My husband and I recently got married in Vancouver's Brock House Restaurant. We've hired Musical Occasions to play a violin and harp duo for our ceremony and was worth e-v-e-r-y penny. Morgan was very responsive, helpful and professional. Everything was communicated via email. We picked our processional, signing the registry and recessional choices of music. The musicians came in on time and entertained our guests before the actual ceremony, and our guests loved it! It definitely added a very classy and romantic ambiance. Thank you Musical Occasions!

I had always wanted a harp for my wedding ceremony and I got it through Musical Occasions! I was extremely impressed with the coordination of reserving the trio as Morgan was extremely efficient and very thorough with explanations and details for all the questions that I had! My ceremony was outside and unfortunately the Vancouver skies were on the verge of raining (which was unexpected for august :( ), but the trio came and set themselves up under an appropriate covering (tented reception area)! Thank you very much for playing my favorite classical pieces and going above and beyond to find modern songs to play during the cocktail hour!

We had our ceremony outdoors at Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club in the garden. We hired the piano/violin duo to play the music for our ceremony and they did an outstanding job! We had selected 3 custom songs for our ceremony and they were able to play all 3 of them: "Marry You" by Bruno Mars, "All of Me" by John Legend, and "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. We left it up to the musicians to play their own music prior to the ceremony, during the signing, and after the ceremony and they played very soft, beautiful melodies. The music was so beautiful and it was such a nice touch to have live music at our ceremony. Our guests kept telling us how much they enjoyed the live music in the garden. We highly recommend Musical Occasions for your wedding - or any event that is!

Muscial Occasions provided us with a string trio for our wedding ceremony. They did a lovely job and provided an elegant ambience. We had numerous compliments on how good they were. They even learned a new song for our recessional (Under the Sea) that added a personalized touch to our ceremony. I would highly recommend!

WOW. WOW. WOW.
Entertainment is of utmost importance to us. We had a french theme wedding so we wanted french themed music for parts of our day. We hired multiple musicians from Musical Occasions (20 total) and every single one of them blew us away!
We had an accordion player playing french love songs as our guests arrived, a string octet as we walked down the aisle, a gospel choir, singer, horn section and 8 strings to replicate the "Love Actually" scene at the end of the movie during the recessional, a 4 piece french jazz quartet to play through our dinner hour and the best DJ in the world for our reception!
We had pretty much EVERY guest come up to us during the night to tell us that the entertainment was next lever exceptional.

We are SO thrilled that everyone loved it as we all know that if your entertainment is lame then everybody will remember that! Thank you Musical Occasions and your very detail oriented team for making our day AMAZING on every level. We loved everything about your service.

Musical Occasions provided an amazing String Quartet for our Catholic church ceremony. The company was well versed in Catholic ceremonies and was aware of many song restrictions that some churches have on music selections.

Musical Occasions had a huge variety of classical song choices that beautifully accompanied our ceremony. Morgan Trerise was professional and responded to my inquiries right away. He was flexible when I needed to make last minute changes and gave me some great suggestions when I wasn't too sure what would fit well. When our priest officiated the ceremony in a different order as we had planned, the string quartet adapted flawlessly on the spot without any hiccups. We were so impressed and we received tons of compliments on how beautiful the music was.

We would definitely recommend Musical Occasions for future couples!

I looked around for a long time for a musician to play live music during my ceremony and cocktail hour that would fit the modern vibe of my wedding, without being too classical. I finally booked with guitarist and vocalist Ruel Morales through Musical Occasions after listening to his renditions of some popular music on the website. We asked him to sing during both the processional and recessional. At first I was a bit apprehensive that I wouldn't get to communicate what I wanted properly through a third party, but Morgan was more then accommodating. Ruel showed up on time, and impressed many of our guests. He was amazing, polite, and sounded perfect, like the sound clips posted on the website. I highly recommend them both for your next event. :-)
