Weddings & Special Events

Programs, Pricing & Music

Pricing—Standard ceremony and special event pricing starts at: $200 per musician. A standard ceremony includes Prelude (seating music), Processional pieces for the Grandparents, Parents, Bridesmaids, and Bride, Solo/Sand Ceremony/Unity Candle music, and a Recessional. This price also includes travel and one meeting with me to select music and go over any of the particulars of your ceremony.

Music—I develop the program with the wedding couple and review the music with you in my studio if necessary. You can request any piece of music, or choose from samples you hear on this site. Please see my audio samples. Below are some sample programs that might help you with music choices.

You can choose any music you want for your ceremony. Below is just a sample of suggestions that work well.

Sample Celtic Wedding Program

Prelude - various cape breton, celtic, folk pieces for fiddle and piano

Processional - Parents, Bridesmaids, Bride

  • Be Thou My Vision (Slaine)
  • Cape Breton Wedding Reel/Hamish The Carpenter/Put Me In The Big Chest
  • Give Me Your Hand - Irish Wedding Music
  • Margaret's Waltz

Recessional

  • Mairi's Wedding

Sample Classical Wedding Program

Prelude - various light classical and traditional pieces are performed while the guests are arriving.

Processional - Parents, Bridesmaids, Bride

Solo (optional)

A solo is a part in the ceremony where a piece is featured. Usually in between readings, or before the Unity candle/Sand ceremony. Solos are usually chosen by the couple because it is a song of significance to them. Sometimes a singer performs or another instrumentalist as well.

Recessional

Postlude

Various pieces are played while the guests exit.

Cocktail Hour

I usually recommend the Tom Robinson Trio for a jazz cocktail hour—contact Tom directly. If you want fiddle/piano music, classical violin/piano music, or solo piano for your cocktail hour I can provide that for you.
