We hired Musical Occasions for our ceremony and our reception after on September 13th.
For the ceremony we had the Harp, Flute, Violin Trio.
For the reception we had the String Trio.
Here is the list of things that made Musical Occasions an excellent choice:
1- their customer service is just flawless. Morgan from Musical Occasions was very attentive, I had all my emails answered quickly and thoroughly.
2- The musicians arrived on-time, in professional black-tie attire and were very pleasant to deal with.
3- The music was just out of this world magical. During our ceremony, you'd have though you were transported in time and space to some garden party in France. The reception music, Classical, was also so good that a few of our guest turned their chairs around to watch the trio. Everyone commented on how great the music was.

All and all, I am so happy hiring musical occasions and can't wait to have another event where I can hire them again.
Huge Thanks to Morgan and her team!

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!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Morgan and her Musical Occasions family! We had commissioned a string quintet to play during our wedding ceremony, and had requested specific songs to be played. We had an idea to have two of our favourite choral works playing during our processional and signing, and Morgan and the musicians were kind enough to specially arrange the works for string instruments. Hearing those first few strains of our processional song was an emotional point for me; and to our guests, the music made every difference by enveloping that moment with a special aura. We had no problems during the planning process, and we heard no complaints from our planning team, and to be honest we could hardly expect it. Morgan and her team were professional, kind and supportive throughout.

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!
