Emily and her fellow musicians are so incredibly talented. Guests are still talking about how nice the music was at the ceremony and cocktail hour. She is very professional, quick to respond, and has reasonable prices that although they are a little higher than we were hoping to pay, they were completely worth the price and I wouldn't have gone with anyone else or done it any other way. Their music is so beautiful and it just added the perfect romantic touch to our wedding. She even does Cinderella and other Disney romantic songs that were perfect for our style since I was wearing an Alfred Angelo Cinderella dress. So happy to have chosen Bella Musica!! Highly recommend them!!!

La Bella Musica was great to work with. From song selection to the ceremony performance, they were accommodating, reasonably priced, extremely professional and very talented musicians. We mostly stuck to classical and traditional songs which they play beautifully. The music perfectly complemented our ceremony.

I was very lucky to book La Bella Musica for my wedding day. My contact (Emily) was prompt, professional and very fun to work with prior to the date. They had such a large collection of music and were willing to learn additional songs that weren't on their repertoire if need be. My husband was a professional french horn player was extremely impressed with their modern and classical songs. (They were able to collaborate and give suggestions when I was at a loss.) On the day of, they were on time, accommodating and played beautifully. People had specifically stopped to tell me how much they enjoyed the music during the ceremony and the variety playing during the cocktail hour. If I were to have another wedding, I'd book them in a heart beat!

We absolutely loved the string trio!! Emily was awesome to work with, and she and the other musicians played beautifully during our ceremony and cocktail hour. They really added so much elegance and interest to the evening. We are beyond happy that we chose to have them at both our ceremony and cocktail hour! Their pricing is also quite reasonable compared to other groups we looked at.

We hired the string trio of La Bella Musica to play at our outdoor wedding ceremony and are very glad that we did! Prior to the wedding most of my communication was with Emily - she was responsive, professional, and always helpful. She helped me decide what size ensemble would be best for our ceremony and gave me some great suggestions for music. The trio arrived on time and were ready to play as guests were seated. The music was beautiful and was the perfect finishing touch to the ceremony. My only regret is that I was not able to thank them in person following my ceremony for wonderful job!

Everyone says they were very good; I didn’t hear much of them, but what I heard sounded fantastic! I’m so glad we went with live musicians. The only negative is that I thought they were playing the wrong recessional because it started differently than the song typically does, so every recessional pic of me has that “they’re not playing the right song” look on my face. It would have been nice to know that in advance. Also, the postlude seemed a little shorter than I expected. But, still, highly recommended.

La Bella Musica responded with the following comments:

We're sorry you thought the beginning of the recessional was the wrong piece but the beginning we have is how majority of the Beatles recordings start! (It's usually played by trumpets and trombones before the singing starts)

Our postlude was cut short because the Meeting House started playing music outside of the room the ceremony was in (where the reception was being held, I believe?) We had continued to play postlude music for a few minutes after the room had completely emptied out as the staff were breaking down/setting up around us because we figured your guests could still hear us outside but stopped when music came on as we can't compete with amplified music!

Morgan and Elizabeth played perfectly at our outdoor wedding. They arrived on time and played before, during, and shortly after our ceremony. They were so sweet, coming up to us and making sure they did everything that we needed. Emily, who was my contact up until the wedding, was so helpful with music selections and answered all my questions. We got compliments on the ceremony music - it was lovely. Highly recommended!
