  • Jessica at Venus Ensembles came highly recommended by my wedding coordinator, and from the very beginning, she was very helpful and responsive in our communication. I appreciate her for being flexible when I decided to completely change my pre-ceremony music from classical repertoire to more contemporary pieces. The string quartet performed all of the modern pieces superbly, and then for the ceremony music they were simply beautiful. My personal favorite was the Dvorak piece they performed when I walked down the aisle, it was such an amazing rendition that it made that moment even more meaningful for me. My husband and I highly recommend working with Venus Ensemble - a class act and a talented group of musicians.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Jessica years ago through my job at Lincoln Center, before I even met my husband. When I got engaged, there was no doubt that I'd hire her and her musicians to play at my ceremony. She is professional and kind, just a joy to work with. The talent of ensemble is unbelievable and they were the perfect touch to my wedding ceremony. The Venus Ensembles repertoire is vast and people raved about the music. I didn't get to really hear much until our DVD came in, since we missed the cocktail hour, where the group continued to play until our DJ took over. I am so pleased that I got to have this group perform, they took the pop songs that I loved, and a TV theme show song, and played them seamlessly. I think live music makes a ceremony much more personal and I cried when I saw my bridal party walking down the aisle on the DVD to my favorite song, that she had the team learn, as it wasn't in their song list. Truly made my day.

  • Jessica Meyer of Venus Ensembles is committed to making your ceremony absolutely perfect! She is beyond attentive leading up to your event and has an incredible network of musicians willing and able to play your event. The musicians were top notch. I trained classically on violin for 15 years and was beyond pleased with the music at my ceremony. The musicians transformed my ceremony space into a peaceful oasis and I will always remember my ceremony music for the rest of my life. I keep replaying the songs over and over again in my mind because they were absolutely lovely! If you are looking for professional musicians, Venus Ensembles is for you. They are a bit pricier than the average wedding musician but ABSOLUTELY worth it. I wouldn't second guess this decision...act now!

  • We hired a string trio to play the ceremony music for our wedding and they were absolutely phenomenal! Jessica was very easy to work with and assured us that she understood our vision: classic with a twist. They played mainly contemporary pieces for us and it was a very personal touch to have some of our favorite songs included in our day. Our guests raved about how fun it was to listen to the trio as they waited for the event to start, and even won high praise from some of our own talented musician friends! Their prices are very reasonable as well -- you cannot go wrong hiring Jessica and her team to play at your event.

  • We were thrilled to have Venus Ensembles for our cocktail hour musicians. We booked a string quartet that played a great selection of music including U2 and Guns n Roses. Our guests thought the music was great. In addition, Jessica was very easy to deal with in handling the booking and logistics. We highly recommend them.

  • So awesome! In keeping with the rest of our wedding vibe, we wanted to bring in the beauty and class of a string trio for our ceremony and cocktail hour, but the last thing we wanted was for it to be uptight or staid. I was comfortable with Jessica from the first time we spoke. She was immediately into our idea of using popular music and the group was more than willing to learn new pieces that weren't already on their extremely extensive list. We had a bunch of rock musicians and musical theatre friends at our wedding and they really enjoyed hearing these different takes on pieces they know so well. It provided a really fun, quirky factor to our wedding that would have been sorely missed otherwise. Jessica and her colleagues arrived early and set right to work and were really lovely people. Venus Ensembles added such a special element to our wedding that I never thought we'd need, but am now so very happy we had.

  • I cannot thank Jessica and the Venus Ensembles team enough for the amazing job they did at my wedding ceremony this summer. They completed the picture for my dream wedding with their beautiful music! Jessica was a pleasure to work with - truly a professional as she was both knowledgeable and attentive to mine and my fiance's needs for our ceremony. We wanted a string quartet that played contemporary songs, and Venus flawlessly executed every request we had. One of the songs we wanted as our recessional, "Jesse's Girl," wasn't on their list, but Jessica found the sheet music and said it wouldn't be a problem. They absolutely knocked this out of the ballpark, and all of our guests are still talking about how perfect this song was (my fiance's name is Jesse). Thank you so much, you were amazing and truly made our ceremony perfect!

  • The musicians from Venus Ensembles were wonderful! Because ours was an outdoor wedding, we had concerns that the sound from unamplified instruments wouldn’t carry. Jessica, however, helped us select the perfect combination of instruments and number of musicians (cello, violin and flute). The CDs Jessica sent us were helpful in previewing the compositions and making our selections. We chose a combination of classical composers and more contemporary music. When needed, they found the sheet music for some specific requests. The musicians performed beautifully during our cocktail hour and ceremony, filling the space with an enjoyable ambiance of classical music. A number of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed hearing classical renditions of some pop and Beatles tunes. It was all very tasteful and sophisticated. The musicians were friendly and nicely dressed. They independently communicated with our DJ and the venue’s coordinator, and integrated themselves into the event, know... Read more

  • Venus Ensembles was a wonderful part of our wedding. We had a string quartet for our ceremony and they performed beautifully. I walked down the aisle to "Moon River" from Breakfast at Tiffany's and even our officiant, who sees hundreds of weddings, told me that she got teary-eyed! Even the most ardent classical music fans and professionals in our families were pleased with the quartet, who played a selection of classical music as prelude to the ceremony. .Additionally, Jessica Meyer was a joy to work with in planning the event. Planning a wedding can be stressful and this was one aspect I did not have to worry about.

  • Working with Jessica Meyer and Venus Ensembles was a great experience. We had very particular songs in mind for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Jessica was completely on board with our ideas. We hired a string trio with an oboe for the ceremony, a piano player for cocktail hour, and Tara and Co. for the reception. The guests were absolutely dazzled with the music! Each segment of the evening had wonderful musicians! Many people commented on how good Tara and Co. were and I heard things like "there's nothing like the perfect band to make a reception spectacular." Tara and her band when above and beyond. When one of the brides (a former musical theatre performer) was asked by guests to sing, Tara graciously stepped aside and the band backed up the bride. It was a very special! Do not hesitate to hire Venus Ensembles for your wedding! You will not be disappointed.

  • Venus Ensembles provided us with a duo (violin and violist) for our wedding ceremony. It was a pleasure to work with Jessica, who owns the company. She is so knowledgeable and helpful, and she made the entire process simple and stress-free. The music at our wedding was beautiful and enjoyed by all. Thank you, Venus Ensembles!

  • Venus Ensembles were amazing the day of my wedding. They were very professional. They performed for my ceremony only but if I had known, I would have booked them also for my cocktail hour. I would use them again in a heartbeat. The best part is that their cost is very reasonable. Thank you Venus Ensembles!!! L. Robinson (Queens, NY)
