shocked with how well it filled the chapel where the ceremony took place. Couldn’t have imagined my wedding ceremony any other way!
Classic Wedding Ensembles is wonderful! A true touch of class for any event!

We highly recommend this group and love every opportunity we have to work together with them!
Lynn and her crew showed up to Deerfield Inn for one of this summer's wedding I was coordinating and designing flowers for. They were on time and played beautifully. Lynn was so easy to talk with and coordinate the timing with. They played every choice incredibly beautiful, with feeling and honestly it was just perfect. Turns out that I knew the one of the musicians. He's seen me as a lighting design for theatre before!! You can't go wrong with these very talented musicians!!
