    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!

    I have worked with Megan and Carolina Music Planner on many projects ranging from weddings to helping her build her new website! Megan is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. She is highly communicative, organized and talented at what she does. Her and her musicians show up on time and everyone is always talking about how great they were after the event! I recommend Megan and her team for any event! You won't regret hiring her.

    Megan was amazing! She played the cello for our indoor ceremony and cocktail hour. It was just wonderful. She was easy to work with throughout the whole process, and really helped give us an idea of what would work well in terms of sound within our space. She is knowledgeable, professional, and extremely accommodating. We would highly recommend her!

    When I heard Megan was available to play for our wedding ceremony I was absolutely ecstatic. I have heard Megan play on numerous occasions and knew it would be perfect. Turns out, I was right. We wanted a guitarist as well and she was able to accomodate. She was easy to work with, reliable, professional and they were able to play all of the songs that I wanted. Thank you so much, Megan!!! It was a dream come true.

    Megan is great! We hired her to play at our daughter’s destination wedding and we really chose well. Megan was very responsive to emails, able offer music selections and play requests, and didn’t bat an eye when we asked her to play outdoors in November. All of this and she plays beautifully! I really cannot recommend her enough.

    Megan was such a delight to work with throughout the whole process! From our first messaging back and forth to an early phone call, Megan was completely professional, accommodating and just extra friendly! Megan and Claire played the cello and violin for our wedding ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful- they even played for the hymns during our ceremony. I am so grateful for how much Megan added to our special day!

    Megan and Tate were fabulous during the entire process, from first contact to the day of. My husband and I requested a cello + guitar duet for our wedding ceremony, and Megan was most accommodating and sent us samples of their music to help us decide what we wanted. Their performance set a lovely tone for our big day, and we certainly recommend Megan if you are looking for a cellist who is professional, helpful, (and not too pricey!) and can help you make your wedding day exactly what you hoped for!

    Megan was absolutely amazing and essential to helping us create our perfect wedding ceremony! We are a somewhat quirky couple and had a few music requests that were out of the ordinary, but Megan had no hesitation in supporting our ideas and finding the music we were looking for. She played everything exceptionally well and created the atmosphere we were aiming for! I could not have asked for more!

    We hired Megan to play for our ceremony/cocktail hour and she was nothing less than AMAZING. She was incredibly responsive to e-mails and phone calls (which was really important to us during the stressful wedding planning process) and was happy to accommodate all of our song requests (some of which were very unique/not well known) without hesitation. I had MULTIPLE guests commenting about how perfect the music was. She has played for countless weddings and is very experienced and professional - this was clearly reflected in her arriving and setting up promptly at the venue and being able to perfectly time the music to line up with the recessional/precessional/etc. BOOK THIS VENDOR FOR YOUR WEDDING YOU WON'T REGRET IT! :)

    Megan is the absolute best! I cannot say enough about how happy we are with the way all of the music turned out. My husband and I wanted to use some relatively non traditional ceremony music and she was a dream to work with. Megan arranged 5 songs for my ceremony and they were perfect. I received so many compliments on our music and I owe it all to her. On top of it all, she is so sweet and personable. I enjoyed working with her from start to finish.

    Megan was super helpful during wedding planning and really made me feel like I had someone there for me as I was planning my Asheville wedding from Denver. She really made me feel at ease and was very responsive over email and phone. We decided on a string duo for the ceremony and cocktail hour and it was perfect! She knew exactly how to time everything and was lovely to work with! Highly recommended!!

    We hired Megan (and she found us an amazing violinist to accompany) to play cello at our wedding at Symmes Chapel in September 2016. I can't say enough wonderful things about her! Megan was always responsive to emails very quickly and made sure to play a few of my favorite pieces of music before the wedding. We received so many compliments on her beautiful music and her talent made our wedding day all we had hoped it would be. She arrived early on the day of and was so gracious to accommodate when we forgot to bring a fold out chair for her sit on! (still so sorry about that!) If you are looking for beautiful music for any special occasion, I will sing Megan's praises forever. She is THE BEST!

    Thank you so much! Honestly I wasn't even concerned with the chair, as long as I've got somewhere to perch. Haha! Your wedding was so beautiful- simple, genuine, and at one of the prettiest venues I've ever seen. I thank you for your kind words, and wish you a lifetime of happiness. YOU guys are the best!

    Megan provided lovely music before the wedding, during the wedding, and also for the cocktail time before the reception. She was able to prepare for a special rendition of the song chosen for the reception also. We were totally happy with her performance ! Her pricing was reasonable also !

    My daughter is a musician herself and the music at her own wedding was a very important detail. Megan came highly recommended and we were so fortunate to be able to book her. She is an extremely talented, professionally-trained cellist who performed magnificently! The prelude and ceremony music were perfect! She is a true artist and her performance was beautiful.

    Beautiful Music For A Mountain Wedding

    We absolutely loved having Megan and Michelle as a part of our wedding day. They were a beautiful addition to our mountain ceremony and our guests absolutely loved listening to them. They even played requests during the cocktail hour. Megan was very easy to work with and always got back to us in a timely manner.

    Played Beautifully

    Megan and her staff were wonderful and played exactly the kind of music we were looking for. They very helpfully have a number of suggested playlists, and a full list of songs that they already have the sheet music for. We were surprised that the basic package include attending the rehearsal - to have the musicians rehearse would have incurred additional fees. In our experience, learning the musical cues is a major reason for the rehearsal, but we were told that this is standard in this industry these days. All that said, they did a great job, and the rehearsal was not necessary after all.

    Sent on 09/05/2019

    Carolina Music Planner's reply:

    Hello, and thank you so much. It was an absolute privilege being a part of your special day! Lindsey and Nora enjoyed performing for you.

    I do wish that we could accommodate rehearsal schedules free of charge, but especially through wedding season, most of our performers play weddings Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In order to reserve the ensemble for the wedding date and rehearsal date, we have to be sure that they're paid for the time both dates. I completely understand that it would have been nice to have them there, but I'm so glad it worked out for the best either way!!

    We wish you a lifetime of happiness, and really very much appreciate you taking the time to leave such a helpful, thorough review. Cheers!

    Excellent quartet

    They are very professional and excellent musicians. We requested all classical and they did not disappoint! And the cellist played a solo with a pianist so they are open to requests. The solo cost extra but it was worth it. I highly recommend them!

    Carolina Music Planner's reply:

    Congrats, Anna! I’m so grateful for your kind words. The quartet very much enjoyed performing for your wedding, and the add-on (extra cost for add’l rehearsal with the pianist outside of the quartet) added a special touch! The Swan is one of my favorite pieces. I wish you both the very best, and want to thank you again for including us on your special day.

    Here is my little "thank you" I sent to Carolina Music Planner after my wedding:
    Thank you so much for performing Trumpet Voluntary as my Dad and I walked down the aisle. Your performance was a perfect surprise for the guests in attendance and provided the perfect backdrop for my long walk down the aisle. You performed elegantly. Thank you for helping me create my dream wedding.

    Abby, it was such a pleasure to coordinate the trumpet soloist for your wedding. I'm glad that we could add a "special surprise" to the ceremony, and wish you both the very best.
