Wow! Absolutely amazing! Kris and Band of Gold were one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! So many of our guests commented multiple times on how perfect the band was. My husband and I are constantly reminiscing about how much fun we had at the reception. Kris was so easy to work with and responded to my emails very quickly. The best part was the band learning a song that my husband had written for me and surprising him by playing it as our first dance song. That moment was so beautiful and so perfect. It was such a blessing to have them be a part of that special moment. The musicians are so talented and the singers are amazing. I could write for hours on how much we loved Band of Gold! You will not be disappointed with them!!!

We couldn't be more happy with our choosing of Band of Gold for our wedding reception. They came from Atlanta to perform in Charleston and they rocked our world for nearly 6 hours. They kept everyone on the dance floor and made the party a memorable one. Their sound is amazing but what I enjoyed most about them is how great they were to work with. They are such great guys/and gal and Kris pulls everything together and is exceptional at running the business side of things. You can spend $6-$8k on a band for your wedding or you can pay half and let these guys blow all of them away. Thanks again Band of Gold! You rocked it!

Band of Gold played our ceremony music during our wedding and their 5-piece band played during our wedding reception. Band of Gold was so easy to work with before our wedding and really seemed to care about our vision. They are so flexible and really take the time to create a perfect song list for each personal event. They have many options of DJ, band, and ceremony music, and they also have an extensive list of songs from many decades. We chose Band of Gold after hearing them play at a friend's wedding and knew we had to book them as well. They kept our guests on the dance floor the whole night and everyone had a blast. We would definitely recommend Band of Gold to others and we would use them again in the future!

Orpheus And Aphrodite is one of a kind! We used them for both the band and photography and were so thankful that we did!

First, Band of Gold was one of the best bands I have ever heard at a wedding. I was not sure what I wanted played, all I knew was I wanted the crowd (both young and old) to dance and have fun. I left it in Kris's hands and he took care of everything. Everyone was dancing and having a great time, including my 82 year old grandmother who Kris took the time to personally serenade. I requested a few songs for our first and last dance and the band learned them perfectly making those moments so special for us. For days after the wedding, we had all our friends and family commenting on how great the band was.

We also booked the photography with Terrilyn at Orpheus And Aphrodite. She was amazing, capturing every moment of our wedding to make sure that we have the pictures of a lifetime. She took the time to learn our families and the most important shots for us. She made the entire night seamless while still capturing every moment. She was so easy to work with during the wedding and was put everyone at ease. She also had a sneak peak of the pictures up within 48 hours of the event. I was STUNNED to see the pictures,I literally felt like I was looking at a magazine. I cannot wait to see the rest of my pictures because I know I will never be able to choose between them for our book.

We would recommend Orpheus And Aphrodite over and over again. Working with both Kris and Terrilyn is the way to go. They make the whole wedding process so easy by leading you through all of the things you need to think about. We also live out of state and they accommodated our schedule every time we were in town. We can’t say enough about these two and can’t say thank them enough for making our day so special!
