I was somewhat overwhelmed but from what I do remember, the ceremony music was beautiful. Meg was easy to work with and did not ask for a lot of direction. I would highly recommend her if you want to add a classy touch to your ceremony.

Thank you for the great review. I really enjoyed your ceremony. The sand glasses was something new. I really liked the idea behind it. The two becomes one. It was a great wedding and I enjoyed playing for you. Thanks again!
