    The Palmetto Strings were fantastic!

    We booked a string duo for our ceremony and cocktail hour and it was absolutely perfect. We were able to pick every song we wanted to hear and Lauren was a pleasure to work with.

    Highlight of the ceremony

    My sister set up the surprise “Love Actually” ending at the end of my wedding ceremony with Palmetto Strings, working with them and my planner without my husband and I having a clue! They pulled off an amazing surprise with 5 choir singers, 4 musicians, and my sister popping up with the trombone. It was incredible. I was crying happy tears of shock and pure happiness and was overwhelmed by it all. They were amazing!! It was certainly one of the biggest highlights of the night!

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!
