Ceremony Music

We had a string trio for before and during our ceremony and it was one of my favorite parts of the day! They did such an amazing job and helped make our day feel even more special. We had listened to samples online prior to our event; however, it was even better in person. They were so talented and we are so thankful they were able to help us celebrate on our wedding day!

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.

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!
