Absolutely Amazing

Everyone was more than I could have asked for! They all were absolutely fantastic, especially Bill (officiant) because he chatted with my fianc茅 for about 20 minutes while he stood in front of the crowd waiting on my arrival. Bill made the ceremony personal and concise per our request and the strings played every song we chose perfectly. The strings choices for seating music were amazing as well. I highly recommend!

Great Experience!

We had a wonderful experience with Charleston Entertainment. We had specific songs we wanted and they were able to accommodate our needs. The musicians were professional, skilled, and such kind people. The music set the tone for the wedding and to kick off our reception!

We highly recommend Charleston Entertainment

We highly recommend Charleston Entertainment. Andrew was exceptional to work with, a true professional. We gave him our expectations for our wedding reception, and he did the rest. They did a remarkable job in creating the perfect music settings. They also were able to set up in two different venues for us seamlessly. Our guests were over the top with complements, truly enjoying the beautiful music and Charleston Entertainment's performance. Thank you, Teresa and Paul
