COMMENTS FROM CLIENTS: Beautiful Music – www.BeautifulMusic.cc

Comments from clients, 5 star reviews and more:

Beautiful music played our ceremony music. We selected a string quartette and were very thrilled with the performance. We emailed a list of songs which were all played. I walked down the isle to Uptown Girl by Billy Joel and it was awesome! People have been commenting about how "cool" the music was at the ceremony. Thank you!! Jacqo Strazzeri, Waldorf Astoria/2012

Shannon at Beautiful Music was a pleasure to work with. She was very thorough with describing all the music options they offer and was easy to work with regarding staying within our price range. The music sounded fantastic! The musicians were very talented and we even had the string trio play modern music for our cocktail hour. It definitely made our wedding a top-notch event. Highly recommended! Daniela Gershuny – Bella Collina April 2012

They were great musicians, provided a fantastic level of consultative service to get just the right songs. And there was not a missed note, it seemed, and we are both musicians. They also played our cocktail hour and we were told it was excellent because they played new music people aren't used to hearing a string quartet do. We were very happy with them! 5 Star Reviews and Thank you note: Becky, Waldorf Astoria May 2012.

I have used Beautiful Music for both of my daughters' weddings and they did a tremendous job at each one! We were extremely pleased with the music during the ceremony and also the cocktail hour. Shannon made the planning easy and I highly recommend this vendor. Their name fits! Penny Watzka, Portofino Bay Hotel April 25 2012- 5 Star Reviews and Thank you note.

They were amazing and most importantly of all they were very professional. Kevin & Tiffany, February 2012 at Calvary Iglesia Church and OMNI Championsgate- Muse Quartet.

We worked with Shannon to find musicians who could provide the sound we wanted---and we were pretty picky... Shannon sent us multiple demo tapes until we found a good match. The musicians were all excellent and very professional, making our rehearsal dinner even more rewarding for our family and friends. Lisa & Dan/Polasek Gardens April 2012 – Jazz Quartet

Great ceremony music!! All my guests enjoyed the musicians. Thank you for making it truly the most special day of my life. Christine Nau, Ritz Carlton June 2012 Paint It Black Quartet

They are extremely professional and their music is absolutely beautiful. They made my ceremony so magically and breathtaking - it was a dream! – Alexandra Adler Toccin March 26 2011-Ritz Carlton Platinum Wedding – Beautiful Music Orchestra, Vocal Duo and Fanfare Trumpeter.

Beautiful music was a joy to work with and their music was superb. I would highly recommend them to you. They added so much elegance to our special event. National Convention/Bikers Club – Paint It Black Quartet – March 2012

Beautiful Music did a fabulous job! Planning with them was very easy and the music for the ceremony and cocktail hour was just beautiful! Kylie – 2012/Wedding- Paint it Black Quartet

We upgraded our resort wedding package to include a flute, violin and cello trio for our ceremony. Shannon from Beautiful Music was great to work with and open to us requesting a few songs not on their standard music selection list. Everything was perfect and several guests commented on the great music and atmosphere they provided. Very professional and talented musicians!! Kevin/Wedding at Omni Championsgate/October 29, 2011 – Paint It Black Quartet.

We had a great time working with Shannon , she provided the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Shannon was easy to work with, she was flexible, and we felt that the music that they provided was very nice. Highly recommend her and her team. Maryam Hatefi/October 2011- Paint it Black Quartet

I can't say enough great things about Shannon & team! So many people told me after the ceremony that was the best music they'd ever heard at a wedding. We had the Paint It Black Trio (violin, cello, flute) play Vitamin String Quartet songs and covers of modern songs and they sounded SO lovely. The perfect blend of modern traditional music. They also played the cocktail hour which brought the most delightful vibe to the party. Especially perfect at Casa Feliz venues.. In addition, we rented a sound system from Shannon with an iPod dock for the reception dance music. We took requests on our RSVPs and mixed them in with our favorite music. The best man kept an eye on the iPod and cued the first dance - it all worked out perfectly and the dancing went non-stop! Courtney/2011 – Casa Feliz for Ceremony & Reception

Shannon did a wonderful job of collaboration with a variety of genres from the old 40s standards to Caribbean to rock. Just a great resource and left my guests impressed by the creativity of the members. Woody Owen, Casa Feliz Wedding Reception-Dance Band

Incredible band and DJ services during my ceremony and reception! We enjoyed working with Shannon throughout the planning process. Beautiful music and Shannon Caine are the ones for your wedding or special event!! We were so pleased with Shannon and Beautiful Music! Exactly, what we imaging and more on our wedding day. Everyone, mentioned to us how wonderful our music was. Professional, and played every song above expectations! I would recommend Beautiful Music to all couples for there wedding day. Also, for any event in need of music. Dr. & Mrs. McHale/Ritz Carlton April 2011- Chamber Quartet and Dance Band/DJ services.

Shannon from Beautiful Music was professional, inspirational, and her music added an overall angelic spirit that created the element of love and elegance at my wedding ceremony. I also had Beautiful Music at my cocktail hour, and many of my guests commented on how wonderful they were. Beautiful Music made my wedding a day to remember. July 2010, Natalia/Bride

Dear Shannon I cannot even explain the thrill I got when I listened to the CD Anna gave me at the close of the ceremony. I had no idea I would receive that. We listened to it in its entirety on the way home and I had chill bumps. That bass added SO MUCH depth, as we knew it would. The harp was so profound. I am soooooooooo happy we kept adding instruments. There were so many positive remarks all night about your music. Absolutely stunning, beautiful, gorgeous event in every way. Your company name is most appropriate Beautiful Music, because it is just that! I tried to thank each musician. If I missed anyone, please extend my most effusive thank you to all of them. I hope you are in business for many, many years to come because your service is needed and adds such a dignified and glorious touch to the event. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am so glad I called you for a piano player and I am so glad you were assertive with offering me your service. I would never have known otherwise. Thank you thank you thank you. YOU SAVED THE DAY..... Mary Lane Review Highlights: I give Beautiful Music five stars (5 being the highest score) on everything. The beautiful combination of so many instruments made for a glorious and harmonious sound in the church auditorium. Everyone was dressed so beautifully, professionally and were also very timely. The instrumentalists and singers were heavenly sounding. I would highly recommend Beautiful Music for any occasion. Mother of Bride - Mary Lane Hood July 30, 2011 at Mary Lane Hood/July 2011- First Baptist of Orlando and Ritz Carlton Venues – Including Full Orchestra, Fanfare Trumpet Duo, Choir and Soloist and Jazz Piano at the Cocktail Hour

Beautiful music was amazing, of course being the bride I didn't get to experience much of the beginning of my ceremony or any of my cocktail hour, but my guests told me that the music was absolutely amazing!! Thank you so much for everything on my special day. Lauren & James October 2010.

My music ensemble was AMAZING! Their music was absolutely beautiful!! The musicians were punctual and a true pleasure to listen to. Communication was always maintained throughout the entire planning process! Shannon also made it very easy in choosing the theme of my ceremony music by providing samples and outlines! I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER WITH MY CEREMONY MUSIC CHOICE! Abdelle/Bride December 2011.

Hi Shannon, It was so nice talking to you recently. I find it difficult to believe that it has already been months since the wedding. Again, thank you for all you did to help make Ashley’s Wedding day the most beautiful day of her life. Amazing wedding - a grateful Mother of the Bride. Event included 10 voice choir, 10 piece orchestra, dance band - solo sax at cocktail hour. Deni Burnetti of Burnetti Associates/Lakeland FL/ NYE December 2010 – Platinum Wedding

Shannon with Beautiful Music was great! She was recommended to me by Shannon at Big City Catering. She has dozens of options for musicians. I selected a chamber trio that included a flutist, violinist and cello. I got married in a rotunda at Lake Mary Events Center. The wedding was absolutely amazing and the music was the perfect addition for the rotunda. They did an amazing job and Shannon was very flexible and easy to work with. :-) – Anna/2011 at Lake Mary Events Center

Shannon Caine and Beautiful Music did a great job at our wedding and reception. They had an extensive list of music to choose from and they were very accommodating with a special request we had for a song after our ceremony. They were very professional and we highly recommend them. Caritsa/Bride 2010

Incredible! We couldn't have been more pleased. They were fantastic. Our guests were very complimentary of them. I had to convince the bride that we needed them. I am thrilled to say that she came to me that night and told me I was right, they were wonderful. The Bride and Groom were thrilled. That set the mood for the rest of the night. I would use them again. Kwp/2010

Beautiful Music with Shannon Caine was suggested to me by my wedding planner, Lisa from E-Events. I contacted Shannon several weeks before my July 31, 2010 wedding. She immediately began to put me at ease with her knowledge of music and wedding experience. She provided me with ample suggestions of musical selections for our Knowles Chapel ceremony. I ended up choosing some obscure pieces as well as some traditional ones, and Shannon and the musicians really came through. Every detail that Shannon and I had discussed was executed to perfection. I was a stressed out bride, not knowing the first thing about how to putting together the ceremony I had envisioned, and Shannon listened to me and was able to guide me in the right direction and deliver. If you want your wedding to invoke emotion, the kind that gives you goose bumps - there is no other choice but Beautiful Music. Thank you, Shannon for your tender spirit and brilliant talent. God Bless, Natasha/Rollins Knowles Chapel 2010.

Beautiful Music provided music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Shannon was very sweet and accommodating! Our guests also really enjoyed the musical selections ranging from traditional to contemporary. Thanks for sharing in our special day! Orlando Bride/2010

Beautiful Music was wonderful! We couldn't have asked for a more professional and personable group of musicians. They performed during our intimate wedding reception and the entire party was captivated by their talent. All of my guests commented on how fantastic they were. Their selection of music in addition to my requests was perfect for the occasion. Sara/Bride 2010

I have only the highest rating for Shannon and Beautiful Music. Shannon was extremely professional and helpful in working with me on my son's wedding rehearsal dinner. The planning circumstances were more difficult with me being in Michigan and the event in Florida! Shannon made that issue a non-event. Everything went off very smoothly ... the music performed by the jazz trio was superb and the musicians were professional, very flexible and an excellent value. Their music really completed the event, raising it to a higher level of class and elegance. I would highly recommend Beautiful Music for any event! Jim/Father of the Groom/Winter Park Farmers Market

Shannon with Beautiful music was professional and pleasant from day one. They exceeded our expectations and were more than accommodating when our ceremony ran late! The music was absolutely beautiful it really made my day breathtaking! The Chamber trio played so beautifully and all of our guests loved it! Joshalind/Bride 2010.

We recently hired Beautiful Music to play for our wedding ceremony (July 2010) and they were awesome. Shannon was great to work with and really went the extra mile helping us choose the music. We weren't interested in the standard run-of-the-mill wedding music and they had no problem finding other options and accommodating us. The ceremony went off without a hitch. The Beautiful Music trio and trumpeter worked well with the coordinator and other staff to pull off the timing just right. The way they handled everything really lowered my stress level! Great job! Lauren/Bride 2010

Absolutely fantastic, the ceremony would not have been the same without her!! Lucia/Bride 2010 – Westin Grand Bohemian/poolside

Beautiful Music played the ceremony music out our wedding. We were so pleased that we decided to hire these talented musicians. They brought an element of class to our wedding that couldn't have been achieved with recorded music. Bride/2010

Beautiful Music is always welcome at our events--they are dependable and talented and completely wonderful. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a quality addition to their occasion. Shelton/Groom 2010.

One of our most important qualities of our wedding was our bag piper that we wanted at our ceremony. It was a surprise for our guests when we walked up the aisle escorted by a live bagpiper in Irish tradition. He played so beautifully and also played while our guests conjugated around the front of the church waiting for us to depart. I am so ecstatic that he was part of our wedding and am so pleased that Beautiful Music, Shannon Caine, was able to coordinate with us and make it possible. He was AMAZING!!! Reception: We loved having a live BAND, especially one that was so easy to work with and sounded so great. We honestly thought that it was one of the highlights of our reception and wished it had been longer. :) They were definitely worth it and I will definitely use them again, when I plan another event. I would also like to mention that 6 months later, our guests are still raving about our wedding. Thank you for making it so perfect. Angela, Bride at 2010 - Ritz Carlton Grand Lakes.

Of all the many moving parts in my wedding I was the least concerned about my ceremony music. From the time of our first phone conversation all the way through I do Beautiful Music was responsive, professional, helpful, and just a pleasure to work with. They are obviously very experienced musicians and were familiar with my venue and it's music rules so there was no guessing. The day went perfectly, the music was beautiful! If you have the occasion to need musicians for your wedding ceremony (or reception because I hear they do bigger bands too) don't think twice about hiring Beautiful Music because they will flawlessly execute! Spensyr, Rollins Knowles Chapel Bride/2010

They did an amazing job at our wedding ceremony. The music was fabulous. Bride/2010 – Kimberly

Shannon, We cannot begin to thank you enough for the services you provided for our wedding. From the very beginning, you exuded professionalism, promptness, and helpful insight every step of the way. With instrumental song selections like "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Beautiful Day," our song selections were a little "out of the box" and more contemporary, but your team made it happen anyway! You met all of our needs and well exceeded our expectations. To us, the ceremony was the most important part of our wedding day. Every song we chose had special meaning to us. When the vocalists and pianist performed, they conveyed those emotions perfectly and everyone in the church could feel it! When Michelle & Eric sang "The Prayer," I cried along with many of our other guests. Our friends and family raved about the ceremony music during our reception and said it was the most beautiful ceremony they'd ever attended! Beautiful Music is worth every penny and I would recommend you any day of the week. Thank you for making our wedding ceremony simply magical!! Sincerely, Lenee & Clinton Magnuson/March 2010 Ceremony: Windermere Community Church/Reception: Isleworth

Beautiful Music played my wedding music at my Rollins Chapel wedding January 30, 2010. They were absolutely essential to the overall aura of my wedding. They played with poise, grace, and brought nearly everyone in my chapel to tears with their beautiful sound. I would recommend Beautiful Music to anyone who wants the absolute best musical experience. Overall, I can not accurately describe just how happy I was with the musical sound Beautiful Music gave me.. They made me an extremely happy bride !!! :) Rollins Knowles Chapel Bride/Katherine Schwartz 2010.

Shannon is one of the most professional and thorough musicians that I have had the pleasure of experiencing. She provides superior quality, responsiveness, flexibility, value and promptness. She kept in contact with me through email and phone calls to coordinate, make recommendations and assure me that everything would work out. Everything she did made me feel confident that she would make my wedding reception as I had hoped. My family and friends were very impressed with her Beautiful Music at the reception and it was everything that I hoped and dreamed for. Don't trust anyone else for a special once in a life time event such as your wedding or reception! Gloria/Winter Park, FL May 2010

Beautiful Music was exceptionally amazing during the ceremony portion of my wedding. Shannon provided options for me to choose from during the selection process. I was having a difficult time in selecting the music for our recessional. Shannon mentioned to me that they have their own rendition of Coldplay's-Viva la Vida. It was awesome! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to add a little something extra to their ceremony. Thank you again for such beautiful music and making my day extremely special. You guys totally live up to your name! Brittany/Bride February 2010

We used the jazz trio for an outdoor wedding at Casa Feliz. The music was perfect and the musicians very professional. Everyone commented on how beautiful the music was and just right for the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Susan/Mother of Groom – 2010 Casa Feliz

Wonderful! Made our ceremony truly beautiful! – Brittany/Bride March 2010.

Elegant, and understated performance. Beautiful Music provided a tasteful compliment to the service. Mike Ward, Father of the Bride – JW Marriott Grand Lakes March 2010.

Beautiful Music helped to make my wedding so special. They were very professional and sounded great. Having the trio really added to the overall feel of the event. We booked the trio for 3 hours. Their repertoire was very large and I got many compliments. We had a flutist, cellist and violinist. I initially wanted all strings, but the flutist really did a great job and added a lot. If I had to do things over again, I would keep everything the same. Courtney/Bride 2010 Vero Beach.

It has been 2 months since our wedding and we still receive daily compliments about the music. Beautiful Music provided the trumpet player during our ceremony and a 3 piece jazz band during our cocktail hour. They did a fantastic job!! It was worth every penny we paid! They were professional musicians, Shannon was easy to work with and easy to contact. Thank you for filling our wedding day with Beautiful Music!! Ivette/Bride 2009

They were great to work with and very professional! Kristen/Bride 2009

Shannon was more than responsive. My need was for ceremony music and a band and my request came on Monday morning for the following Saturday. She found the most incredible entertainers and musicians for 35 guests who flew in from London for a wedding. I had less than 7 days to pull together an event for a very unique challenge. I did not meet the bride till the day of the wedding. Shannon and her follow through was beyond great. She kept hunting talent and the team of talent she organized, and delivered hours before the event were amazing. Anyone who needs entertainment should know that Shannon is a can do, make it happen professional who, commits to your needs, delivers your requests, is polite, kind, and simply the best. What I did not share is she did all this while pulling 6 other groups together for others, and on one of the busiest days of the year for weddings in Orlando. I still have not met her in person.. but my Bride was happy and that's what matters. Oh, Shannon then calls me on Sunday morning after the wedding on her way back from her gig...out of town... following through to ensure all went well.... Shannon and Beautiful Music equals Service beyond the Wonderful. Thank you, Shannon and talent. – Event Planner/Windermere, 2010.

BM was able to learn and perform original written music and worked well with my soloists with very little practice. They were only able to practice only a few minutes with my three soloists (one being the brides father), and it came off beautiful. The majority of my music was modern light classical and religious. I had my own music director to communicate and write the music and work with them, however, my initial communication with BM was very good. My daughter’s wedding was at the Ritz and a high profile one and they added a very elegant touch to the ceremony. Taz/Ritz Carlton Client 2009.

We were very pleased with all of the services provided by Beautiful music for our wedding this past weekend. They travelled over 2 hours to our event and did an excellent job keeping all of our guests enthused and entertained. I would highly recommend this band to anyone who is planning a special event or wedding. Very professional! - Crutchfield-Malone wedding 10/10/09

We had a solo violinist play for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He did a great job and made beautiful music that we'll never forget! Kindra/Bride 2009.

Without exception, our guests thought Beautiful Music did a great job. The selections were beautiful, appropriate to our traditional wedding, and very well executed! We are very happy to have contracted you and would definitely use you in the future. I just wish I had had the chance to enjoy the concert! Thank you again for your services- Best, Becky and Ralph Martinez , Rollins Knowles Chapel – Winter Park Florida

Shannon coordinated a wonderful set of music for the ceremony and reception. She accommodated our daughter's modern preferences which were specific as to the processional and recessional, and integrated classics into the dinner music very effectively. It was a pleasure to work with Shannon and Beautiful Music. Geneva Brundage, May 23, 2009/Ritz Carlton Grand Lakes Ceremony & Reception

Working with Shannon Caine of Beautiful Music was wonderful! She is very professional and organized through the planning process. She worked with us to assist in customizing our ceremony and reception music. ALL our guests had an outstanding time at the wedding thanks to Beautiful Music. May 2009, Ritz Carlton Grand Lakes - Client

Shannon Caine not only reached out to me, to my wedding planner and was more than efficient. She was on the ball from start to finish. She made me feel more than comfortable during a crazy time and was always available. A true pro and yes the music rocked! Martha Sugalski – Channel 2 News Anchor – Wedding at Casa Feliz, Winter Park.

We chose a violinist to add a certain elegance to our intimate wedding - the artist was extremely professional, talented and entertaining, especially at the reception dinner. It was the perfect fit. Andrea, Sea World of Florida – Event at Hyatt Grand Cypress, May 2009

What we heard was excellent...had a misunderstanding of one of the requested pieces, but was ready with another to play...Working with them ahead of time was very favorable. They respond by phone & email immediately. I would get them again. Dana Baggett, Wedding & Reception, Daytona Beach Florida – May 2009

Shannon Caine and her group of talented professionals provided classical pre-ceremony and ceremony music and jazz for the cocktail hour for my youngest daughter's wedding in the spring of '08. It was simply spectacular! They combine a professional look with an amazingly gifted sound, and I have already sent in my check to reserve Beautiful Music for my oldest daughter's wedding in the fall of '09. I highly recommend Beautiful Music to anyone looking for accommodating, flexible, talented musicians! Note: Dear Shannon, We were all THRILLED with your beautiful music and professional style. It was really a fairy tale atmosphere, thanks to you! Jane Hames, Winter Park- Chamber Quartet/Jazz Quartet

Shannon, Thank you so much for the wonderful music for our wedding! Your flute playing was just beautiful at the ceremony and then the Dance Band and DJ at the reception were so much fun! – Everyone had such a great time! The DJ was amazing and the saxophone for the Fireworks show was just perfect. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so great! Eric & Joanna (Sams) Anderson, Orlando Florida Ritz-Carlton Grand Lakes Wedding March 7, 2009- Dance Band, DJ & Solo Flutist

Beautiful Music is perfectly named. Not only is each musician incredibly talented, but they work so well together and do everything to accommodate the needs of their clients. They performed at my wedding ceremony and had no problem whatsoever playing nontraditional songs by the Beatles and other popular artists. I would highly recommend them to all!! My husband, Gilbert, and I were beyond blessed to have Beautiful Music perform the ceremony music for our wedding. Having grown up with a family in the music industry, we had some unique ideas for ceremony music. Our desire was to feature songs by Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and other artists that are less traditional for wedding services. Shannon and her team were not only open to the idea, they were extremely excited, going above and beyond to accommodate our desires! The music exceeded our expectations and we couldn't have been happier with the passion, professionalism, and quality of performance. From beginning to end, the music was just perfect and we were beyond thrilled. Just two nights ago, we savored the memories all over again with a glass of wine as we watched our wedding video and were reminded anew of just how much the music that was played set the perfect tone for our ceremony! Without hesitation, I recommend Shannon and Beautiful Music--shop no further, they are amazing! Jamee Cagle, Ormond BeachWedding June 2008 with our Chamber Quartet and Soloist Comments Posted on WESH A-List

Beautiful Music provided a string trio for my son and daughter-in-law's recent wedding and it was everything they envisioned and more. They incorporated special requests and created just the atmosphere the couple wanted for their ceremony. It was absolutely gorgeous and we had many, many comments from the guests. I highly recommend Shannon and Beautiful Music for any occasion! Diana Roberts, Mother of Groom, Event at Church in Maitland Wedding Spring 2008 with Chamber Trio

Dear Shannon, The wedding was the most fabulous thing most of my friends have ever attended.They just could not stop talking about the Music and Singers at the Church! It made the Ceremony perfect! Thank you so much. It was such a good team!My friends thought the Wedding should have of been televised and featured in all the magazines. The ballroom was out of this world! It was a wonderful team for the entire wedding and that is what you need to pull off such a spectacular event. Thanks again, It was truly beautiful once again.

Shannon and Beautiful Music performed at our wedding last year, providing the music for the cocktail hour and throughout the ceremony. Their performance was outstanding. They played unique music straight from Europe, as well as arrangements from Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion. They were impeccably professional and the music was truly beautiful. A business that more than lives up to its name! Dr. Joan Wilson, MD, October 2007 from 5 star Review Posted on WESH A-List with Vote for Best in Wedding Music Summer 2008 Event at Isleworth Country Club Ceremony/Cocktail Reception – Chamber New Age Orchestra and Vocal Duo After Band: Jefferson Starship

Dear Shannon, Tom and I want to thank you along with all the members of your group for your Incredible performance at our wedding. All of our guests remarked on how beautiful the music was and several said they would have been thrilled to just sit and listen to you all evening. Both Tom and I were touched by the feeling expressed in your music and the skill and talent shown by every member of the ensemble. The vocalists were exceptional also, and I know the songs were not easy requests. We were absolutely thrilled with your group’s performance. The Music was very moving, very different and the soloists did an incredible job. I loved “Celebration” as my processional – listening to it made my heart soar – I’m so glad we used that rather than a traditional piece. Thanks again, our ceremony would not have been the same without your participation. Beautiful Music…Music that more than lives up to its name. Joan Wilson-Kid & Tom Kidd – October 2007 Isleworth Country- Thank you note.

Hi Shannon, I wanted to thank you for providing such beautiful music for Rebecca and Matt's Wedding Ceremony at the Omni on Saturday night. It was a pleasure meeting and working with you.

Dear Shannon, I wanted to tell you that the music for my son’s wedding was Marvelous! It certainly was “Beautiful Music”. Guests are still remarking that the vocalists were wonderful and they were the best they have ever heard perform. I have been asked many times where I found such accomplished musicians and vocalists. We wanted the music that would be remembered and enjoyed by all. We certainly got that and more. Thank you again for the wonderful performance.Sincerely, Carl and Alice Mason June 2006/Chamber Trio and Vocal Duo – Christina and Eric

Shannon and the other musicians were fantastic. She worked hard to prepare and plan with us, and she and her team were excellent performers. It really gave the perfect touch to our wedding ceremony and reception. We got compliments from the guests, and the jazz trio even threw in a few Caribbean tunes after talking to some guests from the Bahamas. They loved it! The only reason I gave 4 1/2 stars for flexibility was that the ceremony soloist wasn't able to perform our 1st and 2nd choices for solo songs, because one was too high, and the other was so new that they couldn't find the music for it, so I suppose that was unavoidable.

I hired Beautiful Music and was expecting a great experience based on the reviews. When I hired them I sent them a copy of the music I wanted played and asked if there were to be any issues playing any of them since some of the music was a custom request. Shannon replied and said that everything was fine. I had booked them for my ceremony and then move location for cocktail hour music.
I was very disappointed that on my wedding day they did not play several of the songs I had chosen. They did not play the exit song for my bridesmaids and bridegrooms instead they just kept playing the bride and groom exit song until the whole bridal party had exited. They also cut my song short as I was walking down the aisle! They stopped and had to begin again and it just sounded weird both live and in the DVDs I have.
Also, I was told by several of my guests that some of the players were looking bored and annoyed during the ceremony. I know it went long but it's so embarrassing to have them look that way as they sit next to us in the podium. I was also told by my wedding planner that they didn't even want to go to my cocktail hour and finish their contract because my pastor had run us an hour behind. I don't even know what they played at cocktail hour, I just know that when I got to the location they were already leaving.
I had such high hopes and was completely devastated at their attitude. I can't say anything bad about their talent because the music was great, but their service and lack of professionalism makes me regret hiring them. They were not worth the price and I will never consider them for another event again.

Shannon at Beautiful Music helped me orchestrate a wonderful gift for my new husband. He did not know that a trio of musicians (flute, cello & violin) would play for our garden wedding & reception. What a wonderful surprise. She also arranged for my dear friend from NC to join the musicians and play her flute with a few pieces during the reception. The musicians were very professional and played a classical program magnificently! Our wedding was planned in less than 2 months & the music program in just a few weeks. The music set the tone for our magical day and we are still in the clouds. Shannon and Beautiful Music has our heartiest recommendation.

I heard Beautiful Music for the first time playing at the Winter Park Bridal Show. I knew at that very second that I would have to have them play for our ceremony. Their classical renditions of popular songs were great, but I’m a rock girl could they fit my genre? The fit it to a tee! From Guns N Roses to Kansas from Sting to Journey they played all the songs that I wanted. I have never been to a wedding where all of my friends were saying how awesome the music was before the reception even started. My music selections only show how versatile Shannon and the rest of the group of Beautiful Music can be. They can fit the tune of any kind of wedding you want. I was rushing the pictures to get back to cocktail hour just to hear them play some more! I would/will suggest them for any party for any occasion! Shannon in a few words ... you guys rocked!

I did a lot of research when planning my wedding as I really wanted professional musicians to play at my wedding. I found Beautiful Music and was very impressed immediately. Things I found a plus were that the musicians are all professionals and because they are a company you will never have a musician absent at your special day.

I met Shannon and she was so professional to deal with. We worked together the music selection and she even made suggestions.

The day of the wedding they were very punctual, which was something I wanted to start sharp. They did a marvelous job. It was flawless, classy, spiritual, again no words.

Everyone at the wedding was super impressed and shared possitive remarks about the quartet. I totally give them 100 stars, but I am only allowed to give 5.

Thanks a lot and I totally recommend it to everyone....

Being a singer, the music for my wedding was very important to me. My church provided an organist to us; however, I wanted to add a level of elegance with the inclusion of a string trio. I was put in contact with Shannon through another local musician. Her level of professionalism and musical knowledge was very impressive. She provided us with suggestions regarding our music and had a diverse selection to choose from. She arrived early and coordinated with our organist. By far, she the easiest vendor to work with. Our guest were impressed with the music and it add a magical touch to the day.

Beautiful music played our ceremony music. We selected a string quartette and were very thrilled with the performance. We emailed a list of songs which were all played. I walked down the isle to Uptown Girl by Billy Joel and it was awesome! People have been commenting about how "cool" the music was at the ceremony. Thank you!!

The musicians were all excellent and very professional, making our rehearsal dinner even more rewarding for oru family and friends.

I can't say enough great things about Shannon & team! So many people told me after the ceremony that was the best music they'd ever heard at a wedding. We had the trio (violin, cello, flute) play Vitamin String Quartet (youtube them!) covers of modern songs and they sounded SO lovely. The perfect blend of modern + traditional. They also played the cocktail hour which brought the most delightful vibe to the party. Especially perfect at Casa Feliz. In addition, we rented a sound system from Shannon with an iPod dock for the reception dance music. We took requests on our RSVPs and mixed them in with our favorite music. The best man kept an eye on the iPod and cued the first dance - it all worked out perfectly and the dancing went non-stop!

We used Beautiful Music for both our ceremony music/cocktail hour and for dj services. Overall, we were very happy with the quartet (trio plus trumpet) and Shannon was very flexible and accommodating with our pieces that we requested. We got great comments from our guests on the music!
Re: responsiveness, during the planning process, I did not feel that Shannon was as responsive as she could have been. I would get a response to one of my emails several days to a week later usually, and I would not get complete answers to my questions I asked via email as she uses a mobile device to reply. I felt that if the emails were done via PC, I probably would have received more detailed answers. However, she is very good by phone. So if you need to contact her, that is probably the best way. Speaking with Shannon, she is very professional, knowledgeable and sincerely cares about your wedding and how it is handled.
The cocktail hour music was done by Eddie on sax and we also received rave reviews on his music ability. Definitely recommend Beautiful Music for ceremony music and the cocktail hour.
Unfortunately there was a snag, which Shannon and I both discussed in depth. Re: Eddie as the DJ, I received feedback from our guests that was not favorable. No one was dancing and they felt the music played was really dull. As my husband and I were hardly in the room, except for brunch, we were not able to enjoy or hear the music. After much research on both ends and discussion with Shannon on what transpired, Eddie performed his job since 80% of what he played was on our play list, however I made a comment on my list to please include dance and 80's (a separate list) since we realized our playlist is a little slow and to mix things up. Unfortunately, that was not followed and all songs that were played aside from the guest requests were slow songs/dinner music. Granted, our crowd apparently weren't a dancing bunch and it was a morning wedding, but more upbeat music would have been nice and appropriate to keep the mood high. Shannon apologized and offered to refund us the booking fee which was considerate.
To sum it up, I give Beautiful Music's ceremony music and cocktail hour five stars.
Due to the issues that were noted above, I give their DJ services three stars and cannot fully recommend him.

Hi Lisa and Mark - I wanted to respond as quickly as possible to your review. I have included all our email notes since your event reagarding the DJ services for your event. I was able to discuss your event with the wedding coordinator as well, she was able to confirm my determinations. I strongly consider the event being a morning wedding impacted the response immensely to the DJ and dance music - I also noted that the coordinator mentioned - that our DJ well mannered and was honoring any request made from the guests and the group would still not respond by dancing. Our DJ has extensive experience not only locally as a well known artist but also nationally including events for two former presidents while in office as well as hundreds of private clients. We have never encountered a problem or response like this at events. Your comments and the experience will help us when booking morning events in the future. Another determining factor was that you were not in the room for most of the event, when the Bride and Groom are absent the events do not always go as planned - for example if the Bride and Groom are on the dance floor the guests are fully engaged and taking part of the festivities. I am not only disappointed, with this portion of the review, but also the note as to my responsiveness - as I responded with over 35 emails and that does not include the many detailed blackberry messages for immediate answers to your important questions as well as many long distance phone calls to answer each request, and question as quickly as possible for you. We appreciated the comments received at the event - both for us as the quartet and our sax/DJ - from your guests - our DJ did get positive feedback as well. Other details I would like to mention - we were happy to extend a discount to work within your budget as well. Your event was beautiful along with your special music requests for the ceremony. We were glad to provide detailed phone consultations with both myself and our DJ - I was sure we had everything not only prepared, but all the information needed to insure event success. We wish you the best and will strongly consider your event in the future when morning weddings are requested.

He was perplexed as to why they would not dance – to any of the upbeat songs – too. We have not done a brunch morning wedding setting before – we have made notes from this event, so as to be able to let clients know when planning. Thank you, Thanks again, Shannon -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: Lisa and Mark Sent: Tuesday, November 09, 2010 5:31 PM To: Shannon Caine Subject: Re: review of event - notes - Shannon Hi Shannon - Thank you for sending this over. Looking over the list, yes most were from our must have list, but if you also notice on the bottom, I mentioned that it has a lot of mushy songs and to please play dance and 80's songs to mix it up. "We noticed our must haves are chock full of slow and mushy songs, so we definitely need some fun dance/upbeat songs and 80’s thrown into the mix.” I requested Dynamite and Club Can't Handle Me amongst various other dance songs, but according to the list below, nothing upbeat and fun seemed to be played other then the ones the guests requested. I would assume that he would have mixed up the playlist and not play so many slow songs and I think that is what the guests were referring to. On Tue, Nov 9, 2010 at 12:37 PM, Shannon Caine wrote: Hi Lisa, This is the report from Eddie on your event. Thanks again, Shannon Caine, Beautiful Music Hi Shannon, I've included the do not play list, It is a very large list from the client, as well as Highlights from the play lists that were included: My Girl It Had to be You By Your Side Copacabana Bubbly Fallin For You Have you Ever Really Loved a Woman You're the Inspiration Save the Best for Last Minuano Browned Eyed Girl Jason Mraz Chicago tune – guest request. Tainted Love- Guest Request I Will Survive- Guest Request Cha-Cha Slide- Guest request Let’s Get It Started In Here – request. Big Band - clients lists Frank Sinatra Songs – client list Standards from client list All –special requests made by guests A lady guest asked me to play "Tainted Love" by Softcell. I did, she danced with a friend so I went into " I Will Survive" and she continued dancing with her friend. She even asked others (I also asked on the Mic for others to join her) to get up and dance with her, nobody would respond. As that was winding down I asked her if there was something else she would like. So she asked for the Cha Cha Slide. I played it, nobody danced on this one. Very unusual, Never had this happen. In fact they have asked me not to play it at Down Town Disney because I had so many people dancing that the street was blocked with dancers. I had met a few band directors at this event and one person who was a pro musician, these types rarely dance at events. They were complimentary of the music. I also announced from the microphone to the entire room of guests “if there was something they would like to dance to or listen to” No response. Other things that make a party less likely to have dancing is Lighting; usually it is dim lighting, which was not going to happen because natural lighting with huge glass windows combined with the size of dance floor and large room size. Often it is suggested to have a smaller dance floor to create a comfortable setting for the guests. This was very large open setting considering the number of guests. For example the previous Saturday evening I had 75 guests in a room twice as small and the dance floor was twice as small - Once they started dancing it never emptied. When I see people are not dancing I try to play music people like to listen to; One guest remarked after I played the Pat Methany piece "Minuano" that I could play Methany the rest of the afternoon and he would be happy. I did not do that, I also played a Chicago song off their standards list; again someone came up and talked how they knew this album and so forth. I just played two Chicago songs; one was on the Bride's list and one a guest request. As the Bride and Groom were finishing up dinner I asked if there was anything I could do for them, they stated no, everything was fine. They really didn't have any comment or requests. After the Bride and Groom had left the reception, the lady guest who had been dancing came back in. I was playing Black Eye Peas song; “Lets Get It Started In Here" they liked that but, They DID NOT DANCE as the staff had started tearing down the room. So I went back to playing a song on the brides list (That’s when the Lady that had danced before made a comment about how she liked the song I had been playing but not the one now, and they left the event. I continued to play until the Caterer had said they were gone at 2:25 so I started tearing down the set up as directed. This one guests really wanted to have a party scene and party dancing – however the guests in attendance were not interested. This is a big note here, even when people don't dance, usually they will dance to a Famous Slow Song. The guest weren't interested in even doing that. They were sitting mostly at tables talking and enjoying themselves. I had all the songs that you had sent me in the previous e-mails from the client and our phone consultation. I was not approached by the Bride and Groom during the event at all - Positive or Negative. I feel I did everything that they wanted; you will see she gave me some liberty to adjust songs. I did communicate throughout the entire event with the guests and checked with the Bride and Groom as well. Please let me know the feedback, as I am always looking for ways to improve what I do. I did adhere to the lists below from the client: Thanks, Eddie Our from Bride's List - “Oh Hell to the No” List Any organized dance YMCA Chicken Dance Macarena Electric Slide etc Rap R&B/Hip Hop Country No conga line No John Mayer No Justin Bieber No Grease No B-52’s From Bride - The below must haves and artist lists are only guidelines. Of course not all will be able to be played, but we wanted to give you a good idea of what we like. We noticed our must haves are chock full of slow and mushy songs, so we definitely need some fun dance/upbeat songs and 80’s thrown into the mix. From: Shannon Caine [mailto:shannon@beautifulmusic.cc] Sent: Monday, November 08, 2010 6:53 PM Subject: note from Shannon Hi Lisa, I called a few times today trying to catch you in person. Since speaking with you I followed up in detail with Eddie as well as others at the event. Eddie was very upset that there was any negative feedback at all on this event – as he catered to each request that guests were making as well as keeping in line with your music list, NO Plays etc. He played – some of the tunes at the cocktail hour on sax to extend how many tunes he could accomplish in the short reception time line. From your Must play list – it shows in his computer program that – he played 22 of the songs listed of 26 – top must play list. Well over what I had interpreted from our quick call the next day from you. He did state that you had one lady guest who requested party tunes such as tainted Love, I will Survive and others – even one that was on your No Play List - - emphatically no play – and even honored that request. She kept trying to get people to get up and dance to the party tunes – but no one wanted to do so. She also asked for the Cha- Cha Slide – and he honored that request – no one would dance with her. Everyone was happy and enjoying their time together – many danced on slower songs that you had requested. Many requests were made to Eddie and he honored each one upon request. Then at the close of the event – your Dad came over and told him a great job and extended him a $40.00 tip for his services and thanked him for music. Eddie, said, many of your guests came up and complimented him on the music including the Pat Methany request you had on the list – Minuano. Eddie also announced several times that if anyone had a request to please come up to the DJ table and let him know – he was glad to honor any request. Based on the research and information I have gathered – I will not be able to extend a refund on his services, he followed the schedule, the request list in order of how it was given, as well as had his notes form your phone interview with him – he stated – there were a few items that were on play list – but the category was on the no list – for example – MY Girl – was requested – but was on the no play R&B list. He did honor the request, and it was received well. Eddie is the consummate professional and wanted to also say he had notes that you had given him the liberty to adjust the songs as needed for the guests enjoyment. He feels he did everything possible to make your event a success. He also noted that the size of the dance floor and morning lighting may have discouraged some folks from dancing. I was so happy to hear your call that day – and you were so pleased with the music. Please send me your address- as I will send you a gift from me – in honor of your event. Best to you and yours, Shannon

Worst mistake I made by choosing the trio for my wedding!!! I thought by reading reviews from previous people was enough to trust the quality of their service. My ceremony was at 6:00pm and they were supposed to arrive at 5:45pm. Ended up walking down the isle with no music. I was very disappointed that all three of them showed up at different time past during the cocktail hours. I would not recommend their services to anyone that wants to have no issues during their wedding day. I don't know what went wrong or why they showed up late and I can't believe their excuse was that they thought the ceremony was at a different location knowing that signs were posted around the premises indicating where the wedding was taking place or they could have called. If I knew this was going to happen, I would have never chosen them and as of today never even got an apology from them. I can't believe that being in this line of services they can't even be on time. My advise to any bride out there, make sure whoever you choose as your vendor they are responsible and on time the day of your wedding. For the people who provided great feedback below who I trusted, I'm glad they had no issues on their wedding day and things worked out for them.

I would not recommend their services to anyone that wants to have no issues during their wedding day. I don't know what went wrong or why they showed up late and I can't believe their excuse was that they thought the ceremony was at a different location knowing that signs were posted around the premises indicating where the wedding was taking place or they could have called. If I knew this was going to happen, I would have never chosen them and as of today never even got an apology from them. I can't believe that being in this line of services they can't even be on time. My advise to any bride out there, make sure whoever you choose as your vendor they are responsible and on time the day of your wedding. For the people who provided great feedback below who I trusted, I'm glad they had no issues on their wedding day and things worked out for them. Read less

Dear Digna and Mike, I am posting my email sent on 9/15/10 along with my exchanges from 9/5/10. I am also mailing a package that includes a check to you as we discussed. Thank you for taking time to speak with me as well as your acceptance of our apology. Sincerely, Shannon

Dear Digna, I wish my email was under better circumstances. I received a notification of a review from you on wedding wire this evening- about your September 5, 2010 wedding. My sincere apologies to you, and I will explain in detail what happened at your event. I had a family emergency earlier that afternoon, and sent my replacement player to take my place at the event. I understand they went to the wrong part of the hotel and misunderstood my directions. When your sister called me I left immediately and drove to the location to pull the group together via phone for the cocktail and dismiss the other player. We have never had a negative incident like this with our services in over 25 years of service. My other player was so upset that she requested that she be released from the event, so I arranged to stay in her place. I immediately re-grouped the event as quickly as possible with the help of your lovely sister Ana. The group was replaced by my other players and we completed the cocktail set and moved into the reception room after consulting with your sister Ana on the new time line- she was very helpful with this arrangement. I did not have your site contacts info, email or number, which was my error, as I always have this information prior to the event and I am sorry I did not have this on file. I did not know anything was wrong until your sister Ana called me after the wedding, and stated the wedding time was moved up urgently due to the weather and where to be for the cocktail hour. Then I received a call from my players and then your event contact updating us. She was also very helpful to us. We relocated and moved our staff around to be able to extend the time line to allow for more time than originally contracted as a courtesy and be able to stay until 9pm. I will need your mailing address and how to make the check payable to send you my fee along with additional amount in lieu of this devastating occurrence. My sincere apologies not only from me, but from my entire staff scheduled that day. I know this will not change the moment - but I would like to extend our apology not only in words, but in deed. I will also call you as a follow up tomorrow, I was awaiting your return from your honeymoon and wedding festivities to contact you via phone to express this sincere apology. Since I was in contact with Ana before, during and after we played, I was certain that all would turn out well from her positive words and support. I did not share the personal side of what had happened with me that day with Ana or the event coordinator, as I did not want to keep them from the event any further. See the event text messages and my exchange with your sister Ana via phone- sent to you on the completion of the dinner set before fireworks - before leaving the property and later that evening. Please be sure we will update our procedures so as to never have this happen again to anyone, especially such a beautiful Bride as you were. I am very disappointed that this happened especially. I will be in touch tomorrow most immediately. Sincerely, Shannon Caine Beautiful Music

Dear Ana, Please give my regards and apology to Digna. We would not have been able to play in the in clement weather. I am glad we were able to play for the reception portion. If she can call me after their honeymoon we will arrange for a partial refund.

I have only the highest rating for Shannon and Beautiful Music. Shannon was extremely professional and helpful in working with me on my son's wedding rehearsal dinner. The planning circumstances were more difficult with me being in Michigan and the event in Florida! Shannon made that issue a non-event. Everything went off very smoothly ... the music performed by the jazz trio was superb and the musicians were professional, very flexible and an excellent value. Their music really completed the event, raising it to a higher level of class and elegance. I would highly recommend Beautiful Music for any event!

Beautiful Music with Shannon Caine was suggested to me by my wedding planner, Lisa from E-Events. I contacted Shannon several weeks before my July 31, 2010 wedding. She immediately began to put me at ease with her knowledge of music and wedding experience. She provided me with ample suggestions of musical selections for our Knowles Chapel ceremony. I ended up choosing some obscure pieces as well as some traditional ones, and Shannon and the musicians really came through. Every detail that Shannon and I had discussed was executed to perfection.
I was a stressed out bride, not knowing the first thing about how to putting together the ceremony I had envisioned, and Shannon listened to me and was able to guide me in the right direction and deliver.
If you want your wedding to invoke emotion, the kind that gives you goose bumps - their is no other choice but Beautiful Music. Thank you Shannon for your tender spirit and brilliant talent. God Bless, Natasha

We recently hired Beautiful Music to play for our wedding ceremony (July 2010) and they were awesome. Shannon was great to work with and really went the extra mile helping us choose the music. We weren't interested in the standard run-of-the-mill wedding music and they had no problem finding other options and accommodating us. The ceremony went off without a hitch. The Beautiful Music trio and trumpeter worked well with the coordinator and other staff to pull off the timing just right. The way they handled everything really lowered my stress level! Great job!

They are obviously very experienced musicians and were familiar with my venue and it's music rules so there was no guessing. The day went perfectly, the music was beautiful!

Thank you for responding to my request to complete a review on our behalf on wedding wire. However, I am very disappointed and concerned by the comments on the review as we have never had a review less than 4.6 out of 5.0 for any reason. Our system sends automatic request to email when the payments are not posted on a designated contract due date. I was in direct communication with Karry following the email notice, and we had the issue cleared up right away, with no need bother you in further with the details. We were moving offices the week your payment was due and it did not get listed in the records properly. My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you. I enjoyed speaking with you immediately following your ceremony, and was so happy to see that you were not only happy but very pleased with our work and music performance. Therefore, I invited you to complete a review for us. We are always happy to accommodate any request of our clients including special requests on music and working with budgets. It was a pleasure working with Karry and her team, we were very happy to extend generous discount for your contract to honor your budget as well as honor your custom music program of modern music. If you would consider updating your rating to be a bit more favorable for our efforts in lieu of the details – it would be very much appreciated as to help us maintain our good standing and award designation. We will dismiss sending balance reminder emails moving forward. Thank you again.

Beautiful Music helped to make my wedding so special. They were very professional and sounded great. While not an inexpenisive addition to the wedding, having the trio really added to the overall feel of the event.

We booked the trio for 3 hours. That meant that they needed to have 3, 15 minute breaks. Not terrible, but good to know up front and to keep in mind for your planning.

Their repertoire was very large and I got many compliments. We had a flutist, cellist and violinist. I initially wanted all strings, but the flutist really did a great job and added a lot. If I had to do things over again, I would keep everything the same.

Shannon,

We cannot begin to thank you enough for the services you provided for our wedding. From the very beginning, you exuded professionalism, promptness, and helpful insight every step of the way. With instrumental song selections like "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Beautiful Day," our song selections were a little "out of the box" and more contemporary, but your team made it happen anyway! You met all of our needs and well exceeded our expectations. To us, the ceremony was the most important part of our wedding day. Every song we chose had special meaning to us. When the vocalists and pianist performed, they conveyed those emotions prefectly and everyone in the church could feel it! When Michelle & Eric sang "The Prayer," I cried along with many of our other guests. Our friends and family raved about the ceremony music during our reception and said it was the most beautiful ceremony they'd ever attended! Beautiful Music is worth every penny and I would recommend you any day of the week. Thank you for making our wedding ceremony simply magical!!

I was looking for a jazz band and booked Beautiful Music. Shannon was great to work with, and they even learned our first dance song as it was one they didn't know. They weren't exactly what I was looking for as I wanted a jazz band as if you stepped into a jazz club in Chicago. The music was very nice and the singer did a nice job, just not exactly as I had imagined.

Dear Melissa,

Thank you for taking time to review our services at our request. We appreciate the opportunity to play for you. You were a lovely Bride and client to work with at the Waldorf. I would have recommended a slightly larger jazz combo - band for the size of the ballroom, but I had to keep in mind the budget limitations we had discussed. The First Dance special Request - Solo was a perfect way to begin your reception - it was received well. We would have been glad to take any music requests from you for this segment as to create the ambience and sound you so desired. We appreciate again your comments as we will use this as a guide to create the perfect music for any client.

Ceremony/Bag Piper: One of our most important qualities of our wedding was our bag piper that we wanted at our ceremony. It was a surprise for our guests when we walked up the aisle escorted by a live bagpiper in Irish tradition. He played so beautifully and also played while our guests conjugated around the front of the church waiting for us to depart. I am so ecstatic that he was part of our wedding and am so pleased that Beautiful Music, Shannon Caine, was able to coordinate with us and make it possible. He was AMAZING!!!

Reception: We loved having a live BAND, especially one that was so easy to work with and sounds so great. We honestly thought that it was one of the highlights of our reception and wished it had been longer. :) They were definitely worth it and I will definitely use them again, when I plan another event. I would also like to mention that 6 months later, our guests are still raving about our wedding. Thank you for making it so perfect.

Ceremony/Bag Piper: One of our most important qualities of our wedding was our bag piper that we wanted at our ceremony. It was a surprise for our guests when we walked up the aisle escorted by a live bagpiper in Irish tradition. He played so beautifully and also played while our guests conjugated around the front of the church waiting for us to depart.

We used beautiful music for our wedding ceremony in December 2009. They were highly professional and brought a wonderful atmosphere to our wedding. My only complains were that they were unable to sing several of my favorite songs as a solo and we had to go with a more generic love song that is one of their standbys. Also the soloist, Eric was out of sync with the instruments during the second half of the solo song of our candle lighting ceremony. If we had to do it all over again we would use them but leave off the soloist. He sounded wonderful in the MP3 they sent us but a little disappointing in person.

hi Sarah,

Thank your for taking time to reply to my recent follow up requests for comments on your event. I am very disappointed with the comments on Eric as he is the consummate professional and performer. There was an issue with the viola player not being able to see her music which caused an unsettled sound, this has been noted. I was able to discuss this with Eric and the ensemble today. We are getting the Viola part fixed as we did not experience any problems previously on performances with our other players on this song request. Your solo request of Thankful was not arranged for our group at the time of your request on the email of 11/13/09. We would have needed more notice to prepare this special request for your event since it was not on the Repertoire Lists provided to you. I appreciate your comments and we will remedy this for future performances so there is not a repeat of transition problems or musical issues with the next presentation. It actually was not Eric, but one of the players not playing the changes correctly. My apologies that it did not go perfectly as it should have for you. Best Wishes to you and Yours. thank you again, Shannon Caine, Beautiful Music Final Music Program Love theme from Romeo and Juliet The Princess Bride-Storybook love Phantom of the Opera selections Processional of Mothers and Groom-The Prayer (solo) Processional: Wedding party enters, Jesu Joy of man’s desiring Bridal entrance: Canon in D Candle: You Raise me up-Josh Groban (solo) Recessional: Trumpet Voluntary by Clarke Postlude: Only time by Enya

Subject: RE: Ceremony music selections

Thank you Shannon. I really appreciate that you are trying to be the best that you can and I would still recommend you to people. In my opinion, our biggest problem with the ceremony was probably that we didn’t have adequate lighting. The musicians and Pastor both had trouble reading. The Pastor in fact, messed up horribly during a special reading at one point because he couldn’t see. LOL I have watched our video several times now and still stand by my previous comments about the solo… Truth be told though, I wasn’t angry at all, yet only laughed to myself by the difficulty everyone seemed to have with the darkness. I was just so happy to be getting married… not much really bothered me. I wouldn’t even have mentioned it if you hadn’t contacted me for comments.

Thanks again,
Sarah Whitmire Freeland

Shannon was more than responsive. My need was for ceremony music and a band and my request came on Monday morning for the following saturday. She found the most incredible entertainers and musicians for 35 guests who flew in from London for a wedding. I had less than 7 days to pull together an event for a very unique challenge. I did not meet the bride till the day of the wedding. Shannon and her follow through was beyond great. She kept hunting talent and the team of talent she organized, and delivered hours before the event were amazing.
Anyone who needs entertainment should know that Shannon is a can do, make it happen professional who, commits to your needs, delivers your requests, is polite, kind, and simply
the best. What I did not share is she did all this while pulling 6 other groups together for others, and on one of the busiest days of the year for weddings in Orlando. I still have not met her in person.. but my Bride was happy and that's what matters. Oh, Shannon then calls me on Sunday morning after the wedding on her way back from her gig...out of town... following through to ensure all went well.... Shannon and Beautiful Music equals Service beyond the Wondeful. Thank you SAhannon and talent.

BM was able to learn and perform original written music and worked well with my soloists with very little practice. They were only able to practice only a few minutes with my three soloists (one being the brides father), and it came off beautiful. The majority of my music was modern lite classical and religious. I had my own music director to communicate and write the music and work with them, however, my initial communication with BM was very good. My daughters wedding was at the Ritz and a high profile one and they added a very elegant touch to the ceremony.

Dear Dana,
Thank you for taking a survey at our request. My apologies for the misunderstanding of the recessional music, I am glad we were able to play tne 2nd choice. I appreciate your comments, but was very concerned when our score for value of cost was less than 5.0, since we discounted the services and included all fees with travel in this discounted contract to meet your budget needs. I also noticed that our professionalism score was less than 5.0, not sure why this was marked less than 5.0 since we displayed high standards concerning the performance and communications. Please let me know how the quality of service could have been improved - we received high marks from the wedding coordinator for this event, so your rating was not quite what I expected. Thank you again for your time and efforts to ensure our continued success. Best, Shannon Caine

Shannon had great suggestions and was fantastic communicating with us. The violinist for the ceremony added a touch of elegance to the wedding. He worked well with the church pianist. At the reception we had a four piece band instead of a dj and they were excellent. Live muscians really add class to any occasion and Shannnon's were the best! We had a few requests but left everything else up to them. We thought the muscians were an excellent value for the talent that they provided. We wouldn't have changed a thing! Thanks Shannon.

My husband, Gilbert, and I were beyond blessed to have Beautiful Music perform the ceremony music for our wedding. Having grown up with a family in the music industry, we had some unique ideas for ceremony music. Our desire was to feature songs by Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and other artists that are less traditional for wedding services. Shannon and her team were not only open to the idea, they were extremely excited, going above and beyond to accommodate our desires! The music exceeded our expectations and we couldn't have been happier with the passion, professionalism, and quality of performance. From beginning to end, the music was just perfect and we were beyond thrilled. Just two nights ago, we savored the memories all over again with a glass of wine as we watched our wedding video and were reminded anew of just how much the music that was played set the perfect tone for our ceremony! Without hesitation, I recommend Shannon and Beautiful Music--shop no further, they are amazing!
