    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 :)

    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.

    Beautiful music, Wonderful People

    I would definitely recommend Carolina Music Planner to any future brides! Meghan was so helpful in planning what songs to have played at the ceremony and was very responsive to all my questions I had. They also had awesome playlists to choose from for our cocktail hour. They were very professional and an amazing addition to our wedding day!

    Seamless Communication, Beautiful Music!

    Of all our vendors for our August 10, 2019 wedding, Megan was the most responsive and helpful in her communication. She worked with us to create a tailored music package that included beautiful string arrangements for our ceremony and cocktail hour and a dance band for our reception. Her prices were fair and she was respectful of our budget. It was so nice to be able to have one point of contact for all of the wedding music. We are so thankful we met Megan and can't recommend her team at Carolina Music Planners enough!!

    Katie, thank you so much for these kind words! It was a pleasure working with you and Quinn. I am so glad that we were able to find a live entertainment package that fit what you were looking for! (Also, selfishly, I'm SO glad I was able to personally play your event. The venue was stunning, and meeting you face to face was icing on the cake!)

    Incredible to work with!

    We could not have had a more positive and stress-free experience working with Carolina Music Planner! I was so impressed with their perfect balance of professionalism and easy-going communication. They were so kind to respond to our vision for our wedding ceremony by tailoring everything to our preferences, and offering multiple options. I would recommend them in a heartbeat, as they brought so much talent and beauty to our day!

    I HIGHLY recommend Carolina Music Planner!

    Working with Carolina Music Planner for my wedding was a great experience! We booked a cello/violin duo for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Megan exceeded my expectations and was extremely communicative and helpful in the planning process, and Megan & Teresa's music was beautiful. I would highly recommend Carolina Music Planner for any event.

    Incredible

    I cannot say enough positive things about Megan and the crew!! We had a quick turn around on our wedding with a little less than three months to plan! Nora and Teresa were nothing short of fantastic, and magical! I cannot recommend them enough for any function you may be hosting you will not be disappointed!

    Magical touch!

    Carolina Music Planner was perfect for our garden wedding! We definitely didn’t think strings would be in our budget but they are so reasonably priced and the atmosphere their music adds is value way beyond what you’ll pay. On top of it they were so easy to work with and seemed genuinely excited to share in our wedding day. So happy we made the decision to book with them! Even a month after our wedding we’re still having people tell us what a special touch the strings were! Thank you, ladies!!!

    Wonderful and Accommodating

    When we were planning our wedding Carolina Music Planner found us a wonderful selection of musicians within our price-range. We were extremely happy with our choice, Alexa Rose. She was very professional and personable and we couldn't have asked for a better experience to make our day just that much more perfect.

    Megan was so enthusiastic in helping us plan our ceremony music and helping us pick the best instruments for the venue and style of the wedding. Her team performed wonderfully, and kept guests entertained even when our ceremony started 30 minutes late! Loved working with her and the other musicians.

    I highly recommend Carolina Music Planner! We booked them last minute and Megan scrambled to do everything she could to find us a musician for our big day! I had a very unique song request for the bridal march and the musician followed through without a hitch, and I couldn't have asked for more! Their music selection is vast and they can play just about anything you can imagine, I definitely recommend booking CMP as soon as possible, and I know that if I ever needed a musician for a large event again, these guys are my top pick! Thank you guys so very much for making my special day sound so amazing!!

    Megan and her trio were a great choice for our wedding ceremony. She was super responsive during the planning process and made that part of wedding planning a breeze. They were very professional, showed up on time, and were very accommodating with our song requests. Overall, the trio did an excellent job! We also had pianist, Brian Turner, come out for our rehearsal dinner through Megan/Carolina Music Planner. He did a fantastic job and kept the dinner going smoothly with his jazz music in the background.

    Megan was seriously the best choice for music for our wedding ceremony/ cocktail hour. She was easy to get a hold of and super responsive, easy to work with, and learned a new song just for our exit. My only regret is that I got so lost in the moment I didn't get to hear more of her beautiful work. My family and friends have sung her praises and her solo cello added such a beautiful touch to our day. She followed up immediately after our wedding and had nothing but nice things to say. She really is the sweetest and easiest to work with. Hire her. Right now.

    My mom was lucky to find Megan via the internet for my wedding this past spring after we were unimpressed with the music recommendations from our wedding planner. Megan was an excellent decision!! She was responsive and extremely flexible to our needs from the very beginning. We were looking for Appalachian/folkish music and not traditional wedding trio music, and Megan and her team absolutely delivered! She put together an excellent trio, learned songs for us, and did a beautiful job at the wedding. They were on time, professional, and clearly very talented musicians. I would highly recommend!

    Awesome ceremony music in the asheville area

    What a fantastic group to work with! I highly recommend Megan in the Asheville and North Carolina area! She was so accommodating and listened to all of my requests! Her group was so fantastic they even learned a 70s song for my husband and I to walk down the aisle after our announcement as man and wife! They were the best! So wish we had a videographer to listen to her beautiful performance in full! My guest raves about how wonderful the group sounded!
