Our wedding ceremony fees are are flat fees rather than for an exact length of time since it can be hard to predict how long it will actually last and if it will start on time.  Some types of ceremonies may have an extra fee for the extra time, particularly for Catholic full mass weddings and Indian weddings.

If you wish to add reception time to a ceremony, the ceremony fee is considered the first hour beginning 30 minutes before ceremony start with your prelude music.  Please ask us for an accurate quote.

JUNE through SEPTEMBER:  A minimum of 2 hours is required for all Saturday weddings.
 
Our rates online are always up-to-date, but subject to change.  Please contact us to check availability.  A deposit is required to reserve our services and to lock in our current rate. Our service is not subject to sales tax.
 
We charge a fee of $50 for special music requests when new sheet music must be found, purchased, arranged and rehearsed.
 
A travel fee may apply.  Please include your event location in your inquiry.
 
AMPLIFICATION:  We do not charge extra to amplify our group when needed, but this must be arranged for in advance as equipment is not always available.  If you would like a wireless lapel mic for your wedding officiant, we charge an additional $75 for mic, speaker, set up and sound check.  It's a shame when your family and friends cannot hear your beautiful wedding ceremony!  Often a loud voice is not enough.
