Anton's Ensemble Soiree were very helpful and friendly. Susan was a pleasure to work with coordinating what I wanted for my ceremony music, since I was clueless as to what I wanted or expected. The musicians even learned a song for my grand entrance and it was beautiful! I wasn't sure that I wanted ceremony mucisians at first but I would definitely recommend it to other brides! It was a beautiful touch!
I had the quartet play as the guest came in, at the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The did an amazing job and they sounded amazing, the guest truly enjoyed having them there. They were so helpful in providing suggestions of songs and were very accommodating. The were on time and professional, I would tell anyone looking for and ensemble to play at an event.
This group performed my ceremony on very short notice during a very busy season. They were able to accommodate all the curve balls I threw at them. Due to illness in the family I had 6 short weeks to plan the wedding of my dreams. They were able to learn new music not normally played as an instrumental piece, they assisted me in every step of establishing a wedding program with lots of great advice. 2 weeks before the wedding I decided to have an a capella vocalist perform "You raise me up" during the ceremony. They went out of their way arriving early just to make sure they could perform the song on the same note as the vocalist. They also performed during the reception and cocktail hour, setting up and breaking down in several locations with no issues. They responded to all my correspondence in a timely fashion and made my ceremony stand out. I would recommend this group to anyone in this area looking for elegant music for any occasion. Professional, prompt, talented and responsive are just a few words that come to mind!! Jennifer Fairbanks
The musicians were professional, experienced and very flexible! They arrived earlier than expected and were able to go over the music in timely manner with the pianist. I had complete confidence and it was so nice to have one less thing to worry about on our daughter's wedding day! The music was lovely and we had many compliments about them. This is the 2nd wedding they played for us. At the first wedding they saved the day by starting when the pianist (a family friend!) had no idea when to start the music for the bride to come down the aisle!
They were fantastic. All my guests complimented me on the wonderful music. I would recommend them without hesitation and will continue to use them for all my special occasions. In scale to 10 they were over the top. Simply great.
They played so beautifully! It sounded wonderful and I couldn't have been more pleased. My family and friends were impressed, and I am very happy that I chosed their services.
Anton's Ensemble Soiree was awesome! They were extremely flexible and willing to work with us on our music selections, even learning new music to play that was special to us. The communication was very effective and prompt. Susan was wonderful to work with and we would recommend this group to everyone. They were fantastic and even better than we imagined!
Very easy to deal with. My wedding was a destination wedding and they made it very easy!
We were very happy with Anton's Ensemble Soiree. I had to communicate with them via email and phone for an out of town wedding. They did exactly what they promised to do at the ceremony, playing all the songs requested. Their music is beautiful! The guests all commented on how much they loved hearing their music. They were very reliable! I would recommend them to anyone.
Anton's Ensemble Soirée are truly fantastic musicians who made our wedding day the most beautiful we could have ever imagined at The Ritz Carlton in Naples FL.
They were so friendly and welcoming of our requests. We wanted special songs that were not on their original playlist, and they were more than willing to make them happen, spending a month learning them and played them so perfectly (Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve for the bridal party entrance, Meditation for the bride, and Firework by Katy Perry for the finale).
They were very punctual, professional, warm and kind hearted. We couldn't have been happier and would recommend them to any Bride & Groom on their special day.

After months of searching for just the right live performers to play for our ceremony and cocktail hour, we were finally referred to Susan and Anton of Ensemble Soireeo - just one week prior to the big day mind you. They could not have been more perfect! Our ceremony and cocktail hour was located on a large boat/yacht and we did a sunset cruise in the Gulf of Mexico. The day of the event we had severe weather warnings so I (as the bride) had a lot of last minute adjustments to make - to say the least. I was not in contact with them, nor did I feel the need to worry - they had put me at total ease that they would show up and do whatever was necessary - and they did.
Here is a small run down:
1. We had them change locations - the ceremony took place on the first level of the boat and then they moved up to the second level for the cocktail hour.
2. They learned a new song just for us (a beautiful string version of Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol)
3. I knew they were very classical, but requested that if possible they play songs that people kinda knew - Wonderful World, Can't Help Falling in Love (they do a great version!) etc... and they did - and it was amazing.
If you haven't gotten the point by now - I loved them, they couldn't have been more perfect, they were quick to resond, very professional, and I would highly recommend them to everyone! I will forever remember and be grateful - I can still here the Chasing Cars song they played during the processsional.. They are simply perfect.
Wonderful musicians. Very accomodating, considering the ceremony was on the beach and they had to perform under less than ideal conditions.....ie. wind, sand, sun, etc. I am very happy that they played at our daughter's wedding.
A beautiful music backdrop was the icing on the cake for our daughter's wedding. Susan & Anton are not only polished performers, they are professional and prompt.
We contacted Anton's Ensemble Soiree in November prior to the March wedding initially by email and a brief phone call allowed us to personally express how we wanted the music to compliment the event.
My wife Kerry and I were married on February 11th, 2012 at The Club at Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs, FL. I can't express enough how fantastic Anton's Ensemble Soirée was at our ceremony. I had called Anton's with only a week left until the wedding and asked them for their help and services. They were so professional during the entire process leading up to the event and they kept our hearts at ease during a stressful time. Their music was beautiful and it made the event that much more special. We highly recommend them! Thank you Anton and to your team of professional musicians for everything!
