Elegant, Heartwarming Performance posted 5/28/2013
As a musician myself, I was very choosy when engaging a group for my daughter’s ceremony. After much searching, Classical Charleston won me over. I worked with Andrew and he was very responsive and knowledgeable. The string trio performed for the prelude, ceremony music, and postlude. They did a beautiful job. Thanks, Andrew and team, for making our family’s day extraordinary.
This made my ceremony posted 10/21/2011
We did a beach ceremony with a reception at a rental house. (It was a small wedding.) The string duet was the perfect addition to make our ceremony feel perfect. I wish that I had a little more time to enjoy the music, I was a little busy with the whole getting married part of it, but what I did hear was absolutely lovely. Andrew was so easy to work with, once I had the date set with him there was nothing else that I needed to worry about. If you are looking for that special touch for your ceremony, look no further!
String Duo posted 10/7/2013
My husband told me early on in our dating that there is something powerful that happens in his soul when he hears the violin and cello played together…I made a mental note of that and it was one of the first things I began to research when we got engaged.
I could not have imagined a better string duo for our wedding ceremony than Classical Charleston. As the bride, I of course didn’t hear any of the prelude, and was a BIT distracted during the ceremony to really pay attention to anything other than the face of my husband-to-be- but in watching and listening to the video recording after the fact, I am can definitely say with full confidence that the music was absolutely phenomenal. CLASSIC for sure; elegant, professional, worth every penny, stunning. Wedding worthy!!!

Beautiful Music and Wonderful Service posted 11/21/2013(updated 11/22/2013)
Classical Charleston provided BEAUTIFUL music for our wedding ceremony. We had an outdoor ceremony next to the Ashley River, which their performances made even more picturesque. Although we did not originally budget for “live” music for our ceremony, their music was worth every last penny!It was so elegant and the musicians were all very talented. The great thing with Classical Charleston (and what made us choose them over another company), was the fact that we could “preview” actual recordings of their performances via their website, so we knew exactly the quality of music we would receive on our wedding day. Without a doubt…Classical Charleston should be your top pick for live ceremony music!

Andrew and Tomas from Classical Charleston were the perfect string duo to play at our outdoor wedding. The music was outstanding and Andrew was professional and helpful through the entire planning process. I highly recommend Classical Charleston.

Fantastic posted 6/11/2013
Classical Charleston did a wonderful job playing our ceremony music, as well as some more modern/jazzy selections during our cocktail hour. They were easily heard over the din of 170 guests in an outdoor venue, and we received many complements about how lovely the music was and how friendly all of the musicians were. They are very reasonably priced as well and have a diverse selection of music for ceremonies and receptions/cocktail hours. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Simply the best posted 1/23/2013
Soon after I got engaged, I attended one of the Charleston bridal expos and heard the sweet sounds of Classical Charleston. I have wanted string musicians at my wedding since I was a little girl, and as soon as I heard Andrew and the guys play Air by Bach, I started crying in front of hundreds of people at the expo! I knew then I just HAD to have them play at my wedding. They absolutely lived up to my expectations and their talent is truly moving. Andrew is very quick to answer any questions you might have and is very professional to work with. Thank you Andrew and Tomas!
Beautiful touch to the ceremony and cocktail hr! posted 9/28/2011
Andrew Mille was so helpful and even met with my husband and I to make a personalized ceremony play list. They are very talented musicians and so easy and fun to work with.
Great! posted 10/6/2013
Classical Charleston did a great job providing the music during my wedding and cocktail hour. They were very patient and understanding as I hemmed-and-hawed about music selections. Ultimately, I just gave them a few specifics and the general feel we wanted and they did a great job. Highly recommend.
Perfect Duo posted 8/25/2013
Loved having the cello and violin. Perfect touch to our ceremony.
Great Ceremony Music posted 7/9/2013
Classical Charleston is a great choice for ceremony musicians or any other classical music needs you may have. Andrew was very professional, nice, and easy to communicate with. They did a great job!
Loved the music choices posted 6/21/2013
I had a string trio play at my ceremony, and they sounded absolutely beautiful. When “Moon River” began playing for seating of the mothers, I actually got completely teary eyed. They have a wonderful selection of both traditional and non-traditional (I used the latter) songs. I would definitely recommend!
Spectacular posted 4/4/2013
I had the string duo perform at my outdoor ceremony and they were wonderful. The guests thoroughly enjoyed all the prelude music, and I loved that they had a variety of selections in their repertoire. They were wonderful additions and I would highly recommend their services to anyone.

Andrew Mille from Classical Charleston was very prompt in responding to emails, and we were able to conduct all of our business this way (as my husband & I recently moved away from Charleston). I never actually spoke to Andrew, but he met briefly with my husband just prior to the ceremony, and the music was perfect as was the timing. We got many compliments from our guest regarding the ceremony music and their skill. I would not hesitate to select Classical Charleston again for another event!
There are no words… posted 10/31/2011
This was my ‘special’ expense for our wedding/reception. I really wanted a string duo and I could not have picked a better company to provide this service. They were excellent from the first meeting to the last note played. I remember standing in my dressing room at the wedding ceremony location and hearing them play the first note and I felt so at peace and happy. They were that beautiful. Professional and extremely talented, I encourage everyone to meet Andrew and use this service if you are even thinking about this style of music for your ceremony and/or reception. You will not be disappointed.

The string quartet made my wedding ceremony so special. Everybody talked about how great they were. I like the fact they can do some nontraditional pieces and Andrew is very easy to work with and easy to contact.
Amazingly perfect! posted 11/14/2010
We have a single violinist, Tomas Jakubek, play for our ceremony and cocktail hour.
He was PHENOMENAL!!!
I highly recommend working with the folks at Classical Charleston
Loved them! posted 10/12/2010
We had a string trio play before the ceremony as guests were arriving and then for the ceremony. They were awesome! We were so glad we decided to have them play! Many of our guests commented how great they were and what a nice touch it was to have them playing as people arrived.
