Wedding Ceremony Music Frequently Asked Questions
Couples often ask how many players are needed to wow their guests; I like to think of it this way: if you're having 160 guests or less, a solo instrument for the ceremony and cocktail hour would be lovely. Once you go above 160, I suggest adding players or considering an ensemble; but this isn't to say you can't have a string quartet if you're hosting seventy-five guests. The players we provide are trained professionals who won't overpower your festivities.
Beyond live music, we also offer satellite sound systems for ceremonies. To explain, this is a system that would amplify your officiant, each of your vows, and any readers or speakers you may have for your guests. Therefore, while not for everyone, this system is recommended for ceremonies held outdoors.
Our musicians play comfortably without amplification; however, we strongly suggest considering a satellite sound system with guest counts over seventy-five.
If you're interested in us providing ceremony music, we allow you to select a song for when: you walk down the aisle, your wedding party walks down the aisle, your partner's wedding party walks down the aisle, as well as a recessional song for you and your fiancé. Further, we also ask for you to give us a general idea of the style of music - jazz, classical, pop-oriented - you'd like to hear leading up to the prelude.
Having been in the wedding business for over twenty years, we have a vast network of conservatory and professionally trained substitutes in case of emergency.
If you have to reschedule your event, we will roll over your deposit to a mutually agreed-upon date free of charge.
Yes. We do detail meetings 10 days before a client’s affair. Most clients prefer to meet in person and I make every effort to accommodate that. Sometimes due to time, distance or people being to darn busy we do it over the phone. Whatever is best for you.
Absolutely. Over a million dollars worth.
