Our FAVORITE part of our wedding day!!!!
Hiring Carolina Music Planner was truly the best decision we made for our wedding day! Beginning with my initial phone call with Megan, she was full of so much energy and passion, we had no doubt we wanted to work with them. She was extremely responsive, helpful and accommodating throughout the entire planning process which is invaluable to a bride-to-be. We chose a harp and cello duo and simply cannot put into words how incredibly talented and wonderful these two ladies are! The element of beauty and elegance their music added to our special day is indescribable. We received so many compliments from our guests who not only loved their music but felt they fit in like family. We cannot thank Megan and Michelle enough for everything!! xo :)Sent on 10/10/2019
Carolina Music Planner's reply:Aw Brandy, I appreciate you so much!! I honestly felt the same with you and your honored guests/family. Such an amazing group of people- beautiful inside and out. It was a privilege getting to know you over the past few months, and I cannot wait to catch up next time you're in Asheville (mean it!). I look forward to keeping in touch! Congrats again to you both. XO

String duo & DJ
Carolina Music Planner provided a cellist, violinist, & DJ for our wedding this month. The string duo was beautiful and the DJ & his wife were fun and kept our crowd dancing most of the night. They stayed on cue with our timeline and were flexible with the details. We had a specific playlist that we had been curating for a year that he drew from in a way that made sense. Megan was easy to communicate with and made the process less stressful with questionnaires to fill out regarding our preferences.Sent on 09/29/2019
