WHAT THEY ARE SAYING

John T.
Huge Hit For Ceremony and Cocktails

Huge Hit For Ceremony and Cocktails. Marcel and team were a gigantic hit at the event - we had dozens of people coming up to us raving about the music. They were able to perform anything from classical to pop and also unique soundtrack music from Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. Wish we could listen to them play every weekend!

Highly Recommended!!!

Highly Recommended!!! We can’t thank Marcel and his team enough for making our wedding day so special! Not only is he so kind, professional, and constantly checking in leading to our wedding day. But Marcel and his team are extremely talented and play each song so beautifully! Everyone couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the music was and we are beyond thrilled with how everything went! We highly recommend using his company!!

Incredible Experience!

We cannot thank Marcel and Velveteen Ensemble enough for the music, professionalism and joy they brought to our wedding day. We received so many compliments and most, if not all!, were about the quartet. From the very beginning, Marcel was communicative, helpful and listened to all of our million planning questions. He sent us an incredible list of music the ensemble already knew and even learned 3 new pieces because they were special to us as a couple. And when I say the music was gorgeous, I mean GORGEOUS. Definitely check them out on social media; the sound is incredible. We would book them over and over again and are so glad we have video for years to come! Highly recommend them. Thank you a million times, VE!

We had Velveteen Ensemble for our botanical garden wedding and they made all the difference! 1. Easy to work with, flexible. Always responded promptly to our questions. We decided to have live string music for our ceremony relatively late into wedding and they were able to accommodate 2. Amazing musicians, large repertoire of music to choose from 3. Guests LOVED the music

Wonderful and professional vendor

We worked with Marcel for our wedding at the Palace last October. Marcel was responsive and presented a good amount of options to fit our budget and preferences. The harpist, Liann, was amazing the day of, and our guests were blown away by how well she played. Many thanks to Marcel and Liann!

Beautiful Ensemble

Marcel and his team were great to work with and played incredibly beautiful music throughout our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Leading up to the wedding, Marcel was very responsive and invited us to some upcoming shows so that we could experience the music before our wedding day. On the day of, everyone raved about how great the Velveteen Ensemble was. I would absolutely recommend hiring them!

Simply Excellent, Best Special Touch for Wedding

Simply Excellent, Best Special Touch for Wedding. I highly recommend Marcel & the velveteen ensemble for your wedding. I was on the fence if I should hire a strings group for my wedding, but finally decided I would love that extra touch for the ceremony & cocktail hour since we had a DJ for the reception. I hired them sort of last minute, and they jumped right in! I was impressed by the long list of songs he sent me, both classical and modern. I appreciated that I had the option to send requests, but also that they would make their own recommendations, which I appreciated and loved for the ceremony. Very professional, easy to work with, and added the special, magical, moment to such an exciting day. Highly recommend!

Super flexible ensemble!

Velveteen Ensemble was PHENOMENAL! They were super flexible about learning a few new pieces we requested and they played exactly what we wanted them to play for our wedding day. They have a huge list of repertoire and their pop music is incredible. Thanks so much!!
