Melodies by Meg (String Instruments)
Meg provided solo violin music for our processional and recessional. She sounded great! She was very responsive to our emails and phone calls. She traveled about 30 miles to our event. She was on time and flexible. We whole heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for elegant music for their event.

Wow! Thanks for the great review! I appreciate it. I loved your flowers and color choice. Purple is my favorite color. Absolutely beautiful. Keep in touch and thanks again!
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!
Meg did ceremony music for a wedding I planned that took place Jan. 26, 2008. She was very professional and played beautifully. She would be an asset to any event. Thank you for a job well done Meg.

Wedding Cordinators are a HUGE help! I cannot stress that enough. Having an experienced cordinator helps everyone involved stay organized. Things can sometimes get confusing on the day of so I strongly suggest one to reduce stress for everyone involved.
