A touch of elegance
Meg performed at our wedding on Nov. 30 at Journeyman Distillery. We are so grateful that she performed at our wedding. First, her instrument is beautiful and really added a touch of elegance in our rustic venue. Second, the music set the tone for our ceremony. We wanted to hear the theme from The Goonies for our recessional song. Well, Meg went above and beyond to learn how to play it - just for us. We requested that song because we got engaged in Cannon Beach, Oregon - the location of the final scene in that movie. It was so meaningful to hear that song as we made our way through the room for the first time as husband and wife.Sent on 12/14/2019

All I dreamed of ...
Meg was an absolute joy to work with. She beautifully played all the music that was special to me. She was flexible and professional. My only regret is that we didn’t have her play longer.Sent on 12/20/2020

I attended a bridal event and heard Meg's harp throughout the entranceway. Her songs were so playful and elegant. I had never thought to have a harp at the wedding. I started talking to her at the event, and I knew from then I would have to hire her for our day! Meg had a meeting prewedding to discuss details and gave helpful tips. On the day of the wedding, Meg showed up early and was ready to play! Her accompaniment was so beautiful and fit the theme perfectly. Meg went above and beyond and even learned the Game of Thrones theme song. She was the easiest external vendor we worked with. Thanks Meg!!!Sent on 03/06/2021
