    Excellent!

    Austin and his team of musicians are easy to work with, helpful, professional, and talented! I always dreamed of having strings play for my wedding ceremony and there isn't anyone that can do it better than Coastal Chamber!

    Hands Down, YES!

    just now
    I’m not sure where to begin. Today as I look through our wedding photos I think back on just how thankful I am for choosing Coastal Chamber Musicians. Not only was Austin attentive, communicative and a delight to work with, his craft is incredible. We chose to go with the string duet of Violin and Cello for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. At first we were a bit hesitant about choosing a duet for such a small, intimate sized wedding, we were concerned it could be too overpowering ... it was not, it was such a beautiful addition to our special day. We selected a handful of our favorite upbeat love songs and I can’t help but smile at the thought of hearing them played throughout the evening. I’m so so so happy that we chose such a classy addition to our wedding. If you’re looking for an excellent, professional musician to compliment your wedding day look no further, Please do yourself a favor and reach out to Austin. Forever grateful for him and his team.

    Coastal Chamber Musicians Elevated Our Big Day!

    They helped to create an incredible atmosphere for our guests to enjoy themselves. We are so grateful for Coastal Chambers for stepping in at the last minute when another string musician couldn’t make it. They did an amazing job and we are so happy that they were there to play for our ceremony and cocktail hour! They are very professional and talented, I highly recommend them to anyone looking to elevate their wedding experience for guests!

    Single Violinist was amazing

    We did a single violinist for our ceremony and he was great. The pastor said he was the best he has ever heard. Pastor even tried to recruit him to play for his church. Austin was great and easy to get in contact with.

    Outstanding

    Coastal chambers musicians played string instruments for my prelude and ceremony this past weekend at my wedding. Unfortunately being the bride I really didn’t get to hear much which I’m sad about because every single guest that I talked to said the music at my ceremony was so beautiful and the musicians were so passionate they could’ve sat there and listen to it for hours. Austin Was great at helping me to figure out how many songs for the processional and his suggestions for specific pieces for different times during the wedding. I felt like they far exceeded my expectations per everybody is reviews that they gave me the at the reception and the days following. Thank you Austin and coastal chambers musicians for making my wedding something straight out of a movie!

    Wedding Violinist

    We requested a violinist for our wedding. We had to move the location last minute and they had no issue at all. Violinist was super friendly and did an awesome job! I highly recommend them. Thanks!

    Excellent String

    Austin from Coastal Chamber Musicians was a pleasure to work with. Many of my guests complimented the duo to me during and after my wedding. We had originally booked for May but had to change our wedding date. They were accommodating. With little instruction Austin understood exactly the vibe we wanted and played the perfect pieces. We used CCM for the ceremony, cocktail hour and as music for the reception. Have to say we were very happy with our selection!!

    Fantastic to work with

    We had a small wedding at a intimate venue and Austin and Audra were amazing. They worked with us since we only required their services for our ceremony. They were spectacular and dressed perfectly and very classy. We are so pleased to have acquired their services. They made our intimate eloping a Wedding and Austin was very accommodating. He responded to us very quickly and picked up the calls even on weekends and at night. We are happy to recommend them to anyone who is interested in a big wedding or a small ceremony. I am grateful for them for being a part of our Wedding and they are amazing to work with. They sounded amazing. They worked with us on pricing too since we only needed them for our ceremony. It was beautiful sounds at an amazing venue. Can’t even imagine not having Austin and Audra there.

    If you want an Elegant event...

    you need to call Coastal Chamber Musicians. From the start Austin Fitzhenry understood what we needed and how we wanted our guests to feel. When the pandemic caused us to rework everything Austin was still with us. The group was easy to work with. Responsive and responsible. Lots of variety to their repertoire. We enjoyed beautiful music at the intimate outdoor ceremony and then again during an intimate reception. Live music added so much to the mood. It was all we could ask for and more!

    Played beautifully, amazing selections, easy to work with!

    From the very beginning, Austin was so easy to work with! The musical selections were extensive and we felt like we had so many options to choose from to customize our big day perfectly. Once the wedding day arrived, Coastal Chamber Musicians was prompt, professional, and played beautifully. They even stayed late to play for cocktail hour, after our other vendor was late setting up. Can't recommend them enough!

    Dealing with Austin was a pleasure. He was very responsive. He was also extremely helpful with coordinating based on the size of our small, non-traditional wedding.

    Exceptional!

    I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful group! Coastal Chamber Musicians provided the music for our daughters wedding in October on HIlton Head Island. They played for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner. They played Classical and Spiritual for the ceremony and a mix of Jazz, Pop, and Rock- both classic and new-for the cocktail hour and dinner. Our guests enjoyed the music so much and were surprised at the many genres of music they covered! Austin was great and helped me with selections for the ceremony. They have an extensive song list and asked if there were any special requests that we wanted them to play for our event. They were punctual and professional and we were thrilled that they provided the music for our family’s special day! We hope we have a chance to have them play for us again in the future!

    Great addition to a beautiful ceremony

    We went with Coastal Chamber at the recommendation of my planner after my mom decided she would love to have live music for our outdoor ceremony.
    Austin was super responsive and helpful with ceremony selections. And my MIL was so excited to hear Beauty and the Beast played when she was walked down the aisle. My dad also thought we had some of the coolest ceremony music and everyone commented on how much it added to the ceremony!

We wanted music that was elegant, but with also modernness to the music selection. Austin was great to work with. He was kind, professional, and responded to my emails very quickly.

    Fantastic Trio

    We hired Coastal Chamber Musicians to play at the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception of my daughter’s wedding at Palmetto Bluff and they knocked it out of the park! Doing business with them could not have been easier or a better value, but the best part was that they are incredibly talented people who give every evidence of absolutely loving what they do. I love classical music but let’s face it, sometimes the retired orchestra players that are at weddings can be a bit stodgy. There is nothing stodgy about Coastal Chamber Musicians – they are young and vibrant, their musicianship is tremendous, and their repertoire is extensive with lots of Celtic, pop, jazz and classical choices. In my book, they were the rock stars of the event! My only regret is that it is over. If anyone reading this review wants to invite me to their wedding to listen again to Coastal Chamber Musicians, please do! Hey, I’ll bring a gift!
