Wedding Ceremonies

Rite of Marriage


Catholic Weddings

We can provide musical accompaniment for Rite of Marriage ceremonies accommodating Catholic church traditions as well as music that embodies each couple's unique bond.


"Make your wedding a real celebration - because marriage is

a celebration!"- Pope Francis addressing engaged couples

Ensembles

A string quartet is our most popular option for all types of wedding ceremonies. Our string players can perform music of almost any style. We can also have our strings accompany a vocalist, pianist, guitarist, trumpeter, organist, and other instrumentations.

Most accessible Catholic Mass music is written for vocals and piano, and sometimes includes a part specifically written for guitar in PVG format. Providing us with a list of the music you would like with what instruments you prefer as soon as possible will give us more opportunity to produce exactly what you want.


Custom arrangements can also be written for mass music. For example we have multiple versions of the Twila Paris song How Beautiful. One is arranged for string quartet, another for string quartet accompanying a cantor. Both are very beautiful. We

even have a third arrangement for string quartet that has no modulation for a shorter duration.
