Perfect for our ceremony!
We chose a string trio for our ceremony and our cocktail hour. They played beautifully and I loved their contemporary selection that they played during our cocktail hour. I decided on traditional music for our ceremony. I highly recommend and Lauren was amazing to work with and wanted to make sure they provided exactly what I wanted! Thank you!!Sent on 02/07/2020

I was late in coordinating music for my wedding and Lauren could not have been easier to work with! She immediately sent over some options and a quote and we went with a cellist and violinist. I appreciated that she sent along a large list of music options and suggestions to make the process even easier. The music was beautiful!Sent on 11/19/2019

We recently worked with Palmetto Strings for our October 2019 wedding in DeBordieu. From start to finish, they were professional and super easy to work with. Lauren was so responsive throughout the entire planning process and made everything as easy as possible.Sent on 11/05/2019
The day of the wedding we were thrown a curveball with a tropical storm blowing through, but the string trio was flexible and still provided the best music! We hired them for the ceremony and cocktail hour. They even agreed to stay an extra thirty minutes for the extended cocktail hour due to the weather.
I would 100% recommend working with Palmetto Strings for your wedding!
Palmetto Strings's reply:Thanks for your kind words Lauren and we're glad we could be a part of our wedding day! Our trio really enjoyed performing for everyone! Best wishes to you both!
Always our go-to for ceremony strings! Reliable, professional, amazing musicians! We love working with Palmetto Strings!
As a DJ, I am able to play ANYTHING the bride and groom request, and by the original artist. However, when it comes to live music for the ceremony, you can't beat live strings! Sure, mine will sound like the original artist because I play the "original artists''" work. There is something to be said about having actual stringed instruments playing for your ceremony. When you choose to do just that, I recommend Palmetto Strings!
Palmetto Strings... WOW! We are completely blown away by them every time! They are phenomenal musicians! Each wedding we have the privilege of working with them at, they pull out something new. They can perform classical music without missing a note, then play something new, modern and unexpected like Coldplay or The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Everything they play is absolutely beautiful. They are also super nice and wonderful to work with!
